Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Bryan/Kane - ***1/2

Re-watching the event again, since I wasn't paying much attention earlier (had MONEY~! on my mind lol). Started with the triple threat. Really good match, though where the fuck did Bryan disappear to a couple of times? He just seemed to vanish completely, yet nothing major happened to him to keep him away for that length of time. Maybe he was doing the old heel thing of staying out of the way, but its not like the announcers mentioned it, or the cameras focused in on him or anything, so fuck knows. Bit with Bryan kicking the shit out of both Kane and Punk all the while screaming YES! was awesome. Crowd wanted to have his babies too. Heard that WWE were considering putting the belt on him and eventually decided to keep it with Punk literally hours before the match. Can see Bryan winning it within the next couple of months easy.

Sheamus/Ziggler - ****

Ziggler/Dolph was still great on second watch. Ziggler was great, duh. Callback to WM spot was great. Mike mentioned about Ziggler's stalling, and yeah, he's great at it. I talked a lot about it last year after I went to a Raw House Show. Guy was incredible at stalling and shit and was so fucking entertaining with it. Wish he had the chance to do it more often on TV. Loved his headstand while applying a headlock/sleeper on Sheamus. Adds leverage and whatnot to the hold, and shows Ziggler for who/what he is; a show off. Ziggler's character as the show off has moments of greatness, but overall kinda lacks something. If only he could find that little bit extra, he'd really be awesome. Sheamus wasn't exactly a slouch either. He isn't the greatest worker or anything, but against good opponents he holds his own just fine. Some sloppy moments here and there but I felt they recovered well with Sheamus usually just slugging away at Ziggler so they can transition back into whatever spot they were meant to do. That elbow shot right at the start when Ziggler has a waist lock on him looks BRUTAL lol. Thought he legit decked him with that one. Definitely MOTN for me (unless I end up loving Christian/Cody more on a re-watch lol, doubt I'll like it more than this or the triple threat though). Keep pushing Ziggler! If Del Rio comes back for a title match and Ziggler gets shoved back down the card doing fuck all I'm gonna be pissed.

Christian/Cody - ***3/4

So this was pretty great. Christian having his arm worked on = awesomeness. Nothing will compare to his performance against Swagger on ECW back in 09, but its still really good here. Cody looked great with his offence targeting the arm and countering a ton of Christian's moves, and kicking out of the Killswitch with no waiting period was pretty big, though Christian has stopped using it as his main finisher since he returned so its not as huge as it could have been imo. Finishing stretch was really good, Christian's spear looks great (better than Edge's running hug lol) and would be a better finisher than his horrible attempt at a Frog Splash lol. Nice to see Christian seemingly back into his grove as a great babyface worker. While his character might be able to go further as a heel (not the whining fuck he was during the Orton feud), his work rate and matches are far FAR better with him as a babyface. Looking forward to the rest of his IC title reign. Kinda expecting Cody to get a rematch at some point, but after that, no idea who he'll face next. Based on their superstars match recently (and matches back in 2010), I'd LOVE McIntyre to finally get a push and a nice feud over the belt.

Overall, even if I couldn't be arsed watching anything else, this was a good event from what I saw. People were creaming over Slammiversay last week, well this was better imo. A **** match, ***3/4 match and a ***1/2 match compared to a ***3/4 (Aries/Joe) match, ***1/2 (Tag titles) match and a *** (Parks/Bully) match means for me this was a better event .

Some of the matches are clipped, though. There I was ready and waiting to finally watch TLC III, and it was just a highlight package, with Benoit pointedly edited out. I watched it the other day though. PHENOMENAL. Spotz!~

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Sheamus/Ziggler - ***1/4
Santino/Ricardo - DUD
Christian/Cody - ***1/2
4-way Tag - **3/4
Layla/Beth - *1/2
Sin Cara/Hunico - *1/4
Triple Threat - ***1/2
Ryback/Jobbers - DUD
Cena/Show - lol didn't watch

Didn't go as high as most of you for a lot of it. Nothing stood out as a must-see, just a few good matches surrounded by mediocrity and shit. I hate Ryback.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

CM Punk hit a snag in the road at OTL 2011 when he jobbed to the Big Show & Kane in a pointless tag match. Ever since then, here has been his PPV matches :

CP 11 vs Rey Mysterio : ****
MITB 11 vs John Cena : *****
SS 11 vs John Cena : **** 1/2
NOC 11 vs HHH : ****
HIAC 11 vs John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio : *** 3/4
Ven 11 w/ HHH vs Awesome Truth : *** 1/2
SS 11 vs Alberto Del Rio : ****
TLC 11 vs Miz vs Del Rio : ****
RR 12 vs Dolph Ziggler : *** 3/4
EC 12 RAW Elimination Chamber : *** 1/2
WM XXVIII vs Chris Jericho : **** 1/2
ER 12 vs Chris Jericho : **** 1/4
OTL 12 vs Daniel Bryan : **** 3/4
NWO 12 vs Daniel Bryan vs Kane : *** 3/4

Fucking EPIC title run. That's not counting the list of FANTASTIC Raw matches against the likes of Ziggler, Henry, and Bryan. We're in the middle of something very special here that I felt the need to recognize. Any other title reign with those credentials and with that much consistency ?





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I agree Punk has been on a good run but technically this title reign starts at Survivor Series '11. Still I'll rate his run from when he started his consistent workrate:

CP 11 vs Rey Mysterio : *** 1/2
MITB 11 vs John Cena : **** 1/2
SS 11 vs John Cena : ****
NOC 11 vs HHH : *** 1/4
HIAC 11 vs John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio : ***
Ven 11 w/ HHH vs Awesome Truth : ** 1/2
SS 11 vs Alberto Del Rio : *** 1/2
TLC 11 vs Miz vs Del Rio : *** 1/4
RR 12 vs Dolph Ziggler : ***
EC 12 RAW Elimination Chamber : ***
WM XXVIII vs Chris Jericho : ****
ER 12 vs Chris Jericho : ****
OTL 12 vs Daniel Bryan : **** 1/2
NWO 12 vs Daniel Bryan vs Kane : ***


THIS CHRISTMAS
ALL I'M REALLY ASKING FOR IS YOU

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm not AS high on some of Punk's matches as others, but it's the best WWE Title reign in years. Probably since Cena in 07. Guy's had like three good matches that involve Kane, ffs.

watching Judgment Day 2000 later today. Literally not ever seen a single match on the show.

That's ok then. Was gonna have to bludgeon you with something had you done the poll and NOT watched the Iron Man at least. And Mike would be terribly upset if you didn't watch GMS dance until his pants fell down .
