Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I only watched Sheamus/Show and the Foley/Ziggler elimination match. The former was pretty good (***1/4) and the latter was a huge let down since I expected more and the match itself was just pretty boring. (**)

Didn't watch anything else and have no plans of doing so any time soon. That's all I can help with.

Well, it was alot better than I expected it to be. First match went about 20-25 minutes I think and featured some great work from Tyson Kidd. Sheamus continued to impress in his match with Big Show, delivering the electric chair to him as well as White Noise with relative ease. The Team Foley/Team Ziggler match went slower than expected, but with a fun finish. The main event was what I was expecting, until that killer ending. Yowza!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really enjoyed the opener but it might just be the Kidd/Gabriel fan in me. And by might I mean probably.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Survivor Series on a first watch for me was probably the worst PPV I've seen live in a pretty long time. Nothing classic, one match that I'd consider to be "great quality" , while we were fed a very unsatisfying main event. If this is where we're headed after all of the amazing main event type matches we've had earlier in the year, I'm going to be SUPER-pissed.

Worst PPV since Bragging Rights 2010 for me actually (I do believe). I'm praying I can say more about it after a re-watch but I'm not overly optimistic.

They got some big arse shoes to fill after SilverVision.
The fuck are these guys? Never heard of them but they had better provide the same quality of service as SilverVision. No idea why the hell they ended that partnership tbh. SV were perfect. Ah well. I'm wondering though, can you play Region 1 Blu-Ray's on a PS3 in the UK? Just in case lol.

I have Survivor Series downloaded. I watched the attack at the end but nothing else yet. I'm wondering if it's even worth my time tbh. Still haven't watched Cena/Punk NOC. Maybe I'll watch that instead lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Australian ones will work but I don't know how they work out price wise.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rey Mysterio ; Superstar Collection

vs Chris Jericho (Bash 09) : **** 1/2
vs Dolph Ziggler (Night of Champions 09) : *** 1/2
vs Batista (Cage ; SD 10) : *** 1/2
vs CM Punk (Over the Limit 10) : ****

For like 7 bucks, this was an extremely solid pickup. The match vs Jericho at the Bash is the second best match of 2009 (but not even CLOSE to Taker-HBK like some very insane people say) with tons of callbacks to previous matches , great pacing and all of that jazz. vs Ziggler is an awesome match in it's own right with Ziggler playing the pretty boy/cocky heel perfectly to Rey's little man offense. How every single one of Ziggler's counter's is into a "show-off" type move is great.

The Batista match is all storytelling, with Batista systematically destroying Rey and beating him senselessly until Mysterio gets an opening and takes the match. Batista challenging Rey to do the 619 on him in the cage, only for Rey to leapfrog over Batista and almost escape is an awesome moment (and anything out of the normal cage formula is great for me). The Punk match is fucking AWESOME and perhaps their best match together, with a fantastic pace (like most Rey/Punk matches) and some awesome callbacks to their previous matches.

Overall, for such a cheap price this one is definitely worth checking out as you get an all-time classic, one of the best matches of 2010, and two *** 1/2 matches as a nice side piece. Obviously at like 82 minutes in length it isn't the greatest DVD in the world but I'm a huge fan of these little bargain DVDs that this is going to get a great score from me . (I'M RATING IT AS A ONE DISC BASICALLY)

7/10 (Recommended)

Funny you should mention that Starbuck, watching NOC 12 right now actually, can't wait to rewatch the Cena-Punk match that fluctuates from **** 1/4 to **** 1/2 everytime I think about it, getting a definitive opinion now. God that opening 4 way is underwhelming, loving the second match though, good shit.
