i mean why would someone go for a rock bottom, when you can go for a go to sleep? it's just as illogical, only backed by the theme of them trying out new maneuvers.
while we're on topic, I think their Summerslam match from last year is still their best. But this one was pretty cool, really liked CM Punk's acting. Didn't think they did a good job no-selling though.
Because Cena still had that big move to pull out of the bag, Punk had already hit 2 GTS's and Cena kicked out of both, so he had nothing else of his own left to dish out, hence him going for a moonsault and the Rock Bottom, moves he's never used before.
Dunno, just thought it was only used as a way to have both guys shoulder's down at the end. I mean, why did they think Cena could even pull that move off. A middle rope bridging german suplex pin? Could Cena even do a normal german suplex bridge? It just looked awful imo, and they didn't need to risk the quality of the finish just to have both guys get pinned. Like seabs said, probably loads of other things they could have done without risking the quality and making the crowd not care. Just didn't like it personally. Like I said though, I absolutely loved most of the match, and they looked to be heading to their best match yet for the first two thirds of it.
I agree on the SS match being the best. Adored that match (MITB too, but the SS match took the in-ring work up a notch, and had the best finishing stretch last year imo).
