Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have MONEY down on Punk winning tonight. I just got that feeling that he's leaving with the belt. Not sure how, could be Brock, could be BRAD MADDOX, could be... fuck knows, Brock really is the best choice lol. But I just don't think Rock is leaving the RR with the title.

If Punk escapes with the title, I hope his bus crashes into the sea midway or he gets struck by lightning.

Okay, not really, but dammit, ROCK BETTER WIN THIS MUTHAFUCKA!

The whole build-up calls for The Rock to win and it makes sense that way. Regardless of smarks' fantasy booking where the heel always gets the upper-hand on every turn and match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not the appropriate thread but since it's being discussed, I never liked that TNA triple threat that the Old Meltzer graced with his prestigious 5 star rating.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think there's gonna be SOME CURVEBALL thrown at us tonight. I don't know WHAT, but WWE usually isn't THAT predictable when it comes to Wrestlemania season. Spent some time looking at pre-rumble Wrestlemania card predictions from years past ; and it isn't even close

EVERYBODY had money on these matchups the past few years ;

Wrestlemania XXVII : Cena vs Barrett/Punk
Wrestlemania XXVI : Triple H vs Shawn Michaels
Wrestlemania XXV : Cena vs Orton
Wrestlemania XXIV : Batista vs Orton

Seriously, went through about 634743724 different forums and threads and everybody predicted these matchups. Last year was INSANELY obvious since Cena-Rock was announced a year in advance.

A question I've been wondering for a while ; HAVE THEY EVEN HINTED AT ROCK-CENA II ? Why does everybody think the match is so obviously going to happen ? Is it just because that match is everybody's worst nightmare, or is there any indication that it will happen ?

Cena has made some comments directed at Rock on twitter (nothing more than small jokes, though) and I think there was one point where he said he would love to wrestle him again and win this time around.

And speaking of predictability, last year was that to a T. People expected HHH/Taker III the night after WM27 and that's what we got. Everyone talked about Jericho/Punk for the title for several months and despite Jeritroll and his shady tweets, that's what happened as well. Hope this year ends up becoming predictable too. Although I want Taker/Brock and not the stupid Punk/Taker and HHH/Brock II matches that have been rumored all year long.

Hope we just get Rock/Cena, Brock/Taker, Sheamus/Orton and Punk/Ryback. Trips can stay this one out or have a match with somebody below his status to rack up his WM record if he wants DAT CREDIBILITY back in full.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

On triple threats, Benoit/HBK/HHH is the GOAT Triple Threat, but Taker/Rock/Angle Vengeance 02 is actually very close to the point there's an argument for it being the best.

And since it reminds me, while I'm not sure about HHH being the king of LMS, triple threats I'd say he generally provides the most quality, as KingofKing's list show. And on HHH's best opponents, I'd say Rock and Foley are easily the top 2, with Jeff Hardy and Benoit coming in after that. After that I'm not sure.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the only reason I slightly want Punk to retain the title over Rock winning it is the volcanic eruption from this forum when the "GOD" of wrestling loses to some "indy midget no-drawing hack". Oh it'd be priceless. Of course, Rock's winning, and that's cool, but it'll be a lot more entertaining on here if he doesn't.

Top 10 Cena matches:

(****1/2)
1) vs. Punk MITB 11
2) vs. Umaga RR 07
3) vs. HBK Raw 07
(****1/4)
4) vs. Edge BL 09
5) vs. Edge vs. HBK vs. Orton BL 07
6) vs. Punk SS 11
7) vs. JBL JD 05
8) vs. Lesnar ER 12
(****)
9) vs. HBK WM23
10) w/HBK vs. Taker/Batista

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Those matches were REALLY obvious since we were getting Rock-Cena. They pretty much threw in the towel on anything being out of the ordinary when they announced that match. This year I feel is different than that due to a ton of the things Rock has said and that Punk has said through media. It's not that I don't WANT Rock-Cena and that I'm in denial, I just really don't feel that we're gonna get it

Punk is either going to main event or take on The Streak, that is pretty much the only lock I have at the moment. Don't really see how anybody can come out and dispute that at this point either. Even if Rock wins tonight, I still don't think he walks into Mania with the belt TBH.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Every long heel run always leads to the big face victory. Heels are made to lose to faces , that's wrestling. If not Rock then who? Ryback after 3 failed attempts?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You know, had they kept Punk face, and kept him looking strong, as a fighting champion, defeating Cena clean in a series of matches, and then defeating Rock at RR, a 500-day title reign vs. 20-0 streak probably could've been a huge selling point. It could've been bigger than Rock/Cena II and Lesnar/HHH II (not Rock/Lesnar though). Problem with it now is unless Punk goes over Rock clean, Punk's become your standard cowardly heel who really doesn't have a shot against Taker unless exploiting some kind of weakening in Taker like back in 2010, and even then he still won't look that good. Even then, a 500-day title reign vs. 20-0 streak build should have some good build, and it would keep me interested, even though it won't be the selling point it could've been and will have as much impact as a standard Taker streak match.

But still, as a mark for both, I'd love to see them duke it out at Mania. I've said it recently and I'll say it again, if Taker/Punk work the match similar to how they worked the SD 2010 match that was TV MOTY, it could end up being a classic.

I'm watching you...
