Really enjoyed reading the little discussion between HayleySabin and Segunda/WOOLCOCK earlier in the thread. Speaking of Pyro, I wonder what it would be like if he came to this thread. I've gone through discussions about Orton with him numerous times and there's no convincing this guy.
That's where his work is at for me right now. He's just not putting anything out there for me to enjoy or find as "special". I can't believe I've seen a better Sin Cara match from this year than something from Orton. To the credit, it was a tag match and it was mostly Mysterio doing the work for his team vs Hell No, but he was out there. Certainly working for Wade EVERY FRIGGIN WEEK sucks, but until I see otherwise he's going to be at the bottom of the barrel for me. I'm very over the guy and if the marking comes back I'll be surprised, quite frankly. Happy, i'm sure. But, surprised nonetheless.
Fair enough, I did what you did and relied off of one specific post. I thought I saw you say you didn't think Punk's work vs Danielson @ Over The Limit was "nothing special" either, so I used that to stomach up my comment. I still don't get the hate on the MITB match. I friggin love the hell out of it. But, we both know that. You actually liked his match vs Rock? Well, that's a new one. I even gave Punk grief for not doing anything noteworthy during that mess, haha.
Oh good grief @ posting The Undertaker vs Triple H from KOTR. That match SUCKS. Why are their matches so hit and miss?
I'll like to be positive and think that he will bounce back to the top soon. If nothing happens this year, then I'll join you in the "hopeless" team, though.
And I gotta be honest with you, when I rewatched Bryan/Punk OTL, I was pretty much in nitpick mode and just wanted to pick apart every bit of the match and rip it to shreds just because of all the hyperbole love it was getting. I should watch it again at some point and just kick back rather than over-analyze stupid shit. As for MITB, I think we've been through this before and I have explained numerous times why I can't stand it. It may not be as bad as I put it, though. Another match I need to go through. And yeah, I thought Punk/Rock was pretty good and I even gave Punk credit for doing his part.
I only posted Taker/Trips KOTR just so I can make one of my lame jokes regarding that match by linking the moment when The Rock's music hits.
Don't know why, but the random run-ins during the Attitude Era/2002 years of WWE are always some type of joke to me and crack me up. This was one example of it and Taker/Jericho running in to the Backlash 02 match between HHH/Hogan is another.
DEM JEANS >>>>>> Shit Brown Survivor Series 2002 HBK Tights. WHY DID HE WEAR THOSE ?!?!?! I know there's a story behind that on his DVD but I honestly forget what it is.
SHIT BROWN TIGHTS.

BIGGEST DREAM MATCH: Benoit vs Undertaker @ WRESTLEMANIA. Said it many times! Too bad it can only happen at video games now.
