I read that while RAW/Smackdown have been hit-or-miss for a while, there's some match gems that can be appreciated. I'll try to watch Raw and Smackdown this week.

Edit: Punter, he could have gotten a chance if not for some alleged backstage BS.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Curious to get you guys' thoughts on Cena/Orton at HIAC 2009, and for that matter their series of matches in late 2009.

Well he sure seemed like he was going down that route. He was over with the fans too. Then poof. Over.

Spookshow, you're referring to 2011 & 2012 both? From 2012 Smackdown pumped out two of my personal favorites: Sheamus vs Tensai 8/3 & Cena vs Del Rio 11/30.

I'm in the minority and enjoyed it for what it was. Only one match I found to be truly great and another was good while the rest were entertaining to an extent, but nothing to write home about.

Summerslam ~ **

Breaking Point ~ ****1/4 (I still <3 it, but rating could fluctuate as I do need one more final watch of the entire event)

Hell in a Cell ~ **1/2

Bragging Rights ~ ***1/2

I've been out of the loop for a few months, probably since Sept/Oct. PPV wise even longer.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I stand by my recs. They're quality bouts. Tensai's proves to everyone what he's capable about. Plus, continues the trend of Sheamus being the WWE MVP for 2012. Majority of his matches on TV or PPV were well worth seeing.

Oh, and Christian vs Drew McIntyre from Superstars is a must. Made my top 10 from last year.

Re-watching Beyond The Mat documentary right now. Haven't watched this in years. JR "As long as there's an ass every 18 inches, I'm happy" and Droz, vomiting, and Vince explaining his puking character. lol


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I was a bit annoyed by the way they made Terry Funk look during it. Made his story feel like what he ended up with isn't worth it.

Sheamus is a workhorse, no doubt about it. He had a match with Tensai and with Barrett on Raw (different dates) that I liked. Both matches were brutal and stiff as fuck. Tensai had welts all over his body and Sheamus was bleeding. Barrett received a black eye. His has some good matches with Ziggler, though I can't tell you which ones out of their bajillion bouts. He gets crapped on way too much.

Christian became a top ten favourite when returned in 2009, though I missed alot of Smackdown and his feud with Orton I've been reading about. I'm not high on McIntyre, so I should check some of his matches out. Still a shitload of matches to watch!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh trust me, if you enjoyed the RAW match between Sheamus vs Tensai, then the Smackdown match will be right up your alley. It's longer and much more complete of a bout for what they got to give us on RAW. Sheamus has to be Wade's best opponent. Their styles mesh nicely. All of their matches were legitimately good. Kept rising up till their really good contest on Main Event. Sheamus vs Dolph happens a ton and each time it's a blast.

Give McIntyre another chance, tbhayley. He's great. Such a skilled worker. It baffles me how it push could have been taken away from him in a flash. Christian vs anyone is generally gold. Christian vs Drew? Forget about it. Stellar match series between the two.
