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.

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.
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 ?
