Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Agreed w/ Starbuck. Over The Limit is probably Christian and Randy's best non gimmick match ever if I do say so myself, although I'm very high on Orton's Wrestlemania XXI match with Taker. Orton hasn't really had that many OMFGEPICZ!*! matches so to speak, but when the wheels are rolling he's one consistent motherfucker. I can remember when in 2011 I would look forward to catching his matches but as 2012 rolled around became completely disjointed and disinterested in what he was doing because it was lacking quality.
I'm a fan of all of the Christian/Orton matches TBH, from the first SD match to the last SD CAGE match I'd have them all at atleast *** 1/2, and probably the best pure SERIES of 2011 as Punk/Cena was more sporadic and all over the place at times despite having better matches.
When it comes to Christian it's pretty sad to say this , but I missed alot of what would be considered his "peak" in 2009/2010 due to my complete exile from the WWE product because of my complete RAGE at where the product was (Trips losing the belt to JEFF HARDY, PUNK being pushed to the wayside) and only caught the bigger shows such as Mania XXV and XXVI, meaning I missed a ton of his ECW run.
