I like AJ Vs Kaitlyn more because it was aggressive, in your face, and knew exactly what it wanted to be; if those two went at it on every PPV I wouldn't be disappointed as they have some INSANE chemistry in terms of diva work.

Randall Viper All Star Who Doesn't Bump Vs Big Show has been extremely underwhelming thus far.

I think the purpose for that match was to entertain the audience, who else was punk gonna wrestle at that ppv? They weren't gonna waste punk Brock for a b ppv, and they also definitely weren't gonna have a ppv in Chicago with punk not on the card. So in the match they just told a simple story about punks ring rust and Jericho not willing to allow punk to claim he's "the best in the world" without proving it. I think it would have worked better if Jericho won, the fact that the ending was so predictable is I think what turned a lot of people off. I will give you that during the first 5 min or so of the match, both guys def appeared to be on cruise control, but after that the pace picked up considerably IMHO.

Ziggler del rio undoubtedly told the better story, but for in ring back and forth action, I think punk Jericho was better by a small margin. Anyways, that's my story and I'm sticking to it, haha.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So, going into the Last Man Standing match w/ Ryback and Cena at the moment and I can honestly say that December to Dismember is better at this point... At least that show had the awesome tag match opener.

Hoping it gets better.

This year has been HORRIBLE for PPV action to be completely honest, as Royal Rumble might be my pick for the absolute WORST show of the last ten years while Elimination Chamber was a complete one match show, as was Payback and Extreme Rules (if Brock/HHH holds up). Money in the Bank was a well rounded card with a lackluster main event, while Wrestlemania was okay/goodish.

Which is interesting because last year a report came out that said Vince wanted all the work to go into PPV and basically wasn't putting much effort into Raw/Smackdown. He just hoped people wouldn't be so put off by TV that they'd watch the PPV. I'm pretty sure that was last year.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I liked Extreme Rules. I haven't seen Payback yet and probably won't unless I'm bored out of my skull one day. I don't care about Ziggler or Del Rio and a thrown together Punk/Jericho match does nothing for me. PPV has been pretty shitty this year though. Outside 4 matches, nothing has passed the 4* mark and I currently don't have anything ranked higher than ****1/4. It's been all TV and even still I have nothing past ****1/4. TV has been consistent as hell and lots more fun too considering you don't have to pay for it. Shield and Bryan rule the 2013 world.

Can't forget about Antonio Cesaro. He is par on with Daniel Bryan as far as consistency goes.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cesaro hasn't completely won me over just yet. When he's against somebody interesting I'll watch but he isn't like Bryan who has reached the point where I'll watch his matches no matter who he's in there with. If Cesaro gets some more promotion, a storyline and a couple of big matches to his name, then I'll put him up there but for now it's Bryan and the Shield in rarefied air atm. Unfortunately the Shield have gone a bit cold recently but their work up to Mania/ER was godly.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Shield as far as workrate goes are still in a pedestal since the Usos feud began. Tbh I'd give the 6-Man Tag vs Usos & :henry1 around ***1/4.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Payback is PPV of the year so far for me. Awesome Del Rio/Ziggler match, great Punk/Jericho match, best divas match in a long time, great IC Title triple triple threat, good Shield tag, and overall it far exceeded any expectations I had for it.

ER sucked (didn't help the main event was poor and the best match of the nightwasn't even great), Mania was a one match show, EC was pretty good but no standout matches, RR was meh, and MITB was a mixed bag. All-star MITB ladder match sucked, but the WHC MITB Ladder match is in my top 3 of the year, and one of the best MITB's imo. Definite top 5 and maybe even top 3. Cena/Henry was poor, but Ziggler/Del Rio was great. AJ/Kaitlyn was decent but nowhere near their PB bout. Jericho/Ryback was meh, and the rest I'm kinda fuzzy on.

I'm watching you...
