Cena/Khali is woeful only if you're invested in matches with impressive looking moves. Cena gives a superb babyface performance, constantly clawing and fighting for every scrap of offence, Khali is hopeless but a sub 10 minute match is perfect since it gives him enough time to look dominant but does so in a timely manner where the control segment doesn't drag horribly (it would have sucked horribly if it was 20 minutes, unless Cena goes above and beyond and Khali works a miracle to make his control interesting), the build to Khali finally getting tangled in the ropes giving Cena the one moment he's needed all match is just perfect pro wrestling and Cena's facial expression is just glorious. Seriously they capture the babyface/monster dynamic wonderfully, Cena's offence is faultless the entire match, he bumps above and beyond to get the crowd fully behind him and the whole match they build to his eventual comeback wonderfully. Its just an exceptionally smart match designed to get something extraordinary out of Khali, and really unless you're going into the match expecting incredible spots and awesome looking moves, I can't understand how such obvious psychology, pacing, build and intelligence in the match can be overlooked.

It was simply the best possible match they could have had, Rock/Cena wasn't even close to what both men are capable of and a lot of it was them foolishly being given 30 minutes and having little to no idea how to prolong the match. Whole middle section felt empty and just something to digest before 'THE BIG FINISH' and tbh matches like that these days regardless of crowd atmosphere and the magnitude will never grip me as much as something like Cena/Khali where not only does every moment in the match feel like part of the bigger picture of the match, but which is also worked wonderfully to give a very good (and great by Khali standards) match.

Whole thing just proves Cena v Mark Henry is one of the best matchups the company has never really attempted and are missing out bigtime on. If Cena can get that level of match out of an immobile Khali, then sparks will fly when he wrestles a guy with much greater offence and understanding of how to work a character like Henry possesses.

Henry shouldn't be out for much longer. I'd mark for him to return at Raw 1000 and cost Cena the belt, leading to a match between them at SS. Not gonna happen, but I'd fucking love it .

Not a fan of the Cena/Khali matches. Wouldn't put them above Rock/Cena, but that's in no way saying Rock/Cena was good.

With this rumble there were a lot of eliminations I didnt like. I recall Undertaker and HBK getting eliminated during somebodys entrance I believe. Finlay got DQ'ed for using a weapon, yet thats never been a problem in previous rumbles.

Yeah, Finlay getting DQ'd in the Rumble was utter retarded shit. Didn't mind HBK and Undertaker's eliminations, was just something else to build from the 07 Rumble and tease their WM match a year later. Only real thing I enjoyed in the match was Snuka and Piper, with everyone standing back and watching them fight. I think it was Punk (might have been someone else, I forget) who had a monstrous smile on their face watching them battle it out in MSG for the first time in years.

Forgot that happened lol. Yeah that was great too.

Fucking Cena ruined the Rumble for me too. Yeah, it was a HUGE shock when he walked about, but I wasn't marking out like everyone else seemed to be (before they realised it wasn't cool to cheer the guy...). The moment he came out I knew he was winning, and that bummed me out.

Re-watched HHH/Taker End Of An Era for the first time yesterday. Not quite as incredible as I thought it was the first time around due to the unpredictable spots(HBK going to ring the bell only to be put into the Hell's Gate, SCM into the Pedigree, etc.) and suspense of watching it live. Still a great match, but it may be down to just ****1/2 - ****3/4 for me instead of my initial *****.

Oh yeah, and a note about Bryan/Punk this past Sunday that I forgot to mention: I really loved the finish. Seems like a lot of people didn't, but I loved how it was a call back to AJ putting them both through a table two weeks earlier and I loved how AJ made the transition from being elated when she put them through a table on Raw to remorseful when she saw them crash through the table again at MITB. Yay for continuity.
