I know this will be split, but that was a BRUTAL ending. Punk's reign was 400+ days. That needed 2 rock bottoms, in my opinion. Show me he was the champion for a good reason. Show me it was worth it.
That was horrifying.
Agreed. To end on a set up move was doing the reign a disservice. I know Punk is all about what's good for the business, but that wasn't the way to go down. Not only that, but he never connected with a GTS, no really good reversals, no false finishes, the match just wasn't that good.
I'm just really confused I guess. I'm hoping that tomorrow they have Maddox say that he was the one to put Rock through a table, with Lesnar's help, so they can get Punk back into the title scene. Plus, doesn't Punk get a rematch?
IDK, just very very let down right now. Some really lazy and poor booking tonight.
I would LOVE it if the WWE threw in a swerve where a photo with flash was snapped during the attack, and we see Lesnar is responsible and not Shield. Ultimately, they would have to reverse the second decision and make the first decision the final one. It would be absolutely amazing, but it won't happen. We distinctly heard Ambrose's grunting and growling.
the rock will always do silly promos and people elbow his way to the top.
stop complaining, he wasnt gonna be back to offer something new.
punks reign has been boring for awhile, we needed that change while the rock is available.
This is exactly how I feel. It was just so predictable and WM main event is Predictable. most people saw this coming ever since Rock said he was getting a title shot. Maybe it is just me but I like when WWE had a few surprises on the road to WM. I just hope Punk saves his rematch clause for WM. that would be good.
With the way things go some time, they'll scrap the rematch clause or sweep it under the rug this time around.
I love the ending. The blackout was perfect. It could go several ways. Either someone was trying to help the Rock win by making it look like the Shield or it was someone else attacking the Rock. Either way, you have to think they play up that angle since there was no definitive proof. I bet the win gets voided and the reign continues.
I would have preferred a Rock Bottom lead up to the People's Elbow instead of a spinebuster but maybe that table collapse did injure or limit him somehow? Though he didn't show any distinct signs but i know from experience that it might look worse off later on.
For me the highlight of the PPV was Chris Jericho.
Definitely, when he took out those guys before Ziggles eliminated him the crowd went wild. But we all know, he's not in it to win titles anymore, he wants to put younger guys over. I'd love too se Rock/Jericho promo again though...
