A bad Mania from a bad year for Wrestling as a Whole.
3 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The worst Wrestlemania I've ever seen was 21. This is coming from someone who missed 1-14,22 and 23. The main reason it flopped was its two horrendous main events and its misuse of talent(a major problem at the time especially).

Rey Mysterio def. Eddie Guerrero- It was perplexing to see Eddie open the show for the first time(after co-main eventing WM 20) and lose to Rey Mysterio. Even then I thought Eddie deserved the win and a better match on top of that. This match was okay. They could have done better. It was hampered by having nothing at stake(They could have made it a U.S title match), no buildup, or any special stipulations. It felt like a regular Smackdown match. (3/5)

Money in the Bank Ladder Match Edge def. Chris Benoit, Shelton Benjamin, Chris Jericho, Christian and Kane- This match was alright, nowhere near as good as other ladder matches, but like the last match, these competitors would have served better spread out across the show. Benoit and Jericho were worthy of main eventing Wrestlemania,something WWE only exploited once for each. (3.5/5)

Interpromotional Match Undertaker def. Randy Orton- The match of the night. The tombstone flip into a tombstone was a great spot, something not seen before at the time. (4/5)

Women's Championship Match Trish Stratus def. Christy Hemme w/ Lita to retain-This match was so bad I don't even remember it.(2/5)

Interpromotional Match Kurt Angle def. Shawn Michaels- This match was pretty slow and never seemed to take off, which is a surprise considering the competitors. People that say this was one of their favorite matches of all time obviously never saw Jericho v.s Michaels a couple years back, which was probably the best Mania match of all time.(3.5/5)

Sumo Matach Akebono def. Big Show-Hands down the biggest waste of time in WWE history.(1/5)

WWE Championship Match John Cena def. JBL to become new champion- People that complain about HHH, Cena, more recently Orton or anyone else for holding the title forgot about JBL's terrible 1 year reign as World Champ that felt twice as long. they still haven't learned their lesson, which is: World Title Reigns shouldn't last a year unless the CHamp a) is a great wrestler/entertainer or b) has considerable star power. WHile JBL is entertaining, he has neither of these qualities in spades. His reign should've ended at Summerslam. This reign single handedly murdered Smackdown, which was twice as good as Raw for quite some time beforehand. It still hasn't recovered. It should have been Eddie vs Cena. At least it was over quick. (2/5)

World Heavyweight Championship Match Batista def. Triple H to become new champion- This match, like most of HHH's matches of this period were just plain boring, which means it lasted twice as long as it should've and HHH just bled a lot(The worst of these was his craptacular 40 minute snoozefest with HBK at Bad Blood 2004). (2/5)

Overall=6/10
