Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk's reign has been ended by a guy who can barely work for more than 30 seconds. We'll now be getting John Cena winning the title at Wrestlemania and holding it for the rest of 2013, guaranteed. If this isn't a strong sign for me to get out now, I don't know what is.

I think if the Rock Bottom through the table wasn't botched it wouldn't have seemed as silly because that would've been a more memorable bit of damage for Punk to have taken.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I cant believe their was only one finisher lol, no GTS or anything, then one elbow and its goodnight, i mean Punk has been champ for over a year, dodged multiple bullets along the way, Rock comes along, faffs about for a bit in, what sounds like, a mediocre match, and that's it.

Fuck knows why, but i expected the match to be great (or really good at least), man they did fuck it up didnt they...

Yeah, when Cole started all stuttering and said "that's..that's..!" I was just begging for him to say Brock Lesnar. Or the lights to come on with him standing over Rock.

The feud isn't over. Not a single GTS and the only Rock Bottom was at ringside (to make up for that STUPID botching table). So either Punk'll get a rematch at EC or he'll be in the Mania match. Please be the latter.

Hell No/Rhodes Scholars - **
Rumble - *** 1/2 (you can't really rate them but w/e)
Rock/Punk I - ***
Rock/Punk II - *****

I wanted to cry at the final 3 in the Rumble btw. If it was the other 3 of the final six (Orton/Jericho/Ziggler) I would've been rather happy.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Posted this elsewhere so may as well put it here:

I ordered the event and was pretty excited at the onset.

Del Rio/Show - Solid opener with some interesting spots to get the crowd fired up. Show continues to impress with me his athleticism. Table bump from the stage setup was nice, but I felt the finish was a little weak, especially considering the way Del Rio won the title. **1/2

Tag titles - Typical weekly tag match. Bryan is super over, as usual. Can't wait for this tag thing w/Kane to expire so he can move onto other (and hopefully better) things. **

Rumble - I thought this was pretty exciting. I think everyone knew the winner before it started, though, which kind of hurt. Jericho's return was a pleasant surprise and got the crowd involved early. Liked them revisiting the Ziggler/Jericho feud. Thought they missed the opportunity of having Ziggler break Rey's record. Rey doesn't need that record anymore. Ziggler should've broken the record if he wasn't going to win the match imo. Maybe there was a time constraint, since they already had to cut the divas match (not complaining). I watched the Rumble at my parent's house, and they watch with me when I'm over there (typically bigger shows such as Mania/RR/etc) and have done so since I've been watching (20+ years). My dad watched when he was a kid. When I forecasted that Cena was going to win the Rumble, my MOTHER said "if he does, I'm never ordering one of these again. He wins every time we watch these." My mother's a saint. ***1/2

Punk/Rock - A little shaky at the beginning, but I felt it was shaping into a pretty solid match. Table break sucked, but what can you do? Rock improvised with a Rock Bottom to the floor on the outside. Swerve ending was well-done, but I was pretty shocked when Punk was finished by a single Elbow. After all of the finisher fests we've witnessed in much, MUCH lower profile matches (see Cena/Ziggler x2 on Raw), I was pretty amazed that a 400+ day title reign seemed to end so abruptly. ***1/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Del Rio/Show - *** Match of the night

Tag Titles - ** Was expecting better if I'm honest with you.

Rumble match - *** Some good surprises, shit final four.

Punk/Rock - ** Really wasn't good. Don't know what I was expecting though to be fair.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched Punk/Rock again. I have no problem with the finish and I don't think Punk looked weak at all. The simple fact is, he has been a weak champion ever since he turned heel. He hasn't been able to win a match without outside interference. What difference does it make in the end? The whole exchange of the anaconda vice into an attempted Rock Bottom into that crucifix pin reversal into the sharpshooter was pretty darn cool. I liked that. Holy Vince Pop when he comes out to restart the match. Yeah, I think this was good. Nothing mind blowing but certainly not shit either. Atmosphere was great for the most part too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Jericho got the biggest pop of the night.

J.R:"Everybody claims to be an icon and claims to be something special,and maybe they were in their day
None will Ever surpass the Undertaker in my view"
Kurt Angle:"He is our leader, and I consider Undertaker the best ever"
Shawn Michaels:"Wrestling against Undertaker was the best professional experience of my life."
Triple H:"He is The Greatest Legend in the history of this business"
Michael Cole:"The biggest Smackdown and WWE superstar of all time,the legendary Undertaker".
Mark Henry:"it's hard not to put The Undertaker in the same breath as Hogan and Rock because not only has he served more years as them, but collectively, I'm sure he's sold out and made more money than all of them."
