Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Outside the matches I have on my 2013 list, I'd struggle to name many matches from PPV this year tbh. So uneventful.

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.
FINALLY someone else admits the triple threat I.c. Match was good. I couldn't have cared less about any of the three participants, but I managed to thoroughly enjoy it anyway because it was a really solid match, 3-stars for me.

Just watched the taker vs edge hiac match from summerslam 08'. That was pretty good, it's not on the same level as hbk taker, foley triple h,Batista trips, taker trips, foley taker, or even Brock vs taker, but it was still a very solid match, prolly just makes the top 10 for all hiac matches I've seen. **** in my opinion. The extra ending with taker setting up all the ladders and chokelsamming edge off them through the ring was cool, but kind of unnecessary for me. He'd already won the match and beat the living hell out of edge, I didn't see the point.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, it was a good match. Loads better than I think anyone expected it to be. Still didn't think Payback was a all that special of a show though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Dear God Cena Vs Ryback was dull as fuck.

Anywhoways, this is probably the worst year ever for Main Event matches, with Brock-Trips in the cage being the only main event bout that's anything more than mediocre, let alone FANTASTIC.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

you take away The MOTY in del rio/ziggler and the hot chicago crowd and its a DUD ppv tbh. Conversely IMO mitb 13 was one of the best ppvs of the pg era

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

MITB far > Payback for me too. MITB never fails. Tremendous franchise at this point. This year's compiled a nice slew of matches and and undercard I didn't dislike the entire way through. Only Jericho vs Ryback. That's a pretty good curve.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yup, PPV main events this year have been awful, apart from Brock/HHH in the cage - and some people hate that. Re-watched the All stars MITB match and it barely got any better, really felt like it didn't have any structure at all with no one apart from Sheamus willing to put their bodies on the line and take some legit bumps. The workers in the WHC match maybe thought they had more to prove and thus put on more of a spectacle. Axel's run-in to stop Bryan winning is just dumb too, they didn't even go anywhere with that did they? They might have had a match on Raw that I missed but that just seemed so out of place.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Nah, they didn't have a match. It was just a useless bit to have Danielson not win the match. Couldn't someone in the match have taken him out instead? RVD b/c he was the final guy Orton knocked off before winning. At least that makes some sense. Main events have easily fallen flat this year. I'm with ABH, only one I really liked was Brock vs Trips in the cage. All Stars match wasn't dreadful, however it wasn't too special. Watchable and easily the second best, but that analysis isn't too much of a compliment.
