He was even explaining to the viewers at home exactly where the injury was to his hand and was pretty much mapping it out. He adds so much to a match that I doubt the average viewer notices.

Yea, except Undertaker and Punk already played off the screw job. Can't you do something a bit more fresh for CM Punk? I guess I'm just sick of the WWE banking on their past. Stale. I felt the ending sucked the air out of the match, for me, and was pretty anti-climatic. For a BIG MATCH atmosphere, that shouldn't happen. It would never happen at a Wrestlemania (Sans Austins heel turn, which was classic).

And, yes, I also agree with one of the posters complaining about the SS booking. Having Del Rio cash in on Punk after the SS match?! Completely robbing the company of the best momentum on probably the best feud they've had in a number of years. Pulled the plug.

I was kind of disappointed with the booking, giving the quality Punk and Cena had in the ring. Both matches to me had bummer endings.

But, hey, that's just my 2 cents.

I don't think even JR could sell that anger.



Thanks Punk

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Thoughts on the Jeff Hardy/Undertaker ladder match from Raw in 2002? I just watched it since I first saw it when it aired on TV over here and it holds up and then some. Easily Jeff Hardy's best performance and possibly best match. He gets some great sympathy from the crowd by flopping around El Generico style. The spots aren't all that extreme when compared to other gimmick matches at the time, but it's the well executed yet simple and cliche narrative is where the match really shines. Take that and add all the post-match stuff and you are looking at a ****1/4 rating.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

****. Jeff's second best singles match ever behind his match with HHH at NM 08 imo. But the Taker/Jeff ladder match was the first big put over Jeff got, especially after the match where Taker gave Jeff props. Of course, he left/was fired/whatever the fuck happened and didn't get back on track until 2008 when he faced Orton and beat HHH.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've got Hardy/Taker at ****1/4 as well. The emotion in that match is amazing and it really put Jeff over.

MAKE YOURSELF FAMOUS, KID!

It obviously is not as dramatic as their classic at WrestleMania VII with the stakes higher than ever before with their careers on the line but you could feel the enormity of this main event championship match. Savage's selling of his injury was stellar as was he's guidance of Warrior to another one of the best matches of his career. Along with Rick Rude or the "Ultimate Challenge" with Hogan, Savage probably brought out the best in Warrior in the ring. Everyone should watch this great match and give some of the SummerSlam 92 glory to it because Savage and Warrior deserve it for their efforts here.
Still love this match, one of my faves from the New Gen era, i know the ending with Flair/Perfect annoys some people but it was all part of the whole main story so i can forgive them for that, would have of course preffered a clean finish,

Shame Warrior got the boot afterwards so we didn't have the revenge storyline with Hennig/Flair.

Yeah, Undertaker and Punk played off the screwjob, but at least they did it in a different way completely (actually screwing Undertaker, Cena prevented Punk from getting screwed) in the Punk/Cena match.

Jim Ross was fucking epic in the Taker/Hardy ladder match. I dare to imagine what it would have been like if Lawler/Cole 2011 called it

Cole: VINTAGE UNDERTAKER
Cole: VINTAGE JEFF HARDY
Cole: VINTAGE MIZ
Lawler: Undertaker is cheating using the ladder as a weapon!
Lawler: C'mon Jeff! USE THE LADDER~!
Cole: Look at this folks, Hardy, Undertaker, Ladder and MIZ MIZ MIZ trending on twitter!
Lawler: TOUT TOUT TOUT
Cole: Khloe Kardashian says Jeff Hardy is cute
Lawler: Well you know what I think about Khloe Kardashian...she's a very handsome woman. *Lawler sighs and he reminisces to the days before he was tranquilized before each Raw and fit into an Ed Hardy t-shirt. The days when his mind was filled with PUPPIES*
Cole: IS THAT MIZ IN THE RING?
Mike Tenay: IS THAT THE MOZ IN THE IMPACT ZONE?

Really paints a picture of the match.
