WWE WrestleMania 28
2 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another excellent WrestleMania in my opinion! This time I watched it on WWE.com online Pay Per View. My views are in parenthesis.

* The pre-show saw Primo and Epico retain their Tag Team Championships in a triple threat match against The Uso's and Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel. (A nice match to get things started. Didn't think the titles would change hands, but I think that Kidd and Gabriel are going to make an awesome tag team.)

1. Sheamus beat Daniel Bryan to win the World Heavyweight Championship.(This was one hell of a quick title change that I immediately cracked up after I saw it.)

2. Kane beat Randy Orton. (In my predictions I picked Orton to win. The ending was pretty wild and they both fought a good match that either one could have won.)

3. Big Show beat Cody Rhodes to win the Intercontinental Championship. (In my predictions I picked Rhodes to retain. It was great to see Show get his moment while Rhodes had a great run with the title. Show's KO punch really looks like it hurts bad.)

4. Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos beat Eve and Beth Phoenix. (Didn't really care for this one. However I find it funny that Maria now holds two victories over Beth Phoenix. Maybe she's earned herself a shot at the Divas Championship.....)

5. Undertaker beat Triple H in a Hell in a Cell Match. (Awesome, just an awesome match!!)

6. Team Johnny beat Team Teddy. (I predicted that Team Johnny would win as well and it was nice to see The Miz get the pin for the win. Hopefully this will be the end of those long loosing streaks for Miz and Drew McIntyre. As of now John Laurinaitis is in control of both brands.)

7. CM Punk beat Chris Jericho to retain the WWE Championship. (Great back and forth match.)

8. The Rock beat John Cena. (Awesome match as well. Rock and Cena gave it their all but on this night it was the Rock that came out on top. Great main event to another excellent mania.)

Thanks!!
