This review is from: WWE Wrestlemania XXII (3 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
This was a good WrestleMania and had some fantastic matches and two disappointments but the extras are just amazing.
Big Show & Kane vs Chris Masters & Carlito
Great opener with Masters and Carlito screwing it up for each other. Kane gets masterlocked but Big Show and Kane reign supreme though and, in the end, win.
Carlito and Chris Masters then start arguing, possibly starting up a feud between the two
Backstage Interview: Todd Gisham with Mean Gene Okerlund. Get interrupted by Randy ORton and then Orton gets interrupted by injured Batista and Batista puts SmackDown 'on notice'.
Money In The Bank Ladder Match - Matt Hardy vs Shelton Benjamin vs Finlay vs Rob Van Dam vs Lashley vs Ric Flair
Brilliant match with a superplex of top of ladder on Ric Flair, a legdrop from Matt Hardy off of a ladder and a fight between three guys on top of two ladders and a Five-Star Frogsplash off a ladder aswell. Brill match. Van Dam gets the briefcase though
Backstage Interview - Shawn Michaels. Josh Mathews interviews Shawn Michaels and Michaels says he is going to make it ugly with Mr McMahon.
JBL vs Chris Benoit(c) - United States Championship.
Great physical matchup with alot of submissions and alot of reversals. In the end JBL cheats to win as per normal.
Backstage - Booker T bumps into the freaks (Snitsky, Goldust, Ted DiBiase, Fabolous Moolah and Paul Birchill)
Edge vs Mick Foley - HARDCORE MATCH
Trash Cans. Map tacks. Chairs. Cookie Trays. Flaming Tables. Barbed Wire wrapped baseball bats. And of course, Mr Socko!!!!! 10000000000000/10 wot a match blod. blood. blood. i loved it. not fr the faint hearted. this is what makes it a 15 rating. best hadcore match ever at WrestleMania.
Booker T and Sharmell vs The Boogeyman
rubbish match. this is disappointment no1 (1 out of 2). only gd thing is the worms other wise it was a 3 minute waste of space. only funny bit is where booker and sharmell get scared out of their skin when bookers fireworks go off. skip it please.
Trish Stratus(c) vs Mickie JAmes - Women's Championship
Good match for a women's match but still not great. the crowd chants for the psycho mickie and she wins.
Undertaker vs MArk HEnry - Casket Match
The Undertaker, master of the casket and of WrestleMania. Good running dive over top rope by take and amazing last ride and tombstone piledriver by the taker. quite predictable but still good match. Mark Henry R.I.P. lol. taker is my favourite wrestler so i didn't complain but it was quite short. 14-0 now. Absolutely unbelievable.
Mr McMahon vs HBK
fantastic match. tables, ladders, chairs and a bin!!! wer used and spirit squad interfered. shane o'mac get cuffed and gets beaten the crap out of lol with his own cane lol. brilliant match and one of hbk's finest.
Rey Mysterio vs Kurt Angle(c) vs Randy Orton - World HEavywieght Championship
Way too long entrance for Rey. Quite prdictable and a bit short. rey and randy both tapped out but ref didn't see either and Orton finlly get an RKO done without it being reversed for once. Angleslam he reversed. Fast paced action. Rey wins for Eddie though.
Torrie Wilson vs Candice Michelle - Playboy Pillow Fight.
My two favourite divas in a pillow fight (omg!) sadly it sucked. no pillows used and just a stinkfac from torrie won it. disappointment two of the evening. still if you want sexy women here is your chance lol.
SEXYNESS: 10000000000/10 ACTUAL MATCH: 0/10
Triple H vs John Cena(c) - WWE Championship
Great entrances. Once in a lifetime atmosphere!!! Amazing atmosphere. Crowd rooted for HHH. I rooted for HHH. Wrong Man won. But intriguing DX crotch chop and 'You Can't See Me'. Ref got knocked out (a double low blow - ref and cena). HHH tried to use the sledgehammer and kickeed out of F-U. Cena locked the STFU twice and finally succeeded.
Great PPV and worth watching any day o the week.
