Never been more proud to be a wrestling fan
Yeah, Cena won. I've never been his biggest fan, and at many points I've been one of his biggest detractors.
But him and Punk put on a damn clinic tonight. I'm sure we'll all start dialing back our ratings as we start 'dissecting' this match and all of its moments, but let's be real: this is what wrestling is all about.
As much as certain 'pay-per-views' work as full packages, you know that we watch wrestling for the moments, the matches, and the promos that have us as enticed and as on edge as this match did today. I could care less about who goes to Mania and what the card looks like: wrestling works best when you got two guys giving it their all, turning what could be a decent bout into something spectacular.
I am far from enthused that Cena won, but damn if they didn't tell a story. Damn if that wasn't fantastic. It's pretty hard to be an open fan of this era, but I'd say that I'm damn proud to watch a product that'll throw out a match like that.
