Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm not understanding this nitpicking with 'selling' from Cena. The countout spot was 100% believable. Just because he gets up and runs in the ring on the 9 count doesn't mean he isn't selling. It means he hears the damn count so he musters up all he had left and sprinted under the ropes. Not like he got up right after that and started hittin clotheslines or somethin. I thought the match was over for sure once the ref hit 8.

Coulda swore I read somewhere that he didn't sell the piledriver either. In response, he was on the mat for a decent bit considering he took two nearfalls and was laid out for the elbow drop. I honestly don't remember too many bits of no selling, maybe the opposite actually. He climbed the ropes so damn slow to try to hit the leg drop.

I can actually see why people wouldn't dig this match from the structure to the execution, and even Cena's selling. I was really into that last portion of the match from the time they did the wrestling exchanges to the finish.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I guess I just didn't like it for the predictable ending, the no selling and the slow start. Not that I have anything against slow starts as a lot of the best matches of all time have slow starts but I don't know, I just think people are blinkered at times by the whole false finishing. It was an okay match, nothing more, nothing less in my view.

Did mark for the Piledriver though.

Not sure how a Cena Hurricarana to AA is a predictable finish. Thought it was the best finish they could really play out, since they had played out every other move in their arsenals. Maybe you mean a predictable winner? But I don't think that should take away from a match.

Predictable winner, predictable the way Cena would no sell everything and just jump right into his finishing manoeuvre. It's the same old shit and it's pathetic. Sadly, we'll get that at Wrestlemania too no doubt, Cena no selling anything only to put Rock into the AA, smile, get the win, lift the belt, Michael Cole and Jerry the Cunt saying how Cena has overcome the odds once more, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

But Cena doesn't feel pain, he just gets gassed out slowly during a match, gains a second wind and wins the match. If you look at it from a kayfabe POV. No need to sell.

The latter would be on the basis that the Rock somehow becomes Brock Lesnar overnight. I do agree they need to die away with the underdog stuff. Hes bigger than most of the roster.

Yeah, that's something I was thinking about while watching last night. Like why doesn't Cena just overpower this guy?... Oh that's right, he has to be the babyface underdog. It'd be a nice refreshing change to see Cena on the offensive, controlling his opponent for a while.

But don't you see how pathetic that is?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

***3/4 for Cena/Punk. Great match, but behind the SHIELD tag from last week for TV MOTY... and then behind the SHIELD tag from EC for MOTY. Re-watched both as well as the EC match and EC rating went down to ***3/4 while tag went to **** and the raw one went from ***1/2 to ***3/4.

Can someone give me the dates for Punk/Jericho and Bryan/Jericho Raw matches please?
