Yeah, Drew came back from being "fired" and was given back the Championship by decree of Vince.

Have to relive the match. (I'd be able to if I owned the Best of High Flyers set ahhhhhhh) Best Kofi Kingston match for me is vs Drew McIntyre from Fatal Four Way. Drew is a magical man. List of Kofi matches I find to be good I think I could only count with one hand at this rate. Singles matches that is. Luckily, he's had some good tags thanks to Bourne + opponents.

Erm in order to keep this fairly relevant, Miz/Danielson is Miz' best match but he's in no way a passenger in the match and puts in arguably his best performance in controlling the pace and making an engaging and focused control segment which doesn't drag. Seriously watch a current WWE match for the most part and marvel at how much better Miz was controlling the middle that night than what we get atm.
Facts aren't meant to be catchy.

Miz vs Cesaro from EC curried favor from me. Wouldn't call it a control segment for Miz during that one. Only he got his chance to actually work on Cesaro's knee which was a different route than the norm of a general WWE match these days.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I liked the dual limbwork and Cesaro's lack of knee pads proving to be a weakness was a nice way to ease into the Miz comeback. They could have a very good match if they were afforded good time and a chance to map out a clear match rather than having to work against the clock and have a rushed finish.

Cesaro needs to obliterate Miz' face and move on to some better workers now though. Have him hold the title until near June time and then have him drop it before winning MITB. He's by far the most impressive guy in the midcard and should be their pet project to build and legitimise by next year.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rushed time or not, it was arguably the biggest surprise of the year for me. Didn't expect the match to be worked smart going in. Their first match was so generic I thought nothing come the rematch. Outside of the "ok, Cesaro match. Cool b/c he's terrific. Just win please."

Fingers crossed. Company is clearly high on him, only I wonder if he'll drop the championship soon and WWE will proceed to push him following. I'm hoping for a Miz (ironic bit) type deal. Either win MITB as US champ or lose said championship prior to the immediate MITB win. All about keeping him credible. Gunning for the WM appearance & win.

Are you talking about Cesaro? Because if I recall correctly, didn't he lose it by submission to MOZ last week? Or was it a non-title match? Yeah, that's how unmemorable Raw is now!

And the talk of LESNAR/CENA a few pages ago has made me go and watch it once more. Found it in good quality so it should be fun.

Non-title match. Way to advance things in their program to keep another match open.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watch Lesnar-Cena. It's one of the greatest matches in WWE history and I'm seriously leaning towards it being either man's best match (it's definitely BROCK's best with MITB 2011 being Cena's only competition). While nobody may come close to Taker in terms of having the most MOTY's in WWF/WWE history, Cena may get 5 or 6 by the time his career is over. He already has 3 in my book.

BTW, that Tag Team Turmoil match from NOC 10 is fuckin BOSS due to the end segment which features Bourne/Henry against Mcintyre/Rhodes. Now doesn't THAT sound awesome ? Well, as far as turmoil matches go it's pretty AWESOME.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

As far as gimmick matches go, Tag Team Turmoil is one of my least favourites.

As for the Cesaro/Miz match up on Raw, that's another travesty of WWE programming recently. Not that the Miz won, but how many times have we seen the champions lose only to find out it's 'non-title'? Christ, Barrett has lost more times than he's won since becoming champ.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I love WWE's policy with mid-card heel champions.

They lose 99% of their TV matches only to, by some miracle, retain the title at the PPV (if they even get a PPV match). And how often are there actual title defenses? Well, US Title matches haven't been as extremely rare as the IC Title matches, but still...

... god damn, reminds me that they scrapped the IC Cup idea. Fuck 'em.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If I were part of WWE Creative I'd be having a hard time doing anything with the IC belt when someone like Barrett is holding it .

WM 7 has been pretty awesome thus far. Watched every match up to this point (about to watch match 9), so no -1 points on the Cal Scale or anything. Some 0 points, but no DUD matches. On the CAL SCALE its nearly double the current highest rated WM event.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WM 7 is one of the best Mania's ever. It has a Tenryu match on it. Got to be GOAT level.
