Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Henry is the TV match of the year for me, with nothing else really jumping out close to its level. One of if not Punk's best performance as a babyface, complimented by Henry being ON and just controlling the match with such ease. A few great teases and subtle build to Punk mounting a comeback, culminating in the kick and Henry's lovely delayed bump. Only downside is the finish but even that is worked and timed as well as they could have in protecting both men with neither able to afford taking the loss, and the setup behind it was really creative and smart and deserves praise compared to some of the lazy countout/DQ endings WWE have thrown our way this year.

Might rewatch that along with Sheamus/Show sometime to see which is better. Show/Sheamus is far more complete as a whole match, but I think I might just prefer the long build to Punk's comeback a little bit more.

Seriously, Henry is one of the most underrated big man workers, ever. His latest heel run was such great work for him. Both in the ring and as a character.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Divas tag match on NXT 2 weeks ago was a lot of fun. I agree with Regal, Alicia Fox legit has one of the best bridges out there. Rollins/Slater was also pretty good and Rollins' new finisher is awesome. Kidd/Cesaro had a really good match as well. Oh, and Justin Gabriel is actually rather witty lol. DEM PROMO SKILLS. Bo Dallas needs to go fucking do one though. Horrible on the mic but I suppose he's only 22 or whatever.

NXT > RAW & SD tbh.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Going to be stuck in a hotel later tonight for a bit so I stockpiled some shit to watch. Finally going to get around to Cena/Punk NOC. I also just downloaded Triple H/Edge from Japan 2005 since I saw it mentioned by somebody in here. I can't really recall anything about that one tbh. The same show has Flair/Michaels on it too which is even better. I have the entire ER 12 PPV on standby incase I really get bored lol. Should be fun.

I've yet to see HHH/Edge from that Japan show but I recall really enjoying Flair/HBK.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Summerslam 2005:

Benoit vs Orlando Jordan (c) for the US title: 1/4 *. Crowd was going absolutely apeshit for Benoit which was the main reason why I didn't give this a dud. Lol at Benoit post match

Edge vs Matt Hardy: at the chants toward Lita, fuck! Nice little brawl, although it was only about 5 mins. **

Eddie vs Rey ladder match: I remember watching this match and not liking it, I thought the ending was really dumb. On second watch, it's alot better. Some great spots throughout the match, like when Eddie put Rey in between 2 ladders and flipped onto him. Backdrop by Rey on the ladder to Eddie was nice as well. VERY nice 3 Amigos spot too. Ending was...still fucking dumb even 7 years later. Still, worth the watch. *** 1/4

Kurt vs Eugene: Again, 1/4 * just for the crowd. Not much else to say about this

Orton vs Taker: Very good match, great selling throughout, some great back and forths, hell I might have even liked this better than their fucking Mania match. *** 3/4

Cena(c) vs Y2J for the WWE championship: I liked how Jericho worked on Cena's ribs the entire match (the 3 elbows spot was great), the first half of this match was very boring but the second half it really picked up. Great counters from Jericho, and a good ending as well. The first half was so bad though, brought down my rating on the match a bit. ***

Batista (c) vs JBL No Holds Barred match for the WHC: Is it just me, or was this really boring? Outside of Batista's spear and the powerbomb on the steps, there's nothing else that I cared for here. **

Hogan vs HBK: This actually wasn't that bad, alot less overselling than I remembered. at the We Want Bret chant, this crowd has been money all night. Typical ending, but it's Hogan, he looked like he could barely move around this match. ** 1/4

Overall: ** 1/2, matches were either very short, or went on too long (main event). 2 DUDs if you ignore the crowd,, very underwhelming main event considering the hype that match got, but there's also a great match in Orton/Taker and 2 good ones in the ladder match and Cena/Y2J (although I'd start watching from the second half of the match).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah and Segunda, it's very understandable if you didn't get the Michaels/Taker matches (I know you like WM26 Seg), as long as you see why other people do 'get' it.

I'd probably go with the Survivor Series '08 match based on the storytelling of Cena returning from injury and questioning his abilities, and Jericho controlling most of the match with a strongly focused attack on Cena's neck during the match.

Exactly. It would be boring if everyone had the same opinions about every match and wrestler. Besides the people in this thread generally argue their position well, rather than hiding behind defensive slandering of someone else's opinion simply because it contradicts there's.

Btw the folks in the Graphics section have put together some banners as you requested for the Classic Wrestling Section. Safe to say a couple are pretty spectacular.

Is that a theme with Cena/Jericho? I don't remember their raw match earlier this year well, but Jericho worked a body part (ribs) the entire match during their Summerslam 05 match as well.
