Mike Reviews Every WrestleMania Main Event – VI to X

Hello You! I decided that, seeing as WrestleMania is on the horizon, I’d go and review every main event that has happened over the events 36 year history. I’m defining “main event” as the match that goes on last, so that will almost surely mean that I miss off some classic bouts, but don’t blame ...

HHH at WM36?

It's nearly March and all is quiet on the HHH front for WrestleMania.  It's unlikely he's taken the hint and realized no one wants to watch his 25-minute snoozers anymore.  With all the other legends paired off with somebody now, who's left for him to wrestle?  Rey Mysterio maybe?  I know the Hulkster's talked about ...

Question

Are you surprised they went Goldberg vs Roman?  I am far more intrigued by that than the Fiend.  Not really sure where the intrigue would be.  Roman wins with a million spears and then has another failed title reign.
