Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah that was impressive, and this is coming from someone who hasn't been Punk's biggest fan recently. Rock was pretty bad content-wise, but he definitely did what he does best - pump up the crowd. If nothing else the segment makes me want to see the title match, and that's all you can ask for from a promo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think it's compelling because everybody's happy. The Punk marks get their shoot based promos which they will love to eat up, while the Rock marks get their guy doing what he does best, and that's interacting with the crowd.

One show in and it's already better than the fuckfest that was the horrendous Rock-Cena feud. My only problem is simple ; WHY ARE WE GETTING THIS AT THE RUMBLE AND NOT AT MANIA. JUST HAVE ROCK WIN THE RUMBLE FOR FUCK SAKES. This better not all end up culminating in a Rock-Cena II matchup or I'm going to be pissed. Rock-Brock or bust

"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It was a great promo from BOTH. Rocky did what he does best and Punk did EXACTLY what Cena SHOULD have done last year, no goofy smiles, just a serious promo. Already excited for Punk/Rock from one promo than i was from a whole year's worth of Rock/Cena.

Cooke Puss was just as pathetic as Fruity Pebbles though

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Absolutely loved the promo had me hooked the entire time and the Tyson Kidd mention certainly helped.

at that definition of COOKIE PUSS

And for the matches:

Punk/Ryback - ***1/2
Cena/Ziggler - ***

The fact that Ziggler didn't win after the superkick killed me inside.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Rock/Punk promo blows anything from the Rock V Cena feud out of the water.

Good god fancy that, two wrestlers giving a shit about what one and the other is saying to each other, putting each other over as a threat and showing some intensity out there. CENA I HOPE YOU WERE WATCHING!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Why isn't everybody talking about John Cena overcoming those odds at the start of the show?

How big was the gulf in quality from Cena's promo ( not ziggler's bit) to what we got later in Rock/Punk. If you ever need an example of why Cena is disliked by men then this was it.

The closing promo was fantastic. Just excellent. Only a few cringe-worthy moments (worked shoot of the production guy telling him to wrap it up, Cole and King's laugh track,COOKIE PUSS , etc.). When it comes to selling a PPV match, and strictly just reminding people WHEN a PPV IS (20 days), I can't think of one better in YEARS. Punk sold Rock's insults SO WELL. No exaggerated, shocked faces, but none of the Cena "wow that wasn't funny let me fake laugh and look into the camera and talk to my Dad" shit. The last line and the Rock Bottom were just so good.

"Your arms are too short to box with God" is a money line. That sort of line deserves to live in wrestling lore like "I need to beat you rock, I need it more than anything you could ever imagine...". I don't care if it's not original, it was that moment when in an argument everyone holds their breath. And while the tattoo stuff was stupid the Rock nailed it to close it out. That's what happens when 2 of the best in the industry ever go at it

I don't even know where they go from here, because that was a money promo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just got done with the last '97 RAW, watched all year plus the PPV's. Great, great year for the WWF, had two GOAT-contender matches (Hart/Austin and HBK/Taker) as well as some cool storylines (the beginning of Taker/Kane, Austins rise & the screwjob/DX formation). Yeah it had it's crap, just like any year (Goldust in the last two months, god that was... different).

Top 10 matches:

1) HBK/Taker HIAC (IYH: Badd Blood) - *****
2) B. Hart/Austin (WM13) - ****3/4
3) HBK/Taker (Ground Zero) - ****1/4
4) Taker/Hart - HBK as special ref (Summerslam) - ****1/4
5) HBK/B. Hart (Survivor Series) - ****
6) O. Hart/Austin (Summerslam) - ****
7) HBK/Austin - KOTR - ****
8) Mankind/HHH - Steel Cage (Summerslam) - ***1/2
9) Davey Boy Smith/O. Hart (3/3 RAW) - ***1/2
10) Davey Boy Smith & O. Hart/HBK & Austin (25/5 RAW) - ***1/4

Note: Taker = GOAT, baby!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I didn't like Punk/Ryback at all. Piss poor match if you ask me. Ryback completely no selling that leg worked ruined the entire match for me. And yes that's all it takes to ruin an entire match for me lol.

I had it at one snow flake but for the awesome ending it gets two snowflakes.

In Cena's defense, the wave at the start was awesome, no? Come on! I couldn't be the only one who liked that?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

THE ROCK was awesome as usual last night.


And thank god Cena beat Ziggler clean and kicked out of his finishers. That bland fuck will hopefully go down the card now.
