I thought it was better than Wrestlemania's 25-28 but that's not saying much. They haven't exactly been hitting out of the park over the last several years with Wrestlemaina. The last one that was good all the way through was mania 20. It's pretty sad that it's been ten years since the show has delivered.

I'm glad that the fans love for Bryan, the departure of Punk and the flop of Batista's return has Vince rethinking things for mania. I wonder if this will finally be the wake up call he's needed for the last decade.

Should have prefaced that I guess I haven't seen the last few so probably shouldn't have made that conclusion. Although I did read how bad 29 was.

I just remember how bad IX & XI were top to bottom with no memorable matches from each. Just being remembered as the toga WM & that one w/ Lawrence Taylor in the main event. Were the last few really worse than those?

Two months ago I was all about watching Wrestlemania but I decided last week not to bother.

I already forgot Batista came back. Goddamn what a horrible return that was.

WM 30 is shaping up to be bland as hell. This seems like a possible card the WWE could do to salvage Mania :

Batista vs. Orton vs. Lesnar (WWE Title)

Bryan vs HHH

Taker vs Sting

Bray Wyatt vs Cena

Rollins vs Reigns vs Ambrose (US Title)

The Usos vs Rybaxel vs Rhode Bros vs Real Americans Four Way Ladder Match for Tag Titles

Big E vs Sheamus (Intercontinental Title)

AJ Lee vs Naomi (Divas Title)

It will be Taker/Lesnar this year. There's no way they re-introduce Sting to the wrestling fans and then a month later have him lose his first big match back. At least with Lesnar fans will buy that he could end the streak. If they did it with Sting this year there's no way anyone would believe he could possibly do it. If Sting does sign and perform with the WWE, which we've got no confirmation that he has yet, he will need to be built up as a threat to Taker. Next year would be better since they'll have time to give him a few big wins and let him look like a legit challenger to end the streak.

People seem to forget that Sting has been gone from mainstream wrestling for 13 years now. His return needs to be handled properly. They just can't throw him out there and have him job to Taker right away. A lot of fans now don't even know who he is and there's many more who would need to re-familiarise themselves with Sting since he's been away for so long.

Bad idea to waste Taker/Sting this soon. Let Sting appear at this years mania, after Taker wins, Sting comes out the the ring, doesn't say a word and just points his baseball bat at Taker. This will be Sting's way of issuing a challenge for next year's mania then they can properly build him up for Taker.

Exactly how do those idiots think Cena vs. Bray Wyatt is going to draw money? Cena vs. Taker! Goddamn. Fuck Lesnar

No because then people would get mad the Cena lost to some "old timer".

God I hate the normal wrestling crowd.

There's no reason to think that Cena vs Wyatt can't draw money. Cena is still the WWE's biggest draw and money maker. Wyatt has been pushed good over the last few months and is the strongest booked and most over heel in the company right now. That match will certainly be a bigger draw than Orton/Batista.

As for Taker/Cena, I think the two main reasons it hasn't been done is because Vince has no idea who would go over or they're saving it for Taker's last match.
