Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread
Edge vs Rey Mysterio vs Kane vs Wade Barrett vs Drew McIntyre vs Big Show - Elimination Chamber Match - World Heavyweight Championship - Elimination Chamber 2011
Really suprised at how good this was as it looked quite weak on paper but they managed to make a really exciting match out of it. Match was sorta just chugging along until Drew came in and starting ripping shit up. His rampage of destruction was sooo good. The Barrett and Rey pod spots were awesome too. Show being the suprise entrant was underwhelming but at least I knew it was gonna be a let down of sorts. Show was fine in the match though and the Show/Barrett segment with Show getting Barrett on his own at last was great. Kane getting the monster push rather than Drew or Barrett seemed a massive waste as Kane wont benefit from it one bit. The spear spot to eliminate Kane was nice. The Edge/Rey climax wasn't as good as 09 but it was still really good. The 1st spear kickout was an awesome near fall because it's still a credible finisher somehow. 619 kickout didn't have the same effect as it was obvious after the spear kickout but the final spear looked great and compensated perfectly for the other spear not being enough. Edge looked good without awful booking making him look stupid and Rey looked better than he has in a while. Barrett and Show were good, Kane was meh and Drew was fantastic. Think he might be my favourite guy atm. Was thinking during the match it'd be awesome for him to get a main event push and face guys like Edge, Rey & Taker this year on PPV but then I remembered Ziggler and went back to wanting him on Superstars against guys like Masters, Tatsu, Smith and Goldust. Tons of great spots, all 3 pod spots were awesome and better than anything in the Raw Chamber. WWE MOTY so far. The aftermath with Christian and Del Rio was awesome. Christian going to town on Del Rio was great. Wasn't a fan of the ring crew doing the chamber back up during all of this though but whatever. Wasn't anywhere near as bad as them showing a replay whilst Edge speared Del Rio. I mean everyone knew that spot was coming but the guy in the truck it seemed. I'd be much more interested in a 3 way with Christian than just Edge sv Del Rio. It's not gonna main event and they seem to like doing a big singles main event match and then a 3 way in recent years so it seems likely to happen.
