In today's installment of my "Rewriting WrestleMania" series, we'll revisit the silver anniversary of the greatest sports entertainment event in history, WrestleMania XXV from Houston, TX. In many people's opinion, The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels match that took place here was the greatest match of all-time. Whether or not that is true, I think it was one of the few bright spots of an otherwise mediocre WrestleMania that should have been an unforgettable one, befitting the landmark 25th year of the event. I personally loved the Triple H/Randy Orton feud and the MITB match as usual. However, other than these 3 matches, the rest of this WrestleMania left a lot to be desired in my opinion. Here are the results. April 5, 2009 Reliant Stadium (Houston, TX) 1. (Dark) Unified Tag Team Championship Lumberjack Match: WWE Tag Team Champions The Colons (Primo and Carlito) def. World Tag Team Champions The Miz and John Morrison to become WWE Unified Tag Team Champions. 2. Money in the Bank Ladder Match: CM Punk defeated Kane, Mark Henry, MVP, Shelton Benjamin, Kofi Kingston, Christian and Finlay 3. "Miss WrestleMania" Battle Royal: "Santina" Marella won by last eliminating Beth Phoenix and Melina 4. 3-on-1 Handicap Match: Chris Jericho def. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, and "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka w/ Ric Flair 5. Extreme Rules Match: Matt Hardy def. Jeff Hardy 6. Intercontinental Championship: Rey Mysterio def. JBL to become new champion 7. The Undertaker def. Shawn Michaels 8. WWE Championship Triple Threat: John Cena def. Edge (c) and Big Show to become new champion 9. World Heavyweight Championship: Triple H (c) def. Randy Orton to retain *Rewriting WrestleMania XXV* 1. Unified Tag Team Championship: The Colons def. The Miz & John Morrison I'd keep this the same. I liked both teams and thought it was the best possible match for the division at the time. 2. Money in the Bank Ladder Match: CM Punk def. MVP, Kane, Mark Henry, Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Shelton Benjamin, and Big Show Other than switching up some of the participants, I'd keep this the same as well. CM Punk winning it back to back was the right call in my opinion, especially considering the feud it helped set up between he and Jeff Hardy. 3. Legacy (Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase) def. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper & Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat w/ Ric Flair There are several ways I thought about rebooking this. I thought maybe Steamboat alone against Jericho, since Steamboat was clearly the only one who could still go. Then I thought maybe Steamboat against JBL, a guy who could have done just as well of a job insulting the legends as Jericho did. However, I finally decided that Piper (though his best days had clearly passed him by) was still an attraction worth putting in the ring with Steamboat and that Snuka wasn't, and that in my opinion Rhodes and DiBiase would have made even more sense for their opponents seeing how their gimmick was all about being the future of the WWE. I thought they deserved their own match instead of just the backstage segment with Orton. Showcase 2 of your youngest talents and put them over 2 legends of the business. 4. Intercontinental Championship: Rey Mysterio def. JBL (c) Half of me would have liked to see a real match here considering the IC Title hadn't been defended at Mania in 8 years. But the other half wouldn't change it, since JBL had to endure an embarrassing 21 second loss in order to retire on the spot after the match. I'd keep this the same. Plus Mysterio had never been IC Champ up to this point, which honestly surprised me. 5. John Cena def. Chris Jericho Cena being involved in the championship match for the 5th straight Mania was a redundant move in my eyes. That's not even something they did for Hulk Hogan. Cena, Edge, and Big Show bored me quite frankly. Jericho and Cena is a WrestleMania feud that should have happened at some point in my opinion, and this was probably the best time and place for it. 6. World Heavyweight Championship Fatal 4-Way TLC Match: Edge (c) def. Jeff Hardy, Christian, and Matt Hardy With all the history revolving around these 4 in the tag team division, I'm surprised it didn't ever cross over into a TLC match for a singles championship. I'd have personally loved to see this. Even Edge and Jeff Hardy could have been the way to go, however I decided to make it a fatal 4-way since I liked the feud between the Hardys at the time and the addition of Christian would have brought it full circle. 7. Women's Championship: Beth Phoenix (c) def. Natalya Forget the joke of a divas battle royal that Santino won. Beth Phoenix should have been afforded the opportunity to defend her championship against Natalya, who proved she was for real as well. 8. WWE Championship: Randy Orton def. Triple H (c) I absolutely loved this feud and think it's a lost art in wrestling these days to make it feel as personal as this one got. Orton was such a great villain at the time, attacking all the McMahons including Stephanie. The only thing I would have changed is the winner. 9. The Undertaker def. Shawn Michaels Hindsight is the name of the game in this "Rewriting WrestleMania" series, and I don't think anyone would argue that in hindsight, this match should have clearly closed the show. It was an absolute masterpiece that could never be duplicated, though they did their best at WM26. It began a trend where finishers lose their power at WrestleMania, but it was great to see the fans shocked to see the match continue at least a handful of times. Feel free to comment and/or post your rewritten WMXXV.
