Overall Thoughts – This really didn’t feel like a WrestleMania for both the show and the crowd, but I managed to enjoy it. I really think the US Championship Match and a Money in the Bank match could have helped the PPV. The night kicked off with a Rock Promo which was very entertaining. The opener was very unusual way to start the show but I really loved this match for the time it got. Del Rio really proved that he can be a top contender in the WWE. Both equally got in their moves which was good, but. A lot of people were expecting Christian to turn heel but since that didn’t happen. Rhodes/Mysterio was very fun and I’m really happy Mysterio put over Rhodes. Rhodes had a great showing here and proved that he is breaking out of his Mid-Carder shell. The 8 Man Tag was quick which was basically a squash that buried The Corre. Orton/Punk was pretty good, both got there moves in and the finish was absolutely sick. Cole/Lawler was very slow and boring, but accomplished what it needed, similar to Hart/McMahon last year. The decision being reversed didn’t make sense at all. The Match of the Night, Once again Taker proved he could hang in there, and Triple H proved that he wasn’t over, HHH/Taker. I seriously loved this match and the storytelling might have been the best I’ve ever seen. I’m really glad this turned out the way it did and this really helped the PPV. Brunette Mafia/Ziggler & Laycool was short but Trish showed that she can still go. The Main Event was extremely weak and definitely shouldn’t have gone on last. The finish made no sense at all and they never should have ended the show like that. The Rock made this WrestleMania memorable but the matches could have been better, I recommend this to anybody just because it’s WrestleMania.
