I guess I’ll review “Wrestlemania 27”, right now, but I’ll put a spoiler warning on.
I thought this was a very good Wrestlemania, not the best ever, but I’ve seen better from the past. I thought WWE did a good job last night. I enjoyed everything about the PPV and wasn’t bored a bit. Below, I’ll explain everything that went on and what I liked about it. I’ll explain what I liked in detail. I’ll put a Spoiler warning on for those who haven’t saw last night’s WRESTLEMANIA.
Here we go on with the review…
————————–DO NOT SCROLL DOWN IF YOU DIDN’T SEE IT————-
First off, the Rock was the first one to come out to the ring. He delivered a great promo like he always did. He said really nothing special. All he said he promised this is going to be a very memorable Wrestlemania and he promised a surprise for John Cena at the end of the show.
After the Rock leaves, the first match that happens is the World Heavyweight Championship match between Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio….
In this match I said Alberto Del Rio was going to win, my prediction was wrong. Edge ended up getting the win, retaining his title. Christian came out to be in Edge’s corner in this match, everyone was expecting Alberto to win and Christian to turn heel, but neither of these things happened. I liked that little twist in this match because WWE is trying to keep things unpredictable. It was a fun match though and these two guys put on a great story. The match ended with Edge & Christian destroying Alberto’s car.
Next up, we get Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio. Both men are masked wrestlers. I love Cody Rhodes new gimmick, it’s so dark and creepy. I used to never like Cody Rhodes, but I like him a lot more now. The reason for Cody’s mask is so he can use it as a weapon, very creative, in my opinion. I thought this match was very entertaining. Cody is a pretty good heel and he ended up wining the match like I predicted in that video, so I got that one right.
Next up we get Kane, Big Show, Kofi Kingston, Santino Marella vs. The Corre. It was a very quick and short match. Kane & Big Show’s team ended up getting the win for that one. The reason this match was a quick one is ’cause of timing issues for other matches on the card, plus, the WWE wanted to give the good guys a chance to be heroes for Wrestlemania for the kids.
Next up: CM Punk vs. Randy Orton. As expected, Randy Orton got the win which I predicted. Of course, this was going to be a great match like Randy Orton matches are always great. This was one of the best matches of the night.
Next up is Michael Cole vs. Jerry Lawler. Everyone expected Jerry Lawler to get the win, but the WWE ended up letting Michael Cole win. This is one match that shocked me. Of course, everyone hated Lawler losing, people online are complaining, but I’m actually glad Michael Cole got the win. It gives him more heat as a heel. I can see why WWE gave Cole the win on Wrestlemania. Lawler is a Hall of Famer and legend. Michael Cole is a young talent. Lawler got the win at first, but the RAW anonymous GM disqualified him due to interference with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Many people hated the way this match turned out, but I thought it was perfect. It was shocking and unpredictable, the way story lines are supposed to be.
Triple H. vs. The Undertaker – No Holds Barred Match. Of course, the Undertaker won, 19-0. WWE did a great job getting everyone thinking that Undertaker was going to lose which he didn’t. As expected this was the best match of the night. Pretty emotional and powerful match too.
Lay-Cool & Dolph Ziggler vs. Trish Stratus, Snooki, and John Morrison. This match was very entertaining. Like I explained before, Snooki did that impressive pin wheel move, that acrobatic thing, whatever it is. Whether you like Snooki or not, you gotta give her respect just this one time for her impressive athleticism. No complaints for this match.
The Miz vs. John Cena – I thought this was a great match too. A lot of people online are being critical about it, but I thought it was fine. Everyone knew that the Rock was going to be involved which he did interfere of course, but he came out at the end of the match. The match was over when John Cena and the Miz were outside of the ring in the audience, laying on the ground, out cold from brutal beatings. It was a disqualification with a count out, so the Miz ended up winning. The Rock’s music hits and The Rock came out. The Rock takes the mic and orders the match to continue. Which the match did. When the Miz and Cena got back into the ring, the Rock was waiting for Cena to give him the Rock Bottom. After Cena was taken out by the Rock, the Miz pinned Cena the 1-2-3, the match ends right there. I can see why people complained how the match ended. The reason for the 10 count out disqualification is that the WWE wanted to trick people that the match was over, in order for it to make sense to bring the Rock out, since he is Wrestlemania host.
Over all I thought this was a great Wrestlemania. I was entertained all the way through. Surprising appearances by Snoop Dogg, Pee Wee Herman, Mean Gene Okerlund, Roddy Piper, and Mae Young were on the show. I’m disappointed that the Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan match was taken off the ppv card and moved to the dark match before the ppv.
Not a bad Wreslemania at all, I liked it. Looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen tonight on RAW.
Score for “Wrestlemania 27” = *** (3 stars as in “excellent”)
