Great match but it could have been better.

People Power Battle Royal - **
Kofi/Truth vs. ZigSwag - ***
Layla vs. Beth Phoenix - **
Fatal Four Way - ****
Brodus vs. The Miz - Went to the toilet
Cody vs. Christian - *** -DAT MOONSAULT~!
CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan - ****3/4 - MOTY, IMO. Marked like a bitch at the "Ive got till 5" but Booker and King didn't fucking understand - "He's still got a smile on his face" SMH
Goldberg vs. Jobber #934 - DUD
Cena vs. Big Johnny - ***1/2 - Even though it was predictable as hell and it wasn't a great wrestling match, it was so much fucking fun to watch. Johnny sells better than the rest of the roster.

Great PPV, best of the year IMO, just slightly outweighs Wrestlemania. It felt like a more complete show, despite the lack of build up and the four unannounced matches. It was something about this show that reminded me why I am a wrestling fan. Amazing show, one of the best shows I've seen in a long time - definitely the best I've seen since MITB. Anybody who hasn't caught this show yet, go fucking see it.

Well to me Taker/HHH isn't really that good of a match. It was a great spectacle of a match, but for me it didn't have the in-ring work to match. The whole thing felt to much like a big angle rather than a wrestling match. Both Bryan matches were far superior in that regard which is what I really look for in a match, as well as storytelling. Bryan/Punk and Bryan/Sheamus had story telling in spades and the in ring work to match it. I thoroughly enjoyed the HIAC though don't get me wrong, but it wouldn't be in my top 20 of the year. I don't even know how to rate it tbh. Lesnar/Cena was awesome though, but I find that hard to rate too, probably around the **** area.

Watched Punk/Bryan again. Loved it even more. I'm nudging it to 5 stars. There was nothing bad about the match, and it put it's emphasis on the wrestling while still telling a (basic) good story. The match had everything besides good build, but honestly the good build only keeps it from being in the upper echelon of 5 star matches. This might be the lowest 5 star match I have, but it's everything I want to see in a wrestling match and then some.

And my MOTY list is now:

1) Punk vs. Bryan OTL- *****
2) Punk vs. Jericho WM28- ****1/2
3) Sheamus vs. Bryan ER- ****
4) Punk vs. Jericho ER- ****
5) Punk vs. Henry Raw 4/2/12- ****
6) Undertaker vs. HHH WM28- ****
7) Orton vs. Sheamus vs. Jericho vs. Del Rio OTL- ***3/4 (down on second viewing)
8) Punk vs. Ziggler RR- ***3/4
9) Lesnar vs. Cena ER- ***3/4
10) Raw EC 2012- ***3/4

A few things:
-I'd say Punk vs. Bryan is a better version of Punk vs. Jericho from Mania, albeit with no build
-Punk/Henry being in my top 5 and at the rating it is isn't down to ring work, but rather the amazing psychology in the match and great storytelling. Maybe Henry's best match of his career. It's above Taker/HHH by a hair really, and if I put more weight in storytelling Taker/HHH would be above it.

Also... how many top 10 matches each superstar has:

Punk- 6 (1 EC)
Jericho- 4 (1 EC)
Bryan- 2
Sheamus- 2
Ziggler- 2 (1 EC)
Henry- 1
Orton- 1
Del Rio- 1
Cena- 1
Lesnar- 1
Miz- 1 (EC)
Kingston- 1 (EC)
Truth- 1 (EC)
Undertaker- 1
HHH- 1

Top WWE Matches so far:

1. Undertaker Vs HHH WM - ****3/4
2. Jericho Vs Punk WM - ****1/2
3. Bryan Vs Punk OLT - ****1/2
4. Bryan Vs Sheamus ER - ****1/2
5. Lesnar Vs Cena ER - ****
6. Henry Vs Punk I Raw - ***3/4

Uhhh, not sure after that. Nothing else has reached the ***3/4 rating for me, and everything under it hasn't stuck in my memory too well lol. Punk/Henry III on Raw is close at ***1/2, as is... the first Bryan/Punk match from Raw I think it was, then their SD match? I forget which is which lol.

Just watched Bryan/Punk from last night, absolutely great match, it was exactly what Punk/Jericho at Mania should have been. Looking forward to seeing them attempt to top this next month. My top 5 WWE MOTY so far;

Punk v Bryan - OTL - ****3/4
Bryan v Sheamus - Extreme Rules - ****1/2
Undertaker v HHH - Wrestlemania - ****1/2
Brock v Cena - Extreme Rules - ****1/2
Punk v Jericho - Extreme Rules - ****1/4

I enjoyed Rock/Cena almost as much as Jericho/Punk but for very different reasons
