i should have seen HBK losing. WWE probably thinks there pretty clever by having him say he's not gonna be retiring anytime soon(monday?) and then have him lose the retirement match.

i guess they just went for the twist as opposed to some subtle foreshadowing...

Wrestlemania XXVI was pretty average. I'd say around 7/10.


The mainevent was awesome, but the only other match I would personally consider Wrestlemania quality was Jericho/Edge. The Hart/McMahon thing was nonsense, the only people getting screwed that night were the fans. I can see what they were trying to do with 'Bret screwing Vince', but I thought it was executed terribly. It had no need to go on for as long as it did.


I lol'd at some of the Hart women calling Vince a coward when he grabbed the tyre iron, despite the fact that they had just watched 5 guys gang-beating him. It's things like that which make me want to cheer the heels.

They should wrestle with bears, that would be fun!
In other news: I don't know bollocks about wrestling. And I'm not really watching it either.

It was so disappointing, had the potential to be as good as the Shane vs Vince match at Wrestlemania 17, which was awesome (best ppv ever IMO) but just epically failed

Main event was fantastic as well. Kept me awake that one did haha.

Did a little review on 'Mania

ShowMiz vs. R-Truth & John Morrison

Pretty uninspiring, really thought this could have gone at least 15 minutes. Nobody came out of this looking dominant, it might as well have been pulled from the card. 4/10


Randy Orton vs. Ted DiBiase vs. Codey Rhodes

Too predictable throughout, and making Orton win was just daft and accomplished nothing. Ted and Codey's falling out was nothing much either. 4/10


Money In The Bank

All in all, the match was pretty good. Swagger won though, which made no sense as his pre-match booking made him look incredibly weak. He even said on Raw that if he won the MITB he'd cash it in later that night, but didn't. Also, the amount of times Matt Hardy almost won it was terrifying. 7/10


Triple H vs. Sheamus

This match was quite boring, and the crowd didn't really seem to care. Triple H managed to no-sell pretty much everything, and made Sheamus look weak throughout. Badly booked. 4/10


CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio

Far too short, nowhere near as spectacular as we all expected. Rey won aswell, which pretty much ends the angle right there. A Punk win could extend it by a couple of months at least, and give us the great match they were destined to have. Good while it lasted. 6/10


Mr. McMahon vs. Bret Hart

Started off well with Vince bringing our the remaining Harts as his own lumberjacks, but the twist was revealed too soon. The lumberjacks beat up Vince a LOT before handing him to Bret who insisted on beating him with a crowbar for what seemed like an hour. Terrible. 2/10


Chris Jericho vs. Edge

Really good, but I think these two could do better with more time. Too many matches at this year's 'Mania, and too much time given to rubbish matches. Unexpected end for most, although I was happy. No idea why they had the post-match brawl then NOT have Swagger cash in MITB. 7/10


Divas Clusterf*ck Tag Team Match

Absolutely shocking. I would have been appalled if I hadn't been laughing so hard. Bad sequence of moves at the start, and Vickie Guerrero pulling off the WORST frog splash in history. This was later followed by the worst pin in history. Godawful. 1/10


Batista vs. John Cena

Not bad, although Cena had to carry (sometimes literally) Batista in this one. I actually thought Cena might have been dead after that move early on. Batista poorly delivered most moves, as expected. I like the Five Knuckle Shuffle from the top rope, but the finish was nothing new. 6/10


Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels

Wow. I expected this match to pale in comparison to last year's match but they just about equalled it. Lots of false finishes and cool spots. I really like the ending with Taker telling Shawn to just stay down, HBK slapping him then the best Tombstone I've ever seen. 9/10


Overall, the card was just too crowded. Some matches could have been Raw main events instead, or just never happened, and left the remaining matches to shine. Some unexpected results though, which was nice. Really liked the pyramid tron too 5/10

I may be hearing things, but as Shawn was walking up the ramp, did he say "I'll be back in 3 weeks" or something to that effect? All I heard was "Something something 3 weeks." Did anyone else catch that?

Also, I can start to see an Edge heel turn after that little stunt after his match.

"I'll drive my kids nuts in 3 weeks".

Can't wait to see Swagger win the title soon, just a shame I'm on a boycott until Dave wins his belt back.

I, as well, think the card was overbooked. It seemed like the PPV could have gone one more hour. However, the pyro and the stage looked great.


Oh, and I think we can all agree that the "hogsplash" was one of the most disgraceful things we have ever seen in wrestling.

As I said on MSN, ranking the past 5 WMs:
24 > 25 > 23 > 26 > 22

24 > 22 > 23 > 25 > 26.

22 ranks high because of the epic Edge/Foley and Mickie/Trish matches.

I am, Mickie James vs Trish Stratus is one of my favourite WrestleMania matches ever.

Up there with my favourite, Dave vs Undertaker from 23.

So I'm rewatching the match.

Mickies reaction to everything. The psychotic screaming, the suggestive licking through the Vs, Mickie in general.
The crowd booing Trish Stratus and loving EVERYTHING Mickie does.
Mickie winning.
Trish being lovely.

It's just a brilliant match, if you hate it you're gay or have no taste.

But WM22 had Undi Vs. Henry!
One of the worst matches of all time!

That match could be worse than the Hogsplash was. >__>

NO SIR.

XX had Eddie vs. Angle, the Undertaker's best return, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar getting booed out of the building, and an awesome main event with the most Wrestlemania-y ending ever. Plus it had that epic stage where the entire floor was a video screen and it bothers me to this day that they haven't used it since.

You left out the part where that was right after she grabbed Trish's crotch. Giggity.

It never really had that kind of potential. We all knew Bret wasn't going to be doing much wrestling. Or, as it turned out, any.

The worst Mania is 24 i think

I am pissed off about Jack Swagger winning MITB, he has done a grand total of nothing since losing the ECW title, he is quite boring, and would be one of the worst people to go for the title. I'm also annoyed that Edge didn't win the title, i just hope he wins it at extreme rules as i'd quite like Edge to be champion.

oh please, Taker's return at XX was meh, the match was crap (their XV match was better) the only thing that stood out was his entrance.

The Triple threat was ok, and it had one of the best post match celebration EVER.. but thats it... and Brock V G-Berg was 13-15 min long and they stared ang gave man hugs to each other for 10 minutes

*Is offended at the lack of Huw on the regulars*

I thought Wrestlemania was alright, MITB came as a shock, as did Edge losing, HBK/Taker was a lot better than I expected though, and the Diva's.....thing, was just awful.

They need to just cut the Diva's division besides Beth, Mickie, Gail and McCool...then bring back Lita...

Anyway, WM was ok i guess...The main event was spectacular though. Even though HBK missed his Moonsault off the top to the table, it was still kick ass. Shawn was awesome as always, and even the way the match started was awesome. Some of the moves (Like the loud ass Sweet Chin Music and Taker's best tombstone ever) were executed great, and so many close counts...it literally had me on the edge of my seat thinking "This is it...no, this it...no, this!" it was awesome...

But, Drew McIntyre not winning the MitB makes Dean a sad panda...

Quote by naw2
Jack Swagger!

What The ****!



Why did he win MITB


Because he's extremely talented and the best guy by quite a distance in the match?

Christian doesn't need MITB, it would have been the stupidest bit of booking on the show if he won.

Imagine your Anderson for Ken Anderson and that is almost the level of hatred i have for Swagger. I recognise that has a bit of talent but i just find him really irritating to the level of not watching any of his matches.
