Emotion usually is an added bonus in a huge match like this for me. It's one of those intangibles that separates it from other matches. The storytelling and brutality was immense work, though. I initially gave it the full five but that's on live watch from ringside. I'll have to re-watch on DVD.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Got my Royal Rumble volume 2 (1993-1997) set in the mail today. Only paid $29 for it (plus shipping) so it was a steal. Currently watching Bret Hart V Razor Ramon from Royal Rumble 1993. Love that match. A couple months ago I scored a poster from that PPV in mint condition off ebay for only $20. I'd love to get it signed by Bret someday. Something I always wondered about that Rumble is the ending. I love it until the ending. I was ok with Yoko winning (even as a 12 year old I thought he would) but WTF was with Mach going for the pin? Coke is a hell of a drug.

Some of those smarks are probably some of the same people who go to Raw and just sit there on their hands. Haters gonna hate.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So hard for me to put the last four Taker WM matches in order. If I had to I'd probably go...

WM XXVI
WM XXVIII
WM XXV
WM XXVII

But all at least ****1/4.

Yeah, definitely. Also, my thoughts of 'what do I rate that?' weren't negative thoughts. After I watched Taker/Michaels I, Taker/Michaels II, Taker/HHH I there was a concrete idea in my head of a general rating, however, I didn't get that with Taker/HHH II. It was more like "huh, I got no idea what to rate that but it was awesome". Cena/Punk from MITB gave me a similar feeling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Henry III was good but not on the same level as their first match. I want to re-watch it without the commercials before I slap a rating on it but I'm thinking *** or thereabouts (***1/2 for the one after Mania).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Trilogy

Punk vs. Henry 4/2 - ***1/2
Punk vs. Henry 4/9 - N/A I don't think it's worth a DUD, better off not worth a rating
Punk vs. Henry 4/16 - ***

Not in love with it as many are. Punk WOTY at the moment.

CM Punk 2012

4/1 vs. Jericho - ****
4/2 vs. Henry - ***1/2
1/2 vs. Ziggler - ***1/2
1/29 vs. Ziggler - ***1/4
2/19 Elimination Chamber - ***1/4

I'm really looking forward to the Chicago Street Fight. I'd imagine that would be featuring in the list too.

Just looked at it. Looks like a pretty decent set. Few underrated gems in there and ladder matches are always fun to watch. 7 hours for 7 quid. Get it.
