Speaking of Divas, it's been like 3 weeks since they haven't been on TV. I can never understand how RAW is 3 hours and still no time for Divas.

Mania is literally a one match show this year. I get that there's still almost 2 moths to go but considering that almost 2 months have gone in the year and we're still in the same position we were in at the start of the year, this Mania is just shaping up to be lackluster.
Looks like they're making up for the fact that Lesnar and Rock aren't going to be appearing every RAW before WM. For the past 3 years the three biggest matches on the card were confirmed a week after the EC.

It seems to be typical booking of Ziggler, he gains some momentum and then loses it. He also went over Orton clean at Survivor Series the PPV prior to TLC, and now he's tapped out to Del Rio like 3 times in 2 weeks, what a way to build up your future World Champion...

When I watched that match with 5 other people in the room at the time, many laughs were had. Didn't see that coming at all, but it was so funny to witness.

Extreme Rules is a far better show then WM 28.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Dolph is a strange case because he works like a babyface with his ability to take a beatdown and bump all around the place, but his natural charisma just suggests that he's, well.... For the lack of a better term, a "DICK". He's one of the up and coming talents that just screams "STAR", and when it comes to untapped potential I'd put him right there with D-Bry, which is strange because instead of pushing guys like D-Bry and Ziggler they push Del Rio ? Okay ? ... I'm honestly like 90 percent sure that Ziggler walks out of Wrestlemania as the WHC though, so that should be something. I wanna see him in the WWE title picture with the big boys by the end of the year though.

I have Extreme Rules 2012 ranked above like 25 Wrestlemanias. It's seriously one of the greatest PPVs ever.

WWE Elimination Chamber 2013 - John Cena, Sheamus & Ryback vs. The Shield

The finishing sequence of that match was phenomenal. The timing by all of the guys involved with it was absolutely perfect. Cena hit his finisher moments before Reigns hit that spear on Ryback and Cena wasn't able to break up the pinfall. The announcers reiterated JBLís point that The Shield is an awesome team that works so well together to accomplish their goals. That was the perfect way to book the match. Itís a big win for The Shield because they beat three top guys in a decisive manner with a clean finish. The two Heat segments leading to the hit tags was done phenomenally too. ****1/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Kane/Orton : *** 1/4
Bryan/Sheamus : **** 1/4
Jericho/Punk : ****
BROCK/Cena : ***** (MOTY)

All that matters from the show. Arguably the best non big four PPV ever.

A lot of his offense comes across as babyface as well, the dropkicks, the fameasser signature, the super kick, these moves I feel the crowd could really get behind if he was a face. Plus he's been getting face reactions in his matches for a long time, he plays the perfect underdog. Agreed on Ziggler, nice to see someone else appreciate his talents, he's been getting a lot of hate on this forum atm..

And Del Rio's being pushed for the Mexican market, as Mysterio's on his last legs and Sin Cara's a underwhelming letdown, and they need a top face to represent there ever growing Latino market. Del Rio's been more interesting as a face but I still don't really care for him, would much rather see Ziggler in his position.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think the only thing that rivals ER as best non-big 4 PPV ever is Vengeace 2003 -

Eddie/Benoit - ****
WGTT/ReyKidman - *** 1/2
Taker/Cena - ****
Show/Lesnar/Angle - **** 1/2

As well as Gowen/Vince being FUN (albeit being a few minutes too long), a kinda fun bar room brawl, a harmless Noble/Gunn match and a STUPID Sable/Steph match.
