    Guys, I know how they can fix this:

    On Raw, Rikishi suddenly interrupts a Rock/Cena bit, puts sunglasses on both of them, all 3 start dancing, then RIKISHI DANCE BETRAYAL to Cena and The Rock, then Rikishi says he "diddit for tha peepul" and leaves.

    Makes perfect sense.
    I had to rep you eventually.

    It was okay, best match was the Undertaker match and I liked the Triple H match, btw How come Undertaker looked like he had a tear in his eye after the match finished??
    Would imagine just because of Bearer.

    That main event was awful mind, two years running HHH and Taker have put on better matches than the main event. Glad I didn't pay for it tbh, especially since it went up in price.

    We will, don't worry


    My star ratings (Dave Meltzer System):

    The Shield vs Orton, Sheamus and Big Show - 2.75*

    Mark Henry vs Ryback - 1.75*

    Team Hell No vs Team Briefcase - 2.25*

    Chris Jericho vs Fandango - 2*

    Jack Swagger vs Alberto del Rio - 2.25*

    CM Punk vs The Undertaker - 4.25*

    Triple H vs Brock Lesnar - 3.25*

    The Rock vs John Cena - 3.5*

    A lot of average matches, with one great match. The spacing of the main events perhaps exhausted the crowd, and in turn, diminished the last two matches.

    Thank you

    Last paragraph is spot on. There was too much excitement for too little action (good fights).

    Crowd? What crowd? I would've rather watched The Rock vs Mankind whereby the arena was empty.

    You know, all the 80,000+ people going crazy for Rock and Cena, right? RIGHT?!

    Just had a look at my inbox page here, the whole page has pretty much the same subject with all different people :rofl:

    Because it reached a level where 3.5* is deserved, in terms of time length, crowd reaction (towards the end) and near falls. Some fun reversals during the match too. For a 24 minute main event of WrassleMania, 3.5* isn't so great.

    Must have seen the same reversal off AA into rock bottom and vice versa a number of times. I thought the crowd seemed quite uninterested tbh. I did enjoy Cena holding the ropes on the people's elbow attempt and mocking Rock. Rock sold the rock bottom really well too, but I just thought the match was repetitive and most of all the outcome was far too obvious. What would you have given their match last year, out of interest?

    Would've much preferred Punk/Taker to finish the show.

    Last year's match would be hovering around the 4 star mark. 3.75-4.

    Haitch-Lesnar would have been a lot higher if the crowd actually cared about it, and if it wasn't a carbon copy of the main event of Extreme Rules 2012.

    I too would have liked Punk-Taker to close the show, but we all know that was never going to happen.

    Can't disagree with any of that I still think your 3.5 for this year is generous mind.

    I was close to giving it 3.25, but I thought 3.5 is right. I think time will be kind to it.

    Shield vs Team He's Good Now - 6/10
    Ryback vs Henry - 4/10
    Tag Title match - 4/10
    Jericho vs Fandango - 5/10
    Del Rio vs Swagger - 6/10
    Punk vs Undertaker - 8/10
    Triple H vs Lesnar - 8/10
    Rock vs Cena - 6/10

    I'd give it around 60% overall using them scores, slightly rounded. Very average show, couple of good matches but nothing on this card will be remembered six months from now. Lots of video recaps and meaningless dead time in the first 90 minutes flattened a hot crowd then the 3 big matches at the end burned them out too fast, terrible formatting of the show. No real fanfare or drama this year, no shocks, no big entrances, no big time presentation beyond the fact the set was amazing and the stadium looked great. It always does. Not much pomp or paegentry in the product though, the statue of liberty stole the show.

    WrestleMania 28 last year was a great show, this year's follow up was far inferior to that show. Rock vs Cena II never hit the heights of the first match and was laid out poorly, in fact Cena had a better match with Punk on Raw recently. When the fans are chanting boring during the Mania main event, that's a terrible sign.

    Anyone really hate the crowd last night?

    Me and someone else were arguing that if they had a ppv here, that the audiences here would be equally lame?
    Though I've never been to a live event, I felt like what I saw with TNA at Wembley (don't ask me why I watched it!), the atmosphere for a WWE PPV would be pretty epic.

    What do you guys think?
