WrestleMania 27: The Biggest WrestleMania of All Time?

Micheal RobinsonSenior Analyst IIMarch 26, 2011

Several writers and wrestling fans out there, maybe even including yourself are feeling doubts about this year's Wrestlemania.

Some people even go to the lengths of saying they aren't going to order it, which I don't believe, while others claim that it's going to be a bad event.

I'll admit, I do think the card is a little bleak this year compared to past events, but I do have a feeling that when the smoke and the lights clear and Monday morning comes the night after WrestleMania, people will be talking good things about the event.

You want to talk about a bad WrestleMania?  Go look at highlights from WrestleMania XI, where a football player named Lawrence Taylor beat Bam Bam Bigelow in the main event with a clothesline off the top rope in front of 16,000 people.

This year's WrestleMania is different from past WrestleManias in many ways.

Firstly, there is no Money In The Bank match this year.  Even with the Money In The Bank pay per view last year, they still held the match at WrestleMania XXVI, but this year, they decided to go a different route.

Because of this, John Morrison, has to wrestle in a mixed tag team gimmick match with Jersey Shore's Snooki in it, just a horrible way to use an amazing talent.   However, later this year, he better be holding that briefcase.

Moving along here, second, and most important, Shawn Michaels has left the building.

Mr. WrestleMania has retired and will be inducted the night before into the Hall of Fame, in a first ballot type of induction.

Therefore, Triple H, his buddy, will try to do what Shawn Michaels couldn't, and defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania.  The match is also going to be No Holds Barred.

How many of you think Triple H will win?  Do you feel any suspense at all?  I don't.  The only time I thought The Undertaker was going to lose is when he faced Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 25, and he kicked out of the Last Ride and Tombstone Piledriver.

The big problem I have with this match is the fact that WWE seems to be attempting to erase all memory of ten years prior, when Triple H already tried to break the streak and couldn't even do it with a sledgehammer.  They are acting like we are talking about Chris Benoit, why can't you mention that this is Triple H's second attempt?

Word has it, that the match with Triple H and Undertaker, will be closing the show down, leaving the Championship matches to take place earlier in the night.

I think that Edge and Alberto Del Rio will take place within the first hour of the event. I'll admit, Del Rio has grown on me a bit and I am actually looking forward to this match.  I just hope he doesn't beat Edge for the Championship.  Anyone else wish that Christian was involved?  I know I do.  Hey, there is still time.

I just wish Del Rio would get some different ring attire, aside from those gold Depends he wears now. Maybe he can rent some new ring attire, when WWE is out finding another car rental for him to drive for a night.  But hey, you already know that.

Then you have the WWE Championship match.  The drama building around this match grows every week and it is The Miz, not John Cena, not The Rock, that needs this match to be successful.  This young man has already proved a lot of people wrong and this is the biggest match of his career.  No disrespect meant towards John Cena and his fellow CeNation, but it is going to be very hard to steal the show when he is wrestling Cena.

What role, if any, will The Rock play in this match?  We should find out soon, but I don't think he'll play a role in the outcome.

I don't even want to talk about the Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler match.  It is quite obvious that Lawler is going to destroy him.  I just hope that Lawler's WrestleMania moment doesn't take longer than five minutes.

However, in two or three of those minutes, I want everyone in and around that ring breathing to be hit by a Stone Cold Stunner.

This will be the second straight WrestleMania that Randy Orton hasn't been involved in a championship match, as he takes on CM Punk.

Orton, has eliminated each member of the New Nexus one by one leading up to this match, so it seems as if it will be just Orton and Punk without any interference. Actually, come to think of it, I hope that Nexus stays gone.  I don't know what's worse right now, the New Nexus, or The Corrrre, how many R's are in there?

If it is done properly, I do think this match will be the most talked the next day.  The way I want it to end, is Orton slipping out of GTS and hitting the RKO, I am sure they are working on that ending in an empty arena as we speak.

Then you have Cody Rhodes taking on Rey Mysterio.  I am not that excited about this match, but I do like how they are playing on Rhodes being injured by Mysterio's 619, since he has injured so many wrestlers for real in the past.  I am sure that is being joked around about in the locker room, but I bet The Undertaker isn't laughing.

I hope they use this match to help build Cody Rhodes' future in the company, rather than help an already established superstar like Rey Mysterio.  I know he is a kid's favorite WWE, but you can't let him win every WrestleMania match.  Since losing his first two WrestleMania's at 19 and 20, Mysterio hasn't lost. 

Also, Sheamus will be defending his newly won US Championship against Daniel Bryan, really?

Ultimately, this night is surrounded by the return of The Rock.  Perhaps one of the greatest superstars in WWE history will be coming back from a seven year hiatus to host WrestleMania.  Now, I am going to have a little bit of a bias opinion on this, since he is one of my favorites, and I humbly believe he is the greatest star to ever step foot in a WWE ring.  

There is no telling what the Rock will do in Atlanta on the night of WrestleMania 27, but I am sure he will entertain us all.

When you look at WrestleMania 27 as a whole, I can understand where many wrestling fans believe the show isn't going to be that good.  However, I would like to give it a chance before I judge it.

Do I think it is going to be the greatest WrestleMania of all-time like it has been dubbed by WWE commentary?  No.  But, will I be satisfied the next day, when I leave my ringside seat at the Georgia Dome?  I believe so.

Don't count this WrestleMania out, it may fool you at first site, but when the time comes, you may think differently.
