WrestleMania 25 results

Ok sorry this is later than i said it would be (even though i bet still no one cares) but here are the results along with my oppinion of the matches for WrestleMania.

Carlito and Primo Colon defeated Miz and Morrison This match was not actually on WrestleMania it was a pre show match for the people in Houston so i cant rate it or tell you about it because i didnt see it.
C.M Punk defeated Mark Henry, Finlay, Christian, Kofi Kingston, MVP, Kane, and Shelton Benjamin in the Money In The Bank ladder match Match starts with the ring being cleared exceot for the two big guys Mark Henry and Kane and they slugg it out for a couple seconds. Then it seems like everyone jumped over the top rope onto the other competitors, only to be finished with Shelton Benjamin doing a swanton off the top of like a 15-20 foot ladder. Then back in the ring finlay sets up a ladder only to have Kofi Kingston jumo through it and kick Finlay in the face. Shelton does a good powerbomb to MVP over the top rope onto Mark Henry. Then Christian gets choked slammed off of the top of a ladder by Kane who then gets kicked by C.M Punk off of the ladder and we have our first back to back winner. Good match with lots of action and a good way to start the show. MATCH RATING: 8
Santina Marella wins 25 diva battle royal Match started after an overly long Kid Rock performance. There was no entrance so you didnt really know who was in the match. It didnt really go all that well after that either. The match went really fast and then its santino marella (santina) winning the battle royal. MATCH RATING: 4
Chris Jericho defeated Rowdy Roddy Piper Jimmy Snuka and Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat Match started off slow with Jericho facing the 185 year old Jimmy Snuka who was quickly eliminated afeter taping out to the walls of jericho. Then it was Piper and Jericho and piper got beaten quickly. Wich left it down to Jericho and Steamboat who was actually very good in this match. Steamboat helped make this match watchable. After the match Jericho called in Mickey Rourke and Rourke punched Jericho in the face and knocked him out of the ring. Overall it was pretty decent a match thanks to Steamboat. MATCH RATING: 7
Matt Hardy defeated Jeff Hardy in an extreme rules match Match started off pretty good with jeff beating down Matt in the beginning. Then later on in the match Jeff splashes Matt through two tables. Then Jeff sets up two ladders in the ring and leap frogs over one of them off of the other and mises a leg drop onto Matt. This set up Matts twist of fate while Jeffs head was in a chair. Decent match that served its point wouldnt have been as good if it was a regular match. MATCH RATING: 7.5
Rey Mesterio defeated JBL for the intercontinental title This match was deffinatlly pointless JBL trash talks Rey about how this was going to be the most dominant victory in wrestlemania history, then hits rey with a boot to the face. After that the bell rings Rey hits JBL with a kick and then a 619 and wins the match in 21 seconds. Just plain dumb instead of this they could have extend a match like the divas battle royal and maybe made that better. MATCH RATING 3
The Undertaker defeated Shawn Michaels Match started off really good and just continued that way through out. Match starts with HBK hiting and running. Then about half way through the match rolls to the outside. Shawn goes up top for a moonsault and the undertaker swats him away. The Undertaker then goes into the ring and does his over the top rope move he always does at wrestlemania and at this point shawn pulls a camera man in the way and the undertaker crashes into him. Then there were tons of false finishes including a chokeslam a last ride powerbomb a tombstone and two superkicks. Then after over a half hour of wrestling between two of the oldest guys in the company Shawn goes for a moonsault but is caught by the undertaker and is tombstoned and the Undertaker inproves to 17-0. MATCH RATING 10
John Cena defeated Big Show and Edge for the world heavey weight title Match started off with the big show getting the upper hand to begin with but it eventually turned into all equal. Match has a good spot were edge spears the big show after jumping off of the ring steps and sent the big show through the baracede. Then John Cena shows soem verry impressive strength when he lifts the big show and edge together which is over 700lbs! Then he slammed the big show then slams edge and pins the bigh show for the win. MATCH RATING 8
HHH defeated Randy Orton to retain the wwe title Match started off very back and forth. Then Randy Orton starts to get the better of hhh for like 5 to 10 minutes. Eventually HHH fights back but not before getting hit with an rko and kicked out ofter a 2.99 count ( as the wrestling reporters say). Then HHH hits the pedigree for the 1, 2, 3 and gets his first wrestlemania win in 6 years. MATCH RATING 8.5
Overall I gave this years wrestlemania a 56/80 which is a 70. no t a bad grade but for the 25th anniversary of wrestlmania it could have been much better. I still think it was good mastly for the Undertaker Shawn Michaels match and the two title matches. So that was WrestleMania next is Backlash from my home state of rhode island providence rhode island to be exact. Maybe ill make predictions for that pay per view to make up for my horrible wrestlemania picks. Maybe not we will have to see how it looks but i'll be back some time soon.

WrestleMania 25

This sunday as many of you probablly don't know (or care) is WrestleMania 25. I am very much looking forward to WrestleMania this year. Not quite as much as last year but last year i was in attendance wich made it special. Ok here are my pics for this years WrestlMania.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Christian vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Mark Henry vs. Kane vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. MVP vs. Finlay vs. C.M Punk. I think this match won't be any where near as good as the previous four but it looks like it could have its moments. I feel booking Mark Henry for this match was a bad idea because he is like 350 lbs. and looks like 500. But he could surprise me and be a good fit with his power. I like having Kofi Kingston in the match because he adds that High flying aspect to it. Then theres Shelton Benjamin the guy who is always the MVP of the match. Every year he is in it and every year he is the best. However i feel Christian should win this match but since Vince McMahon isn't the biggetst fan of his i don't think he will win. WINNER: MVP.
JBL vs. Rey Mysterio for the intercontinental title. This match seems like it will be pretty good. Mysterio is that high flyer while JBL is the ground and puond kind of guy. Seing as how its in Houston and JBL is from Houston im thinking Rey won't win. Especially since JBL says he wants to do something never before seen and there are rumors going around that he will retire, and no one has ever retired in there home state as intercontinental champion. WINNER: JBL.
John Morrison and the Miz vs. Carlito and Primo Colon for both the world and wwe tag team titles. I'm not going to lie i havnt been following this story line too much beacause it hasn't really been on t.v all that much. All I know is that Miz and Morrison have been hyped as the favorites in this match so it seems like the best way to go. WINNERS: Miz and Morrison.
25 DIva Battle Royal to crown Miss WrestleMania. This match is supposed to include all the current divas(20) and past divas. This seems to be and obvious pick (if your a fan). WINNER: Trish Stratus.
Chris Jericho vs. Rowdey Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka,and Rick the Dragon Steamboat. This match seems like it will be no good. As good as Chris Jericho is at carrying a match theres no way he could carry this one. The only Legend who will give him any help is Steamboat. Of course the other two have the hugest guts ive ever seen and Snuka is like 85 and Piper has had bith his hips replaced. Ric Flair is going to be in there corner so he will get involved somehow. Also the original planed opponint for Chris Jericho Micky Rourke will be in attendance and he will get involved somehow. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Stone Cold Steve Austin get involved somehow since he will be there because he is getting inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year. WINNERS: Legends.
Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker. This match is the one I'm lookin forward to the most . Both men are synonimous with WrestleMania. The Undertaker is Undefeated and Shawn Michaels is known as Mr. WrestleMania sbecause he always has the best match whether win or lose. The hype leading up to this match has been great. They have really done a good job with there promos. But i feel they have been letting Shawn get the better of The Undertaker a little too much to have him win. WINNER: The Undertaker.
Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy in an Extreme Rules Match. I feel making this an extreme rules match was a smart move seeing as Jeff is decent but Matt is not, and theres no way Jeff could Carry Mat through a good match without some stipulation. I expect this match to be a brutal match with a lot of high spots. I don't expect this match to be to long as if it is it could get old fast. WINNER: Jeff Hardy.
John Cena vs. Edge vs. Big Show for the World Heavy Weight title. This match has potential as lomg as they don't make it Big Show dominating the other two because he's 7'2" 500lbs. i don't think they will but if they do it will be a boring match. In my persinal oppinion i feel taking the Big Show out of the match for most of it would be a good idea because Edge and Cena couls have a good match on there own. In fact i feel the WWE is going to pick that rivalry back up after Mania. WINNER Jogn Cena.
HHH vs. Randy Orton for the WWE title. This match has been another one of the well hyped matches. Orton has gotten the better of HHH the past couple of weeks but I feel like this won't be the occasion where it will mean the person taking th ebeating will win. Plus Orton has been pushed as that guy the fans just absolutlly can't stand, the guy people pay to see get the crap kicked out of him. The only way to make that hatred stronger wich i feel WWE wants is to give Orton the title. The only yhing is if Orton wins that means HHH hasn't won at WrestleMania in 5 years. That would be the longetst drought ever for a main eventer I think, and I don't think Vince would do that to his son in-law, actually i do think he would do that. WINNER Randy Orton.
So thats my pick for this years WrestleMania even though most of you don't care. I'm sure you still don't care but if by some how your interseed in who wins and you didn't watch it I will be posting the winners with a preview of the match and my own ranking of the match on a 1-10 basis either Monday right after Mania but if i can't i will deffinatlly do it on Tuesday. If by somehow you people watch it i hope you enjoy it because I'm guessin i will unless it really is just awful(but Mania usually isn't).
