I saw it with friends, and we had a pool as well. I won with 7-2 despite betting against Undertaker again. I've bet against Undertaker at least 3 times, but obviously I lost every time. My other lost was betting for Daniel Bryan.
Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan - massive duh. I declared Daniel Bryan's career in WWE over, as no matter what happens other than a true monster push, he will never be taken seriously again.
Randy Orton vs. Kane - meh. Juts a match. Kane winning clean was a surprise.
Divas' match - was good for a divas' match. Maria's perfect white pants were ruined by Eve's bronzer. Not sure if Maria was really hurt, but a side bear hug was lame by Beth on Maria.
Triple H vs. Undertaker - meh. Wasn't a good match, and only told a decent story. In the end, Shawn Michaels was there to be a red herring. Although he did prevent Triple H from killing Undertaker with a sledge shot to the head with full force when Taker was down and out. The story was basically Taker trained and endured, and Triple H did ridiculous number of chair shots, with Shawn begging Triple H not to do it, and taking away the sledge before literally, the killing blow. Taker slowly fought back and shut down Triple H. Triple H with a defiant crotch chop before eating sledge to face, and then Tombstone to finish. Not sure if kayfabe was broken or not when Taker and Shawn helped Triple H went to the back.
GM match - decent match, but ending was terrible. Zack Ryder is apparently the only other person that Vince hates other than Daniel Bryan. He totally fell for Eve again, and her getting in the ring when he was about to do his Woo Woo Woo boot caused him to eat the Skull Crushing Finale. And then she low blowed him with Team Teddy watching. Just send Zack and Daniel off into the sunset.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho - very very nice. 3.5 to 4 stars. Johnny Ace told Punk that if he was DQed, title will switch hands. Lots of good solid wrestling from both. Ending sequence was very nice, as they kept reversing submission holds until Punk was able to prevent Jericho from breaking Anaconda Vice. I am not sure if this feud is over or not, but I think they should get (Christan style) ONE MORE MATCH.
John Cena vs. the Rock - decent match, but nothing special. I picked Rock because frankly, Cena hasn't won as often lately, and certainly not at last WM. I thought the story would be better and more interesting if Rock won. I thought Cena showed signs/tells of him losing. The most telling is when Cena went for his People's Elbow, and he kind of did it halfheartedly with a sad smirk on his face, as if he was pouting or if he was resigned to the fact that he (Cena) has been the man, but lost to the part-timer. But it's not just any part timer, it's the Rock. The man who brought WWE back into the mainstream. As popular as Austin is, I think the Rock made WWE cool again back in those years. Cool enough that other celebrities wanted to hang with WWE.
Overall, this was a terrible WM. Punk vs. Jericho was great. Cena vs. Rock was interesting. Triple H vs. Undertaker was ultimately boring and predictable. Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan was an uttery travesty. As others have said already, WWE could have easily cut down on promos, commercials, and other nonsense, and made that match 15 minutes. No Brock, who I heard from friends was going to show. Not a big deal I guess, and it would have stolen the headlines.
He's pretty much lost his legitimacy for the next few months, just like that one time CM Punk met the Undertaker.
You just have to be cool about it...
Well that could be possible. Eve's face was caked in way too much makeup. But I don't recall her face being in Maria's ass, and you'd think I'd remember something like that.Originally Posted by Dave H
The spot did look reddish at times, I thought. so unless Maria was having a really serious problem, maybe it was makeup. And it might have been off to the side. We need internet CSI on this case.
"Family Guy jumped the shark when i stopped getting high every time i watched it. " - Alex
It was Eve's make-up on Menounos' pants, I noticed it right after the "stink face" or what ever Kelly Kelly's move is that they did together.
I actually liked every other match, other than the tag team match, Miz continues his undefeated streak. The only match that I was worried about that wouldn't live up to it's potential was the C.M. Punk vs. Chris Jericho. I was worried that the whole "Lose your temper and get DQ, lost the belt" would really come into play but it seemed like they did that only for the first five minutes then were able to have a great match.
I honestly didn't like the John Cena vs. The Rock match. And yes, I will admit that I'm a John Cena fan, down since day one. The Rock's endurance was really bad, his ring rust really showed and the end of the match wasn't that exciting. There were actually a few good moves that he did that impressed me though. I'm surprised they made John Cena lose for a whole year to The Rock. Last year at Wrestlemania 27 he got pinned after a Rock Bottom, Survivor Series The Rock embarrassed him by making him come back to the ring to do a Rock Bottom and finally tonight by losing to another Rock Bottom that wasn't that epic, it felt very rushed and weak.
RIP Daniel Bryan's title reign...
