You review shows/matches here, the Raw thread or the official PPV thread. Do you know how many threads we'd have if everyone made one for their review of a show/match?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Because if everyone made a thread on their opinion of extreme rules we would have hundreds of them, the same goes with RAW. Sticky threads are there for a reason, to stop countless threads being made and all topic of conversation can be in one thread for all to see and discuss.

Sorry - he bladed - you can see him take the blade out of the wristcuff. The camera angles and cuts prove that. After the clothesline from Brock, Cena rolls over and pulls the blade from wrist cuff. The camera changes to Brock, and then all of a sudden Cena is bleeding. He bladed.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus - Finally Bryan Danielson gets a oppurtunity to show-off his incredible in-ring skills in a 20 minute plus matchup. Last Sunday he showed that he has the ability to have a quality match with pretty much any superstar on the roster if given the time.

Don’t get me wrong – by no means did Bryan carry Sheamus - Sheamus did very well and probably wrestled the best match of his career to date. I do think though that he undersold the arm that Bryan assaulted throughout the match. Which incidentally I found very refreshing, with some original holds like when he stretched the fingers.

I thought the first fall was a good move. It made Bryan look clever and very sneaky, especially when the camera panned to his smug face. The second fall irritated me slightly, it was good that Bryan won it but Sheamus should’ve tapped.(Obviously that was never going to happen since Sheamus is a top babyface and top babyfaces never submit) Bryan then had the crowd going absolutely berserk just by waving his arms repeatedly in the air whilst Sheamus was down. Bryan kicking out of the brogue kick afterwards was also a good move, it made him look a lot stronger.

The end of the match was a little flat, with Sheamus going through his signature moves then proceeding to pin Bryan. It felt like Bryan needed to mount some sort of comeback only to be hit with a Brogue kick, instead of just Sheamus going through the motions.

****1/2

CM Punk vs Jericho – Was a pretty enjoyable match. The emotion that I felt from both competitors throughout was amazing, there was a nice concoction of hardcore and wrestling as well. I really enjoyed Punk’s family having to watch him get beaten down by Jericho and then Punk coming back. The announcer’s table spot was pretty awesome from Punk, when he almost fell of the ropes he inadvertently sold his injuries I thought, even though it seemed accidental.

Just like Bryan vs Sheamus though the ending was a little flat, with Jericho going for The GTS only for it to be reversed into a GTS from Punk himself and then him winning via pinfall. In my opinion it should have finished with Punk locking in Walls of Jericho and then Jericho having to tap while facing CM Punk’s family, it would have been a lot more appropriate.

***3/4

John Cena vs Brock – Lesnar

One of the most original matches I’ve seen in WWE. It’s the closest I’ve seen to real in the WWE. It started off with Lesnar elbowing Cena repeatedly in the skull, with Cena getting busted open in the process. Then to the dismay of myself and the fans in attendance the doctors came into the ring and wiped the blood off. The process then repeated itself with the fans getting more agitated.

As the match progressed Lesnar dominated, Cena occasionally got a flurry of moves in but aside from that it was all Lesnar. This really put Lesnar over as a beast, and made him look damn near unbeatable.

Eventually though out of nowhere, after receiving a pummeling throughout the match, Lesnar gets complacent and runs chargers towards Cena who’s out the ring. Cena cheap shots him with a chain then goes in the ring, and gives him an Attitude Adjustment onto the steel ring steps and is victorious via pinfall.

The finish of the match irritated a lot of fans including myself at the time, but after putting some thought into the day after, irritated me a little less.

Cena’s win was not remotely clean. He got pinned for about 7 seconds in the middle of the match and there were points were Brock could have pinned Cena but didn’t – wanting to inflict more punishment first. Cena won the match by a cheap shot and hitting what is a very powerful finishing move (Kayfabe).

Additionally, Brock Lesnar would’ve looked unstoppable if he’d won last night. He would’ve absolutely destroyed the man who’s the number one face of the WWE. Let’s say a few months down the line they want him to put over somebody like CM Punk, would it look remotely realistic if he beat the man who had destroyed John Cena - who has at one point defeated pretty much everyone on the roster? I don’t think it would.

I do disagree with the decision to have Cena win, however I do not believe it is as disastrous as everyone is making it out to be.

**** 1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Why the hell would Cena blade on the top of his head instead of on his forehead like normal lol? Don't be silly. It's clear as day that he was opened up the hard way.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If Cena had bladed then why on earth would they come on and clean him up?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Finally watching Extreme Rules and just finished Sheamus/Bryan. A really really good match made even better by that incredible Chicago crowd. I honestly think it would be getting even higher ratings if it had taken place in ROH. The only faults I can think of is Sheamus not selling the arm enough but that's nit-picking really and the slight flatness of the ending - ****1/2 for me
