Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Brock Lesnar vs John Cena from Extreme Rules is probably the best WWF/WWE match since the GOAT HIAC with Undertaker and HBK. Perhaps the most captivating match in WWF/WWE history which is crazy to say since it's less than a single year old. Off the top of my head I can name three matches that compete with it in terms of being the best match since the GOAT ; Cena vs Punk (MITB 11), and a undisclosed Wrestlemania match. I'd have it REALLY high up there and quite honestly if it ages well with me it could fall into that upper echelon , the WWF/WWE top 3-5ish. Of course in order for me to place something that high I need to see it a bajillion times .

Cena/Brock is perfect except for the winner. Stupid decision that renders me unable to give it the full 5. In every other instance however, it's pretty much flawless.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Missed the Cena/Orton discussion but I just want to add:

I don't think I've ever been prouder of an audience than when they completely shunned the "monumental staredown" at the Rumble. It was the perfect response to forced chemistry and bullshit booking.

Orton and Cena had zero chemistry outside of scripted moments (like Orton attacking Cena's dad). It's one of my pet peeves to watch two talents be forced together by management in a vein attempt to create something special. I was so thrilled when it bombed.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Good luck CAL. Wrestlemania VI is the worst bar for like 2 matches out of 14 .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Anyone have any opinions on HBK/Angle/Cena at Taboo Tuesday for the WWE Championship? It reminded me of WM20's Triple Threat and it's vastly underrated for such a good match it was. Maybe even MOTY for 2005.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't think it even comes close to MOTY for 05, but that says so much about the quality of matches 05 gave us. Its good, around ***1/2 on last watch.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

*** for the Taboo Tuesday triple threat. Good but NOWHERE near MOTY for 05.

That's Batista/Triple H at Vengeance *****

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cena-Brock was right up there with my favourite match of 2012, along with Undertaker-HHH. To this day, I can't decide which I like more but both are ****1/2 matches for me. Lesnar-Cena was just so different and both men made it look legit. The only problem with the match? The winner.

I'll be posting them on my blog starting 11th March, one every day, so it ends up with WM 28 review going online on the day of WM 29, then WM 29 review getting written and posted the next day .
