Mania came and went, and I invested heavily into this one. I spent 6 hours of my Sunday watching this thing. Was it good? Well here are my thoughts.
WWE Tag Teach Championship Match
Tyson Kidd and Cesaro win a fatal 4 way
This match was good to start things off. The Usos were basically eliminated due to injury. However, there were a lot of moments that were definitely worth looking at. I liked the tandem moves, the frenetic pace, and definitely enjoyed how things moved through. Natalya is hot, I loved her outfit, and couldn’t look away. Tyson Kidd seemed injured at the end, but the win was strong, a good match for me.
Big Show won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal
I did not like this match. However, the ending was ok. Mizdow should’ve won, but that’s ok. I liked the match and really enjoyed the eliminations that came through. There’s not much to say here. Great action, lots of cool spots, including the NXT member whose name escapes me.
Daniel Bryan wins the Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match
Bryan took a beating. Ambrose nearly died out there. The whole match was hard hitting. I didn’t peg Bryan to win, but am glad he was able to pull it off. The follow up interview after was awesome, with all the former intercontinental champions congratulating him. I’m hoping he goes down as a fighting champion, as there’s a lot of competition for him. Great match, fun, lots of high spots.
Randy Orton defeated Seth Rollins
I never liked Orton. Until now. He is a machine. Like a well-oiled machine he plowed through Seth Rollins in this one. I loved the RKO out of the air, and just found this to be a great match up. Orton’s win made me think that there was something in the air for later. Orton needs more competition.
Triple H defeated Sting
Sting put on a hell of a show with Triple H. The two got along great in the ring. DX came out to help Trips, then the New World Order came out to help Sting. I loved it. I was expecting Ric Flair to come out, but he didn’t. At the end, Sting went down and was defeated. I loved the match and really thought the two put something good together.
AJ Lee and Paige defeated The Bella Twins
I had to use the bathroom. I heard this was an ok match. I saw a little of it, it doesn’t catch my eye, the divas are getting better though.
John Cena defeated Rusev for the United States Championship
For a moment, I thought Cena was going down. Nope. No matter how much I hate him, he seems to find a way to win. He pulled out some great moves here. I liked the match enough, however, I didn’t want Cena to win. Lana is hot as hell.
The Undertaker defeated Bray Wyatt
Taker was looking old and was selling Wyatt’s move set. I liked the match well enough, but you know, Taker is just looking tired. It was an entertaining match, but it wasn’t grand.
Ronda Rousey is the hottest woman on the planet. I love her. I wish I had a chance to date her. That being said, the Rock came down and challenged Triple H after a promo. Stephanie got in his face, and Ronda came over the rail as Rock brought her out. Then she took on Trips and Stephanie in a great WrestleMania moment!
Seth Rollins Cashes in Money In The Bank To Win The WWE Title
Brock Lesnar is a machine. He tore Roman a new one. He completely blew away Reigns here. Reigns absolutely got beaten down. I was impressed. Lesnar was busted open the hard way. Seth Rollins ran down amidst the beating and cashed in the Money in the Bank. NO ONE CALLED THIS! He then went back and forth with Lesnar a bit before Lesnar caught him in mid-air and then got speared by Reigns. Holy crap I went nuts and after a curb stomp on Reigns, ROLLINS won the title and ran away.
SETH Rollins is the new champ.
Overall WrestleMania thought? This has been the most enjoyable Mania I’ve seen in a long time. I loved it. I can’t wait to see how they follow this up.
