Rollins vs HHH was quite terrible (as are most son-in-law matches), but I did have a question about it.

Are rope breaks allowed in Unsanctioned, No DQ and No holds barred matches?

As far as I know, rope breaks are meaningless as you cant get disqualified if you dont break the hold.

It was not "quite terrible" at all. It just wasn't the best match on the show.

I skipped this match after I saw Triple H come out on his motorized tricycle with a police unit and Stephanie weighed down on the back by I imagine what were her fresh botox injections.

Who in the world gives a green light for an entrance like that that is meant for someone who is supposed to be a badass??

They may as well call it a "Hunter's rules" match since he's the only one going around having these "distinguished" street fights.

Rope breaks can't be traditionally enforced through ref count, but they will break occasionally. It doesn't make sense, and I'm not gonna try figuring it out, but it happens.

Come on people. Can we keep the thread on point?

The rules are really unclear, but I think in essence it's just a standard No DQ match.

I was hoping we'd see a bit more to fit in with the 'unsanctioned' theme. Maybe add a plain clothes referee (since none of the official referees would be allowed to officiate.) A piledriver or protected chair shot to the head would have been cool as a one-time deal. I would have enjoyed little touches like this.

Only decent match in the second half, it's basically a No DQ match with a release of liability attached to it.

Match was kinda disappointing, I was expecting more objects to be used, more "aggressiveness". But yea no, there are no rope breaks in no DQ matches.

No, the rope break can't actually be enforced. They just follow the rules in certain circumstances to tell a story. It's just like Bray Wyatt could have retained his title by staying outside the ring for a count out when it was at 9, but he came back in. You have to accept some illogical things to happen in wrestling.

The chair shot to the head rule & pile driver rules are not like the rules on blood because of a PG environment. Those moves are banned because they can permanently injure a guy. A little blood or a curb stomp would have been ok, but no need to bring in those serious risk moves.

Hell are you talking about? It was the second best match of the show.

well it was better than HHH vs Reigns weaker than Bryan vs HHH.
I think this was okay especially the pedigree sequence was great. and the best of it only one pedigree (finisher) ended the match.
match had great spots too i just think that this whole "leg injury" storyline harmed the match.
***3/4 from me.

There are no such things as rope breaks in No DQ or Unsanctioned matches.

And as far as Rollins vs. HHH goes, it was very good. It was just in the middle of a long ass show and took it’s time to get there.

It was a pretty good match lol.

Just that Seth Rollins base too much of his moves on leg attacks so they shouldnt have played out that leg injury angle too quickly in the match. A smarter thing for Rollins to do would have been to try out other ground based moves or even better, use more weapon shots considering its allowed.

I personally would have preferred that they used weapons a bit more often (just like how I would have preferred Reigns vs Taker).
