Yup. Cena would kill to get this reaction against any legend. The crowd went 50/50 at some moments. That was truly epic.

We are about to witness one of the worst title reigns in history. And I am a Rock fan.

He's part time. He's probably going to wrestle at Elimination Chamber in which he'll probably come out last so he doesn't have to do much, so he doesn't get gassed. He'll end up winning, probably by pinning Punk again. That will end up being Punks rematch clause. He'll then lose it to Cena at Mania, a person who can't even beat CM Punk.

How many people were disappointed with the fued and match, even if you wanted The Rock to win?

It was a shitty PPV overall imo until the last 2 minutes of the Rock match (after the match was restarted (basically as soon as The Rock started going on offense). But that match and fued was billed so vastly in favor of putting Punk over that the payoff wasn't even exciting because of it. It was just like oh okay, great, but I wish they booked that a hell of a lot better and differently than they did.

Outcome: good.

Practically the entire build and most of the match: Shit, because it was too focused on putting Punk over.

Entertainment value was really lacking because of it. Match was like 85-90% Punk offense. Awful. After the incredibly boring 400+ day CM Punk title reign, I wanted to see him get his ass kicked when he lost the title. Instead, they spent most of the fued putting him over. VERY shitty and disappointing payoff. His reign absolutely should not have been remotely as close to as long as it was if this was all they were ever going to do at the end of it. Such an epic waste of time and resources.

Jobbed?

He put him over. He made The Rock that new star. Sure, The Rock was big before that match but beating Hulk Hogan in front of a sell out crowd at fucking WRESTLEMANIA!?

Don't worry though. The Rock will be doing the EXACT same thing with Cena, this time though handing him the WWE Title in the process. Oh what a night that will be.

Cheer against the motherfucking Rock. That's fucking amazing. Never in my life I'd expect to see that. Cena must be a sad panda right about now.

It's crazy how the WWE did everything to convince us that the "Universe" was 50/50 on Cena/Rock last year, and Punk gets that reaction as a Heel.

If anybody was to beat Punk, I say Rock was the man to do it. I wonder how Rocks reign will be like till Wrestlemania. Oh and his Chamber defense will be interesting.

Is anybody really surprised? Especially after The Shield's interference in the match, we all knew The Rock was going to win... The bad thing is that Trish and Lita could have put on a better match, granted CM Punk is still likely legitimately hurt (notice the bandaging on his knee before the match), but there is no excuse for The Rock to be that terrible in the ring... Mind you, this match was decided when Cena predictable won the Rumble... Is it not enough that The Rock and Cena are telling us they are guaranteed to win their matches, then going ahead and doing so ? It's almost like a slap in the face with predictability. And now what? CM Punk is gonna feud with who? The Shield? They could've made a great stable with Punk at the head of The Shield, but instead they keep avoiding it like the fucking plague. It really doesn't matter who they put up against Punk at Mania, it will be a predictable loss for him. If he's in the WWE Title match, he's obviously not going to get the belt back.. It would have made more sense for him to be the Champion all the way until WM then drop it to Cena there, at least Cena could beat the Rock and Punk could complain about not actually losing and carry on another feud (as boring as that may sound, the booking would atleast be logical and 5x better). If Punk faces Taker, there is NO WAY Taker is gonna have his streak ended by Punk... He doesn't really have enough time to start a feud with Lesnar, and I highly doubt that Stone Cold is going to lace up the boots one last time, although out of all the matches available that would probably be the best one.

Well, at least now Punk's reign goes into history, and there will be more appreciation for it from a nostalgic standpoint dead, than it ever could've alive.

Punk/Rock's match I give ****. Awesome from the get-go. You could feel the hate and intensity from these two men and the two went at each other with everything they've built up in the feud. I loved the psychology and selling in Punk attacking the ribs and trying to cause internal bleeding on The Rock's part, and The Rock attacking Punk's leg after Punk "re-injured" it. The selling from both men was excellent and it made the match all the better.

The crowd, my god, I can't believe Punk actually split the crowd with Rock for 95% of the match. Wasn't expecting that, and it shows just how over CM Punk is that he could do that with The Rock on the opposite side of the ring in Phoenix of all places. Made the match all the better and really feel like an all-time big main event match that neither man was booed besides Punk during his entrance.

So I'm enjoying this match, and as I was thinking throughout and the past 6 months, nothing could ruin the result for me. Nothing could ruin the match. But boy oh boy, WWE loves to prove me wrong, doesn't it? It was extremely simple on how to end this. Either have Lesnar cost Rock the match, not in that darkness bullshit, but in plain sight after a ref bump, or have Rock pin Punk clean in the middle of the ring. There was no need for this controversial shit they did. First off it makes Rock look weak that even a minute after he was attacked, he still couldn't kick out at 3, and Punk gets beaten fairly easily and has his reign ended in unspectacular fashion with ONE people's elbow, and a Rock Bottom earlier granted, but still kinda silly for a man who's taken two AA's and two pedigrees and still kicked out. They could've at least had Punk kick out of the People's Elbow and then after a few reversals fall prey to the Rock Bottom to lose the title, but instead they go for the weakest shit they could think of.

So all in all, I really can't believe this. A match I thought would be bull-shit proof and have either a clean finish, or build to a mega Wrestlemania main event, ended up being full of bull-shit at the end. Both men look weaker after the match, the match is tainted in unneeded controversy, and we now have to look forward to Rock/Cena. The only solace in all this is if WWE use this to give Punk a reason to be in the Wrestlemania main event, but they still could've done that even if Punk lost clean as they could've had him use his rematch clause for Wrestlemania. That all being said and the bitching out of the way, I'm happy Rock ended the reign tonight instead of Cena ending it at Mania, and it's great to see Rock have the belt, period. Looking forward to his promo tomorrow night on Raw and looking forward to seeing what they do to build up EC with him.

And on Cena winning the rumble... what can I say? I'm all bitched-out right now. It sucks, but WWE seem hell-bent on making 2013 Cena's year, and we get to once again see Cena at the top of the mountain, which is going to suck, but oh well. It may be the perfect excuse I need to give WWE a rest, as long as they don't try some bull-shit like having Taker return full-time to feud with Cena, or Lesnar coming back full-time, or shit like that that would make me keep watching WWE despite Cena. Meh.
