WWE had potential to either put on an event for fans to remember for a long time or make it a forgettable WrestleMania on Sunday.
The potential for either possibility were equal. Fortunately for pro wrestling fans, the product actually exceeded expectations. The road to WrestleMania, mainly on Raw left a lot to be desired. Vince McMahon and co-wiped any sour tastes of mediocrity that fans may have been left with heading into wrestling's Super Bowl.
Undertaker back and better:
After what was one of his most unimpressive outings at WrestleMania in a long time last year, the Deadman returned to the grandest stage of them all ready and in better shape, probably in years considering in the past when he did have classics against Triple H and Shawn Michaels he didn't have to get carried out of the ring. Reports came in today that he's on to work at least one more WrestleMania, next year in his hometown crowd at AT&AT stadium. Also, props to WWE for making Wyatt look strong, even in defeat (for his second straight year at WrestleMania).
Sting and Triple H put on an enjoyable match:
This wasn't a classic, but for what it was I enjoyed it, and it's evident WWE went all out to make it memorable. The crowd and anyone else who watched this event enjoyed D-Generation X and nWo's interference as it helped to tell the WWE vs WCW story in the feud.
The Rock and Ronda Rousey:
This was just awesome. I was afraid we were going to see another Authority promo from Raw, but this was different. It teases the idea of a mixed tag match with The Rock and Ronda Rousey vs. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. If nothing else, this was just pure gold for sports entertainment.
WWE delivered Sunday. It had its low points, but they weren't that low when they had them, and thankfully the high points were more here.
