Wrestlemania 25 review: ****SPOILER WARNING****

So I watched Wrestlemania 25 last night, here is my review of each match and the ppv over all. I’ll scroll down a bit with a spoiler warning for those wrestling fans who didn’t watch it yet…so if you haven’t watched it yet, do not scroll down any further:

CM Punk wins the “Money in the Bank Ladder Match” for the 2nd time – I kind of had a feeling that WWE were going to give the win to CM Punk. Christian almost had the win, he was doing good, but of course, they had to give it to CM Punk. I was rooting for Christian to win, but my prediction was wrong on this match. This match was ok. It had some pretty good bumps and dangerous stunts but nothing all that special.

“Santina” Marella wins the 25 Diva Battle Royal – During the Kid Rock live performance, the 25 Divas started walking down the ramp, dancing with Kid Rock while he’s performing and Divas giving him kisses as they made their way to the ring to begin the “25 Diva Battle Royal”. This was actually a pretty entertaining match for comic material. There were some returning Divas from the past, coming back for this one match. Divas like: Molly Holly, Sunny, Gail Kim, Torrie Wilson, Victoria, and a few other past Divas in action. The match ended with Beth Phoenix trying to eliminate a Diva over the top rope, when a Diva named “Santina” Marella, pushed Beth Phoenix over and elminated her. “Santina” Marella is the winner. Who is “Santina” Marella? It’s no one other than male wrestler Santino Marella dressed as a woman. It was funny. It’s good to have some comedy in wrestling sometimes.

Chris Jericho defeated the Legends – Here is a prediction I got right. I knew Chris Jericho was going to win this one no matter what happens. This match was fucking awesome. I think this was one of the best matches of the night. Piper and Snuka was wrestling pretty well, but Ricky Steamboat was amazing and he still has it. The match ended with Ricky and Chris wrestling in the ring together alone. At age 50 or over, Ricky still has his technical high flying moves he did in the past. Mickey Rourke was at ringside. After the match got over with, Chris Jericho called Mickey Rourke to the ring to beg him to apologize. Instead, Mickey punched Jericho in the face and knocked him out. Then Ric Flair entered the ring to celebrate it with Rourke. Entertaining. My favorite match of Wrestlemania 25.

Rey Mysterio wins the IC title from JBL – This match only lasted for a quick 5 minutes. Rey Mysterio came out wearing a Joker “Dark Knight” Heath Ledger costume. Although the match was pretty quick, it was a powerful moment of Wrestlemania history that people will be talking about for years.

Matt Hardy defeated Jeff Hardy in Extreme Rules match – As usual, these two put on great matches. This match was the best they’ve ever done. Lots of high flying and dangerous stuff, typical Hardy Boys match, you get the drill.

John Cena wins the Champ from Edge and Big Show in Triple Threat – I think I’m starting to like John Cena more and more. Used to not like him like everyone else, but Cena is improving and becoming more entertaining than ever. I think this was his best match in a long while.

Undertaker defeated Shawn Michaels – Now this felt like a Wrestlemania match, this match was hands down incredible, it felt like the 80’s all over again with this match. If WWE keeps having matches like this in Wrestlemania, people would get interested again. Both men performed wonderfully. This match was electrifying and jaw dropping. This match easily goes down in Wrestlemania history.

Triple H retains title with match against Randy Orton – This match was pretty much nothing special, a real sleeper. It felt like a RAW main event match, not a Wrestlemania match. There were no interferences and no weapons used in this match, this match was wrestled cleanly.

Overall a, pretty good Wrestlemania. Best matches of the night were “Chris Jericho vs. the Legends” and “Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels”. Hope WWE does better next year.

Cool Video: Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat’s induction into the Wrestling Hall of Fame…

Here is Ricky Steamboat’s induction into the Wrestling Hall of Fame. Steamboat is scheduled to have a match against Chris Jericho tonight at Wrestlemania 25. It’s “Steamboat, Jimmy Snuka, Roddy Piper vs. Jericho”, a 3 on 1 match.

Enjoy.

Cool Video: Stone Cold’s induction at the Wrestling Hall of Fame…

The Rock and Roll Hall of fame wasn’t the only Hall of Fame show going on last night. WWE had their “Wrestling Hall of Fame” last night.

Stone Cold is not scheduled for Wrestlemania tonight, but will the Texas Rattlesnake somehow be in action since Texas is his home state? Which match will Stone Cold interfere tonight to raise some hell?

My guess is the “Chris Jericho vs. The Legends” match.

Here is Vince McMahon inducting Stone Cold. Enjoy.

Cool Video: Shane McMahon on TMZ…

WWE star and he’s also the company’s businessman behind the scenes of WWE, Shane McMahon gets caught by TMZ while walking the streets of NYC. This is Vince McMahon’s real life biological son.

Shane seems psyched and pumped up for Wrestlemania tomorrow night. Look at him, he definitely looks happy and upbeat, getting ready for Wrestlemania. So you know, Shane’s obviously going to be part of the action during the, “Triple H vs. Randy Orton” championship match.

Thought: Dave Batista return at Wrestlemania this weekend? Will the Animal interfere the Triple H vs. Randy Orton match?

Rumours swirling the webs, that “The Animal” Dave Batista might return to WWE soon this year, he is clear from his injury to come back. Dave said in an interview once that he might have a match at Wrestlemania this Sunday but don’t know if he’ll be back in time for a storyline for it. Could he make his return at Wrestlemania 25 this Sunday? If he did, then it would make sense if he interfered the, ‘Triple H vs. Randy Orton” match. As you wrestling fans may already know, Batista has lots of history with Orton. As all three were in the group, Evolution, with Ric Flair in the past.

I would like to see a Batista comeback. The “Triple H. vs Randy Orton” match may not get any interferences at all, and they just wrestle clean. We’ll just have to wait this Sunday to find out.

Wrestlemania 25 matches and final prediction winners…

It is finally here. “Wrestlemania 25” is just around the corner, it’s this Sunday night on PPV. Here is the official “Wrestlemania 25” card with all of my winner predictions with it.

WWE Champion (headlining main event): Triple H vs. Randy Orton

Winner: Randy Orton

(Everyone wants Triple H to retain, but it ain’t going to happen. Randy Orton is a new star on the rise. On RAW last Monday night, Vince and Shane came back to confront Randy Orton and his group along with Triple H, the Legacy. This means that Vince McMahon and Shane will possibly be at Triple H’s side at the match at Wrestlemania when Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase Jr. interfere. Randy Orton will win this all the way.)

World Heavyweight Champion (Triple Threat Match): Edge vs. John Cena vs. Big Show

Winner: John Cena

(I think Wrestlemania 25 is going to be mostly heels winning, but to have a babyface win a match to keep the fans happy, I think Cena will be victorious at Wrestlemania this year. Reason? His new movie “12 Rounds” came out, with Cena as champ, it’ll be good promotion for the movie)

Intercontinental Champion: JBL vs. Rey Mysterio

Winner: JBL

(Mysterio and JBL had a non title singles match on RAW last night, Mysterio won, that’s proof, that JBL will be victorious)

Extreme Rules Match: Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy

Winner: Jeff Hardy

(This match will be a pretty damn good one, there will definitely be a lot of high flying and technical moves in this one. The Hardys has always been known to put on amazing matches when the two brothers are wrestling against each other. Jeff will be the winner of this one)

WWE Tag Team Champion vs. World Tag Team Champion (Unified Champ match): Carlito & Primo vs. John Morrison & The Miz

Winner: John Morrison & The Miz

(Who ever wins, the winner wins all the belts. John Morrison and the Miz will definitely be the winner of this one because they are rising stars, this will be their Wrestlemania moment)

Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker

Winner: Undertaker

(Undertaker will win every Wrestlemania until he retires, period)

Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Christian vs. CM Punk vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Kofi Kingston vs. MVP vs. Finlay

Winner: Christian

(Christian just returned to the WWE after a long run in the TNA company. They will continue to push Christian to the top, so he can have a future feud with his former tag team partner, Edge, for a possible Edge & Christian reunion)

The 25 Diva Battle Royal

Winner: Maryse

(Everyone’s expecting Melina or Beth Phoenix to be the big winner, but to be put on a little surprise, I think Maryse will be victorious. Vince McMahon have been having the hots for Maryse behind the scenes of wrestling that he’s been pushing her and giving her lots of screen time. This will be Maryse’s Wrestlemania moment)

Chris Jericho vs. The WWE Legends w/Ric Flair in their corner

Winner: Chris Jericho

(There is no way Jericho is going to lose this. I still stand by it that Mickey will somehow turn on the Legends and team up with Jericho ’cause that’s what it’s looking like to me. We’ll wait to see what happens)

There are my winner predictions. Feel free to discuss or make your predictions.

Report: Afa the Wild Samoan training Mickey Rourke for Wrestlemania 25…

This article reports that Afa the Wild Samoan, who is Mickey Rourke’s trainer for the movie, “The Wrestler” is reuniting with Rourke for Wrestlemania 25. Does this mean that Afa is training Rourke for Wrestlemania 25? Does this mean that Mickey Rourke will do a lot more moves in the match with “Chris Jericho vs. The Legends” then punching in the face? That’s what its looking like, so I think Mickey Rourke will be part of the action with Jericho’s match this Sunday at Wrestlemania.

I’ll be posting my “Wrestlemania 25” winner predictions later today.
