Wrestlemania 29

 

Another year, another Wrestlemania and the third one in a row to feature the returning Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.  This year’s main event pitched the WWE Champion Johnson versus John Cena in a rematch of last year’s  main event.  Of course this was just one a stacked card with two more ‘main events’ CM Punk vs Undertaker (the best match all night) and Triple H vs Brock Lesnar as well.

At the time of writing, it’s been revealed this PPV had well over a million buys (including me) and been amazingly successful for Vince McMahon.  Of course the undercard is equally important and it featured a couple of stand out matches including Chris Jericho being upset by Fandango and the continued well deserved push for ‘The Shield’.  The only thing that really bothered me was the rather pointless Sean Coombs gig, but then I can’t stand P.Diddy or whatever he’s called this week so I’m a bit biased.

The package put together by WWE is excellent with the whole event, various extras, the You Tube pre-show where The Miz took on Wade Barrett and the full Hall of Fame ceremony, not the badly butchered edition show on USA and Sky Sports.

Whilst it’s not the best Wrestlemania ever, I love VI the most (The Ultimate Challenge) it is another example that the WWE are geniuses when they pull out all the stops for a PPV.  First class essential stuff on 3 DVD’s or 2 blu-ray’s.
