Re: WrestleMania 29 was a solid PPV
I'm usually a lot more open minded than a lot of people on here, but going into WM29 i honnestly felt very little excitment.
Seeing Rock vs Cena rematch didn't have much appeal, bc it was FOR the title, with Rock champion. NO WAY Rock would have won and kept the title, which made it too predictable. What they should have done is:
- Make it NOT for the title, so at least there's a possibility of Cena losing
- or much, much more: Add CM Punk, to make it a triple threat, Punk vs Rock vs Cena. Considering the history of the 3 the previous 12 months, it's definately something that would have sold.
Lesnar vs HHH....are you fucking kidding me? They had just fought last year! You bring Lesnar back, who no one really expected to see back in WWE, and you waste his WM appearance on a rematch? If he has to do rematches, do it outside of mania. His mania feuds should be fresh. Brock should have faced Taker.
Taker vs Punk was a good match, but for some reason i wasn't personally nearly as invested in it as most ppl seem to be. I also didnt like the feud going into it, and i HATED the "qualifying match" Punk had to win to get to face taker. it took away from the mystique.
I honnestly dont remember much of the undercard. I know for a fact none of the undercard had me super excited though - match quality may have been ok, but going into the event i wasn't really excited by any of it. In comparison, this year, some of the undercard matches that people have suggested include Rey vs Sin Cara, Shield vs Wyatts, Cody vs Goldust, or Cody/Goldust in Tag Team turmoil/elimination against other tags for titles...if any of these matches are on the undercard this year, they would have me seriously pumped.
So, to sum up. I do think the build to WM29 was horrendous, and the event was also quite bland.
