Wrestlemania XXX

I was really fascinated by this year’s Wrestlemania, that for the first time in years I actually watched it live and not when I got up in the morning or the following evening (avoiding spoilers of course).
It would be interesting as far as I was concerned that firstly there was no CM Punk as he had walked after the Rumble and also what would creative do with Daniel Bryan as he was so over with the fans.  To be fair I wasn’t disappointed except for perhaps the strained introduction where Stone Cold and The Rock blew Hogan off the radar with their still excellent promo skills.  Poor old Hukster even got the arena wrong.
All the matches were generally very good.  Bryan vs. HHH was a classic with two of the best from different generations going for it big time.  The winner going onto the Championship match with Orton and Bootista, sorry Batista.  The Battle Royale was first class with an excellent result.  Cena vs. Wyatt was pretty good but at time of writing, Super Cena has returned – how boring!!  The less said about Undertaker vs. Lesnar, just watch it.  The Divas match was a bit of filler as always.  The pre show was a tag team championship match and should have been on the main broadcast, but it was a ‘network’ exclusive.  How long do we have to wait for the damn Network, WWE?
The whole Hall of Fame Ceremony is included with that beautiful speech from the Warrior who would pass just a couple of days later. Loads of other bits ‘n’ bobs are also on the discs including some greatest ‘Mania moments and the History of Andre the Giant.
This years ‘Mania was excellent and the WWE pulled their finger out and delivered a really good classic PPV.  Even for an old cynic like me I loved the ending, but something else ending earlier on especially to a mercenary part-timer was not for me in fact I thought it quite crappy.  If it was the gentleman in question’s choice that’s fine, but someone else’s – gimme a break!!
Not essential but a compulsory purchase.
