They did have a significant feud during attitude era

Let them argue, then Stone Cold comes in on his atv, stuns both, stuns HHH again, drinks his cooler of beer, and leaves.

I was wondering why I never got on the Rock bandwagon but now I remember I was more of a DX and Stone Cold Guy. Rock was a douche.
We all knew this is how Rock Cena was going to end from the start of the feud. Still I think tonight leaves WWE in better standing than most people think. We're seeing that WWE likes to book things long term nowadays and the initial vibe coming out of the weekend is that Rock will probably headlining the HOF class, Taker and Lesnar are throwing hints about a match, and that leaves the door wide open for Punk v Austin next year.

I'm not a huge Punk fan, but I really think they're just scratching the surface with him right now and even though Cena is going to occupy the title scene Punk can do more right now away from the belt then he did during his entire 400 day reign.
I can't understand the point of Ryback losing. Since bursting on to the scene, he hasn't had a big win in months after coming out on the losing end in his last two feuds with CM Punk and The Shield now on the big stage, he loses to a guy that is in the twilight of his career? I could care less what Ryback did after the match, his credibility is in the dirt right now.

Wouldn't be surprised if they're positioning Henry to feud with Cena. Ryback was derailed long ago.

Super Bowl was just over 71000 right? I think Wrestlemania 30 should get a lot more than that.
So was the Ryback/Henry match as bad as fans have been saying?

enjoyed wrestlemania. all i was hoping was for the three main matches to be good, and they were. the only thing i didn't like was The Rock/Cena ending and the constant finisher reversals.
No real big entrances at Mania like in the past. They skipped the 8 man tag, which I could care less. Although, if I'm paying big money for a ticket I want to see what is advertised. Diddy Dirty Money sucked. No national anthem, I was surprised by that.

Best Match IMO - Taker/Punk,

Worst Match IMO- Ryback/Henry

I thought they always sang "America the Beautiful"?

The beginning of the show was a video acknowledging Hurricane Sandy, after that it went to the announcers and then to Sheamus' entrance.

Nothing as big as before, but I think Lesnar's was the best.



Him or HHH
