Get REALLY excited for Extreme Rules. One of the best WWE PPVs of all time imo (or at least of this decade).

Unfortunately, 2012 was a really weak year for PPV so you're not in for much else to speak of. I thought Summerslam was good as a whole but the main event was weak.

Summerslam 2012 was underwhelming as hell. Not one standout match on the entire card. And yes, HHH vs. Brock Lesnar was deplorable.

No, there was nothing overly great on the card, but I enjoyed Jericho/Ziggler in the opener (actually was my MOTN), Bryan/Kane was good, Miz/Mysterio was good, Sheamus/Del Rio was solid with a weird finish, and the WWE Title was worked extremely well before the odd finish. I would personally rather have a show with a bunch of good matches instead of one with a great one and then nothing else to really speak of, know what I mean? I'd take 2012 over 2010 and 207 any day of the week.

Sweet, thanks for the heads up. So 2012 is when The Shield debuted? Around what time did they show?

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread (And Stairs)

Shield debuted @ Survivor Series 2012.

SummerSlam 2012 is a two match show; Sheamus vs Del Rio & Punk vs Cena vs Show. Danielson vs Kane is decent, but that's about it.

2012 is a super shit year, tbhayley.

I won't spoil the actual moment, but it's late in the year.

Sweet, hopefully I'll find some stuff throughout this year I like. 2010 and 2011 were decent at best, not much stood out to me that I really really liked. Hopefully 12 and 13 are better. Looking forward to seeing more of Bryan and Brock back. I'm pretty sure I read at some point Evolution reformed? Generally speaking, how was that? Did Batista make a return at some point? Anything memorable or noteworthy with him?

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread (And Stairs)

The Evolution reformation was a bust, if you ask me. Maybe it popped for some others, but the segments were eh unless The Shield was making me care here and there. At least their whole goal was to put The Shield over, despite the eventual crumble. Matches were very, very dull. Which was indicative of Trips & company trying to make The Shield work their match, not the other way around.

EDIT: Noteworthy 2014 Batista stuff was mostly only the Triple Threat @ WM vs Orton & Danielson and a singles match vs Sheamus on SD. They had two iirc, but it was their second outing that was good. I should find you a date to be sure. My two cents, avoid the Batista vs Dolph tripe. The No DQ match in particular is a train-wreck.

Survivor Series 2012. Not sure if you plan to carry onto 2013: but of course 2013 ring-wise was marvelous and imo. one of the company's banner ring years. The Shield's awesome consistency is a big part of that.
