Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

There is something about Cena/Brock that I don't like. I understand that it has a real fight feel to it and how Lesnar was the legitimate fighter while Cena was the underdog sports entertainer, but that finish really, really hurts. It's a typical super-Cena esque finish and is pretty weak compared to the beating Lesnar gave him throughout the match.

Still a great match and a top 10 match for 2012.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I just watched WWE Best Pay-Per-View Matches of 2012 and Lesnar vs Cena wasn't on the DVD lol.

Michael Cole:"The biggest Smackdown and WWE superstar of all time,the legendary Undertaker".
Mark Henry:"it's hard not to put The Undertaker in the same breath as Hogan and Rock because not only has he served more years as them, but collectively, I'm sure he's sold out and made more money than all of them."

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's probably due to the fact that the match is also on Lesnar's new re-release. WWE don't usually do repeats on their dvd releases.

Except for Taker/HHH and Rock/Cena but they were arguably bigger matches for the dvd market.

I don't think Punk/Bryan OTL or either Punk/Jericho match is on there either, are they?

I had a look at the listing, and WWE are usually pretty good with their best of's, but this one has some huge omissions.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I still think the match did great things for Brock despite the loss. Brock didn't even have to resort to using weapons like Cena and was toying with him at several points in the match.

The impression I got from the matches with Cena/HHH is that if anyone has a normal 1 v 1 with Lesnar they stand no chance. Due to him being a BEAST.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I just watched Undertaker/HHH HIAC WM 28. Man, that joint in amazing bro. They put on an outstanding match in minimalist fashion.

But is it MOTY?

*sighs* its the best worked match of the year. As far as storytelling is concerned its unmatched. When it comes to in-ring action its a little behind Lesnar/Cena and also Punk/Bryan MITB (another very good storytelling match) but the way its worked puts it over the top. The false finishes were convincing, the facials, the actual words spoken, the emotion, the sentimentality of it all, its just amazing.


Right now I have it at MOTY. I will return once I watch another MOTY contender in Punk/Bryan MITB.

Probably because of the blood. That event got a TV-14 rating and its because of that match. Its probably a calculated deal to ensure the DVD gets a PG rating.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker/HHH isn't a 5 star match. MOTY fine but it seemed like a tame No DQ match inside a cell(which wasn't even used much). HHH/Jericho HIAC was better

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I wonder if the Extreme Rules DVD censors the blood with the black and white screen?

Cena/Brock isn't only MOTY imo but it is also feud of the year. I believe WWE gave us Cena/Brock as a way of saying sorry for giving us that piece of crap Cena/Rock.

You see,every feud in wresting is designed to make money. However, the company doesn't directly tell you it to your face. And that's what they did with Cena/Rock. What was a feud marked by hatred in 2011, became a marketing tool by 2012. It didn't even feel like a feud. There was no heat nothing. WWE told us upfront, "Hey, we're only doing this for the money!" The performances by Rida and MGK didn't help either. Not to mention the match sucked. From an in-ring standpoint, it wasn't a bad match. Actually it was pretty good. But it didn't tell the story it was supposed to tell. Point is, Cena/Rock blew and WWE wasted a year. Did they make a lot of money? Hell yeah! But they didn't squeeze every penny possible out of it.

Cena/Brock on the other hand was a feud. There was heat. The 3 weeks leading up to Cena/Brock was by far the 3 best weeks of the year and of all time. Reminded me of Punk/Cena build from 2011. It had that same intensity. It had heat. Cena/Brock turned it up a lot more though and it went from heat to scorching hot. From Lesnar attacking Cena, to the big brawl on RAW, everything about this feud screamed "big fight" Here, WWE made money without telling you like it is. You just had to put out the money for Cena/Lesnar. It was a feud.

I believe, since the feud was so early in the year, that a lot of people have forgotten it by now but if you look back on it, it is one of the best booked feuds (or match in this case) of all time. Cena/Brock not only gets MOTY from me but Feud of The Year as well.
