I've never saved my 'work' once I've stopped needing it. (at school or on internet) Maybe I should rethink that, though.

And for Backlash 07, I've seen the two World Title matches and the US Title match. All three are great.

Punk/Cena and Orton/Ziggler were worthy of four snowflakes. Excellent PPV full of great in-ring action.

WWE Night of Champions 2012 : First Take


IC Championship
The Miz(c) vs Sin Cara vs Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio : ** 3/4

WWE Tag Team Championship
Kofi Kingston/R-Truth(c) vs Daniel Bryan/Kane : ** 1/2

US Championship
Antonio Cesaro(c) vs Zack Ryder : ** 1/2

Dolph Ziggler vs Randy Orton : *** 3/4

Divas Championship
Layla (c) vs Eve Torres : * 3/4

World Heavyweight Championship
Sheamus (c) vs Alberto Del Rio : ***

WWE Championship
CM Punk (c) vs John Cena : **** 1/2

Initial Thoughts :

Before I wrote this , I took the time to look at some other "WORLD-FIRST" reviews of this show , and I saw terms like "best show of the year" and "fucking awesome" to describe it. How would I PERSONALLY describe this show, well I can encapsulate my feelings for this show in one word : Good. This was good stuff, I just don't believe it's as great as what the rest of the masses are saying at the moment. There were various matches throughout the show that I just looked at and said "well THAT'S not that great" , and I'm going to give you a few examples of this....

The first 3 matches have been receiving consistent ***+ ratings all night. I could not disagree with this more, as I thought these were all OKAY matches, but nothing special. The Tag and US title matches both went shorter than 10 minutes and weren't special whatsoever, while the IC match average-ish for a PPV match but featured some truly horrendous wrestling at times from Cara and The Miz. Rhodes and ESPECIALLY Mysterio saved it for sure. Divas match gets partial credit from time to time and I don't know why, it was just your standard bad WWE Divas match in 2012.

Sheamus/Del Rio was a good encounter with some drama and heat behind it, liked the slow build and all the teases of the Brogue kick throughout. These two always put on GOOD matches, but to be main-event caliber you have to get out of that GOOD gear and step it up to the next GREAT gear, which brings me to the two men who should have been fighting for the World Title tonight , Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton. These 2 just went out there with tons of time and made everybody believe that they should be the featured players on smackdown. Loved how Ziggler incorporates the sleeper holds in his matches, love his hustle as well. These two will most definitely go at it again for the title in the future (Rumble ? Wrestlemania triple threat with Sheamus ?) , and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Now we get to the bread and butter of the show, the match that everybody came out to see in Cena-Punk III (on PPV anyways). I have a few things to say about this match, and I'm going to start with the obvious : This match was awesome, and I don't think that anybody can dispute that. Both men brought out that extra special in this one, from their facial expressions right down to their movesets (Cena's suicide dive, Punk's Rock Bottom). The story here was classic, simple, and effective : Neither man can stop the other, there can't be a winner. Completely cool with the ending here, as it sets up what should be another classic from these two in the Cell.

At the moment I'm having a really tough time gauging where I should put Punk-Cena III. I think it's the weakest of their 3 PPV encounters, but I also think it's an all time classic and another on the list of fantastic matches this year. **** 1/2 is good for now, but it could go up or down after a rewatch.

7/10

As for PPV's this year, it goes like this :

Extreme Rules : 9
Wrestlemania : 8.5
Over the Limit : 7.5
Night of Champions : 7
Summerslam : 7
No Way Out : 6.5
Money in the Bank : 6.5
Royal Rumble : 6
Elimination Chamber : 5.5

IC 4-Way- my least favourite match of the night. Cody and Miznain are the most boring by-the-numbers wrestlers there are. Mistico's a botch and always has been (can people stop pretending he was really good in Mexico?). Another waste of Rey Mysterio. God this was bad.

Tag Title Match- If this was another other than Bryan Danielson, it'd be garbage, but the Kane thing is kind of cool and this match didn't suck.

US title- Pretty squashy to begin with, but Ryder makes his comeback and it was pretty damn good. Felt like a cool Supertars main event and that uppercut was nasty. Everything Claudio did looked good and if he matches up with a Christian or a Rey I'll watch it.

Orton/Ziggler- Not only do I find Ziggler horribly overrated, I almost can't hide the fact anymore that I pretty much flat out dislike him at this point. He has such a crappy back-and-forth formula to his big matches and you'd almost have no fucking clue he's working as the heel. This got better as time went on (that barricade bump ruled), but this in general was boring.

Diva's Title- Eve heeling it up added something to this, but it went too long. I feel like a dumbass for saying that about a seven minute match, but w/e. This was fine and I liked it way more than the 4-way.

WHC- Sheamus' kick being unbanned after being banned not long before is a head-scratcher, but shit, this was good. I never understood people bitching about Sheamus not selling the arm during the Danielson stuff, and this was a good job of it as well. I especially liked him while he was actually in the armbreaker. People in the crowd chanting "Ziggler" had stopped by the end of this and seemed happy Sheamus retained. Am I the only one who really liked this?

WWE Title- This definitely overdid the finisher stuff, I think. Got a little annoying toward the end and I really hated the finish, but this was sure as hell good and definitely match of the night. Punk having a lot of cool counters for stuff and Cena just being the Hulk was a really theme that was pretty much made my JBL's commentary. One of my problems with Cena is the he tends to..... I don't know how to put it...... look to tired, too early, I guess. But Punk took most of the first half of the match and Cena was good working from the bottom (surprise). Loved how he sold the boxing punches. I'll never be a fan of Cena's pop-up comebacks but they don't stick out as too egregious. This has a lot of cool shit I don't feel like going into too much detail on, like Cena hitting the FKS without any theatrics and Punk countering other attempt by just shoving his boot up Cena's armpit were examples, but yeah, I'd definitely watch this again.

Not a bad show at all. Is Michael Cole turning babyface?
