NIGHT OF SURPRISES,SHOCKS AND SENSATION.
on 8 April 2014
After too many years of wrestlemania just not quite delivering as it should,it proves it does still have it.
This one starts of with the host HULK HOGAN,a slightly confused one,forgetting where he is. He is soon joined by Steve Austin,then The Rock. It's a great way to open the show,and makes a change from the usual song praising America,usually oversung by someone few people outside America care about. But this gathering of arguably the top 3 wrestling stars ever was quite a sight.
This said,it did go on for a fair while and it took about 40 minutes before any wrestling took place,so fun but too long.
So the first match is DANIEL BRYAN finally getting his hands on TRIPLE H,with the winner being inserted into the main event.
What a start to the show,loads of highlights,brilliant wrestling,a feud intensifying,telling a brilliant story. This was what it should've been,really exciting stuff to get the blood pumping.
Next THE SHIELD take on KANE and THE NEW AGE OUTLAWS. A bit of a joke this one,i thought they would've had all 3 members of THE SHIELD facing each other in a real clash to get into,but no. So we have a rushed match offering very little,with just a nice end to make up for it.
The 30 man battle royal was a good one,with some great moments and KOFI KINGSTON giving a wrestlemania moment,the winner was an interesting one,but I had no gripes,he was impressive.
JOHN CENA takes on the oddity that is BRAY WYATT. The enterance for Bray was chilling and fitting,the match had moments of weirdness to stand out as being something really different,Bray played his character brilliantly. Cena looked great and gave the look of someone who was getting his mind messed with. I really appreciated this one.
UNDERTAKER defends his undefeated streak against the beast that is BROCK LESNAR. It takes a while to get going,but still has some nice moments and that end...that end that will be discussed for years. Great match,not one of Undertaker's best,but still very good.
The DIVA open invitational match was better than the usual diva ones,AJ looked as great as always and there were some good moments.
The main event,RANDY ORTON vs BATISTA vs the winner of the nights event opener really went for it.
Some top spots and all 3 wrestlers had shining moments. Batista,who looked pretty bad in previous weeks actually delivered here,Randy Orton looked great and the 3rd man really helped things along. The ringside area really got a battering
and some incidents had you wondering just what would happen next. For me,this match delivered its promise of a top encounter.
So a wrestlemania that few would find fault with,some shocks that might've annoyed,but a night to remember,great story telling,impressive wrestling and many a thrill. Wow,that's a wrestlemania.
