Re: Worst WM Main event of all time
Worst WM main event of the 2000s: The Miz vs. John Cena, WWE title, WM 27. Miz could not carry his end against a more big match pro like Cena. The anticipation for the Rock made the match seem like filler. Undertaker and Triple H's match earlier was just better and easily match of the night (and even had pyro to end -- typically to ending most WM shows).
The 1990s: Lawrence Taylor vs. Bam Bam Bigelow, WM 11 - TIED WITH - Yokozuna vs. Hulk Hogan, WWE title, WM 9. Both were just bad matches. I think these kind of matches are telling of the quality of big main events getting better as the years went on. Not one of these guys were great in the ring but they had the presence and charisma to sell tickets.
The 1980s: Hulk Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy, WWE title, WM 2. It was the most forgettable of the five WMs in this decade.
FOR THE RECORD: I think anyone is crazy to say Rock vs. Cena was a horrible main event and/or match. Just nuts -- I suppose nothing short of a Dean Ambrose vs. Daniel Bryan 2 hour Iron Man match would suffice huh? Smarks.
