My comments, I might check out Christian/Orton and the rest sounded weak. Its not like I said well this match was terrible blah, blah without seeing it. I am just going by word of mouth like the word of mouth from every review I have seen including this one here that pointed out the laminess of Cena taking a beating then locks on a STFU for the win.
I picked it to see if WWE would surprise me, they really didn't. I am bored with the WWE right now and I would rather see a trainwreck via WCW 2000 then the blandness of 2007-2011 WWE.
And to stick to topic which again, you thread jacked just to bash people. Anyone want to guess the buyrate of this PPV? I am think 110,000.

Power of the people.
John Cena's winning that title for all his fans in the arena and watching at home. He doesn't care if he gets beat up or hurt, as long as he can make his fans happy by "bringing home the gold". It's worth it to him.
Miz is winning the title for himself. He's not going to risk breaking his neck or getting choked out by staying in the STF for too long when the only person he's letting down is himself. No one's rooting for him and if he quits now, he can always get another shot at the title later. If he's seriously injured by staying in the STF too long, then his career might be over. Or he might die.
If I fought you in front of all your friends and family and a couple really hot girls, you would keep getting up as long as everyone's still cheering for you. You would probably get hurt, but it would be worth it not to let down the people important to you. If I fought you at some random night club where no one knows you and everyone's telling you that you suck and to just give up, would you really fight that hard? What's the point? No one there likes you anyway, might as well go home and save yourself the injuries.

My point - and I apologise for the wall of single entendre behind which it was hidden - is that you not infrequently appear to form an opinion which is a minority one. This is perfectly fine, but given that you like things other people don't and vice to that versa, I'm not sure I see the logic in using these people's opinions when deciding whether or not to watch something.
And then there's the whole issue of "what can you possibly add to a discussion about a show you have not seen?" but that's been covered already by my betters[/sycophant].
Originally posted by 2P4EI agree that the show lacked much pizazz, but a completely terrible ppv with several stupid shocking swerves is demonstrably worse.
Ya. Had I spent $45 (or whatever the poundly equivalent is) on it I wouldn't consider it my wisest investment but I thought it was still an enjoyable PPV with one good match (Truth/Rey) and one pretty excellent one (Randy/Christian).
Somehow, this was the first WWE PPV I've ever ordered. This. And it was fine enough for what it was. Some good stuff, some bad stuff, and ultimately completely forgettable. A month from now, I will no longer remember the results. A year from now, I will have no recollection of ever ordering the show.
That IC title match was awful. If we have to have a new (and worse) Ahmed Johnson, let's just have him feud with David Otunga in a blue helmet while we're at it.
Why did that sign say "Brutus 'The Bird' Beefcake"?

He always is when company's over. But the little pecker fell through the drop ceiling AGAIN yesterday and I was about ready to throttle him.
I enjoyed the PPV, yeah not everything was standout, but it wasn't like it was the worst ever either.
R-Truth/Rey was an entertaining opener, and I was pleasnetly surprised to see Truth go over cleanly.
The IC title match was about what I expceted it to be, Jackson kicking ass and the Corre somehow getting involved. At some point here eill be a 'Corre barred from ringside' match between the two.
Sin Cara/Chavo was a basically there to get Sin Cara on PPV, and get him PPV win. Chavo really showed off that he hasn't been wrestling as much as he should have been for having a PPV match though.
Del Rio being there to say hi was odd.
Tag Match was entertaining but I wonder what's left for Punk. I thought they woul dhave had new Nexus win here to further them a bit but I guess not.
The Divas match was blah. Though I was surpirsed to see no sign Kharma.
Christian/Orton was very well done and easily match of the night. Loved all the reversals and the points they played off the first match. Small tease at the end of Christian's frustration leading to a heel turn.
Lawler/Cole was plain enjoyable fun. And Bret's surpise apperance was nice.
Miz/Cena was not quite what I expected. I love that they played off the 'no rules' stip and basically ahd a gloriied handicapped match. What made it better was Miz's running commentary of what his plans for Cena were. I liked the finish too, they played off fo RR '99 liek a lot of people expected, but only they got caught due to modern day technology(tm), as the Ref found Riley's cell phone. Miz quitting a minute after that makes sense though as he is the cowardly heel. His back (Riley) was down and out and he saw no escape, what is the point for him to not say I Quit and live to fight another day. The ref bump was intersting. but I guess that was one way to get the mic in Riley/Miz's hands so they could play the recording.
I was thinking about how Bruno's record is unbreakable, and how Punk's reign compares to it. While doing this Ric Flair's name popped into my head. Punk's was 434 days. Ric's first run was 476. Flair had ten runs with the NWA title for 3,101 days.
