Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Rock/Cena match was fine, but far too long. They absolutely should've gone the Rock/Hogan route in that it should've been about 15 mins long. Rock/Cena dragged in the middle, but I loved the staredown at the start followed by the power exchanges and then Rock almost getting the early pin which totally threw Cena for a minute.
The ending was magical too; Rock channeling his '96-'97 days with a crossbody off the top rope only for Cena to use his freakish power to gain the advantage. Then, Cena lets his ego get the better of him by trying to mock Rocky, only for Rock to use the breather to nip up and finish him off for the win. Plus, the pop from the crowd when Rock wins is a moment for the ages, and a TRUE feel-good moment as 95% of the crowd wanted Rocky to win.
Good match, just about worth the hype (crap as the build-up was). BUT I don't want to see a rematch. EVER.
