Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
HIAC on first watch:
Hell No/Rhode Scholars- ***
Kofi/Miz and Cesaro/Gabriel and Mysterio-Cara/PTP- Wasn't paying attention to any of these... just couldn't give a fuck to watch em.
Punk/Ryback was what it was made out to be in the build up, but still had no business being in the cell. Ending kept Ryback looking strong, while Punk continues looking like a joke of a champion... which doesn't sit well with me for the last two months after spending 9 months as a fighting champion and looking legit. But the important thing at the end of the day is they keep Punk's reign going, and Ryback remains extremely strong and while he may not technically be undefeated, that loss was hardly a defeat. Punk played the role of chicken-shit heel to perfection and Ryback played his monster role to perfection, and ultimately I felt the match they had was the best they could do with what they were obviously given.
Just couldn't care to pay attention for half the PPV. Orton/Del Rio was a very good opener, the tag title match was good but ending pissed me off a bit. And Show/Sheamus to my surprise delivered a great match and MOTN. It was still very boring in a lot of spots, but once they went into finisher mode, match became really fun to watch. Was very shocker Show kicked out of the Brogue kick, and even more so that he won. Glad to see Sheamus' reign of terror is over.
I'm watching you...
