Excited for tonight. I think the Rumble match has the potential to be highly entertaining. Lots of midcard folks in there I'm invested in and/or generally find fun to watch. Then there's the heavy hitters in Cena, Orton, Seamus, Ryback, Shield who hopefully provide some big moments for us. I really am feeling stupidly optimistic about this. Hopefully it delivers.
Rock/Punk. Definite big time feel for this thing. The last time we had a match at this level was HHH/Lesnar. That delivered in spades, for me at least lol, so I'm hoping this will do the same. Interested to see how their styles mesh in an actual match. JR has talked about how Rock hasn't faced anybody who uses kicks and strikes as much as Punk before which is actually true when you think about it. It's new for him. I think they'll gel together nicely.
I think Rock will win. I've always thought that he would and my mind hasn't changed. I have to hand it to WWE though, outright saying The Shield can't interfere and this whole Maddox thing do have me questioning myself just a little. My gut says Rock wins though so I'm sticking with that. We're going to get answers to a lot of RTWM questions tonight. Let the road...and the bitching...begin.
Miz/Cena at WM 27 reference... oh God. Not the worst WM ME ever (Hogan/Yoko, Sid/Taker, Hogan/Sid and Bret/Yoko are far worse IMO), but good grief was it terrible. And their I Quit match at OTL wasn't any better either.
True but they put on a great match on Raw the night after the Extreme Rules PPV. It's amusing too since they put on a great Raw match but had two stinkers on PPV.
Cena to come out number 2. Eliminate Dolph and smile. Eliminate more people and smile. Have a staredown with Orton which the crowd will no sell. Then Win the RR to set up the match everyone wants to see. Rock V Cena, a couple of times in a lifetime.
