Seems this place was active once I went to bed lol.
Exactly what I thought, lol. And to respond to your part about Pyro liking Barrett. I must say I find it funny. He hates on Orton because "he talks like a robot and has no charisma" yet Barrett sounds exactly the same and should be WORLD CHAMPION~! but wont because he's English.
To leave my thoughts on some of the stuff discussed:
- Smackdown single brand PPVs were awesome in 2003, unlike 2004!
- Raw single brand PPVs are not as bad as some say here. Some are decent but yeah, few are memorable
whole way through. I can think of Backlash 04 and Vengeance 05 as awesome PPVs. Yet to go through 06, but I expect some good stuff based on the comments here.
- Orton, Batista & Cena are the best of the post-AE generation, career & talent wise. Lesnar would've been there had he stuck around a bit longer. If Edge counts, him too. From the guys around now, I only see Sheamus with the potential of getting up there, the rest are pretty bland and usually just solid ring workers, which is not exactly hard to find.
- From the 6 pack challenge, Orton > Cena > Jericho > Edge > Sheamus >>> Barrett. It was a very good match btw. I'd rate it at ***1/4.
