My Journey > > Heartbreak and Triumph ....... It's not even a comparison to me really.

Anyways, this might be a completely sacreligious thing to say on a Wrestling Forum, but in terms of pure consistent greatness on a main event level , Punk 2011-2012 is one of those runs where you look at it in a few years and say "Yeah, that was a fucking AWESOME main event run" , up there with runs such as HBK in 96-97 and HHH in 00-EARLY 01. To be honest , Lesnar from 02-4 was an AMAZING run as well in terms of his main event matches.

When it comes to pure consistency over the last decade (since 2002) I'd easily give the nod to Mysterio as the best, but as the best main event performer it's have to be the likes of Taker/HHH/HBK/Cena/Punk/Lesnar/Benoit . I'd do a top 5 (and I will off the top of my head later) , but I need to look at every MAIN (meaning going on last) event of the last 10 years to see who the best performers are

Lmao not at all. Wow the old stuff is great. I need to pick this up.

Problem with Punk's run is that despite the matches being great for the most part, they weren't the main event 90% of the time. His title reign has been in the shadows until recently.

Yeah, it has a great match listing and some pretty good interview segments in between each match with Cole interviewing him before each match. The documentary part of "Heartbreak & Triumph" is much better. But the match listing for the "My Journey" DVD is better. It's a "must own," IMO.

I almost bought it a couple of times, Greg. Didn't know the matches at the time though. Now I wished I had it.

Yeah, and don't know how it could be considered sacreligious either since a lot appreciate what Punk can do inside the ring.

Mysterio was consistent as hell. Not until this year has he really slowed down. He doesn't get mentioned much, but I love Rey's chemistry with JBL. I think they feed off of each other really well. Lots of fun whenever they duke it out. No Mercy 2005 being the one I guess some could easily check out due to it on PPV. That was my favorite match on that show, tbhayley.

Speaking of No Mercy 05, any thoughts on Batista/Eddie? **3/4-*** from me. It seemed like a poor mans version of Lesnar/Eddie, and they never really kicked into the second gear, plus a spinebuster instead of the Batista Bomb to end the match was kind of lame I thought.

Eddie tried his best. For that I commend him. Never found the bout too appealing. Batista was still so meh at that time, pardon the blinding exception that is the epic Hell in a Cell vs The Game.

No, I'll say "I'm willing to take a bullet to the brain than witness this ever again".

Backlash 2005:

Shelton Benjamin vs Chris Jericho - ****
- Absolutely awesome work by both men. The end sequence with the roll-up counters was a great ending, the athletic spot with Shelton leaping to the rope and doing a superplex was awesome and the whole match in general was highly enjoyable. Would have worked better a bit if there was a clear heel here. For the build-up, I thought Jericho was the heel since he was constantly a dick but fans cheered him over Shelton here. Well, we got a great match and that's all that matters!

William Regal/Tajiri vs The Heart Throbs vs La Resistance vs Hurricane/Rosey vs Simon Dean/Maven - **3/4
- A nice tag team turmoil match while it lasts. Nothing memorable and nothing bad, just decent and it's... just there. Oh and Hurricane and Rosey win this to a nice pop at the end.

Edge vs Chris Benoit - ***3/4
- They never had an official, big feud involving titles or anything but Benoit might be Edge's best opponent. First their awesome post-WM21 match and now this very good Last Man Standing blow-off. Edge obviously gets the win as he's the MITB holder and the next breakout star after Batista & Cena here. Both men do a great job, there are some memorable spots like the suicide dive, superplex into a trashcan, German Suplex from top of the ladder and a brick being used to put Benoit down after responding to two Spears, which protects him well in defeat. As usual, Benoit gets a standing ovation post-match despite losing. That's how much respect fans had for this man!

Kane vs Viscera - *1/2
- Viscera & Trish's little affair was more interesting than this. They are such an odd pair here yet their restaurant skits worked pretty well. As for the match, it sucks. Then post-match Viscera & Trish officially have their "break up" and Viscera squashes Trish with a splash to a bunch of "Mabel" chants.

Hulk Hogan/Shawn Michaels vs Muhammad Hassan/Daivari - ***1/4
- A very nice tag match with an electric crowd that goes crazy for the returning Hogan. Nothing much otherwise but it's entertaining to watch while it lasts and despite being there to just look stupid for Hogan and the fans, Muhammad Hassan and Daivari didn't look overly weak which was good.

Batista vs Triple H - ***1/4
- Slightly better than their Wrestlemania match but not by much. A bit shorter which helps it, crowd is more into it and there's a bit of story to this with HHH making the Pedigree out to be the "be all end all" for him to regain the title. Then he manages to do it on Batista only for Mike Chioda to oversell a clothesline which results in no counts being made and the defeat being unclean this time. Batista wins again although there's a bunch of unneeded shenanigans while it happens.

Overall: ***1/4 out of ***** (Not a bad PPV at all. A couple of great matches and other decent stuff with only one dud. And the non-wrestling stuff aren't bad either. Chris Masters' Masterlock challenge was unintentionally hilarious and mostly because I go and read the forum stuff all over the net said back in 2005 and the hate Masters gets far surpasses anything else I've witnessed including Cena hate. And Christian also cuts a nice little rap before the main event. It's a shame they dropped the ball with him like that. Should have been a main eventer by this point, really.)

Jericho vs Shelton was face vs face only with both of them getting personal in the weeks leading up. Jericho showed the edge in the program. Although the crowd for Backlash was much more pro-Jericho, haha. Stellar match. I'm with you on that.

I loved that Last Man Standing. It gets **** from me. Worked out incredibly well, imo.

Rest is whatever. Oh, but I mark like a little kid for Hurricane & Rosey winning since I'm such a big Gregory Helms fan. I HATE the Hogan tag.

Have both Edge/Benoit and Jericho/Benjamin at ****. Is this the best 1-2 punch to open up a PPV ever ? I'm not sure I can think of another PPV where we start off with 2 consecutive **** matches TBH. I LOVED the Hogan tag when I first saw it ... But YEAH ... It's shit (although it was a huge deal at the time). DAT TISTA-TRIPS match is severely underrated IMO, I fucking love that match and would give it *** 3/4.

AHHHH, No Mercy 2005... What an underappreciated show. The 3 biggest matches on the card are all great, with REY-JBL being fun as they always are with a hilarious storyline behind it (watch the SD promo where JBL comes out with a poncho and a sombrero) , Taker-Ortons being a classic and the second best casket match ever (MOTN) , with the main event being a complete carry job with Eddie getting a **** match out of big Dave with how FUCKING awesome he was. I don't like to speculate much, but I'm willing to bet we would have gotten a Taker-like older Eddie, basically meaning that his matches would SOMEHOW have gotten better even after all of these years, especially since his character rocked at this point and his new theme music was SEX and all that jazz.
