Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I'm clearly alone, but I think the Rock/Cena set looks great. I'm with the rest of you in that I pretty much HATED anytime they were face to face in the ring together because the promos sucked. Like Clique said, they took the feud in the absolute wrong direction. They did Rock/Hogan perfectly, they could've copied the exact same formula for Rock/Cena.
Rock comes back on February 14th, 2011 - I'd keep that promo and change nothing. One of the best returns ever imo.
From there, call me crazy but I'd have nothing going on until the RAW before Wrestlemania in Chicago. Have Cena interrupt Rocky but instead of the shite he spewed out about how he worked his tail to the bone for the good of the business blah blah, I'd have Cena say that he talked trash because he knew that Rocky would take notice and come back because Rock is the master at talking trash. Have him say it's his dream to face Rocky, and say that Rocky may have been THE GUY back in the day but now Cena is the guy and he's gonna prove it at Wrestlemania. Have that be the night where they shake hands and agree to the match...
...and then have him give Rocky the AA just as it happened, and then have Rock cost Cena the match at Wrestlemania with the Rock Bottom.
We didn't need the segment the night after Wrestlemania in my opinion.
As for all the 2012 stuff, the end of the segment in Portland sucked, and the end of the segment in Boston sucked, and the end of the segment in Atlanta absolutely sucked too. The promos were far better when they were away from each other, such as Cena's promo the night after No Way Out or Rock's history lessons and Rock Concert. It was as though Rock was allowed to be classic Rock whenever he did his videos and solo stuff, but was told to tone it down and let Cena have all the glory whenever they were face to face. Not to mention Cena's whole argument was total and utter bullshit.
Anyways, I'll be getting the Blu Ray. I'm glad they've included the Rock Concert, and if the post-Wrestlemania promo from April 2nd is there in FULL then it's must-have for me.
