Yeah, I used to think it was like that, but my loose translation of it nowadays is 3* good, 4* great, 5* excellent and what wrestling is all about. Mind you, the only match I have ever rated 5* is

Mind you, the only match I've ever rated 5* is HHH/Batista Hell in a Cell, most of the time I just tend to go with what everybody else says

Whats the so called best matches you guys havent seen?
Damn near all of them, heh. As of now, the burning ones are HHH/Jericho LMS and HHH/Foley in that hardcore match, as well as the original HiaC and the original Elimination Chamber. Also CM Punk's 08-09 work with Undertaker, Hardy etc.

I also watched an extremely grainy version of 'that' No Mercy tag match, but I need to buy the actual PPV to watch it properly.

If it's a good deal go for it. I probably would wait until it is markdown because I don't think the set is that great. I'd get the best PPV matches of 2011 before the TV stuff.

Royal Rumble 2007

John Cena vs. Umaga - ****1/4

Excellent match. Cena selling really did bug me though, he didn't do a fantastic job. I mean his core of his body was supposed to be in pain but only sold it when he was punched in the stomach or lifted Umaga. When he did decide to sell however, it came across cheap and shit, I don't know just didn't come off well for me. The announcer table spot could have been a bit better imo too. Umaga was a star, I loved him in 07, especially with his program with Triple H despite him jobbing to him every time. Shame he loved the roids and the weed. Not a patch on the best ever LMS, Trips/Jericho but great nonetheless.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I must be in the minority but selling like in Cena/Umaga and Taker/Brock really didn't bother me when I watched those matches. Maybe I suspend my disbelief more but I didn't see any issues in those matches like I did with Cena in his I Quit and Iron Man matches with Orton. In those matches the selling is completely thrown out of the window and by the end of those matches you'd think Cena didn't just get tortured minutes prior to the finish.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It doesn't bother me in the HIAC, and I'm never usually fussed but because the was strapped up and the video package made a deal out of it, it felt necessary to the match. I don't understand why they didn't forget about the ribs and let Cena fight. Well I do, it was make Cena look even more vulnerable than he already was and to think maybe couldn't pull it off.

Oh and those two Hogan moments in the match where he just shook off a 15 minute beat down and started running on pure adrenaline was laughable, I hate that shit.

I've heard Unforgiven 2001 Angle/Austin rivals their Summerslam match. Thinking its impossible I'm gonna give this a watch now.

Rivals, no, but its still really good. I'd throw **** at it, and ****3/4 at their SS match which I'd rank as a top match for the company.

To me this was the exact reason it bothered me and stopped it being a ***** match for me, they had built it up, Brock had focussed on it and Taker was screaming in pain, which I don't remember Taker ever doing to the degree he was in this match.

To then have Taker start picking Brock up with the hand and then Chokeslam him just made all of that seem pointless. I was really into the match but it made me just roll my eyes and almost lose interest in the match, luckily they got me back for the brilliant ending

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Cena did a damn great job at selling in his match with Umaga. Not many people these actually go to the extent of selling an injury even when they're lifting an opponent. Most of the times they just sell the body part when it is getting attacked.

Anyway, I'm planning on watching Cena vs Orton Bragging Rights 2009, is it worth the hour?

For me personally, it's a pretty damn safe bet that I'm never going to watch that match again as long as I live. However I have seen a fair few people praise it so it really is your call.

If you haven't seen their No Way Out match though, I would highly recommend giving that a go. And this is coming from someone who has never particularly enjoyed any of their other matches(at least off the top of my head, I could be forgetting one or two).
