WWE WrestleMania 27: Top 5 Most Infuriating Moments
Let's be blunt: last night's WrestleMania was severely underwhelming.
While there were several great moments, many left us wanting for more and wondering what the hell the point was.
My perspective may be slightly different than others because I was at the Georgia Dome, and therefore didn't have the benefit of commentary, but these are the top 5 most infuriating moments for this year's WrestleMania.
5. The Great Khali Fiasco
This was so surprising that nearly everyone in the arena thought that Justin Roberts misspoke when he said that the dark-match was going to be for the US Title.
How could they take a match between two great wrestlers like Daniel Bryan and Sheamus and move it to the dark match before WrestleMania?
And not only that, but how could they then convert that into the annual WrestleMania battle royal?
And who in the blue hell decided that it would be a good idea for the Great Khali to win?
This honestly was a train wreck from the beginning that was a sign of things to come for the rest of the night.
Word had spread around Atlanta Saturday afternoon that Bryan/Sheamus would lead off WrestleMania, which I said would be the right move in an article last week.
But later in the day, many people were speculating that the card had to be reorganized to devote more time to Undertaker-Triple H and Cena-Miz.
Why did we need to see the Undertaker take an hour for every win he has a WrestleMania (that's 19 for those of you scoring at home) to get up the ramp? That combined with limiting the amount of time spent on the truly dreadful Lawler-Cole match could have easily given Sheamus and Bryan a spot on the card.
It's a shame (For Sheamus of course).
4. The Corre Is Dismantled Before Anyone Gets Back From the Bathroom
Something became very apparent when the Corre was introduced: this would be everyone's bathroom break. It was unbelievable how many people actually got up to leave their seats during this match, which is a testament to the great booking and history behind this match (sarcasm my friends).
Explain to me exactly what was accomplished by allowing established stars like Kofi Kingston, the Big Show, Kane and Santino Marella to bury the up-and-coming Corre in less than the amount of time that anyone could take a leak.
It's a damn shame that a talent like Wade Barrett was wasted on a match that wasn't even as long as this paragraph.
3. CM Punk Loses After One RKO
We all know that Randy Orton vs. CM Punk had the potential to be the match that stole the show at this year's WrestleMania.
Guess what: it didn't.
I was shocked to say the least.
In an article last week, I predicted that Punk-Orton was the number one must see match, yet it didn't live up to the hype.
Punk did a great job of working the knee/leg of Orton to make it believable relative to his attack on Raw.
But how does this match end off of one RKO after Punk attempted a move from the top rope?
Answer this question: what exactly does Orton gain from winning?
He now has eliminated the whole Nexus, leaving him with no possible feuds left on Raw, which leads me to believe that he will end up on Smackdown.
If Punk would have won, it could have prolonged the feud with him and Orton, but now it feels like that feud has lost an extreme amount of heat.
2. The Miz vs John Cena Was Rushed
It was 10:45 ET and everyone in the crowd was saying the same thing, "Miz-Cena is not going to get enough time."
Yes, the Undertaker-Triple H match deserved as much time as they wanted, but this match just felt extremely rushed from the beginning.
The most time was dedicated to this feud, which should have lead to it getting the most time at WrestleMania.
Furthermore, after the double-count out (which lead to many people leaving because they thought it was over, which was kind of dumb on their part), the Rock seemingly Rock Bottomed Cena within 10 seconds of the match restarting?
Why was this rushed?
Why was the Rock only given three minutes to end the show?
It appears for once that the WWE tried to fit in too much content, of which 60% was unnecessary.
I understand that WrestleMania is the biggest stage for the WWE, but when Cena-Miz doesn't get the appropriate amount of time because Hornswoggle had to do his best Ice Cube impression, amongst other ridiculous events, it really is infuriating.
1. The Undertaker Improves to 19-0
This may be sacrilegious to the IWC, but the Undertaker should have lost to Triple H.
I honestly do not care for either the Undertaker or Triple H at this point because they are both holding younger superstars down from making the main event.
One thing is a fact though: they had one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history.
What is ridiculous though is that Triple H hits multiple Pedigrees, chair shots, spinebusters though tables, etc. and then even appears to finish the Undertaker off with the Tombstone, yet he loses to the Triangle Choke.
The Undertaker was carried through that match by Triple H.
While Taker had some impressive spots (diving over the top rope, etc.) Triple H showed that he could deliver on the grandest stage and would not be outshone by anyone, including the Undertaker.
What makes this complete bullshit is how can you have the Undertaker not get up after the match, yet have Triple H walk out fine?
Now it appears that this ending can be used to write the Undertaker off of TV again for several months, which I have had enough of.
If you cannot perform a normal schedule, step aside and let others elevate to the top.
How can WWE expect everyone to be excited when the Undertaker leaves every 10 minutes for six months?
Anyway, enough of me complaining.
Let me know what you think the most infuriating moment was from WrestleMania 27 and whether you agree.
