Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I just wrote a big piece about how Rock/Cena actually has a reason to exist unlike Trips/Lesnar but I accidentally erased it so FUCK. Basically the point of it was that Cena should have rightfully won the first one, so it'll be good for him to get his win back here in all honesty and end the Rock/Cena arc once and for all.

Trips-Lesnar on the other hand is DONE. Lesnar broke the arm, they had the match, Lesnar broke the arm again and there's literally NOWHERE to go from here honestly. The fact that they're hinting at some Heyman/Punk/Brock/Vince Mania storyline makes me believe Trips isn't working at Mania this year.

I can't decide which match I adore more in Brock/Trips and Punk/Cena. Believe it or not I think both are the two greatest Summerslam main events of all time and it isn't even close seriously. I don't know which one would be one and which one would be two TBH.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, the crowd didn't give a fuck at all about HHH/Lesnar. It was an alright match. It was on Classics on Demand a couple weeks back, so I got to see it again. The finish makes no sense, though. I like how Triple H picks on an issue that Brock deals with in real life, his stomach. Great story-telling and completely logical...until the finish. Triple H pedigrees Brock for a 2nd time (in this case, the pedigree is a perfect finisher to hurt Brock, since he lands flat on his stomach in the pedigree). So, Brock eats a *2nd* pedigree, a move that should hurt the shit out of his stomach, since he has real life stomach issues and Triple H had been working on his stomach throughout the match. But then Brock completely no sells the 2nd pedigree AND locks in the Kimora lock and makes Triple H tap.

I can deal with the occasional no sell. But no selling a real life issue that had even been pointed out in commentary? Didn't like that. Still a pretty good match, but the finish is fucked. ***1/2 - ***3/4

Love the first MITB match, and the caliber of talent were better in that match, but I think WrestleMania 24 MITB match might just be my favorite. Might have to watch the first MITB match again now, even though I've seen it many times. It's a match I can just watch over and over again. 24's a decent show, will soon re-watch Flair/HBK and Edge/Taker and give my thoughts/ratings on them.

Triple H, Edge, Jeff Hardy and Vladamir Kozlov I think they definitely had room but at least he got a shot at Unforgiven.
MVP should of been a main-eventer and World Champion. He was awesome in 2007/2008, after that they ruined him by jobbing him out and turning him face. I'd much rather have MVP main-eventing over Vladamir Kozlov back then.

Agreed on those matches, I think there also could be Henry/Ryback and maybe Orton/Sheamus. Del Rio's bound to be on the card to, probably in the World Title match. My dream World Title match for Mania is Ziggler/Jericho, but I think Del Rio will be in it. If Ziggler cashes in at EC then Del Rio could use his rematch clause for a match at Mania, in addition to the winner of the number one contender Chamber match to setup a potential triple threat for Mania for the World Title.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The only way they can sneak in a reason for a Brock/HHH II is the fact that Lesnar F-5'd Vince, so they could have the very flimsy excuse for Hunter to come back and save the day..............again, and get his win 'back' probably.

Or its DAT legendary burying ego thing..

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The most interesting thing I'm looking forward to the crowds reaction to Cena's win. Hope for complete silence.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hunter is essentially a Wrestlemania jobber , so I doubt he'd feel the need to get "his win back" , seriously. The more I hear about CORPORATE GAME, the more and more I think his next match isn't going to be for another while honestly.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I sort of agree that Rock/Cena II is the right thing to do. In a way it kind of is. It was a precarious situation. Usually the current guy should go over the past guy. But Mania was in Miami and John Cena isn't your average star shall we say. Half the fans hate his guts, probably even more than that and I was there in Sunlife Stadium. I have absolutely no doubt that 99.9% of the people in there paid their money to see The Rock beat John Cena that night. It's what the people wanted and I think WWE made the right call in having Rock go over. That still leaves the problem of the past going over the present. That isn't right. By having the rematch, Cena goes over, WWE is able to imprint that the current generation IS as good as the past generation and their current top guy gets his biggest win ever. I thought about it that way and I can totally understand why Rock/Cena kind of needs to happen.

Trips/Brock doesn't need to happen though, 100% agreed on that. Brock didn't want the first match, Trips goaded him into it, got his arm broken twice and then tapped out. Brock won decisively and quit. It ended. Now he's back attacking Vince. Triple H has a reason to want a rematch but Brock doesn't. If it does indeed happen, I don't know how they get him to accept. I guess they could use HHH's career as the carrot to dangle in front of Lesnar's face to get him to agree so he can end the game once and for all. I just don't know. Given the reaction of some LA fans to the ending of the last match though, I don't think it's particularly wise of them to go that particular route in New York of all places. The potential is there for the fans to shit all over it and like him or not, Trips doesn't deserve that as his retirement send off. Nobody does.

But hey, all will become clear in 2/3 weeks time. Not long to wait now. At this rate though, I'm starting to think either Trips or Taker isn't working Mania. Food for thought, HHH is on the Mania 29 promo bus while Taker isn't, meanwhile, Taker is in the Mania 29 promo ad while HHH isn't. DAT DECEPTION.

I certainly hope your right mate, a Lesnar/Punk confrontation could be very good indeed if they do it right.

I would be worried if he doesn't show up or announced for a return next Monday. That's when the RTWM really gets into gear after getting past the hurdle that is the February PPV - Elimination Chamber.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wonder why Hunter said at the Slammys that "You ain't seen the last of the undertaker", was a deal being discussed then but has since maybe fell apart, or did he just mean furthur down the line re: taker's next appearance.

But if course, noone knows so the next fortnight will be 'interesting'.
