So I'm sitting around waiting for Wrestlemania XXVIII to start so I decided I'd kill some time by watch a past Wrestlemania and since I've never seen Wrestlemania 24 I decided to give it a watch.
Finlay vs JBL ***3/4
Money In The Bank Ladder Match ****
Batista vs Umaga ***
Shawn Michaels vs Ric Flair ***1/2
Beth Phoenix/Melina vs Maria/Ashley **
Randy Orton vs Triple H vs John Cena ***3/4
Flyod Mayweather vs The Big Show **1/2
The Undertaker vs Edge ****1/4
Overall, this was a great Wrestlemania. The first half was really good, very entertaining. I think this MITB is my favourite of them all. Lots of great spots. Batista vs Umaga is actually pretty watchable and Finlay/JBL was beast. The placement of HBK vs Flair on the card kind of bugged me because it was such an emotional moment that by the time we got to the Divas match it felt as if all the energy was drained out of the arena. Then again, by putting it on earlier it meant that it wasn't going to take away much from the world title matches so yeah, it wasn't a bad decision after all. The second half kind of faltered with the Divas match (which felt a bit sloppy at times) and Mayweather vs Big Show but the triple threat was fun and the main event was well paced and full of excitement. There's this one moment, had you forgotten it was an Undertaker Wrestlemania match you thought for sure Edge was gonna win.
I've seen every Mania from 14-27 and this is no doubt one of my favourites.
