Wrestlemania 21
16 June 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Match one pitted Rey Mysterio against his friend and partner, Eddie Guerrero. To be honest this was a minor disappointment. Although one angle was seriously botched, Rey's adjusting of his mask, was distracting to the viewers then it was too him.

Next up was the brilliant ladder match which consisted of Kane, Chris Jericho, Edge, Christian, Chris Benoit and the all improving Shelton Benjamin. The match contained less suicidal bumps then Wrestlemania 17 TLC match, but it was a huge enjoyable effort. Edge won the bout.

Then Eugene (whom no one cared about) came down to talk about his favourite wrestlemania moment, which sent everyone to sleep. The relief came when Muhammad Hassan came to the ring with Daivari. They attacked poor Eugene, when all of a sudden Hulk Hogan came down and beat the crap out of the two villains. However Hogan did not check on Eugene and he posed for a couple of minutes, which seemed like 5 hours.

In match number 3 , The Legend Killer - Randy Orton battled The Undertaker, in a surprisingly good encounter. Taker won when he Tombstoned Orton. Next up was the poor Women's encounter between Christy Hemme and Trish Stratus. This was poor and even though Trish tried to get the best out of Christy, it wasn't good enough. Trish won when she hit the chick kick.

Then perhaps the best match of the night, Kurt Angle battled Shawn Michaels. This was excellent and even though these two men aren't in their prime, they showed everyone that age isn't important. Angle won when he made HBk tap to the ankle lock. Then unfortunately, the event goes down hill. The Big Show battles Japanese sumo wrestler Akebono, in a crap sumo match. Akebono won (obviously) when he threw Show out of the ring.

Next up John 'Bradshaw' Leyfield battled John Cena in a poor match. Cena hit the F-U on Bradshaw to win the WWE title. However the fans knew that Cena was going to win, and it seemed like someone won a raffle as opposed to winning the title.

Then in the main event, Triple H battled Batista in an average match. The match went on for 22 minutes, which was probably long enough in Dave Batista's eyes. Batista won when he power bombed HHH and lifted the World Heavyweight Championship up, but no one cared! Overall 7/10
