YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS ! More :hhh talk!
vs Orton I : ** 3/4
vs Umaga : ** 1/2
vs Orton II : **** 1/4
The first Orton match is an awesome paced bout, but due to the fact that they would be wrestling later in the night, I think both Trips and Orton decided not to leave it all out there. One of the BETTER Trips-Orton bouts out there and again, a really nice fast pace. Trips catching Orton instead of decisively beating him made the segment that much better as it kicked off the theme of survival.
The Umaga match is GREAT, but it's extremely short at about 6 minutes. Umaga DESTROYS Triple H's ribs and just works it over until Hunter hits one of the most beautifully executed Pedigree's I have ever seen for the win. My favourite ** 1/2 match ever by far
The Last Man Standing match is INCREDIBLE. These two just went out there and tore the house down for 20 minutes straight. It was one of those LMS's with a ton of 10 counts, and both men play their roles very well, with Trips being the valiant babyface who is giving his last breath to survive the night, and Orton being the gutsy heel trying to survive Trips's last array of offense. 4th best LMS from where I stand for sure, and one of the best matches in Orton's career. The best singles match that Orton-Trips have had BY FAR (Next best is RR 05 which I have at *** 1/2
(on a side note) Who in their right fucking mind came up with the idea to have Trips-Orton main event Wrestlemania in a standard wrestling match with no stipulation ? THIS was their match history before the WM XXV encounter :
UNF 04 : ** 1/2
RR 05 : *** 1/2
NM 07 : ** 3/4
NM 07 (LMS): **** 1/4
JD 08 (Cage): ***
ONS 08(LMS): ** 1/2
Should have been Cena-Orton and Edge-HHH ..... But NOOOOOOOOOOO, we get a terrible Wrestlemania main event between two people who have historically sub-par main event chemistry with one another over the prior 5 years.
