Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Agreed, it is a pretty under utilised angle, though I guess on PPV WWE is pre-conditioned to wanting to run fairly lengthy matches less risk turning viewers away by not delivering on a match. I still think its a beautiful way to build heat in the feud and make viewers realise not every feud/match will play out like the last and in the Hardy/Edge case, one bad bump by Hardy leading to Edge relentlessly abusing him until the referee deemed it dangerous to continue was a shrewd tactic.
Will be unlikely to get anything like that again for a while, only way they could do it with their current direction would be an injury angle, though its not quite got the lasting impact of a bloody beatdown of a crowd hero.
