Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I liked HHH/Orton at WM25 for what it was. I agree with the points already made about the booking aspect of it, but as a match, it was solid from what I recall. I also think it got hurt by having Take/Michaels go on before it, just took the crowd out of it.
I re-watched both Taker/Michaels WM matches back to back last night and I still prefer 25 to 26. Without going in to a big thing about it since it'll prob be overlooked anyway, the "feel" of 25 felt more "authentic" to me. The rematch just couldn't draw me in at all. Not saying it's a bad match or anything, because it was really good, but not better than 25 imo. If i'm putting ratings on it, i'd go:
WM25: **** 1/2
WM26: *** 1/2 - 3/4ish
With that done, I'm gonna finish TLC 09, then hopefully my copy of Royal Rumble 2010 will come in and I'll start that, already got Elimination Chamber 2010. Prob gonna order some more 2010 shows later since i'm missing a good bit.
