Re: Did Rock Vs. Cena surpass Rock Vs. Hogan?
As far as the match itself goes, no. Rock Vs. Hogan was one of my hardest mark out moments ever. I still get chills when I watch it. That match took me back to my childhood while also putting together my favorite of that era and my favorite as a kid together in the ring at the same time. It was just magical to me.
Rock Vs. Cena felt like they were trying to recreate that and it didn't fully work. I also felt like the match ran about 10 minutes too long and both guys got gassed, and it didn't quite have the raw passion from the crowd that Hogan/Rock did. I marked for Rock going over, and it was a good match for the most part, but I wasn't blown away by it.
