Which is fucking crazy because the guy is like the 6th greatest draw ever or something (according to that list Meltzer put up a few years ago anyway). I had heard rumours that some guys (Verne and possibly Eddie Graham) had gotten together and bet to see if they could convince Vince Sr to make BOB champion because him as champ was laughable or something, and Billy somewhat confirms that Vince was talked into it by those guys and someone else (I forget who). Billy kept on about how it was a mistake and shit but Vince was too proud to change anything after the belt was put on Bob. Maybe, just maybe, Bob was actually fucking DRAWING MONEY so they kept it on him. FOR NEARLY SIX YEARS.
Great point. No way a company keeps the title on Backlund for over half a decade and he's not a sustainable draw as the WWF Champion. It just sounds like another bitter rant from Graham tbh. I sure he felt he should have held the title for longer than 9 months but WWF usually gave babyface champions extensive runs like that. WWF had always been about dominate babyface champions overcoming heel challengers. The NWA was in reverse with more babyface challengers chasing the heel champions like Race or Flair for extensive programs.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Backlund's induction reminds me of him vs. Hulk Hogan off Hogan's unreleased series, was very surprised at how good it was.
May watch some more Backlund as that was the first and only match i've seen of his.

Yeah Graham did sound pretty bitter about it in his WWE dvd, even changing his gimmick because Mcmahon Sr. didn't turn him face.

Night Of Champions 2012
12:06 Miz vs Mysterio vs Rhodes vs Cara - **1/2
8:30 Team Hell No vs Truth &Kofi - *3/4
6:40 Antonio Cesaro vs Zack Ryder - **1/4
18:24 Dolph Ziggler vs Randy Orton - ***3/4
6:38 Layla vs Eve - *1/2
14:25 Alberto Del Rio vs Sheamus - ***
26:55 CM Punk vs John Cena - ****

Overall: 8/10 - I was sure Ziggler/Orton would be MOTN but Punk/Cena exceeded my expectations and stole it away. Two amazing matches and an all around good card made this a great event to me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's a good show, but FUCK that opener. Fuck it to fucking HELL actually. Seriously,probably one of the worst openers in company history, and one of the worst matches in the career of Rey Mysterio. I legitimately feel bad for that guy nowadays between the physical pain and what I perceive to be mental anguish teaming with Sin Cara. A match that has Miz AND Sin Cara in it ? FUCK.

For the record though, I'd still put MIZ over Sin Cara

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

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Uh, I thought that opener was fine. If anything, the back and forth exchanges between Mysterio & Sin Cara was the most enjoyable part of the match to me. I think Sin Cara has improved but unfortunately I don't remember the last time I even saw him on TV. Maybe he's been injured and I forgot about it.

I think WWE just paired him up with Rey with their fingers crossed, hoping that alone would make him a star. That's pretty lazy though and they should've focused a little more on the actual material itself. Oh well, future endeavored!

As for The Miz, he's total shit. They really have him using Flair's signature move now? He botched it completely on Raw and it made me cringe. I'm not sure what people see in him. I mean... I want him to do well, but his mic and ring skills do absolutely nothing for me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If literally EVERY WRESTLER IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE didn't use the figure four at some point, I might actually care about the whole MIZ-FLAIR connection. I don't care if Flair is paired with fucking RYBACK, if the GOAT is on my TV screen I'm going to fucking watch.

GOATS GONNA GOAT

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Figure-four is a move passed around a lot but some people do their own thing with it or just flat out have no clue how to apply it. Shawn Michaels didn't even learn how to pull it off right until 2009 or something. Pretty sure he even puts it on Flair in their Mania match and gets it completely fucked up. FFS I knew how to put it on properly within 6 months of watching wrestling.

Did they pair Ric with the Miz? Really?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

For one night, yeah. And apparently the figure four has stuck too.

So, rewatched Money in the Bank 2010 for the millionth time or whatever. It's still great. WWE 2010 guys. It's a FORCE. Well, I dig the hell out of it. More Superstars time? I think so. Next edition has a Chavo Guerrero Jr vs MVP main event and it STILL blows away what's on tap for this week's edition of Superstars in 2013. (if you don't know it looks AWFUL)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Since I have Best of Raw/SD 11 and Best of PPV 11 I think I might try my hand at a 2011 project of sorts. Rey/Cena though.
