Good to see most of the fan feedback has been positive, fantastic Wrestlemania, I said on paper this show looked very good despite the lacklustre build and on the night it delivered and more.
The pre-show was good, very enjoyable tag-match and thought the Battle Royal was decent too, Big Show winning seemed a poor outcome but I suspect maybe hes retiring very soon and they wanted to give him one last Wrestlemania moment, I was cursing as I had a £10 bet on Ryback. Angry It was pretty crowd pleasing stuff, Ryback dominating, Mizdow chucking Miz out then putting in a good showing before being eliminated.
The Intercontinental ladder match was very good, Wrestlemania has been missing this kind of match to kick things off and I hope this becomes a staple of the event, the Bryan win should help keep the smarks happy, was hoping Truth would pull off the upset.
Orton vs Rollins - very solid match although I think these two could produce better, struggled to follow the ladder match, the ending sequence was absolutely sick though, possibly best finish to a WWE match ever.
Sting vs Triple H - match of the night, not a technical masterpiece or a a spot-fest by any means but the lack of athleticism was more than compensated for by the storytelling, nostalgia and big fight aura. Triple H's Terminator entrance was great as well.
Marked out like a kid for the NWO and DX squaring off, how could anyone not love that. Triple H winning was the right call, wins and losses didn't matter here the match was a great spectacle and a proper Wrestlemania moment, if this was to be Stings final match then its very fitting, likewise for Tripper although I highly doubt hes calling it a day in the ring just yet.
Divas match was good enough by the ladies standards but as usual I had very little interest.
Cena vs Rusev was actually pretty good, liked Cena's off the ropes stunner spot, he should use moves like that more rather than his terrible STF, Rusev entering in a tank was cool stuff. The ending was lame and predictable though although I get Cena really had to win here.
Much as I always enjoy The Rock this segment was waaaaay too long and just seemed like they were stalling, the guys who had their matches shunted to the pre-show due to time-contraints must hate everyone involved in this segment. I wish it had gone somewhere as well like setting up a match for The Rock at next years Wrestlemania but I guess he just cant commit 100% to a match that far away with his schedule. It was what it was and good that Ronda Rousey got involved as everyone wanted to see it, she should have done more than twist Steph's arm though that was pretty lame. On a side note how fucking hot is Ronda!!!!!
Bray vs The Undertaker was disappointing - very watchable match but failed to really draw me in and I felt it made Wyatt look a bit weak, Taker defeated him fairly easily and it just felt like after all the effort of building Bray as a big deal Taker comes back for one night and pins him, the end. Thought Brays entrance with the creepy scarecrows was very cool though.
Roman vs Brock was excellent, class A booking here, having Lesnar beast him for the entire match which helped cover up the fact Reigns is still a bit green and helped with the awkward crowd reaction he was getting, it made his comeback really gripping especially with Lesnar bleeding all over the place, Rolllins gatecrashing and cashing in was fantastic stuff, loved every minute of it, great finish that made booking sense as Brock will likely now take a sabbatical leaving Rollins to feud with Reigns.
Really enjoyed it, several great matches, not one bad match and loads of memorable moments, sure bet for PPV of the year.
