Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I ended up watching that 6 man TLC match like 6 or 7 times in the week that I had the PPV, I enjoyed it as much as I did on the 1st watch as I did the last. Very few matches have that effect on you. My MOTY.

Randomly taking Vengeance;
- The Rock vs Kurt Angle vs Undertaker
- Batista vs Triple H
- Kurt Angle vs Brock Lesnar vs Big Show
- Chris Benoit vs Triple H
- The Rock vs Chris Jericho
- Randy Orton vs Edge
- Undertaker vs John Cena
- Eddie Guerrero vs Chris Benoit
- John Cena vs Christian vs Chris Jericho
- Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle
RVD vs Edge from Vengeance 2006 is a pretty decent match, not sure it's one of the best in Vengeance PPV history, but it's pretty good.

A very good match, as with most Punk/Cena encounters.

Have to relive the lucha match. More than certain I love it. Others:

Ladder - *****
Vengeance - ****1/4
HIAC - ****1/2

I have it at 3 stars match. Cause it's not a bad match. It's a pretty standard match. How can you call a match that had Eve working and playing her character to perfection in the match and great storytelling a bad match?
My guess is b/c the divas match was trash like how every other match involving them usually is.

Has Sheamus/Show IV happened yet? I swear I saw spoilers for that somewhere.

Punk/Ryback TLC and THE ROCK on Raw tonight.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

They had a Lumberjack match on the New Years' Eve edition of Raw. Not seen it but people seemed to like it a bunch.

Agreed on Benoit/Jericho being the best singles ladder match of the decade, though Sheamus/Morrison isn't far behind for how creative and unique the match was. Rey/Psicosis is a really great match, watched it last year for the WCW poll and it made my list. They have great chemistry and Psicosis bumps like an absolute freak. Think I preferred Liger/Rey from Starrcade '96 more though. Liger comes prepared as an abusive bully and works a lot more violent which is definitely a step up from standard Juniors Liger. Tajiri/Psicosis from ECW 8/25/00 is also really tremendous as far as Psicosis singles matches in America go. More of a Tajiri showcase truth be told, but its damn good.

That's a very good match as is Randy Orton/Kurt Angle from that event. Definitely interchangeable with one or two of the lesser matches on my top 10.

Not as good as MITB, but the usual Punk/Cena chemistry shines again.

I'd have Lesnar/Cena, Punk/Bryan, Sheamus/Show & Bryan/Sheamus definitely ahead of it. I'd also probably have Ambrose/Regal II from personal preference, but any other match would require serious consideration. Basically its great stuff.
John Cena vs. CM Punk(c) - Night of Champions 2012

Meh I'm not with you on this one at all lol. Everything was going great up until the finishing stretch. It actually reminded me of the HHH/Cena match from NOC 08 where Trips had a counter for most of Cena's moves and they were checkmating each other all the way through. Unlike that match however, the ending to this was contrived beyond belief and started to annoy me. It made me roll my eyes if I'm being honest. Finisher, kickout, finisher, kickout, finisher, kickout. That's literally what it was. Usually I don't mind that, if it fits with the story, but this felt contrived as hell to me this time. I knew they were going to kickout. What ever happened to finishers actually finishing matches, huh? All they did here was undermine their own moves. MITB had those intangibles surrounding it so the finisher kickouts truly felt like something special. These ones though, way too forced imo. Cena kicked out of 2 GTS and a Rock Bottom back to back and this is just a regular wrestling match. Then there was the random back suplex to end the match because Cena goes for that move all the time. There was some great stuff in there though and Punk's gear was pretty awesome. I loved a lot of the counters. That's one thing Punk/Cena excel at imo. Their counters to the others moves are always fun to watch.

I'd go **** for this. Like I said before, had the finishing stretch not been so retarded, this could have kicked into another gear. Unfortunately, it didn't. Not for me anyways.
