Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have both Taker/Cena Vengeance 03 and that 04 SD match at ****. Taker/Cena were awesome together. They also had a match on Raw in 06, that while short, I remember being good for what it was. Gotta find and rewatch it though.

I have no doubt that at a Mania Taker and Cena can go out there and deliver a classic.

Cena/Angle at NM gets ***3/4. Great match as well.


^The Taker/Cena match I talked about from Raw in 06. ***1/4. The pace was great. The crowd was very alive. Taker and Cena were both at their best during this time. This feels like an old school Taker match. Cena's offense doesn't do much, and he can't seem to get Taker down, and when he finally does Taker just sits up. They reverse finishers a bit until Taker finally gets the chokeslam, and from there KING BOOKAH and Big Show interfere. Very good tv match. Short (4 and a half minutes by my count), but good.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's funny that in No Mercy, Cena and Angle get a split reaction with the male audience mostly backing Cena while the converse of that would happen in 2005 and 2006 during their First Blood match, which I rate at ***1/4.

And I'm looking forward to Taker/Cena in 2004 when I get to that point, almost finished with 2003 so I'm looking forward to face Cena as Dr. of Thugaonmics even though I know he was better as a heel. Smackdown may not be as fun, though, since Benoit moves over to Raw and Lesnar leaves.

Back to Cena/Taker, there's no doubt they'll put on a match to be remembered for decades if they face off at Mania. And I've seen that Raw 06 match before, way too short for me to be able to give a real opinion on it. My favorite match of theirs is the rematch after Vengeance where A-Train interferes, though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Summerslam 2012:

Jericho/Ziggler ***1/4
Daniel/Kane ***1/4
Rey/Miz **3/4
Sheamus/Berto ****
Truth + Kofi/PTP (unseen)
Punk/Show/Cena **
Brock/Hunter ****3/4

General thoughts:
Jericho/Ziggler was meant to be one of my top favourite matches ever, but maybe that was expecting too much?

DBry somehow makes me enjoy a match with two dudes I have no interest in that were given half the time, more than a match between two of my favourite wrestlers that opened the show. :|

Miz/Rey was eh, but what surprised me was Miz actually held his own. Step by step, he is improving

MASSIVE improvement between Sheamus/Berto. The ending was obviously booked to make a rematch possible, which I don't know what they were thinking because last time they stunk the joint out. This was great though, so if it's for more like this then I'm all for it.

WTF was that triple threat tho? The good news is I've always been a fan of the double fall finish, even if it was executed better the first(?) time on RAW.

FUCK. Brock is a BEAST. For me that was joint MOTY with the cell match.

Heaven is a place on earth.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

main event sucked

the entire match should have been triple h having his finishers no sold, being stomped in the crotch 45 million times while lesnar takes a shit on him, makes him tap and throws him into a trash can and brock has sex with steph in the ring

it also should have lasted 10 seconds

and we should win things by watching it

negative five stars

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Loved the main event, I'd echo Clique's ratings. Legit thought Lesnar was about to die on PPV though, looked to be spitting up blood.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

SummerSlam 2012

Dolph Ziggler VS Chris Jericho-***3/4
Good match. Great back and forth at end. Wish Ziggles went over though

Kane VS Daniel Bryan-***
Bryan brought out good things here and the win was surprising

Miz VS Rey Mysterio - ***2/4
Actually a good match from Miz/Mysterio.

Sheamus VS Alberto Del Rio - ***1/4
Slow and boring. Not HALF as bad as MITB though. Ending was meh.

PTP vs Kofi/Truth - **
Not much to say

John Cena VS CM Punk VS Big Show - **3/4
Boring as Big Show controlled. Crowd was hot so it helped a lot to that factor. Finish I wish Punk hit the GTS on Cena but oh well.

Lesnar VS Triple H - ****1/4
Fuckin' awesome. You had Triple H desperately using gut attacks to weaken Lesnar (From his legit Diverticulitis problems). Which is what was his big weakness in UFC. The finish was excellent. Just breaks the arm no issue. Heyman also added to the intemsity and the crowd was hot.

Not too bad a show to be honest. I enjoyed it.

Ryan Reeves ‏@Ryback22 2m
I call dibs on GTS, Pepsi Plunge and running knee in corner. I am sure Sheamus will take the rest.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jericho V Ziggler ***1/4 and that was the best match on the show.

HHH V Lesnar sucked. *1/2. Boring as hell. I saw what they were going for and it fell flat on its face. The crowd was dead for most of it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Looks like a pretty skip-worthy show. I guess I'll just check out Lesnar/HHH later

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Honestly, i loved the match

But the sheer absurd negativity over the dumbest shit possible in the summerslam thread just killed the match for me

Right man won, selling was perfect, beautifully executed move, Brock looked like an absolute monster and even the ending worked. Fitting in the context of a PERSONAL FEUD, Triple H walking out broken and crying was perfect. He tapped out, gave up. In his prime he could have avenged his wife and beat the fuck out of lesnar. but he failed now. and it killed him. He wasnt good enough

Infact if you ask me, this is exactly how the Wrestlemania 25 match vs Orton shoulda gone. Or atleast similarly to this
