Loved the way you worded the end result to Cena vs Brock. You know Brock winning would have been good, logical, and fitting for Cena's current angle. Only it didn't happen. So the way the match was booked considering the planned result WAS indeed done well. Spot on. 100% agree.
It really went up for me on this watch. Lots of really cool sequences I picked up on. Love when Punk essentially goes crazy for a minute or two after Jericho goes after his sister. Jericho going for the GTS to finish the match was a nice touch too. I dunno, thought it all meshed well together.
Cena didn't stop selling the arm or anything either. So different than the end result of that Miz/Cena match. The problem lies in the result, not the booking of the result. I still can't get over what could have been if Cena had gone on a losing streak and either turned heel or started having to work his way back up the card, start questioning himself more, etc. I was more interested in where Cena would be going than Brock, tbh, even though that still interested me.
Also can't get over how epic Brock's dive out of the ring was.
