Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Why isn't everybody talking about John Cena overcoming those odds at the start of the show?
How big was the gulf in quality from Cena's promo ( not ziggler's bit) to what we got later in Rock/Punk. If you ever need an example of why Cena is disliked by men then this was it.
The closing promo was fantastic. Just excellent. Only a few cringe-worthy moments (worked shoot of the production guy telling him to wrap it up, Cole and King's laugh track,COOKIE PUSS , etc.). When it comes to selling a PPV match, and strictly just reminding people WHEN a PPV IS (20 days), I can't think of one better in YEARS. Punk sold Rock's insults SO WELL. No exaggerated, shocked faces, but none of the Cena "wow that wasn't funny let me fake laugh and look into the camera and talk to my Dad" shit. The last line and the Rock Bottom were just so good.
"Your arms are too short to box with God" is a money line. That sort of line deserves to live in wrestling lore like "I need to beat you rock, I need it more than anything you could ever imagine...". I don't care if it's not original, it was that moment when in an argument everyone holds their breath. And while the tattoo stuff was stupid the Rock nailed it to close it out. That's what happens when 2 of the best in the industry ever go at it
I don't even know where they go from here, because that was a money promo.
