Just curious, how much were people affected by the AJPW footage that popped up in the last year in voting for Funk? That was a huge part of it for me, supplementing what we already had to what felt like a pretty big degree. If not that, what specific footage that you hadn't seen raised him in your eyes during the voting period?

I gave it 4.5. Though the coin flip killed me.

My favorite two thing about Funk vs Orton were A) the transitions between acts. I thought they had backed themselves into a corner with first the piledriver and then the severity of the leg damage but they successfully transitioned out of both and B ) how much Orton came off like a star. That was half Orton and half Funk but I'd rarely seen him like that. The symmetry in the slaps, for instance, was great.

Yep, this was a money finish away from being a true classic, but still an incredible find.  One of the rare times you wish the video feed cut out a little early :)

You know whats even funnier is that Funk does not even get to advance to the finals. Orton is the one who faces Adonis in the finals...maybe I should track that down...hmmmmm....

 

Totally agree, Matt!

Is there a version of this match that doesn't have the dubbed over fan commentary? Because that ruined it for me.
