Re: Why did everybody hate WrestleMania 29 so much?
WrestleMania 29 was uneventful at worst, not terrible at best.
I agree that it unfairly gets a lot of hate, although I'd still put WrestleMania 15 way ahead of it.
Cena/Rock II was an inevitability, because Daniel Bryan wasn't beating The Rock at SummerSlam 2013 and WWE had its fill of CM Punk with the belt. Who else is The Rock going to drop it to? HHH again? No thanks. It wasn't just about giving Cena his win back, it was about putting over the current WWE generation.
Unfortunately, they went about it all wrong and The Rock and Cena didn't need to hug it out at the end. Cena had to win, though.
Everything else was pretty tame. Ziggler really should have cashed in MITB that night. Fandango was inexplicably given too much importance. Punk/Taker was great and deserves all the praise it gets as the only great match on the show. Lesnar/HHH made me want to puke except HHH's botched entrance.
Yeah, not a great one, probably not even a good one. I still wouldn't put it down there with WrestleMania 27 and WrestleMania 11, though. Literally nothing happened on those shows worth talking about. At least today we can talk about how much Cena and Rock hugging it out was weird and how good Punk/Taker was.
