Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oops, had to go edit that back that time. Just a typo, but thanks for pointing it out as I'm basing it on what I feel to be the greatest WWE Championship matches and not necessarily my favourites.

Speaking of Royal Rumble 2012 , if my list was the top 101 WWE Championship matches ever, Punk-Ziggler would definitely be on the list. That's actually an example of a favourite little match of mine as I just love it and think it's just another great WWE Championship match of CM Punk. When I do my honourable mentions before the top 5, that's definitely going to be in there for sure.

STARZ for RR 12*

Bryan-Henry-Show Cage : ***
Cena-Kane : ** 3/4
Divas Match : Don't Remember...Who Cares?
Punk-ZIGGLEZZZ : *** 1/2
Rumble : *** 1/4

Wrote a in-depth review of it once upon a time, but then my computer crashed and...YEAH. MOTN is Punk-Ziggler, and the Rumble is kind of a fail until we get to Sheamus-Jericho (which was one of the best fucking endings to a Rumble match ever). The cage match is short but it's fucking AWESOME and I absolutely adore it, Cena-Kane is a pretty good match as well. Not the best PPV ever, but definitely not the worst.

6/10





"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

I don't think it would have been a good idea to put Eddie against Taker in 2004, it would have a little random tbh. it should have happened when Eddie turned heel in 2005.
Problem is, Eddie was turning face in late 05. Only reason he turned heel was to put Rey over so Rey could move up to main eventer. People think Rey only got a huge push because of Eddies passing, but truth is he was slowly being built up for it. I think the death just made it get rushed....kinda off topic I know...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WWE Championship stuff: Austin/Foley and Michaels/Diesel would probably be in my top ten. Actually since this is PPV only they'd definitely be in the top ten and probably be in the top five. I haven;t watched Hogan/Warrior in a while, but that'd probably be pretty damn high as well.

Any Chicagoans going to CM Punk's DVD premier on Thursday? I might go if I can get off of work.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Undertaker's last 6 WrestleMania matches:

WrestleMania 25 ~ *****
WrestleMania 28 ~ ****3/4
WrestleMania 26 ~ ****1/2
WrestleMania 24 ~ ****1/4
WrestleMania 23 ~ ****
WrestleMania 27 ~ ***

The match at 27 kind of sucked. Considering the curve of the other ratings.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Recently watched Taker/HBK 2, and I forgot how fucking awful Striker was on commentary. If JR was commentating, it probably would have been a ***** to me instead of **** 1/2, that's how bad he was.

HBK kicks out of a tombstone WM25: I AM NOT BELIEVING THIS!!! I'VE JUST HAD AN OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE!!!!
HBK kicks out of a second tombstone WM26: OHHH!

like, what the fuck?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Striker's always been a horrible commentator. Shitty "oh-ho-HOOO!"s everywhere and random I Know Stuff About Wrestling BS. He's really not that good at anything and it's kind of surprising that people actually liked him. The highlight of his career were the matches he had with Darren Young last year.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

On the topic of commentators, I never found the appeal of Joey Styles. Maybe it's just me and my very little knowlege of original ECW, (only saw him in his WWE work) but I just was never really a fan, his OH MY GOD was like a pig squealing and he barely has any insight into the match or what to add.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't let commentary affect my ratings, no matter how bad. If bad commentary did affect my ratings, I probably wouldn't have rated anything over *** in the last 4 years or so .

Joey Styles... I quite like him, but only his WWE run lol.

Top 3 play by play:

1. JR
2. Lance Russell
3. Gordon Solie

Colour:

1. Bobby Heenan
2. Jesse Ventura
3. JBL
