Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WrestleMania X-Seven has two 4-star matches. XIX has two, with Hunter/T coming very close and Lesnar/Angle too. Problem with Lesnar/Angle is that it just doesn't feel like a WRESTLEMANIA main event.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^Agreed. Lesnar/Angle is a great wrestling match but it doesn't feel like it should be the main event. Thing is, obviously they want a championship match headlining the show and Booker/Triple H doesn't have a happy outcome so they had to go with Brock/Angle.

Obviously if I had my way it'd end with Rock beating Austin Hell, end it was Hogan beating Vince and I'd be happy.

HBK/Jericho - ****3/4
Booker T/Triple H - ***3/4
Hogan/Vince - ***/12
Rock/Austin - ****1/2
Angle/Brock - ****1/4

Also, I think the reason why I love Wrestlemania 28 so much already is because I think it delivered in different ways. Really, there was three main events and each one delivered something different that combined together made for a complete event that felt satisfying.

Undertaker/Triple H in the cell delivered a brutal war. It gave us the physicality we all enjoy.
CM Punk/Jericho gave us the best pure wrestling match of the night.
The Rock/Cena gave us the spectacle that the main event of Wrestlemania needs to be. And its capped off with the right person winning to the biggest victory pop I've ever seen.

So we get brutal physicality, pure wrestling, and Wrestlemania spectacle with a happy ending. Hell, you can even say the HIAC match was pure spectacle too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Thought only Undertaker/Trips delivered as it should have. Rock/Cena was disappointing.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Punk and Jericho did well too. But what were you expecting from The Rock and John Cena, to have been disappointed?

I thought it was as good as it could've been. Rock was good considering he hadn't had a singles match in 9 years, although there were one or two moments where he looked tired. Cena did well for his part too.

My main issues with the match are Rock's horrendous Sharpshooter, and Cena's crappy STFU, because it was clear as day to anyone watching that he was putting zero effort into the move. It didn't look like he was doing nay damage at all. Cena was basically just laying on Rock's back and Rock was laying on his stomach. There needs to be a bit of realism and it was just poor execution.

But, I actually enjoyed the musical performances - Machine Gun Kelly pretty much getting booed off stage after his little pro-Cena speech was hilarious. The staredown was good, and reminiscent of Hogan/Rock 10 years ago. Both men overpowering each other at the beginning was great too, again just like Hogan/Rock.

The ending is such a feel-good moment too. Cena gets too cocky and wants to mock Rock with a People's Elbow, so he's not focusing on the important task for a few moments. Rock is smart and takes advantage for the win. When the camera cuts to the stadium going completely insane after the pin it gives me goosebumps.

Overall, cut the match down by a few minutes and sort out the Sharpshooter/STFU, and I can't complain

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The match started off great. It made me feel like it was going to be something special but after the first 2-3 mins, it went downhill. The bulk of the match was boring. Too many terribad restholds, and I didn't think the finisherfest was done that well either. And I didn't really like the ending either, mostly b/c it didn't make any sense with regards to Cena's character, but w/e. They never should've went 31 mins.

A 15-20 minute match with them throwing bombs at each other until Cena eventually makes a sensible mistake would've served me better.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rock/Cena was shit. I'd honestly rather watch Kane/Orton from the same show instead. Hell, I genuinely liked Kane/Orton more and I *think* I rated them the same (**3/4). Rock/Cena had the better atmosphere (which I think is overrated. Being there was probably awesome, but it came across really bad on TV aside from 3 or 4 moments), Kane/Orton had the better match.

Still, overall I enjoyed WM 28 a ton. HIAC was epic, Jericho/Punk was epic, Kane/Orton was solid and beyond my expectations lol, and uhhh... well nothing else stood out in the slightest, but it was still a massive step up from WM 27 which had one match .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've said it for a while. I think The Rock vs. John Cena would've benefited going about 10 minutes less than what it actually did. Instead of 30 minutes, you get 20 minutes which limits the rest holds we would've seen in the match. The match for the most part is dull in the middle and really brings down the rating. Considering all the hype it got, it didn't live up to expectations IMO. It was a decent/good match with a great atmosphere, but it wasn't great.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I enjoyed the beginning and the end but the middle dragged a lot, the match should have been cut to about the 20minute mark which would have meant a much more intensive match

The match was never going to live up to the expectations put onto, that was the danger of planning it and building it for a full year, the end product was never going to be as good as fans had anticipated.

I still rate it as ***3/4 to **** stars just for the feeling it gave me at the conclusion, haven't been that invested and genuinely happy about an outcome of a match for a very long time
