thank you for that
I agree with you on the rock in some ways I personally think the rock was an all time great during his main run as a face 2000-mid 2002 that is where he shined and evolved I loook at austin/rock at mania 17 as being a great match that I fondly remember. I do not personally dislike the rock in anyway (on a side note, is that true with the rock being an ass out the ring? he always seems very nice and professional outside the ring-clearly Im wrong if you have seen otherwise) however he came back around 2003 with this hollywood vibe about him that I never liked,
and since then he has moulded that heel character to pander to the crowd.
I know the feeling fans have for Cena,Until recent I disliked him myself but after hearing interviews with wrestlers and the videos with the make a wish foundation I cant help but like him as a human being. Maybe Im falling for the very deceptive videos they have played in regards to rock/cena and taken in their hype to much I dont know
this match has to be the headliner it has had the hype the build (even if it hasn't been to everyones agreement), as for show stealing
that will be HHH/Taker like you said and The only way I would put any match above rock/cena if Undertaker was retiring, Not for buisness reasons just for sheer respect of what he has done for wrestling in whole....Buisness wise it wouldnt make as much sense as rock/cena but UT deserves it.
but as it stands now I cant see anything other than cena/rock for the sheer publicity not to mention I think they learnt after hogan/rock in 02 that Dream matches should go last,
