Discuss here.

Definitely not worth the $70. Extremely predictable event.

They should've just showed Punk-Taker and then ended the PPV.

- Shield v Orton/Big Show/Sheamus - *** (3)
- Henry v Ryback - *3/4 (1.75)
- Bryan/Kane v Ziggler/Langston - **3/4 (2.75)
- Jericho v Fandango - **1/4 (2.25)
- Del Rio v Swagger - *** (3)
- Undertaker v CM Punk - ****1/2 (4.5)
- Lesnar v Triple H - ***1/4 (3.25)
- Rock v Cena - ***1/2 (3.5)

MOTN: Undertaker/Punk

I know I am being generous with Cena/Rock. The last 5 minutes was good stuff and that sways my opinion this moment.

This was a 1 match show, folks. Kudos to those of you that knew Undertaker/Punk would tear it down. I though it wouldn't.

The last two matches were not very good.

Punk/Taker by far the best match of the night.

Biggest event for the WWE and it should have 3-4 good matches. This did not.

Glad I didn't get it. Will catch the Punk Taker match on YouTube tomorrow.

Did catch the end to see Rock try to pass the torch and the crowd not buy it. Vince doesn't care.

the PPV was a let down minus the Undertaker-Punk match, too predictable. The crowd also imo wasn't a typical "New York" crowd, Cena didn't get as much heat as I expected and it seemed they were worn out after the Taker/Punk match as well...the HHH/Lesnar match got no reaction until weapons were used

I actually told myself if Brock submitted to HHH I'd stop watching, thankfully that didn't happen

Would have been nice to have something exciting in that final match. Half of it was just exchanging finishers. Boring as ****.

Remember when a finisher would finish the match? And that a kick-out was so rare and actually meant something? Now it's like, if you don't kick out of 2 finishers you're a piece of crap.

That had a "Rock retiring" ending. I wonder if he's done? Even though, they're never really done.

I enjoyed most of it. Taker vs CM Punk well worth the money.

I thought Rock was already confirmed for Extreme Rulez and Summer Slam?

I want my 0$ and 4 hours of my life back WWE. The ****!!!!!!!!!!


The entire show was predictable match for match since January, and in this case of the main event since a year ago.

The only surprise finish was Henry winning clean but then they had Skip van Goldberg squash him afterwards anyway. I mean really? Really? REALLY!!!!!

Even the wrestling was terrible, save Taker-Punk.

I'd rather them not cut Albert/Brodus-Rhodes Scholars and had that go on last cause it probably woulda been better than everything else. And I'm not entirely positive over who woulda won that match either like I was with every other one.

The large venue doesnt help

I miss the old, smaller interactive WMs. Would have been great at MSG but it's unfortunate Vince has to have a pissing contest all the time and think "bigger is better"

I expected him to win. He can't put over anyone because his ego is bigger than his nose.

Cena has to turn heel this year..or next WM. No one can stand him and the boring chants will keep coming
