Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread


Watched this one at the parent's house again. It's hilariously awesome watching PPVs with them. They are the definition of hardcore fan turned casual. It's great to get their perspective on the current product. Plus, they pay for the event and provide dinner.

Alberto Del Rio vs Big Show - You know it's bad when my dad comes home with dinner while this match is going on and says "they're fighting again?"

My parents both enjoy Del Rio, and truth be told the match wasn't all that bad. Not as good as the SD LMS, but about on par with the Rumble match. **1/2

Antonio Cesaro vs The Miz - Dad really likes Cesaro. Both parents can't believe they paid money to see The Miz. My parents are awesome. Decent match with a shockingly good performance from Miz and a typical LEGIT performance from Cesaro. Guy is a machine. Shit ending. **

Elimination Chamber - This is where things started to become a bit polarizing. I rooted for Danielson. Mom thinks he's funny. Dad has no idea how he'll be able to hang with the others given his size until I explain that Bryan is the GOAT wrestler. My dad insists that isn't the same Kane. He must've said "I still don't think that's the same Kane but you'd know best" a good 20 times. Mom loves Jericho. Dad was rooting for Swagger after Zeb's immigration promo . It was a really fun match and their interest in who they thought would win made it even better. My dad replayed the ending sequence between Jericho and Orton twice. That was a damn good finishing stretch. Entertaining match. ****

Shield vs WWE ALLSTARS - Mom left the room once Cena's music hit . Dad loves The Shield. Awesome match. Isolation of Cena was brilliant. The Shield have those oldschool Freebird tactics mixed with the attitude of Evolution. Throw in a bit of poetic chaos and you have the most intriguing entity in ages. I had a sick feeling the entire match that the ALLSTARS would win, especially when Cena hit the AA on Ambrose during the finishing sequnce. Luckily, Reings speared the SHIT out of Ryback (Dad was still marking over the spear on Sheamus through the barricade until I reminded him that we've seen it like 4 times in the last 2 months) and Rollins got the pin on Ryback. LEGIT. ****

Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston - Dad was the most entertaining part of this match with gems like "I really hope they don't try to push this guy (Kofi) into someone big," "I'd kill to have hair like that (Dolph)," and "I wish Triple H would come back." Mom loves Dolph too. Solid match given the time. Tons of bumping. Monkey flip was GOAT. **

Divas - Everyone took a shower/piss/snack break.

Rock vs CM Punk - Again, this is where the casual point of view was interesting. Both parents weren't sure how Punk could be seen to be in the same league as Rock. Solid match, much better than their first encounter imo. False finish with Punk kicking out of The People's Elbow actually had me fooled. Definitely thought that was the end. Glad it wasn't. Predictable finish regardless. Both parents were legit clapping when Rock pinned Punk. ***1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I like the new title. It isn't traditional, more of a modern title but I can live with it. Rock plates at the side MUST go though. It also looks very big, even on Rock. On smaller guys it's going to look huge. I would have preferred something a little more on the traditional side but this smokes the spinner by a considerable margin. Over time I think I'll grow to like it even more.

EDIT - MOTY list so far:

Shield vs. Cena/Ryback/Seamus - ****1/4
Smackdown Chamber - ****1/4
Shield vs. Jericho/Ryback/Seamus - ****

That's all I can remember for now.

It's better than the spinner, not that that's saying much. Not quite the Winged Eagle, not that any belt is.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Imagine when they release the "Rock vs Cena : Twice in a Lifetime" DVD .

Wrestlemania season doesn't feel like Wrestlemania season for a few reasons ; for one, they have this big long build and they are opting to do NOTHING with it, it honestly seems like the WWE Universe revolves around whenever Rock is going to show up. They're doing RAW from Texas next week so the conclusion to the show should be clear as day ; Punk does some cheating shenanigans that's about to get him the win when the referee is down and the lights go out... The lights go back on and it's Undertaker who costs Punk the match. Why would he do this ? It's WWE, they'll give us some half assed explanation that makes no sense .

Trips is coming to save his father in law next week and that's pretty much a lock at this point. NOBODY wants to see it and I strongly encourage the fans to let their voices be heard during this segment, screaming "WE WANT TAKER" or some shit like that. They obviously won't because these are the same people who want to see Rock-Cena II but whatever. It makes me depressed that a feud between two of my all time favorites is so fucking unnecessary because if I knew we weren't getting BROCK-HHH II I'd actually be excited for Game's return .

Punk's going to face The Undertaker in the Co-Main Event that will probably be MOTN if not Brock-HHH. I just don't give a fuck about the build whatsoever because it's going to be ridiculously predictable and a bunch of bullshit. When the MATCH comes I'll care, same with BROCK-GAME, but I could care less about this shitty build.

Rock isn't going to be there for 3 of the last 6 RAWS before Wrestlemania. Granted, this is a very good thing for me because I don't have to see or hear him, but what the fuck is Cena going to do for those three RAWS that Rock's going to miss ? Talk to himself in the middle of the ring ? Talk to The Rock Via Satellite ? This build is going to be SO FUCKING BAD, you know it's sad when JACK SWAGGER is one of the things I love about this company the most ATM. His new gimmick is awesome, ZEB is awesome, and people shouldn't trash Swagger for being in the WM ME scene because honestly it's like the 5th biggest match on the card at best.

STARZ 4 WRASSLIN' - MAN EE YA XXVI ? (I have to ask AGAIN ?)

"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

It seriously makes watching a PPV ten times better than it has any right to be. No joke. So great.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The new belt is better than the spinner, but not by much. It really doesn't look like much effort has gone into the design. Someone posted a custom design in another thread that looked much snazzier.

Great post Lady Killer, your parents seem damn cool! And interesting observation about how 'casuals' view Punk against a guy like The Rock.
