The night had a very mixed card and a crowd that was perhaps a little too large.
Money In The Bank Ladder Match:
Mr. Kennedy Vs Finlay Vs Matt Hardy Vs Jeff Hardy Vs King Booker Vs CM Punk Vs Edge Vs Randy Orton
A great opener to Wrestlemania but was a little too slow paced, the match would have benifited from being a little shorter but having a faster pace. Also by having 8 men in the match you see very little of everyone, a few superstars would preform while the rest would disappear off camera. This is my least favourite money in the bank so far but that doesnt mean it wasnt good. Great match but should have been better
Kane v The Great Khali
This match really had no chance of being something special. The greatest moment came when Kane body slammed his giant opponent which brought memories of hogan doing the same to andre the giant at Wrestlemania 3.
United States Championship:
Chris Benoit Vs MVP
A pretty good wrestling match but nothing exciting enough to remember.
World Heavy Weight Championship:
Batista Vs Undertaker
This match was off the frekkin chains! A fantastic contest if i ever did see one. Both superstars put their heart and soul into this outstanding brawl between two warriors.
The ECW Originals (Tommy Dreamer, Sabu, The Sandman & Rob Van Dam) Vs The New Breed (Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, Matt Striker & Kevin Thorn)
This match seemed very tacked onto the show. It didn't feel very ECW at all. The match could have benifited if it had weapons or was a texas torando style tag match.
Battle of the Billionaires Hair Vs Hair Match
Bobby Lashley (w/ Donald Trump) Vs Umaga (w/ Mr. McMahon)
Steve Austin as Special Guest Referee
A nice gimmick match assuming you dont take it too seriously. This make was very fun and of course, it was great to see the rattle snake at a mania once again. Umaga and Lashley both did very well in the ring but does anyone really care if one of these 'billionaires' goes bold?
Lumberjill Match For The WWE Women's Championship:
Melina Vs Ashley Massaro
when you get to this match on the dvd, press the next chapter button. Enough said.
John Cena Vs Shawn Michaels
This match was very worthy to be the main event. John Cena once again prooves he can put on an exciting match and Michaels, as usual, steals the show. Match could have ran a few minutes shorter as it stands at just under half an hour with all the exciting action taking place well into the 2nd half of the match. This was a great main event that keptboth the crowd and myself on the edge of my seat.
This mania was very hit and miss. Both Championship matches were outstanding but half of the matches on the card were not Wrestlemania worthy at all, perhaps not even PPV worthy if im honest.
