Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I hated the Sheild's interference last night. It made no sense. Going into the match, it was a stipulation that if the Shield interferes Punk would lose the title. So, what do they do? They turn out the lights and have the Shield powerbomb Rock through the table. I mean, really? Kayfabe wise, did they (Shield and Punk) really think they were fooling anybody? It just made them look extremely dumb. I know they are heels, but there is a difference between being a bastardized heel and a complete and utter idiot. Trying to sneak in a Shield interference by simply shutting out the lights and having them do the *same move they've been doing for weeks now(!)* was completely retarded. I mean really, gee, I wonder who could have powerbombed Rock through the table? It's not like we haven't seen that move being done recently.

It just made Punk look stupid to me. And he's not supposed to be a stupid heel. He's supposedly prided himself on being smarter than everyone else. And that just made him look like a mong.

Yeah, that was a pretty good match. Mike Knox was a pretty underrated worker. I remember him putting on solid matches with Rey Mysterio. No idea why they stopped his push.

It was in mid-2008 I believe, where he got sent to Raw and got a couple of vignettes for his debut as a Raw wrestler. He was suppose to get a major push by working a program with Rey Mysterio that would get him over but for whatever reason, they never really put that much effort into the Knox/Mysterio program and stopped his push by sending him to Smackdown where he would eventually become a regular on WWE Superstars.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

FINALLY... I'm finished with the whole PPV.

Royal Rumble 2013:

Alberto del Rio vs Big Show - ★★★
- Don't know which I prefer between this and their Smackdown match. They should have picked a different stipulation but hey, it worked both times so what the hell. The winner was obvious and it was another good match between the two. Both men did their job throughout the ring and on the ramp and there were some cool spots like Big Show going through the barricade, Del Rio being chokeslammed from the lighttube through a table but I wasn't very fond of the finish. We've already seen it before and it made Del Rio look bad as a newly turned face who has the fighting champion character to him. And Del Rio as a face is so much better even if you already know that! His offense is also cooler as he becomes sort of like a bigger Rey Mysterio.

Team Hell No vs Rhode Scholars - ★★
- Nothing more than your basic tag match and considering that all four appeared in the Rumble, this could very well be considered the piss-break of this event. Think Rhode Scholars should have won, though. After all the jobbing they've done on TV, it only made sense and also to further build-up the feud between Kane and Bryan.

Royal Rumble Match - ★★★
- Another great Rumble and although it doesn't beat the best from the past, I enjoyed it a lot. Already starts off great with Chris Jericho being a surprise return (his tattoos don't stand out nearly as much as I expected them) and from there they just go on. Most of the match until Cena's entrance is nothing special barring Goldust/Cody's fighting but after Cena enters, business picks up and match gets a lot better. The final six section of it is great but the eliminations were kind of anticlimactic. Orton just tossed over by a clothesline (and Ryback booed!), Sheamus misses a Brogue Kick and goes over the top then the worst of it comes with Ryback who Cena ducks and is tossed over. They should've used something more dramatic on the apron or at least an actual move, perhaps the FU, to finish it off but instead they went with this middle-of-the-match style elimination. Oh and Rey Mysterio is really in ugly shape now, no wonder they have him wear a singlet.

The Rock vs CM Punk - ★★★
- Now it's main event time and what I've been waiting for. Crowd is surprisingly split with some "cool" smarks cheering Punk but that only adds to the atmosphere. Unsurprisingly, Rock wrestling feels a lot more 'normal' than when he wrestled Cena as he's probably shaken some more of the ring rust and we actually see more wrestling than overuse of restholds. It also helps that they go slightly above 20 minutes rather than 30 minutes. But I still prefer the Cena match because that one had a more big time atmosphere and a clean finish. Would have had this on 4 stars but just when the match is reaching to its full potential, they pull off that nonsense with The Shield and as such, the last couple of minutes gets split from the 20 minutes where they went fully at it. Punk does a good job selling the knee, Rock does a good job exposing it and they manage to hit most of their signature spots bar the GTS. Oh and I didn't mind the table botch that much. It does take away only a little but at least they improvised with the Rock Bottom on the floor. Agree with the notion that Rock looked too weak with the Triple Powerbomb that he didn't kick out of even 1 minute after being laid out. I also agree that a Rock Bottom would have made the finish better but if the problem is Punk looking weak, then I'm all for it. 1, 2, 3 and just like that, 434 days of misery are finally over! I can't believe it, and Rock with the title is a beautiful sight. Great match with a great ending if we take out the stupid restart & Shield parts. I must admit that I am glad I didn't watch this live, though. Had I witnessed Punk's temporary victory, I would've lost it completely but downloading it the next day saved me the terror.

Overall Rating: ★★★ out of ★★★★★ (A very enjoyable event with three great matches but also because of that, it feels a bit small because there are only 4 matches. Still they HIT where it matters the most and therefore, I enjoyed this PPV! Hell, Punk's reign of terror ending would have made this a great PPV even if it was The Great American Bash 2004.)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Okay, this is my first thoughts of last night. Lets just say I'm very happy I didn't spend a penny on the FUCKERY that happened.

Royal Rumble 2013:
Show/Del Rio: * (the ending was TERRIBLE)
Hell No/Rhodes Scholars: ** (simple tag match)
Royal Rumble: ** (this dragged so much. Kingston spot was stupid, as was Hell No's. final 3 were the worst they could've had. I knew Cena was winning so I wasn't too mad. JERICHO was the best part undoubtedly.
Punk/Rock: * (awful, even before the FUCKERY at the end. Plodding pace with little to no structure. The Shield spot was pure stupidity which made no sense. I HATE face Vince.

I'd take the GAB 2004 over last night x100000. At least GAB had a superb Chavo/Rey match and a great Eddie/JBL match. This show had nothing.

Del Rio vs. Show - * - Horrible match. Eurgh.
Hell No vs. Rhodes Scholars - ** - Meh. A match that I'd expect to see on Raw or Smackdown, not one of the big four PPVs.
The Royal Rumble - * 1/2 - Stupid Kofi spot. Stupid Godather appearance. Shitty final four. Predictable winner in a very anticlimatic finish. + 1/2* for Jericho.
Punk vs. The Rock - * - Far too many unneeded shenanigans that destroyed any flow that the amtch ahd, which was very little. Plodding, boring, snoozefest with nothing remotely special about it other than maybe the crowd.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched everything so far except the main event and so far this show sucks. Del Rio/Show was a solid opener and another good but unspectacular LMS between them. They worked some cooler, bigger spots in this one like the Chokeslam through the table on the stage but they weren't able to capture the gutsy underdog slaying the giant theme as well as they did in the Smackdown match. The finish was middling for me. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. Tag titles was standard cookie cutter stuff. Not bad but totally forgettable. Jericho's return was the best part of a very mediocre Rumble. I thought it was going nicely early on with Jericho, Ziggler, Cody and Goldust but then it started to drag and I was bored and it wasn't dramatic and Cena hulked up and blah, I wasn't a fan.

Interested to see what I make of the main event. So far it seems like a HHH/Lesnar type match where some people think it's awesome, some think it's just good, and others think it was bad.

LMS**
Tag match**
RR****
Rock/Punk ***

If they have Rock in the EC i hope Punk wins the title setting up a triple threat at WM.
Still laugh over people crying about "smarks", i didn't know some of you started working for the company.
