Really? I mean, I understand not necessarily being a fan of either of the guys in the match but, on the whole, I thought that it was a pretty solid match - not the best in the world but certainly worth a watch. It had a legitimate Wrestlemania main event atmosphere, which they haven't always achieved in recent years. If we're talking shit matches I can think of plenty worse.

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

I wouldn't say Rock vs. Cena was anywhere near the worst, probably one of the most disappointing WM main events though, considering a year's worth of hype was thrown into it, they should at least pulled a 4 star match out, but barely got 3.

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

Rock/Cena was never meant to be a ring classic. For what it was (an Icon vs Icon match), they pulled out a pretty good match. Not to mention it was Rock's first singles match in 8 years. The atmosphere, crowd and story behind the match was enough to make it main-event worthy, even if you think the match itself was not good (which most would disagree).

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 [ ]

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

On paper, it looked good. At the actual show, it faced stiff competition from End Of An Era (which any other year, would/should have closed the show) and Jericho/Punk.


The match came off kind of flat to me because Rock's ring rust and it seemed like Cena pretty much phoned it in. The build up somewhat delivered, especially in the final weeks but it only served for hype & nostalgia. Nowhere near Rock/Hogan, any of Rock/Austin and likely won't be as good as Rock/Punk. I can't blame Rock for being rusty and I can't blame Cena for not being a high caliber wrestler but IMO, the match comes of 10 times better to those who were in Miami and the atmosphere. IMO, Brock/Cena had the big fight feel, not Rock/Cena because something just didn't seem right.

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

I have yet to see Rock/Cena and this thread doesn't make me want to.

I'd honestly go with Miz/Cena possibly.

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

As weird as it may sound ROCK/CENA is the only WM Main Event (last match of the night) won by The Rock.

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

When you factor in all the promotion and hype for Rock-Cena is was by far the worst main event. It was suppose to be this larger than life match yet the feel of it was just awful mainly bc of Cenas lack of star power. It will go down as the biggest match since the Attitude Era but it was just crap imo bc WWE couldnt make a bigger star than Cena in all these years.

Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

Rock Vs. Cena is nowhere near the worst Main Event in Wrestlemania history. Not by a long shot.

I'll catch heat for this. I thought it was way better than Punk/Jericho for the title. That match felt a little flat to me. It had to follow an HIAC with 900 kickouts, which took the air out of it, and they literally tossed in the "Punk loses the title if he gets DQ'd stip" right before they walked out there for the match. I felt like that whole part of the story didn't click with the audience because they had no time to digest it. The effort was there, the ending sequence was good and the actually finish was cool, but other than that, I wasn't a fan. I thought their match at Extreme Rules was twice as good.
