If there was ever a time for a FINISHER FEST then this match was it.
Nail on the head right there.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What's with everybody hating on the People's Elbow? Austin, HHH, Taker, Foley, Hogan, Angle etc have all gone down to the elbow. It's his finishing move lol. Besides, the whole storyline was about Rock winning for the people. It was only fitting that he beat the man who supposedly turned his back on the people by hitting him with the People's Elbow, no? If it's the fact that it was just 1 finishing move then I get it. I thought Punk would at least kick out of 1 Rock Bottom and Rock out of 1 GTS. Neither of them even happened in the match though iirc. I'm going to watch the match again in about an hour or so. I'm curious to see how I find it this time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Can't wait for Rock's EPIC TITLE REIGN now. No doubt filled with terrible promos and he'll be lucky to have a single good match (then again what are the odds he wrestles more than 2; EC and WM?). WM is shaping up to be pretty shitty atm. Hope they pull a couple of SWERVES and give us something good.

It's not just losing to the people's elbow like you said, the problem was that was the only move that beat Punk. If Punk had kicked out of a Rock Bottom and another couple of big moves and then lost to the people's elbow, then that would have been fine. But Rock just hit it and that was it - a really poor way to end such a long reign.

Plus, during the promo on the recent Raw (or was it the week before?), Rock was talking about how he'd get Punk in the Rock Bottom and Punk would panic and end up losing the match. It would have made more sense to see some sort of payoff from that.

Yeah, that's fair enough because I thought that was a little odd myself, Punk not kicking out of anything or Rock for that matter. Strange since most BIG matches like that often have a lot of false finishes. The Shield thing is to blame for that though. I think they were just hitting that point in the match and then they came out and everything went to shit.

The Rock Bottom point is very true. I guess it is rather strange that there wasn't even a Rock Bottom in the match. Maybe Rock didn't want Punk to kick out of his movez durr

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well yeah, the fact that all Punk took was a people's elbow to lose the belt after over 400 days is kind of a weak way to end such a long reign. It was pretty surprising.

These next 2 months of Rock's title reign really don't mean much. It's good business, if nothing else. Having a big name champion will draw extra attention to WWE and especially WM. But make no mistake about it, The Rock's little 2 month title reign is pretty much meaningless. He's holding the belt for 8 weeks to serve it on a silver platter to the Golden Boy at WM.

Part of me can't wait to see Cena once again be the champion with the entire roster once again nipping at his heels. That is going to be one LONG ass brutal title reign. Get ready. I can't wait for the laughs.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The lights out part of the match could have been really cool...if it turns out it wasn't Shield and was Lesnar or something. But considering that I'm pretty sure we saw Reigns' tattoo, that's not happening.

Overall that match had far too much fuckery. And not the good kind. Still confused why they had Punk doing all those acrobatic moves while the announcers are putting emphasis on his injury. Confused me a bit. No blame with anyone on the table spot...it just happened.

Found the Rumble fun but felt really deflated once Zig went out. Disappointed there was no Henry or Christian though.

Going into Mania I'm not really sure what's going to happen now but Rock/Cena II doesn't interest me one bit. I'm praying to god Punk gets a prominent role in the show but I wouldn't bet on it at the moment. Jericho being back is awesome, hopefully we get Jericho/Ziggler. God knows for Daniel Bryan, he'll probably be filler somewhere. What pisses me off about these top heavy WMs with all the big guys at the top is the way they treat the entire undercard like filler when they could be promising matches. I'm well aware that the average fan is paying to see Rock/Taker/etc but it's also the perfect place to give up and coming guys a chance to move up a notch. Because eventually WWE won't be able to call up Rock or Taker.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I would expect Bryan to face Kane at Mania after Hell No drop the titles at EC. Seems like they're pretty close to breaking up after the Rumble, which is strange because they were selling how Shelby "fixed" them earlier in the night.

Punk/Taker, HHH/Lesnar, Cena/Rock, Orton/Sheamus, Bryan/Kane, Ziggler/Jericho is a pretty sweet Mania card, if only they weren't all rematches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bryan/Kane would interest me at any other PPV but Mania. I see that match getting like 5 minutes.
