I watched the WM28 Blu Ray last week to see if I would have different takes on any of the matches. Punk/Jericho, the match overall was good, but not great, IMO. The 2nd half of the match was much better than the first half, IMO. The first half was worked at a really slow pace. And usually I have no problem with that. Faster pace doesn't necessarily mean better match. But in this match's case, I thought the first half dragged alittle bit. The second half was much better, and especially, the last few minutes or so was excellent, IMO. I just wish they worked a tiny bit faster pace in the 1st half. And Jericho/Punk are two of my current day favorites, but overall, I think they could have done alittle better (especially in the 1st half). I don't know, maybe my expectations were too high for this match, but I wasn't expecting ***** either. I don't know, I just think both guys are capable of better. Still, this wasn't a bad match by any stretch, it was good, just not great, IMO.
Rock/Cena was a tiny bit better than I remember, but still very mediocre/average. The thing is, I never expected a great match to begin with. So, it's not like I had high expectations going in. But I think they pretty much worked to their potential at that period of time. Rock had only wrestled once in the last 8 years and that isn't a good match-up for Cena. Cena isn't good enough to carry a guy who had only worked once in the last 8 years to a very good/great match. Poor time allotment on Vince's part, too. No way these guys should have worked a half-hour. Way too long.
Undertaker/Triple H was just as amazing as I remembered.
