Widely recognized as one of the most breathtaking matches of all time, the Legend who is 16-0 at WrestleMania takes on the Icon known as Mr. WrestleMania. Undertaker and Shawn Michaels deliver an epic clash for the ages.

However WWE has presented far too many cards where the same feuds and matches that were dominating Wrestlemania 24 in Orlando, Florida. As a result fan interest in the likes of The Undertaker and Edge match had sky dived which is a shame because Undi' and Edge has proved to be bona fide superstars.
The disappointment doesn't end there as John Cena predictably defeated John 'bradshaw' Layfield in a poor opener. I presume Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn cannot remember their Wrestlemania 21 match which was abysmal. When I heard about this match I thought about their poor feud in 2005, my fears were confirmed when I seen them lock up in this match, Cena and Layfield have no chemistry between them and this showed.
Jeff Hardy fresh coming off his 60 day suspension for violating company policy (that is taking an unidentified substance or substances) defeated Montel Vontavious Porter in a disappointing scrap. Porter needs to show some improvement if he needs to be taken seriously and I predicted last year that he would be WWE champ in 1 year, how wrong was I.
But the highlight of this PPV for this reviewer was the awesome collision between long time friends Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho. They put on a superb match, much to the delight of the 8,000 fans in Omaha, Nebraska. I tell ya, this feud between them and Batista is the best feud in some years.
The rest of the PPV was strong as well.
Results from the show which was held in Omaha, Nebraska before a small crowd of 8,000: John Cena defeated JBL in a poor match.... John Morrison and The Miz downed CM Punk and Kane in a fine match.... Shawn Michaels downed Chris Jericho in a terrific match.... Mickie James defeated Melina and Beth Phoenix in a decent match.... The Undertaker defeated Edge via count out in a good match.... Jeff Hardy downed MVP in a lame match.... Triple H defeated Randy Orton in a very good cage match.
Overall Grade - B
