Title This: WWE Elimination Chamber Reaction

The RockThe Main Event

The Rock defeated CM Punk to retain the WWE Championship. Last months match was better, by a considerable margain. The match was different from the very beginning, as both men were trying to feel one another out. While many people will appreciate the chemistry and mental psychology, I felt like it was just a little slow for my liking. Do we really think that CM Punk was going to overpower The Rock time and time again? I do love the attitude he possesses after each takedown. It was the little things that made this match interesting for me. Paul Heyman was able to go 1…1 and a half… 2.. you're getting closer. THAT is a prime example why he is so valuable to help a feud reach the next level. He has done that for Punk and did that for Lesnar, and his value to them are unquestioned. The match was more technical, and the excitement came when the last few minutes came about. After a Rock Bottom that did not break the table, Punk was able to get in the ring and the count to 10 began. The Rock came back firing, and was able to get his offense going. He would hit a People's Elbow, but only a two count this time. The referee that "twisted" his ankle was a complete joke. It was frustrating at times where they could not let Punk and Rock tell the story, and more outside pieces told us the end. Both men deserved better, but the match did what it needed to do. It made Rock look like Superman, while Punk came so close to beating the Hollywood star. It will separate them, but where does Punk go from here? Please give us Taker vs. Punk.
