Wrestlemania 26

Glendale, Arizona

March 28th, 2010

 

Unified WWE Tag Team Title / World Tag Team Title Match
The Big Show & The Miz (c) vs. John Morrison & R-Truth

3 minutes and it wasn’t much of anything. 

1 / 5

Triple Threat Match
Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase

A fine triple threat match but it was clear as day Orton was the only one with a chance to win. It had its spots though and the crowd was behind Orton. 

2.5 / 5

Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Matt Hardy vs. Kane vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Christian vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Evan Bourne vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger

Ten guys here but not everyone really had their moments. Henry seemed to be in there then disappeared for good. It had its moments though but was shorter than expected. Swagger winning was whatever. This wasn’t the best MITB but it was fine. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Triple H vs. Sheamus

This was a fine match but nothing insanely memorable. The crowd was into it and behind HHH. I really liked HHH pulling his finisher out of nowhere and that being the finish. 

2.75 / 5

Singles Match
CM Punk (w/Luke Gallows & Serena) vs. Rey Mysterio

The crowd was into this and both guys were great against each other but only got 6 minutes. It was good for what it was but at 6 minutes they can’t do much.

2.5 / 5

No Holds Barred Match (Special Referee: Bruce Hart)
Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon

A horrendous match and barely a match as it is. This was Bret just beating on Vince for the help of his family. Brets injuries meant too that he couldn’t take any form of a bump so he just stood around for the parts when his family beat Vince. This dragged at 11 minutes. 

.5 / 5

World Heavyweight Title Match
Chris Jericho (c) vs. Edge

A good match that got better as it went. Started slow but they built it up and had some close falls throughout. Liked them trying each others finishers and Edge selling his leg. 

3 / 5

Ten Man Tag Team Match
Beth Phoenix, Eve Torres, Gail Kim, Kelly Kelly & Mickie James vs. Alicia Fox, Layla, Maryse, Michelle McCool & Vickie Guerrero

Crowd was dead for this and it was awful. 

.5 / 5

WWE Heavyweight Title Match
Batista (c) vs. John Cena

A really fun match and the crowd was super into it. Close falls here with each guy kicking out of finishers and a lot of big spots from each guy. 

3.75 / 5

WrestleMania Streak vs. Career No Disqualification Match
The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels

A fantastic match but not to the level of their match the year before. This had a good story and emotions throughout it with Shawn wanting Taker to earn it then having him end it. The table spot was great here too and for a no DQ match they kept it rather tame. The close falls here worked great and we all knew Taker was winning from the start. 

4.25 / 5
