I am expecting a Cena/Ryback feud. Just dumb

Nah, they go to some casual mark city like Des Moines or Birmingham or Tampa and suddenly he gets 70% cheers so Vince doesn't care.

Let me guess: Ryback, Taker, HHH and Cena all won?
Henry won. You got the other three.

Overall, a 6/10 night. Punk-Undertaker delivered in the little time they performed. Most of you...all of you hated the Lesnar/HHH bout, I found it quite decent. Triple H took some bumps I didn't think he could anymore. All those suplexes, especially that quick one through the table. Lesnars power is scary.

Cenas ending, horrible. No heel turn, shook his hand, Rock left with the spotlight IMO. Whatever, this was too expected to rant on.

I got my moneys worth. Thanks streams!

I was really disappointed although I'm not sure why I was expecting more. Cena should've bashed The Rock's face in with the belt after the match to turn heel.

The only great match of the night was Punk-Undertaker, which I was expecting to be really good. I was expecting the Lesnar-HHH match to be great too but that one felt kind of boring too. The rest of the night was too predictable. Not a single face/heel turn in all of Wrestlemania? Come on WWE...

In all honesty, the only other part of the night that actually got me really excited was Ryback shell shocking Mark Henry, and that was more just impressive because of the strength shown in it.

Overrated sack of crap.
Youtube "Jim Cornette HHH" and see his opinion on HHH.

The all faces have to go over booking at Mania now sucks. Remember WM17 when they went off the air with Austin and Vince heeling on a bloody Rock? Of course, it wasn't also a problem to have heel HHH go over at the end of the night at WM16 either....

+ Had fun with two friends watching the show.
+ Taker vs Punk was a very entertaining match.
+ The Shield won and will continue to progress.
+ Didn't have to watch Albert and Brodus Clay at WM.

- The main even was complete and uter garbage. THEY SHOOK HANDS GOD DAMN IT!
- HHH vs Lesnar wasn't very good and HHH won for no good reason at all. Where will they go with Lesnar next?
- Would have liked to see Big E and Ziggy win the TT titles.

Now, just watch the Shield attack Cena during his promo tomorrow night only to have The Rock save him and then, the two of them will bury the Shield at ER and we will be left with no good angles at all.

They're just making money off the Wrestlemania name now. Not like they have to actually try to create decent, unpredictable storylines or matches that aren't technical hot garbage.

The only intriguing thing to me was the possible Cena heel turn and they **** all over that with the finish of the Main Event. Vince shouldn't be surprised if he starts seeing his adult demographics taking a nosedive after the eventual repeat performances of this garbage.

I've seen it before and Jim is spot on.

I hate HHH the most out of any wrestler.

Terrible, just terrible.

Im done with the WWE. That was my last straw. Just deleted Raw, Smackdown and Sunday night Heat from my DVR pre recording lists.

I can see a drop in RAW ratings.

The hard part of wrestling today is being surprised and seeing something new. That's why it's rare to love a PPV. I thought this was a good 7/10 Wrestlemania. Worth the money. Here is a small breakdown:

Best of the night:
- Taker vs. Punk was ****ing awesome. The character of Punk was written well into the match. He was cocky by slapping and defying Taker. He showed he wasn't scared of the streak. Taker sold it by being pissed off and threw the ref away a few times and looked frazzled.

I pray to God I see some real exclusive backstage stuff of people praising this match. It's what wrestling is ALL about.


- Also huge props to The Shield for starting the night off the way it should be. A clean win and a very important one. Great stuff.


The Meh Group
- Even though we knew the ending to Cena/Rock, it should have ended with Cena out-smarting Rock. The extra counters sort of sucked. They also NEVER should have shook hands. That was even part of the promo from Rock! Okay match... but Cena/Punk shows us just how damn good Cena can be. Rock can barely go anymore and looks slow as hell. It slowed everything down.


- HHH/Brock: Wish Brock would have won. Don't see the reason for him losing in general. But it was a damn physical match. I loved the 3 time reversal for each guy on the submission. Thought that was cool.

Biggest Letdown

- World Champion means NOTHING right now. Swagger and Del Rio failed to live up to anything. This was the night for Dolph to take over and they let it slip by. It's his gimmick to STEAL THE SHOW. On the back of his pants read "My Time". I'm guessing we see it tomorrow as the Raw after WM always gives us a HUGE moment. But man oh man what a ****ing joke. A cash-in at Wrestlemania! That would have been huge.

The match sucked. Zeb was the only interesting thing the entire feud. Zeb deserves an A+ and the rest deserve to be laid off for all it matters. What a joke.

Average WM IMO. Definitely not up to par with last year, but I've seen worse ones.
