Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I'm sitting around waiting for Wrestlemania XXVIII to start so I decided I'd kill some time by watch a past Wrestlemania and since I've never seen Wrestlemania 24 I decided to give it a watch.

Finlay vs JBL ***3/4
Money In The Bank Ladder Match ****
Batista vs Umaga ***
Shawn Michaels vs Ric Flair ***1/2
Beth Phoenix/Melina vs Maria/Ashley **
Randy Orton vs Triple H vs John Cena ***3/4
Flyod Mayweather vs The Big Show **1/2
The Undertaker vs Edge ****1/4

Overall, this was a great Wrestlemania. The first half was really good, very entertaining. I think this MITB is my favourite of them all. Lots of great spots. Batista vs Umaga is actually pretty watchable and Finlay/JBL was beast. The placement of HBK vs Flair on the card kind of bugged me because it was such an emotional moment that by the time we got to the Divas match it felt as if all the energy was drained out of the arena. Then again, by putting it on earlier it meant that it wasn't going to take away much from the world title matches so yeah, it wasn't a bad decision after all. The second half kind of faltered with the Divas match (which felt a bit sloppy at times) and Mayweather vs Big Show but the triple threat was fun and the main event was well paced and full of excitement. There's this one moment, had you forgotten it was an Undertaker Wrestlemania match you thought for sure Edge was gonna win.

I've seen every Mania from 14-27 and this is no doubt one of my favourites.

Love WM 24, in my top 3 WM shows of all time along with 19 and 26. Show/Mayweather is fucking awesome, best celebrity match of all time. So much fun.

To think I could've been entering this thread and giving Bryan/Sheamus close to ****. Speechless

The Undertaker vs Triple H Hell In A Cell Wrestlemania XXVIII
This match was without a doubt MOTN for the PPV. Pure, raw emotion. But this match had no damn reason to be HIAC. The cell served no damn purpose and this could have been a regular NO-DQ match and you wouldn't have tell the difference. Don't get me wrong, it's a great match. It was very emotional, told a great story but it's the cell served no purpose. To me, it's like Flair vs HBK and I'll give it the same rating.

***1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, I know that this will probably be unpopular, but I'd give the full five to Taker/HHH.

HBK was amazing. Even as a fucking special guest ref, he steals the show.

The PPV overall was kind of disappointing, but still not bad.

Rocky winning makes fuck all sense.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WrestleMania 28:
Sheamus vs Bryan - WHAT THE FUCK?! DUD
Orton vs Kane - Much better than expected and it was kept decently short too. **3/4
Show vs Rhodes - Wasn't paying full attention to this. *
Undertaker vs Triple H - Not a fan of this match. Way too much confusing overbooking with 'drama-building' moments. ***
Team Teddy vs Team Johnny - Boring at first but really got going in the last few minutes. ***
Jericho vs Punk - Quite sloppy but still a potential MOTY. The submission counters are the end were ingenious. ****1/4
Rock vs Cena - Good in some moments, meh in others. Crowd was always great. ***1/4

A tad underwhelming after being predicted the greatest PPV since WrestleMania X-Seven, but I can't say I didn't enjoy this. Hell, it can be as bad as last year's craptacular event.
