Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Love it when an individual has the BALLS enough to put a match that has happened in the past 3-4 years in any top 10. I'll probably do a top 200 WWF/WWE matches in my own opinion sometime during 2012, it's been a few months since I did I big LIST.

BALLS.





"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

~ TLC was a ton of fun. I bought into it. Perhaps more than some others. Perhaps less than some others. Punk was a bumping machine and speaking of machines, my word Ryback was filthy with his destruction during the match. Decimating Punker any and all chance he could find. All of those months of frustration seemed to culminate every chance Ryback got to slam Punk through a table or crush him on a ladder. Punk displayed flashes of brilliance too in a mist of being the one who was clobbered (Ben Grimm seems to fit Ryback a hair more considering aesthetic appearances. I digress) Punk's display of intelligence to maneuver his way around the brute rocked. Dodging the steel steps only to leap off of them to drive the high knee into Ryback's face + evading Ryback by rolling out of the ring to lure him into diving into a table. Awesome. I appreciated and more importantly enjoyed the psychology of the match. It was painfully obvious Punk would win, yet that didn't come into play once in the match. The drama was still there even with the Rock championship shot looming for the Rumble. Another Shield screw job on Ryback makes me ponder if Ryback will even win the Rumble match now. I could honestly see Ryback vs The Shield at WrestleMania. If not in a handicap then in another 6 man capacity. I had tons of fun with this match. It isn't a MOTYC, or at least not a HIGH one, but it's the current WWE MOTY atm. 10 days in, big whoop I know. It's gonna be mentioned for the rest of the year. No doubt. It had that memorable factor to it. Plenty of entertainment to go around. Thankfully the debut RAW gave us a match worth discussing. Hoping the trend continues tenfold throughout the rest of the year. If not one match on RAW per week, but a few. 3 hours a week. They can afford to give us 3-4 quality bouts.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Holy crap, I just watched Swagger vs Christian Backlash '09 and I really don't recall the match being that damn good. As a matter of fact, at the time I didn't think much of it. What the hell? How the hell could I have been bored with this match upon initial viewing? Seriously, what the hell was wrong with me?

This is an awesome match and is one of 2009's best. I prefer this over their ECW encounter as well. This match is just great story telling with Swagger working over Christian's ribs, Christian getting in some hope spots but Swagger right back on the offense. Honestly, the beauty of this match is in the finish. Because the match was all Swagger and no matter how many times Christian would get some offense in or sneak in a roll up Swagger would always get back on the offense, you really wouldn't expect Christian to win this at all. But he does, in one of the most unique finishes I have ever seen. Basically, Swagger keeps getting pissed off because no matter he couldn't get Christian down for the three count. An enraged Swagger removes the turnbuckle padding. While the ref is arguing with him, Christian is in the other corner removing a turnbuckle cover of his own!Still pissed off, Swagger dashes towards Christian, steel meets flesh, Swagger eats a Killswitch, 1..2..3! Freaking awesome match!

★★★★

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Tis instead an awesome match, but imo doesn't quite match up to their second ECW match. That one is just untouchable when it comes to anything else that happened in 09 aside from HBK/Undertaker .

Second ECW match? What was the date? Was that 2/24/09?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll probably have a watch of Backlash soon. Christian in 09 could do no wrong and although I can't see it displacing my love for the 2/24 encounter (MOTY for 2009), I'm expecting the usual chemistry of Swagger/Christian to shine again.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Backlash match was great but not as good as ECW 2/24. That was a clinic.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Having watched Cena/Lesnar again from the ER PPV DVD, before the match it obviously shows the build up and previous promos, i just love the moment when Lesnar kicks Cena's cap away, always makes me laugh, looks like a school bully lol, classic.

Personally, i love the build up to the match as well of course as the match, short but excellent little fued.

EDIT - Is that Christian/Swagger match on a DVD? Wouldnt mind seeing that...
