Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
So now that last night's epic RAW was the mouthwash that god rid of the awful taste that D-Bryan/Sheamus left in my mouth I have re-watched two matches from WM 28 with a change of mind. I re-watched Taker/HHH as well as Cena/Rock.
Taker/HHH I still have ***1/2 for the reasons I have already listed. Sorry, but IMO it's just not a good match really. Reminds me of Flair/HBK. Take away the emotion and you're left with nothing really but I prefer Flair/HBK over this any day tbh. But that's neither here nor there.
Now here's the match my rating definitely changed for. Rock vs Cena was a great match. Could it have been worked better given the fact that it had a year build and was eagerly anticipated? Maybe. But hold for hold, move for move this was a great match. I loved Cena's facial expression at the end when he attempted the People's Elbow and that moment where The Rock gets up and Cena runs into the Rock Bottom is no doubt a Wrestlemania. But this was a great match.
Rock vs Cena gets a whopping ****
Anyway, off to bed now. I'm gonna re-watch Jericho/Punk tomorrow.
