Royal Rumble 2008 Match
This was awesome and coincidentally, I watched it 5 years after it took place. Starts off great with Undertaker and Shawn Michaels carrying on where they left off the previous year and they remain in the match for over 30 minutes as the ring fills up with more entrants. Unlike some other Rumbles, the middle section of this where jobbers and midcarders enter was not dull at all. Piper and Snuka being surprise entrants - as well as Foley - was great but please, for the love of God, don't ever take off your shirt to expose that fat belly, Roddy! Save for the Hornswoggle/Finlay DQ bullshit, I struggle to find any real faults with this. Also a great ending with Cena, Batista & HHH taunting each other as the final three then HHH and Cena have a very good finishing sequence to round it out as Cena FUs HHH over the top rope for the victory. The finishing sequence does not match HBK/Taker from the year before but it lasted a long amount of time and was entertaining. Would have been even better had I not known the result beforehand. And the crowd is also hot all night long. Not my favorite Rumble or anything but an awesome one nonetheless. ★★★★

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a mark for the 08 Rumble. Everything from #29 on is GOAT. Game. Cena. MSG. Epic.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a mark for 2008 PPV's overall - as a matter of fact, I'll resume my thoughts on them like someone already did with 2011:

Royal Rumble - Poor 1st two matches but it picks up with Edge/Rey and Orton/Jeff delievering. And the RR Match itself was quite good as well. MSG crowds always bring something to the show.

No Way Out - Decent undercard, shockingly good SD Chamber, very good Orton/Cena match, amazing Raw Chamber. Solid overall, nothing much else. Oh, and the Floyd/Show segment kicked ass.

WrestleMania 24 - What can I say? Finlay/JBL, MITB, Flair/HBK, Edge/Taker, Floyd/Show, Cena/HHH/Orton... one of the GOAT WM's IMO.

Backlash - The three Main Events (HBK/Batista, Taker/Edge, Fatal 4 Way) all were very good, and the rest of the undercard was solid as well. Show/Khali might be the most shockingly not bad match ever.

Judgment Day - Awful opener aside, another PPV with good Main Events and solid undercard. Edge/Taker and HBK/Jericho were terrific. And the HHH/Orton Cage Match is pretty decent too.

One Night Stand - As the 1st TV-14 PPV, it was pretty good. Cena/JBL was awful again, but with Jeff/Umaga, HBK/Batista, Beth/Melina, Singapore Cane Match and the Taker/Edge TLC rounding it off, I forgot that match even happened.

Night Of Champions - HHH/Cena was a great Main Event, Edge/Batista was very good too, and everything else ranged from solid to watchable. Much, much better than Vengeance 07 IMO.

The Great American Bash - This time its midcard wasn't that great but it still had another amazing HBK/Jericho match. Plus a bunch of underrated contests in HHH/Edge, Punk/Batista, Matt/Shelton and that sick Parking Lot Brawl.

SummerSlam - Meh undercard, though Jeff/MVP and Punk/JBL were OK. The double Main Event (Cena/Batista and Taker/Edge) turn it into great levels.

Unforgiven - The Raw Scramble was overwhelmigly dissapointing, but the other two Scrambles ruled. Throw in two average title matches and another great HBK/Jericho match and you got another fun show here.

No Mercy - Batista/JBL, for a squash, wasn't terrible. Beth/Candice, for a supposed terrible match, wasn't it either. The supposed average midcard matches were solid. Taker/Show was a great superheavyweight brawl. And the two title matches are fucking amazing. One of the greatest B-level PPV's ever IMO.

Cyber Sunday - Already reviewed it, fun show with Taker/Show and HHH/Jeff stealing the scene. Props to Matt/Bourne and Jericho/Batista as well. Nothing terrible here.

Survivor Series - This is the dark horse, the bad repped, the ugly duckling of the group. To be fair, 1991 and 2006 were FAR, FAR worse. Cena/Jericho and Team Orton/Team Batista save this one.

Armageddon - One of the better shows of the year tops it off. Again, nothing terrible here - and with Punk/Rey, Cena/Jericho and Edge/Jeff/HHH pushing it around, it's pretty great.


That's how much 08 ruled for me



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cena wins the Rumble. Wow, if we really are getting the worst 'Mania card possible with the big six, that being HHH/Lesnar, Punk/Undertaker and fucking Rock/Cena II, then there is no chance I'm watching that show.

Wasted. Potential.






best.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

ROCK-CENA II ... YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!

In all seriousness though ; Punk comes out and bitches about how he never lost, triple threat ensues with Cena taking the title. Brock-Taker happens, and KINGOFKINGS has an accurate Wrestlemania card prediction





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. 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

Rock/Cena/Punk and Undertaker/Lesnar would be perfect. Doubt it very much though.

And like that, Punk's reign ends at 434 days. It was great while it lasted. It's going to be strange not hearing "The WWE Champion, CM Punk."






best.
