Seeing the top Wrestlemania main event list I thought I'd go back and finish
WRESTLEMANIA 2000 (XVI)

The Godfather and D'Lo Brown vs Big Bossman and Bull Buchanan *1/4
Nice little opener with nothing really standing out. Felt more like a Raw match.
15 man hardcore battle royale for the Hardcore Championship *1/2
Most of the match was generally just shots to the head with everything and the kitchen sink. It picked up towards the end but other than that, that's it.
T&A vs Head Cheese *
See first match
Triangle Ladder Match for the Tag Team Championship
Dudley Boyz(c) vs Hardy Boyz vs Edge and Christian ****

Definitely the MOTN. Being overshadowed by TLC II I think this match is overlooked. It's filled with great spots and moments and correct me if I'm wrong, it inspired the TLC match. Nothing short of what you would expect from these teams and the finish was well put together.
Terri Runnels vs The Kat DUD
Why was this here?
The Radicalz vs Too Cool & Chyna **
Fun match, mostly a crowd worker. Both sides actually did well with each other. The ending with Eddie and Chyna was pretty funny.
Triple threat match for the Intercontinental and European Champion:
Kurt Angle(c) vs Chris Jericho vs Chris Benoit ***

I watched this match again so I could give it a proper rating but I still stand by three stars. It was a good match no doubt.Best technical match on the card, might have fared better if it was a one on one match. Great showing by Jericho and Benoit, Angle I don't think was at his best that time. I'm not saying he weighed down the match but I would have preferred to see him one on one with either Benoit or Jericho.
Rikishi & Kane vs Road Dogg and X-Pac *1/2
As fun as this match was. It was just setting up for Kane's third beat down of Pete Rose (and a stinkface). The whole aftermath was a fun cool down for the main event.
Fatal four way for the WWF Championship:
Triple H (c) vs Big Show vs The Rock vs Mick Foley ***

O.k here we go. First off you take away Big Show and it would basically be the same match. I thought Foley did really well here (though I wouldn't send him off like that). I think the original plan was to have HHH/Rock and they threw in the other two at the last second. After Foley got eliminated it really felt like a Triple H match, very slow and methodical. It was still keeping my attention. The whole side brawl between Vince and Shane didn't give a pause to the action. The finish I've seen plenty of times and the Rock, Rock Bottoming everyone to send the crowd home happy was o.k.
Overall ** out of *****
This whole ppv felt like a really good B ppv and not like Wrestlemania. That being said it was fun and entertaining but the matches themselves apart from a few could be put on another ppv. Calling it one of the worst Wrestlemanias may seem rash, but comparatively it is. Mostly to the other AE Wrestlemanias (14,15, and 17)

Has there ever been a match that you have watched that you simply can't enjoy due to outside circumstances such as a surrounding storyline, personal reasons, etc ? For me it would have to be the Guerrero-Mysterio ladder match from Summerslam 2005. What an utterly retarded concept for a match, I mean the Great American Bash match is one of the most underrated matches I've ever seen (Alot of people put the Wrestlemania match over it, what the fuck) , and in this we get the same sleazy Eddie... But in the Great American Bash match we didn't get interference from a bunch of non wrestlers! It's just...I refuse to watch that match because even the concept of a "ladder match for the custody of Dominick" drives me insane. Michael Cole and Tazz are fucking TERRIBLE on commentary for the match as well.

Which reminds me, that particular duo actually do a great job of calling the 6/23 match between Eddie and Rey as it's more subtle and less OVER THE TOP OMG EDDIE IZ EVEEEEELLLLLLLL SYMPATHIZE WIT WEYYYYYY. Commentary doesn't make me change a rating (except RR 92 ) but DAMN.

Just finished watching Benoit/Jericho vs Batista/HHH tag match on Raw 6/12/2004. A pretty good tag match while it lasts but wow, HHH is one stiff asshole in this one! He ends the match in DQ after hitting Benoit with a chair but he's so reckless! Benoit takes a BRUTAL chair shot to the back of the head and is knocked unconscious (and starts bleeding), then he hits the referee Jack Doan in the top of the head with force and although Batista gets the least of the pain, Jericho almost breaks his arm by protecting the chair shot he takes. Even though I believe Benoit is innocent, it's hard to watch that chair shot he takes (he took another to the back of his head in the Ironman match with Hunter).

And I'm a bit late on this one, but I can't believe anyone would rate HHH/Cena at WM22 only *1/2. I can understand not liking it, but one and a half asterisks is just too low! I need to give it another watch but last time, I had it at ****.

I really don't like Trips/Cena from WM when compared to NOC/Raw '09 but I still think it's solid.

Maybe its because it feels like a legit classic 'title match' not bogged down by interference and over-booking, and instead feels like a primetime wrestling contest for arguably the biggest prize in the game..I'm not sure.
I'm an enormous fan of Rey/Orton and think it's quite easily the best WWE WHC match and Randy Orton match and non-Eddie WWE Rey match but it doesn't touch Benoit/Finlay.

I have Michaels/Taker downloading. I'M GONNA DO IT. Tempted to watch Cena/HHH again now too.

I think your problem lies in the fact that the crowd were shitting on Cena and treating Trips like a GAWD tbh. Don't know why though. It came back to bite them at the end when he tapped which makes the whole thing that much better if you ask me.
Not really. It used to. I stated several times that I actually liked the crowd reaction more than I ever have upon watching last night. You like the match. I don't. That's seriously all that there is to be said.

I'm not really a fan of Cena/HHH from WrestleMania 22, but I might need to give it a re-watch as I haven't watched in a while. The match didn't stand out to me and it's not something I fondly remember when I think of WrestleMania 22, unlike the Edge/Foley and HBK/McMahon matches.
