Wrestlemania 28 STRZ RTINGZ!!!
Daniel Bryan Vs Sheamus
Randy Orton vs Kane ***
A good Kane match? this really is Wrestlemania. Simple yet solid back and forth match, the ending spot was cool yet very surprising with Kane going over Orton clean at WM.
Big Show V Rhodes **
Rhodes bumping his ass off deserves to be recognized, as well with him getting speared in the balls by Big Show. This was fine with Show getting a deserved smypathy win at WM.
Divas match, lol.
Undertaker V HHH ****3/4
As close to perfection in terms of storytelling as you can get. Taker looked great, Triple H looked like a fucking murderer in this match, and Shawn derserves a Oscar for his performence acting wise. Everything from the entrances, the crowd, the Hell In A Cell being lowered to "The Memory Remains", the Sweet Chin Music Pedigree combination false finish, Triple H mouthing fuck you while doing the DX chop, to the beautifull moment of three legends walking out together accompnied with JR's line "that.... is respect". This is why I am a wrestling fan.
Team Teddy V Team Johnny **3/4
Fun match, ending sequence with the finisher/spot fest was exciting, and Miz getting the win was the best decision.
Punk V Jericho ****
Jericho's heel performence, my god, GREATNESS!. They both balanced nicely the personal animosity of the feud as well as the simplistic "Who is The Best In The World?" motif. Some fantastic spots in this and the last five minuits were hella exciting. Crowd could of made it better but hey, what you gonna do? they did pop for the big spots (Hurricana countered into the Walls sticks out) and were really into it near the end.
Rock V Cena ****
For Rock to not have wreslted a proper match in 8 years and to go out there and work a thity minuite match busting out crossbodys adds to he amount of respect I have for him. Both guys busted their ass's and were clearly drained near the end, the false finish with the AA near the end had me thinking "FUCKING SUPER CENA SHIT!!!" and The Rock to kick out was a mark out moment. Rock winning was the way to go other wise cena would have won, been booed by 70'000 people and most people would come away feeling dissapionted so yeah Rock winning was fine.
Overall Great Show, you know a Wrestlemania is half good when only about 40% of the forum is saying its the worst ever, usually its a good 60%.
