WWE: WrestleMania XXVIII

WWE
WRESTLEMANIA 28

This was a big Mania historically since The Rock returned and was coming off a yearlong build to his match with John Cena. And that of course was what most people were looking forward to. Me myself I was looking forward to Taker vs. Triple H with HBK returning as the special ref. The event had good matches, great matches, and of course celebrities, especially in the main event.

1.[WORLD TITLE]DANIEL BRYAN VS SHEAMUS-I am sure everyone now knows what happened with this match. I have to say I absolutely hated it, why waste what could have been a great match. This thing turned into an 18 second squash match with Sheamus becoming champion.

2.RANDY ORTON VS KANE-the next match would see Orton coming at Kane hard and trying to take him out early. Randy looked good in this match delivering things like a wonderful dropkick but Kane kept coming back. This was a pretty good match and I loved that it ended with Kane winning. I really felt like Orton needed to lose this one but when we were watching live I just knew WWE was going to have him win. Luckily I was wrong and the right guy won, Kane was back to being evil during this time.

3.[I-C TITLE]CODY RHODES VS BIG SHOW-this match was all about Big Show having his Mania moment and finally coming out on top. This like the last was a good match over all but nowhere near the best on the card. Cody of course worked his speed here and tried chopping Show down but it was not to be. Show finally got his moment.

4.BETH PHOENIX & EVE VS KELLY KELLY & MARIA MENOUNOS-this was a much better match than it was supposed to be. There is always the forced Diva's match and of course the celebrity appearance. Well this match gave us both and I have to say I was impressed with Maria. She had previously injured her ribs on "Dancing with the Stars" with cracked ribs I believe and still wrestled in his match. Plus all the other ladies worked well here especially Beth as you will see. Your typical Diva's match but a good showing over all especially with an injured celebrity who actually wrestled in the match.

5.[HELL IN A CELL with SHAWN MICHAELS AS SPECIAL REF]UNDERTAKER VS TRIPLE H-I was honestly surprised that this match was this early on since I knew it was going to be good. I was excited that HBK was back in some way as the ref. This turned out to be the best match on the card in my opinion with all three adding to it. When I watched this it reminded me of the great storytelling matches from back in the day. Both Triple H and Taker were brutal to each other here giving us a great back and forth contest. But in my opinion it was Shawn that made this match even more special. Watch and I am sure you will see what I am saying. In the end Taker keeps the streak alive but it is the embrace in the ring and up the ramp to the stage that makes this a great Mania moment.

6.TEAM LAURINAITIS{DAVID OTUNGA, MARK HENRY, DOLPH ZIGGLER, JACK SWAGGER, THE MIZ, & DREW MCINTYRE} VS TEAM LONG {SANTINO MARELLA, R-TRUTH, KOFI KINGSTON, ZACK RYDER, THE GREAT KHALI, & BOOKER T}-I really enjoy these multi man matches because of the fast pace each usually delivers and the high spots of course. Trust me I love a great classic match but sometimes a quick, fast paced, and high spot highlight reel match is just fun. I of course was all about Johnny Ace's team and wanted them to win. Thankfully they did after a very entertaining match that even had Booker T joining the match which is always cool.

7.[WWE TITLE]CM PUNK VS CHRIS JERICHO-what do you do when two guys both think they are the best in the world? You put them in a match at Wrestlemania of course especially if the two guys can make legitimate arguments to make that claim. Now before the match Johnny added a stipulation saying that in Punk was DQ'd he would lose the title. This of course only added to Jericho's offense since now he could play his mind games using Punk's past against him. Punk did not fall for it and forced Y2J to wrestle him. This of course was great for all us fans as this was a great match between the two. Punk goes on to keep the title and further his claim to being the "best in world".

8.JOHN CENA VS THE ROCK-of course we come to the main event and the match that the mainstream was all about. The match had so much hype behind it and a yearlong build that got more interesting as the year went on. In fact the build even had Cena return to his rapping ways, both he and Rock were entertaining. So did the match live up to the hype, I guess it depends on who you ask. To me personally I think it did live up to the hype but it fell short of epic, I don't know how else to describe it. The match was very good and the Rock is always entertaining no matter what he does. Both men had near falls and delivered with their performance. Of course I am sure you all know who won this one, which of course was The Rock after Cena got cocky attempting the people's elbow.

BONUS MATCH
1.[TRIPLE THREAT TAG TITLE]EPICO & PRIMO VS TYSON KIDD VS THE USOS-this was a fast paced triple threat match with the usual high spots in these types of matches. There is even one moment that leaves one man injured for real. In the end the champs Epico and Primo retain their titles.

This was a good Mania over all that had no bad matches in my opinion and some really good ones. It delivered for the most part but it wouldn't be my favorite. There are some great special features like the HOF of course and stuff from Raw amongst others.

I have to say that I wasn’t too impressed with Wrestlemania 28, and I did not expect much. The one match that really saved it for me was the “End of an Era” match between Undertaker and Triple H with HBK as the guest referee. That match stole the show; it was exciting, dramatic and intense. I mean it was a “Hell in a Cell” match so it met my expectations. The question now is, where does the Taker go from here?      The main event “Once in a …

John Cena vs. The Rock. The biggest superstars of the last two generations clash in a Main Event that's been one year in the making. It's the biggest WrestleMania in history when WWE comes to Miami, Florida for WrestleMania 28.
