One of the best WrestleManias I have ever witness! Man, did plenty of the IWC were eating a good feast of crow after watching this one. They were ready to trash this WrestleMania as the worst ever. Now they are listing this as one of the best of all time.
The Intercontinental Championship Match was an extremely fun opener to the show. Have some great spots, cool moments. The Headbutt battle between Bryan and Ziggler was sick as hell. Awesome that Bryan won and I hope he can put some credibility to the IC title.
Orton vs. Rollins was a fine match. It was a bit short but the purpose was great and DAT RKO in the end of the match had me going…
Sting vs. Triple H really did surprise me. Mostly because of Sting. I was completely expecting the TNA Sting that in the later parts of is career just flat out didn’t give a damn. Sting looked like he was younger than is actual age and it is really amazing. The DX/nWo thing was really cool with a callback to the Monday Night Wars between two of the Renegade factions of that era and all of them were taking some pretty good bumps which I was impressed with. The fact that Triple H won had me scratching my head a bit but not to the point where I downgrade the match.
The Divas Tag Team Match was okay at best. It told a decent story throughout. Didn’t weaken the card and I felt the right team won.
The United States Title Match was a solid Match and it was just that. Nothing too special and Cena pulls out a Springboard Stunner which I was surprised with. Just don’t get out that move everytime and use it on Special Occasions and it’s all good. Would be pretty interesting how Cena’s title reign will be but if he defends against good opponents and have awesome matches with them, I think it would be fine.
Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt was a good match but that’s basically it. Taker looked in WAY better shape than last year and he and Bray had a really good match against one another. The Spiderwalk/Sit Up spot was really friggin’ cool.
And now the Main Event…..My goodness, it was excellent booking and how it was handled. Before the twist in the match, Brock and Roman had a really brutal and intense fight. Brock was beating Roman the hell down and Roman had that look of, “Is that all you got?!” Which pissed off Brock some more and it was really intense. The timing of the Money In The Bank Cash-In was brilliant, new and refreshing. Plus, it accomplished 3 things. The first being that it made Brock still look like the Beast that he is. The Second being that it gave Roman at least some respect after taking the ass kicking but tough enough to take it, come back and get back in the fight. And finally, it got the title on Rollins and have Roman chase after the title. Everyone there looked like a Million Dollars that night.
Overall, an amazing and kick ass WrestleMania. Could be in my Top 10 Favorite WrestleManias. I seriously recommend it!
Overall Rating: HALL OF FAME!!!!
