Review

There is hours upon hours of footage here from the performances to the matches and then to finish the Hall of Fame ceremony, I will highlight some of my personal favorite highlights and give you an insight as to what a great purchase this is for WWE fans across the globe!

TRIPLE H VS BROCK LESNAR

The match between Triple H and Brock Lesnar is a superb display of 2 WWE heavyweights going head to head, if Triple H loses however he must retire, this no holds barred match is an awesome display of strength and of pure determination and the will to carry on. A great match with twists and turns that is Wrestlemania worth from start to finish !

CHRIS JERICHO VS FANDANGO

For me personally Fandango is a useless wrestler, his character is not a likeable one but none the less the match was great. I may be a little bias towards this match as I met Chris Jericho not long after Wrestlemania but after watching it, Chris has still got it after all this time, a great display of athleticism compared to the rugged, muscle orientated match of Triple H and Brock Lesnar.

UNDERTAKER VS CM Punk

Will Undertaker win ONCE again at Wrestlemania and continue his amazing streak of wins throughout the main event. A thoroughly entertaining match, even before it starts The Undertakers entrance never fails to send shivers down my spine !

THE ROCK VS JOHN CENA

I have to always mention The Rock in any match as one of my favorites, no matter what happens if a match contains The Rock I’ll always love it ! The people’s champ puts on  a great display and the match takes me back to the Stone Cold vs The Rock Wrestlemania match, twists, turns, unbearable pain and countless finishing moves. A must watch !

IF YOU SMELL WHAT I’M COOKING !

HALL OF FAME – MICK FOLEY

Now the Hall of Fame ceremony is superb but my favorite inductee would be Mick Foley, an amazing speech, a recalling of previous matches and how he first got introduced into the business along with an onstage elbow onto Chris Jericho! and to top it off none other than Santa Claus himself takes to the stage with Mick for the final farewell. A MUST WATCH!
