I honestly do think it's because of the live experience I have of it in the stadium, as silly as it sounds. The story is sound and the last 5 minutes are great , really great, but the rest of it was just such a blur because I literally was still that exhausted. Everybody was. I've only watched it once on TV since then and enjoyed it a lot more than I did live in person so maybe I ought to watch it again.
No, I completely buy that reasoning. Being there live does take a lot out of a fan. 100% fact. I'll throw in that you should rewatch it. Of course, I'm very biased since I think the world of the match, haha. I'm wanting to put it in right now after I finish up some matches I got going atm.
You seen the Taker/Show match from CS the next month? I think I liked it even a bit more than that one.
And it's certainly up there. Just remembered that Mysterio/Kane being pretty solid too and DAT CHAIR SHOT.
Completely agree. I really wish Cody would have won that Vengeance match but as a whole I think that feud still really helped him. Rhodes Scholars has been really entertaining too. I'd really like to see Cody make his way into the main event scene at some point in his career.
Got $30 in amazon credit. Gonna get some used stuff and I'm thinking RR '10, Morrison's DVD and potentially Summerslam '11 or NOC '08. Those are all pretty cheap too.
Seen the Last Man Standing. Only once and that was back in 2008. So I really can't comment much on it other than I know I did like it. Only match in that feud I disliked was the shoddy Casket match from Survivor Series. Don't know what happened there.
Yep, I liked Kane/Mysterio. ***. He KILLED Rey
The fan inside of me really wanted Rhodes to get a good rub from it. In all honesty he did. Might have only won one match out of the 4 they had, but in the long run it worked out. Was a way for him to transition into a new phase of his career. He was still rolling with the IC Championship at the time so he wasn't in a hurry to be going over Orton in a massive capacity yet. YES. Thank the booking for Rhodes Scholars. Not only does it give Sandow more time, exposure, and a chance to keep establishing himself, but it revives Rhodes. Idk what happened after his program with Christian. He was too busy jobbing to Sin Cara every week? Really? Not gonna go crazy and claim "they almost killed him" but it sure as hell was a step back from how great of a 2011 he had.
Hey Night of Champions 2008. CENA VS TRIPLE H. (haha) I remember really liking the Edge/Batista match from that show too. On my last watch I had it at **** believe it or not. Buy it. Let me know how it holds up...
I wished I had it now. I could always d/l it or wise up and browse Amazon myself. (went on a TNA fix and that took all my cash)
Punk/Jericho from WM is
. Seriously tremendous match. Loved how they threw the "Punk gets DQ'd he loses the title" stuff in right before the match. Gives them something new to work with, with Jericho trying to get Punk so pissed off he goes crazy and gets DQ'd. When Jericho realises that won't work, he does his best to out-wrestle Punk and prove HE is the best in the world. ****1/2
Absolutely. It's wonderful. My favorite CM Punk match during his WWE Championship reign. And he's had a good number that I've enjoyed too.
