Good Wrestlemania, But not the best.

This Wrestlemania is pretty good here. Triple h vs orton shouldn't have been the main event, but still good ppv. Thanks for reading!

Money in the bank-Christian vs. Finlay vs. CM Punk vs. Mark Henry vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Kane vs. MVP vs. Kofi Kingston
This match is great and very fast paced. I didn't think that it was worthy of being the opener. Great spots in this match like Benjamin doing a dive off the ladder on to everyone, kofi getting world strongest slammed on a ladder, hornswoggle doing the tad pole splash on everyone, christian saving himself and the ladder, and a huge cokeslam off the ladder. The wrong man won though later cashing in his money in the bank and screwing Jeff Hardy. This match also includes a lot of highflying moments and ladder use.

25 diva battle royal/miss.wrestlemania title
no comment.

Chris Jericho vs. Jimmy Snuka, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat
This match is pretty good. It could have been better, but still good. I didn't like the stipulation to this match(elimination) Not very good with jericho winning. But great moment when jericho got punched by Mickey Rourke.

Jeff hardy vs. Matt Hardy-Extreme rules
Great match here. A good use of weapons in this mach like a, trash can, vacuum cleaner, tables, chairs, ladders, creches, Kendo sticks, and a wm 25 poster. What a moment when Jeff missed a leg drop off a 16 ft, also, if you look closely, you can see Jeff go through the ring some. Also, awesome moment when Jeff dived off the top rope and made Matt go through tables. A very sick ending.

JBL vs. Rey Mysterio-Intercontinental Championship
This match is a total waste and is just a filler. This match is only 21 seconds, and was dominated by JBL before the match was even started, and mysterio finally wins the intercontinental title. Great moment when JBLOSER quit. FINALLY!!!!! No more blubber.

Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels
I hope you can say the word classic because that is what this match is. This match is fast paced through the entire match and is never boring, and was like all their other matches, really good, except this was a classic. This match totally deserved to be the main event, but sadly wasn't. This match is defanatly match of the night and match of the year. I really liked the buildup for this and that these two had a very good rivalry going. Great moments when Shawn missed the moonsaulet, and when undertaker dived on a camera man. I loved that the streak continues to 17-0. Awesome moment when taker kicked out of the sweet chin music and michaels kicked out of the tombstone. Best moment in the match when taker countered the moonsaulet into the tombstone for the win. This match is very entertaining and is one of the best WWE and Wrestlemania matches ever. It is also the second longest Mania' match ever.

John Cena vs. Edge vs. Big Show-World Heavyweight Championship
Good match, but a little short for a triple threat, but still good. This match was surprisingly brutal with Cena pulling off the win with a attitude adjustment on big slow and edge. Also, great moment in the match when edge made big slow go through the barricade. Also, who can forget the super human effort by cena when he picked up slow and edge on his shoulders. Good triple threat here.

Triple H vs. Randy Orton-WWE Championship
I don't have much to say about this match it is so stupid. This match is almost watchable, but not very good. This is more like a brawl than a match and didn't deserve to be the main event. I like how hhh kicked orton in the skull and hit him with the sledge hammer when the ref was down and got the pedigree for the win to retain. The only good thing about this match was the orton goes too far and eliminates the McMahon factor buildup.

Good Wrestlemania here. I recommend getting this and adding it to your wwe collection.

      WWE   WRESTLEMANIA 25      1.[MITB] CHRISTIAN VS FINLAY VS CM PUNK VS MARK HENERY VS SHELTON BENJAMIN VS KANE VS MVP VS KOFI KINGSTON-as with every Mania this match was good and nothing but fun. That is all this match is meant to be really while at the same time put some one over. Of course there are numerous high spots and every one here gets in some good moments. I wouldn't say this is the best MITB match ever but like the others it is …

This Mania over all was ok not the best one ever for sure. Still there were some good matches to be had and the special features are good. The Hall of Fame was excellent as it is every year.

Considering this is labelled as the biggest event in the wrestling calendar, you would have thought the 25th anniversary would be the biggest yet. Considering the history this PPV has, you really would have thought they would go all out to try and create the biggest Wrestlemania to date, much like that tried to do with Wrestlemania 20. Like WM 20, this is a massive disappointment, but this seems like they haven't even bothered to try and make every match a memorable showcase. There were a few worthwhile …
