It sure was a roller coaster of a Wrestlemania. There were some pretty high highs, and some very low lows. The show was designed to reminisce the older Wrestlemania cards with the big match feel. And they successfully did that. John Cena vs. The Rock was all that everyone talked about. This show no doubt just broke the all time Pay Per View record for the most buys because of that match. They decided to emphasize the WWE Championship, and the “End of an Era” match as well, while making the rest of the show a true under card. It was actually represented so much as an under card that half the show was over in the first hour. Only three matches had emphasis put on them. And only those three matches were good.
They decided to not use many backstage segments or videos this year. Which I liked. Although they had dozens of legends and Hall of Famer’s backstage such as DDP, Iron Sheik, Kevin Nash, Mike Tyson, etc… they only used Mick Foley as a guest in a segment. Only CM Punk had a backstage interview before his match. This was truly unique. They also decided to use a new format where they would have one participant enter the ring, followed by the highlight video, then the second entrance. I personally hated this concept. Hype videos should only happen before entrances. I felt that the separation in entrances killed too much tension.
Overall, it was a decent show. Decent. Three matches were very memorable. The rest was pure garbage. And I mean garbage. The terrible musical acts added nothing to the show, the backstage segments were very weak, and there wasn’t any nostalgia other than the Triple H vs. Undertaker match. Let’s take a look at the results for Wrestlemania 28.
Sheamus defeated Daniel Bryan to become the NEW World Heavyweight Champion- All of my followers will already know my reaction to this match. Pure anger. And I mean anger. The match lasted 18 seconds. Daniel Bryan had an epic entrance down the ramp to a gigantic pop from the crowd. There were dozens of “Yes” signs in the first couple rows. The crowd chanted Daniel Bryan very loudly. Then the crowd began to chant “Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes.” One of the biggest reactions of the entire night. Daniel Bryan then had his pre match kiss with AJ. When he turned around he was Brogue Kicked and pinned. That was it. I was in immediate shock. I first contemplated throwing my phone through the television. Then I contemplated turning the tv off and not watching the rest of the show. The main thing that angers me is how Daniel Bryan has been talking for years about how exciting it would be to be in a main event of Wrestlemania. I was immediately angry that they decided to put this match on first. I also hate how they denied us this match for two consecutive years. If you remember, this same match happened last year and was bumped from the Wrestlemania card. It was a dark match. I’m also angry that after an epic title run, Bryan lost his title quickly. The main thing that angers me was how great his crowd reaction was…and then the outcome. We were denied the chance to see an amazing show stealing match. No matter how great the rest of the card could have been, this Wrestlemania already left a bad taste in my mouth because I was denied of watching Daniel Bryan on the biggest stage of them all. I’m now going to make a shocking but completely true statement….The decision to have Daniel Bryan drop his title in 18 seconds at Wrestlemania 28 was the worst decision in wrestling history. I stand by that statement. This Wrestlemania was not great because the best wrestler in the world did not compete on it. We were denied from the best possible product they could have put on. I’ll have trouble sleeping tonight because of this.
Kane defeated Randy Orton- And he did it clean. The clean part really surprised me. The finish was a chokeslam off the second rope. Since my Raw Recap article on Monday I decided that Kane probably would win this match. I was thinking about how bad it would have buried Kane to lose to Cena and Orton on back to back Pay Per Views. Orton had nothing to lose by jobbing in this match. He’s been pretty successful during Wrestlemania the past few years. The match was pretty standard and boring overall. A basic psychology of Orton not being able to gain the upper hand. As the match continued Orton realized that he needed to do something big to put Kane away. When he went for that big risk off the top rope, he was caught in a chokeslam for the finish. I figured Kane would win, but I wouldn’t have guessed that it would have been clean. The match was pretty much a waste of time as we all expected. Orton vs. Ziggler or Orton vs. Miz would have been much better.
Big Show defeated Cody Rhodes to become the NEW Intercontinental Champion- This match should have been the 18 second one like I predicted. I honestly think that was the original plan. Once people like me figured out their plans they decided to change it. Hell they probably switched the Rhodes and Bryan 18 second thing in spite of me. Rhodes immediately ran out of the ring as the match started to kill the quick finish thing. From there the match was not very impressive. There were several botches. There was also an awkward moment where Big Show was groggy and had to spin around groggily because he was facing the wrong side. He hit a pretty terrible and botched spear for the turn. After that came the WMD for the finish. Another big waste of time.
Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos defeated Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres- This match was awful. The crowd chanted Daniel Bryan and “Yes Yes Yes” throughout most of the match. They actually chanted for Daniel Bryan during the first 4 matches on this card. Hopefully WWE got the picture on how much they dropped the ball on that match. Maria flopped around the ring in this match and was carried by the heels. Kelly Kelly actually used an impressive 450 Thesz Press off the top rope at one point. That was the only highlight of the match. They decided to job their Diva’s Champion who is supposed to be invincible, to a talk show host. Maria got the win via rollup. The crowd was pretty dead and the wrestling was pretty awful.
Undertaker defeated Triple H- Excellent story. The match itsself was not great, but the story was amazing. Both men had epic entrances. Unfortunately the on set camera kept losing connection so most of Triple H’s was cut off. I’m not quite sure why the Hell in a Cell was really needed. There was only one spot where Triple H was rammed into the steel. Shawn Michaels was really involved in this one. He spent the early going being impartial. Triple H began to dominate with a steel chair. Multiple chair shots to the back of Undertaker. And I mean multiple. He must have hit him at least 20 times. It sucks that they aren’t allowed to use chair shots to the head anymore. That aspect was really missed here. Chair shots to the back just isn’t the same and doesn’t have as much believable emphasis. Triple H pleaded with Shawn to stop the match but he wouldn’t. So Triple H turned to the sledgehammer. He began to repeatedly beat Undertaker with the sledgehammer. There was a point where Shawn thought about calling for the bell to stop it. Triple H attempted a sledgehammer shot to the head, but Michaels stole it from behind. Undertaker choked him out with the Hell’s Gate because of his attempt to throw the match. Another referee came in but was chokeslammed. Michaels regained consciousness and delivered Sweet Chin Music to the Undertaker. That was a false finish near fall. Undertaker eventually took back control and began to beat Triple H with the chair. Then in reverse psychology from last year, Undertaker was in charge of putting Triple H down. Triple H realized that he was finished, gave the “suck it” sign, and walked into a sledgehammer shot. Shawn Michaels turned his back so that he did not have to watch the brutal finish. Undertaker put Triple H down for good with a tombstone to become 20-0 at Wrestlemania. The three walked out together and hugged on stage. That hug could have signified the last match ever in the careers of Undertaker and Triple H. What a classic moment these guys made tonight.
The Hall of Famers were introduced to the crowd. Edge had tears in his eyes. Mike Tyson kept doing the DX chop.
Team John Laurinaitis defeated Team Teddy Long- Each guy got their few minutes to wrestle. Kofi, Truth, and Ryder hit a pretty cool triple 450 splash to the outside. Great Khali was booed. Ziggler was pretty good. Mostly everyone else was pretty non existent. Zack Ryder was tagged in for the final shine. He took out both Ziggler and Miz. He was about to win the match when Eve Torres got into the ring to do the “Woo woo woo” fist pumps with him for the Broski Kick. When Ryder noticed she was in the ring he turned around to get her out. Miz connected with the Skull Crushing Finale for the win. I was very happy to see Miz get the pinfall. Well deserved. I was also happy to see Ryder involved in the finish. Instead of making Ryder a non factor, which I feared they would do, they decided to make him a focal point of the match. After the match was over Eve kicked Ryder in the balls. A classic heel move. I’m glad they decided to make the Ryder and Eve storyline more important than the GM storyline. This whole match was basically booked to put Ryder over as a face. Well booked.
Alex Rodriguez and Torrie Wilson were shown at ringside. I threw up. Way to ruin my night with a Yankee.
CM Punk defeated Chris Jericho- Match of the night. They put on a psychology and a wrestling clinic. Very stiff match. Every move had a purpose. A true classic. Jericho’s jacket added the colors red and green to it. That was impressive. CM Punk had a massive entrance with fireworks that were set off behind the arena in an open field. This is a match you must go back and see. An excellent striking and submission based match. The Walls of Jericho and Anaconda Vice counters were amazing. The chain wrestling was great. The psychology of the body was epic. This truly was match of the night and one of the best wrestled matches in WWE history. It was as good as I imagined it would be, plus more. The only downside was that a late stipulation was added by Laurinaitis where if Punk was disqualified he would have lost his title. Because of this new concept the beginning of the match was nothing but Jericho trying to get Punk to get himself disqualified. I was worried for awhile that this psychology would dominate and change the entire match. Thankfully those two geniuses in the ring decided to only use that as a match starter. It was a well wrestled match the rest of the way.
Brodus Clay came out and danced. Then he called his mamma. A whole crew of bridge club mammas came out and danced. It was funny. It was just very weird to see that right before the main event of Wrestlemania.
The Rock defeated John Cena- I’m surprised. I really am. Didn’t see that one coming. Towards the end of the match I saw it coming though. The wrestling aspect wasn’t anything special, but it didn’t have to be. The hype of this match was so large that it could carry itself. Very good chain wrestling at the start from both guys. The Rock was impressive. From there it was pretty much a lot of big bumps with Cena targeting The Rock’s ribs. All of the moves in their arsenal was used. There were a bunch of false finishes. The Rock jumped off the top rope, was caught by Cena, and was hit with an Attitude Adjustment. I thought that was the finish. The Rock kicked out. Right then I knew that The Rock was being put over. And you could see it in Cena’s face that it had to be that way. He pretty much said, that’s all I can do to win now I have to put this guy over. Cena tried to steal The People’s Elbow and was hit with a Rock Bottom. That was the finish. I’m not sure if The Rock couldn’t put his ego aside for the betterment of the company, or if Vince McMahon just simply wanted to put The Rock over. Either way Cena looks like a million bucks for doing what he did. He showed a lot of class. Kudos to Cena. Job well done. You just built the biggest match of all time and put the outsider over with class.
Decent Wrestlemania overall. Everything was black or white. Either great or awful. 3 matches were great. 5 were awful. Plus the best wrestler in the world didn’t get to compete. I feel deprived. I’ll be angry about this for a long time. I sure am glad I didn’t attend this show in person.
Please leave comments. I want to hear and interact with everyone’s comments on this show.
Who do you mean as the best wrestler didn’t compete?
Daniel Bryan didn’t compete.
To summarize Wrestlemania in one sentence…The Great Khali got in more offense tonight than Daniel Bryan did.
WM28 was better than WM27 by a long shot. So at least they improved over the course of a year. In terms of my level of entertainment, I would give the show a B-. And that is purely because of Taker/HHH and Punk/Jericho.
Match by Match Run Down:
Bryan vs Sheamus….I actually predicted that this would open the show. But the match (if you can even call it that) was just stupid. The second it was over I thought…”I can hear Mark Brown screaming from here.” Damn that really sucked. I was screaming YES YES YES along with Danielson as he made his way down the ramp. All the YES signs in the crowd were absolutely awesome. Sheamus winning was ok….its just I wanted it to be a helluva lot longer than 18 seconds. Stupid stupid stupid. This was their chance to establish Bryan as THE top heel. He didnt have to win, just come off strong. Jobbing in 18 seconds is not strong. Huge sour taste in my mouth after this. Awful.
Kane vs Orton…..This match went longer than I thought it would. And that is not a good thing. I understood the psychology and even bought into it, but the fact that this match went longer than a world title match with one of the top 3 pure wrestlers I have ever seen disgusted me. I really think the Cena/Kane rise above the hate storyline should have been used with Orton and Kane. Kane could have tried to get Orton to rise above the voices in his head or something to that effect. This match was irrelevant. I didnt care either way b/c there was no build for it. Moving on…
Big Show vs Rhodes…..should have been the 18 second match like you said. Horrible match that I really didnt care about to begin with.
Divas match…..The Daniel Bryan chants during this match lasted longer than his actual match, which was about an hour before this happened. Nuff said.
HHH/Taker….This was just bloody fantastic. I thought Taker and Hunter did rather well considering they hardly ever wrestle and they are old. I was a little upset with HBK interfering when HHH tried to hit Taker in the head with the sledgehammer. Makes me believe HHH really could have won. And you make a heck of a point about the chair shots to the back. 20 back shots are not nearly as impressive as 2 head shots (Benoit comes to mind here…oh well). Not gonna lie, I teared up after the match was over b/c this could very well be the last time we see Taker in a match. Favorite superstar as a kid. Love the man.
GM match….this was the most satisfying ending of the night for me. I was very very happy to see the Miz actually record a pinfall, and happy to see Ryder involved in the decision. I think it would have been awesome if after Eve kicked Ryder she went up the ramp and began making out with Miz. It would have been dejavu of the Kane/Edge/Lita storyline. Would have been nice to see Ziggler do something, but hey…what can you do with 29 guys in the ring at once. Hopefully this gives Miz some mojo and gives Ryder something to work with.
BOOOOOOO AROD. YAYYYYYY Torrie Wilson.
Punk vs Jericho…..match of the night. By far. Very far. Stupid DQ stipulation really bugged me in the beginning, but it almost seemed like Punk and Jericho decided to ignore it after a while. They realized this match had wayyyyyy to much potential for that crap. All that really needs to be said about this was that it was pure wrestling. Period. Just phenomenal stuff. Happy to no end that Punk won. BEST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL at Brodus. Good way to allow the fans to catch a breather before the main event.
Absolutely peeved at the stupid concert crap before the Cena/Rock match. This is not MTV, this is not a Flo Rida concert. This is Wrestlemania. I want wrestling (Daniel Bryan reference). Not some stupid rap crap that makes my ears bleed. Ok ok ok….from an entertaiment standpoint, I was very entertained by the Rock vs Cena. They didnt put on a Punk/Jericho-esque match, but they did the absolute best they could considering their styles. And the crowd was HOT, which makes it all the more enjoyable. Absolutely HATED the ending. And hate is not a strong enough word here. Tore my apartment up afterwards, lol. I was marking out like crazy. I have absolutely positively zero respect for the Rock. None whatsoever. I knew from the start when it took him 25 minutes to just get off the darn stage and begin his walk to the ring that it was going to be a long night. Why did he go over?!?!?!?!?!? makes zero sense at all to me. I know it was his hometown and I know all his beloved marks wanted him to win, but he did NOT need this match. After Raw tomorrow, hes gone for another 300ish days. Cena is staying. I just dont understand the thought process behind having Rock bark at Vince a year ago because Cena says some not nice things about him, Rock makes about 7 appearances over the next year, Cena shows up everyday, Cena wins the battle of words leading up to the event, Cena shows more passion while doing so, Cena is the current face of the company, Rock hasnt been for like 10 years, Rock is leaving when its over…Rock wins. Can you say EGO? My goodness does he have a big one. Yeah they could face each other again at Summerslam or at WM29, but it wont be the same. Cena needed to win this match. He really did. Such a shame and such a disappointment. Rocky…you suck. I hate you. Stay in Hollywood and dont come back. Cena….you are the effing man. I love you. You already had my respect, but you proved to the world that you are a class act and are worth tons simply because you were willing to job to Mr. Ego. Very upsetting.
At least Punk won. Thats my only solace.
Your B- is fair. I’d go with a C. Lol to you hearing me screaming after the Bryan match. I actually sat in shock. I froze. It’s 1:26 am and I’m still angry I didn’t get to see Daniel Bryan wrestle. I don’t feel as if I can sleep until I see his Wrestlemania match.
Kane vs. Orton didn’t deserve a paragraph from either of us.
Agree on Big Show vs. Rhodes. An irrelevant mismatch. Who actually thought they would make a good pair? These writers blow.
Undertaker actually didn’t bump a lot lot in this match, but they really had a great match for the little they did. It was mainly just brutality. I liked Michaels interfering. He kinda had to at some point. He needed to be a major part of the story.
The Eve/Miz thing is a good idea. I like the idea better with Ziggler though. I hate when everyone knows that a wrestler is in a real life relationship and they pull those kinda things. I don’t think that would be fair to Maryse who was sitting up in a skybox watching Miz. Jericho/Christian/Trish would have been another good reference.
I like your comment about Jericho and Punk ignoring the DQ storyline. I was actually going to write that myself.
I don’t really know what else to say about Rock/Cena other than it was Vince McMahon’s decision. Vince and the writers must have a plan. Maybe Cena actually will turn heel from this. Maybe a huge Cena storyline is coming from this. Something has to stem from it. If there wasn’t a bigger plan than this really was a pointless idea. We just have to wait and see now what the bigger plan is. There is a very real chance though that The Rock just refused to put Cena over. That really could be the case. And Cena is a great guy for agreeing to put him over for the betterment of the company.
your right…its like Daniel Bryan wasnt even on the card. Its like he pulled a Christian or a Del Rio and just wasnt there. Very upsetting. I will agree…this was one of the worst booking decisions of all time.
Your right…Ziggler would be perfect for the Eve/Ryder storyline. He seems like he would be good at calling Ryder a chump and other similar things.
Cena going heel would be pretty awesome from an entertainment perspective, but then they gotta deal with the losing little kid merch stuff and all that jazz. I still think turing Cena heel would be a horrible business decision. But I will be patient. We will see where this goes. It better go somewhere, or I will feel like I wasted the past year with my religious tracking of this storyline
Not one of the worst…it was the worst. I stand by that. I might as well not sleep until I see Raw. Don’t think I can sleep until I watch Daniel Bryan wrestle.
They already did Ryder vs. Ziggler but it wasn’t really ever finished. I would really rather see Ryder vs Miz. I wish they would have built that for this show.
Cena won’t turn heel. I was using that as an example of having a bigger picture. I’ve said since the start that Cena wont turn heel. It doesn’t fit his character. It wouldn’t make sense. Especially after all this. I can’t really think of where this can go from here. I hope they have a bigger picture. But knowing those writers they might not. Does Cena lose his smile and quit? Nah. Does he go on a losing streak? Nah. Do other heel legends come back to try to bury him like The Rock did? Because these legends hate Cena and want to tarnish his legacy forever? Hmmmm. They could start with Lesnar doing that. That would make sense.
I feel the same way about Rock/Cena as you do about Bryan. I think the Rock/Cena ending was the worst booking ever. Bryan was horrible for differen reasons. He didnt do anything. It was worse than the Benoit/Orlando Jordan opening match at Summerslam 06. Lasted like 15 seconds(I was there…thats how I remember that). Bryan was a World Champion…and didnt wrestle at Wrestlemania. So freaking disappointing. Creative just took a massive dump on all of us tonight. Blech.
Wowzers you blew my mind with the Lesnar vs Cena possibility. That is very intriguing. Like you said, the writers like to leave fans permanently hanging – Im still mad about the stupid anonymous raw GM. It buggs me that they used that for the better part of a year but never told me who it was. I hate stuff like that. But before I continue to beat a dead horse on the Cena/Rock issue, I’ll stop lol. Ive heard they are gonna announce the main event of WM29 tomorrow night on Raw…got any ideas? Im guessing Punk vs Austin…but I shouldnt get my hopes up, especially after WM.
I was also there at Summerslam ’05. I went to Wrestlemania that year in Los Angeles, and then to Summerslam in DC. Creative needs fired. That’s all there is to it. We need to send them emails.
Cena vs. Lesnar does kinda make sense if they do it that way. That was a pretty big jump of topics to move on to the anonymous Raw GM lol. I wish they would come up with something to. It’s not too late for them to turn that into a storyline.
If the main event for next year is announced on Raw it will probably involve Lesnar. Undertaker vs Lesnar is my guess. Austin vs. Punk makes sense but Austin is at home. Unless he flies out tomorrow. But if he did that they coulda used him at Wrestlemania for something. And he definitely would have gone two days early to be part of the Hall of Fame.
Daniel Bryan didn’t compete… Well granted but one point, putting him back in the hunt I think will make him a better champ in the end. Just like punk, I expected him to lose and claw his way back up to the top of the chain(even still an AWESOME match with jericho. In the end, if wwe creative gets it right, Daniel will end up being champ
That’s completely fine. I’m not angry that Bryan lost. I was okay with him losing. I’m angry that he didn’t get to put on an amazing match with Sheamus and show the world how great of a wrestler he truly is on the biggest pay per view of all time. We were deprived of getting to see him wrestle. I still can’t believe the night is over and I didn’t watch Bryan wrestle. I looked forward to that match more than any other. Bryan vs a bigger European style wrestler could have stole the show. He was amazing vs. Nigel in ROH. It could have been a similar battle with Sheamus. I can’t believe he didn’t get a chance to show what he could do in front of those millions of people. Not to mention the millions of people who don’t really watch wrestling and only went to a Wrestlemania party to see Rock vs. Cena. And I’m also not too sure that Bryan will go over at the end of this. I see Sheamus winning this feud and moving on to new competitors while Bryan puts on epic matches with Punk this summer. If they do a draft Bryan comes to Raw. They will probably main event Summerslam and have an iron man match eventually.
Punk vs Bryan at Summerslam in a 3 hour iron man match. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
Love the 3 hour iron man match idea. Hilarious. Yes!

Agreed, I felt like I was watching a Brodus match lol, The fact he can consider it AJ’s fault will make for a few more heel promo’s to cement him as the “Prick champ” but in the end he did lose. I really hope he makes a comeback but in such a squash match it will be difficult. I either see Bryan and Sheamus at extreme rules, or like you said, with punk. It’s obvious in the matches they’ve had the crowd loves them squaring off, not to mention their ROH history lol
Again, the stuff with AJ will be funny, the promos will be great, and building him as a prick will be great, but I was still deprived of seeing him wrestle tonight! I don’t care how great this all turns out for him, I’ll always be angry about tonight. His comeback after this squash won’t be tough to pull off because he never really was ready. It would be different if he tried to tie up, was overpowered, then beat. The fact that he was caught off guard makes it believable for him to have a normal match the next time they face off…which better be in the main event of Raw tomorrow. Because I’m not sleeping until that happens. I don’t want to see Sheamus and Bryan in an extreme match. I want a regular wrestling match. The extreme rules thing is a gimmick used to progress the matches and leave them from getting stale. These matches haven’t even happened yet! They aren’t ready for a gimmick.
B4 I elaborate,I gotta say apart from the 1st 2 nd the last 2 mins,the rest of the show turned out 2 b a hell of a ride…………..I actually started clapping after the Punk-Jericho match n felt a lump in my throat during d end of the “END OF AN ERA”match…………FUCKIN’ EPIC!!!!!!!!!!
First-off,u won’t believe me,Mark,bt d only thing dat came 2 my mind when I saw Bryan job in 18 secs was ur possible utter disgust at this,which z xactly d way I felt.The guy with probab;y the best reaction of the night z bumped off in 18 secs, n a TV host BITCH who I’ve never even heard of in my entire FUCKIN’ life gets 2 put on a “yuckfest” for 15 mins!!!!!!!!!!!(I hope u xcuze d xtra use of d F-word n u probably know why I’m upset)……………….The Creative Team needs 2 b fired.Period.
The HIAC match was nothing short of what I xpected it 2 b………….BLOODY,BRUTAL N BARBARIC.The intensity n the emotion was jst overwhelming n these 3 guyz showed once again why they “OWN” the so-called “showcase of d immortals”.Trust me,I’m not exaggerating……..bt I did feel pretty emotional seeing d embrace n the show of mutual respect between 3 in-ring geniuses……..MOMENT OF THE NIGHT!!!!!
BTW,”JOBBER” MIZ z finally gone………”AWESOME” MIZ Z BACK……….YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m not gonna waste mine or anyone else’s tym fretting on d other inconsequential matches……….so off we go 2 Punk-Jericho.Jst 1 word.TERRIFIC.Clearly 1 of d bst matches I’ve seen in recent tyms………….the attempted Frankensteiner from Punk,reversed into d Walls of Jericho,jst refuses 2 leave my mind……hats-off 2 both of u!!!!!!
Now the match which has consumed d majority of my attention for the past year,nd which perhaps left an un-replenishable sour taste in my mouth.Kids don’t wait for Christmas as much as I’ve waited for this match n I jst can’t tell u how disgusted I feel.I’ve already asked around a lot n apart from d sickest of sick sum bitches who don’t know a shit bout dis business,z happy with d outcome.I mean………..if a Rock win wasn’t illogical enuff…………he jst posed lyk an ego-maniacal bastard at d end of d match n didn’t even pause for a handshake!!!!!!!!………..hell………….he didn’t even luk at Cena………..talk bout sportsman spirit.I don’t give a crap bout d reason behind this nonsense…………bt I honestly felt like shooting every single motherfucker who was cheering him,square in d balls.Jst shows why Rock’ll never b in d league of Austin or Hogan……….every ounce of respect I had for him s been turned in2 sheer “HATE”.After such an epic build-up n unbelievable fan reaction during d match…….I really didn’t see this coming.The only solace z d fact dat I saw a rare look in Cena’s eyes when he went for d People’s Elbow……which kinda tells me sumthing big z coming….possibly a heel turn.I’d prefer a rematch in which Rocky jobs cleanly….for his rep’s sake.WWE better patch this up or they r gonna draw a lot of flak…………trust me.I hate 2 say this bt his movies suck n so does “ego-Rocky”.(I’ve decided 2 call him dat from now on.)
—————#ROCK’S EGO OUTWEIGHS HIS BALLS——————-
Pretty funny stuff that everyone thought of me when Daniel Bryan lost the title. I’m still angry right now. You can’t blame Maria for her Mania win. She came in to try to bring some exposure, she actually worked the match, and creative decided to put her over. Kudos to her. Creative does need fired though. It’s awful.
The End of an Era match was great. I’m equally happy that it’s finally over though.
I’m excited to see how they progress The Miz from here. He should get pushed by Laurinaitis see he won it for him.
I like how you bring up the Frankensteiner/Walls of Jericho. That was easily the spot of the night.
The Rock/Cena thing is what it is. A handshake would have been great. The Rock did come off looking highly egotistical. The only defense I have for him is the fact that he brought a lot of business back to WWE with this one match. He came back and brought viewers for the company. But in return he wanted more self promotion. I’m sure there will be a Rock vs. Cena 2. We really just have to wait and see what the plan for this angle is. That may be answered tonight.
Head shots weren’t used because they could cause seizure or concussion. I think that’s the whole point that Vince banned head shots. Also Triple H used that once on Undertaker at last year’s wrestlemania and I feel that was the reason Taker left on a stretcher. This time it was the other way around only that Taker and Shawn carried him. I thought the match was good, it was very emotional but I preferred seeing them use the steel cage. I mean that’s the whole point in hell in a cell right? Also they didn’t really wrestle for long. Their match last year was way better than this years. This years was kind of predictable. I almost turned off the tv when I saw Sheamus win in 18 seconds. I mean that’s cowardly of him. I am ok with him winning but come on! It was a world heavyweight title match for god’s sake and at the grandest stage of them all! Sheamus should be embarrassed of himself. What the hell was the point in making that match the first of the night then? Disappointing opening. Brodus clay’s act was entertaining but Jesus he is really getting on my nerves now. We want more action in the ring and less dancing from you clay. CM Punk certainly stole the show like always. I was thinking wouldn’t the match be much more awesome if Jericho had actually won? It’s just my opinion but am happy for Punk, I mean Jericho really had a lot of support from the crowd. The Rockbottom really caught me off guard. I never saw that coming. What on earth was Cena thinking? Was he trying to get more boos from the fans? He already has many doesn’t he? Mocking people’s elbow in front of The Rock’s people…wow. But I knew Rock would win. There was no way in hell he would loose in his own hometown and send those people home angrily. If it was disappointing to the fans then it would have been a disappointing ending to WM. I loved team Johnny’s victory. I can’t wait to see how this storyline develops. Big Show’s win was good but I sure hope they don’t bury Cody in the future. Was Eve not heel anyway? I mean we all knew all along Eve was just messing with Ryder right? At least I knew that…Overall Punk’s match was the best! Lots of twists and turns. Also many counter moves. Really saved the show. Also I hope we see another match between Rock and Cena, just like Austin and The Rock so they could each have a victory over each other so their status would stay the same. I am sure Cena will not turn heel and he will have a good comeback later on. What’s up with Kane and Orton storyline anyway? My ratings:
Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan – 1/10(1 point just for the shock)
Divas match – 4/10
Big Show vs Cody Rhodes – 5.5/10
Kane vs Randy Orton – 6/10
Team Long vs Johnny – 6.5/10
The Undertaker vs Triple H – 8/10
CM Punk vs Chris Jericho – 9/10
The Rock vs John Cena – 8.5/10
Overall – 7/10
I am so hyped up to see Lesnar! My wait is over. I really hope they give him a good fued. What do you think of
I don’t like the banned headshots thing personally. It’s part of the business. I’m sorry that Benoit went crazy. They really didn’t use the cell much at all. There was no point in it being there. They wrestled for a good half hour. That’s a pretty long time. I like this year’s match much much better than last years. This year really made a lot more sense and told a better story. I don’t think it was predictable at all.
I wanted to turn the tv off as well after the Daniel Bryan match. You can’t blame Sheamus. It wasn’t his decision. I’m sure he really wanted to put on a great match as well. I’m also not sure how long they will stretch this Brodus Clay thing out before he actually wrestles legit matches. It could be awhile.
I’m glad Punk won. He needed the big win on the biggest stage while officially being “the man.” Jericho doesn’t need the title. Cena doing the People’s Elbow didn’t appear to be his decision. You could tell by the look in his eyes.
I really don’t care about the Team Johnny thing to be honest. I really don’t like either guy. Cody Rhodes will not be buried. Don’t worry about that. Everyone already knew about Eve, but Ryder didn’t. That was the angle.
I’m sure there will be a Rock vs. Cena 2. Kane and Orton was pointless. I’m sure that awful storyline will continue now. Your very generous on your ratings of Orton and the GM match. I give them both a 5 because they were completely mediocre.
I really hope Lesnar debuts tonight. I want to see him too. He can attack Cena as a friend of The Rock to try to further tarnish Cena’s legacy. I think that would make sense.
