WWE PPV REPORTS
4/5 Twilling's WrestleMania 25 Live Coverage: Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels, Triple H vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championship, Edge vs. John Cena vs. Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship
Apr 5, 2009 - 10:01 PM


By Rich Twilling

Aired live on pay-per-view
Houston, Texas at Reliant Stadium


Pre-PPV Match

1. Primo and Carlito defeated John Morrison and The Miz in a lumberjack match to capture the WWE and World Tag Titles. After a few great near falls, Primo reversed Morrison into a Backstabber to win the match.

Twill’s Two Cents: I’m very disappointed this was not on the main show, but I am guessing we get thirty minutes plus from both Triple H vs. Randy Orton and Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker.

Pay-Per-View

Footage aired of many WWE superstars talking about what they thought was the biggest moment in the WrestleMania history. A great segment with footage of Hogan vs. Andre, Hogan vs. Warrior, Bret vs. Owen, Bret vs. Shawn, and Hogan vs. Rock was shown...

Howard Finkel welcomed everyone to the 25th anniversary of WrestleMania. Nicole Scherzinger sang America the Beautiful in the center of the ring. The stage had a huge star and logo along with five vertical screens. Jim Ross welcomed us to the show. Justin Roberts explained the rules of the Money in the Bank ladder match...

1. CM Punk defeated Mark Henry (with Tony Atlas), MVP, Finlay (with Hornswoggle), Shelton Benjamin, Kofi Kingston, Christian, and Kane in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match in 14:25. Michael Cole acted as the host as he expressed his gratitude to be working with Hall of Famers Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross.

There were many fans at ringside with Pepsi logo signs for Punk. As soon as the bell rang, Kane and Henry found themselves in the ring with everyone else on the outside. Kofi was impressive early dropkicking the ladder into Christian and Benjamin. Henry and Kane climbed the ladder first but were stopped by everyone else.

Outside of the ring, every man hit some type of suicide dive onto each other on the floor. Shelton climbed a ladder on the floor and hit a Swanton onto everyone. He was lucky he didn’t kill himself because the landing wasn’t great. Henry climbed the ropes but Finlay hit him with a shillegleh.

Hornswoggle took out a little ladder and brought it into the ring. He climbed on top of an injured Henry at the top rope and hit a Tadpole Splash onto everyone on the floor. Kofi and Finlay fought in the ring as Finlay used Horny’s ladder as a weapon. In a sweet spot, Henry was trying to open a ladder, but before he could do so, Kofi climbed it and nearly grabbed the briefcase. Henry pushed him off, caught him, and hit the World’s Strongest Slam on a ladder.

As Henry climbed the ladder, MVP hit him with a ladder from the floor. He then lodged it in between the ladder in the ring resting on the top rope. MVP and Shelton had a cool exchange that ended with MVP hitting a powerbomb on Shelton as he jumped on him from the lodged ladder.

Christian and Punk fought on the lodged ladder and Christian hit the Unprettier from the ladder to the mat. Shelton walked the ladder from the floor to knock MVP off. Shelton put the lodged ladder up next to the other one. Christian and Shelton did the tipping ladder spot, but Christian put his foot on the top rope, balanced himself and put himself in position to grab the briefcase.

Punk springboarded himself to the ladder and was able to prevent Christian from grabbing the briefcase. Kane halted Christian as well and chokeslammed him from the ladder. Kane and Punk were the last two on the ladder and Punk kicked Kane off. He then grabbed the briefcase, to a chorus of boos, for the win...

Twill’s Two Cents: Awesome match with a lot of impressive spots and a great way to start the show. I guarantee not many people had Punk winning for the second year in a row; hopefully if he gets another title run, it goes better this time.

A video aired for Fan Axxess. Lillian Garcia introduced Kid Rock. Rock performed for what seemed like ever...

Twill’s Two Cents: There was recently an episode of Family Guy where Peter cut away to Conway Twitty (an old FG gag) and Twitty sang for three or four minutes. This is what this felt like. It was the damn Super Bowl halftime show. The tag title match could have been on the show during that time.

About an hour later, some of the divas came down to the ring for the battle royal. Tiffany danced with Rock for a little while. The match began before Justin Roberts finished his announcements. Santino is in the match but Mae Young and Candice are at ringside...

Twill’s Two Cents: Wow, no entrances or explanation as to why Santino is in the match. Cole tried to let everyone know who was in but it was difficult.

2. Santino Marella won a 25 diva battle royal to win the title of Miss WrestleMania in 6:00. Beth took over midway through the match and started eliminating everyone. Jackie Gayda, Torrie Wilson, Molly Holly, and Sunny all came and went without much fanfare. The last five were Michelle McCool, Mickie James, Melina, Beth, and Santino. Mickie and Michelle eliminated each other. Predictably, Santino pushed both Beth and Melina out of the ring.

After the match, the announcers did not recognize Santino. Candice and Justin Roberts came in to crown him. He said his name was “Santina Marella,” Santino’s twin sister from Italy. He danced in celebration as Beth looked on disgusted...

Twill’s Two Cents: Wow, that was underwhelming. They did not even have ring entrances or anything. Very disappointing and even with Santino winning, that was forgettable.

Cole introduced Chris Jericho vs. Jimmy Snuka, Roddy Piper, and Ricky Steamboat. Extensive footage aired of The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke being in and then pulling out of WrestleMania. Jericho’s performances over the past several weeks was shown too with focus put on Ric Flair’s mic work...

Mickey Rourke was shown in his seat although I’m not sure exactly where he was sitting. Jericho made his entrance and I thought he was looking at Rourke but I couldn’t tell...

3. Chris Jericho defeated Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka, and Ricky Steamboat (with Ric Flair) in a handicapped elimination match in 8:56. Steamboat, Snuka, and Piper made their entrance to the stage, and they walked down to the ring with Flair to his music. Rourke was sitting in the aisle close to the ring but you would have thought he would get a better seat.

Piper began the match with Jericho. Piper’s shirt said “Old School’s Cool, WM 0-25” on the back. Piper was slow on offense and even got caught in the ropes sending Jericho to the floor. Snuka tagged in and Jericho bumped for him like a pinball. Steamboat tagged in and hit a chop from the top rope and two deep arm drags.

Snuka tagged back in and Jericho locked in the Walls of Jericho. Snuka tapped out.

Jericho eliminated Snuka with the Walls of Jericho.

Piper came in and Jericho was able to hit an ensiguiri and score the three count.

Jericho eliminated Piper by pinfall.

Steamboat hit a high crossbody from the top rope for a nearfall. Steamboat was thrown to the floor but skinned the cat. He then backdropped Jericho to the floor just after Jericho knocked Flair from the apron. Steamboat springboarded over the top onto Jericho on the floor. He scored a nearfall in the ring.

Jericho came back and hit the bulldog. He missed a Lionsault. He then locked in the Walls and Steamboat applied a small package ala WrestleMania III for a two count. Jericho hit the Codebreaker for the win...

Jericho pinned Steamboat with the Codebreaker.

Twill’s Two Cents: That was fun and unspectacular. Steamboat looked great and the other legends did not embarrass themselves. Jericho sold like a champion for the legends and should be commended for this performance.

After the match, Flair looked pissed. He took his jacket off and attacked Jericho. Jericho quickly hit a Codebreaker on Flair and threw him out of the ring. Jericho grabbed a microphone and called himself the best in the world. He then demanded that Mickey Rourke apologize to him. He said he would slap Rourke in the face and called him a coward.

Rourke stood up and came slowly made his way to the ring. He took off his coat and hat. He was wearing a leather vest and looked to be in pretty good shape. Rourke danced around like a boxer (he used to be one). He hit jab to Jericho’s face and Jericho backed off. Jericho went into boxing mode and Rourke knocked him down with a left hook. Flair came back into the ring and celebrated with Rourke as Flair’s music played...

Twill’s Two Cents: Again, that was not exactly a memorable “WrestleMania moment.” Jericho won the match, went down, and left the ring unceremoniously. Rourke did in a few seconds what four legends could not do.

A commercial aired for the National Guard. The announcers introduced a video package for Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy...

4. Matt Hardy defeated Jeff Hardy in an Extreme Rules Match in 13:14. Jeff’s face paint was purple, white, and black, and it went all the way down his neck. JR said Jeff’s reaction from the crowd was the loudest we had heard all night. The announcers argued over whether or not Matt burned down Jeff’s house and killed his dog. Cole called Jeff’s dog “his rock.” Wow.

Jeff started the match by hitting Matt with a WrestleMania poster. He missed poetry in motion off of a chair but recovered to go for the Whisper in the Wind. Matt hit Jeff with a chair. Matt scored the first nearfall after hitting Jeff with a wet dry vacuum. Matt hit a Side Effect on a chair for another nearfall.

Matt continued the onslaught by twisting Jeff around the ringpost. He then grabbed a table and the crowd erupted. Jeff came back and hit a mule kick, sending Matt awkwardly into the steel steps. Jeff grabbed a crutch and a kendo stick and used the latter to beat on Matt. Jeff put a garbage can over Matt’s head, hit him with the crutch, and hit the corner delayed dropkick.

JR talked about Bret vs. Owen and Undertaker vs. Kane as previous WrestleMania brother vs. brother feuds. Jeff missed the Swanton. Matt hit the Twist of Fate for a two count. Matt went to the top, but Jeff caught him and hit a superplex from the second rope. He then hit Matt in the head with a steel chair.

Jeff laid Matt on a table and placed a chair on top of him. He then grabbed a second table and placed it on top of the first table with Matt in between. He went to the top rope and hit a splash through the tables. He almost overshot it. Jeff rolled Matt in the ring and covered him, but Matt put his foot on the ropes before the referee hit three.

Jeff grabbed two ladders and put them in the ring. He set up a chair and propelled himself over it and hit a leg drop. Jeff set up both ladders and the taller one was closer to Matt. He climbed the shorter one and springboarded over the taller ladder, but missed. Matt hit the Twist of Fate with Jeff’s head in the steel chair for the clean win...

Twill’s Two Cents: It was definitely physical and full of big spots, but it still fell flat a bit and that was due to the buildup. I enjoyed it though and both men are definitely going to be sore tomorrow.

Matt celebrated to the back as Jeff recuperated in the ring. A commercial aired for Legends of WrestleMania the video game. I always wondered when seeing those commercials why they did not use the title belt after the winged WWF Championship...

Randy Orton was shown mentally preparing backstage. Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes were with him and nobody said a word...

Lillian Garcia announced the Intercontinental Championship match. JBL made his entrance first and cut a promo badmouthing Texas. He said he would produce the most dominant victory in the history of WrestleMania and head back to New York City and his famous wife...

Twill’s Two Cents: That was weak.

Mysterio made his entrance and was dressed like Heath Ledger’s Joker. He even handed out joker cards to fans on his way to the ring. Lillian handled the title match in ring introductions...

5. Rey Mysterio defeated JBL to win the Intercontinental Championship in :21. JBL kicked Mysterio in the head before the referee rang the bell. He had to keep JBL back to make sure Mysterio was okay. Mysterio surprised JBL with the 619 and top rope splash for the quick victory. King had it timed at :21 and so did I...

Twill’s Two Cents: Not many people were looking forward to the match, so that was fine for what it was. Mysterio’s first WrestleMania in three years was hardly all that memorable.

Mysterio celebrated to the back. JBL sat in the ring with his head in his hands. He then grabbed the microphone and said he has something to say. After some delay, he yelled, “I quit!” He seemed almost shocked and on his way up the ramp, he screamed at the fans for booing him...

Twill’s Two Cents: JR mockingly said “that was historic.” Sure, I guess so.

Houston was shown as was Carl Edwards (NASCAR driver) in the crowd...

The announcers introduced Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker and the video played...

6. The Undertaker defeated Shawn Michaels in 30:43. Some ominous Undertaker sounding music played but it was Michaels was risen from the stage on a balcony looking apparatus. He was wearing the white trench coat and hat. His regular music then played and he made his normal entrance.

Taker also rose from underneath the stage. His entrance was complete with smoke and fire. For the first time tonight with Taker coming to the ring, the screens looked absolutely huge. Michaels and Taker had their eyes locked on each other as Taker slowly made his way to the ring.

Twill’s Two Cents: I guess with Kid Rock and Undertaker’s entrance, there was no time for the tag title match on the show.

The match started surprisingly with both men brawling. Taker established a slow pace to his dominating offense, meaning they will probably get a long time. Taker hit Old School, but then missed a running big boot into the corner. Shawn began to work on the leg and knee of Taker.

The crowd started a back and forth chant. Michaels locked in his version of the figure four. Cole said Flair taught it to him. He obviously didn’t teach him too well. Taker came back despite the injury to his leg. Taker hit snake eyes and a big running boot, showing his leg was okay. He hit a leg drop for a two count.

Taker tried a chokeslam, but Michaels locked in a Crossface. Taker was on his side though and not on his front. Taker stood up with the hold still applied and hit a side slam for a long two count. Shawn came back with two inverted atomic drops and a closeline. Shawn went to the top, but Taker sat up.

Shawn jumped at Taker and was caught in a chokeslam position. Shawn countered and almost hit Sweet Chin Music, but Taker dropped to his back. Shawn tried to apply a figure four again, but Taker locked in the Devil’s Gate. Michaels was able to get to the ropes. Taker remained on the offensive until he missed the apron leg drop.

Michaels went to the top and tried the modified moonsault. Taker just swatted him away and Michaels hit the floor with a sickening thud. Taker was lying in the ring as the referee tended to Shawn. Taker took a chance with the over the top rope suicide dive. Michaels pulled the cameraman in his way and Taker hit the floor head first. That was scary.

Michaels rose to his feet and dragged the referee into the ring trying to get him to count The Undertaker out. The crowd booed but Taker started to come to. Shawn went to his knees and Taker struggled into the ring at the count of nine. Shawn set him up for Sweet Chin Music but Taker hit a huge chokeslam. Michaels kicked out.

Michaels and Taker traded attempts at Sweet Chin Music and a chokeslam respectively. Michaels hit the move but could not make the cover, which meant Taker would kick out, which he did. Taker hit the Last Ride and Michaels kicked out. Taker was frustrated, the crowd woke up, and JR was at his best.

Taker went to the top rope and missed an elbow. Taker threw Michaels to the floor, but Michaels skinned the cat, but left him in position for the Tombstone. Taker hit it but Michaels kicked out again. Michaels countered another Tombstone attempt into a DDT, but neither men could move.

Michaels went to the top and hit the elbow, but could not make the cover. He used the ropes to pull himself up and he tuned up the band. He hit Sweet Chin Music again but did not cover immediately. Once he did, Taker kicked out. Holy shit this is awesome. Right when I typed that, the crowd started chanting it.

Both men rose to their feet. Michaels hit knife edge chops and Taker hit right hands. Both men just kept feeding each other until Taker kicked Michaels in the face. Shawn slithered out of a Tombstone and hit more chops. Taker threw Shawn into the corner but ran into a big boot.

Michaels went to the top rope and attempted a moonsault onto Taker. Taker caught him and hit another Tombstone. This time, Shawn stayed down and Taker scored the pinfall to go to 17-0 at WrestleMania...

Twill’s Two Cents: Wow. That was absolutely unbelievable and regardless of how high your expectations were for the match, I guarantee you these two men exceeded those expectations. Given the streak, the outcome was never in doubt, in my opinion, but the multiple nearfalls were amazingly well done. Great match and both men deserve the title of Mr. WrestleMania tonight.

After the match, Taker posed in the ring but staggered around as “17-0” was shown on the big screen...

A commercial aired for the WWE Draft in eight days...

Evander Holyfield was shown at ringside and the announcers introduced the video package for the triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship...

Chavo Guerrero wheeled Vickie Guerrero down to the ring. Edge made his entrance first and I did not notice him looking over at Vickie. Show came down next to no reaction. JR said Show weighed in at 485 pounds tonight. As Show entered the ring, Edge did shoot a glare at Vickie...

Cena’s old theme music hit and about 100 lookalikes came out and lined up on both sides of the aisle. They all did the “you can’t see me” gesture and Cena came out to his current theme music. The introductions were made with all three men in the ring...

Twill’s Two Cents: I liked the entrance. It wasn’t as good as his past ones, but it was solid.

7. John Cena defeated Edge and Big Show in a triple threat match to win the World Heavyweight Championship in 14:43. Cena went after both men, but ended up on his back. Edge tried to get Show to work with him, but Show crotched him over the top rope instead. Cena had Edge up for the Attitude Adjuster but Show kicked him in the face. Edge went to the floor.

With Show on the floor, Edge dropkicked the ring steps into his knees. Cena followed up with the leg drop over the back of Show’s head. Edge and Cena fought in the ring for a few moments before Show reentered. Chavo interfered and Cena gave him an Attitude Adjuster.

Show got caught in the ropes ala Andre the Giant. Absolutely no one tried to help him out. The referee just stood there. Edge and Cena went at it. Edge speared Vickie on accident and Chavo broke her fall. Show got loose and butt splashed both men in the corner. Show chokeslammed Edge and hit a right hand on Cena.

Show went to the floor to get Edge. Edge hit a DDT on Big Show on the floor. Edge set up the ring steps and propelled off of them at Show. They went through the retaining wall and into the crowd. Cena was still out from the big right hand. Edge grabbed Cena, rolled him into the ring, and covered him for a two count.

Edge tried a spear but Cena countered with a leg trip and STF. With Edge reaching for the ropes, Show pulled Cena out of the ring. He then tried a second rope Yokozuna like splash and missed. Edge and Cena teamed together to suplex Show. Cena and Edge worked together again to knock Show over the top rope. Edge then hit Cena with a big boot for a two count.

Cena went to the top rope. Show pushed him from behind and into a spear from Edge. Edge went for the cover and Show pulled him from the ring. Edge locked in a sleeper on Show, but Show backed him into the corner. Cena picked up both men for the Attitude Adjuster. Edge rolled off but he hit it on Show. He then hit it on Edge onto Show. He covered Show for the win...

After the match, Cena celebrated with the title. He then went into the crowd with the title and celebrated. The replays were shown and Cena was back in the ring with the title...

Twill’s Two Cents: Unfortunately, this followed Michaels vs. Undertaker, but all three men worked hard and had a pretty solid match. The spot at the end with Cena lifting both men into the Attitude Adjuster was awesome. Good match that will be forgotten probably by the end of the night.

A commercial aired for WrestleMania XXVI in Arizona...

The 2009 Hall of Fame inductees all came out to the stage to be announced to the crowd. Austin stood in the middle of the pack in a suit. He left the stage, was gone for a few moments, and then his music hit. Austin rode out to the ring on his ATV. He rode back up the ramp and then went in reverse back to the ring.

Austin was now wearing an old school Austin 3:16 shirt. He drank a bunch of beers in the ring and then went to ringside to have a beer with JR. “I’m not driving!” JR exclaimed. He put on JR’s hat and smiled huge. He rode slowly back up the ramp to say goodbye one last time. “We’ll never forget the night the Austin Era began and we’ll never forget the night it ended,” said JR...

Twill’s Two Cents: I actually preferred this to having him hit a Stunner on anyone. Austin deserved his own moment and I loved that he had a beer with JR at the announce table. That was a very special moment and a nice goodbye from Austin.

The video aired for Triple H vs. Randy Orton...

Triple H was shown walking backstage. He approached Vince and Shane McMahon. They did not say a word and just traded looks. H patted Vince on the shoulder and walked toward the gorilla position...

Lillian Garcia was trying to explain that Triple H would lose the title if he was counted out or disqualified, but Randy Orton’s music hit...

Twill’s Two Cents: The music guy has been quick on the trigger all night. It’s a little thing, but I thought that screwed up Orton’s entrance a bit.

8. Triple H defeated Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship in 23:33. H came out with his sledgehammer and then threw it into some glass. It was cool because I couldn’t tell the glass was there. Orton’s entrance took a long time as he slowly paced himself to the ring and the announcers put over how evil he was...

Mixed reaction for Orton and loud cheers for Triple H. The announcers put over H losing if he is disqualified. King then said, “Orton cannot win either if he is disqualified.” If King was calling the perfect show, that ended it. Triple H went after Orton early but Orton hit the RKO within the first minute. He went for the punt kick but missed. Triple H hit the Pedigree and both men were down.

H went to the floor and poured water on himself in an attempt to recuperate from the RKO. He then attacked Orton, who pleaded for him to “Wait!” H hit a big knee drop to the back of Orton’s head. He followed up with a neckbreaker and Orton rolled to the floor. Orton reversed an Irish whip and sent Triple H into the ring steps.

He then whipped Triple H into the crowd. Orton jumped in the ring and told the referee to count. Triple H made it back into the ring but Orton hit a series of boots and stomps. He hit a knee to the back of Triple H’s head. He then mounted H and hit a series of right hands. Triple H countered a chinlock with a back suplex.

They exchanged vicious right hands. Orton hit a slingshot on Triple H onto the top turnbuckle but H followed up with a huge closeline. After some Orton offense, H hit a spinebuster. Going for the Pedigree, Orton countered with the headlock back breaker. H came back and went to the top rope, but Orton dropkicked him as he was coming back.

Orton again went for the punt kick but Triple H caught his leg, stared at Orton, and flipped him over the top rope. Triple H almost busted a television monitor over Orton’s head, but the referee reminded him that a disqualification would cost him the title. So, he tried to Pedigree him through the announce table, but Orton backdropped H onto the Spanish announce table, which did not break.

Twill’s Two Cents: The television monitor would have been a DQ, but a pedigree through a table would have been okay? By the way, is the crowd dead or what?

Orton pulled H from the table and hit a DDT on the floor. He stepped back into the ring and the referee counted. The referee counted pretty damn slow and H reentered the ring at the count of nine. Orton stomped the shit out of Triple H. The referee was then accidentally hit, but Orton finished him off by throwing Triple H into him.

Orton went to the floor and grabbed a sledgehammer. Upon reentering the ring, H punted him. He then hit him with a sledgehammer but the referee didn’t see it. He hit a bunch of right hands and I thought the referee was going to disqualify him. He then hit the Pedigree for the win...

After the match, Triple H looked over Orton as fireworks lit up the stage. The “right after the show” video aired...

Twill’s Two Cents: What the hell was that? Sure, they went 23 minutes, but I was bored with that. The crowd was dead, there was no appearance by Vince, Shane, Stephanie, or Legacy, and Triple H scored the very unspectacular win? I thought something was going to happen with the referee reversing the decision because of the sledgehammer, but nothing. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the decision reversed tomorrow on Raw.

What did you think of the show? I will have plenty to say when Jason and I get together for a post WrestleMania audio show. Feel free to send me your show thoughts for possible inclusion in a Dot Net mailbag. I can be reached at dotnetrich@gmail.com.
