Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Bryan? OMG! Punk to have a third MOTYC at a PPV in a row? Not to mention the EC was good and the match with Ziggler at the Rumble was great as well. Punk is having a fantastic year thus far.

And if given time, you know these two will deliver. They delivered earlier this year on Raw every time they met, with one of their matches being great. Give them 20 minutes or more at OTL and that's another serious MOTYC for Punk, and actually would be another one for Bryan as well after his match with Sheamus last night.

Speaking of MOTY's, right now my list is like this:

1) Punk/Jericho ER- ****1/4
2) Bryan/Sheamus ER- ****
3) Brock/Cena ER- ****
4) Punk/Jericho WM- ****
5) Taker/HHH WM- ****

Keep in mind I still have to re-watch the ER matches and those are still my first viewing, so some might go down and some might go up.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Quick Extreme Rules star ratings from yours truly.

-Kane/Orton - ***1/4
--Fantastic match, well paced, made use of the stip, a great near fall after the chokeslam from Kane, and a fun finish that I personally enjoyed.

-Clay/Ziggler - **
--Why are we wasting Ziggler like this?

-Show/Rhodes - **3/4
--The finish protects Show and gets Cody his momemtum back while building heat at the same time. Well done.

-Bryan/Sheamus - ****
--Slow start, but strong finish. Every fall was done in a way to protect the other guy. Both men looked good.

-Ryback squash - unrated
--GOLDBERG! GOLDBERG!

-Punk/Jericho - ****1/2
--Great much with loads of awesome spots. Punk was in top form tonight. Just worked so well.

-Divas - **
--Layla looks really good and not just from a beauty aspect.

-Cena/Lesnar - ****1/2
--INSANE match even after having the decision and major spots spoiled for me. Cena took an ass beating. I still believe there was a small portion of shoot fighting amongst that. Small instances, but still. Very convincing and brutal match. Loved it.

Fave matches in order - 1. Punk/Jericho 2. Orton/Kane 3. Cena/Lesnar

Overall, Extreme Rules 2012 - ****

About halfway through Extreme Rules. Just finished Sheamus/Bryan. It was awesome but did anyone else think Sheamus' selling of the arm could've been much much better?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Sheamus V Bryan is getting hella overrated on here, I mean its was still very good, but Sheamus barely selling the arm after passing out from pain from the "Yes!" Lock was lol worthy, also after Bryan got the second fall it was very obvious as to who was gonna win and the abrupt finish was just that, abrupt.

Punk V Jericho and Cena V Crock were both full on awesome however.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I agree with Hohenheim on Jericho/Punk. In fact, I'd probably have it at ***1/2, maybe even ***1/4. I prefer their Wrestlemania match. The middle portion of the streetfight kind of fought against the story of the match (Punk exacts revenge from Jericho), with Jericho actually dominating Punk dramatically and not especially well in the "heel puts the babyface through hell" kind of way, so much as simply genuinely outsmarting and easily deflecting against him. However, the final eight or ten minutes were pretty great, making it a good, solid streetfight, overall. Hot beginning with Punk's family and the intricate story they told on the outside, but in the ring it kind of choked itself out a bit for a while until they picked it back up for the climax.

I'm looking forward to seeing their Wrestlemania match again, but to me, as a story and a wrestling match, I honestly far preferred that.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not too fond of the Mania match either, but Jericho|Punk was MADE by the crowd. There were some really good parts such as Punk getting violent over Jericho trying to approach his sister, beer raining down on Punk, the finishing stretch etc, but to me it felt like a rehash of Shawn|Jericho from Unforgiven 08. The fire extinguisher, the whole system of brawling (even though they're both really bad brawlers), the dive through the announce table etc.

Really good match but can't really compare with Bryan|Sheamus or BROCK|CENA, the former of which was beyond amazing and the latter was FH()N@()DJ{)@(_!J{)~!!!

EDIT: AS(JH)(!N D))~~_!IU~!!!

Yeah, I'm taking away the 5 lol. I got caught up in the moment but it can't be given 5* when the finish was so poor and just didn't make sense in the context of the match. For that I'll have it at ****3/4. It was like Cena/Umaga LMS, which I absolutely adore, but even better. No matter what happens with Lesnar from here on out, this match is truly something special and will no doubt stand the test of time as just that.

A lot of people has save said this and I tend to agree, he didn't see it too well.

I guess that's no more Lesnar for the time being including Triple H. Makes the booking of him losing to Cena even more retarded.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Kane/Orton - **3/4
Slightly prefer this to the WrestleMania match.
Brodus/Ziggler - *
The better of the two "dominant unbeaten force" matches, and Brodus actually has a credible opponent.
Show/Cody - *3/4
Disaster kick from the table was great. And a good, surprise ending which Big Show sold great with his facial expression. Probably about as good as the WM match plus you get the extra goodness of Cody getting smashed through two tables afterwards.
Bryan/Sheamus - ****
My MOTN. Wish there was more near-falls in the final fall though. Most of them were in the first fall and it didn't matter a huge deal then. Loved Bryan's sadistic smile after being DQed.
Ryback/jobbers - DUD
What the hell was this? Embarrassing to include non-WWE jobbers on a PPV, and give them MIC TIME?!
Punk/Jericho - ****
I liked the feel the match had with their street fight attires. Slight sloppiness prevented it from being best match on the night.
Bella/Layla - 1/2*
Plus an extra half star for Layla's return.
Lesnar/Cena - ***1/2
No idea how to rate this. Was great viewing enjoyment but I look unfavourably at the super Cena ending. The Lesnar over-the-top rope botch had me "whoa"ing.


Great PPV overall. Shame about the squash and jobbers matches; if only they were taken out and we had something with a bit more substance. Say, the tag title match from Raw.
