I don't think it has anything to do with nostalgia, not in this day and age when I can go and watch Rock vs. Hogan on Youtube any time I like. I think if you showed someone today Rock vs. Hogan and Rock vs. Cena back to back, someone who had never seen either match, they would agree Rock/Hogan is the much better spectacle
Hogan/Rock was much bigger and had the 'feel' to it that Cena/Rock lost after their stretched out year long build up and repetitive 'lets insult each other like kids' promos that got old quick. Rock/Cena would have been legendary had it been Wrestlemania 27 when everyone was begging for it, not one year later when it had been shoved down our throats for the whole year. the WM 28 match was great and had a big mach feel, but not nearly the big match feel that 'Rock vs Cena' required.
Not Removing Until:
John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]
Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28
John Morrison wins World Title [ ]
John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena
KARLA LOPEZ, THE HOTTEST MODEL/ACTRESS ALIVE. Sheamus, Swagger, Wade, Dixie, Cesaro, Sami, DB, RKO, Drew, Del Rio, Cody, Punk, AJ LEE / (STAY STRONG, JTG, AND DREW ) CHAMPviaDQ = Great GFX. Karla in Pink
Give it 10 years. And then people will be all over Rock and Cena's WrestleMania match calling it GOAT. Guaranteed. Absence/Time makes the heart grow fonder.
I agree to the fullest. Absence make the heart grow fonder, while Presence make the heart grow weary.
Cena vs Rock(WM 28) is consider nothing but a wannabe Hogan vs Rock(WM X8) match, in 2012, In year 2022 when Cena is long gone and retired and Rock is pushing 50 years old, Cena vs Rock will probably be considered the GMOAT by the IWC, along with other matches in this era that the current IWC has shitted on like HHH vs Undertaker WM 27/28 and Punk vs Jericho.
