Re: Is WrestleMania possibly the most underwhelming PPV of the year
But most of the matches haven't been that good... HHH/Taker was good, but it isn't the classic people make it out to be. Rock/Cena was average. Jericho/Punk was good, but again, not a WM classic as we know them.
In fact, in the past few years, HBK/Taker is the only classic I can even think of. We used to have matches yearly like Savage/Steamboat or Hogan/Savage or Hogan/Warrior or some of the classic tag matches we've seen. But then, much of that has to do not only with the match itself, but the build. Those matches were all special not because they happened at WM, but because they blew off a huge feud AT Wrestlemania. Outside of HBK/Taker, we haven't had that big match WM blowoff. It's jsut "meh, another PPV".
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
