Mark Henry Vs Ryback
- If Triple H loses, he must retire
|Citric Cena, with a dash of lemon, no zest included.|
During the end of the match Rock suffered an injury completely tearing off the bone in his pelvis but thanked fans on twitter fort heir support. Some of the boys in the lockerroom however wonder if the injury is legit after Rock avoided surgery favouring rehab instead in order to complete filming on new film Hercules. Rock, to his credit also finished the match at Wrestlemania also.
In my professional opinion, the tag titles need to change hands in order to drive spark, meaning and interest in the tag wrestling scene. I would have switched the titles here. Despite Big E. being a terrible star already, the division needs something to light a firecracker up it. More NXT newbies are on the way finally and should be placed to start the tag situation and create more teams in the mix. Kane and Bryan should therefore remain challenging and able to refresh the scene with healthy competition. Corey Graves is one WWE should consider soon.
Alberto Del Rio rightfully retained but the comeptition was minor. Swagger was unreprimanded by WWE and didn't lose his 'Mania spot. Interestingly a footballer was in the same predicament as Swagger weeks after and was instantly suspended. Lukewarm and uninteresting dullard Swagger kept his place on the supercard signalling the end result and peeving fans feeling duped of their time and money. It did nothing to enhance Del Rio as champion. American fans also chanted for a Mexican instead of an American. Therefore, Jack Swagger's America is a dismal failure.
Undertaker and Punk had the most outstanding match on the show and capable of enthusing fans every time. Undie wanted Punk and its clear to see why. Some doubted Punk's booking to the match and whether he was the right opponent, though the match was a roaring success and showed no signs of Undertaker stripping down his questionable Wrestlemania appearance this year. The match is a clear early candidate for Match of the year, by far. They attempted to make the best of their time and they certainly did that with a whole lot more. Given the right opponents both Punk and 'Taker had everything fans needed to tick every box. Punk even wore purple to accommodate UT. Fans themselves were exhausted. It was Breathtaking. Bravo to both men.
Triple H's predictable win and failure to retire didn't receive praise from audience viewers. Many once again questioned Hunter's position. Is he someone who wishes to run the company and wrestle? Or is he someone who cannot prioritise and full of ego alone? Whatever the answer HHH must understand that he can wrestle minimally int he right circumstances, but the platform must be build on strong feuds and not rematches in unison with company requirements than appeasing a 'last run' of matches hear and there for personal nostalgia. However, Tripper did put in a fair match outing, but was still a little off in places and Brock Lesnar was immense in portrayal and style. Triple H helped along too but Lesnar chose to shine. Triple H, to his credit didn't do 'as much' as he previously had to "go into business for himself." Do we all remember Booker T? HHH needs to help the newbies along if he does do TV more. Shawn Michaels, however had no place on the card. It was a daft decision despite Michaels playing his role well. WWE need to stop relying on the oldies so frequently and place in the right spots than star appearances.
Fans were mildly fuming that United States Champion Antonio Cesaro, one of WWE's most consistent, workable and interesting talents was omitted from the card booking which saw Henry and Ryback water the process. WWE could have done many angles but simply went for 'the big ones' instead. A free for all grab bag could have happened for the US and IC titles, or Barrett's IC title could have stayed after The Miz became pointless transitional. WWE could have put in Sandow, Rhodes, Cara, Miz and Alex Riley or even Kofi Kingston and R-Truth in six or eight man action for the US title and finally turn Kofi who is in desperate need as mentioned numerous times on Wrestling Wonders. WWE simply can't think how to do it. It should consider finding those necessary bookers/writers/creative beings and shelve its pride if it wants to survive.
