I popped in a tape of WM XI last night. Some observations:

That crowd was mighty hot for everything.

Razor-Jarrett was a nice little match.

One of my favorite themes ever is the Allied Powers' music.

I appreciate Bob Backlund more now than I did then.

Watching the introduction of the Million $ Team was hilarious, especially Volkoff and IRS.

It was obvious that McMahon was expecting millions of people who've never seen the WWF before to buy this thing to see LT. When the Allied Powers were in the ring, McMahon was like "you think these guys are something, wait till you see their opponents." Then when Jacob and Eli came out, he was all like "LOOK, JERRY, TWINS! IDENTICAL TWINS! OH MY GOD!"

Also, I think WM XI's logo was the coolest looking of them all. Which segues nicely into this: is it just me, or does anyone else think WM XIX's logo looks really, really dull and generic?

My favorite part of WM XI was when 75% of the crowd was cheering for Sid to attack bland Diesel on the outside during the match with Michaels.

Agreed on the bland WM XIX logo.

Haven't they been re-using a lot of PPV logos. I know that Summerslam one hasn't changed in awhile.

WrestleMania's logo this year seems just about the same as all other years. I like the generic WrestleMania logo. They've changed the logos of all other PPV's at least two or three times. I hope they don't with WrestleMania.

Oh, and on WrestleMania XI. They really should have let Shawn Michaels and Diesel go on last. Even if they thought people bought the PPV for the LT/Bam Bam match. What were people going to do? Turn off they're TV's. They still have to pay the 35 bucks, so who cares? WrestleMania should let the wrestlers shine, not the celeberities.

But then Salt 'n Pepper wouldn't have been able to rap to conclude the show. Personally, they should have had Bob Backlund come out at the end and try to get them to enunciate better.

*mark-out mode on* HA! Hey, remember when one of the members tried to attack Bam Bam, and the other band members had to hold her back. I would have loved to see her actually get to Bigelow so he could have moonsaulted her ass. *mark-out mode off*

WrestleMania XI (from Hartford, of all places) is the closest that WrestleMania has ever gotten to a house show.

And Shawn jobbed to the shittiest powerbomb ever during that main event match. He sure bumped like a freak for Diesel.

Just because that wasn't the biggest show you've been to... okay, you were right. All I remembered from that show was LT/Bigelow.

The Rosemont Horizon wasn't much better.

I didn't mean in terms of arena size. I meant in terms of card quality and overall atmosphere.
