Wrestlemania 28 Review
29 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1. World Heavyweight Championship - Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus This was a very disappointing start to the biggest PPV of the year. Only 18 seconds long while these two deserve 20. 1/10

2. Kane vs. Randy Orton This match actually surprised me. I was very entertained by the action throughout, and the pace really quickened towards the end. Good finish as well. 7/10

3. Intercontinental Championship - Cody Rhodes vs. The Big Show This was just too short in my opinion at just over 5 minutes. It wasn't a bad match but it could have been better if it was given a few more minutes, 5/10

4. Eve & Beth Phoenix vs. Kelly Kelly & Maria Well this could have been worse, still not worth the watch. 2/10

5. Hell In A Cell Match - The Undertaker vs. Triple H Shawn Michaels was the guest referee for the match,, which really added to the drama. These two put on an amazing, main event worthy match. This one topped their fight at last year's Wrestlemania. It did get pretty slow but that would probably be my only complaint. Great hell in a cell match. 9/10

6. Team Johnny vs. Team Teddy Nothing special here, they kept it short so it never got boring though. I found it funny that Team Johnny captain Otunga never actually saw any action. 5/10

7. WWE Championship - CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho This was another match that was main event worthy. Great action from start to finish. There were a few cringe-worthy spots as well which really added to the match. There was a great sequence at the end of the match as well. Awesome title match. 9/10

8. John Cena vs. The Rock The match that we all waited a year to see, and it truly lived up the hype. These two put on a great show for over thirty minutes. The crowd was really behind The Rock here. It was a very fitting end to this year's Wrestlemania. 8/10

While the undercard wasn't anything special, the Hell in a cell, Punk/Y2J and Rock/Cena matches all made the pay per view special. I would recommend the DVD for those 3 matches alone.
