HBK and John Cena
March 26, 2007 11:28pm CST
What do you think about HBK giving his sweet chin music to John Cena right after they both did a Can you see me now knuckle shuffle to Batista after the undertaker left the ring? It was dirty and uncalled for in my book. If it was at wrestle mania I would understand, all for one, look out for numer one and all that stuff. But what he did was wrong and it makes me think less of him. I will always like HHH but HBK is slippen away from me. What is your opinion on this matter?

it's all in the name of Wrestlemania. Remember, last week, both Cena and HBK were already laying the groundwork for something like this. I actually expected something like this, although I can't say that was what I had in mind, but I thought it was about right with the program. This means that, instead of having two different "faces" going into the main event, now the main event once again polarizes the fans with who they will support. I also thought that Wrestlemania needed the hype behind that match. Every other match that was big was also put over on Raw tonight. Whether it was the Melina-Ashley feud or the "Money in the Bank" match push with the "Cutting Edge" show, to even Bobby Lashley getting mauled by Cane and Murdoch, Chris Masters, Johnny Nitro, and Umaga. Hell, even Kane/Great Khali was put over to a certain degree. I think this only makes the HBK-Cena match more appealing. It'll be interesting cause I don't know if the WWE wants to take Cena off the WWE Championship. He's been one of the most polarizing champions in recent memory, , but I don't think that either HBK or Cena could have enough to be a definite "heel." I personally would love to see Bobby Lashley in Raw, if only to put one of those guys over (the winner at WM23) as a "heel."

Ratings are always better when you have a good guy and a bad guy fighting.Wrestlemania is the #1 sporting event of the season for WWE and to make it a spectacular as possible they need all the big names.HBK has played a face and a heel over the years and does both well.When the day is over HBK is just Shawn Michaels doing his best to improve the buyrate.Did you notice in the match itself it was still Cena being jeered/booed?Maybe Shaun is going to help "put Cena over".
