Alfonso's WrestleMania review: Too much of everything, except quality wrestling

The Rock at WrestleMania XXVII in Atlanta, GA,

I may not have called all the winners and losers correctly, but in some ways, my WrestleMania predictions were as accurate as anyone’s. I expected WrestleMania XXVII to be high on spectacle, and low on match quality. And, unfortunately, I was quite right.

I really liked Miz’s hype video before the match. It was his path to the WWE title mixed with other great moments by former WWE champions. Cena’s entrance was way over the top. It involved a choir and a voice over by DMX (I think). Need I say more? This was a tale of two matches. The first match ended in a count-out with Miz retaining...

Wrestlemania 27 predictions: The Undertaker vs. Triple H


Alfonso: The only safer bet than predicting a John Cena victory at WrestleMania is predicting an Undertaker victory. There’s little reason to believe the ‘Taker vaunted streak won’t be extended to 19-0 this year—particularly against an opponent who is essentially a part of WWE management, and as such, appreciates as much...
