The comparisons to HIAC I are bullshit. That first one was VERY well booked. First of all, the arrival of Kane was teased for months and fans were excited to finally see him. Secondly, it was classic booking 101. Annoying heel gets the shit beat out of him for 25 minutes, taking multiple spectacular bumps in the process, and then wins on a fluke. Shawn came out of the match with more respect for taking the ass-whipping and he got the win. Taker lost absolutely nothing in defeat and moved on to a hot feud. The match itself was good. The result left everyone strong. Compare that to last night.  Not only did the match kill all of Rollins’ moves (how can anyone by pinned by him again without looking weak after Wyatt kicked out of everything 36 times?) but there’s really nowhere for either guy to go now. What’s next, a rematch?  Who the fuck wants to see that?  Maybe the next one will be in HIAC.  Oh wait...yeah, real smart to start with the blow-off gimmick match.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
