Rock and Cena turned out to be a good decent match and better then I expected but I seriously wanted to watch Suns vs Hornets when they took like 30 mins with Florida trying to sing...
Still. Y2J vs Punk and the streak match were easily the best 2 matches as I semi expected.
Just glad this Rocky/Cena bullshit is over. Hopefully Steve Austin vs Punk happens next year and a better build-up then 2 people having little digs at each other and use Twitter as a weapon.
Now I can go back to disliking Cena again! :D
is it just me or the match cena vs rock did not surpass either hogan vs rock or hogan vs warrior as far as crowd involvement. any thoughts on this?..tbh i enjoy it but not as much as i did hogan rock and warrior hogan :)
Well Cena/Rock did try to recapture the Hogan/Rock moment when the crowd was chanting both of their names while looking side to side.....but it was an epic fail. Cena's facial expression was classic when he looked back at rock afterwards. He had the "damn, this isn't working" smirk on his face.
As far as crowd involvement goes...Hogan/Warrior will always come out on top imo. The crowd was completely split and invested in their chosen superstar. Both wrestlers were in their prime and HUGE babyfaces. It was also the first of many in the WWE. First time two babyfaces challenged each other. First time it was champion vs champion. First time a PPV was held outside of the USA. First time there was doubt if hogan will win. It had the 2nd best build up to a match. 2nd only to WCW's year long build up to Sting vs Hogan...which was just plain epic!
Cena vs Rock was good, but with all the hype thrown behind the match....it fell short in my opinion. This all my opinion, but than again I am bias towards the golden era (yes I found it much more entertaining than the attitude era). It had more charismatic wrestlers, better storylines, better build up towards feuds (4 PPVs a year meant 3 months between to build up a great feud instead of throwing something together 2 weeks before a ppv), and the wrestlers actually performed with a little more passion.
if i compare it to the rock vs stone cold then it absolutely sucked everything except the rock winning just my honest opinion.
Really wasn't looking forward to that match and i didn't enjoy it at all.
