Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I think Cena was FANTASTIC in 2007 but I find it hard to give him MOTY when Shawn Michaels was fuckng BALLIN' throughout most of it. Coming from somebody who just watched their Mania match I can tell you that Shawn's performance in that match is one of the best performances I have ever seen from him, which is covering ALOT of fucking ground. Then you have the DX-Rated RKO tag, his EPIC RUMBLE FINISH against Undertaker, NWO 07 tag, Backlash 2007 four way, and of course his series of matches with Orton including the epic Survivor Series bout.
I don't know.... I just really, REALLY fucking adored Shawn's performance in that Wrestlemania match, that was something special that you don't see too often.
In regards to Undertaker, I think he's elevated whoever he's been with over the last few years to a new level TBH. Starting with Orton, then in 2006 he tried to get Kennedy over HARD and succeeded but Kennedy fucked it up, 2007 it was Batista (who actually WON the feud in the end believe it or not), 2008 it was Edge, 2009 he TRIED with Punk but something wasn't clicking... He's been a part timer ever since.
Makes me optimistic that if Punk-Taker actually happens at Wrestlemania than it could be a build for the ages. Punk is the undisputed best all around talent the company has at this point (IMO of course) with his promo work being at the highest point it's ever been, and with his current character arc it only makes sense for him to try and end the Streak on the grandest stage of them all. I don't LIKE the idea that Punk deserves a main event and isn't getting one, but I'm 99 percent sure that he'll get a Wrestlemaia main event before his career is over.
Getting THE STREAK at this point when Taker has limited matches left in his career shows one thing and one thing only ; that you've become elevated to a whole new level. If Punk gets a STREAK match than it just shows how far he has come in terms of status with the company.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
