Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Cal already covered it but yeah, his dislike for Rock doesn't extend to blindly hating every match he's in. Rock/Cena wasn't good for a number of reasons, the main two being the length of the match and neither guy really being able to work holds well enough to kill time like they did.
Rock/Hogan was somehow 10x the match Rock/Cena which is amazing considering Cena never fails to deliver in big main events. They nailed the length of the match to a tee, where it got enough time to build up the pseudo heel Rock, the crowd loving Hogan and the eventual finishing stretch. Rock/Hogan would have sucked similarly if they'd gone for a 30 minute match like Rock/Cena, which makes it all the more strange that WWE agents didn't think to follow a similar format given Rock had barely wrestled in 8 years and was hardly in a condition to wrestle a match of that length.
