Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't know about anybody else but after a first live viewing, I absolutely ADORED that Rumble match. Wow. I haven't that much pure fun watching a WWE match in forever. Jericho at number 2? HES STILL GOT IT BABAY! That was great and what a freaking pop. Crowd loved him and he was a legit surprise. Fantastic way to kick things off. Goldust. I marked. Godfather. I marked. Cool little moments throughout combined with the star power. I really enjoyed myself watching this thing and I'm not even mad that Cena won. I knew he would win, what's there to be mad about? Rock/Punk was pure fuckery. That ending? Jesus. The actual match was....I'm not quite sure yet. I think I need to watch it again. I don't think it was fantastic but I don't think it sucked either. I need to watch it again before I come to a conclusion. I liked the rib work from Punk and then the leg work from Rock but neither was consistent enough for it to really stand out on either side. Rock winning the title after all this time gave me my moneys worth. That's what I bought this PPV for and as a paying customer, I'm happy. Yeah, Rock/Cena II is obviously on the horizon but I've accepted it and I'm fine with it. It's not what I want but it's happening so I may as well get used to it. Hey, maybe that heel turn will finally happen...

Rumble match - ****1/2
Rock/Punk - Something around ***1/2 to ***3/4


As for Mania, I'm predicting Rock/Cena II for the WWE Title and Brock/Taker for the streak. I'm with KOK in that I'm starting to think HHH won't physically wrestle but be involved with a match, possibly something to do with The Shield. I'm thinking they're going to attack Vince on Raw tonight sparking something between them. Maybe Team HHH/WWE vs The Shield at Mania or something along those lines. No clue where that leaves Punk. I reckon Seamus and Orton will have a non title match, Kane vs. Bryan, Ryback vs. Show or Punk maybe, Jericho vs. Ziggler with a Ziggler WHC cash in at Mania itself. That's where I'm at regarding Mania atm. Now that it's all finally happening though, I'm just going to let it all play out and see what happens before throwing a fit over anything. Raw later on tonight, let the fuckery begin again.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Cena defeats Punk at the Chicago PPV in June as well. This is Cena's year, baby.


Fuck this company.

Whole lot of blah. Rumble has it's moments. JERICHO & GOLUDST. A few more fun bits. Not even upset about Cena either. Of course I called it miles away. I'm sure some others did too. Main event severely lacked a buzz. Rock was gassed early on again and he was loudly calling spots during the entire bout. Didn't help with the poor booking in the finish too. Very flat way to win. If Rock had to win, couldn't there have been some drama? Eh. Whatever. Went 4 for 4 on these predictions (for the main show) and wasn't shocked by any of them. I think that says it all.
Best post ITT right here although I disagree on Del Rio/Show. The Rumble match was horried and Punk/Rock was one of the worst matches in recent history.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I was actually very much enjoying the Rumble match itself. Ziggler and Jericho had great performances. Goldust was a fun trip down memory lane. Seeing he and Cody go at it was fun. But the entire match came crumbling down as soon Cena came in. The match was entirely about him once he entered. It was terrible. Jericho's performance after not wrestling in months was impressive and something Cena can only dream about pulling off even without a long layoff. Truth.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Normally I re-watch the rumble the next day (which would be today) and review it. Think this time I'm gonna wait a little while before re-watching . End to the show really left a BAD taste in my mouth. Might not have been so bad if Punk didn't look like a fucking chump and if his reign went out with a bang instead of a whimper.

Agree. They really didn't do Punk any favors with having him lose with a freaking elbow. Listen, we all knew he was going to lose, and that's fine. But can they at least bother to have his opponent do his finishing move (Rockbottom)? Geez. Whether you hate the guy or love the guy, you have to respect the fact that he busted his ass for over 400 days and did his very best to prove that he deserved the title for so long. When it comes time for him to lose, is it really asking much to have him lose to his opponents finisher? I mean, at least have him do it once. Nowadays, in these main events, you have guys kicking out of finishing moves multiple times per match. Don't see the logic in not having the long time champion dropping the belt without at least one finisher being done.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

During the Punk/Rock match I was enjoying it. It felt like it was building up gradually and move towards some great near-falls, counters and shocks at the end. But the lights going out and the restart killed it. I was begging Lesnar to come out as Vince was stripping Punk of the title and saying it was him that had attacked Rock. Oh well.

And I'll say it before and I'll say it again - Rock wins with the People's Elbow? He ends a 434 day title reign with the People's Elbow?! Just no.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't actually mind that he lost to the People's Elbow. Rock's beaten like, everyone with that back in the day. It WAS his main finisher for the most part. Its a fucking shitty terrible looking finisher and probably one of the worst along with the worm and the cobra though. But I definitely think Punk should have taken some more punishment first. If there was ever a time for a FINISHER FEST then this match was it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Fuck, I'm so happy right now. Never felt this great since The Rock beat Cena at WM28. The reign of terror is over, The Rock is WWE Champion ten years after his last year being full-time and Punk seemingly finding the way out of the main event door at last. I feel so good that I'm in the mood of refocusing with everything concerning my life including school work. It might sound exaggerated but really, I woke up in a good mood and I hope this carries on until summer when I graduate.

Nail on the head right there.
