Winner: WrestleMania 28
With only 2012 only halfway over, WWE can proudly boast that they’ve put on three excellent pay-per-views: two very good ones and only one rancid stinker.
Royal Rumble featured some great special appearances from the likes of Road Dogg, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Kharma. Elimination Chamber had fans pulled in with Santino’s performance and the incendiary start to CM Punk and Chris Jericho’s feud.
Extreme Rules delivered high-quality entertainment as well.
It seems like the easy out to pick the biggest show of the year, but even with its blemishes, WrestleMania is 2012’s best show so far.
As sour a taste as the World Heavyweight Championship 18 second debacle and the Brodus Clay padded butt dance left in fans’ mouths, the big names, the stirring spectacle and compelling wrestling puts WWE premier show on top.
Jericho and Punk did their best to steal the show with an emotional fight. Triple H and Undertaker kept both Undertaker’s undefeated streak and his streak of classic WrestleMania matches alive.
A gassed Rock and unnecessary prematch concert didn’t stop the Once in a Lifetime match from being a climactic, fitting end to the night.
