Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The match with Punk at OTL was surely better than the ER match, but that was already to be expected. Both guys deserve huge praise, but not my favourite Bryan performance. In the ER match, Sheamus worked a lot, credit where's due, but Bryan quite helped by making him look like a million bucks there.



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

MARKING FOR:
Daniel Bryan | Bad News Barrett | The Wyatt Family | Dean Ambrose | Damien Sandow | Sami Zayn | Austin Aries | Kota Ibushi | Kenny Omega | William Regal | Renee Young | YOSHIHIKO - The greatest dummy wrestler of all the times | Anything DDT tbh, especially the Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship matches

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Speaking of Miz & Bryan... thoughts on Miz vs Bryan vs Morrison from HIAC 2010?

I loved it when I first saw it, but I haven't seen it in about 2 years, so I might try and fit a rewatch in there sometime.

Fan since 2001

Vs Punk at Over The Limit. Both were great matches though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

vs Punk and vs Sheamus are probably his best two individual efforts, although his effort in the TLC 6-man match against the Shield was fucking brilliant.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bryan carrying Miz's ass to a very good, arguably near great match at NOC '10 is commendable too. Then there was the great match he had with Ziggler at Bragging Rights 2010. But I agree his matches with Sheamus and Punk were amazing performances as well.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd argue his performance in the Henry Steel Cage match should also be considered. Henry was equally brilliant if not better with how he towed the balance between unstoppable monster and showing signs of vulnerability in Bryan's grappling skills and the injured ankle, but Bryan bumped and sold everything to perfection and demonstrated how good he is as the fired up passionate babyface who got over how the match was the biggest and most important of his career to date. They timed all the Bryan nearfalls superbly and I loved how they played off of their first match when Henry countered the Lebell Lock, with Henry once again countering but Bryan being aware and immediately transitioning onto the injured ankle to thwart Henry.

The Batista match on Raw back in 2010 was also another good showcase for Bryan against a bigger opponent and he managed to work a 5 minute match very well in generating a couple of strong nearfalls and making himself look much better despite the near extended squash it was.

@ Clique: I wouldn't call it a carryjob per se. I firmly believe Bryan was a big reason the match turned out so well, but then again having a great worker in a match doesn't automatically make it a carryjob in the truest extent. Miz made the control segment very interesting and got over the limbwork as a smart bit of unexpected character work and when you consider how dull and lifeless a lot of control segments are in WWE atm, this stands out as one of the better ones in recent years. Bryan obviously sold as Bryan can and got over everything wonderfully, but Miz wasn't along for the ride in the NOC match and did an admidable job of not making the extended limbwork tedious and insufferable.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bryan is fantastic. He had a good to great match with Miz and Fat Henry. That's enough for me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Henry outperformed Bryan in their matches, and this is coming from a huge Bryan advocate in terms of worker ability. Henry was perfect as the monster who structured the match and got over himself as a threat whilst selling subtley enough to put over Bryan as a credible threat and make himself look human and beatable without sacrificing his aura or presence. Then there's the selling of the ankle in the Cage match which might be as good a bit of selling as saw in 2011. He truly made the injury look like a hinderance and the way they built that with him being more aggressive and less playful and toying with Bryan as well as Bryan using it as a transition spot was wonderful.

I totally agree with that just looking at the Taker/Batista series as an example. Thing is while Batista has proven he can work good matches without a Taker or HHH, I haven't seen the same from Miz since the Bryan match unless he was facing a Ziggler or a Cena. I think at least 90 percent of the credit for that NOC match being as good as it was was down to Bryan and I liked that you pointed out his selling which made Miz look even more impressive and allowed the control segment to be as engaging as it was during the match. I love the Nigel McGuinness clothesline spot they incorporated in that match. Gee, I wonder why Miz hasn't used that spot since then? :bryan
