Brock Lensar and The Undertaker
Of all the main event matches at WrestleMania, I'm looking forward to this one the least. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a huge fan of both individuals and bet that the match will still be excellent, but the build thus far has been a major disappointment. This segment didn't help matters, as the long, dragged-out entrance of 'Taker resulted in nothing after Lesnar escaped the beating. Lesnar has very little heat on him right now, and saving that for the go-home show might be too little, too late.
Cody Rhodes vs. Fandango
I can rant for days on why Cody and Goldust deserve to be in the WWE Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania 30 over Los Matadores, but I'll reserve judgement until I see what happens in the Battle Royal between them. As far as this match goes, it was pointless. The same can be said for Fandango's match with Goldust on SmackDown. The Rhodes brothers deserve much better than this trash.
Sin Cara vs. Damien Sandow
What's worse than Sandow losing to Cara in under a minute? Doing it twice in one week! I didn't even mind the Scooby Doo appearance on Raw (I am a Scooby Doo fan, after all), but this match killed any hope I possibly had for Sandow. The win did little to nothing to benefit Cara, and Sandow is now perceived as an enhancement talent, as if he hasn't been one for the last few months. What a shame.
Big Show vs. Titus O'Neil
This was the same exact match we saw on WWE Main Event last week, and it wasn't any better this time around. If anything, it was worse. It was a complete squash for Show that didn't do anything for him whatsoever. Can someone please remind me what the whole point was of breaking The Prime Time Players up in the first place?
Los Matadores vs. Curtis Axel and Ryback
The match didn't last a mere minute before it ended after interference from The Shield at ringside. Apparently, this win over Axel and Ryback, along with their countless other wins over 3MB, earned Los Matadores a Tag title match at 'Mania. I still think the only reason they're in the match is because their uncle/father is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, but that doesn't make this match any less of a joke.
Mark Henry vs. The Miz
The silence during this match was mind-blowing. Fans couldn't care less about either guy right now, and their participation in the Battle Royal at WrestleMania means very little. Both Henry and Miz will be in need of some major direction and character development post-'Mania.
