Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So after last night my thoughts on Brock/Taker happening have grown. There's no way to conceivably build Punk up enough for the streak in 5 weeks. Not on your life and especially not after 2 big losses to Rock and then 1 to Cena. It would be even more retarded than having the match in the first place. I think we're getting the triple threat after all which is good because I'd rather have Rock/Cena/Punk than just Rock/Cena on their own. At least it's something new and Punk gets a Mania main event to cap off this run of his.

So it all comes down to whether we get Brock/Trips or Brock/Taker as the other big match. It could go either way but like I've been saying for what feels like the past month now, we'll find out next week.

THE SHIELD were once again fucking awesome btw. Everything these guys do is captivating. 3 matches and not one under 4*. I'd give this one ****. I loved it. 3 for 3 they are now and I have every faith that they'll keep impressing me. They're too good not to.

TLC - ****1/2
EC - ****1/4
Raw - ****

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My excitement for WM is DEAD atm. Cena/Rock II makes me wanna stab someone. Even the possibility of Punk in the match does nothing for me. Undertaker/Punk I'd like, but fuck knows if that's even going to happen. Del Rio/Swagger on paper looks like the most boring match ever. Feud will probably suck outside of DUTCH. Henry atm looks to be moving towards a fucking WM match with Khali. Urgh. Hope they settle their shit on TV and someone else (Mysterio? Henry "took him out" of the EC match, right? And they have great chemistry). Anyone else of interest to me doesn't seem to have any real direction moving to WM atm. Hope within the next 2 weeks things are clearer.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd be stoked if Rey and Henry got 10-15 minute midcard at Mania. If Rey even makes the card then he'll probably face Sin Cara though.

Trips is facing Brock and nobody else. He needs the win back and the Vince angle just confirms it's happening. Hunter's working the show so if not Brock then who?

There's no way Punk's ending the streak but there's no way Brock is either so Punk losing a few times before that match isn't an issue. Nobody would but it if Punk went undefeated for a year. The only guy ending the streak is Cena unless some hot shot takes the company by storm and can be a guaranteed replacement for Cena.

Pretty much sums up my thoughts. It seems like WM is shaping up to be an event of good quality that I just can't give two fucks about.

Adding Punk to Cena/Rock might makes things a little more bearable. I just have no interest in that match at all. Any combination of Cena/Rock. Bleh.

The way the card is shaping up, Punk/Taker might be the only MAIN-EVENT that I could muster any enthusiasm for. So I really hope that they don't stick Punk in the WWE title match. That match could legit steal the show and feel like a proper WM match.

Swagger/Del Rio is nothing, even with all the frills. ADR's turn, his ascension. Swagger's return, his new gimmick. It's all so forced. DUTCH is great though and it should be a good match.

I'm gutted that Henry might be moving into a feud with Khali. GUTTED (although hopefully it's short lived).

Bryan/Kane will be 5 minutes of filler.

Brock/Trips is another match that should be good that I don't care about.

Pretty excited to see what The Shield will do though. The way they've been booked is miraculous and each member is killing it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, probably the least excited I've been for a Mania in years. I'm hoping once we know what Taker/BROCK/GAME's involvement will be it will change. Fingers crossed.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think were definitely getting Rock/Punk/Cena for WrestleMania with Undertaker or Triple H facing Brock, if its HHH I don't see Undertaker working WrestleMania this year, makes sense as to why Triple H had to tell us on the Slammies we'd see him again.

The Rock hate in this thread is pretty funny, I guess its normal for 'workrate' marks but still :

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's pretty sad that we're forced to clutch onto the hopes of people like HHH/Taker/Brock performing to even want to watch Mania. They have talented people who are constantly stuck in shit feuds (Henry, Bryan, etc) and when they are given a high profile match, they lose in 18 seconds.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Agreed TLK. WWE are too scared to give people anything genuinely fresh when Mania season rolls around. It's a miracle that Punk has managed to claw his way into the upper-card at all.

The way things have been for several years, the only reason Mania has felt like Mania is becuase of guys like Taker. And it's not because the talent isn't there. Guys like Bryan and Henry deserve way better than filler.

The WM card has SO MUCH TALENT. Yet WWE have chosen quite possibly the least appealing way imaginable to organize that talent.

Although I'll try to refrain from bitching any more until the card is finalized. Then LOTS more bitching.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I bet the Mania card would rule from a match quality context if guys like Rock/Brock/Hunter/Taker weren't involved. Guys like Bryan and Cesaro would get longer more high profile matches. Not feasible at Mania though sadly.

I'm honestly not sure Punk being added to Rock/Cena makes the match better. Rock/Cena is at least a spectacle. Add another guy in there and it's much less so. Is Mania indoors this year? Hopefully it is so the atmosphere comes over on TV rather than getting lost in the air like it seemed to last year. WWE 3 way's tend to be poor and they aint having a WM20 type main event.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah I agree with that Seabs. I guess I just want Punk in that match to make it in any way interesting to me because Rock Vs Cena on their own does nothing for me... but the odds of the match being anything great as a triple threat are just as low as the singles match.

Punk/Taker is my only hope atm. Not bothered if Punk isn't in the last match, against Undertaker at WrestleMania is equal if not BETTER most of the time than being in the "main event". Undertaker IS WrestleMania these days.
