WrestleMania 28 Results: 10 Most Shocking Incidents from This Year's Event
Many will feel that WrestleMania 28 lived up to the hype, others will feel it fell short. One thing you can't argue is that there were some shocking moments.
Any event that has three championship matches, a streak match and Cena vs. Rock has to come with shocking moments.
Here is a look at 10 shocking moments from WrestleMania 28.
WrestleMania 28 started off with a bang as Sheamus defeated Daniel Bryan for the Heavyweight Championship, in 18 seconds. Nobody could have seen this coming.
This match could have been a well-fought one. Bryan is one of the best technical wrestlers in the WWE and could have put on a memorable WrestleMania match against Sheamus.
There had to be at least one million jaws that hit the floor after the ref hit the mat three times.
Kane's Choke Slam off the Top Ropes
After Orton kicked out of a Choke Slam, it appeared as if he would cruise to a victory. He was setting up Kane for a devastating move off the top ropes, but Kane turned it into a Choke Slam.
The match was nothing special but the reversal by Kane made the ending exciting.
Kelly Kelly Flip
The Diva's division has struggled lately. They fail to get serious air time each week and only three Diva's are in a match at WrestleMania.
Kelly Kelly showed a glimpse of why the Diva's division might need to get more attention. The only memorable thing from this match was Kelly Kelly's flip from the top ropes onto Beth Phoenix. This move was actually exciting and rare for a Diva.
We knew that Undertaker was sporting a new hair style but it was not revealed until WrestleMania. After a long walk to the ring, Undertaker ripped his hood off and showed the WWE Universe his shaved head.
Unfortunately for me, Undertaker without long hair didn't feel like Undertaker.
Sweet Chin Music into Pedigree
Shawn Michaels was the special guest referee for the match between Triple H and Undertaker. He was calling the match fair but was put in the Hells Gate by Undertaker.
This led to Michaels hitting Undertaker with a super kick, immediately followed by a pedigree from Triple H. It was awesome to see Michaels and Triple H working together again. What was more shocking is that it wasn't enough to end the streak.
The 12-man tag match between Team Teddy and Team Johnny was nothing to write home about. The most shocking incident from the match came when Kofi Kingston, Zack Ryder and R-Truth flipped out of the ring onto their opponents at the same time.
It's moves like this that makes us miss the exciting and shocking moments of the Money in the Bank match at WrestleMania.
Jericho's Impressive Reversal
If ever there was a lock to be a great match it was the one between Chris Jericho and CM Punk at WrestleMania 28.
The most impressive and shocking moment from the match came when Jericho reversed Punk's top-rope frankensteiner attempt and put him in the Walls of Jericho. This was very impressive and was one of the most shocking moments of the night.
The fact that Brodus Clay was involved in WrestleMania and especially in between the WWE Championship and main event was very shocking.
Clay has become a fan favorite since his return but his gimmick is quickly getting stale as he hasn't had a serious feud or done anything significant.
The WWE surprisingly put him in to break up the last two matches of WrestleMania.
The Rock Wins
Since the winner of the match was pretty unpredictable, it would have been shocking if John Cena or The Rock won.
The Rock was able to pull off a huge victory. The match was a long battle and Cena started getting some momentum. He was in the process of giving The Rock a People's Elbow, and Rock got up and delivered a quick Rock Bottom.
No Surprise Returns
The WWE is always good for a few surprises, especially with returning superstars. But at WrestleMania 28, there was not one surprise person who returned.
Before WrestleMania, it was reported by Jamie Penick of MMATorch.com (via The Wrestling Observer), that Lesnar has signed a one-year contract with the WWE and was set to return at WrestleMania 28. Despite all the speculation that Brock Lesnar would be at the event, it never happened.
It was shocking that there wasn't a surprise return and it kept people waiting for that moment where someone would come out.
