Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I sort of agree that Rock/Cena II is the right thing to do. In a way it kind of is. It was a precarious situation. Usually the current guy should go over the past guy. But Mania was in Miami and John Cena isn't your average star shall we say. Half the fans hate his guts, probably even more than that and I was there in Sunlife Stadium. I have absolutely no doubt that 99.9% of the people in there paid their money to see The Rock beat John Cena that night. It's what the people wanted and I think WWE made the right call in having Rock go over. That still leaves the problem of the past going over the present. That isn't right. By having the rematch, Cena goes over, WWE is able to imprint that the current generation IS as good as the past generation and their current top guy gets his biggest win ever. I thought about it that way and I can totally understand why Rock/Cena kind of needs to happen.
Trips/Brock doesn't need to happen though, 100% agreed on that. Brock didn't want the first match, Trips goaded him into it, got his arm broken twice and then tapped out. Brock won decisively and quit. It ended. Now he's back attacking Vince. Triple H has a reason to want a rematch but Brock doesn't. If it does indeed happen, I don't know how they get him to accept. I guess they could use HHH's career as the carrot to dangle in front of Lesnar's face to get him to agree so he can end the game once and for all. I just don't know. Given the reaction of some LA fans to the ending of the last match though, I don't think it's particularly wise of them to go that particular route in New York of all places. The potential is there for the fans to shit all over it and like him or not, Trips doesn't deserve that as his retirement send off. Nobody does.
But hey, all will become clear in 2/3 weeks time. Not long to wait now. At this rate though, I'm starting to think either Trips or Taker isn't working Mania. Food for thought, HHH is on the Mania 29 promo bus while Taker isn't, meanwhile, Taker is in the Mania 29 promo ad while HHH isn't. DAT DECEPTION.
