WrestleMania 25 hits the roof with a great match between HBK and The Undertaker,
This review is from: Wrestlemania 25 with Mini Encyclopedia [DVD]  (DVD)
WWE Championship Match ****
Triple H vs. Randy Orton
A great main event between Orton and HHH, it was a very personal match that these two had at WrestleMania 25. Loved the the finish where HHH kicked Randy Orton in the head and hit the Pedigree to retain the WWE Title.
Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship ***
Edge vs. John Cena vs. Big Show
Average Triple Threat match between Cena, Big Show and Edge, I was really mixed about this match but it did have a kinda predictable winner. Would have to say that I was really impressed with the finish where Cena hoisted Show and Edge onto his shoulders where Cena hit the Attitude Adjustment on both men for the victory.
Intercontinental Championship Match *
JBL vs. Rey Mysterio
A match that would have been great to see as Mysterio and JBL always put on a good match, but this match was a waste. It was good to see Mysterio capturing the Intercontinental Championship, with JBL quitting the WWE.
Extreme Rules Match ****
Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy
It was good to see brother vs brother in perhaps their best one on one match with the stipulation of extreme rules. Both of the Hardy Boyz were constantly using weapons to disown one and other, with Jeff putting Matt through a set of tables which was awesome. Kinda hated the ending where Jeff leapt off a ladder and missed his brother Matt, to where Matt took the opportunity to use a steel chair and perform the Twist of Fate with the steel chair on his brother Jeff, to where Matt picked up the victory in a very extreme match up.
Lumberjack Match to Unify the Tag Team Championship ***
Carlito & Primo vs. The Miz & John Morrison
Really enjoyed this tag team match which should of been on the match card for WrestleMania 25. We did have some very good tag team action where Carlito&Primo became the first ever Unified Tag Team Champions.
Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker *****
Match of the night and the reason for watching this WrestleMania. Both Shawn Michaels and Undertaker put on a match that nearly everyone is talking about as it was just unbelieveable. Shawn Michaels performance in this match was very impressive and he did kick out of a tombstone which shocked the audience, but he couldn't avoid the second tombstone which led the Undertaker to going 17-0 at WrestleMania.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match ***
Finlay vs. Christian vs. CM Punk vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Montel Vontavious Porter
Not the best Money in the Bank Ladder Match but it did have some good spots, especially Shelton Benjamin doing a huge dive off a tall ladder onto the Money in the Bank competitors. The finish was alright I guess which led to CM Punk winning his second Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
25-Diva Battle Royal *
A really bad divas match with no entrances performed, and the match just got quickly underway, with Santina winning this battle royal and its a match that can be easily forgotten, but it was great to see the divas as always.
Handicap Match ***
Chris Jericho vs. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat & Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka (w/ Ric Flair)
A pretty decent match with Chris Jericho having a great fight with Ricky Steamboat, Snuka and Piper were the weaker links in this match. Jericho and Steamboat did put on a great fight with Jericho picking up the victory, but Jericho was knocked out by Mickey Rourke.
