He's gonna be pretty busy with movie promotion stuff, so I'm not sure how they'd have time to build up an angle with him.

Happy Cena won, albeit in a **** match, and Punk/Taker was teh titz. Other than that, pretty awful, and they ended early.

Wasn't that bad. Y'all need to sit back and just enjoy the spectacle sometimes.

It's sad when the biggest surprise on the biggest show of the year was Mark Henry winning.

everyone expected Cena to win, but that match was terrible!! way too many finishers for one match and with the many finishers it makes the match even worst when there is nothing special the way Cena won

I enjoyed the show as a whole, just some of the results didn't make sense. I enjoyed watching it, but I haven't watched in awhile and it was just fun to sit down and watch again.

True, but he's old and has to think about the future of the business. Going out at Wrestlemania with Shawn Michaels by his side made sense to me.

and thanks for the tip of that stream. Was a little rough at first but the quality was much better than anything I've streamed in the past year. There was a bit of a lag, like where the match wasn't even in the finisher and everybody else had already posted the winner.

But I'll take stream quality over being first 9 times out of 10, especially since it's free.

Exactly, and when/if HHH ever retires you know he will only settle for WM so we have to deal with another terrible HHH match taking up precious minutes that could be used to boost a young star.

If you take away Punk/Taker. Not a great show. Granted, I missed the first hour of it but the last two matches were bad for Wrestlemania standards. I am a big Lesnar fan but his last two matches with HHH have been bad.

Well, that ME was a whole bunch of BS. The match itself was paced so poorly, from that slow **** to all these finisher attempts in the final minutes, it got to the point of being ridiculous.

Punk-Taker was the MOTN for sure. The rest? Nothing to write home about. WWE did absolutely nothing to make me want to watch tomorrow night.

I already knew it was going to be a bad show with two of the matches(Undertaker-Punk/Cena-Rock) having very predictable endings.

But at least Undertaker-Punk was a good match.

Keeping the tag belts on Kane-Danielson, continuing to push Miz, Jobbing Goldberg again(despite my love for Henry) and to top it all off Triple H pushed this to a thumbs way down.

Fandango won but it was booked as a fluke and he really did nothing to impress. The only Brightside other than Undertaker-Punk was the Shield.

HHH has to rely on the other wrestler for him to have a good match.

Overrated sack of crap.

Wasn't that bad, but wasn't exactly great either. Which is part of the problem. When you think WrestleMania, you expect it to be great since this is the company's showcase event.

Taker/Punk was great and probably won't be matched this year. HHH/Lesnar had moments and it was good, but it wasn't great. The quality of the Rock/Cena match was something I'd expect to see on Raw. It was predictable and there was nothing special about it.

I said this about a month ago. Three of the six wrestler in the big three matches won't be around after, Rock, Taker and HHH. Brock will be around once in a while and Punk is taking a few months off. Cena is the only one that is left. They have to start building up talent.

I liked parts of the HHH match, but they overdid how many times he kicked out and how much abuse he took. Got way too unbelievable at a certain point.

HHH had no business winning, but you already knew that. No one will believe Lesnar can beat the streak or The Rock at next year's Mania if he can't beat a guy who's supposed to be a suit now.

Exactly...they had the opportunity with Ziggler and his win over Cena at TLC, but then they followed it up with not one, but TWO weeks in a row of absolute "SuperCena" garbage.

He's not been the same since then

This event was too predictable, and lacked sizzle, so I didn't bother watching WM for the first time in years.

Let me guess: Ryback, Taker, HHH and Cena all won?
