    Kane and Taker's matches more then made up for it.
    Because Kane and Taker was the first really good thing on the show.
    And this Mania was still better than last years.

    On the plus side, Punk and Rock winning totaly ruined my predictions, so at least Sheamus still got the belt.

    My friend sold out a venue down in Brighton running an event for WM, 130 people all in, apparently overall people were disappointed with the first hour but got into the Taker/HHH match and Punk/Jericho matches. The last match had everyone's attention as it got sloppier and stiffer. People were surprised but happy Rock won.

    Honestly, I think that these two have been teased two years in a row. If you recall last year, their U.S. Championship match was dramatically altered.

    While wwe probably has a good reason for cutting the match so short, I was disappointed we didn't see a full match. But I was just as disappointed in this match as I was Edge's, with Alberto Del Rio at last year's WM. I felt like the WHC just wasn't something they wanted to really focus on and it had less to do with the people that were in the match.

    In a way this negates the impact of the Royal Rumble outcome.

    There was no good reason.

    I take it back, i like this theory
    "I legitimately think this booking decision was motivated by WWE's obsession with Twitter. Think about it:

    - They want to TREND and want to start TRENDING as soon as the show begins.

    - So they put the Daniel Bryan match on first and, knowing that Bryan is an internet darling, fuck him over in an infuriatingly dramatic way. Leading to..

    - All the enraged internet nerds tweeting about Bryan and Mania, allowing WWE to boast about immediate TRENDS and get that all important hashtag rolling. "

    hmmm seems to be the general consensus.....

    outside of the Bryan fans, no one seemed to care....I think if any match on a Wrestlemania goes like that, people will be put off regardless of who is involved

    If it was Brodus Clay vs whoever it wouldn't have mattered.

    me too. the look taker, shawn and trips had at the end as they looked back at the ring was priceless. when i was describing it to my onna on the phone, she was almost in tears.

    I think that's where they are going with it as well. Bryan will turn on AJ, blaming her for his loss. And then he'll be more aggressive in his future matches with Shamus and whoever else. It makes sense given how they've been hyping his post victory celebrations. It just had the unfortunate timing of being at Wrestlemania rather than on RAW the next night.

    That's a very positive way of looking at things.
    Another theory is, they knew the internet would be happy because Rock won, so they wanted to balance it out by having Bryan lose so fast.

So they botched the record attempt and made the match meaningless and the title a curtain jerking prop for nothing basically.
