In my post about Wrestlemania 24, I called it my favorite live Wrestlemania experience. By contrast, I'd have to say 25 was my least favorite. But keep in mind, anytime you're at Wrestlemania, it's a helluva good time. But for some reason, I left like the 25th installment of this historic show should have had more pizazz.
Mania was main event by Triple H and Randy Orton. There are several reasons why I didn't enjoy this scenario, one of the biggest being that these two had wrestled countless times prior to this match. Not to mention they were in a three way match for the WWE title the year before with John Cena. Trips came out on top of this contest in one of the most lackluster main events in the history of the event.

One of the matches I was most looking forward to was the brother vs. brother contest between Jeff and Matt Hardy. I'm not sure why, but I felt like this one fell short of my expectations too. I think part of that was my shock in the outcome. I had really banked on Jeff winning and gaining some revenge on Matt.

And I shouldn't admit to this now, but I was very disappointed that CM Punk won a second Money in the Bank match. I love the guy now, but back in his early days in WWE I could not stand him. It wasn't until his heel turn and feud with Jeff Hardy that I got to appreciate him, and I think the WWE let him spread his wings a little more as a heel too. I had been hoping that the returning Christian would win MITB and go on to become world champion. Eventually he would, but it didn't last (a rant for another day)
