I thought the promo was alright.

We all know Cena's winning anways, the least they could do is give us a couple of good promos. We deserve that much.

Do you want to know why I hate this match? Why people shouldn't subscribe to this crap?

The reason I say this isn't because the match itself wouldn't be of terrible quality, despite the hate Cena gets he does work well in the ring, and Rock still can put on a good match himself.

But we all know whats going to happen, and to me that's the biggest mistake and most pathetic thing WWE is going to do. Honestly, when you can already guess the outcome of the main event of NEXT YEARS WrestleMania, that's not good business. Let me explain.. Rock announced that at the royal rumble he will face the WWE Champion, whomever that may be. CM Punk has had the title for 200+ days, and I don't see him losing it anytime soon. They have already foreshadowed a feud between him and Rock with what went down last Monday night. So Punk makes it to Royal Rumble, Rock beats him and captures the WWE Championship and Cena wins the Rumble to challenge him, setting up Rock/Cena II and Cena's ultimate victory at WrestleMania.

To me, the predictability is pathetic.
I wrote that in fucking July, last year.

As someone mentioned above, maybe if it wasn't as predictable as hell i'd be more invested in wanting to see this and be more excited about it. But the fact is IT IS PREDICTABLE AS HELL. Why anyone wants to see Cena get his false redemption, I just don't understand.

Both of these men can clearly draw. The fans are invested in the backstory of this storyline. This match is a moneymaker just as the other matches you've mentioned were. Any sentiments you had on the quality of the match should be irrelevant to the discussion.
Rock/Austin isn't the comparative point ( and you can't compare those two since the build-up was muuuch better for WM 17 ). What I am saying is that this is the same match, the same stipulation, the same thing... Cena is saying that he can beat The Rock, that he will do everything to do it,blablabla,... I'm not talking about wrestling quality, I'm talking about why I should be interest in this match. I'm saying " What is the difference between WM 28 and WM 29 ? What is the big difference that makes the match we have this year totally worth watching if I had already seen the last one ? " What you said is good but that's still similar to the last match. So, if what you said is right, we will have a more agressive Cena who will bring it all against a arrogant Rock who will says that he is unstopabble ? In the promo I saw, it was something we could see last year. Just replace some words who talk about the last match, show it to someone i 2012 and I guarantee they will believe this is a promo that can happen before WM 28

What amazing promo? Segment was mostly trash except the last couple minutes where Cena did the "you didn't beat me" stuff which was pretty good but nothing spectacular. Cena and Rock having one watchable exchange in a 2 year feud does not change anything.

Because WM main events have never been predictable.

Oh wait what about most of the royal rumble winners being dead certs up until 2009? WM 20 one of the best WM matches ever in HBK/HHH/Benoit and everyone knew Benoit was going to win. Was still an awesome match.

I'll admit that while the last 5 minutes were good, very good in fact, (from Cena showing signs he's cracking to the physical altercation that may indicate that something may change within Cena), but still, it only elevated the segment for me from "meh" to "OK, that was alright." The first 10 or so minutes were dragging and a bit boring, with Cena once again resorting to kissing the host city's ass by referencing athletes/teams who once played there (McNabb) to try and get over. Still, like I said, the way it ended peaked my intrigue, for sure.

However, that does NOT mean I'm shelling out $70 to see this, especially since I already know the likely outcome (Cena wins, LOL). I understand it's your own opinion if you thought that promo was "fire" and had you "sold" on buying WM, but you're playing right into Vince's hands by doing that, buying his tricks and snakeoil.

I liked Cena pulling out the you can't see me stuff and then getting smacked with a Rock Bottom.

It may not be a heel turn, but it does feel like a character change is coming with Cena.
