Dissapointing like it's been for a fair few years now at Mania where Taker has been involved.
 
The correct result happened but the moment was stollen by it being more about the loser.
 
Roman should have been booked as heelish, but management will be pleased he didn't get very booed. Be shit for him to get booed too badly in his home state LOL

In fairness if this was the final match of The Undertaker which I think it's fairly clear it was then him taking the spotlight post-match was a classy thing to do and the right thing to do to mark the end of a legendary career that will possibly never be matched. Roman went over strong here and will always hold the bragging rights as the guy who beat Taker in his final Wrestlemania outing. I actually think the leaving his gear in the ring and lapping up the respect from the fans was a pretty moving end to his career, I'm sure if he'd wanted he could have had a much bigger more show stealing moment but he went with traditional which I liked.

The match I enjoyed but Taker has clearly lost a step and appeared to be struggling, the tombstone botched spot a prime example and just how worn out and in pain he looked. I think this is the right time to end his in-ring career as any future performances would just see his match quality dip further and further, plus putting over the newly established top guy in the company is the classy way to finish his career.

At this point I hope Reigns continues to win big matches for at least the next several years. If he's never going to be accepted by the smarks then they need to go full-Cena with Reigns, keep him babyface, keep him Super-Reigns, and the lightning rod of hate in the WWE. It'll make watching smarks nerd-rage fun again. Hating on Cena, and watching them freak out got old after CM Punk beat him at Money in the Bank. Now it's Reigns' turn.

Exactly it makes for some great moments. CM Punk vs Cena was great, the smarks favourite battling the management favourite. Really it's win win as they have a guy who can move merchandise and sell tickets but who can just as easily engage in feuds with top babyfaces as he can with heels due to his split crowd reactions.
