    Think I might have my one in mind for HBK's last ever match. Will start on it later tonight and have it posted up.

    It is a cracker of a question


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    F*ck now I'm second guessing myself and thinking of a completely different one. Eek. I'll decide tonight. It's a good question and there's a few ways you can go with it.

    Thats what ATH questions do, many good answers, but which one can you do more justice to. And do you risk your opponent doing a better job?

    Decisions.....etc

    Sorry if you were going to pick him Omackeral, was a little afraid that by the time I finished writing that you may already have.

    HBK vs AJ Styles FTW!

    great question Joe


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    I feel this battle is gonna be a doozy. Great first post by BH, how will Omac respond?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    I have a bit of other work to do first but I should start working on my answer tonight.

    riddled with grammar / spelling errors now that I look back over it but it's almost 2am here so just wanted to get it in before potentially losing that match up to my opponent. There are plenty of other potential bouts but it's the one that jumped out at me when I first read the question.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    2 great answers up in the first of our two opening bouts. A poll will be added after Omackerals first rebuttal.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Just got my rebuttal in there. Hope you all enjoy it.

    and with that (my 2nd rebuttal is up) im out. Look forward to you seeing out our rd1 bout mate, twas a goodun.

    Also looking forward to checking out the other 1st round ties, some potentially very tasty match ups there


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,478 ✭✭✭brianregan09


    2 Great questions to kick off , have already cast my vote in one :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Good battle Bounty Hunter. Any other candidates you had in mind? I had a paragraph written on HBK vs The Rock but I couldn't really think of an aftermath that would pay off so started over.

    Same goes man.

    I did consider the Rock as tbh those two at Mania is often cited as both mens' missed dream match but I could clearly see how I would argue against such a match (2 part timers etc) so avoided it to instead go for AJ.

    HBK apparently said a few years back that Joe would be his dream opponent if he ever came back (but he was saying that he wouldn't at the same time). so I considered that but again it just didn't draw me as well as my choice.

    The final one I considered was doing something out of left field if you had taken my choice ahead of me, and that would be choosing someone not currently on the WWE roster such as Kenny Omega.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    Our first AH match is over and Bounty Hunter wills by a landslide. Omackeral fought a good fight but it wasnt enough to sway the masses. Bounty Hunter goes on to teh next round while Omackeral bows out.

    The other match between PTH2009 and LeeJM hasnt kicked off yet despite the match being up the last a good few days now. If theres no movement in the next 24 hours then I may have to sadly call this one a no contest.

    The next match up will be live shortly, so keep tuned.

    The match with JP Liz and Shagnasti is up!

    Well that is thinker of a question, please bear with me while I consider as have a few in mind ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Great options available with the create a tag team question, looking forward to the replies.

    Any word from PTH2009 or LeeJM from match 2? If there's a forfeit/substitution from either or both, I'll gladly give it another bash if there's no other volunteers as I got slaughtered by BH!


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,197 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    **** guys didn't knw I was up i thought I'd get a PM or something

    Good luck Liz.

    Not sure what's going on with Lee but he should reply before we give feedback otherwise we're just giving people ammo to use against opponents by commenting in here.

    That said myself and Omackeral are done now if anyone wants to comment on all that HBshizzle, personally I think it was close than the poll suggests (often the case) but I'll take it.

    My own opinion is someone like Ziggler would be a massive waste of a one time only return for HBK , what has he really done to deserve it ?

    AJ vs Shawn is a dream match that everyone would like to see thats why ya go my vote
