From The Trailer Park
Thoughts on Wrestlemania XX
March 15, 2004 by Billy Bob
Well this is Billy Bob back in the trailerpark and ready for another column filled with fun and excitement! OK maybe not to much excitement, lets just get it started with a little bit of Wrestlemania Thoughts! I'm only going to comment on the matches I feel where worth getting commented on.
OK lets see here, the tag matches for Raw and Smackdown. I was pretty disappointed with both. The main reason for that is that they had both tag teams keep the titles, the problem with that is they both suck. RVD and Booker-T don't even get popped when they come out anymore together, thats how lame they are. If WWE is having these two keep the Raw tag titles, than we all better brace ourselves for a big push in the next coming Raws, until WWE finds out what a horrible idea it is, who knows, maybe it could work. On the Smackdown side, could the crowd of been any quiter when Scotty went for the worm? I don't know, maybe it just seems that way becuase a couple of years ago when he did it, he blew the roof of the fricken place, every single person in that arena use to say it, W! O! R! M! HOO! HOO! HOOO!!!. I think there may of been about 7 people doing it this time. Oh well, the point is, 2 Cool is washed up and they have no business being tag champs, The Bashams should have won this one. (Tag Matches = disapointment)
The cruiserweight open in my opinion was great, all guys gave it there best. I have to bring this up - WASN'T IT HILARIOUS WHEN THE ULTIMO DRAGON SLIPPED....TWICE?!! I seriously did get a good laugh when that happened, I mean he didn't slip a little on the entrance, this guy's whole body fell. I think he made up for it with some great skills in the ring though. I was going to be pretty pissed if Rey won the match, im so glad Chavo kept the title. Overall, I thought it was pretty damn good, and how about that shooting star press from Kidman? Pretty cool stuff. (Cruiserweight Open=impressive)
Jericho and Christian put on a solid match, I liked it a lot. Im very glad they spiced up the storyline turning Trish heel, she has been a face for so long, its nice to see her playing this role. (Jericho vs Christian=impressive)
Orton, Flair and Batista vs The Rock and Mick Foley was an OK match. There was surprisingly a lot of good in ring action, Flair took a nice back bump outside of the ring, Foleys wrestling looked good as well. Not much else to say about this match. (Orton/Flair/Batista vs Rock/Foley = OK)
Brock vs Goldberg was certainly and interesting match. The fans really let both guys have it with several chants - THIS MATCH SUCKS! / YOU SOLD OUT! / LOTS OF BOOS/ NAH NAH HEY HEY GOOD BYE!. This was the most disappointing match on the entire card. I was really looking foward to a specacular showdown between these two great competitors, what I got was a below average match, that the fans hated. (GOLDBERG/ BROCK = very disappointing)
The match I was most anticipating was Undertaker vs Kane. I waited anxiously for the Undertakers entrance, I saw Taker in his long coat and hat! It was amazing! Than I saw him in the light.......and....it...was...The Undertaker. The Badass Undertaker. The biker....except.....he had...black shaggy hair. Wow, was I the only pissed off fan? An unbelievable buildup, a great concept, great storyline, but it turned out lame. This storylines entertainment appeal was all circled around the fact that fans wanted to see the old Taker. Not the badass biker Taker rolling his eyes with shaggy black hair. (TAKER/KANE = very disappointing)
It was pretty funny to see Molly with a skullet, thats about all I have to say for the womens title match, oh yea and im glad Victoria kept the belt. (MOLLY/VICTORIA = entertaining)
Benoit vs HHH vs HBK. This match certainly exeeded all of my expectations, not only being the best on the card, but in my opinion one of the best matches this year. All 3 men wrestled their guts out, the suplex from HBK AND HHH to Benoit on that table was awesome! I didn't think I wanted to see it so badly until it happened, Benoit won the title! Without this match Wrestlemania would of been a complete disappointment! (HBK/BENOIT/HHH = OUTSANDING)
I must say Benoit and Guerrero in the ring celebrating was truly a great site to behold. Both man had been shoved down in WCW and their whole wrestling careers becuase they where told they where to small. And now they where standing on the grandest stage of them all, both having world titles, they couldn't of eneded Wrestlemania any better. The overall show was OK in my mind, nothing to special. Not as good as I thought it would be.
