Why did everybody hate WrestleMania 29 so much?

I have seen some worse wrestlemanias(15, 27). But this one got a lot of hate. I personally thought at the time that the ppv was okay. It could have been way better. It fell below expectations. I felt that Kaitlyn vs aj should have taken place and I felt sorry for the tons of funk vs Rhodes scholar/Bella's match being cut. I knew the main event winner from a mile away. Other than that there were some decent matches, but everybody hated it so badly. Why did this wrestlemania get shit on so badly?

Re: Why did everybody hate wrestlemania 29 so much?

Cena vs Rock and HHH vs Lesnar had already taken place at big ppvs less than a year ago. It was repetitive and everybody knew the outcomes.

They could have had Rock vs Lesnar, Taker vs Cena and Punk vs HHH. Everybody was expecting this. In fact those were the initial rumors.

The ppv itself wasn't that bad compared to WM2000 or WM27, but It was a HUGE letdown.

That would have been much better. But I understood the reason behind rock-cena 2

Re: Why did everybody hate wrestlemania 29 so much?

Because nothing happened.

Think about it, how did that show alter the course of the WWE?

If I were going to print headlines for some of the previous Wrestlemanias, I would write:

- THE SLAM HEARD AROUND THE WORLD! HOGAN TRIUMPHS! (III)
- FOUR WINS LEADS TO A SAVAGE VICTORY! (IV)
- HOGAN HAS BEEN DETHRONED! THE WARRIOR REIGNS! (VI)
- THE TITLE CHANGES HANDS TWICE!!! (IX)
- REDEMPTION FOR THE HITMAN! (X)
- HBK IS THE IRON MAN AT WRESTLEMNIA! (XII)
- THE AUSTIN ERA HAS BEGUN! (XIV)

And so on and so forth. You get the picture.

Now...what exactly happened at Wrestlemania 29?

- Cena became an eleventy billion time champion after winning a rematch nobody wanted to see.
- HHH got his win back over Brock...for some reason.
- The Streak is still intact after not really being in any real danger of ending to begin with. We all knew Punk was going to lose, right?
- Del Rio retains the title against an opponent that wasn't really a great threat.
- Ziggler's cash in was saved for the next night, so Mania didn't have that.

And looking onto the undercard, there was almost nothing.

- Fandango, in his in ring debut, defeated the guy that loses at least 80% of the time anyway. (Sorry Chris, but its true).
- Team Hell No stayed the tag champs.
- The Shield stayed unbeaten, this time against probably the least spectacular three man team they had faced up to that point. Granted, they SHOULD go over in that situation, but I am just highlighting that once the show was done, there wasn't really all that much to talk about.
- Ryback lost...I guess that was surprising because they seemed high on him at the time.
- The IC Title changed hands...on the preshow, so nobody cared.

Compare that to Wrestlemania XXX:

- The execution of The Streak ending was horrible, but at least it gave us something to remember, talk about, and analyze the next day.
- Daniel Bryan won two matches to win the championship after having every obstacle thrown in his way. The culmination that everyone wanted!

And even on the undercard:
- Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, & The Rock all stood in the ring at the same time to kick off the show.
- Cesaro won the first ever Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Basically my whole point is that Wrestlemania 29 was just a show to maintain the status quo and because of that, it underwhelmed people.

Re: Why did everybody hate wrestlemania 29 so much?

Well, pretty sure the universal dissapointment came because the card was the most predictable one in WM history and because, really, there were no changes to the landscape of the WWE, and it just didn't feel like WM with that. Didn't help the main event was a shitfest either.

That being said, the actual card itself is really underrated tbh. Whoever thinks this is "one of the worst WM's ever easily" can have an argument for his statement but I don't think has a clue of just how bad shows like WM's 2, 4, 9, 11 or 15 for example were in comparison either.



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

MARKING FOR:
Daniel Bryan | Bad News Barrett | The Wyatt Family | Dean Ambrose | Damien Sandow | Sami Zayn | Austin Aries | Kota Ibushi | Kenny Omega | William Regal | Renee Young | YOSHIHIKO - The greatest dummy wrestler of all the times | Anything DDT tbh, especially the Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship matches

Re: Why did everybody hate wrestlemania 29 so much?

I agree that it wasn't all that bad, I enjoyed it for what it was. Yes we knew the outcomes at least for the final 4 matches anyway but it's far from the worst one we've had.

Cena vs Miz was a big Wtfmania to me.

Re: Why did everybody hate wrestlemania 29 so much?

Because it sucked.

Cena/Rock and Brock/HHH, for what they were billed as, were terrible matches and felt as if the two participants had no chemistry between them whatsoever. Besides that, no wanted wanted to see Cena regain the title for the umpteenth time, and Triple H's win over Brock was completely unnecessary and shouldn't have happened, especially considering how Brock was then chosen to END THE STREAK the following year.

Punk/Taker, in all fairness, was a good match but no one really believed Punk was going to win. Besides that, Punk could've held the WWE Championship and put it up against The Streak, but instead his 434-day title reign went to Rock, only to be dropped back to Cena.

Del Rio/Swagger was thrown together about a month prior and felt more worthy of a SmackDown main event than a WrestleMania title match. Besides that neither man really needed the world title, in my opinion. (See below)

Fandango/Jericho was ridiculous and to this day Fandango going over is still one of the most ridiculous booking decisions I've ever seen. "Oh but Fandango was over and people were chanting his entrance theme the night after." Where is he now? Jericho, the veteran, should have gone over one MILLION percent, although the match shouldn't have happened in the first place. IMO, Ziggler should've cashed in on Del Rio BEFORE WrestleMania, which could've led to Ziggler/Jericho for the belt in a SummerSlam rematch. At least that match would've had some background to it; the Fandango/Jericho affair was purely for Vince McMahon's personal, petty entertainment.

Team Hell No vs. Ziggler & Langston was another SmackDown worthy match, as opposed to a WrestleMania.

Ryback NEEDED to go over Mark Henry, and instead got beat in less than ten minutes. WWE had a hot babyface on their hands and instead, for some reason, didn't put him over.

The Shield going over Show/Orton/Sheamus was actually a good decision, but wasn't enough to save the show.

Because it was extremely predictable. You could have missed the show entirely and would've been just fine.
