More buildup then anything else, kinda pointless really.
MITB MatchSmackdown vs. RAW
Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Matt Hardy, Shelton Benjamin, Drew McIntyre vs. Christian, MVP, Jack Swagger, Evan Bourne, and Kofi Kingston. Kofi and Matt get great pops, but Christian's is by far the biggest. I had a lot of fun with this one, as it was all over the place, but in a fun way. Drew takes advantage of Christian's kill switch and hits Christian with The Future Shock. Drew tries to climb the ladder afterwords, but all 9 push him off.
3 1/2 /5
Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler hype up Mania at Axxess. Wasting time for all of this? it looks cool, yeah, but.. still.
Beth Phoenix vs. Vickie Guerrero. Beth is out to a great pop. Vickie does her usual routine, and announces a 5 on 1 Handicap match, against Alicia Fox, McCool, Maryse and Layla. Match is complete crap of course, but seeing Beth have her way for the most part was fun. McCool hits a crappy looking boot shot to the face, and Vickie pins her for the win. Vickie goes to hit the Frog splash, but Mickie, Kelly and Gail Kim make the save. Beth hilariously strips Vickie of her pants.
1 1/2 /5
Chris Jericho is out. Jericho says he will retain his title, and puts over Edge's tenacity, his heart, and his passion. And that he keeps coming back, and the love he has for all his hypocrites. He says Edge has everything to beat Jericho, except his DNA. Jericho says his superior DNA, made him champ, the 1st Undisputed Champion, the best Wrestler of his generation, and the best at the world at what he does. He says Edge is a reject, with a defective DNA, and he will end Edge's career at Wrestlemania. He says he will break Edge's Achilles tendon, and not to blame him, but to blame his DNA. Edge is out, and he takes out Jericho, holding the belt up high. Very Meh in my opinion, sounded like a science exhibit for my money.
More pointless hyping up the show.
John Morrison Vs The Big Show. THIS WAS THE MAIN EVENT???!. Pretty mediocre, and didn't really show anything to be main event worthy. Big Show wins by DQ.
Bottom line. Pretty bad way to build up Mania. Vince got lazy here and it showed. If they spent more time on matches and promo's, it would have been much better. Recommendation to avoid.
