Doesn't matter if I like a promotion or not, if a match is good then its good, regardless of where it takes place. Even the original ECW has a small handful of matches worth watching!

True, true.

Glad you appreciated it though, I've seen it get pissed on by other forums just for the ending alone. Reminds me of Taker/Bret from One Night Only. Great match! the ending-SPOILERS

*taker being trapped in the ropes.*

would probably be crucified if it happened today but the actual MATCH was one of Bret and Taker's best. Blargh I'm rambling.


You know you remember this.

Yeah I kinda did too man, my heart jumped a few times in that match because I thought storm had him especially after Storm hit that first super kick. I think some people actually bet on that match >_> At the end of the day I'm not mad because Roode is a great champion.

Fans now a days tend to try and book promotions more than actually sitting down and enjoying the product. You don't have to enjoy everything but you don't have to try and book everything to your liking either. Not everyone will like what you like. Blargh I'm rambling!

It's a nice little piece of storytelling that makes the outcome of the match, and Cena's "super" comeback, seem OK. To me, anyway.
Having Cena going over wouldn't be such a big deal if it weren't Brock's first match back, and if they hadn't set up a completely different story. I'm very big on following through on the booking you set up, or if there is a change, it had better be for a reason.

They set up a number of great possibilities, and now that's all they can be: possibilities.

This should have started a "dark period" for WWE, similar to the McMahon-Helmsley Era where the bad guys were in charge, and there was noone to stand up to them. Brock and Johnny could have taken out anyone, HHH included, and basically turned the place inside out. You could have also had Brock take the title from Punk, and brought some prestige back to the belt when someone finally takes it from Brock.

As it stands, the beatdown was just a hiccup, a bump in the road.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Am I the only one who didn't like Cena/Lesnar? It seemed like I was watching a bad take on a UFC match, and the lack of anything that wasn't a punch or elbow bothered me. I really felt the the UFC Fighter Lesnar really took away from the match, and I don't see how anyone could give it the 5*. It just seemed really dull with such lack of excitement.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

If Cena doesn't have your respect by now you're a total mark!

Fave Five

1. Chris Jericho
2. CM Punk
3. Mark Henry
4. Brock Lesnar
5. John Cena

Seriously. It's hard to not like Cena. He obviously loves his job, and he will do anything it takes for fans to get some sort of enjoyment out of it. Taking a legit assbeating from Bork Laser is proof enough.

i went back in the PPV section in the ER thread and bunch of people didn't like the "UFC style". it was quite funny to have every other post be like "this is fucking awesome" and "if i wanted to watch UFC i would watch that".
