Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I was at Reliant Stadium and witnessed the disappointment that was HHH vs. Randy Orton WrestleMania 25 main event. The match was booked completely wrong. This should have been a no holds barred fight with brawling in the all around ringside and in the crowd. There should have been run ins from the McMahons and Legacy. Chairshots, stair shots/spots, ring bell shots, etc. Most importantly, Orton should have won the damn match. In word to describe how I felt after watching this match live was underwhelmed.
I agree 100% with this. When it ended the only thought I could muster was "was that it?" and I barely ever have that kind of reaction. I have no clue whose idea it was to have the stipulation that the title changes hands on a DQ, but Orton at least knew it was the completely wrong way to go.
