Wrestlemania 28

Seamus/Bryan - ****** (GOAT match of all time )
Orton/Kane - ***1/2
Show/Cody - **3/4
HHH/Taker - *****
Rock/Cena - *** for the match and * for the crowd = ****

Saving Punk/Jericho for tomorrow since it's late and I'm tired. Taker/HHH still holds up. I love every second of that thing. This was the first time I have seen Rock/Cena since I was there. It didn't hold up. I didn't remember the match being so slow tbh and I think it's very evident that Rock was a bit out of breath at times. Either that or he sells like a mother fucker lol. The memory of being there live and the crowd make it special though. I've had a change of heart and am now looking forward to the Rock/Cena DVD. It should be interesting to say the least, the documentary and backstage stuff anyways. Orton/Kane was much better than it had any right to be. Show/Cody was meh and I still don't understand why the fuck Show won. Ever since that loss Cody has been on a horrible downward spiral. He deserves better. Fuck Show, even if he cried lol. I'll watch Punk/Jericho tomorrow.

I don't remember liking the match with Orton but Kane is that kind of worker. I've seen so many of his matches described as "Better than it had any right to be", he seems to be the king of that.

Show/Cody was blegh ** maybe, Cody tried his best but Big Show has been the annihilator of all things good in 2012 and this was no exception. He won because Cody's heel schtick against him was making fun of the fact that he always flopped at Wrestlemania, and he's the heel so he can't actually be shown as right (god forbid.)

I have Rock/Cena at like ***, maybe a fraction more. I get how that would be a whole different experience actually live though.

I won't put a star rating on the cell match but I watched it like five times and it was good every time. It was kind of weird actually, the replays ran the whole week after Wrestlemania and every time I turned the TV it would be at the start of that match or gone a few minutes through. Every time, bar maybe once or twice.

If they shaved a few minutes off Rock/Cena it would have been much better imo. I still enjoyed it and I have the memory of being there in my head so I guess I'm slightly biased lol. As an actual match without all the atmosphere etc, it's a 3* match at best. But put it in context and it gets bumped up, for me anyways.

Maybe The Rock struggled during the match because Cena's top rope legdrop tore his hamstring? But yeah, they could've still trimmed ten mins off the match.

Looked like he was struggling a bit before that tbh. I don't know and it doesn't matter now. Maybe Cena will shoot on the DVD and tell us that he had to carry Rock's winded ass or something lol.

I think it was still good and at ***1/4 for a normal match at the very least. The atmosphere and "big time" feel no doubt upped it by one-star for me, though. I was highly into it and so was the crowd and they did a good job for a match where one guy has ring-rust.

The day after Mania I had Rock/Cena at four stars, the match was probably *** territory but the atmosphere and feeling of the match combined with the crowd plus the fact that the ending made me mark out bigger than I have done for years pushed it up to **** for me. No Doubt HHH/Taker was MOTN and it is probably on balance my MOTY so far, the story telling in that match was just immense and the whole match felt to me like it finished the story arc which began at Mania 25, love the match and it gets the full ***** from me.

Punk and Jericho was a weird match for me, I liked the beginning a lot with Jericho trying to get Punk to snap and the ending sequence I remember was great but the middle seemed to drag for me and I can't remember too much about it, will have to give it a rewatch to give a proper assessment of it

Taker/Triple H was really great. Just an all out war, two guys throwing haymakers and beating the crap out of each other inside the Cell. MOTN for sure. ****1/2

Jericho/Punk was wonderful and had a real old school feel to it. Crowd was a little quiet at the start, probably due to being nackered after HIAC. But as the match progressed the crowd became louder and louder. It told a great story and built to a really good finish. ****1/4

Rock/Cena was spectacle, as it should be. Definitely too long, there's a middle bit that really drags. Take off 10 minutes and it'd be far better, and perhaps Rock would be less nackered. Still, for his first singles match in 9 years he was fantastic. The end is probably in my top 3 match endings EVER. I thought for sure they were going to have Cena go over, but I suppose it was just not meant to be. Not many pops bigger than when Rock got the win. Stadium looked like it exploded! ***3/4

Now they're going to ruin it all by having Rock/Cena II with Cena getting his win. Awful, just awful.

On a completely unrelated note...

Judgement Day 2006

MNM/Londrick - *** 1/2
Benoit/Finlay - **** 3/4 - I may be overrating this but fuck! What a match! WWE MOTY, for sure!
Jillian/Melina - DUD
Helms/Crazy - ** 1/2
Henry/Angle - *** 1/4
Booker/Lashley - * 1/2
Khali/Taker - *** - Better than I thought
Rey/JBL - ***

A very average show with a sprinkle of AWESOME in Finlay/Benoit. The tag title match is very fun, Henry vs. Angle is decent for what it is, as is Taker and Khali. I thought JBL/Mysterio could have been a little bit better but whatever, it's definitely not bad. Booker vs. Lashley was very boring, IMO and the worst match on the card other than Jillian/Melina. Helms/Crazy is as you would expect from the two, nothing groundbreaking but nothing bad.

Required Viewing:
MNM vs. Londrick
Finlay vs. Benoit

Recomended Viewing:
Henry vs. Angle
Taker vs. Khali
Rey vs. JBL

Recomended to avoid
Jillian vs. Melina
Booker vs. Lashley
