@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.
Jeff Hardy's best promo work came following his heel turn in 2010. It's actually quite good.

He did and I'm happy.

Lesnar/HHH >>>>> by a mile though. The limb work and selling in that match blows Punk/Rock out of the water. For me personally anyways.
Something dearly lacked in that match. Cena vs Rock over that match any day. I think there should be a stipulation in their next match, but not sure if Rock can take it, I mean he isn't a permanent star and seriously can't afford SERIOUS injury, but for the sake of quality, something should step up, or stipulation.

Like you said, it was enjoyable for the sole purpose of hoping the Rock could overcome Punk. The match was ok.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Didn't like Brock vs H either. It has Punk vs Rock beat on nearly every level though. Punker vs Rock was horrible.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rock/Cena II should have no disqualifications. They should implement more brawling, a faster pace, and have no down periods. It would be ideal to keep it hot all the way through. That means match time should be around 15-18 minutes imo. Every big main event doesn't need to go 20+ minutes imo. Leave out the fat, work the crowd into a frenzy with the big moves and well-built kick outs. With the raucous atmosphere they are expected to have it should be a proper WrestleMania "epic" match if all goes well. I'm not excited for this feud at all but with the right ingredients it could turn out to be a better match than last year which people are split on the actual quality anyway.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

@ Clique

Definitely agree with the noDQ, Cena should also show more of a I really want to hurt this guy attitude as well. Give it a sort of HHH vs Taker mania 17 feel. Anything to give it more of a spark from the last one.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Brock/HHH - ****1/4, loved it.
Punk/Rock - ***1/2, I'm expecting more at Elimination Chamber.

Still haven't had a **** WWE match in 2013, I'd give **** to the Rumble but I find it hard to rank them among other matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll save my re-watch of HHH/Brock for closer to Mania if they are indeed doing the rematch. I've seen it two or three times anyway. I know I like it and I know I think it's good. Not sure if I'll be able to watch Cena/Rock again though. I might just for the sake of being able to compare it to WM29 if Cena/Rock II happens. Punk/Rock I've seen twice and have no intention of ever watching it again.

Anyone think they might do Cody/Goldust at Mania? I'm definitely down to see that.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Brock/Hunter was a massive disappointment. Hunter's faux heroic babyface performance was cringeworthy.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm gonna give Brock/HHH a re-watch right around the corner from Mania and see if I can complete it. I don't know, maybe by some chance the feud to Mania will actually be great and it'll give me more motivation to sit through the whole Summerslam match in anticipation for their Wrestlemania match.

I'll probably do the same with Rock/Cena, though I do think that'll be a lot easier as that match was comfortably better than Brock/HHH to me.

Cody/Goldust never really interested me as much as it should've. I suppose it'd be a fine under-card match to give Cody something to do. May as well give some WM predictions, even some match order and times of matches. We'll have Rock/Cena as the main event, Lesnar/HHH as the sub-main event, Taker/Punk as the big streak match, The Shield against Orton, Sheamus, and Ryback (I'm having my doubts about Orton/Sheamus for Mania now with their being no EC match for The Shield apparently, though I have heard the rumors of Ryback/Jericho), Maybe a World Title triple threat or fatal four way, AJ/Kaitlyn for the Divas Title, Barrett/Jericho for the IC Title, Cesaro/Swagger for the US Title (I still think there may be a Swagger face turn at some point in the next 4-5 weeks), Kane/Bryan, Mysterio/Cara, and Cody/Goldust.

11 matches. That's about right, right? As for order and times each match are given (including any video package, entrances, and after-match celebrations), I'd see it being:
WHC Fatal Four Way (23 minutes)
Swagger/Cesaro (11 minutes)
Cody/Goldust (7 minutes)
Lesnar/HHH (mainly this early for the same reason as Taker/HHH last year, to give a lot of room between it and Rock/Cena) (31 minutes)
Kane/Bryan (13 minutes)
The Shield/Ryback-Orton-Sheamus (26 minutes)
Barrett/Jericho (14 minutes)
Mysterio/Cara (20 minutes)
AJ Lee/Kaitlyn (8 minutes)
Taker/Punk (26 minutes)
Rock/Cena (33 minutes)

That totals 212 minutes, leaving 28 minutes for promos, performances, and whatever, though usually WWE leave 10-15 minutes open at the end, so it really leaves 13-18 minutes, which depending on the amount of performances (if they have any), may not be enough.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bought a few Blu-rays over the last few days. They all arrived pretty quickly!

Best of King Of The Ring
Wrestlemania 24 (had it on DVD but wanted the BD)
The Story of Edge
Raw 100
Extreme Rules 2012
Falls Count Anywhere

Watching the KOTR set, finally watched HBK/Bulldog for the first time and I loved it. Fantastic wrestling match. ****at least on first watch imo.

Hogan/Yokozuna was interesting. It was Hulk's last WWF match for 9 years because he left after he dropped the belt. Hogan was still fan favourite but you could just kind of tell that the magic wasn't there anymore. Even Hogan seemed like he was just going through the motions.
