Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ok good. That gets praise. Favorite match from that PPV franchise. The 2010 & 2011 TLC matches worked for me too. What was it about the 4 way from 2010 that you thought was crap, KC?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cena losing to Rock, then losing to Brock, then going on a year long storyline where he questions whether he's still got it as a top guy, maybe with a PPV match against a younger guy like Rhodes or something who could really reap the rewards of getting a victory off him during a story arc like that, would have been immense. The feud with Punk still could have played out with Cena simply being unable to beat him. Then they could build to Cena literally having to win the Rumble to rid himself of his self doubt and earn his shot at Wrestlemania. He does so under questionable circumstances. In between the Rumble and Mania they could set up the rematch with Rock but this time we don't know if Cena can win because they play on the fact that Rock already beat him before along with his miserable year etc. Is Cena still the top dog in WWE? Then Cena finally triumphs in the end to overcome and win the title and stay face...OR he realizes that he can't win by playing fairly anymore and does the unthinkable...HEEL TURN BOOM. That would have been awesome imo and a story more than worth the investment.

Would have been WWE giving a losing streak storyline to someone that could actually work with it and not just lose all the momentum they've ever had (cough Shelton cough MVP cough). I love the idea of that. Shame it didn't happen.

The crowd sure looked like they were ready to start some shit when Cena attempted the People's Elbow. The way the boos echoed throughout the arena was just amazing.

That would have been great. They can still correct that mistake by doing Rock/Cena II but turn Cena heel on his way to victory. Although it may be too late with Punk already being a heel. But hey, I'm all for them burying Punk and letting Cena take the top heel spot.

Perfect. Too bad WWE are morons and never want to pull the trigger with the Cena going heel stuff.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

There's no point in doing a story like that now though since they ruined it at the very next PPV by having him go over Brock. It would be stupid and half assed at this stage. It needed to be done right from the beginning. Remember this?



"I need to win...Wrestlemania 28 is my legacy..."

So much for that. They fucking forgot about what was said in this promo as soon as it aired. There were no consequences or knock on effects of Cena losing to Rock. Nothing happened. He bounced back right away, got demolished by Brock Lesnar and managed to win in the end. There's your year long struggle to prove you still have it jammed into 3 weeks. Yay for storytelling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

They put that story you wrote out into effect for the hype video vs Brock. It would have mushroomed from there if he actually would have lost.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yup. But they fucked it up as usual. It never ceases to amaze me that a company who prides itself on 'telling stories' can't seem to do it worth a damn anymore. Occasionally we'll get masterful glimmers of hope in amongst the sea of shit but for the most part, as a storytelling sports entertainment organization, WWE fucking suck lol.

One of the big reasons I've hated 2012. It started off well and a Cena heel turn would have done wonders. But then they fucked it up and went to a status quo that was last around before the 2011 summer.

On the serious tip, does anyone ever give a damn about Del Rio? I almost feel sorry for the guy. WWE tries anything they can and fans don't bother booing him even in protest of being shoved down their throats.
