Cena/Punk, Lesnar/HHH, now Cesaro/Kofi. That is the one you formerly said was an extended squash, all Cesaro, like ** right? Something along those lines.
This is why I ALWAYS like to watch a match twice. Although Brock vs Triple H in the Cage I didn't focus on the first time around so that on was in dire need of a reviewing. My first time watching Cesaro vs Kingston I was too busy focusing on how poorly Kofi worked instead of how well Cesaro did. Took the wrong point of view and it was daft of me to do so. Match wasn't about Kingston. It was all about Cesaro. I noticed this more on the second go around and by the third last night it was a done deal.
Cena vs Punk was an odd one. Live it felt good. Rewatch later that evening on youtube with no commercial breaks it came off 10x better. Don't know why, but I'll take it.
Despite my system of watching a match twice to get a full feel of it, I am normally set on my assessments most of the time after a first watch. Payback for example didn't change much the second time around. Knew exactly how I felt after the live viewing.

Which one, the first or the second?
Nevermind, you said Championship match. That was the giveaway. Whoops.
