I can see the match being 'career vs. career' with a No Holds Barred stipulation again.

With Lesnar re-signing for two years, it could be used as a way to officially end Triple H's career. It would make sense too, based on where they went with the angle post-SummerSlam and Triple H cutting that promo on Raw teasing retirement.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just rewatched HHH/Lesnar. **** 1/4. This is a very very good match. I didn't realize how good was this match the first time. Great moments (first 2 HHH's clothelines throwing brock out of the ring, brock removing his gloves, the low blow), amazing selling from both men, and a shocking finish ( brock no selling the pedigree). I'm okay for a rematch ( i wasn't just 30 min ago...)

Rewathed Bryan/ Punk at Over the limit match. Still amazing and still **** 1/2.

ADR/Orton/Jericho/Sheamus at over the limit is the best multiple men match of 2012 (TLC match doesn't count because it's a tag) **** 1/4. The final sequence is out of this world.

Damn i hope 2013 will be as good as 2012 matchwise

You really should. It was a really good match.

I think on my last watch of it I had it at a ***3/4 or ****.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

OTL 4 Way is ★★★★ for me. Very awesome back and forth action involving any combinations of two from the four. Really enjoyed it.

On another note, I saw Dean Malenko being discussed a few pages back earlier today and that made me wanna go watch a match of his with Eddie and the first result that came up was Starrcade 97 so I rolled with that. Very enjoyable match and Malenko's wrestling style is awesome even if he's got no personality or facial expressions ("The Iceman"). ★★★.

With that said, it also blows my mind that people say Benoit had no personality/charisma. Sure, his mic skills were nothing but charisma is not the same thing. That's shown by the fact he received constant standing ovations even after losing a match as well as his awesome facial expressions whether selling or celebrating.

Same here. I also think people blow this whole "THE ROCK IS GASSED" thing way out of proportion. To me, it looks like he's selling.

I think he was a bit tbh, same with the Cena match, but it isn't surprising. He isn't used to being in the ring anymore. Ring rust and stamina issues are to be expected. It isn't like Taker or HHH or Jericho who have all stayed wrestling regularly for a much longer time than him. It's just going to take him a bit to get back in the full swing of things.

OTL 4 way ****1/4 I think I had it at. Great match. The pace was great.

Nah. It's good. That's about it. Nothing to really go out of your way to see.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've been hearing a lot about hat OTL 4 way, I can't even recall it ever happening. Speaking of 4 ways, there was on SD over the summer last year that was really fun.

@C2D, Agree about Benoit.The charisma he didn't have on the mic, he more than made up for in the ring with. Also in terms of promo work, Benoit wasn't great but he got the job done.

Benoit reminds me of Jeff. No, please don't take that the wrong way. I'm not saying Jeff is anything like Benoit in the ring. But both of them were similar in that the charisma they lacked on the mic was more than made up for in the ring.

Oh btw, I just want to point out that Jeff's best mic work was definitely the promo after his Ladder match with Taker. The entire scenario from the match to the aftermath is just wrestling at its best imo. Very emotional. To me, THAT'S wrestling. One of my favourite matches/moments of all time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rock/Punk- ***3/4 on watch earlier today. Still a great match, fantastic selling, psychology, and overall in-ring work up until The Shield attack where things get fucked up. Didn't mind The Shield stuff as much on last viewing, though it still irks me quite a bit. It has some pacing problems but Punk's work-over The Rock and his mid-section was awesome and with that the pace didn't bother me too much. Rock's attack on Punk's legs, leading to the sharp-shooter was brilliant as well. I also liked all the Rock-Bottom attempts and Punk's apparent urgency to get out, which was some great storytelling going along with what Rock said on Friday. Makes me wish even more that Rock did end up beating Punk with a Rock-Bottom, or at least a Rock-Bottom into the People's Elbow.

Lesnar/HHH- *** and I did try watching it today, but I just couldn't sit through it again. I think in the back of my mind, I only watched it to see Lesnar TAKE DEM GLOVES OFF because following that, I wasn't paying attention and was doing other stuff with the match in the background until I finally just decided to close the browser. Pacing's terrible, and Brock's control segment put me out of it more and more until I decided to just give up. I know the match gets better following Lesnar's stomach being driven into the announce table, and it wasn't so bad at the beginning, but mid-match it's just dreadful. I'll give it another shot later in the week and won't lower the rating since I should suffer through it all before that, but it's disappointing.

OTL four-way was great, and I had it at ***3/4, but haven't seen it since a second watch of the PPV shortly after it happened. Need to re-watch.

I'm watching you...
