Sheamus and Daniel Bryan had a dark match and people are mad it didn’t air at Wrestlemania. There was also a battle royal that Khali won. Very few people are mad about this not airing during Wrestlemania. I haven’t heard this much complaining about a wrestling show since…last Monday. Because people bitch about wrestling all year long but all of a sudden expected something magical to happen and when it didn’t people lost their fucking minds.
I actually liked the show. I don’t watch WWE, TNA, or ROH regularly. I watch stuff online the next day or read the results and if there is something that sounds cool I will watch it. Hell, even if it sounds bad depending on whose writing it I know I’ll actually like it.
The first match (that aired) with Edge versus Alberto Del Rio was cool. People complained because it opened the show. Who gives a damn? It was a good match! I like Del Rio. I liked him in Mexico and I like him more now. The Cody Rhodes and Rey Mysterio match was good and had an ending I didn’t expect. I seriously thought Rey would win. The creative way Cody won and the way the crowd was cheering for him made me smile.
The Kane, Big Show, Kofi Kingston, Santino versus The Corre match was over just as fast as it begun. I didn’t mind because I wasn’t expecting this match to be good. Did you? Honestly? The Orton and CM Punk match was good and had a cool story built into it. Orton acted like his leg was gonna fall off. That bionic RKO made me cheer. A fun match. I am a huge Orton fan and he has managed to come back from multiple injuries and still go out and please the fans.
The Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler match was goofy. I didn’t expect it to be a fucking classic or anything but from the way people are acting they wanted Cole to be murdered. It was an announcer versus an announcer that used to wrestle. Stop the bitching. “The GM reversed it! That’s bullshit!” The GM has been doing this kinda shit for like a year now. Did you expect a clean finish? You did? Wow.
Who are you people complaining about the HHH and Undertaker match? These two almost killed themselves and put on a very entertaining match but people are saying “Oh, it wasn’t as good as Taker’s match with HBK.” And? Are we going to compare Wrestler 1 with Wrestler 2’s match against Wrestler 3? You know that Sheamus and Bryan match you didn’t get to see? Bryan’s match against Morishima was better. That doesn’t matter because is in the past. If Taker went out and had matches like he did against HBK every time he stepped in the ring he’d be dead.
The John Cena and The Miz match ended just like I figured it would. People got mad because…I honestly don’t know. If Cena had won people would be mad. He lost and people got mad. There is no pleasing wrestling fans! I was talking to someone earlier who also watched Wrestlemania (which I suspect many people moaning about it didn’t do) and we both agreed that if fans got what they wanted with wrestle wrestlers would be dead. It would be iron man matches every night. Hardcore matches every night. Shooting Star Presses five times a match. You cant put on the best match ever every night. They get tired. They have off nights.
“But…its Wrestlemania! You cant have an off night!”
Yeah, you can.
They’re human. They make mistakes. They get worn out from all the events (pleasing us, the fans) throughout the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania. If you have been complaining the past few years about wrestling and thought this past Sunday was gonna fix that, I don’t know what to tell you. It’s the same WWE you’ve been getting for a while now.
