Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I didn't like Rock/Punk at all and actually thought Punk looked pretty worthless. He had some cool little things to add, but his work-over was dull as crap and it looked like the first time he really cared in the match was when it restarted. I don't want to say he was mailing it in, but fuck me it was boring to watch. Not a good match.

Goldust was the highlight of the show for the simple fact I can get new hopes they give him a ten minute TV match every week.

3 Rock fans that were seated in the theater beside a couple Punk fans pulled out their iphones and started playing his theme music.

It wasn't even in sync but so fucking hilarious.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

At first glance , despite all of the booking that I highly disagree with ; the show still wasn't that great... AT ALL. We still don't have a **** WWE match this year and I'm not expecting that to change until TAKER-PUNK/BORK.

Some early STARZ that I'll need to evaluate on a rewatch ;

Del Rio-Show LMS : ** 3/4
HELL NO-Rhodes Scholars : **
Royal Rumble : ** 1/2
Punk-Rock : ** 3/4-*** (Haven't really made up my mind yet)

Yeah so.... Not a good show at all.

I meant **1/4 for Rock/Punk. Punk with his GOAT selling by jumping and flipping on that bad knee.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Rock's match I give ****. Awesome from the get-go. You could feel the hate and intensity from these two men and the two went at each other with everything they've built up in the feud. I loved the psychology and selling in Punk attacking the ribs and trying to cause internal bleeding on The Rock's part, and The Rock attacking Punk's leg after Punk "re-injured" it. The selling from both men was excellent and it made the match all the better.

The crowd, my god, I can't believe Punk actually split the crowd with Rock for 95% of the match. Wasn't expecting that, and it shows just how over CM Punk is that he could do that with The Rock on the opposite side of the ring in Phoenix of all places. Made the match all the better and really feel like an all-time big main event match that neither man was booed besides Punk during his entrance.

So I'm enjoying this match, and as I was thinking throughout and the past 6 months, nothing could ruin the result for me. Nothing could ruin the match. But boy oh boy, WWE loves to prove me wrong, doesn't it? It was extremely simple on how to end this. Either have Lesnar cost Rock the match, not in that darkness bullshit, but in plain sight after a ref bump, or have Rock pin Punk clean in the middle of the ring. There was no need for this controversial shit they did. First off it makes Rock look weak that even a minute after he was attacked, he still couldn't kick out at 3, and Punk gets beaten fairly easily and has his reign ended in unspectacular fashion with ONE people's elbow, and a Rock Bottom earlier granted, but still kinda silly for a man who's taken two AA's and two pedigrees and still kicked out. They could've at least had Punk kick out of the People's Elbow and then after a few reversals fall prey to the Rock Bottom to lose the title, but instead they go for the weakest shit they could think of.

So all in all, I really can't believe this. A match I thought would be bull-shit proof and have either a clean finish, or build to a mega Wrestlemania main event, ended up being full of bull-shit at the end. Both men look weaker after the match, the match is tainted in unneeded controversy, and we now have to look forward to Rock/Cena. The only solace in all this is if WWE use this to give Punk a reason to be in the Wrestlemania main event, but they still could've done that even if Punk lost clean as they could've had him use his rematch clause for Wrestlemania. That all being said and the bitching out of the way, I'm happy Rock ended the reign tonight instead of Cena ending it at Mania, and it's great to see Rock have the belt, period. Looking forward to his promo tomorrow night on Raw and looking forward to seeing what they do to build up EC with him.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd honestly be fine with this card:

The Rock (C) vs. CM Punk vs. John Cena
Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker

Those two matches alone would get me super hyped for Mania. It's amazing how much adding Punk to the Rock/Cena match raises my interest level so much.

**1/2 for Rock/Punk. Was incredibly disappointed and because it needs to be said to the ignorant masses on this forum, it has nothing to do with the winner.
