Wrestlemania 27

How WWE WrestleMania 27 Cemented Itself into Pro Wrestling History

Bleacher Report Contributor IApril 4, 2011

The WWE's biggest event of the year could easily be labeled mediocre at best and seems to be that Wrestlemania 27 could be the most lackluster one ever produced. 

However, as WWE made a surprise move to put the World Heavyweight Championship in the first match slot, this WrestleMania had accomplished a greater feat then WrestleMania’s past, and as you all know Edge had walked away victorious from the match after a spear.

The Miz retained the biggest prize in the WWE as he defeated Superman himself, John Cena after The WWE Championship match ended in a double count out.

Then The Rock went to the ring to announce that the match had to restart and made it a No Holds Barred match. In the end, The Rock delivered a Rock Bottom on Cena, allowing The Miz to score the pinfall allowing him to retain again.

In addition to these matches, as my fellow writers have recapped (if you missed it I have recapped it for you).  There is one key fact that everyone missed which will sets WrestleMania 27 apart. For the first time in the illustrious history of WrestleMania no major title had changed hands.

Both Edge and The Miz retained their respective titles last night in the only two title matches on the main card.

Until next time Bleachers.
