WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
KANE & BIG SHOW VS. CARLITO & CHRIS MASTERS
I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THESE TWO TEAMS. BUT, THEY REALLY PUT ON A DECENT OPENER FOR WRESTLEMANIA. NOTHING SPECIAL AS IT WAS ONLY AROUND 6 MINUTES LONG, BUT THEY DID GOOD WITH THE TIME GIVEN. ENDING QUESTIONS THE TEAM OF CARLITO AND CHRIS MASTERS. AFTER THE TURN OF CARLITO, I THINK WE MIGHT SEE A MATCH AT BACKLASH BETWEEN THE TWO. DECENT OPENER.
WINNERS & STILL WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: KANE & BIG SHOW
RATING: 6

MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH
MATT HARDY VS. FINLAY VS. LASHLEY VS. ROB VAN DAM VS. SHELTON BENJAMIN VS. RIC FLAIR VS. ROB VAN DAM
ANOTHER MATCH THAT WAS SOMEWHAT HARD TO PREDICT, AS ANY OF THESE MEN SEEM WORTHY OF A TITLE SHOT, BUT I WAS LEANING TOWARDS RVD MOST OF THE WAY. THOUGH NOT AS LONG AS LAST YEARS, THIS WAS A WELL DONE SPOTFEST MATCH. MANY GOOD SPOTS FOUND HERE BY EACH OF THE COMPETETIORS. AT AROUND THE 12 MINUTE MARK, VAN DAM KNOCKS HARDY AND BENJAMIN'S LADDER DOWN MAKING THEM GO OVER THE TOPE ROPE, SECURING THE BRIEFCASE.
WINNER: ROB VAN DAM
RATING: 8

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP
CHRIS BENOIT VS. JBL
A DECENT MATCH WITH AN UNEXPECTED FINIH, WHICH IS A GOOD THING AND A BAD THING. ONE, IT CAUGHT EVERYBODY BY SUPRISE, AND A WRESTLEMANIA NEEDS SUPRISES. BUT SECOND, A ROLL UP REVERSING THE CROSSFACE USING THE ROPES OUT OF NO WHERE IS NOT A GOOD FINISH. SOME SAY THE WRONG MAN WON, BUT I THINK IT IS QUITE FITTING FOR WRESTLEMANIA TO HAVE SOMETHING UNEXPECTED HAPPEN. BASICALLY WHAT I EXPECTED FROM THESE TWO, A DECENT, BUT NOTHING SPECIAL MATCH.
WINNER & NEW UNITED STATES CHAMPION: JBL
RATING: 6

HARDCORE MATCH
EDGE VS. MICK FOLEY
JUST LIKE WHAT I EXPECTED, THIS WAS AN AWESOME, AND UGLY HARDCORE MATCH. FROM START TO FINISH, THIS ONE WAS BRUTAL. A LITTLE TOO EARLY IN THE PPV IN MY MIND, BUT IT DOES HEAT UP THE CROWD EARLY ON, JUST LIKE MONEY IN THE BANK, WHICH SO FAR HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE SECOND MATCH OF WRESTLEMANIA. MANY GOOD SPOTS IN THIS MATCH, AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM IS BRUTAL. A GREAT MATCH FOR ECW TYPE HARDCORE FANS, BUT ALSO FO ANY TRUE WRESTLING FAN. THIS MAYBE EVEN EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. VERY WELL DONE ENDING, WITH EDGE SPEARING MICK THROUGH THE ROPES THROUGH A TABLE ON FIRE.
WINNER: EDGE
RATING: 8

HANDICAPT MATCH
BOOGEYMAN VS. BOOKER T & SHARMELL
AS ENTERTAINING AS THE FEUD MAY HAVE BEEN, LIKE I EXPECTED, THE MATCH WAS POINTLESS. WHY WOUDLD A 5 TIME WCW CHAMPION LOSE TO A MAN WHO CANT WRESTLE FOR [...] IN UNDER 3 MINUTES? NOT TOO HORRIBLE, BUT I CANT SAY IT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER. BOOKER SHOULD HAVE WON IN MY MIND, AS HE IS THE BETTER WRESTLER. SHARMELL WAS JUST THROWN IN THERE FOR ON SPOT, BUT THEN SHE RAN AWAY. YOU CAN SKIP THIS ONE, BUT IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THE BOOGEYMAN, HERE HE IS.
WINNER: BOOGEYMAN
RATING: 2

WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP
MICKY JAMES VS. TRISH STRATUS
I WAS EXPECTING MICKY TO WALK OUT WITH THE TITLE, AND LIKE ME AND THE CROWD OF CHICAGO, SHE DID. BUT NOT JUST IN AN AVERAGE WOMAN'S MATCH. THIS WAS VERY GOOD AND LIKE THE HARDCORE MATCH EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. THESE TWO WORK WELL TOGETHER, AND PULLED OFF A GOOD MATCH. BETTER THAN THEIR AVERAGE MATCH AT NEW YEARS REVOLUTION EARLIER THIS YEAR. MICKY IS PLAYING HER PSYCHO ROLE WELL, AND SHE SHOWS THAT A LOT IN THIS MATCH.
WINNER & NEW WOMEN'S CHAMPION: MICKY JAMES
RATING: 7.5

CASKET MATCH
UNDERTAKER VS. MARK HENRY
I WAS SUPRISED TO SEE THAT THESE TWO ACTUALLY MADE A DECENT MATCH. UNDERTAKER CARRIED HENRY WELL HERE, WITH SOME NICE SPOTS, INCLUDING A LAST RIDE POWERBOMB, A HUGE PLANCHA OVER THE TOP ROPE AND THE CASKET ON THE OUTSIDE, AND A TOMBSTONE ON THE 400 POUND MARK HENRY. I THINK THAT THE PACE OF THE MATCH WAS PRETTY GOOD, BECAUSE OF THE UNDERTAKER. OF COURSE WE KNEW TAKER WOULDNT LOSE AT WRESTLEMANIA, BUT WE DIDNT KNOW THAT HE WOULD MAKE A DECENT MATCH OUT OF MARK HENRY.
WINNER: UNDERTAKER
RATING: 6

NO HOLDS BARRED
SHAWN MICHAELS VS. VINCE MCMAHON
ANOTHER NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH ON THE CARD THAT I THOUGHT WAS PRETTY GOOD. BETTER THAN I EXPECTED, AS IT WAS PRETTY HARDCORE, JUST NOT LIKE THE HARDCORE MATCH EARLIER. NICE ENCIND WITH THE ELBOW DROP FROM THE 20 FOOT LADDER ON VINCE THROUGH A TABLE WITH A TRASH CAN OVER HIS HEAD. GOOD SPOTS HERE AND SOME RUN INS INCLUDING SHANE MCMAHON AND THE SPIRIT SQUAD, BUT I THINK IT JUST MADE THE MATCH BETTER. SOME D-X CROTCH CHOPS BY HBK HERE, MAYBE A SYMBOL OF THE RETURN OF D-X? MAYBE.
WINNER: SHAWN MICHAELS
RATING: 7

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP TRIPLE THREAT MATCH
KURT ANGLE VS. RANDY ORTON VS. REY MYSTERIO
AS I EXPECTED, THIS WAS A QUICK PACED MATCH, WITH SOME GOOD MOVES USED IN IT. BUT THE ONLY FAULTS IN THIS MATCH ARE ONE, REY MYSTERIO'S ENTRANCE WAS ALMOST AS LONG AS THE MATCH, WHICH TELLS YOU HE IS WALKING OUT OF WRESTLEMANIA AS CHAMPION, AND TWO, THE MATCH WAS JUST TOO SHORT. AT AROUND THE 9 MINUTE MARK, REY HITS THE 619 FOLLOWED BY THE WEST COAST POP ON RANDY ORTON TO GET THE THREE. THOUGH IT WAS SHORT, THEY MADE THE BEST OF IT, AND MADE A GOOD SMACKDOWN WRESTLEMANIA MAIN EVENT.
WINNER & NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION: REY MYSTERIO
RATING: 7

WRESTLEMANIA 22 MAIN EVENT
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP
JOHN CENA VS. TRIPLE H
DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THESE TWO, BUT THEY MADE A PRETTY GOOD WRESTLEMANIA MAIN EVENT MATCH. CENA GETS BOOED A LOT HERE BY THE CHICAGO CROWD, WHILE TRIPLE H SEEMS LIKE THE FAN FAVORITE. GOOD ENTRANCES BY BOTH MEN, BUT CENA'S GANGSTER ENTRANCE THAT WAS MEANT TO GET THE CROWD ON HIS SIDE DIDNT WORK VERY WELL. MANY CHANTS AGAINST CENA HERE. VERY SUPRISED AT THE ENDING, WITH CENA MAKING TRIPLE H TAP OUT TO THE STFU, AND IT REALLY DISSAPOINTED ME. THE CHICAGO CROWD LEFT WRESTLEMANIA UNHAPPY, AS WELL AS I DID. I DIDNT THINK IT WAS A GOOD DECISION BY WWE TO HAVE CENA RETAIN. STILL ENOUGH WITH THE NEGATIVES, THIS WAS A WELL PUT TOGETHER MATCH, AND MADE A GOOD MAIN EVENT FOR WRESTLEMANIA 22.
WINNER & STILL WWE CHAMPION: JOHN CENA
RATING: 8

PPV RATING - (65.5/100) = 66

OVERALL, WRESTLEMANIA 22 WAS A GOOD EVENT THAT IS WORTH THE TIME AND MONEY. I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THOSE COMMENTS, AS IT WAS A GOOD WRESTLEMANIA, NOT THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME, BUT IT SURE DID HAVE ITS BIG TIME MOMENTS, BUT ONLY A FEW NEGATIVES HERE. THE BOOKER T VS. BOOGEYMAN MATCH WAS THING THAT BROUGHT ITS RATING DOWN. A LOT OF UNEXPECTED FINISHES HERE, BUT THAT DOESNT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THIS YEARS WRESTLEMANIA WAS A VERY GOOD PAY PER VIEW.
