Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Only low point in the Cena/Brock feud was the Brock/BIG JOHNNY contract signing which was such a bad idea to let those two talk for 20+mins.

Despite it only being a month long feud it had some great moments:

Brock's return and subsequent attack on Cena.
The Cena/Brock confrontation and Brock busting Cena's mouth.
Awesome UFC style Brock video package . ( Whats running down his leg? PISS!)
Great Edge WAKE UP! promo to Cena.
And the awesome match they gave us at Extreme Rules.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm also pretty sure the Trips/Lesnar match has hurt Lesnar's drawing abilities to some degree.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm no fan of the cena/lesnar feud. In my opinion it sucked. It started with a bang but when Lesnar started talking it went downhill quick, especially live interviews on TV. Its a fantastic match though, I just feel the heat fizzled when Lesnar had to talk.


I don't know what I would pick for feud of the year. Not many feuds last year had any fuckin heat.

A pretentious wrestling match? never heard of such a thing.

Can imagine DA CASUALS thinking HHH V Lesnar was a bore, therefore the thought of another slow, plodding Lesnar might turn then away.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cena/Punk SummerSlam 2011 ***

I actually ordered this PPV, and I can't believe how disappointed I was with that main event. It was very average, and that is being kind about it. To be fair, I think WWE stretched that storyline abit too thin. It should have ended with their MITB match the month before, or that next night on Raw. But extending it another month and trying to get another PPV main event out of it (especially on one of the biggest shows of the year), proved to be asking too much. By that time, the story had already been told and the match displayed that. I can certainly understand why alot of people here have that match in the *** or even less range.

Professional wrestling, as with all other forms of entertainment is pretentious generally.



I understand what he's saying though, but I disagree.


Punk/Bryan (MITB) ★ ★ ★ ★ 1/4
Upon second watch my opinion hasn't really changed. Its a great match, I understand the story a bit better. Last night I said it was "too much about AJ" and now I see that it was supposed to be about her the whole time. I had to remember that AJ is in this for attention, and in her mind these guys are fighting over her, so she's in the way a lot by design. Maybe it wasn't the best thing to do, but the story was very well told with AJ interfering benefitting both guys and not really allowing her to "making a choice". I think the pacing was pretty good, I said it was slow last night. It also had a very good finish and the crowd brought a damn good atmosphere.

I was mad about it too, but then I jjust went out and bought the Extreme Rules dvd. So worth it.

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.
That's actually a good thing, because both were on Punk's set. Makes it much easier for collectors and/or completists, plus Best in the World was a top seller.

I can see that being a big factor as well.

It isn't. No blood is censored but I felt like some parts were edited cause I could've swore Cena was on the mat getting checked out for a much longer period of time. One second the ref is looking at him, then they cut back and he already has gloves on. 90% in tact it appeared.

Maybe, but a best of 2012 PPV DVD that doesn't include:

Punk/Bryan OTL
Punk/Jericho ER
Sheamus/Bryan ER
Lesnar/Cena ER

seems like an entirely incomplete set to me. That's like 4 of the top 10 WWE PPV matches of the year.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Had ER for a week now, yet to watch it again. Waiting until... perhaps 2morrow when my parents are both at work and I can use the big TV downstairs and see it in all its HD Bluray quality glory .

Glad I'm not the only one who felt the disappointment. It was just so slow and was pretty much a poor man's rehash of their MITB match which still held up the second time I watched it. I admit I was very into the storyline at the time, though. It's just now that I look back with the mark glasses off, it just doesn't feel nearly as great as I remember it being.
