Wrestlemania: You Can't Polish a Turd

dav brenContributor IMarch 12, 2009

It's a well-known saying and it's true: you can't polish a turd, no matter how hard you try, and Vince McMahon likes to try HARD!

For a start, Wrestlemania 25 isn't the 25th anniversary. Does it really matter? No, but if Vince is gonna claim that this is the biggest Wrestlemania of all time, where's the substance? It's all fur coat and no knickers!

HHH vs. Orton, how many times have we seen this, including twice at No Mercy 2007. It's been done to death, and it doesn't need doing again, especially now.

Edge vs. Big Show vs. Cena, well this is really about Cena and Edge. The Big Show is not a main event player, certainly not at this level. The main event could and should be Edge vs. Orton and the HHH-Cena rematch should have being saved for here.

The diva battle royal is a great idea, with old stars like Lita and Torrie Wilson, BUT really who cares!!! It's a good idea, but should have been old male stars: Goldberg, Dusty Rhodes, Million Dollar Man, SID, etc.

There are two matches worth watching. Shawn Michaels as usual will steal the show, and Matt vs. Jeff has appeal for me, but if Flair returns, he'll ruin last year's show stealing performance by HBK.

For weeks WWE have being teasing a big match for Jericho at Wrestlemania with someone defending the honour of the legends, who now will also include Koko B. Ware.

Who will it be: Hogan, Austin, Piper? I'd settle for Koko himself over a retired Ric Flair.

Now add to this a MITB match and JBL defending his IC title, and you have the card for the BIGGEST wrestling card and pay-per-view ever and it stinks.

Now this won't stop Vince, who is armed with TV space, Jim Ross, and lots of cash, he'll promote this like it was Tyson vs. Ali but you can't polish a turd...
