I'm sorry if you were expecting a technical classic, the match had Icon vs Icon written all over it, it was meant to include moves that would appeal to the crowd/casuals more than 'technical' moves that would appeal to the IWC.
I had no expectations for that match. And I've never said it was the worse.


I gave reasons why some might say it was the worst. For some, it's not all about the hype and nostalgia effect. Some might not care about technical wrestling but want to be entertained. End Of An Era was far from technical but was damn entertaining. Rock/Cena wasn't, for me and for many others because we didn't expect much from the match, anyway but a couple of restholds, spinebusters, 5 moves of doom, DDT's, Rock Bottoms and People's Elbow to close.


The match was just all hype.

I found Rock/Cena very average as a match but it wasn't the worst main event ever. Hogan/Bundy is up there but Miz/Cena takes the cake for me. Wasn't even the worst match on the card and it was still absolutely dreadful.

I'll go further and say it was the worst WM main event Rock was ever in.


It was hyped because it was probably the last match of this caliber we are gonna get,it was hyped as the men of this era vs the biggest star in history an icon vs legend match,if you expected it to be Angle vs Benoit its your fault,Cena wont do it and Rock was wrestling his first match in 7 years

the match is by all means a classic and it will go down in history as one

I didn't expect it to be Benoit/Angle because neither Rock or Cena are that caliber of wrestler.


I simply made my post in regards to you saying that butt hurt Cena marks who are still mad that Rock won, are the only people who didn't like the match. Ever rang your bell that different people have different expectations out of wrestling?


It might be classic to you but to other people, it might not be. And I never said it was the worst WM main event, as there have been far worse. But it was indeed Rock's worst main event WM match, which isn't saying much because Rock has had some high caliber opponents.


Bottom line, some people didn't like the match, for their own reasons and it's understandable.

It was terrible, but Cena vs. Miz was still worse. It really was that bad.

Default Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

Well lets see....


The bad ones that come to mind for me are:

- Hogan Vs. Sid at VIII was underwhelming, saved by the return of The Ultimate Warrior

- The Bret/Yoko/Hogan debacle at IX definitely deserves mentioning, though I will give it credit for being memorable.

- LT Vs. Bam Bam was bad. Really bad, but so was the entire show. At least LT wrestling was interesting on paper.

- Undertaker Vs. Sid at 13 was a borefest with a stupid finish. The only thing this match had going for it was "Well at least I get to see Taker win the belt" and even that was tainted by having heel Bret Hart help Taker win! It was clear they had no idea what to do for the ME here, and it is no wonder WCW Uncensored 97 (a throwaway B-Show) beat them in the buyrates.

- The Four Way at 2000 wasn't awful up until it came down to Triple H & Rock, which is what the main event should have been all along. Of course then they fucked it up by doing one of the worst endings in Mania history with yet another McMahon heel turn and basically saving the good ending for Backlash.

- HHH Vs. Jericho at X-8 was a disaster. People use Rock/Hogan and them having to follow it as the excuse, but lets not underestimate the shitty build up. Hell, shitty is a perfect word for it because Jericho, the UNIFIED WORLD FUCKING CHAMPION, was shown on live TV cleaning up dog shit on Stephanie McMahon's orders. How the fuck am I supposed to take him seriously after that? Stephanie was the villain of the match and Jericho was just a placeholder. It was doomed from the start.

- I hate Cena Vs. HHH at Wrestlemania 22. I am going to go Roger Ebert on North here: I hated that match! Hated hated hated that match! I hated that match! I hated every stupid, simpering, audience insulting moment of it! I've explained why at least a dozen times, so lets just movie on.

- HHH Vs. Orton at XXV....Jesus Christ almighty was this awful. Boring doesn't even begin to cover it.

- Cena Vs. Miz at XXVII, the main problem here was that the whole thing felt like a prelude to The Rock. We knew Rock was going to play some kind of role in this, so why did he sit in the back the entire match? We knew nothing would end until he showed his face. The match was boring as a result and Cena & Miz were really off too. I liked that they had Rock cost Cena the title, but their Russo-ish way of getting to that finish was pretty silly too.

Those are the worst that come to my mind.

Which would I say is the number one worst? I'll go with HHH Vs. Orton at XXV. It was horrible, boring, and just impossible to sit through a second time. It was pretty atrocious and had little in the way of redeeming value.

It's probably worse than Cena vs Miz, but good Lord, was the crowd on fire in the entire match.

Celebrities will always win.

Come to think of it, WWF misused Bam Bam Bigelow; he could've had a short WWE Title run, having the likes of Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker and Bret Hart go over him.

I cannot believe that there exists a person that justifies Rock/Cena going 30 minutes. It should've been 15-20 minutes. Hell Rock/Hogan didn't even go 30 minutes.

And how do you know all casuals around the world liked the match ?, Did you ask them personally ?

Rock/Cena was crap and i say that as a huge Rock Mark. Rock was Rusty & Cena just isn't a good worker.

ROCK/CENA was one of the best Main Events in WM history. Probably not the match itself, but the whole meaning of the match, the atmosphere, icon vs icon, etc. I was there and it was awesome!

On the Rock/Cena debate, I thought it was good. A solid B grade match. I enjoyed it just fine.

One of the best of all time? No. It was about 10 minutes too long. It was a 20 minute match stretched out for 30, and both guys got noticeably gassed. It also felt like they were trying to manufacture another Hogan Vs. Rock match and they came nowhere near that.

But was it interesting and fun to these two characters play off of each other? Yes, it was. Did I enjoy seeing The Rock wrestle again? Yes. Did I mark out when he won? Absolutely. I think those that say the match sucked are probably going a bit overboard as I saw nothing that would make me think it was terrible.
