Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Punk-Jericho is one of the shining examples that storytelling is still prevalent in today's wrestling. It's one of those "measuring stick" matches in all honesty, because if you want to know what somebody's taste in wrestling is , just ask them what they believe is better ; Rock/Cena or Punk/Jericho.
The DQ stipulation was wonderfully done and the match had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. When it comes to WWE Championship matches at Wrestlemania, I'd have it just below Austin-Rock and Flair-Savage as the third greatest WWE Championship match in Wrestlemania history. Alot of people may not feel as strongly about it as I do, but I believe it's better than the end of an era Cell match because of it's subtle storytelling being superior to the HIAC's "in-your-face" type story.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
