That was mad that last match up people saying it was too extreme lol. sick PPV though
They were just sat there like spare parts
Wasn't too bad, guy has blood dripping all down him. Looks good enough.
Was a very good PPV to be fair. 2 EXCELLENT matches by any standards with Bryan/Sheamus and Punk/Jericho. Should be interesting to see where they go from here, especially with Cena taking some time off. Hope they have a draft and get some guys back in the picture, Miz should got to SD and build himself back up.
Lesnar and Cena did a great job of making Lesnar look like a monster heel. The crowd was turning more and more against Lesnar as the match went on.
Still I'd like to see more wrestling moves as rezzy said, but I guess this was extreme rules so....
Doubt we'll see Lesnar for a few weeks. He's been on what, 3 Raws and a ppv and only has around 30-35 dates between now and WM.
The next time we see him I reckon we'll see 'angry' Lesnar squash about 5 guys like only he can.
One more thing, if Cena is taking time off it would have been a better idea to have Lesnar completely smash him, and leave him dead in the ring. Then Lesnar is seen as the guy for a while, and when Cena comes back they have a rematch with Cena winning.
Then if after WM Lesnar wants to stick around they could book a huge fued around "Cena vs Lesnar III".
I think Cena leaving after winning makes some sense. They will probably use Lesnar to smash eveyone in the wwe for months and destory everyone, then Cena will come back as the one guy who can beat Lesnar as he's done it before etc. That's what i'm guessing anyway
That or he'll say he had Cena beat but the ref wasn't there and they'll leave it at that, and Cena faced The Rock at Summerslam.
Just got back from the pub showing the PPV i was very impressed with the PPV actually, Sheamus V Bryan was awesome, Bryan is quickly becoming a favourite of mine and rightly so (i hated him previously) and of course Punk V Y2J was one of the best matches of the year, in fact could be match of the year.
The rest of the matches were alright not many massive spots or highlights until of course we come to the main event.
First off i'll say i hate Cena as a character and as a wrestler but as a company man and a entertaining he has to gain a massive amount of respect and credit, the bloke sacrifices a shed load for the WWE.
But sadly from the second Lenser busted Cena's head open i knew the obvious outcome of the match and it disappointed me so very much. Even when they are trying to give him some much deserved time of they still resort to the super Cena the majority of us hate so much, even though he used his 'chain' to help pick up the win. Would have been better to kill him off then give him some time off and have him come back with vengeance etc, but no, same old same old. Although full credit for him for taking a pounding not many people would take that for the company etc.
But i do start to wonder that even though Cena seems to be the perfect company guy could it in fact be him not wanting to take losses against guys ala Hulk Hogan? I'd like to think not but sometimes i do wonder, anyone else share that feeling or is just me?
p.s. i have Bryan and Punk Beard envy
i have not watched wwf/wwe or what ever its called now since the late 80s early 90s but seen the ppv ad last night and was tempted but never did is there any sites that stream it or have ready to watch for after?
Raw on tonight - missed the PPV. Triple H has been confirmed - I hope he's going to fire Laryngitis - the boy is a charisma vacuum.
Not staying up for Raw, the game drained me.
Gonna record it, might watch NXT though - Regal just might cheer me up.
Watching Afterburn - anyone else think Great Khali looks like the result of Carlos Tevez falling into Asterix's magic potion?
Tonight gets worse - No Regal on NXT tonight he's been replaced with HORNSWOGGLE!!!!!!!
Raw last night was interesting to say the least.
Made up that Bryan gets the title shot, especially against Punk those two have the potential to have some classic matches especially with the two of them perhaps being the best in ring workers around at the moment. I'd imagine a fatal four way between Punk, Bryan, Y2J and Ziggler would be one in a million.
Anyway from the good stuff onto the bad.. the Cena angle.
Why do they insist on making him the underdog over and over, other than who the controlling power is this storyline is no different really from the Nexus storyline and the obvious outcome will be Cena defeats all against the odds. It again shows how stale he and whomever is responsable for writing his angles are.
Also found this with regards to Lesner: http://www.lordsofpain.net/news/wwe/Brock_Lesnar_Goes_Ballistic_Backstage_At_Extreme_Rules.html
No one answered my question from my last post so i'll offer it again: Does anyone think Cena might be a bit of a Hulk Hogan in not wanting to take falls to guys?
Regarding Cena, I think he'd do what's right for business either way. But it's Vinnie Mac's intent to have Cena as the new Hogan and no one can talk him out of it.
Not surprised Brock is p*ssed - losing to Cena was a monumentally stupid decision (up there with playing Park and Giggs against City, stupid) they did well to get his momentum back by killing Triple H.
Yeah it does seem Vince and the writing staff are clearly turn him super human, unlike Hogan i kinda doubt Cena holds much weight when it comes to Vince and having his say over other guys in the dressing room, but i often wonder.
Yeah i wonder if that promo was a shoot from Cena as he genuinely believed he was injured, if so thats a pretty big disrespect to broke and i agree losing to Cena was a bad move.
From what I see, Cena appears to be a decent bloke - Hogan was (and is) an out and out self promoting piece of sh*t. His autobiography is the greatest work of fiction since the Harry Potter series.
Was actually a decent RAW, shit was being flung all over the place. Half the things that happened nobody expected. Which is great in my opinion!
But still think there should be more TLC matches or alteast table matches. Bring back the Dudleys!
Oh and start using Ziggler more often, he'd be a great champion. The bumps he takes are brilliant, no other wrestler at the moment takes them like him!
Cena is the dream man Vince always wanted. He's a huge star, is a nice, company guy + is extremely loyal. Look at all the other 'main' guys Vince has had:
Hogan: Huge star, but a prick with a massive ego. Cares too much about money.
Ultimate Warrior: Huge ego, cared only about money
HBK: Prick. Wasn't a monster draw
Bret Hart: Wasn't a monster draw, cared about money
Stone Cold: Questioned Vince all the time and argued his case. Was not a company guy.
The Rock: Left after 7 years.
Cena: Loyal, hard working, a good public figure, won't ever leave ect.
Vince finally has his dream guy.
Lesnar pissed off:
