    I will say something seemed off, no replays of the end, no music for a while, nothing.

    I saw taker say something right before the tombstone attempt that Brock reversed into the F5 for the win. I honestly think Taker called that in the ring :( he looked seriously injured and I think he decided it would look silly if he won and looked more beat up than Lesnar. I mean.. he could barely walk. I couldn't believe my eyes, stunned and mad as hell.

    Can't believe they ended the streak to Lesnar of all people. At least let Cena have it after all he's done for the damn company. That will overshadow Bryan winning, no question.

    There are moments as you age where you can actually feel what remains of your childhood twinge, and twinge hard.

    This was one of those moments. Much of my childhood and teens was spent happily watching WWF/E, and the one constant throughout was that Undertaker always won at Wrestlemania. Always.

    I'll give them credit, though - as someone who only occasionally tunes in now, this Mania was the first show in a long, long time to make me regress back to the emotional responses of the good old days :)

    Like I said, wrestling has been on fire the past fe months. Great stuff. I'm still in disbelief about the undertaker.. my childhood too. Pretty sure that was his last match, can't comprehend it.

    Of course 'they ' do.
    A more educated and creative question would be what does this reflect , from where does the need come to see it?

    what's the need to watch cheesy action movies? It's entertainment, we all know it's scripted and mostly fake, but in it's prime (attitude era) it was the storytelling that the theatrics that made us watch it

    Taker's career is apparently over, no "dream" match with Sting...after the match Taker was taken to hospital with a concussion and a neck injury.

    I hope he's ok, you could tell something was up during the match.

    Thanks "Mark Calloway" for all the years, a true professional!!

    Not sure who all watched Raw, but the Ultimate Warrior came out last night and gave a promo to his fans and was just inducted into the hall of fame on Sunday.... he died today o_O!!!!

    RIP Warrior. Makes me think maybe he killed himself? His fans kept chanting for one more match and he said he wasn't going to....? At the HOF ceremony his speech seemed really interesting too.

    3 days after the HOF, 2 days after Wrestlemania, and the night after he finally came out on Raw and cut a promo for his fans that have been waiting 20 years to see him.

    Here's his speech from just last night....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xR08M6EUd0g

    Not sure how he died yet.

    Ultimate Warrior vs. Hulk Hogan was the great grudge match of the early 90s.

    RIP.

    This is the statement from the police about Warrior's death: "On April 8 at 5:50 pm 54-year-old “Warrior” James B Hellwig collapsed while walking with his wife to their car at the Gainy Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, Ariz. Scottsdale Fire transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead soon after arrival. At this point in the investigation, it appears as though a catastrophic medical condition caused his death."

    Hard to believe the Ultimate Warrior is dead. Haven't kept up with wrestling much lately. But, he had a big fued with Vince McMahon, yet was inducted into the WWE hall of fame, which McMahon owns... after trashing McMahon so badly after that DVD came out?

    This is a story not even the script writers at wwe could make up. So sad.
    RIP Warrior.

    I only saw a photo of Warrior at his hall of fame induction speech, but the guy still looked bulked up and strong. I believe he still worked out as a body builder?

    People have said worse and McMahon will do business. Only one person ever has not been able to work with Vince after a falling out and thats Randy Savage. Nobody really knows why but rumors whirl around it and with Randys passing we will never know.

    One of my all time favorites was the Ultimate Warrior. Just seeing him come flying out of the curtain running was awesome as a kid. He finally got recognized for all he had done and then he died. Kinda strange after his speech that he went down like that right after talking about living after death. Something tells me he knew something was wrong and made his last moment in the wrestling world.
