Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Nope, I don't think there's an awful lot between them but I prefer the Wrestlemania match. Just feels a bigger match with the atmosphere and story of Cena basically having to prove himself against HBK the year after he put down HHH. A few people seem to take umbridge with Cena's selling of the leg, but I found it to be a minor part of the match where HBK attacks the leg not so much as the sole basis of his offence/strategy, but rather to ground and contain Cena and keep the momentum. Cena shaking the leg and then progressively selling it less makes sense to me as Michaels moves away from the leg and busts out more of his standard offence mixed in with a couple of fresher spots to put over the magnitude of the match, e.g piledriver on the steps.
I do think the London match is a better Cena performance however, as I find him to be the better worker by quite a distance from HBK on that night and the fact they can go for such a length of time and keep me enthralled every step of the way really speaks highly of Cena that night since HBK isn't my favourite guy post comeback, especially in longer matches.
EDIT: Mysterio match is superb, everything from them countering each other's signature offence to Rey's legwork paying off with Cena buckling and collapsing on an AA attempt, fuck I love that match. Perfect sub 15 minute main event and what strikes me about it is I reckon they could easily eclipse that encounter on PPV and offer up a whole new dynamic to the match in the process.
