AR’s Truth: A promo that looked like it was going to be strong but in the middle it fizzled out too soon. The chants of boring was funny & I hope Cena turns heel. Yes I know it won’t happen but a man can dream.

The Shield comes out after the match & Dean Ambrose says enjoy the win now but At wrestlemania they will give them a beating that left them thinking what went wrong. Rollins & Reigns said pretty much the same thing.
AR’s Truth: honestly A fun match that you could lay out yourself but had all the elements in a tag match. Short & Sweet. 2.5-5* Match

AR’s Truth: A good back & forth match that they needed for this time slot. The finish was good & made sense. I predicted Ziggler & Langston would win the titles but now im not sure. Champions getting there revenge makes more sense. Good Match 3-5* Match
Shawn Michaels Comes Out & Does a promo about HHH-Lesnar Match but just before he gets into it HHH comes out. They hug but down to Business, HHH says he knows what he is doing. Shawn Says when he was heartbroken when he had to retire but if HHH loses Lesnar doesn’t care. He says Wrestling is HHH Life & trying to talk him out of the match. Shawn says he better kick Lesnar’s Ass at mania. Shawn says he is gonna be in the corner of HHH to watch him do it. Lesnar comes out with Heyman & heyman says lesnar has two words for them. He says Lesnar is going to beat HHH at mania. He does some cheap shots at HHH with being COO & Stephanie McMahon. He says HHH Just committed Professional Suicide.
AR’s Truth: A good back & forth promo by HHH & Shawn with it looking he was trying to talk him out of the match. They gave us a swerve which was cool. Heyman nailed it once again. Very good segment here.
The Miz is on commentary for this match.

Wade hits the Bull Hammer for the win.
Winner: Wade Barrett.
AR’s Truth: Good to see them build a feud that should be on the PPV but instead on the Preshow. That makes no sense to me as I noted on twitter. You put Brodus Clay & Tensi but Not a title match? Good to see Ryder on here also. Decent 2-5* Match.
Mark Henry Vs. Santino Marrella
SM starts up his comedy Routine but then starts up with some kicks but that just pisses him off. Henry hits a shoulder block followed by WSS for the win.
After the match Ryback comes out but Henry says hold on & threatens Henry. He says they have a no contact clause before mania but besides nobody wants to put hands on each other (Weird?) Ryback uses Santino as a dart that he throws at Henry. “I didn’t touch you stupid” by ryback.
AR’s Truth: A complete squash with a funny ending with Ryback saying he didn’t touch him stupid. Classic Line.
Alberto Del Rio Vs. Zeb Colter
Come on Dutch, ADR messes with him as colter looks scared. Swagger attacks Ricardo. ADr drop Kicks him throw the ropes. Zeb hits him with the crutch for the DQ. Swagger attacks the right knee of ADR. They beat him down with both crutches.
Winner: ADR via DQ.
AR’s Truth: That was expected & gave them really good heat going into mania. These give them believe they can win to causal fans but to “smart” fans it makes us believe ADR gets his revenge.
The Rock comes out & says the connection between him & the fans is the only reason he is here. He teases about being the president of the U.S. He says this Sunday this isn’t about passing the torch. He says cena cannot beat the rock & break the connection of the people.
AR’s truth: Same stuff with the rock. An decent build up but would have liked to seen more back & forth promos at each other. Other than that a good promo.
Chris Jericho Vs. Antonio Cesaro
They lock up but Then they get in pushing match. A trade of holds then Ac gets a head lock but CJ fights out not for long with a knockdown By AC. Chris fights back with chops then AC throws him In the corner. Out of nowhere Chris hits a drop kick followed by some chops. CJ hits a suplex followed by a botched Drop kick.

After the match Fandango attacks Jericho. He hits his Leg drop off the top rope twice to lay out Jericho.
AR’s Truth: A actual good & back forth match. I forgot through the match Cesaro was U.S Champion. He is a champion who Jobs? That doesn’t make any sense to me at all. A good win for Jericho but Fandango lays out Jericho to send a message. I really can’t wait for this match. Good Match though 3.5-5*.
Bella Twins Defeated Funkadactyls
The Undertaker comes out & He says that his title reign was good but at wrestlemania he will suffer. He said defeating Punk isn’t good enough so now sense he disrespecting Paul Bearer will pay. He said with the mindset that taker is in he might lose but punk won’t live to tell about it. We have the guys in a robe & with fire come out. A long moments with nothing happening then they have Paul Heyman dress up like Paul Bearer come out with the URN. Taker walks with a vengeance but he attacks the Guys in the Robes. They brawl then Punk hits taker with the URN over & over again. Punk takes the lid off the URN then lets the Ashes out of it while he pours it on Taker. He stands over him with the Urn in hand to end the show.
AR’s Truth: It was a good promo by taker but it was cut off to early. There was a long pause with the waiting of Heyman which hurt it to a degree but not much. Punk laying out taker was the right choice. I gave my prediction & the blog will be up later this week with my pick of the winner of this match but Punk came out with an interview saying he would rather wrestle Steve Austin or John Cena at mania. That’s disrespect with taker & the chances of putting a guy over like that isn’t likely.
Overall this was a good show/ way to send off to wrestlemania. Not too much wrestling but what we saw was good with one bad match. There was a lot of Segments or talking but im a fan of it. Id give it a 6.5-10* rating show.
