I just rewatched it too, and thought it was just as fun the first time I watched it. Personally, despite the mediocre storyline they were in, I think they pulled off a great story in the match and used the Street Fight stipulation nicely. The moment where Punk loses his shit after Jericho went after his sister still makes me . Crowd was great too.
Ok good, glad I'm not alone on that. I see people throwing it in their top 10 match lists and raving about it being better than the WM match and it's a bit puzzling. Both Sheamus/Bryan and Cena/Lesnar from that same show blow it out of the water.
edit - I recall the crowd being kinda dead for most of it until the finishing stretch...or was that just the WM match?
I think many people called it 'dead ' cause they were expecting it to be MITB'11 levels which is was never going to be. Still a good match, though out shined by the two classics in Bryan/Sheamus and Brock/Cena.
Edit: Ugh, I didn't really like Lesnar/Cena. I thought that match dragged, and just wanted it to end. Same with Lesnar/Triple H, which was even worse.
Lesnar/Hunter definitely isn't on the same level as Lesnar/Cena, though I still enjoyed it and thought it was a pretty good match. I can go on and on about the reasons I believe Lesnar/Cena to be amazing, though.

Oh, I think I've heard them all haha. Mostly from a lot of people here. I just don't get it. I thought it was boring after the first few minutes when Cena got busted open, which was a great spot. Everything after that was dreadful to watch. Although like I've said the first time I watched it, I didn't watch it live and I've heard enough about the match already before I even saw it, so I'm betting that was a big factor. Triple H vs. Lesnar though, wow that was bad. Despite Lesnar not impressing me in-ring this year with his two matches, I'm still a huge fan of his in-ring style and am looking forward to his 'Mania match.
