. It was scripted to be good??? WELL I SHOULD FUCKING HOPE SO. I would not want them to script a bad match on purpose.
You clearly misunderstood what he meant.
He means the commentators were scripted to say "OMG this match is amazing" regardless of whether it was actually good or not.
It's just another form of WWE trying to brainwash the fans.
"Imagine the worst situation - we lose Fabregas and Nasri. You cannot convince people you are ambitious after that. You cannot pretend you are a big club. A big club holds onto its big players and gives a message out to all the other big clubs that they just cannot come in and take [players] away from you." - Arsene Wenger
EDITED: Lowering to 6/10 after re-watching and taking it all in. I still don't think it was a terrible Mania, just more status quo "business as usual."
WrestleMania 27 was terrible and WrestleMania 28 was good, but pretty so-so. I felt this year was a start to a return to form. If HHH didn't have to have his vanity match against Lesnar, I think it would be looked at more favorably.
I didn't mind Rock/Cena with all of the finishers hit, but I don't want to see that in every match, obviously. I feel like the main event of WrestleMania is the only time and place for that. But, really, Taker/Punk showed us all how it's done (although that had a lot of finishers hit, too).

1 point to the Undertaker/Punk, 0 points for everything else so that adds up to 1/10.

Now, go ahead. Tell me she died of cancer. Tell me she was in a car crash. Tell me she can only move her fucking eyelids. Yeah, why don't you tell me some sentimental bullshit that will make me 'ashamed' of what I just said.
You pricks are all the same, and if we met in real life I'd bury my boot up your ass. I get more sex than you, little man. So pogo on that you stupid cunt.
as a Mania- 6.5/10
including RAW (which i'll link to Mania years from now)- 8/10
- new belt defended/lost for the first time
- one of Taker's last Mania matches, and fairly different from his previous 4 vs. HBK/HHH
- Ziggler takes the belt finally
- craziest crowd in a long, long time (will be forever haunted by their Fandango Theme Chants lol)
- probably the peak of the Shield (both the build-up, Mania win, and post-Mania feud with BOD/Bryan)
i'd like to write an essay on combining WM29/RAW into one 'experience' and why that works this year/signals changes that have happened in the last few years in the business and, probably, where it's heading for the next while.
yeah, the Mania was below average. no, it wasn't the worst thing ever. just very aggressively average and unmemorable.
