The last few Foley promos have been lengthy, haven't they? The interactions with Punk are all 10+ minutes, at least (or they seem like it).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've never been on the Ziggler train. I started liking him in 2010 as a midcarder (after hating him), but his way of working a big main event/World Title match is terrible. I never want to watch his Orton or Sheamus or Punk PPV matches from this year again. Good bumper, but he oversells. Can be pretty boring on offense.

I can't tell you how many matches of his I watched for the WCW poll and how good they could have been if he'd have strung a half interesting and compelling control segment.

The aforementioned Smiley match fucking rules though, and its on youtube.
Watched a Smiley match earlier this year. I remember watching it literally the day before you first mentioned it in this thread. Mind-reading weirdo.

Malenko's really, really hit or miss, but he definitely excels at the short WorldWide/Pro/Saturday Night/Any WCW B-Show matches. His best long matches and performances are v Ultimo at Starrcade and v Mysterio from Germany.

Malenko v La Parka? THAT I have to fucking see. Michaels/Taker can wait.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker can cut a good promo when his gimmick isn't restricted to zombie talk and three words.

There's only a few people I want to see talking for like 15-20 minutes. Austin and Vince are on that shortlist.

v Mysterio @ HH 96 was one I really enjoyed. Top rope powerbomb ftw (literally).

edit - I know, Clique. I like fucking w/Cody because I know Taker's his favorite. He bashes THE GAME all the time so I figured a little retaliation was in order.

Taker's my favorite too so I felt I had to jump in and defend him too!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, there's quite a few Taker marks in here (Cal, Redead, sabin, me) but you've got some support from your fellow Triple H marks (Starbuck & KOK).

I was about to question your taste until you admitted it was payback for a GAME slight.

Mick's recent ones were decent length. idk if they did last that long. Maybe the first Foley/Punk one did. Most of Foley's seem to stay under 10 minutes but he gets his point across immensely regardless.

I like lengthy Vince promos. The way RAW the night after King of the Ring 1998 began ruled. It was Vince yammering for 10 minutes with all of that HEAT. Then Austin came out to add on about 10 more minutes. First 30 minutes was taken up to hype the main event and it ruled. Reason why the characters in the Attitude Era were > than the majority of the matches.
