This review is from: WWE - WrestleMania XIX - March 30, 2003 [DVD] (DVD)
As usual it got alot of hype but I really don't think this was anything really special. Most of the matches were pretty standard fare with many of them having very little heat to help us care. The Prime example of this was the HHH v Booker T match. 2 years ago, any HHH match was a dead cert but those days are gone and I just don't feel that anyone really thought Booker would win this or would have cared if he had. I'm yet to be convinced of this 2 belt idea as it seems to have cheapened both of them but especially the old WCW strap.
One exception here was the Lesnar v Angle match which was amazing considering Angles condition and the fact that the WWE debut of the Lesnar shooting star press nearly killed him! The other was the Vince v Hogan bout which was special not because of the match (although it was pretty ace) but because it mattered. It had a great build up and really did feel like 20 years in the making.
A reasonable PPV but certainly not worthy of The Big One.
Roll on Wrestlemania XX and fingers crossed, maybe Bret will show his face this year.
