Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I don't think Cena beating Lesnar is the problem. It's Cena beating Lesnar in the first match. Lesnar fucks Cena up for 15 minutes, Cena comes back and wins; that'd make a great final match, but Christ the booking decision to have Lesnar lose was dumb as ass. They ended a potentially amazing feud in one goddamn match. The only sensible reason I can think they would make him fall like that is because he could flake out on the company again and they don't trust him or something. I don't know.
they had this set up PERFECTLY. Cena loses to a returning Rock, Cena is in for the "fight of his life" with the returning Lesnar, Cena (should have) takes the loss to Lesnar, and shit, Cena lost to fucking Johnny Ace at the PPV after that. I think the angle possibilities would have been tremendous. "John Cena can no longer win? Has he lost it!?" I think that could go on until he beats the man he first lost to in the Rock whenever (if?) they have their re-match. I'm sure they'd want to run Cena v Rock and Lesnar again, and Cena could each second round match.
The Lesnar possibilities are also amazing. Who in the blue fuck has beaten Cena and HHH clean in one year, let ALONE being the only two matches that guy had the entire 12 months (so far). If they want to run Lesnar v Taker then that'd be perect set-up......hell, that was perfect set-up for Lesnar v _Anyone_ in 2002/03/04. "I've beaten ....., I've beaten Angle, I've beaten Rock, I've beaten Taker - you will lose."
So yeah, I'm the camp of "They Fucked This Up." Just like they did with CM Punk last year, so I won't be surprised anymore.
