Wrestlemania 27 Wrap-up! How did it all go down?





Well, Wrestlemania 27 has come and gone, folks.  I'd have posted about it as soon as it was over, but I figured it would have been better to sleep on it first. Let's keep this short, and just have a quick comparison to my previous blog entry and see just how predictable (or not) Wrestlemania 27 really was.

First things first:  Daniel Bryan vs Shaemus for the U.S Championship.....WE NEVER GOT TO SEE.  They instead made it a darkmatch (a non-televised event) which eventually turned into a battle royale in which the Great Khali won.  This was actually the match I wanted to see the most too, so I am very disappointed with WWE in that regard.  Victory for Great Khali.....wat

Edge vs Alberto Del Rio - I picked Alberto Del Rio, but NOPE!  Edge hits the spear and he successfully defended his title yet again.  Disappointed to be wrong, as I'm getting tired of Edge's title reign and a heel like Alberto Del Rio could have made the title interesting again.  Oh well.  Victory for Edge

Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes - I picked Cody Rhodes.  And, I was correct.  A very fun match, I think it might be my favorite of the whole night.   Rey came out dressed as Captain America and Cody Rhodes's gimmick has become quite interesting lately.  Victory for Cody Rhodes 

The Corre vs Kane, Big Show, Kofi Kingston, Santino Marella - I picked Kane & Friends, and sure enough they won.  Not only was it predictable as hell but it was a VERY short match, and possibly the second worst match of the evening. Victory for Kane & friends

CM Punk vs Randy Orton - I picked CM Punk....wait, I DID?!  Jeez, I really wasn't thinking through my last blog at all, was I?  Of course Randy Orton was the victor.  Impressive match for both, though CM Punk did most of the work.  Fun match, a bit disappointed by the outcome though. Victory for Randy Orton

Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole/w Jack Swagger - Picked Jerry Lawler.  And I was correct for about 30 seconds until the anonymous GM chimes in and goes NOPE LAWLER IS DISQUALIFIED BECAUSE STONE COLD INTERFERED HUUURRRRRR.  This is one of those moments where I'm glad wrestling is fake, because there would be some serious bloodshed after this turn out.  Match was a solid waste of 14 minutes.  Victory for Michael Cole

Triple H vs Undertaker - Picked Undertaker.  Undertaker won end of story.  Match lasted half an hour, so maybe my patience worn thin for the whole match.  Some people enjoyed it, I just wanted Triple H to lose so we can move on to other things.  Victory for Undertaker

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Trish Stratus, and John Morrison vs. Lay Cool (Michelle McCool and Layla) and Dolph Ziggler (with Vickie Guerrero.) - I picked Snooki and Friends, and of course that's exactly what happened.   Ziggler and Morrison didn't do shit this entire match, and Snooki managed to defy the laws of physics by doing a cartwheel.  Victory for Snooki and friends.

The Miz (c) vs. John Cena - I picked Miz.  And after a lot of bullshit and one final shenanigan from the Rock, the Miz won and successfully retained his title.  As this was the main event, I've just stopped giving a fuck about the entire thing, the audience seems to have started hating Cena a lot more too.  I mean, why cheer for Cena when you got the Rock?  Victory for Miz

Ok, so I successfully predicted 5 out of 9 matches.  I should have been able to do better.  The entire event was only OKAY to me, nothing really special or memorable aside from a few things.  Oh well, I'm tired of wrestling now, and I'm going to talk about video games or something on my next blog post.  Later.

  2. Did we get the Metallica song we were promised a few days ago at their twitter, or was that an april fool's joke? It was supposed to be featured on this show.

  3. @Claude - I'm actually glad it's fake, I got a nice youtube clip showing a wrestling match become real and it was a BEATDOWN. It was pretty cool, but didn't really make for a dramatic story. Maybe in another blog, I'll show it.

    @Parallel-Reality Hero - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t13Mnxk6ixE Quality is beyond crap, but yeah there was Metallica, and the entrance was dramatic as hell....but then it switched to "IT'S TIME TO PLAY THE GAMEEEEEE"

  20. @izzfoshizz For the same reason people would watch movies or TV. It's called "sports ENTERTAINMENT" for a reason. Argue it's not a real sport all you want I'd agree with you, but these people risk their bodies in the ring to tell a story to the audience and that has to count for SOMETHING.

    Pro-wrestling is theater in which the audience is encouraged to participate. The wrestlers themselves are characters, portrayed by actors. Battles of good vs evil take place in the ring where the audience cheers for the good guy and boos the bad guy. Conflict, drama, random jackassery, betrayal, even romance can occur and you know what? People find that entertaining to watch. Hard to understand, I know, but try sitting down and watching it sometime. You might be surprised.
