Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

CM Punk never lost.

but didn't bother with a mention as it's plenty known & didn't involve Danielson.

Thoughts

This FUCKING PPV. I spent a good 20 minutes before I watched this looking at reviews for this PPV and I saw nothing but shit. I was petrified at what I was going to have to witness, wondering why I spent my money on such a lackluster PPV. I was prepared for the worst, but when I saw the opener of Punk vs Burke I was pleasantly surprised at how good it actually was. Psychology was great, Punk was sharp, Burke was stiff as fuck.. Just a damn good match. However, my optimism quickly took a 180 when the next match I saw featured the likes of DEUCE N' DOMINO, the worst fucking tag team ever. Surprisingly Matt and MVP got absolutely nothing out of them, and it just sucked balls and failed as a tag match with only a good moment or two.

I saw a Triple H match that I actually didn't like, bar the last minute or so where Trips completely BURIES Carlito in one of the more hilarious and satisfying burials Trips has had in his long storied career or burying. Fuck Carlito, he deserves it for giving Trips such a bad match. Still, as a Trips fan I saw a ton of positives in the match the second time I wathed it due to Carlito essentially posing no threat whatsoever. Not a bad match, but definitely not a good one at all.

BETH was great in the Divas match, but that didn't stop it from sucking balls due to Candice having a complete inability to work any match whatsoever. Terrible, terrible match and was the THIRD match in a row that was sub TWO snowflakes.

Of course the trend of shitty matches continued with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Naturally this is good for KHALI standards, but it was still a horribly worked match that THANKFULLY stays short and THANKFULLY has a pretty damn awesome ending to send the fans and myself into a frenzy as Khali finally drops the belt he never should have gotten in the first place. The length of the match is LOLworthy and Batista-Mysterio would have been much better, but when you factor in that KHALI was in it, it's actually not that bad.

The tag match was above average, with some solid work throughout. It would probably be rated higher if I felt any kind of emotional attachment to Cade or Murdoch's characters like perhaps some do, but that's just not my slice of pie right there. TEAM ROH rocked in this though and made it a pretty damn good match. Would have been just a middle of the pack match on any decent PPV, but on this pile of shit it looks like gold.

John Cena vs Randy Orton... FUCK YOU. All I'm gonna say about this match before my head explodes from rage is this ; two minute long resthold in a seven minute match with a terrible ending.. All of you Cena/Orton Savants, take a look at this match right fucking now and you'll want to poke your damn eyes out. Only positive and the reason why it's not a dud is CRAZY CENA at the end. Warrants a half a star and a half a star it shall receive.

The main event had a legit feel good big time moment in Taker's return, and I actually liked the match quite a bit. Granted, it could have been due to the fact that the match is universally trashed, but for some reason I just like DOUBLE MARKS work together as a big man vs big man style. Henry can turn it on when he's in there with GOAT talent, and Taker brought his all as he knew the fans probably weren't gonna respond to this one. Great ending to the match as well, and while the pace was deliberately slow I thought it added to the structure of the match. Obviously not a GREAT match or even a GOOD match really... Just your average contest. Not main event worthy whatsoever though.

This PPV has a NEGATIVE score on the CAL SCALE, that should tell you how I feel about this one. Avoid at all costs, there is absolutely nothing on this PPV going out of your way to see unless you're a huge Taker fan and you wanna see his pretty epic looking return and subsequent match against Henry. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this could be the worst PPV I've ever seen in my entire life, and that's saying something. I know for a fact there hasn't been a worse show since it happened, that's for sure.

A low point in the company, creatively and definitely from a workrate standpoint.

Overall Score : - 0.5

What The Fuck.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Henry and Taker never got a PPV match to REALLY work. They had a pretty awesome match on SmackDown in 2006 that I posted a while back that nobody watched, and then a re-match that could have been as good had Khali not debuted his worthless ass for the finish. I really want to see their "WrestleMania Re-Match" casket match from TV whenever it was, because I would be less than surprised if it was a lot better than the actual Mania match (which should have had no gimmick and should just been a 7 foot man pretending to a zombie and a 400 lb fat sweaty black man pounding each other in the face, AKA their pretty awesome SmackDown 06 match).

They just couldn't seem to click when the spotlight was on them.

The light was too bright for a zombie and a man with dark skin, obviously.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread



and the video goes over 16 minutes too. Hopefully Deadman's entrance doesn't suck up too much of that time. If this rapes the Casket match like you say then DAMMIT at them not killing it at Mania.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What would you guys consider to be the most consistent ppv through the years in usefully delivering a good-great show? My pick would be Backlash/Extreme Rules. All the Extreme Rules ppv's that took place since it got the Backlash spot have been good. And before that Backlash used to be pretty consistent as well, 2009, 2008 (bit hit and miss), 2007, 2004, 2001 (I really liked it) and 2000 is def top 5 best WWE ppv ever.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Harder for me to claim with WWE than it is with TNA. WWE seems to be a tad bit more sporadic with which PPVs tend to be consistent. Unforgiven & No Mercy for the majority tend to have delivered. Only bad event from either franchise was Unforgiven 2007. Rest seemed to click upon my memory. No Mercy 2008 was GREAT.
