I think that's where they were headed but I wanted HHH/Jeff Hardy and Orton/Cena. Hardy could have had his big pay-off after his extensive chase in another great match with Hunter. While they could have expended on the Orton holding the show hostage with a lawsuit and Cena being the defender of the company. However, I did like the build they did with HHH/Orton but the triple threat just sucked.

WM25 would have been a better card with this

Orton/Cena World Title (main event)
HHH/Hardy WWE Title
Taker/HBK
Jericho/Mysterio IC Title (w/Steamboat in corner)
Edge/Big Show (over Vickie's 'love' I guess)
Divas Battle Royal (minus Santina & Kid Rock; plus Trish, Lita, entrances,and Women's Title)
MITB V
Colons/Miz & Morrison (open the show)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Punk DVD cover looks really good.

Edit: Completely agreed with Clique. I'd have loved to have seen Hardy/HHH at WM.

And there's even Eddie Guerrero talking about how great their friendship is.

Also, I watched the F4W for the IC title at No Way Out 2001 yesterday and it was a solid ***3/4 to me. Fatal Four Ways are usually entertaining and this one is no different.
I watched some of the Benoit DVD earlier. The documentary (which is a pretty great doc) and then the Al Snow match (only put in the first disc lol). Despite only being a 2 disc set its filled with a bunch of really great matches and with the doc its probably one of the better superstar releases. Shame we won't get another, but I can understand why we won't. Might have to pick up a custom set at some point. When I have money. And I find a good one .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WM25's main event was supposed to be Hogan vs Cena IIRC, but before Hogan came back to TV to start the program, he had another back surgery and they just threw Cena to the Show/Edge/Vickie angle.

WM25 would have been awesome with Hogan/Cena. And I honestly thought that they're going to do Orton/Vince at WM for the final payoff.

Hogan/Cena(main event)
Orton/Vince
Taker/HBK
Hardy/HHH WWE title
Edge/Show WHC
Jericho/Steamboat
And a serious Rey Mysterio match.

HUGE WM.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think a longer Rey/JBL match could have worked. Even though JBL wasn't in amazing shape, they had pretty strong matches in the past.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

NWO: New World Order - imaginative title, I hope they don't just blend the wcw/monday night wars interviews together for this one, they could include the legends of wrestling: nwo episode with Nash,

Looking forward to the match selection, hostile takeover with full entrances?

Mysterio/Regal for the IC Title wouldn't have been bad either.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not looking forward to match selection for the NWO set. Don't recall off the top of my head ANY NWO matches worth a damn. Sure, Hogan/Goldberg and Hogan/Luger are important matches for the title changes and shit, but they aren't good matches. And then there's... uhhh... that one match with thingy...

Actually I think I liked War Games 96. That's about it.

God, that Punk's DVD cover looks horrible, even more horrible than Punk himself.

Extreme Rules 2011
MITB 2011
No Way Out 2012
MITB 2012

WWE seriously needs to stop with the spoilerific covers!



The English cover for Punk's DVD.

Re: Wrestlemania 25

I think the show would've been better had they kept the original planned double main event of Cena Vs. Orton and Edge Vs. HHH before switching it around to swerve the IWC.
