Please tell me I wasnt the only one who was hoping Cena would rush into the ring and beat up the Rock after the match.
They've been doing a decent job of messing with people a bit regarding a Cena turn. The promo last week, and the (admittedly mild) expectation that he was going to smack Rocky with the belt after he turned around. Still don't think it'll happen for a long time, but at least this isn't flat-out annoying like the Nexus storyline where everything was perfectly set up for him to turn, and they didn't do it.
Not a great show. The Undertaker thing is starting to become a real problem since they rarely put him on last...the crowd is always out of gas after whatever match he's in. That was a fairly fun match but didn't get the same reaction where I was that the matches the last few years did (ie even the non-fans watching with me were yelling at every near-fall by the end).
HHH-Lesnar was quite literally where nearly half the people passed out on the couches. Alcohol probably had something to do with that, but good god was that long.
Rock-Cena just seemed sloppy. The final few minutes put an Undertaker match to shame with all the finishes/teased finishes. Nice touch with doing the ending sequence from last year, having Cena counter it, and then having Rock kick out. Thought for sure that was going to be the end.
Don't know if they were trying to make a point about how "serious" that match was or what, but when Cena came out with no big presentation, and then The Rock did the same, I assumed that they were just short on time (even with cutting the mixed tag match).
Orton and Sheamus being total afterthoughts on the card (not to mention losing) makes me happy.
EDIT - I saw on the Observer site that "It's very cold and that's hurting crowd reactions a lot" as well as "Based on e-mails from people in the arena, the explanation for the weak crowd reactions is so many of the seats had obstructed views." So...there's that.
