They were both blatantly going to win their matches... thus setting up rock/cena II
But yes I was let down by the Rumble itself because Cena was just ALL sorts of 80's Hogan in there literally doing the big point and shit.. it was painful as a fan who likes... Idk... a little suspense in the Rumble match. call me old fashioned I guess but towards the end of the match I really couldnt care less. I remember they were down to 6 and i was like "well better go buy smokes for Rock V Punk because Cena is obviously going to win."
then I came back and watched the episode of Botchamania that was Rock V Punk
