Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh yeah, that's the common theme.

Attitude Era aka 1998 & 1999 = great entertainment & quality TV.
Modern Era aka 2011 - 2012 = hit or miss entertainment, with blah TV and pretty darn good PPVs.

The switch off with their positives and negatives. Granted even some bad Attitude Era PPVs can be fun only b/c of the nostalgia factor + general entertainment from the characters that were about.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I honestly don't even find the TV shows in 98 and 99 that entertaining or good. Some stuff is. Russo gets a lot of credit for giving EVERYONE a storyline and whatnot, but fuck, most of them were terrible. So the midcard were always doing something, but it was usually wank .

The most I got out of it was that evil grin on Eddie's face after the loss in the end. Still a great match, I just don't look it the same way as you do.
That's surprising. Basic wrestling, really? Eddie pretty much spend everything past the big cheapshot dominating Rey like a scummy sack of ass. The first bits were pretty wrestling-ey, but that was all Eddie breaking clean to everyone's surprise, with Rey working over the giant bruise. All that until Guerrero eventually snaps, shoves Rey off the top rope to the outside and throws him into everything on the outside. Most of the rest of the match is Eddie on top of Rey + Rey's comeback. Rey's comeback was less Mysterio-sih than usual too, with multiple grounded punches of FURY and even a boot to the face.

I don't think the match is necessarily as violent as Judgment Day, but it definitely doesn't have more 'wrestling' (for lack of a better term) to it. It's absolutely FILLED with 'character'. Like, is as filled with that as almost any match I can remember.

World Heavyweight Championship - Last Man Standing
Big Show (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Smackdown 1/11/13

Kinda had high(ish) expectations after reading all the positive reviews on this, but ended up a little disappointed. Let me start by saying I love how they didn't bullshit around inside the ring for the first few minutes like you tend to see in every other LMS match. Totally dug how Show just went straight for a table and slammed him through with no problem. Del Rio's offense was pretty limited against the big guy but his psychology on the arm was good. Thought the armbar spot on the apron was creative, even though the crowd didn't seem to care. Del Rio's "standing up" after the KO punch was probably the best part of the match for me, thought that was really clever. I don't have a problem with the finish, though that was clever too but I don't feel like Del Rio really got all that much significant offense in, plus the match felt a little short. Crowd didn't help it much either, only popping for the finish. Good SD main event to nothing to write home about imo.

Super Cena is trending on Twitter right now, apparently, haha.

Surprised Ziggler lost two weeks in a row. But I guess I shouldn't be.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just gonna say it in here because I don't give a fuck what the rest of the goons outside of this thread have to say..

Rock was fucking PATHETIC tonight. Easily one of the worst segments I've ever seen by a main event star EVER. Call me a Punk mark yet again, but the segment only got awesome when he came out, didn't say a word, and attacked. None of that Cena no sell smiling bullshit.





"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
