Outside of the WWE title match (which sometimes isn't even the case), most of the matches involve random mid-carders battling for no reason, none of the matches have a reason behind them and most of them are just on the card to fill up spaces lol. Starting from Mania 27 at the very very least . I'll give you from Mania X7 up until about 23/24/25. Around there is when WWE very obviously stopped caring about...well...everything really. I guess I just found your statement a bit curious, that's all. Of all the things to say about modern day WWE, those 3 things most certainly don't spring to mind. Quite the opposite in fact.
I mean, most matches on earlier Wrestlemanias seemed like exhibitions between two mid-carders outside of the main events. Again, this is probably because I wasn't alive at the time but those matches on the earlier Wrestlemanias seemed to have no build up at all. They were just thrown together to give the fans something to watch until you got to Hogan, Savage, Warrior, Andre, or whoever was involved in the main event matches that year. At least the mid-card matches now a days have a reason to happen, regardless of what that reason is. I agree that the build up is awful for some matches but at least they have a reason to be having a match. They aren't just throwing matches like Kofi Kingston vs Drew McIntyre or Ted Dibiase vs Primo onto the card just to give us something to watch until we get to the matches involving Cena, Rock, Orton, Punk, Jericho, etc.

I'd have his match with Flair second. His best singles match imo, but that wargames match is definitely his number one overall.

As for the WM talk, I don't think its fair to say the older ones didn't exactly have build up or were done for no reason or anything. You just kinda had to be watching at the time because they weren't really big on video packages to hype the feuds and matches for anything other than main events . So just watching the actual event doesn't give you an idea of what the hell was going on half the time .

I wasn't alive either and outside of the big matches everybody talks about, I haven't seen a lot of stuff from a lot of Manias pre 14/15. I don't know. I don't think enough matches have a reason to happen anymore. I mean, it actually looks like we're set to get Orton/Kane. Why? Because Kane randomly attacked him on SD this week. Seems to be all they're capable of these days unfortunately. Everything, I'd go so far as to say even the WHC match, on this years card is complete filler outside Rock/Cena, HHH/Taker and to a lesser extent Jericho/Punk. They don't even fucking try anymore. I guess I just don't see the difference between random mid carder A vs. random mid carder B in 2012 and 15 years ago.

They're not doing a bad job with Bryan/Sheamus, imo. Obviously it's not the caliber of the other 3 but still.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Got a quick question for you guys. I just picked up The Epic Journey of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on Blu-ray. Absolutely loved the documentary. May watch it again later. Anyway, I started digging into the matches and noticed that I'm missing a match on Disc 1. On the inside of the case, it lists Triple H vs. The Rock from May of 1998, but it's not on the menu on my disc. Has anybody else had this problem or know why this is? Could just be a misprint.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^ Had the same problem. I don't know what happened there.

I just picked up the recent Rock DVD today and only watched the documentary, but it's really good and detailed when talking about his time in WWE, his movie career, and I liked how they sort of hyped up the Rock/Cena match at Wrestlemania towards the end. Haven't watch the matches yet, but so far I like the match listings even though I was sort of disappointed with the Austin/Rock Wrestlemania XIX match not being on the list. Just want to know what you guys thought of it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I might be the only one who is not that pumped for Rock/Cena, I mean I like Rock and will be rooting for him to beat Cena but Im not as excited for this match as most are...Im way more excited for Punk/Jericho and Taker/HHH HiaC....Punk/Jericho could steal the damn show, that could be a classic...I want Bryan to retain V Sheamus but I bet Sheamus wins....on paper this Mania is looking really good...agreed though during Orton/Kane I will take a piss break, who gives a shit?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not gonna lie: if Cena v Rock gets cancelled...I almost won't give a shit. I really don't like those two enough to care about it. Hell, the whole Mania card so far isn't *that* up my alley.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rock Vs Cena does nothing for me either. I don't like either guy, and the feud has been absolutely utterly dogshit. Its been the EXACT same stuff for an entire year. Wah wah wah Rock is never here. Blah blah blah lady parts.
