I think he might be referring to the Rock Bottom on the floor outside the ring earlier in the match.

What a day. Just watched the match for the second time.
I can't believe some of the posts in here. What are you? 14 or what?
Yes, you could see that The Rock had/has ring rust, but to say this match was bad or horrible is just plain wrong. Seems to me that you never watched a Rock match in his prime.
He was never a jumping rubber ball like Rey Mysterio or an awesome technician like Shawn Michaels. The Rock's matches were always about telling a story and making the opponent look like a million bucks.
And exactly this happened with Cena as well as Punk. Punk looked like legit a threat to The Rock and therefore it was not clear until the end who is going to win. That's what I love about wrestling.
It was a great old school match with great story-telling and an awesome "AE" ending. The parts of the match were beyond awesome. First they went berserk on each other with Punk getting the upper hand, then he tries to wear Rocky down with the shots in the mid-section. Comeback from Rock after Punk's "injury". Then the awesome Anaconda Vice/Sharpshooter "intermission". Bam People´s Elbow. Light goes out. Punk wins it and the venue goes into absolute silence. Vinnie Mac comes out and bam match restarts. New Champion. Just incredible.
Punk btw was awesome and sold his "injury" to perfection. I hope we see a rematch at Elimination chamber because I have not enough of Rock vs Punk.
It's a shame that the announcer table broke before the Rock Bottom. Would have been an awesome skit of the match. But that's live entertainment. No problem for me.

I cannot wait what they are going to do on Raw tonight.

I pre-read the boards earlier today and the reaction of the Punk fans makes it all more worth.

Hope you enjoyed those painful days because never again will Punk bore people in the main event spotlight this prominently for so long. Thank God the nightmare is over! I'm about to download the whole thing to enjoy the show and mark out! Still can't believe that indy midget no longer has the title on him. Is this a dream?!?!?!?

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HELL YEAH!!!!!!!! The nightmare is indeed over. Now i can watch wrestling without having the urge to throw up.

The Rock winning the title for the first time in ten years and a 434 day long reign ending is more unique than your average Wrestlemania match. And you need to put it in proper context because kicking out of finishers isn't something that's left for WM these days. It happened several times on the smallest PPV's last year.

And you using straw man arguments is rather destroying your own argument than helping your case.

I certainly don't think that it's unwarranted criticism to want such a big match to have a more exciting ending. For me personally it doesn't have to be kicking out of finishers, it can be done in other ways as well.

I'm inclined to ask if you two are related to the "it's still real to me, dammit" guy. It's cute that people can care that much.

I think Punk fans are more pissed about the outcome then Punk himself, he's a millionaire who got a year long title reign and will most likely get the belt back after Mania.

I think what annoyed me a bit was the fact we didn't get one GTS from Punk. Did make him look strong though considering it took a Sharpshooter, The Rock bottom on the outside and two Peoples Elbows to beat him.

CM Punk pinned The Rock after one power bomb through an announce table.

I don't get why so many people are pissed. Punk held the title longer than anyone in the past 25 years. Longer than The Rock, than Cena, Austin, Taker, Trips.
And besides, the crowd went 50/50 last night. The indy guy splitting the crowd against The Rock. Suck on that you stupid Attitude Era marks

Meltzer said it was a GREAT match. When's he ever been wrong about anything?

Thank you Rock for finally ending that abortion of a reign. Worst WWE reign of all time, easy.

Loved the way Punk "won" just to fool the smarks

Punk fans have had things there own way for too long....they deserve to suffer for once

Hopefully Punk will be depushed and buried now
