If WrestleMania is truly the "Super Bowl of sports entertainment," then it deserves Super Bowl DVD treatment as well. In the past, WrestleMania DVDs were treated like any other pay-per-view event, but this time, WWE finally got it right. This two-disc set features a ton of goodies that not only add context and enhance the matches in WrestleMania 18, but take a look back at seminal WrestleMania moments. You get the top five WrestleMania finishes, the complete Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior match from WrestleMania 6, and a ton of other extras. As for WrestleMania 18 itself... well, perhaps there is a reason all of the supplement material was included, because it's a bit of a lackluster affair. The hype is there, with Hogan battling the Rock, Triple H fighting to regain the WWE title from Jericho, and the Undertaker vs. Ric Flair. However, actually watching aging legends like Hogan and Flair wrestle in their 50s is more sad than thrilling. In the end, the event seems more like the Geriatric Bowl than the Super Bowl. --Dave McCoy

A big match was Undertaker vs Ric Flair. I give Taker credit for helping Flair regain some confidence as Flair was depressed at the time and thought his wrestling days were over. They put on an awesome match. Flair put everything he had into the match and I thought it was a big match for him. Taker always comes through at Wrestlemania and Flair was the perfect guy to work with.
Two of the things I liked was DDP and RVD both picking up some gold. DDP became The European Champion and they heavily buried him when he came over from WCW but this gave him a Wrestlemania moment he won a strap against a good wrestler in Christian. RVD took the IC strap and he certainly always deserves to win gold and he is a very popular wrestler and the hero's need to win at Mania.
Kurt Angle and Kane put on a great match. Kane is a great wrestler and Angle can have a five star match with anyone. I liked Triple H and Jericho match. I think Jericho should have won though. I am just a Jericho fan and was so happy to see him finally win the title and have a nice brief run as champ. I think the show needed to close out with Hulk and Rock.
In the end we were treated to a lot of the wrestling legends of the 90's when wrestling was big from WCW and ECW like The NWO, DDP, Booker T, Ric Flair, RVD come in and get their Wrestlemania moments. This Wrestlemania will be remembered for Hulk and The Rock but there were a lot of other great matches on the card and it was an entertaining Wrestlemania. I confess I wanted to see Stone Cold wrestle Hogan and defeat him but The Rock vs Hogan has to be one of the biggest matches in wrestling history. It was awesome cheers and enjoy!
Vince McMahon bought in the nWo as an leathal dose of poison to the WWF, but Hollywood Hulk Hogan was poison to the nWo. After WrestleManiam, Hulk Hogan resigned from the nWo.
Possibly the best WrestleMania ever! The Matches were:
William Regal Vs. RVD (4/10) A great way to start WrestleMania!
DDP vs. Christian (2/10) Get that crybaby Christian a diaper!
Maven Vs. Goldust (5/10) Unique Championship. The Hardcore Belt was passed to 4 people during the show.
Edge Vs. Booker T (5/10)
Kane Vs. Kurt Angle (6/10) Great Match, but the big red machine didn't win.
Ric Flair Vs. Undertaker (7/10) Ric Flair gave it all in this match-up, but the deadman won.
Stone Cold Steve Austin Vs. Scott Hall (4/10) Scott Hall had Kevin Nash down at ringside to help him beat Austin, but to no avail.
WWF Tag Team Championship
Billy and Chuck Vs. Dudley Boyz Vs. Hardy Boyz vs. APA
Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock (10/10) Truly, The match of the year!
Triple Threat Match for the Women's Championship
Jazz Vs. Lita Vs. Trish Stratus (7/10)
Undisputed WWF Championship
Chris Jericho (w/ Stephanie McMahon) vs. Triple H (9/10)
Chris Jericho didn't deserve to be the undisputed champion in the first place. And that story with Stephanie and Triple H was annoying the hell out of me.
All in All, a good pay-per-view!
