Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is there any word on a Best of Raw/SD set for this year? Those are always some of my favorites to buy.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've had my heart set on Lesnar/Taker since his return, but I would be happy with Punk/Taker streak vs streak. Only problem is that Rock/Cena & Lesnar/Triple H rematches that come with it and I don't want to see those whatsoever.

I just feel (HOPE, it's more hope) that WWE aren't stupid enough to go with Rock/Cena again. Title or not, it's a straight forward rematch. A rematch of something they plugged to hell as once in a lifetime just 12 months earlier. They can't avoid looking bad there. And again as the main event? (Which let's be honest, if there's no Taker/Punk it will be.) The crowd will shit all over the Cena win.

Option A: Punk/Taker, Rock/Cena, HHH/Lesnar
Option B: Lesnar/Taker, Rock/Cena, Punk/HHH (or Punk/Sheamus if no Trips)
Option C: Lesnar/Taker, Rock/Cena/Punk
Option D: Punk/Taker, Rock/Cena/Lesnar
Option E a.k.a WrestleMania 30 let's do this: Cena/Taker, Lesnar/Rock, Punk/Austin

Dunno which of A-D I'd rather have tbh..


Anyway, Survivor Series:
Bonus 5v5 - ***
Divas - 1/2*
Cesaro/Truth - *1/2
Sheamus/Show - ***1/4
Foley/Ziggler 5v5 - ***
Triple threat - **3/4

Struggled to care about any of it. Worst Survivor Series since at least 2008.

I'd take B if that means Punk gets his win back

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I dont think Taker would be up for a match with Lesnar

For a start, i dont think he can handle that anymore. Lesnar would end him. And second, I dont think Taker likes Brock very much. Lesnar beat him twice and just left. for an old school guy like Taker, thats not cool

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The one thing that new guys have on their side as they rise up the ranks this time around is that John Cena is 35. That's usually the time where guys start to transition out of the FACE OF DA COMPANY role and move towards being a supporting player while a new guy steps in to hold the fort. I have no doubt that Cena will still be a huge name and play a huge role in the future but he can't be the central focus forever. Just like HHH, Taker, HBK etc stepped to the side while Cena became THE GUY, Cena too will step to the side, hopefully after putting over and anointing a new GUY and that person, whoever he is, will become the new central focus. It isn't going to be any of Punk, Orton, Seamus etc though. They are Cena's generation if you will. It's going to be somebody from the NXT (see what I did there? ) generation to take that spot. All imo of course lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Backlash 2009

ECW Championship
Jack Swagger vs. Christian
***1/4 ~ Good opener, and there were some really good near falls throughout.

Chris Jericho vs. Ricky Steamboat
*** ~ I thought this would be a total squash or just Steamboat playing it really safe. Instead we got Steamboat hitting a SUPERPLEX.

CM Punk vs. Kane
**3/4 ~ Solid match, but nothing special. Punk had some good offense.

I Quit Match
Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy
**3/4 ~ The beginning with Matt working over the legs was good, but then it turned sour with Jeff dominating the last several minutes. He just hit about four finishers and then set Matt up for a big spot. Then we got the typical I Quit Match ending, where the heel quits before the face does the big spot and the face does it anyways. Eh.

Santina Marella vs. Beth Phoenix
DUD ~ Part of the comedy angle going on. Very skippable.

WWE Championship
Legacy vs. Triple H, Batista, and Shane McMahon
*1/2 ~ The first 5 minutes were pointless and the rest of the match dragged with a few good moments here and there.

World Heavyweight Championship - Last Man Standing
John Cena vs. Edge
***1/2 ~ Really good match. Some of the sequences were great, but there was some long pauses like most LMS matches. The AA into the crowd surprised me and added to the match. There wasn't that much weapons involved, and I really can't decide if that is good or bad.

Overall, a thumbs in the middle but mostly down. Nothing is really worth seeing excepting the opener and main event.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

And Lesnar will do the return job that he was supposed to do at Judgment Day 2004.

Speaking of which, has Lesnar ever taken a Tombstone Piledriver? He only faced Biker Taker and then, the Last Ride was his finisher.
