Why Wrestlemania 27 Was Garb
Before I get into anything, saying that Wrestlemania 27 is the worst ever is not accurate, as different strokes for different folks. I alone can not speak of any Wrestlemania before 15. As I have not seen any of them previous to that. From 15 on, 27 is definitely a contender for the worst out of that group. In my opinion, it is the worst out of that group.
Let's get started.
World Heavyweight Championship Match
Looking over the Wrestlemania card, it makes sense on why this match opened the show. all though at the time, we would have never guessed that this match was going to open the show. At the time, it was a nice surprise and we were all delighted and it got everyone pumped up for Wrestlemania. I'm going to assume they opened the show with this to ease the blow of the next couple shitty matches.
As soon as the match was over, people were still getting settled into being at fucking Wrestlemania and with the WHC "supposedly" being one of the top two titles, I know that if I was looking forward to the match, I would feel like there wasn't really anything left to look forward to on the show.
The backstage segments were pushed so hard it made it blaintly obvious the WWE wanted to show off the fact that they were able to grab Snoop Dogg for the event. This is upseting because a match like Bryan/Sheamus was bumped off of the main show all together, I am assuming to make room for the backstage segments at Wrestlemania.
Jerry Lawler/Michael Cole
Michael Cole did a hell of a job as portraying a heel character, as weeks leading up to Wrestlemania there were many times I muted my television. I genuinely hatd him.With Cole capitalizing on a transcendent heel persona, history and logic dictates that all those heelish actions would be paid off with a comprehensive beat down at the hands of Jerry Lawler at WrestleMania 22.
As opposed to booking an actual squash of a match which would show Jerry Lawler completely destroy Michael Cole, as most expected, WWE allowed Michael Cole to get a fair amount of offense into their Mania match.
All of the factors, such as Cole being a non-athlete in real life, the crowd chanting "boring" at argueably one of the most built up storylines on the card.
This program was a complete and utter waste of Stone Cold Steve Austin and JR returning for commentary.
I don't even want to get into the fuckery of the finish.
Corre Vs. Big Show, Kofi Kingston, Kane, and Santino Marella
Grab some popcorn and beverage before CM Punk/Orton. The fact that this match was on the card is just the face palm of all face palms.
The Punk-Orton feud has received a long time build and was one of the more stabilized matches on the card. This match that was filled with positioning, was killed by the amount of submission holds and lack-luster star power (at the time)
I had high hopes for Punk/Orton given the talent of both performers. However, like WrestleMania 27, this match fell below expectations.
Like many matches, the actual match never lives up to the hype. But this match took it one step further. This match didn't even live up to the promotional video shown before it.
As big of a Miz fan as I am. I would expect him to hold the title maybe in the fall. Maybe during B PPV's in between Wrestlemania and Summerslam. Never would I myself put The Miz in the main event of Wrestlemania. To each their own.
The Miz and John Cena put on a C- match that was clunnky and unorganized with no real emotion that usually arises during a Wrestlemania main event.
The Rock opening and closing the show really does not need any sort of explanation. A part timer comes in and they act like he is the God of all God and was the complete center of the build to the show, made the DVD cover, headlined the next nights Raw. He decided the finish of the match, they even gave him a special introduction that was played before the main video package to start the show.
Vince, stop riding Dwaynes Cock, please.
Anybody have any other thoughts on why Wrestlemania 27?
