When did Undertaker vs Heidenreich from Survivor Series 2004 become good? Figured it was only my brother was the only one who thought it was watchable. Shelton vs Christian is good though. MOTN imo.
Survivor Series 2002 ftw.
That PPV is too, too much fun. RNN update cutting off what was to be an inspirational Shawn Michaels promo = GREAT

Said I'd get on this PPV soon and boosh. Done. I like it. I know it seems to be a polarizing event. Either you like it or you don't. I'm in the like grouping. I'm still not crazy with the layout of the event. Better wording would say the order of the matches. Nonetheless, that's neither here nor there as the event is long behind us now.
Two best matches the first time around remained the the best matches on this go. Hell in a Cell's all worked for the majority. They weren't anything near the best bunch of Cells, but watchable/solid is their range.
Taker vs Punk really was the best of the 3. Only flaw it had was it lacked time. Easy to see with about 5 more minutes it would have inched its way into the 3 star territory.
Orton vs Cena is a match I still don't find to be awful. Not gonna lie, the middle segment did lose my interest for a bit. Other than that, I'm cool with it. Fail to see how the finish is supposedly botched too. He punts him and wins. That's bad? He's done that before.
DX vs Legacy was loads better this go around. (yes, **1/4 is an improvement from where I used to think of it)
Still don't like the way it ends. DX comes back too swiftly. Legacy DESTROYED Shawn for nearly 14 minutes. As soon as H gets that cell open, done. Less than 5 minutes Legacy goes down. Meh. Would have much preferred a hot tag sort of situation with H, Legacy gaining the momentum back, then the eventual DX comeback to win. H enters the ring and Shawn is magically energized again to take them down. Not for me.
JeriShow showed their worth on this event by stealing the show. That title run was superb.
