Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
There's a difference between a good match and a good performance. I don't really expect anyone v Barrett to be good, but if the wrestler opposite him is talented then the performance by that wrestler should be good. Orton isn't bad, but he does nothing to show me he's particularly good any more. Being in there with the same not-good opponent like Barrett isn't an excuse for not being very good yourself.
I don't give a fuck who you are or what position you are in, being in a match with a Barrett multiple times isn't an excuse to phone it in.
EDIT- Nice point @ Cody. Christian is a perfect example. Worked with everyone on anyone on the roster between 09-11 and looked like one of the best wrestlers in the world during that time no matter who was in there or what booking he got. In some cases, the absolute best.
