Not the worst Mania, but not the best either
2 April 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There were certainly a lot of great things about this Mania and a few questionable decision on behalf of the boss but an all round good mania.

The night starts off with a world title match for the 2nd year in a row, Daniel Bryan defends against Sheamus this was extremely exciting for me as it would be the first WWE PPV event i would be watching live, now this match lasted 18 seconds yes 18 freaking seconds, Sheamus wins after a massive boot to the head, and we have a new champion. Now the under card of this Mania was extremely poor, don't get me wrong Orton Kane, Big Show and Rhodes for the IC Title are not bad matches, they just don't really deliver anything for the fans to remember. Another terrible part about this night is the extremely poor backstage promos which just seem to be time fillers and pee breaks for all fans at the event and at home.

Now let me get to the high points of this night, the first high point is the Hell In A Cell End Of An Era match between 2 future WWE hall of famers that being of course Triple H and The Undertaker with the added stipulation of Shawn Michaels being the special guest referee. This match is extremely brutal, the best example of that is the amount of hits Taker took with a steel chair to the back. The cuts and bruisers on his back were evident. The match ends after a brutal tombstone, this takes Undertakers incredible winning streak at Wrestlemania to a perfect 20-0. The 3 men walking out together added to the billing of the End Of An Era. The next match for the WWE Title puts the 2 best wrestlers in the company. Chris Jericho and CM Punk. The 2 both claim to be the best in the world, this match proved they both are, an incredible match which didn't get a lot of praise due to it having to follow up Hell In A Cell. CM Punk retains forcing Jericho to tap to the Anaconda Vice. The most anticipated match in wrestling history is finally upon us. Once In A Lifetime the face of the wrestling industry for 6 years John Cena and one of the most successful men in entertainment The Rock. These 2 have a match for the ages, the crowd is insane and are extremely vocal throughout the match, the match is back and forth and the Rock gets the win after he counters an attempted People's Elbow from Cena on Rock into a Rock Bottom and gets the 1 2 3.

All in all this event is saved by it's upper card. World title match should not have been 18 seconds, bad decision from Vince. A poor lower card is saved by an extremely strong upper card.
