Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Took my time this weekend and watched all of the Punk's reign as the WWE Champ matches:
vs Del Rio- SS 2011 ***1/2- A well worked match with an incredibly satisfying Punk victory that saw him leaping into the MSG crowd in a feel good moment for all involved
vs Del Rio vs Miz- TLC 2011 ****- Fun Match here, to close a good 2011 for the WWE.
vs Ziggler- RR 2012 ***- A very entertaining match, but Laurinatis ruined it with his interventions. For about 5 minutes, we got exactly what we expected, with amazing wrestling from two amazing performances.
Elimination Chamber 2012- ***1/4- Nothing special here, basic EC match.
vs Chris Jericho- WM 28 ****3/4- Brilliant match, Punk's best match after the one with Cena from MITB and Bryan from OTL. Great, great match-up here.
vs Chris Jericho- ER 2012 ****- A very good street fight and the best way to end the feud. It is also notably that the two did a bit too much chain wrestling, which, while well-executed, somewhat took away from the blood feud that they were supposed to be engaged in.
vs Daniel Bryan- OTl 2012 *****- Nothing to say here, only brilliant. I believe, if given just a couple minutes more, the two could have constructed the match of the decade.
vs Bryan vs Kane NWO 2012 ***- Not a fan of this one. It could have been much better without Kane. I'm saying that the red Monster was bad here, he was very good, but a Punk/Bryan match would have been better,
vs Bryan- MITB 2012 ****- Every single element-from technical wrestling to brawling to brutality-was brought together into one incredible package. A forgotten clasic of 2012.
vs Cena vs Big Show- Summerslam 2012 **3/4- Big Show destroyed this one. Awful match compared tot he other ones.
vs Cena NOC 2012- ****1/4- Now this match is so many things. It’s emotional, it’s entertaining, and quite frankly, it’s exhausting. But one thing it is not is disappointing. For 26 minutes, John Cena and CM Punk tore the freaking house down
