WWE WrestleMania 27: How Will It Rank Compared to Past Wrestlemania's?

John BetschelCorrespondent IIApril 2, 2011

The day is almost upon us, and unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple months you'll know that what I'm talking about is WrestleMania 27.

Perhaps Vince McMahon's greatest creation ever. The grandaddy of 'em all will be held tomorrow in Hotlanta. Now WWE always makes sure that WrestleMania is mounds above everything else that year.

It's basically wrestling's version of the Superbowl, though in a recently written article by "C.I.M." they are talking about removing the "wrestling" from WWE, but that's a whole other subject.

Now I know there is no comparing to the early WrestleMania's with the likes of Andre The Giant and Hulk Hogan, or even the later ones with The Rock and Stone Cold. But how about, say the past four or five WrestleManias, how might it compare to those?

They have one really big, huge match that some people are going to buy the PPV just because of it, and of course I'm talking about HHH vs. The Undertaker.

Some people feel this isn't going to live up to the matches 'Taker had with Shawn Michaels, but I disagree. These two are the best in the business today and this match alone is definitely going to make this WrestleMania stand out, especially if The Game breaks the streak.

There will not be a Money In The Bank match this year for the first time in six years, which I feel is a negative. That was always one of the stand out matches of WrestleMania and for the past few years when WrestleMania would roll around people would always think Money In The Bank.

It would always highlight WrestleMania, however since Vinnie Mac decided to make it into its own PPV, they've decided to take it out and give us matches like Sheamus vs. Danial Bryan and Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio.

This WrestleMania, however, marks Jerry Lawler's first ever WrestleMania match, though it is against Michael Cole. The WWE has done a great job of building this feud, and bringing tons of heat on Michael Cole, perhaps more heat than any other color commentator before him.

Also with Stone Cold as the special guest referee, people are going to tune in to see Lawler demolish Michael Cole which should be great.

Then you have the whole Snooki angle. John Morrison, Trish Stratus, and Snooki vs. Lay Cool and Dolph Ziggler. This match is going to be completely garbage. I am not a fan of Snooki and if you ask me this is going to take away from Morrison and Ziggler.

What they should've done is split it into two separate matches Morrison vs. Ziggler then Lay Cool vs. Trish and Snooki. Because I guarantee no one is thinking, "Oh, I can't wait to see Morrison face Ziggler," they are saying "Oh, I can't wait to see Snooki get into the ring."

C.M Punk vs. Randy Orton should be good, they've definitely built this up to be a WrestleMania quality match, taking it all the way back to two years ago at Unforgiven when Orton punted Punk in the skull making him forfeit his World Title.

One thing they didn't mention though is when Punk was doing color commentary he had mentioned that there was a superstar in the back that had done him wrong, that that person knew who they were, that he never forgets and he would get back at that superstar when the time is right.

At first we thought this was John Cena, but with Punk recently coming out and bringing up the whole thing at Unforgiven we now know it was Orton.

The other main event matches including Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World title, and John Cena vs. The Miz for the WWE title are okay, The Rock is what really adds a lot of growth to the Cena/Miz match though.

Compared to past WrestleMania main events though they don't really shine but mainly because the superstars who competed in those matches such as Kurt Angle, Batista, Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels are either retired, or left for TNA.

So all-in-all this is shaping up to be an decent Wrestlemania, will it be as good as some of the recent past WrestleMania's? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
