Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Time to catch up on stuff and update THE LIST.
Team Hell No v Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara - Smackdown (2/1/13)
Good, fun TV tag match worked at a nice pace with a bunch of cool looking moves and sequences. Very easy to sit through and enjoy from start to finish. Sin Cara actually looked good for a change. Not sure if that's a testament to how good Bryan is or if he's just better suited to working tag matches. Probably a bit of both. Either way this is worth a watch.
Alberto Del Rio v Dolph Ziggler - Smackdown (2/1/13)
Also well worth watching. Why has no one mentioned this? It's not great or anything but I thought it was a really good showcase for Del Rio as the fighting babyface champion. Definitely starting to appreciate him in that role. He's good at making himself seem vulnerable with his bumping and selling (Orton could learn a thing or two in that regard) and his offense is great, case in point being stiff shots to Ziggler's back followed by a backstabber in the ropes here. Ziggler btw takes the best turnbuckle corner bumps in the business. Dude flies and EATS it. These two have a great match in them and I'm thinking we'll get the chance to see it this year on PPV.
Chris Jericho v CM Punk - Raw (2/4/13)
I might be the only person who doesn't think this is a great match. I enjoyed it live but watching it again I don't think I'd add it to my list. Up until they started teasing finishers and going back and forth down the stretch the match was just kind of there and the crowd being SHIT didn't help it one bit. Overall it's still a good match and I liked some of the stuff they did. Thought they did a good job building to Jericho getting the Walls on Punk, and Punk being unable to lift Jericho for the GTS after being in the Walls was a neat little touch that I appreciated. Also thought Punk's counter to the Walls which led to the finish was good. It tends to look contrived at times but it didn't here. I'll probably give this another re-watch somewhere down the line to see if I like it more but for now it's in the 'good not great' category and lacking that little bit extra to make it onto my list.
So we're still left with:
1. Dolph Ziggler v Sheamus - Main Event (1/9/13)
2. CM Punk v Ryback - Raw (1/7/13)
