Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Going off memory I really felt they captured the story of Cena being the young phenom on the cusp of super stardom, and having to ultimately prove himself against the guy who always brings his best for the big occasions wonderfully. Thought HBK controlling made sense to get across his experience as well as Cena having to overcome and prove himself working from the bottom up rather than controlling a majority of the match and not being able to get the win: the leg selling always seems to irk some but its never bothered me. Feels like a temporary strategy from Shawn to keep control rather than what he's pinning his hopes on, and Cena shaking it and progressively moving better over time works for me given the short length of time its targeted. Finishing stretch was pretty choice as well I thought.
Cena/HHH is one of those matches I recall liking a lot, but one I'm in no hurry to revisit. In many ways I'm expecting to like it less, given 2006 Cena isn't really close to what he would become by the years end and into 2007, and HHH sinks lower and lower as a worker everyday for me outside of a few matches and performances, so its more a case of not wanting to put myself through a 20 minute match I'm not truly expecting to enjoy.
