WrestleMania XXVIII

Bryan/Sheamus: ****
Kane/Orton: Chokeslam!
Rhodes/Show: *
Divas: ***3/4
Trips/Taker: *****
Team Teddy/Team Johnny: *
Punk/Jericho: ****
Rock/Cena: Once in a damn lifetime

The opener was amazing. It almost lasted 20 seconds. Incredible.

Kane and Orton played with restholds. I could totally see that. You know I come up against masked psychos claiming to be the devil's favourite demon or something and my best strategy is to put a sleeper hold on them. Works every time.

Rhodes vs. Show was a true David vs. Goliath match. Goliath won as he always should.

The Divas Match was brilliant. Maria sold the ribs like she was actually injured or something. Match had a lot to do with butts. Not sure how I feel about it atm. Beth Phoenix stole Loki's helmet but it didn't work. EVE TORRES = GOAT.

Triple and Taker was so unbelievable that I couldn't even believe any of it. Unbelievable. But it really didn't need to be in a Cell. That was just unnecessary. But maybe they wanted Metallica to get their moment out there. And it really didn't need Shawn Michaels. I mean, he's retired and shouldn't have refereed. He didn't do anything the whole match. That was just unnecessary. In fact, we could've easily dispensed with Triple H too, since it was all about the Undertaker. In fact, I gave the match five stars when Undertaker pulled down his hood. Also, why was there so much hugging and spitting?

MORE EVE. GOAT. Did Teddy lose his job? Owell.

CM Punk and Jericho went out there in that ring at wrestlemania in Miami and had a technical wrestling masterpiece of a wrestling match.. that was technical. I mean yeah it could've been better but HOW? I mean yeah the crowd could've been hotter but HOW? Massive match.

Massive.

Rock defeated Cena. OMG OMG OMG. Not sure what to do now.

Cell was necessary only to 'Cell' the match. Either that or someone had to put their career on the line

Otherwise, it was a dramatic masterpiece. Only match I saw that night, and man, it reminded me what makes wrestling so special.

Bryan/Sheamus: N/A
Can't really rate a match like this when it's a complete squash. If rumors are true and they did want this to be the shortest championship match ever, they still failed. I can't stand either of these guys but it wouldn't hurt if they got a solid 12-15 minutes in. You could've easily erased the Funkasaurus segment which was pointless as well as the MGK and Flo-Rida concerts and made up time for this match.

Kane/Orton: ***
Better than I expected, a bit hard to get into because of the weak build up and the crowd was still shocked from what happened earlier and chanted Daniel Bryan early on. There's some nice back and forth, a couple of interesting counters like Orton reversing Kane's sidewalk slam into his inverted headlock backbreaker and the pace is decent for the most part although it does get a bit dull midway with the sleeper holds. A good bit of Kane's moves, like always, had no logical reasoning behind them so it's a bit lacking from a psychology or storytelling standpoint. I liked the chokeslam off the second rope though.

Rhodes/Show: **1/4
Didn't mind and it's actually good that it was relatively short. Rhodes working on Show's leg was logical and served purpose as it was meant to take away the size advantage. A bit anti climatic finish but worked nonetheless.

Maria/Kelly vs Beth/Eve: *
Filler match with a predictable outcome. I can’t say the match was any special either outside a couple of Kelly Kelly moves that caught me off guard.

Trips/Taker: ****1/2
Unreal match and undoubtedly the match of the night. Storytelling was great and I have to give HBK some props because I wasn’t really digging him as a ref. His actions and facial expressions really sold the match well. The match itself is an emotional rollercoaster that has everything you can really ask for. At least all I could ask for; I can see a small portion of the wrestling purists not liking this match. Plenty of drama with near falls, false finishes, high spots, bumps taken and everything that happened in terms of the sequence was extremely logical and made sense. Loved both Taker and HHH using an excessive amount of charishots as it both signified that they were were getting frustrated as well as going for the absolute end. Two things bring the match down though. As great as it was, it dragged towards the end. Second, they didn’t really use the cell much so it was a bit pointless and unnecessary. I guess they just added it to draw the fans in.

Team Teddy/Team Johnny: **
Filler match that was probably worse than it should be because the crowd was silent for the most part. Eve serving as a distraction was pretty predictable.

Punk/Jericho: ****
The crowd brought this down for me. It was dull for the most part and only got hot towards the end. Match is pretty good though especially in terms of storytelling. Y2J playing up to the DQ/title stipulation added earlier was great and Punk sold Jericho’s taunting with his expressions. I thought the suplex off the apron onto the floor was a nice spot and set the tone for Y2J working on Punk’s back with several high impact moves, kicks and submissions which was logical. There’s a lot of back and forth in there, several counters and a couple of false finishes although the crowd does take away from them since they didn’t really react much.

Rock/Cena: ****
Good match that the crowd really adds to. They were trying to re-create the Hogan/Rock moment in there but the building wasn’t as electric. It’s a solid match for the most part although I didn’t like the prolonged submission holds because they really made the match seem like it was dragging. The pacing is my major issue. This match should’ve been an all out, fast paced brawl that would cater to both of their styles but I’m guessing Rock’s endurance came into play since he really looked gassed towards the end. Selling from both guys is good for the most part. I wish Cena locked in the STFU properly though since it didn't seem like it was having much of an effect, same with The Rock's sharpshooter. Very unpredictable finish with Rock winning though. Glad he did and he gave a great performance wrestling his first singles match in 9 years. Also, I must say that while the crowd made this match, the Taker/HHH match made the crowd.

Good show overall albeit a couple of filler segments such as the Brodus Clay/Heath Slater ones could’ve just been removed and the time could’ve been given to Sheamus/Bryan. No need to devalue Bryan or the WHC especially at the biggest show of the year.

Haven't watched, but it sounds like Teddy v Johnny was prett much morphed into getting Eve over instead of anything else.

WHC Title match is a decent idea, what with Bryan having his cockiness and laughing at the Big Show's sub-minute reign, but goddamn, the World Title chnage at WrestleMania being an 18 second opener? C'mon. And with news of them wanting to make it shoerter than Kane v Chavo they'll probably lie about the match time like with King Kong Bundy v whoever those midgets were.

The Rock should have won if they plan to continue this thing (which I'll be shocked if they don't). Cena wins -- he's proved his point and has nothing else to gain. Rock's been gone for eight years and doesn't just "move onto something else" like John could.


Also.......I really want the Rock be the one to turn here.

-----

Contemplating catching the replay, and since I get a free PPV every month I'd definitely do so if it didn't run 4 hours. There's only so many smoke and toilet breaks I could take. I'd be surprised if I actually loved anything on the show, too.

Who wants to give Shawn a SAG award?! He can win awards for his reality show.

If anyone deserves an Acting award, it should go to Cena, who made the Rock look decent for half the match, & then let the Rock also get the victory.... And not even admit tonight that John was the better man & wrestler.
