I just came in here to say one thing......DAT CENA/PUNK CHEMISTRY
Damn, you commercial breaks. Wish I could have seen the entire thing. At least they came back just in time for all the goodness. What I liked about this finisher fest of a match is the SELLING. They didn't just get up 5 seconds later to hit another big move. They actually laid on the mat and looked like they really had the wind knocked out of them.
Are people seriously saying that Cena didn't sell? How does running into the ring on the 9 count and freaking laying in the ring like a dead carcass afterwards= NO SELLING? Seriously, if you don't know the meaning of selling, don't bother to comment on it. Had he ran into the ring and started sprinting across the ropes and started doing triple jumps then the argument could have been made.
One of the simplest and most effective ways of selling is simply laying on the floor. Even look at how Cena climbed the ropes. To me Cena is one of the few wrestlers out there that actually climbs the turnbuckle like it's really 20 minutes to the match and he's had the shit kicked out of him.
And how the heck was this match predictable? As a matter of fact I was expecting a DQ or something and they turned into a triple threat at Mania. Thank God they didn't ruin such a good match with a DQ ending. I think those who saying this match was "predictable" are just typical Cena haters.
This match is one of the few instances where I actually enjoyed a finisher fest. Had it not been for the commercials I might have given it MOTY thus far but it's still Shield vs Ryback/Sheamus/Jericho for me. Nonetheless, we got an awesome main event last night and it really woke the crowd up.
