Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Obis, if I pictured HHH as Bryan , we would have had Punk vs HHH. Since I've been lobbying for a Wrestlemania feud between the two for like 3 years now (minus the shenanigans of the first match, with Punk going over this time), the match would probably get Five HUNDRED STARZ! from myself. With that being said, you made it extremely easy to segway into this..

Triple H PPV Matches : The List (*** 1/4 - *** 3/4)

Most people who aren't as biased towards Mr. Levesque as I am will see some MAJOR flaws with most of my ratings. To those people I give a resounding FUCK YOU. Trips is the man (and yes, I'm claiming that Trips has wrestled 44 ****+ matches on PPV out of 146, roughly 30 percent.) whether you like it or not . Final 44 comes tomorrow. Anybody wanna give me a shoutout to tell me about a match that I agree with them on that nobody else does, or how fucking crazy I must be to rate various matches with HBK, Orton, and Batista incrediby high ? Or, speaking of high.. You can ask me WAS I high when I did this list (Being legit serious...partly) ? Anyways....Off to watch some PUNK matches over the last year for my next project





"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

If I could describe this match in one word (minus the ending) , it would be FUN. This is your typical big time face destroys corporate figure match, except this is less intense and more of a comedy type match. Cena doesn't BRUTALLY beat Johnny Ace throughout the match, he just toys with Ace until the finish. It was interesting and it kept me engaged, especially Johnny Ace's Booker T impression that had me cracking up. It was something we haven't seen before in the main event of a PPV , but I feel that it somewhat worked... Until the finish.

Oh my god, do I HATE the ending to this PPV. Not that Johnny Ace won, it's just the fact that we laid witness to one of the worst heel turns in history. Here's a few reasons why this ending sucked : Number one , this was extremely obvious. Number two, this is 2012 and the Big Show switches allegiances atleast 3 times a year so nobody really cares. Number three, if you're going to go this route, DO IT BEFORE THE EPIC WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH. Why did this have to end the PPV... I mean... THE BIG SHOW ? If it had to be somebody relevant like Punk or Ryder it would have been cool, but SHOW ? Ugh nevermind. This was super fun while it lasted, but the ending pisses me off more than anything I've ever seen in wrestling, and that's saying ALOT. Hard to grade, so we'll give it an average one.

** 1/2
I find it funny that you reviewed and gave more than half a star for this match. This crapfest of a match made me ashamed of being a WWE fan.


DAMN RIGHT

PUNK / BRYAN / AMBROSE / ZIGGLER / CESARO / ZAYN

PAIGE / AJ / BAYLEY / BLISS / BANKS / IVELISSE

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I legit enjoyed the Big Johnny/Cena match but I knew I would be in the minority. It was heaps of fun watching Cena fuck Laurinaitis up and I think most of the distain from the match mostly stems from the craptacular storyline revolving around the match and the that this stopped the WWE title from going on last. I'd probably go *** on this.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cena/Johnny was a fun match, nothing more. Needed perhaps less time, and the finish was so unbelievably obvious it actually hurt the overall match too. But watching Cena maul Johnny, and the bit in the chair at commentary was awesome.

Love Bryan/Punk from OTL. Watched it about 5 times now, even downloaded the show in HD and watched it on my big TV downstairs lol. Love it. Love it love it love it love it love it. ATM I still have Undertaker/HHH HIAC as my #1 MOTY, but OTL is a damn close second. Could do with watching them back to back, but I'm gonna wait until I finally buy WM on Bluray and then do it .

My MOTY is still HHH/Taker closely followed by Lesner/Cena.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Really says something about the quality of matches we've had this year when I can think of 5 legit MOTYC that I can easily see anyone having as their #1 match:

Undertaker/HHH HIAC WM
Punk/Jericho WM
Bryan/Sheamus 2/3 Falls ER
Cena/Lesnar ER
Bryan/Punk OLT



A best of 2012 PPV set could be fucking EPIC if they put the right stuff on lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

This year has been wonderful for PPV matches. Other than EC which was sort of lacking after the opener.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2011 is was better in terms of matches IMHO.

The Rumble had that amazing Edge/Ziggler match, both Chamber matches were awesome the month after, Mania had Taker/HHH II, Extreme Rules had great matches in Orton/Punk, Christian/Del Rio, Rhodes/Mysterio, and Cena/Miz/Morrison.

OTL had Christian/Orton in a fast paced MOTYC, Capitol Punishment had Punk/Mysterio, MITB was AMAZING all around. I'm not going to go the entire year, but 2011 was imo the best ring year ever in WWE besides maybe 2002.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Lesnar/Cena is comfortably my MOTY so far, but the year has been really strong for ring work.

Bryan/Show at the start of the year despite not setting the world on fire in terms of workrate were just wonderful character driven matches with some great performances by both men, Bryan/Sheamus and Bryan/Punk speak for themselves: some superb selling, offence, striking and depth in both matches.

Punk/Henry on Raw the night after Wrestlemania was one of the strongest TV matches in recent memory, superb David v Goliath match focusing on Henry's character performance, the build to Punk's eventual comeback and Henry being taken off his feet as well as Punk's selling. The type of match that shows off Punk's attributes as a face worker, such a smartly orchestrated match.

Sheamus too has had some strong matches involving Jericho, Orton and Tensai. Its a shame the guy has been given shit to work with in terms of storylines and angles because in terms of his wrestling he's been a fine champion like Punk, only with less support from creative to make his reign anything more than a collection of strong matches.

Taker/HHH and Punk/Jericho didn't particularly wow me for one reason or another, but I did find the finishing sequence in Punk/Jericho at Wrestlemania to be remarkably well done compared to other counter heavy finishing stretches in the past. NXT and Superstars have also been considerably strong in terms of consistent matches, Hunico still needs a bit more depth for me to be fully on his bandwagon but he works these sprint esque matches rather well compared to others and has had some really fun matches. Mcintyre not being given enough time on either show or given a run of decent opponents is a travesty, but the man can still perform and turn in a great performance when needed. And of course Ambrose/Regal II down in FCW was incredible and another notch in WWE's strong year ring wise.
