only match that I didnt really like was HHH vs goldberg just because their feud was generally boring as shit.

Eddie was gone and it was sad, but that doesnt mean people wanted to see mysterio essentially take over the role. It was too much.

the constant call backs and immitations of eddie started crossing into the area of bad taste. You could tell that even by WM 22 people were getting sick of it and were actively booing mysterio.......then wwe proceeds to keep going with this and have mysterio feud with chavo over the whole affair.

realistically if wwe wanted to pay tribute to eddie in such a central way, they shouldve had chavo do what rey did, it certainly wouldve made much more sense being that hes real family but as per normal, rey was the more popular guy and wwe used it to their advantage to possibly create a new main event star. By mania 22, it felt incredibly cheap and had overstayed its welcome.

In hindsight, it wouldve been better to have just had angle wrestle undertaker at mania and give taker the title, both guys wouldve had much better matches (takers was awful). Their no way out match wouldve only been made better at mania with the streak thrown into the mix.

failing that drop the title to mysterio at no way out, put angle and taker in a streak match and let mysterio wrestle orton.
If Batista hadn't gotten injured a few months before WM we'd have gotten Batista vs. Orton at WM 22, I think. I remember reading that somewhere.

WM 21's main events weren't that memorable, indeed. Cena vs. JBL in particular was lousy.

I much prefer the I Quit match at Judgement Day and the HIAC at Vengeance. Btw, it seems like most people forget the HHH/Batista Backlash rematch. It was the weakest one of the trilogy, imo.

Me too, was at Judgement Day In ‘05, fun show to be at! The HIAC was def the best for the HHH/Batista feud that year.

Wrestlemania 31

HHH going over Sting was the biggest crock of shit I've seen in wrestling. I took a long break from watching WWE after that.

probably wouldve been better for it. Angle vs mysterio in a singles match at mania for the title couldve been a belter if it was given enough time.

2006 angle was incredible.

Re: PPVs that you feel like you're the only one who thought they were bad

First of all, I hate the whole "am I the only one?" thing. It's used in so many different ways, and out of billions of people, no, you're not going to be the only one that feels that way. In this instance, pertaining to wrestling fans, when there's millions of us, no, you're not going to be the special one with a totally unique and ground-breaking opinion.

That said, some big events that I feel were really bad:

First, Wrestlemania 25. Again, I don't think I'm alone at all in disliking this show. But Taker vs. HBK saved that show in more ways than one, both at the time and in terms of how it's historically viewed. Taker vs. HBK was an all-time great match, maybe the greatest ever. Take it away and you're left with a steaming pile of shit. A 30 minute Kid Rock performance. Santina. Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka wrestling 20-30 years past their prime. Mysterio vs. JBL being a non-match. Super Cena at his finest. And the most lifeless WM main event in HHH vs. Orton. The feud was so heated, to have a Point A to Point B wrestling match was an awful call.

Also, Wrestlemania 30. This one's a little different because the majority rate it so highly. Seen/read a lot of people that put it in the top 5 or even top 3 Manias ever. Let's start with the positives. Everything Daniel Bryan on this show, awesome. Starting the show with Austin, Rock, Hogan... really cool. The rest... again, torrential stream of shit. Cena killing Wyatt dead in the water. Streak ending, great moment, awful match. I legit nearly fell asleep until "The Streak... is over." The Shield, maybe the hottest act in the company besides Daniel Bryan, squashing the fucking New Age Outlaws. The women's division put in a clusterfuck Vickie Guerrero Invitational a month after we see Paige and Emma tear it up at NXT Arrival. 2 great matches, a big moment and a nostalgia opening segment does not make an all time great Wrestlemania.
