Watch WWE Over the Limit 2010
Over the Limit (2010) was a PPV presented by Axe Hair, which took place on May 23, 2010 at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. It was the first event promoted under the Over the Limit name. In the main event from the Raw brand, John Cena faced Batista for the WWE Championship, while The Big Show versus World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger was the main event from the SmackDown brand. Matches on the undercard included Randy Orton against Edge, CM Punk facing Rey Mysterio, and Drew McIntyre defending the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Kofi Kingston. Other championships defended at the event were the WWE Divas Championship and the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship. The event drew 197,000 pay-per-view buys, and was attended live by 11,000 people. Five wrestlers sustained legitimate injuries during the course of the show.
A couple of days ago I authored a predictions article on this website that essentially stated that more than The Limit had the possibility is the best PPV of 2010. The important thing word here’s potential, since it unsuccessful on all levels.
This PPV summarized exactly what is wrong using the WWE. Before I recieve onto individual segment reviews however, I have to possess a rant concerning the bloodstream issue. I wish to allow it to be obvious which i support WWE PG. It is really a wise online marketing strategy, and could be used very well. But PG is not related to WWE not allowing bloodstream to become proven on television. They are able to pull off that on the PG rating, it’s WWE’s decision not to take.
As I can comprehend the WWE stopping blading, I merely cannot realise why they need to stop a match for any real cut. I must make the best for Punk’s match here while he needed treatment. What wasn’t needed were your camera angles being selected to deliberately shield the bloodstream during Punk’s match. When Punk had been shaved, no-you could see his face, which really required all of the value from the moment.
Then in Cena’s match, by which she got just a little cut, again the match is stopped, the fans are booing (and also the children) and also the whole pace and rhythm from the match is destroyed. WWE have to stop this petty policy, because all it will is disrupt matches, making adult fans furious.
Anyway onto match reviews:
Came McIntyre (c) versus. Kofi Kingston (Intercontinental title)
I wish to say at this time which i didn’t have trouble with Kingston winning, it had been the way in which he won that annoyed me. WWE continues to be building Came up very well, after which once his match arrives he loses to some move which has nothing you’ve seen prior pinned anybody. He required to get beat by trouble in paradise. Within my estimation this made Came appear a little weak.
Following a match was the attack by Matt Sturdy, that was perfectly considered and it was one of the couple of popular features of this ‘PPV’.
Ted DiBiase w/ Virgil versus. R-Truth
This can be a much the same review towards the first match, again I’d not a problem with Ted getting beat, however the win just appeared too simple for Truth. This didn’t do anything to assist Ted’s credibility, in order to cement Virgil like a pressure outdoors the ring.
CM Punk versus. Rey Mysterio
It was easily match from the night with a lengthy, lengthy way. There have been some excellent counters and a few good grappling. I had been surprised about Punk’s flurry of offense after she got cut, which was very intense and enjoyable. However, Used to do say within my predictions which i bet WWE was without the heart to allow CM Punk win, plus they prove me absolutely right.
I’m afraid that for me this match has destroyed CM Punk. He was totally humiliated making to appear very weak. It is rather obvious that now begins a feud with Kane and Punk (primary-eventer), whereas Mysterio (the best mid-carder) come in the fatal 4 method for the planet title. Punk deserves the primary-event scene, and to tell the truth WWE are earning him seem like a clown rather of the pressure to become believed with. Punk can’t afford to get rid of to Mysterio 2 occasions in 3, it’s character destroying.
I truly do not understand how Punk will return out of this. All I’m able to hope would be that the feud with Kane does not happen and the man will get extreme revenge on Mysterio. Oh, and please Punk increase your hair back, you are not exactly the same without them.
The Hart Empire (c) versus. Mizicho (Unified tag titles)
This was a average tag match at the best. I stated within my predictions the Hart Empire would win, that they did. What is amazing to me however is the grade of team they beat. This is exactly what you call a push. Anyway, the match was nothing special. All I’m able to hope is the fact that Jericho and Miz start better things.
Randy Orton versus. Edge
Orton’s injuries was the storyline from the night. WWE has lost certainly one of its greatest (otherwise the greatest) stars for you never know how lengthy. The match itself really can’t be reviewed, however the finish was weak due to the injuries also it certainly had an impact on the crowd throughout the big event. It had been quite embarrasing the way in which she got hurt too, and you’ve got to question if we’ll ever see him stalking his opponents like this again. Return soon Randy!
Jack Swagger (c) versus. Big Show (World Heavyweight Title)
I’m afraid I must state that it was an undesirable match, and it was worsened because of the finish. Swagger got themself DQ’ed (as predicted), but rather of WWE letting Swagger beat Show lower making an effect, Show destroyed him, again making Swagger seem like a paper champion. Poorly booked.
Eve (c) versus. Mayrse (Diva’s Championship)
It appears as though the diva’s have returned to 5 minute matchs again. This encounter was absolutely nothing to shout home about, but I do think this feud isn’t over yet. I’d cash favour seen Lay-Awesome for action.
John Cena versus. Batista (WWE Championship)
The match itself virtually resided to the hype, and yet again WWE destroyed it using the finish. Batista saying I quit on the top from the vehicle was as soon as that destroyed it. It made Batista seem like a coward, and cemented Cena’s place above him. Precisely how scripted was the conclusion? ‘I was wishing you’d say that’, how absolutely pathetic and sophistication-less. To finish it, Cena still FU’ed him with the stage that we are only able to guess end’s Batista’s career in WWE. Very sad approach to take for somebody of his immense ability, he wasn’t even permitted to depart with pride. Disgusting.
This PPV would be a huge disappointment. I’m not sure should you observed however a face virtually went in every match. There have been no heel wins to balance it, and then the PPV just did not feel right. The worst consequence of the night time was Punk being shaved bald, since i believe that that loss really will require some dealing with, espeicially if he isn’t ongoing the feud with Mysterio. He must get revenge (and large) to return out of this huge loss.
