Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched a few Punk matches in his second WWE title reign, pretty impressed.

vs. Jericho at Extreme Rules - ****1/4
vs. Jericho at Wrestlemania - ****
vs. Alberto Del Rio at Survivor Series - ****
vs. Miz vs. Alberto Del Rio at TLC - ****
vs. Henry I at RAW - ***1/2
vs. Ziggler at Royal Rumble - ***1/2

There's probably a few RAW & SD matches he's been involved in but so far it's been a pretty good reign. I love the Surivor Series match, ADR is an excellent worker imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Looking forward to the Punk DVD this year. He's been doing so well since the famous promo last year.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wrestling wise, Punk's reign has been pretty damn good, but some of his feuds have been fairly dull. Ziggler feud didn't really have anything to it besides the Big Johnny stuff. Del Rio feud had... nothing going for it tbh lol. Jericho feud has had its ups and downs, but I've enjoyed it for the most part. Wish he'd done something with Henry on PPV rather than just TV. Henry needs to be in the title scene again, and I'd MUCH prefer him to be Sheamus' next opponent rather than Del Rio which appears to be where they are going next.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The thing is the creative determine the booking, wrestlers can't really affect a storyline as they are told what to do. Prime example was Edge/Taker, went on for months, stale as fuck but their matches kept the feud going.

There is a lot of Punk hate right now but I reckon he's number 2 behind Cena right now. He can cut promos better than anyone else, let him loose and he will show anyone up. He even turned himself face and I reckon if creative did decide to turn him heel he'd probably get cheers. He deserves to keep the title till Summerslam at least, make the title credible right now and keep feuds fresh.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Have they released the matches on the falls count anywhere set yet?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm hoping the Punk/Bryan match means the Punk/Jericho feud is over. Because bar the Mania match and small parts of the Street Fight it was a dogshit feud. 'Best in the World' v 'Best in the World' somehow became "U IZ ON PATH TO ALCOHOLISM" "NO I DRINKZ NUTTIN I LIKE FISH N CHIPS." WWE booking has blown so any feuds up this year and it's only May. They have two great things to work with:

1) Star power
2) Ring Work

You'd think with everything going on they could write even a 'decent' story and produce really good feuds. I wonder how much creative control is given to wrestlers. IIRC the Jericho/Michaels stuff of 2008 was largely put together by Chris and Shawn themselves. Jericho's been.....REALLY disappointing since returning, but he and Punk could have probably put something together that's better than that alcohol bullshit.

Lesnar should have beat Cena. Cena should have been stretchered out with Lesnar licking Cena's blood off of his gloves. It was a great match and the crowd actually started backing Cena, but then out comes the 'Cena' stuff they don't like and he pulls a win out of nowhere. It wasn't done HORRIBLY and props to them for not making it stupid (Raw the next night is a *biiit* of a different story. A bit.), but God they could have had a great match with a great finish. If Cena's going to have a match with Ace then a good kick-start to it would have been 'Cena you lost to Rock, you lost to Tensai, you lost to Lesnar, you've clearly lost your touch: you're losing to BIG JOHNEH!!!!!!' I'd LOVE for him to lose that and only start winning again once he faces Rock a second time to redeem him Mania loss and get himself back on track.


Of course part of me is really pissed Mark Henry hasn't een used as much considering he's still fucking great, but Goddamn, these feuds should write themselves.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have really enjoyed the Punk/Jericho matches but I agree the storyline has been boring at times.

As for Punk's title reign I think it's been one of the better title reigns in years. I dont understand all the hate. Get use to it though because I dont think they are taking the belt off Punk for another 3-4 months and it wouldnt shock me if he again went into Mania next year as champ.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've liked his reign, but he feels so second-rate to the 'Big Stars'. When was the last time he main evented a PPV, or even an episode of Raw? It just makes the Title feel kind of unimportant.

I think for some they feel he has not really had any captivating feuds or storylines yet. I personally enjoyed the Jericho feud for the most part. I got to see both of their matches live and both are great imo. Punk's had a strong run in the ring with the belt but overall I agree his angles haven't been that hot.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched Cena/Brock for the first time. Fucking awesome. I'd put HHH/Taker above it as far as MOTY goes, but damn it was awesome. Goes to show what a bit of blood can do for a match. Not that it wouldn't have been great without the blood but that was fucking sick. Lesnar looked like a complete badass/monster and Cena was fantastic as well. ****-****1/4 on first viewing. I'll probably do a little write up when I re-watch it, along with Sheamus/Bryan and Jericho/Punk.
