Re: Tell me, does anyone here really want to see Rock vs Cena again?
I didn't want to see the rematch in the first place, honestly, but as more time passes, I want to see it even less. I don't care about ratings or buyrates or any of that shit, I am just speaking from a fan perspective.
I'm to the point now where I don't even want The Rock to win at The Royal Rumble & I certainly don't want John Cena to win the Royal Rumble match itself. That is the worst-case scenario for me.
The first match was billed as "once in a lifetime." We watched all the build-up to The Rock making his return and being the Wrestlemania host two years ago, for a shitty John Cena Vs. The Miz main event. Then we watched for a whole year while they built-up John Cena Vs. The Rock, so Rock could win in his hometown of Miami. Now I don't want to see another whole fucking year of lackluster build-up for the goddamn rematch.
I don't really care about The Rock anymore & I certainly don't care about John Cena. I'm tired of it. It's boring & old hat now. It feels like we've literally been watching the exact same thing for three straight years now. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
I usually like The Rock as a performer but since coming back this time around, he feels like a parody of the Rock of old. His lines are corny & make me roll my eyes. I don't want to turn this into some pro/anti-Rock thread or pro/anti-Punk thread as it's not about that & I certainly know that some people are tired of C.M. Punk lately too due to his lengthy WWE title reign. However, I have seen Rock/Cena. I have seen Punk/Cena & at the Rumble we're going to see Punk/Rock. If 'Mania is like Punk/Rock/Cena IT'S NOT ANYTHING NEW STILL.
I *do* like C.M. Punk a lot & think he's far & away the best thing going in WWE, entertainment wise, at least to me. Again, nothing to do with ratings or merchandise sales or any of that shit. He entertains *me*. The Rock of yesteryear was incredible too. If we can get current Punk with past Rock that's the best WWE can give us. I don't want Cena telling lame jokes, or Rock coming up with goofy nicknames or Punk having to break the fourth wall to get heat. I want two guys that are both really good at what they do fighting over the top prize in the industry. Not talking about Twitter trends, or movie shoots or breakfast cereals.
It's really scary to me that Wrestlemania could be:
C.M. Punk finally getting his comeuppance from Ryback (possibly for WWE title)
It can't get any worse than that for me, honestly...
