    well the 6 man divas tag match was booked after the title match haha

  2. Captain Ass says:

    @Jon I agree with your comments, including the Taker/HBK or Triple H/Taker match being at least second to last, and the WWE title match should always be last, IMO.

  3. Jon says:

    @Vangador_Calvo and he won’t agree with you because you are obviously too old for him … I’ve rarely heard old fans of anything, whether wrestling, music, movies, or tv shows, say that the new ones are better than the old ones …

  4. Vengador_Calvo says:

    Jon i don’t really that old, there are many new wrestlers better than Stone Cold, like Ziggler, Bryan, Rhodes, Miz, etc, but Cena? he is merchandising, he can’t wrestle.

  5. Captain Ass says:

    Actually @Vengador, Cena proved at Summerslam last year that he CAN wrestle, but it’s obvious that WWE wants to inhibit his wrestling skills on a regular basis. Cena is known for brawling and power, so that’s what they want him to do. At Summerslam 2011, it was proven that he CAN wrestle, but that WWE doesn’t WANT HIM to wrestle. Big difference there. Austin could also wrestle, but his Stone Cold persona was a brawler. WWE gives guys a gimmick and they are expected to wrestle as that gimmick.

  6. Jon says:

    @Captain Ass actually I said that the Taker/HBK match deserved to be the last match on the card as it was bigger than a title match. Matches like that are an exception though.

    As for MITB being a Royal Rumble equal … I just don’t see it that way. MITB is closer to a qualifying match than the Royal Rumble. At the same time the Royal Rumble match is seen as a Road to Wrestlemania thing which makes it more important than the title match as it sets the tone for the upcoming main event of Wrestlemania (which was unfortunately not the case in last year’s Wrestlemania).

  7. Jon says:

    @Vengador_calvo Btw thanks for not getting defensive on me calling you old, it was not meant as an insult. Anyway yes there are better WRESTLERS than Cena, though on that end Cena has proven that he can wrestle if given the right opponent. However WWE has constantly stated that WWE is all about entertainment and while Cena has his down moments he can be pretty good on the mic as well. Plus he is entertaining to the the kids which is WWE’s main target. I’m saying you’re old cause chances are you’re no longer a kid, which makes it irrelevant to WWE. For example I used to look up to Hulk when I was a kid but now I can see that he was a so-so wrestler and that his promos are hokey. I have to admit that Stond Cold and The Rock are still entertaining today but Hulk no longer is. I think Cena brings a sense of wonder to kids just as Hulk used to do. At least that’s how I see it …
