Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My expectations lie at a **-*** range with three stars being the absolute ceiling as far as I'm concerned. Rock should be working 10-15 minutes at a really fast and entertaining pace, but instead he works over 20 minutes each time at a pace that seems to be slower than Ryback. Seriously, he has some of the worst pacing I've seen in a very long time.

Come to think of it, Rock nowadays kind of has all of the same problems as Ryback except he has charisma (but for some reason opts to say complete and utter nonsense 90 percent of the time) and his selling is pretty good.

The other three main events however, I'll be looking forward too. I'd bet anybody that after EC is over, the 6 man tag will be the WWE MOTY currently up until Mania probably. The SHIELD just puts in that character work. The Chamber has a TON of potential too if they don't give Khali a spot ; currently we have Bryan, Mysterio, Orton, and Henry in there. Out of all of those in the present day I'd say Mysterio is the worst sadly (his regression amazes me) , and he'll be great cannon fodder for HENRY anyways. FUCK YEAH.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If you gave out spoilers from Smackdown I'll be a tad peeved, tbhayley.

Even if those two new names in the match do rule.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

OH TRUST ME, they weren't spoilers, just the fact that we APPARENTLY get a good Henry-Orton match that I'm gonna need to check out.

I haven't watched Smackdown in YEARS, just realized that. If I hear there was something worth watching I'll check it out but other than that I haven't really watched a full episode of Smackdown in a really, really long time.

Rick Martel vs Koko Ware was actually a pretty decent opener. ** 1/2 from where I sit, better than some of the other Mania openers we were getting in the earlier years.

PS: FUCK WRESTLEMANIA IV.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Mark Henry is the only guy who will draw me in SD other than TLK. He had SEVERAL good Orton matches in 2011/2012 so I have to see this. Hopefully he does the Orton pose like he did at a couple of house hows.

Koko Fucking Ware, btw.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Dude, go back and watch the tag team match from last week. Team Hell No vs Mysterio & Cara. It's like really GOOD.

Plus, Dolph vs Del Rio was a quality match itself too.

First time since I think the Cena vs Del Rio match last year that I liked matches on Smackdown.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

MARK "ratings" HENRY brings me back to Smackdown. HELL, I might even watch this week. Come to think of it, I'm a huge fan of the full time talent that's currently in the company ; Punk is my second favorite ever, I ADORE Bryan, Henry, Cena, Show, and Jericho, and I enjoy DOLPH and Del Rio on a consistent basis. That's alot of fucking talent TBH, and I'm hoping "Hall of Pain" Henry's here the entire year for these feuds ;

vs Cena
vs Bryan
vs Jericho
vs Del Rio
vs Sheamus

Does anybody here really wanna see Henry-Del Rio as much as I do ? FUCK that shit would be epic @ MANIA, hopefully DAT BOY wins the chamber.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker vs Edge @ ONS 08 ; EW.

I really, really like Sheamus-Morrison in the sense that it's one of my favorite ladder matches ever. Sheamus and Morrison had this fucking odd chemistry together that not alot of guys have that they could go out and have a great match no matter the circumstance.

HBK-Jericho is a universally heralded match though. Seen some people throw the full five, some people throw four at it, and some people being right in the middle of that (like myself). I'd put it as the third best match of 2008 next to Edge-Taker @ Mania and Edge-Taker @ Summerslam. Need to rewatch though, and I won't for a while until I watch EVERY SINGLE WRESTLEMANIA FIRST.

Only difference between us is I didn't care much for Undertaker vs Edge. **1/2

All of their other matches though. Pretty top notch.

Yeah, completely forgot how good Morrison/Sheamus was. That shit was awesome.

HBK/Jericho Ladder Match is hands down my 2008 match of the year and feud of the year. Wasn't too big on the overall Edge/Taker feud. Didn't dig the chemistry ( or lack there of).
