Bryan v Sheamus was hella fun, I loved the intentional DQ and Bryan busting out the ‘I have until FIVE!’ shtick. The finish was slightly anticlimactic but besides that no complaints, this was Sheamus’ best match since the end of last year.
I’ll steal a line from DVDVR to sum up Jericho v Punk: ‘It was either the best bad match I can remember seeing or the worst good one.’ I mean I really enjoyed it but there was something slightly off. Also jeans = street fights.
Cena v Lesnar was anarchy, the way they slowly transitioned from Lesnar’s MMA attacks into a more traditional pro wrestling kind of match was brilliant. This was like the bastard child of Mayweather v Show and Umaga v Cena and I loved it. PS: The right man won.
The WWE in 2011 has been utterly bizarre, but I’ve enjoyed it no end, mainly because of moments like this. These moments are why I still watch pro wrestling and are pretty much why I’ll be a fan for life.
