The 411: This WrestleMania had a lot of ups and downs. While some of the downs were bad, the ups were really, really good. You got “special moments” with Piper’s Pit and Hogan’s appearances, Angle and HBK rocked the house in a MOTY candidate, Rey and Eddie, Orton and Taker and the Money in the Bank were great and while the World Title matches weren’t all that spectacular, they did make two new stars. Great effort and a thumbs up here.
Final Score:  7.5   [ Good ]  legend
