Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
If I'm making my picks for best control segment in a match, as well as the best selling job in a match, I'm going with Lesnar on both accounts. The Extreme Rules control segment was so unique by today's standards as Brock made us actually invest in his BEAST of a character, maybe because of the reason that we know in real life he could murder everybody in the locker room. We KNOW things about him that we don't know about every other performer, and that makes it easier for me to invest personally. The subtle things he did in the match with his body language was just amazing and honestly I don't think we'll ever see something like that ever again. Taker-Brock could make that magic happen, trust me.
Brock's selling in the HHH Summerslam match is something that the guys in the back should be taking notes of. AGAIN, we know that Brock has had stomach issues, and maybe a ton of this goes to Trips who probably planned this out in the back, but what a fucking smart strategy. Brock sells that shit like a champ, the way he looks at Heyman and begins spitting up shit was insane, the moment he yelled out "my stomach" I KNEW some shit just went down. How the hell can anybody hate on that match when it features some of the best selling I've seen in the E' ?
Still say that Brock's heel control segment is the GOAT. Seriously. I love the Backlash match and I have it at *** 1/4 , but it doesn't fucking come close to BREATHING the same air as the Extreme Rules match, which is currently my #10 WWE match of all time. The HHH match would be around 50ish I do believe.

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
