Nothing makes me want to skip a match faster than "OMG GREATEST MATCH OF ALL TIME"

LOL.

The last fall was great. It was epic. The stuff after the match was great.

But......IT WAS 2 OUF OF 3 FALLS. Why is everyone ignoring this? There were 3 falls. And you have to judge a match as a whole. Meaning I have to judge this match for all 3 falls.

And the first 2 falls were nothing. They just existed. They didn't compliment the final fall. They were slow. They were plodding. They were half speed. And they took away from the match.

I liked it, but I don't think that it was even the best match on that show TBH.* WALTER vs. Dunne and Riddle vs. Dream were both better imo.

Now as far as great MOMENTS go, yeah Johnny finally paying off his NXT story and "winning the big one" was really great.* And no, I don't think that the "super-Cena" comparisons are valid personally.

Dave's been a huge fan of Johnny for a long time. Johnny vs. Andrade did get the first 5* match from him in WWE since Cena vs. Punk in 2011 after all.

I really don't like using the term "THE greatest" ever for anything personally. Because it's so subjective what constitutes "great" and there's such an enormous catalog to choose from, I prefer to say "ONE of the greats" or "a classic" etc.

I hate matches with one hundred thousand finisher kick outs.

You just created the wrestling equivalent of the dilemma "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
