I enjoyed the first parts of Mania, and it seemed to go by quick until after Taker vs Punk... then it seemed to slow down... Overall, a decent Mania

I think at this point, you just really cant follow Taker

I only saw the last three matches. Nothing special IMO. Results were exactly what everybody predicted months ago.

Really tired of the false finishes a million times in every damn match.

It was likely Rene Young, AKA Rene Paquette, in Canada.

She's been doing backstage interviews on NXT and Smackdown for the last few weeks so it was probably her.

Sheamus/Big Show/Orton vs The Shield was bad, Mark Henry vs Ryback was bad, Tag Title match was ok-ish, nothing special, Fandango vs Jericho was decent, World Title match wasn't special ( I guess Swagger will be suspended now ), Punk vs UT would have been better had the table broke and they did more with the urn, Brock vs HHH was good, probably the match of the night, Cena vs Rock was what it was I guess. Not bad, but just seemed 'ok'. It looked like guys were blowing spots and moves all night.

Triple H had x-rays done on his arm last night but there were no signs of anything past some muscle bruising. His arm and hand were swollen after the Brock Lesnar bout.
CM Punk's leg was badly banged up from the spot where he leapt off the top rope with the flying elbow on Undertaker, who was on a table outside the ring, only for the table to not budge, much less not break. There were a lot of people backstage after the show who were amazed he didn't slow down and finished the match as he was in a lot of pain when he returned.

The inter-gender tag match was cut before the PPV went on the air as they wanted to give the top three matches as much time as they wanted. I've heard time was cut from the Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio as well and the company broke from tradition by cutting Lilian Garcia singing "America The Beautiful."

There were no fireworks to open the show due to the light skies and the feeling that the Hurricane Sandy video would be overpowered by the pyro. The company wanted the video to really resonate with those watching as a well to help quietly push their Sandy victim auctions. Kudos to them.

There were a lot of WWE mid-card talents who were down that they never got to go out in front of the crowd or had backstage segments, especially since in years past, the company had always tried to squeeze everyone in. There was also a lot of talk about how silly it was that Antonio Cesaro didn't have a spot on the show given how hard he's worked.

Did anyone expect differently? Perhaps we'll get a rubber match down the line, but Rock will be heading back to Hollywood soon while Cena is staying. It makes sense for the WWE to have Rock give Cena the thumbs up since the crowd split over him has become even more pronounced during the Mania build up. The match itself started too slowly, but then built up nicely. The big problem was they did at least one false finish too many, it hurt the pop for the actual finish.

I liked the card on the whole. That judgment could be clouded due to watching the show with friends and enjoying the get together as much as the PPV, but it was still a fun night.

Apart from the mixed eight person tag, I wonder if anything else got cut and at what point they started falling so badly behind on time. Cena normally has a very elaborate Mania entrance, as did Rock last year. This year they used standard entrances. Maybe that was due to a desire to give things a no nonsense feel or maybe the WWE had no choice but to get them into the ring due to the clock running out. There also were few backstage or interview segments. It felt like some other things landed on the editing room floor.

I thought it came off exactly the way it was suppose to but I was subtly mocking earlier calls for Cena to turn heel @ WM which was hinted @ but realistically was not going to happen

No heel turn = kiss & hug option

Taker vs Punk was the match of the night. I thought the rest was good. Only one I really hated was Jericho vs Fandango not because Jericho did the job. Because Fandango didnt really showed me anything. Other get does a great Alabama Jam. 95% of the match was Jericho. He should never been on Mania.

Should of been Jericho vs Antonio Cesaro

I would give the ppv 7/10

Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter had their entrance cut from Wrestlemania due to timing issues. The two came driving out in a golf cart themed for Swagger's Real American persona.

We'll have to see whether the cart gets added to their entrances going forward.

The Stuff on HHH was from Dry Ice. It gave him 2nd degree burns on his stomach and arms.
