Did anyone catch the whole thing? I forgot it was on until I heard my girlfriend laughing at The Rock's Fruity Pebbles shirts joke. The only part I watched was HHH vs Undertaker. HHH enterence was Metallica "For Whom The Bell Tolls." The funniest thing I have ever saw was Undertakers enterence.
I'm glad that version wasn't on the DVD (which we just got with our 7-11 Slurpee points).
Some people on Facebook posted that they were watching Wrestlemania and I didn't have the heart to tell them it happened back in April.
I was very underwhelmed by this supposed "classic" match. It was horribly slow and plodding. HHH did way too much stalling and did a lot of sitting around when he should have been pinning UT. They were trying to sell that he had no remorse, but he sure took his time.

Taker played that -- or was genuine -- like he was wracked in suffering. The spinebuster off the stairs onto the table was sick and allowed Hunter to set the pace afterward.
Taker's performance (or survival) should have been saved for his last (WM) match. Instead of trainers, druids carry his barely living body back to the dark lands. And Taker is never seen again.

In terms of being able to differentiate in booking styles, it really isn't all that difficult to pick out certain storylines or angles that were most likely written by (or at least influenced by) Heyman's booking style.
