WrestleMania 27

Here's what I posted on the night of WrestleMania 27.  I was at the show so these were some quick thoughts before bed.

Different perspective as I was there, but I thought it was a really great event. Now, again, I mean the whole experience so if I was sitting at home I might very well feel different about it.

A couple of quick notes:

Lawler/Cole was just like Hart/VKM. Cole was on offense for far too long. Swagger was entertaining and Austin was fun, but I can see why people would be turned off by him dominating that match.

The Rock was incredible.

I agree with whoever said that the Cena/Miz match was the crowd didn't have anyone to cheer for.

I was shocked that Edge retained. I like Edge, but I really wanted to see ADR walk out the champ. Funny thing was these Mexican gents near us had a professionally printed banner with a pic of the WM logo and ADR with the WHC. They left it at the end of the show. I would have gotten it, but some kid appeared to want it as he was folding it up by the time I noticed it.

Sheamus/Bryan was disappointing. Just to be clear, they started the US title match as a pre-WM match with a lumberjack stip. Then the lumberjacks got too involved so Teddy Long made it a non-title battle royal. Mark Henry getting eliminated was not greeted warmly by the crowd. Kahli got a nice reaction.

The crowd crapped on Snooki, but when she did her couple of cheerleader moves the crowd warmed up to her.

Triple H/UT was incredible and I hate both guys. Great drama and facials by Trips.

More later. It's time for bed.
