The Perfect Storm

" VS :hhh "

JIIIIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. I'm probably the biggest fan of this match in the whole entire universe at **** 1/2 , but Brock's new MMA style is so awesome that if he and Taker announce a match for Wrestlemania XXIX you might as well just pencil it in as the MOTY because it's probably one of the only streak matches left that can pass all of the others (besides the HBK series of course , but you never ever know).

Still though, I LOVE how they have a title for the Trips-Lesnar match , makes it seem like so much more of a bigger deal. "Once in a Lifetime" sounds meh , and seeing the match being marketed as once in a lifetime got me thinking more and more that we're not getting Rock-Cena II. If we WERE, WWE probably would have had this plan in advance and PROBABLY would have waited to release the Rock-Cena DVD. God I hope

I'm also probably the only person in history who believes that CM Punk will be top 5 once everything's said and done. If he's my WOTY AGAIN in 2013 as he has been in 2011 and 2012 he'll fall just Under Taker (get it? )
You're not the only one. Punk marks stand together.

I call Danielson mark....he's the wrestler who got me into independent wrestling and caused me to stop just watching WWE in the late 1990's and 2000's. I wouldn't have gotten into japaneese, memphis, territories, etc. if I didn't become a massive danielson mark by watching him in ROH and then expanding into all types of wrestling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What I'm wondering is would Taker V Punk live up to the past 6 WM Taker matches?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well I'm gonna put it like this ; Just based off of who would be involved in the match coupled with Taker's insane Mania efforts it would be atleast **** right off the bat. Now, when you take in consideration Punk's in-ring talent and put it up against Taker's last six Mania opponents , here's the chart I seem to have ;

2011-2012 Punk > Tail End of Career HBK > 2011-2012 HHH > 2008 Edge > 2007 Batista

Yeah, so I believe Punk's run over the last 2 years is better than HBK's last two years in the WWE. If we get a 500 Day WWE Championship Reign vs The Streak storyline to couple with it, we're talking about a potential MOTD and ***** classic here to define Punk's place as a top 10 ALL-TIME WWE Superstar (in terms of in-ring) , while moving Taker closer to "GOAT" status.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Been watching a lot of Foley recently, my god I love that man. Can't wait for his set next year should be epic

Always forget just how much I love the Foley/HHH street fight from Royal Rumble, ***** for me and Foleys best match.
A few star ratings for his bigger matches

vs Taker KOTR 1998 ****3/4
vs Rock Royal Rumble 1999 ****1/2
vs HHH No Way Out 2000 ****
vs Orton Backlash 2004 ****1/2 (this match for me made Orton)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

As big of a Lesnar mark i may be, i too would like 'Taker to face Punk, or (may sound stupid), for him to face a 'smaller guy', dunno why, maybe to try and replioate the greatness of the HBK series.

Although just seeing Taker wrestle again will be enough for me, despite his opponont.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't think Taker/Punk will outdo my two favorite matches ever (the two bouts with Michaels), but that wouldn't be fair to expect that level for any of Taker's matches at this point. I know for sure Taker will do everything in his ability to make the match 'epic' and work the crowd into a frenzy like he does every year. Punk knows how big of a match this is and I think he would bring his great character work and psychology to the match to make it special too. I think Taker/Punk could potentially reach Edge/Taker level which I felt was a classic in its own right. I think it would be refreshing to see Taker work with Punk after the hardcore wars he had with Triple H.

Fucking RIGHTS. Anybody who's legacy consists of putting off great match after great match and giving it their everything physically, mentally and politically (putting EVERYBODY over) deserves to be mentioned as one of the greatest of all time. It's a sad scenario, but I don't think Foley gets as much credit as he deserves because of his tendency to put over younger guys , thus making himself look (kayfabe) weak, atleast in the eyes of the causal fan.

vs Trips RR 00 : ***** (6th greatest match ever)
vs Rock RR 99 : **** 1/4
vs Taker KOTR 98 : **** 1/4
vs Trips NWO 00 : **** 1/2
vs Orton BL 04 : **** 1/4

List of guys Foley help MAKE ; HHH, Edge, Randy Orton, The Rock, Steve Austin, Kane, Big Show, and a whole HOST of other big names. Dude is a straight up BO$$ and easily top 3 on the mic for me as well, up there with Flair and Piper.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker/Punk will suck because I'll never buy Punk as a threat to the streak. Never. Brock/Taker for Mania 29 or GTFO plz. Taker/Cena for 30. Think I'm going to wait until after Xmas and go crazy buying some blu-rays. Think I might pick up the Best Of PPV sets for 10 and 11. I'd like to get Rock's doc but I'm not paying that much money for it. Can't really think of anything else I want atm. I do intend to spend though. Just need to decide what to buy lol.
