USO retains. Cesaro turns.

Bryan over HHH

Shield over Kane/New Age Outlaws

Cesaro wins the ARMBAR

Cena over Wyatt

AJ wins

Brock ends the Streak for no good fucking reason

Bryan wins the title after a numerous amount of bullshit through out the night.

Network feed was pretty bad.

I was watching via Network on my PC and it was flawless all night.

Brock beating Taker was a punch to the gut... rest of the show was near enough flawless.

Outstanding show, close to zero problems with the Network - even when I was double-dipping on the laptop to grab screens while the Roku was streaming. There were a few quality shifts, but it was about 98% flawless...I don't think we could have asked for better results. I consider the next five months of "PPVs" to be gravy - hopefully Creative won't consider them afterthoughts.

People will be talking about this one long after tonight, and I'm sure that was the intent. Let's see if they can keep things rolling with tomorrow's RAW.

I know the last thing you want is for me to send you off the mothership, but if you are interested in my real time thoughts and screen grabs, they're on Tumblr and yes, Twitter.

I agree on all points, including the network feed that I watched on my PS3. Some audio fuzz during the preshow, but smooth as buttered silk the rest of the night. Watching the end of the Streak (and presumably, the Undertaker's last match) was so staggeringly unexpected. I am aghast at the Streak ending, but doing it with a part-timer like Brock is probably the smartest thing to do. He won't have to deal with crowds shitting all over him for it for the rest of his career. At least now we all know why Cena didn't get the match this year. And we got to see history. Sad history, like watching a pope get shot.

Main event was spectacular. Opener was good too, but really it was the triple threat that stole the show. It started out slow enough, but by the end I was living and dieing on the near falls. I absolutely could not take another disappointment after the Undertaker. Bryan coming through and making Batista tap out in the middle of the ring, in what I can only assume is a silent homage to WMXX's finish, was amazing, and the celebration afterwards matched it.

All in all, I would have been happy had I actually ordered and paid for this show, let alone gotten it gratis with the network as I did.

Same here ... Pretty much flawless stream from the Roku.

I dug the show. And as much as I hated seeing the Streak end, it was a total shock ... I dare say the biggest shock in wrestling since the Hogan heel turn. And if Taker wasn't cool with it ending, then it wouldn't have ended.

Daniel Bryan ... wow ... The man is incredible.

I also had zero problems with my feed on The Network tonight.

So...Undertaker...I certainly didn't see that one coming. It wasn't even so much that Brock beat him, it was that he beat him in what was such an underwhelming fashion. The funny thing is, NOBODY was buying any of those Brock near-falls...until it wasn't a near-fall anymore. I was legitimately shocked by the 3 count and immediately started thinking of a Dusty Finish scenario, but realized that there wasn't one coming. I'm more surprised than anything that UT was beaten on what was a pretty terrible match, but I suppose that's part of the point. Even UT knows he can't go anymore, so I'm guessing he made the call to lose this year. Either way, they made an even bigger monster tonight with Brock Lesnar and that...is what's Best for Business.

Speaking of Best for Business, they finally put Daniel Bryan over in the best way possible. Everything in the main event from the insane table spot (I have no idea how Orton managed to continue after destroying his back on the monitor) all the way to the end, complete with the epic false finishes, was incredible. Bryan played the best underdog since Bret Hart and he deserves to finally bask in the glow of his win tonight.

Tomorrow night is going to be fun, only because I genuinely have no idea where this company goes next. This is the most excited I've been about the product in years.

YES! YES! YES! YES!!!!!

I did have a Network crap-out, but I think it was either my internet going down or a problem with the PS3 app because before that it was looking AMAZING. (And I didn't have my laptop ready to go as a backup.)

Because of that crap-out, I missed the Taker finish and the Divas match, but I can watch those whenever because of the Network so it's all good.

Great great show. Best Mania in forever. And OMG Renee Young's dress.

Watched with my 12 year old son and 12 year old nephew. They were both absolutely speechless after the 'Taker match. Our Xbox stream stuttered all night and out and out quit during the main event. Thankfully we got it back before the end. I thought it was a pretty good show, amplified by the kids reactions. That shot Orton took landing on the monitor looked nasty.

Glad to see the predictions for Daniel Bryan walking out with the belts tonight were true. Props to WWE Creative for turning what would've been a horrible main event into a magnificent capstone for the Rise of Daniel Bryan. I can almost believe they had this planned all along ...

I was so shocked when I found out that Undertaker actually LOST, my face was similar to these: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2019767-fans-react-to-brock-lesnar-ending-undertakers-undefeated-wrestlemania-streak?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=programming-national

I got the network today and hosted three friends; one guy who watches zero wrestling, a guy who watched in the 80's/90's, and my casual friend Matt.


First off, I mentioned MLB Advanced Media being the best in the world at this stuff. As a TV Broadcasting graduate who works in IT, this is something I know a little bit about - and I received validation tonight.

Laptop in the basement, with a wifi signal from a floor up. FLAWLESS performance.


There was A LOT of nods to Wresltemania XX tonight.

- Triple H not only busted out a crossface, but he rolled Bryan back into the middle of the ring.

- Multiple Germans Suplexes.

- The aforementioned tapout in the main event.

We were all in shock about the streak being broken. And *I* was in shock with the TIGER SUPLEX.

Great Wrestlemania over all!!

0 problems with the feed and nothing to complain about the show.

Austin and Rock ribbing Hogan with the Superdome fail really made the opening segment.


It got real quiet in my house when Taker didn't kick out. Looking forward to his farewell speech. Totally ok with his loss, he looked like he was ready for it. If Taker wasn't ok with it wouldn't have happened. All good with me.

Yes, Yes, Yes!!!!



Edit.... For the record, I streamed through PS3. Had some fuzziness and sound issues during the pre-show but it was still watchable. The show itself was possibly better quality than what I have experienced in the past with Cox cable. No digital pixels ruining the images. Even during the crazy amount of confetti at the end.

My 360 did too. Some stutters,and one freeze during Takers enterence after he appeared. I got it back by the start of the match. 21-1. WOW. It won't sink in til next years mania.


How amazing is Cesaro? Did anyone else think he was just going to slam Show?

Once I saw that Cesaro was in the match (I figure a lot of people would have picked him to win if he'd been announced earlier), I knew it was going to come down to him and Show, and that he'd win by showing off his freakish strength on the elimination. Still, tremendous toss, and a great nod to Andre himself.

I was about a minute behind on XBox. Sometimes it would randomly skip and catch up, got a few bufferings during the main event so I'd give the stream a B-.

Win or lose the Undertaker match felt like it might be his last match anyway. It was like watching an old boxer take a pounding, and you're wondering if he should have stopped a year earlier. The ending was still shocking, really shocking. It was strange that there no replays, because chances are you didn't take the pin attempt seriously until 2 1/2.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Brock now.

The main event was great. Cena vs Bray was really good. Hunter vs Bryan was good, but there always seems to be too much laying around in his matches.

The Shield squashing was surprising

This is going to require a rewatch to take it all in.

No real problems with the feed.

Taker had to have picked Lesnar to end the streak, otherwise, I think HBK would have done it last year.

No Sting, no Punk, so that's good.

Are you all looking forward to HHH beating Bryan for the belt tomorrow night?


Overall I enjoyed the card, even the Cena match, which slowed things down a lot, had the right psychology and fit well.

Not a bad match (well, I did take a bathroom break during the Divas nonsense).

Glad I paid for the Network.

Top to bottom, that was my favorite WrestleMania.

If only because whoever wrote and booked it put real thought, creativity, and emotion into the decisions and outcomes. The good planning/writing became great because of the wrestlers, as it should be. So many excellent performances tonight. I'll be watching this one again and again over the next few days.

Bodyslam Big Show over the top for elimination. I... wow.

Kofi being Kofi, Del Rio putting in very solid and entertaining work, the crowd groaning for the 619. Twice.

The Shield, oh The Shield. What a refreshing decision not to pull the trigger on the split.

Bryan over HHH clean and then making Davey Bats tap.

Undertaker losing became a real possibility in my head when it lost all plausibility that he could pull out the win. Well told, well booked, and an interesting decision that I don't completely hate.

If Taker didn't lose, the person to lose The Streak to was Bray Wyatt. What a performance. Hard to believe that Cena is the one who has starred in Hollywood talkies. Bray is out there, working his ass off psychologically and physically and we get over-the-top, press x to anguish, John Cena. With the turbo button held.

He's got the whole world, in his hands.

I really wanted a Giant Swing on Mysterio. Really really.

Feed was perfect on PS4.

I have been on the fence on whether to order this or not since the Rumble. At the last minute I talked myself into signing up for the network. I figured $10 a month for the next 6 months wasn't so bad. I've spent more on less.

I have to say that I'm very happy that I did. I enjoyed pretty much the entire show from start to finish.

The opening segment with Hogan, Austin and Rock was a nice acknowledgement of the past 30 years. I feel like it really set the tone for the night.

So many moments that people will be talking about from this show, and as somebody else said, I think that was kind of the point. Maybe it was WWE's way of saying thank you to the fans who bought the network, and hopefully get some more who only ordered the PPV.

The streak ending will be discussed plenty, and it was like the air was taken out of the arena after that match. The look on the faces of the crowd was priceless.

Cesaro slamming TBS was a holy shit moment for me. I really think they are grooming him to be huge. The spot with Kofi keeping his feet on the steps was insane.

Not sure where they go from here with Brey and Cena, but I really hope this feud isn't over. The Wyatt's, for me, have made Cena interesting for the first time in years.

Again, great show. I'm really glad I signed up for the network and feel like I've already gotten my money's worth from this show alone.

Holy fuck. Near perfect booking.

I guess if Taker was to lose any time soon, it should have been to Punk last year or Reigns/Ambrose next year, but this is a top 50-percentile WrestleMania for sure.
