Triple H didn't spend the course of last year embarrassing himself by wrestling with a t-shirt on either.
No, he spent it not wrestling.
Sure, you got a couple people to agree with you, but news flash, you're still in the minority.
Intelligent people tend to be a minority. In this case it isn't even a great minority. Plenty of people, in plenty of places, have said that it wasn't a near perfect match.
Anyway, what tends to happen on message boards (especially in threads like these) is that someone posts an opinion (in this case some asterisks) and then the first people to read it go "...shit...shit...I won't be cool unless I make my opinion similar to theirs...". This goes on for a while. Then the first person who has the balls to call bullshit gets abuse, until the cavalry turn up.
I still don't understand comments like, "I might have to stop visiting this thread if you people think Triple H/Taker was that good". It's just elitist bullshit. No reason to go and try to run down people's opinions for the last few pages because they liked something you didn't.
I didn't say I didn't like it. I said that these pesky kids don't know what a fivestar match is and we'll never see another one again if people continue to accept above average matches.
I was once like you, too entrenched in ROH too see anything else beyond it. Maybe you'll wake up one day and not hold everything to the same standard as the 'almighty' ROH. Just too much of a critic to be a fan.
No, if I'm in a thread that's designed for the purpose of critiquing matches
then I'll criticise, like everyone else. Regardless of that, Taker vs. HHH wasn't a near 5* match, either in a critical sense or a mindless fun sense. You're not going to get anywhere by saying "STOP THINKING! JUST BE A FAN! SOAPBOX!".
I'm definitely not "entrenched in ROH". I've already clearly shown that to be rubbish, in previous posts on this subject.
