5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular, 25 July 2005
This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 21 [DVD] (DVD)
There were a lot less matches at this year's Wrestlemania than last year (12 matches at Wrestlemania 20 , only 8 at this event), which I thought was surprising. However, this doesn't manage to lower the quality of the event.
The card is started with a match between then-Tag Team Champs Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero (wasn't this guy main-eventing this PPV last year?). It's a good match, and just what you'd expect from these two. This was the start of the feud between the two.
The Money In The Bank Ladder Match is next (not sure why this is only match #2). You can't go wrong when you stick six Raw superstars and a ladder (actually, quite a few ladders) in a ring together. High spots everywhere. Too many to mention.
The first of two Interpromotional matches follows, when Randy Orton takes on The Undertaker. After watching this a second time, I realised that this was better than I thought. Orton's counter of the Chokeslam into an RKO is impressive.
The fun stops for a bit though, when Trish Stratus defends the Women's Title against Raw Diva Search Winner, Christy Hemme. Nobody expected this to be brilliant, and they were right. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't awful, but the WWE probably shouldn't have put someone with little wrestling ability in a title match at Wrestlemania. Trish has some 'unique ring attire' as JR put it.
Kurt Angle VS. Shawn Michaels? That sounds like a good match for Wrestlemania. Though it starts out a little slow, this match turns into the kind of match you would expect when you put two stars like Angle and Michaels in a match together. Well done to both of them.
After this great display of wrestling, we get...a Sumo Match?? All righty. Former pro sumo wrestler Akebono and the Big Show collide (I mean that literally) on the grand stage. This match was pretty pointless, but seeing Show in a sumo outfit was kinda funny.
The two main events are next. First, JBL defends his WWE Title against John Cena in a disappointinlgy average match. There jsut seemed to be something missing from this match. JBL had held the gold for over 9 months at this point, and the outcome should have felt more important.
The last match of the night is the World Heavyweight Title match between former Evolution buddies, Triple H and Batista. For the second time, Triple H is played to the ring by Motorhead. Both times, they seem to have brought him the same luck... Anyway, the match was better than expected, with HHH even getting busted open during it. A decent finish to a decent Wrestlemania.
This is isn't an event that you should get for just one match. With the exceptions of the Sumo Match, the Women's Title match and the WWE Championship match, all the matches range from pretty good to brilliant. If you haven't got it just now, you probably won't regret it if you buy it now.
