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...

Holy fuck Cal, off topic, but the guy in your sig...looks like his triceps are going to explode in that picture.

Also, I remember saying way back in December that we were getting Miz/Cena at WrestleMania. Punk was just there to keep Cena busy until then.

Ryback would be the ideal choice at Mania. All of the matches have ended in controversy, but in a Wrestlemania match with Punk, with the Shield having a war of a match with three other guys and Lesnar being pre-occupied with Rock, Punk would be alone to face Ryback, Ryback would end the title reign and be put over huge for it and maybe even the top face of the company, which would be further cemented in a big match with Cena at Summerslam or Wrestlemania 30.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Indeed, thanks for the advice Cal

Miz/Cena at WM 27 reference... oh God. Not the worst WM ME ever (Hogan/Yoko, Sid/Taker, Hogan/Sid and Bret/Yoko are far worse IMO), but good grief was it terrible. And their I Quit match at OTL wasn't any better either.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Undertaker is not working full-time again so thankfully, if Punk challenges the streak, the title wont be on the line. Because if it is, what's gonna happen? Taker wins and vacates it right after? Punk ends the streak? LOL. Pointless and not needed. Plus no one is gonna remember that. The Rock is exactly who Punk should lose the title to. He's already gone through everyone there is and Rock ending his reign of terror is the perfect payoff. And it also sparks some "memorability" to his shitty reign since its tail-end will be the start of Rock's feel good 10th title victory 10 and a half years since the last time he won it.

And don't give me that "put over a young guy" crap because Punk has beaten them all (unless you're looking for somebody from NXT or something - a face at that) and it will mean nothing. On par with my suggestion earlier, Ryback can get his return victory from Punk in a non-title match with Shield banned from interference. That can help him and then he can win the title after Mania. Perhaps from Cena at SummerSlam after Cena has a 5 month reign from WM29 until SS.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Here is my final PRE RUMBLE WRASSLEMANIA' CARD PREDICTION ;

WWE Championship

The Rock (c) vs John Cena vs CM Punk

The Streak

The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar (W/HHH as Special Referee)

World Heavyweight Championship

Alberto Del Rio (c) vs Dolph Ziggler

The Shield vs Ryback/Sheamus/Randy Orton

Daniel Bryan vs Kane

That's basically all I can predict at this point, since most undercard feuds don't materialize until post Elimination Chamber. Final predictions for anybody else ?

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

The card above seems pretty spot on and I'd personally be quite happy if that was the case. I can stomach Rock and Cena together again if Punk is involved that's for sure.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Del Rio vs. Ziggler? That's weak, and I'm a big Ziggler fan. Have him featured in a huge match that will put him over, but I don't think he should go for the title at Mania quite yet. Doesn't seem the right time.

Del Rio vs. Orton vs. Sheamus plz.
