Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I wouldn't doubt it if they TRIED to kill off Survivor Series in 2010 , I mean... WADE BARRETT main evented it. What the fuck? Come to think of it, in 2010 Wade Barrett main evented the last 3 PPVs of the year..WHY ?!?!? I'm praying that he doesn't come back and win the MITB because he just doesn't do it for me at all.
Survivor Series 2011 had some great hype around it , including Rock's return , Punk's one-on-one rematch for the title , and a rematch of the battle of the bigs. The last few "BIG 4" events (not including RR 2012) have given us a substantial amount of hype. I mean Mania is Mania, SSlam 11 had the Punk-Cena II match that people were hyped to see , Survivor Series had everything I just mentioned, and WM 28 is self explanatory.
In regards to the Shawn Michaels vs Triple H series : Those two are among my favourites of all time , so everytime they step into the ring I thoroughly enjoy it. I'd personally give their DEC RAW match the distinction of being my TV-MOTD. The controversial matches that these two have had are the Armageddon 3SOH , HIAC , and Taboo Tuesday matches. I think the Armageddon match and the Bad Blood match share the same distinction in that if you don't LOVE the two guys who are competing in them, you won't enjoy them very much. Taboo Tuesday match however, was very story driven and excellent IMO. To see Shawn basically get screwed AGAIN was insane.

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
