For a change I am agreeing with Spoonys review of it.

The Core match should of been a dark match and Bryan should of been on

I don't always completely agree with Spoony's TNA rants myself but he's spot on in that Wrestlemania review. Watching that was like reliving most of the conversation I had with my mate just after it finished.

Strongly disagree with that. If they're booking it for a two minute squash you have something but that's just down to bad booking. The Corre, supposedly, are a group of young renegades coming in and basically running the show. They're half way there in that they hold half the titles between them and the cowardly group attacks on people is good for building up heel heat for them in the way the NWO would hardly actually fight in the early days but were always THERE. The right people won, after X time of dodgy shenanigans and hitting and running the group of faces get together with the chance to corner them and get revenge. However, it should be after a 10-15 minute match of people using typical cowardly heel tactics before isolating the ring leader (Barrett) with (monster) to get the finish.

Essentially Wrestlemania featured hardly any of the in ring material, think match times totaled up just under 2 hours, and this ultimately is where some of the flaws come in and where Bryans match (which I was hyped for) should've been covered. Yes we got Rapping Regal but ultimately it was filler and the show came across as a double Raw episode rather than the grand spectacular.

Pursuant to WWE’s Concussion policy, the stunt of using a folded metal chair shot to the head is prohibited. Triple H and The Undertaker have both been fined for violating this policy at WrestleMania XXVII. WWE penalizes through fine and/or suspension for violation of this policy, which is unchanged and still in effect.

Didn't Brock Lesnar rupture something in Kurt Angels neck after a chair shot or was it the other way around.

Haven't watched WWE in years now but alot of my friends have said its gone back to the bad old days of playing to the kids and all the violence has been taken out of it.

Saying that did watch one of the old ECW PPV i found before they went bankrupt which brought back some fond memories. Its the one where RVD first unleadshed the Van Terminator :D

The end of the show's spotlight should be on the winner of the main event and not an old star who no longer wrestles and is about to sod off again (even if it is the Rock). Shows you WWE's lack of confidence in their latest stars.
I keep saying this to people

There are ways of watching/downloading it for free


When watching wrestling, prefer TV quality sound and picture and well, piracy is wrong in my opinion.



Besides, from what I've read and seen of WrestleMania - I'm not missing much.

Yeah I know its wrong, but they should make it cheaper before I start handing my cash over.
$5 for a PPV is great
$50 is taking the censored

(Also the quality of them is bloody great, I have yet to get a unwatchable one.Some are even in better than normal TV quality)

(Unless streamed)
TNA on the other hand have got it right there stuff is free to those of us in the UK with Freeveiw.
I just don't have a freeveiw box as id have my TV on even if theres nothing on. (That and most TV these days is arse)

just watched last nights impact and surprised at the quality of it, been a bit cack of late and nice to see them step up a little. It actually felt like there was a lot of wrestling in it for a change (unlike the other week where they only had one cheap match in the first hour)

I don't want to keep watching AVI files of it (which I currently do) I genuinely would rather just be able to have a regular night of the week when I know I could tune in and watch it on the good old tele at a set time.

A lot of them are online a few hours after being on TV
(Apart from Smackdown that tends to be online a few hours before)
You could always just watch them at a set time
