WWE Money In The Bank 2012 - No Disqualification Match for the WWE Championship w/ AJ as Special Guest Referee: CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan
In terms of the actual fight, this was another great showing from Punk and Bryan, who prove that they cannot have a bad match together. While not quite as technical as the OTL match they showed they can get hardcore if needed they managed to fit in all of their usual great stuff while embellishing on it all with the No DQ stip by introducing different weapons and gimmicks perfectly into the mix. But i could help but feel the story involving AJ kinda overshadowed the quality of the match. ***1/2 - ***3/4

WWE SummerSlam 2012 - Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
For me this is a match either you love it or really hate it and for i'm part of that small group that love it The storytelling is fantastic and the psychology is off the charts. The arm work by Brock, and Triple H's selling of it was top notch. The key locks, slam on the mat and even the first one on the table and the arm stomps all make this match so much better. Then you had Brock's selling of the stomach which was LEGIT the greatest thing in some time I remember watching it for the first time and I swear to god I thought he was legit hurt plus seeing a man his size sell like he's gonna die is just great. ****1/4 And I didn't even talk about how "BADASS" Brock looks when he takes off the gloves. http://i.imgbox.com/abgwWtjc.gif See for yourselves

Post-match, Brock stalks to the back and Trips is left lying as the music dies down. He and the WWE desperately were wanting the slow clap of respect from the fans. There's a small “Triple H” chant going but it dies rather quickly to be replaced by a louder “You Tapped Out” chant. The Trips chants come back but they are also joined by some boos. He continues slowly milking it for all it's worth and the crowd more or less comes around as he starts to cry. Not the emotional ending they were hoping for.

I legit thought they botched that table spot and BROCK's stomach was completely fucked. GOAT selling.

If Brock WANTED to be the best in the world truly, I don't think anybody would really compare. Seriously, two fucking matches in the WWE since 2004 and I'd place one in my top 10 ever and one of them probably in my top 50 ever. BORK.

COOKIE PUSS.

Since we're talking about Punk-Bryan MITB 2012..

For those of you who have WWE Classics on Demand, MITB 2012 is the current PPV they are showing. I watched the Bryan/Punk match about a week ago, but unfortunately when I had it on I got sidetracked by something else and didn't really get to take the match in 100%. But since it's such a hot topic around here, I'm going to watch it later on at some point.

Just wanted to let those who have WWE Classics on Demand know that the match is available right now. Right now I'm watching the 3/16/97 House Show at MSG. Just a week before WM 13. Some fun stuff. I miss that time period.

I watched Punk/Bryan MITB for my list and well....it sucked. Well it didn't suck but it certainly isn't anything special and nowhere near their OTL match.

More people should love Brock/HHH. That is all.

^Most controversial match of last year. I've never seen match ratings that ranged so much between the * end and the **** end, and it was either one or the other for most people. I was a fan of the match.

***1/2 for Punk/Bryan MITB - Still a good match between the two, and I have a slight tendancy toward gimmick/weapon matches so might be personal preference bringing the rating up. Not as good as OTL (which is #2 on my MOTY list_, but still a fun match to watch. AJ's involvement didn't bother me too much, as I liked the storyline and character, but the finish was pretty weak tbh, and the steel chair should have been that first weapon. But still, good, possibly great, match-up.

Punk-Bryan from MITB 12 was fucking AWESOME. Could have been so much more (like CAL said, the chair should have been the first weapon introduced and not the fucking kendo stick, takes away from the importance of the chair when it is introduced). Still AWESOME and would still throw four snowflakes at it for real. Probably the most flawed four star match from a structure standpoint ever in my books, but Punk and Bryan are such gold together.

The overexposure of AJ into the match just represents what I find to be the mis-use of Daniel Bryan in 2012. AJ gets main event storylines and spots despite getting over on the coattails of Daniel Bryan, while Bryan stays EXTREMELY entertaining in the tag division.

Watching Cyber Sunday 2007 now, continuing a string of 2007 PPVs that I picked up for Christmas. Finlay-Rey was a fantastic opener, loved that shit.... Both men owned. *** 1/4 from me for sure. Looking at reviews and comparing, everybody's throwing less than three snowflakes at it, FUCK THAT SHIT ! ..... What is up with me rating stretcher matches much higher than everybody else ?

Punk/Bryan MITB- ***
Lesnar/HHH SS- ***

Both matches I can sum up simply with this: Not bad, but nowhere near as good as they should've been.

Edit: On that Finlay/Rey CS match, was that the one where Finlay faked the injury, being wheeled out on a stretcher only to blindside Rey and massacure him for a bit?

Actually scratch that, that wouldn't have happened in a stretcher match. Must've been their previous match, which I think was No Mercy? But yeah, that owned. Crowd was all "FINLAY FINLAY FINLAY" giving him a standing ovation and all that, and then he jumps off the stretcher and beats down Rey and the place erupts in boos. Awesome.

I miss Finlay. Really, there's no one except him that has made me a mark of them based solely on in-ring work. And it was only his WWE in-ring work to. I'm sure he has tons more good stuff in the past.
