    two words: wrestling clinic

  3. Rex Anderson says:

    That match was the best in the world. It was like watching a video game

  4. Silent J says:

    May have been the best WM match ever or at least the second best WM “wrestling” match behind Steamboat/Savage

  5. Alex says:

    I like how the camera caught Jericho petting punk after the match.

  6. LLS says:

    If you think that that was the second best match in WM history, give your head a shake. it wasn’t even Jericho’s best WM match.

  7. dave says:

    LLS: The crowd was flat, big difference. Although it is clear, there will be a LOT of room for improvement in match two, this was nowhere near the best quality match these guys could have but, it’s not all about fluid holds and pretty moves. This was a strong style beat down and deserves its acclaim

  8. LLS says:

    I think the storytelling in the ring was flat. And honestly, I think its the fault of “super serious” Jericho. Just not a fan of his persona and how it translates in the ring.

    Can’t wait for the next Botchmania to show Jericho petting Punk!

    LLS – I actually now see what you mean. They tried to sell the disqualification stip but it seemed to go out of the window and I don’t know if an audible was called but it felt as if they were pacing early on to go another 10/15 minutes, then they tried to draw out a series of near finishes that went on too much. BUT it was a great match, one for the purists, it just requires a lot of improvement. It’s a great statement for both guys, that THIS match disappointed many but I liked the intensity and brutality of the match. It lacked the storytelling the HIAC had and it lacked the electricity of Rock/Cena. But between the three matches, we’re having a total wrestling show. Shame about the rest of the card and the lack of anything notable below the three main events.
