Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

Edge vs. Dolph Ziggler ****- Wow, what a awesome way to kick off the show. The Boston crowd was red hot the whole night but they were at their hottest during this match. A couple of really close falls in this match which had me really thinking if Dolph Ziggler might walk out the champion. It was overbooked torwards the end but I think that added to the match a lot. The spear stipulation also made the match unique. Great showing by both men, and even though Ziggler lost he looked great losing.

The Royal Rumble ***1/2- The first half of this match was amazing. Daniel Bryan and CM Punk were the perfect choices to start this match. All of the really athletic talented wrestlers all had the lower entry number which helped this match kicked to a tremendous start. John Morrison's elimanation saving leap to the barricade was amazing, and I was marking out really hard. The match slowed down once the Nexus got in there, but I kinda liked the Nexus dominating the Rumble. It was building up to John Cena's entry into the Rumble and Cena got a huge pop from the Boston crowd once Cena made his entrance. Up to this point this Rumble was turning out to be one of the best Royal Rumbles I have ever seen, and then Hornswoggle made his appearance and it all went downhill from there. The Hornswoggle stuff was fun for a second, but I was begging Cena or somebody to eliminate this little guy. After Hornswoggle was elimanated the action slowed down tremendously and everything started to get a little sloppy. I don't know why but torwards the end of the second half of the match everything was starting to become distorted. I will admit there was a lot of suprises torwards the end which got me on my toes, but the action was flowing right. Soo, I'll give it ****1/4 for the first half and *** for the second half. I'll give the overall match ***1/2 stars.
P.S- I marked out at the end when Santino attacked Del Rio. I really thought for a second that Santino was about to win the Royal Rumble, and it would of been one of the most ballsey moves WWE has ever done.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

I enjoyed the rumble alot actually. The start was great with Punk/Bryan/Regal and a few other guys that put on some nice exchanges. The Nexus stuff was okay, i love punk and his mannerisms so that helped it, I actually liked Cena coming out and taking out nexus, but then the Hornswaggle stuff was stupid, apart from Punk kciking him in the face, that was awesome. Booker was cool but i could'nt care less about Nash. It got better after Sheamus came in and destroyed that little midget and then it picked up again towards the end and i love Del Rio so that was a cool suprise. I enjoyed watching it but i could'nt put a rating on it, worth a watch at least if your bored or something.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

I have Edwards/Daniels at ***3/4. Great match with some nice spots but I wouldn't call it a motyc. Not enough near falls and the finish was very sudden. And for some reason I just cannot get into the HDNet matches near as much compared to ROH's actual events. Maybe it's the smaller crowd or the announcing but I just can't seem to get as interested.

I have'nt seen that match yet, but i agree, matches on the HDNet show are harder to get into. Its something to do with the quietness of the crowd and the way they light it that takes away from it IMO, even though the production is obviously better.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

Yeeeeeah I watched Ziggler/Edge again and I think it belongs here. Around the 4 snowflake territory. The crowd really made it and some of those nearfalls were red hot. Good psychology too with Dolph selling the ribs and Edge having to bust out the old moves (with Edgy names) since he couldn't use the spear. Still liked the Rumble match better.

Daniels/Edwards though...I don't know. It was very solid, which is what you always get from those two (for better or worse). But I don't think its MOTYC material.
