Well, the quality of the EC match shows they had a very good match in them, though how well it would have worked without the title I'm not so sure (there would have been a lot less heat in the big nearfalls). That being said anything's better than the aborted Cole match which honestly could have been an entertaining and amusing spectacle. Anyone who's watched Lawler vs Jimmy Hart from 1981 in Memphis knows Lawler can work a damn good match with a non wrestler and produce something watchable.

@Yeah1993: precisely. He was a cowardly and weasely loudmouth (pretty much a staple Lawler opponent) and he was booked so poorly that he really felt like the sort of guy who could lose to a veteran. I can only remember the Morrison FCA match as a notable big match in his reign, but bugger me if I can remember if he won clean.

The Michael Cole thing should have been a five minute squash with Austin spending the whole match laughing at it. Who's idea was it to have a Michael Cole control period for what felt like thirty five minutes? Then Austin stuns everyone and shit. Even then I don't even know if it was as bad as Cena/Miz.

Pretty sure Malenko was the agent responsible for the layout, *awaits someone sarcastically commenting on the shock of a match layed out by Malenko not being as good as it could have been*.

Cole stooging and begging off, a few comedy spots with his offence having no effect on Lawler, some trademark Lawler punches and some form of humiliating finish and you have everything you need to make that match serve its purpose in the middle of the card and serve as a form of entertainment in between the bigger matches.

Cena/Miz I truthfully remember little about, though the teased countout and subsequent restart seemed really awful for a Wrestlemania main event. The sort of thing you can get away with on TV or maybe a B level PPV with some build (final match for the challenger, champion having won matches in a screwy fashion etc) but not on the biggest PPV of the year.

So I finished watching Punk's DVD. I admit I enjoyed it and have more respect for him than before (I always respected him just like every other wrestling that puts their body on the line, though) and was a nice little story seeing him come up from backyard wrestling to the top of the mountain. Kind of like Benoit's story except you don't think any tragic follow-ups. It also reminds me of how epic last summer truly was. I've been bored by Punk since then so much that it made me forget completely about that awesome period.

And speaking of Benoit, I find it funny that the HHH/Punk match is not on the DVD but in case they'll ever display it again anywhere, will they blur out the "Wish Benoit Was Here" sign? I assume they will considering the fact that "Trish Swallows" was blurred out (SummerSlam 2006) in Orton's DVD.

My god, Lawler/Cole literally should've been a 15 second match where Lawler just hits a piledriver and celebrates with Austin. Seriously, it was fucking Wrestlemania.

At the time Miz won the title i wanted Barrett to win the title and Cena to return and win RR, setting up Barrett/Cena for WM.
When Punk became the leader of Nexus i wanted Punk to win the title and Cena to win the RR, setting up Punk/Cena for WM.

I didn't think Orton/Punk was gonna take place until Miz cost Cena the RR, Cena/Miz was pretty much a lock after that.

I want from being elated that Miz won the title to not even buying WM till the last minute.

Now looking back i'm happy as hell Punk didn't win the title.

Yeah the win was clean, Morrison missed a Starship Pain into a table than was hit with the Skullcrushing Finale.

I remembered nothing about the match before Cena speared Miz over the barricade.
I usually don't rewatch matches but i made this an exception, still have the same opinion that the match was one of the worst WM main events in recent memory.

I was only looking forward to Punk/Orton and Rock's involvement in the main event and bought th ppv at the last minute, but it was even worse than i thought it'd be.

The restart was made worse by Rock's long promo, why not just have him come out and Rock Bottom Cena ?

without the first 2 matches and hhh/taker, Mania 27 would have been a bottom 5 WM imo.

Holy shit, I'm loving this Punk doc. It doesn't feel like a WWE production at all (I'm a little under half way through).

I gots to see the Austin doc, I REALLY liked the Punk doc. I have it above the ECW doc honestly (though a rewatch of ECW might change that). Seen the Punk doc twice and I really loved it. Need to find the special features. I really liked the talk of Hero/Punk and Joe/Punk. Though did anybody find the whole devil part with the SES hilariously creepy?

I'm so glad they included at least a snippet of the SES and Jericho vs Cow Palace house show incident. Hobo Punk was everything.
