Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2011 was such a great pay-per-view year in retrospect:

Royal Rumble has Edge/Ziggler which was a MOTYC candidate. Royal Rumble match was good too. Booker and Diesal returning was fantastic

Elimination Chamber had two of the best Elimination Chamber matches in history, and even the Miz/Lawler match was fun. Also, Trish and Christian returns

Extreme Rules was a fucking FANTASTIC show. Cena/Miz/Morrison Steel Cage, Orton/Punk LMS, Rhodes/Mysterio Falls Count Anywhere, and of course, Del Rio/Christian in a great ladder match. Also, Kharma debut! Underrated pay-per-view, and one of the best ever

Over The Limit, while overall was a pretty average show, featured a MOTYC in Orton/Christian which alone makes that pay-per-view worthwhile. 17 minutes of pure, FUCKING AWESOMENESS

Money In The Bank 2011 was of course one of the GOAT PPV's featuring the lead up of the greatest angles in wrestling history. Perfect pay-per-view top to bottom. Bryan winning that case in a fantastic MITB match, RAW MITB was pretty good too, Orton/Christian was solid, and of course, Cena/Punk was absolutely amazing.

SummerSlam 2011 featured a REALLY AWESOME opening tag match, Bryan/Barrett was EXCELLENT as was the Orton/Christian Street Fight, and Punk/Cena managed to conjure up a magnificent match up once again that featured a weak finish, but Del Rio walked out with the strap.

Night of Champions had a pretty good Del Rio/Cena match, and an awesome Triple H/Punk match. Mark Henry beating Orton after MONTHS of being booked as a monster heel was a great moment.

Survivor Series was in MSG. Nuff' said. No but seriously, I recall the Ziggler/Morrison match up being great, Team Barrett vs. Orton was solid with the right person going over, Rock/Cena was electrifying with the crowd going nuts, and Punk/Del Rio was a great match with a feel good moment for CM Punk regaining the title from Del Rio in MSG.

Overall, probably best PPV year in company history. In terms of match ups, we had GREAT ones that year.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Shame that we got such a bad MANIA that year . 2011 OWNED .

Bryan got Barrett's best match ever out of him at Summerslam 2011 as well. Ceases to amaze me how I forget about such an awesome match due to how good and memorable the rest of the card is. EVEN THOUGH WE HAD CEE LO GREEN INVOLVED

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

Survivor Series sucked too. Crowd ruled though. Rest I'll generally agree with you, Punter. Although I wouldn't dub Extreme Rules as one of the greatest ever. It was merely a really consistent card.

Elimination Chamber was pretty excellent though. King vs Miz, which ruled, and not one, but TWO amazing chamber matches. Wonderful. I <3 the event personally. The two undercard matches were fine for what they were too. Crowd ate up Del Rio/Kofi.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That EC was pretty fucking great. It's honestly my favourite EC by five thousand miles and everything a match like that should be. Didn't feel like anybody was really worthless in it and Rey and Drew KILLED IT. I don't like the chamber gimmick at all but have little problem calling that an excellent match.

The Raw one was w/e. I barely remember it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Elimination Chamber might be my favorite match type. Produces some standout individual performances (McIntyre 2011, Mysterio 2009).

Awesome. The Smackdown chamber that year was excellent too and featured a dope HHH/Taker finishing stretch.

what about when Ron Killings lasted one minute exactly? I can't forget that. It was bliss.

Smackdown 2009 chamber was solid. That's about it. I wasn't crazy about it. Taker jobbing to H in the end only soured my reaction on the match. Oh, man I was so pissed live, haha.
