I mean, I like a story being told in the ring as much as the next guy, but I don't literally need the wrestlers yelling the story to me as if I'm too stupid to get it unless they say it verbally.
Agreed. There was much to like about it, and it was brutal in several places, but the less-is-more approach would have worked wonders. I liked that Michaels wanted the match finished when HHH began with the chair shots, but it got old really quickly.

Taker/HHH strikes me the same way a lot of Oscar Contenders do: You feel great coming out of it, and you rave, but then you notice the flaws once you start to think about it. The big emotional moments were a bit too obvious, there was a lot of obvious characterization etc. At the end of it, you feel the same way you felt about "American Beauty" or "Ordinary People."

I really don't think HHH/Taker, will age well.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Wrestlemania 28

HHH vs Taker
I'm not sure of my rating, but I enjoyed the flying fuck out of this. That's all I have to say at the minute. Very hard match to put a rating on. How the fuck can anyone say this wasn't as good as last years match (which was actually shit)??? Explain why last years match was better because this had much better action and a much better story was told throughout the match. Yes it had it's flaws, but fuck me if I didn't love watching it.

Punk vs Jericho
Great match. A little dissapointing, but still great, which shows how high my expectations were. Very good chemistry and awesome counters. Jericho's back work was great. I thought the added stip and story (which only came in to play at the start) really took away from the start of the match but it soon picked up. ****

Cena vs Rock
I fucking loved this too. The match itself had some structuring issues, there was a portion that could have been cut out, but for the majority it was fucking great to watch. Rocky delivered, the crowd was awesome, Cena was superb with his facial expressions as well as being in control for the first half of the match. Awesome near falls too, and the crossbody counter in to the AA was fucking great and I marked big time at several points in the match. No, not the greatest match ever, but a very good match and damn if the big time feel, crowd and false finishes didn't suck me in to this.
****

I'm going to watch the SITS shows tomorrow. I'm going in with very low expectations because I watched the first half of Night 1 and it was dull as hell. I'm looking forward to this Davey/Elgin match but I honestly can't fathom a current Davey Richards ROH match rated anywhere near ****1/2 stars.

****1/2

Far better then any of the crap I watched at WM which is a shame. Crowd was awful at WM imo.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I thought the crowd was great for Taker/HHH and Cena/Rock, but they were god awful for Punk/Jericho which was a damn shame, definitely would have made a really good match even better.

Also, the Punk/Henry match that just happened on RAW was a very good tv match.

I guess I just expected more from the crowd during Rock vs Cena, I thought for sure it would reach the levels of Cena vs Punk 1 or Rock vs Hogan but not even close.
