This review is from: Wwe: Wrestlemania 25 [DVD] (DVD)
WWE Wrestlemania 25 took place on Sunday, April 5th, 2009 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas in front of 72,744 fans.
I loved what the WWE did as there Pre-Mania video package for this particular year asking the WWE Superstars what they liked about Wrestlemania's past.
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
Yes im not a CM Punk fan. But this one is possible the worst money in the bank to the date of the release. It was abit slow and it just didnt flow as well as much as some of the other matches, I suppose it couldve been worse.
25-Diva Battle Royal to Determine the First Ever Miss WrestleMania
Basically this was rubbish, a number of reason 1. none of the divas got announced. 2. The returning Divas didnt really get a mention and to be honest you wouldnt even know they returned. 3. the camera was too far out to actually see alot of the action close up. This is because of the twist. I HATE THIS MATCH, SKIP IT.
3 on 1 Handicap Match
Chris Jericho vs. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat & Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka (w/ Ric Flair)
My hat, if i wore one, goes off to Ricky Steamboat here, he looked great in the match and in good shape for his age. Basically this was Jericho turning his back on the legends and Mickey Rourke for not giving up the spotlight to younger guys. Really its not that much of bad match, this is the match were this wrestlemania starts to turn around.
Extreme Rules Match
Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy
I really enjoyed this match. The build up with Matt being the bad guy giving a promo for the match is brilliant. At 13:13 this has some extreme moves with ladders chairs and tables and till this point the match of the night so far.
Intercontinental Championship Match
JBL vs. Rey Mysterio
JBL says he'll shock the WWE universe, and he did. The match, if you can call it that. finished before it started but JBL did shock the wwe universe.
Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker
BEST MATCH EVER, must see
Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Edge vs. John Cena vs. Big Show
By this point the crowd was pretty much dead because of the previous match.
Introduction of the 2009 WWE Hall of Fame Inductees Pretty good, just didnt like Stone Cold stealing the spotlight, Id of soon it didnt happen like that and all of them got treated the same. Just my feelings.
WWE Championship Match
Triple H vs. Randy Orton
Still the crowd was abit dead here.This match was a major dissapointment and it just ended out of no where.
