Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Lesnar/HHH gets *** at best from me. The pace was dreadful. The action was even more so. The first part of the match was constantly HHH punching Lesnar, Lesnar ramming him into the corner, so on and so fourth. HHH knocks Lesnar out a couple of times. Lesnar then goes to work on the arm, and that is where the match gets extremely dull. HHH manages to open a weakness in the stomach, and the psychology in the match is good. The selling is good. But the execution of everything and the pace was plodding and never ending. Lesnar popping up from the second pedigree like that to lock in his submission, while a shocker, wasn't very realistic and I hate when that happens. Honestly I'm thinking three is too high. Even the crowd was dead for much of it. The match had no steam, and only hype from the two men competing. I'll need to re-watch it. I'm keeping it at *** for now.
At the very least, Lesnar came out looking very strong, as he should.
WWE Title match was underwhelming. Adding Show to the match was a huge mistake, and in the end only served to just prolong the Punk/Cena feud into NOC in Cena's hometown.
