So Wrestlemania just ended. Here are the results in spoilers in case you missed it:
Spoiler:

But enough of all that. Because you came here to talk about wrestling. And according to everyone I've ever talked to, the best wrestling occurred on Monday nights.

THIS IS NITRO!

7tlbMj19PzlWrdI.jpg

FEATURING THE BEST IN CRUISERWEIGHTS!



BEST IN MIDCARD WRESTLERS!



AND THE BEST IN HEAVYWEIGHTS!



ALSO THEY HAD A BOMB-ASS SHOW ON THURSDAYS CALLED THUNDER THAT I'M SURE EVERYONE WATCHED BECAUSE IT WAS AWESOME!



So let's talk about WCW and not how much we hated the latest WWE PPV. You can even talk about TNpffffhahahahahaha I can't even finish this oh god they're so bad. Also talk about Brodus Clay and the ramifications of keeping a Funkasaurus in captivity.

AND I WENT OUT OF MY WAY TO PUT THIS BACK ON YOUTUBE. YOU ARE WELCOME.

    Just saw all of the Taker/HHH match. Holy shit that was worth the price of the PPV alone. I think it deserves 5 stars or at least close to it just for the storytelling alone. So good.

    Seriously they better not have HHH/HBK after this. All three guys walking out at the end was such a perfect moment.

    Oh yeah one more thing I have to applaud Michael Cole for being more restrained and respectful than his usual self, especially regarding his treatment of JR and Finkel. Let's have more of this in the future please.

    Or it is the best thing ever and you are just jealous. It has the right mix of:

    Great match.
    Jericho.
    Hilarious WCW moments.
    Thunder.
    La Parka.

    Winning combination.

    It lacks one of the best crossovers and greatest promotions of wrestling ever. Which is far more relevant to what happened today/yesterday than WCW's garbage.

    Other than the Bryan thing did you think the show was really that bad up till HiaC? Orton/Kane and Cody/Show wasn't bad and I didn't mind Show getting the IC title. Cody better move on to the main event after he heals up though.

  • KurnDerakKurnDerak Registered User regular
    The one question I have is: Was JR promoting a new Thesaurus during the HHH/Taker match or something?

    As previously said, HHH/Taker was worth the price. The wrestling I would say was a bit better than last year, but with the story and the inclusion of Shawn Michaels it instantly became my favorite match of the night.

    I wish they hadn't added in the whole Jericho doing personal attacks on Punk's family angle. It would have been such a wonderful match with just those two going at it, instead of wasting the first part with Jericho trying to get punk to DQ himself. Except for Jericho demanding punk hit him in the head with the chair, that was entertaining. Though me and my brother agreed, Punk doesn't have to hand over the title to Jericho if he kills him with a chair shot.

    I know he used noxious for something, don't remember exactly what. Then there was the leg drop on the apron. Wish I wasn't so tired so I could remember how he called those moves.

    I mentioned this in the previous thread but Bryan/Sheamus just goes to show the WWE really doesn't care what the IWC thinks about it. Whomever made the decision to have that match go 18 seconds had to realize that every internet page, forum, message board, whatever would absolutely hate it yet they went on and did it anyway.

  • NiryaNirya THE NEXT STAGE IN E-BO-LUTIONRegistered User regular
    Well, I think I did fairly well, unless EBM is one of those crazies that picked Kane and the Rock to win. Other than that I was basically solid.

    From the sounds of things the motivation was less to bury Bryan and give a middle finger to the people who enjoyed this:

    ...and more to have the whole "shortest title loss at a WrestleMania" thing. Which, ok, I get that.

    ...but the Cody Rhodes/Big Show match is RIGHT THERE. Having Cody lose in an embarrassingly short amount of time would be a great way to payoff the angle with Big Show, a man I could legitimately believe could end a match in 20 seconds. Instead they started off the show by shitting on fans excited to see a good match and then paraded out a train of awful until about half-way through the Taker/HHH match.

    Not really silly, it did set a bad tone that one of the major title matches was resolved in less than a minute at the start of the show.

    Have you ever thought that maybe these kind of knee-jerk reactionary WWE Defense Force generalizations miiiiight be part of the reason you don't get to make threads?

    Well before this thread starts to stink of Goose lets get back to what really matters in 2012...WCW :

    Actually, Kane/Orton on paper could've main-evented all day long, but ended up being almost as insignificant and uninteresting as the divas tag match. And Show/Rhodes was only good to see Big Show finally get his WrestleMania binky. Wrestling-wise, it was a mediocre match at best.

    I've seen that, and it would be far more tolerable if they'd looped more than one "YES!"

    As it stands, it's just awful.
