Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
I greatly preferred Ziggler/Orton to Punk/Cena. The break may come down to preferring build over spots - they spent that whole match making the Landslide DDT look dangerous, hit it once and it was huge. Meanwhile Punk and Cena doing their finishers over and over, and sometimes just hulking up to hit one yet again, got ridiculous to me. I'll take Ziggler desperately chasing Orton and leaping for the Sleeper Hold over anything from the main event.
Still liked Punk/Cena, but by the point at which Cena had taken two straight finishers and charged across the ring to herc Punk into a Fireman's Carry, it had jumped the shark for me. I agree with Seabs that the first half of that match was pure class, though, very akin to their MITB and Summerslam matches.
