Wrestlemania XXV was perhaps the most anticipated wrestlemania of my life. After all it was the 25th anniversary, with WWE advertising the show in a big way and also with so many good matches on the line: HHH vs Orton, HBK vs 'Taker, Matt vs Jeff, 25 divas battle royal, MITB ladder match, one would certainly expect a lot from the show.
But as always the case is, when you are expecting a lot you are definitely going to feel disappointed in the end. But Wrestlemania 25 was not only a disappointment, and many times i felt like exploding a huge nuclear bomb right in the middle of my screen.
So, now its time to vent out my anger. And these three matches really pissed me off...a lot:
1. 25 Divas Battle Royal - WWE promoted this match in a big way. They even went to an extent to call the winner of this match will be crowned as Miss Wrestlemania. And who won?? Santino?
I mean really, this was their idea to surprise us? It was not one bit surprising, nor was it funny, in fact, it really showed how much WWE really cares about women's wrestling these days.
2. JBL vs Rey Mysterio - This match lasted for 21 seconds!!! Oh God, and I thought I was watching Wrestlemania.
3. Cena vs Edge vs Big Show - Where is the champ? No, he is back...again!!! Although this match was pretty much ok, but the ending sucked. Now maybe I am biased here, and though I do not hate Cena, I never wanted him to win the title. But he did...AGAIN!!!
Thank god that HBK, Undertaker (hands down, best match of the night, and I hope their feud to continue) and both Hardy brothers saved the night. In their matches only and also HHH vs Orton, I got the feeling that I am watching Wrestlemania.
MITB match was decent with some really awesome moments especially when Shelton jumped off that 20 foot ladder.Christian, Kingston and Kane also did a nice job.
And what about Jericho vs legends? I don't know what to say about this match. At one hand, I think it was good to see these legends who were also part of Wrestlemania One, but then again, they could have made the match perhaps in a different way.
Anyways, Jericho sold the moves really well, Steamboat amazes me the most (man, he took some serious bumps last night), and I hated to see Rourke knocking down Jericho with just one punch. Overall, Wrestlemania 25 was more drama less action.
