I didn't think this was a very good Wrestlemania. For a Wrestlemania event I would expect better matches. This PPV was just plain dumb and boring. I thought a lot of matches could have been better or scraped. This PPV deserves a C
A few of my thoughts...
-The lack of even one singles matches hurts this card. I realize that the WWE is experimenting with many different formats at this time, but sometimes the traditional 1X1 match is better than anything off-the-wall or crazy. A good example of this is the Jericho/Benoit/Angle Three-Way match. I feel like any combination of those two would have been better than the three of them mucking around.
-The best match on the card, hands down, is the Three-Way Ladder match between the Dudleys, Hardys, and Christian/Edge. This is high-flying, absolutely insane professional wrestling at its very best. Not only were all these guys fearless, but it wasn't a "sloppy fearless" either (like Mick Foley would often lapse into). No, these teams were all incredibly talented and not afraid to take risks (that they almost always pulled off successfully).
-The tag match featuring Kane/Rikishi vs. Road Dogg/X-Pac is pretty entertaining/solid, if the traditional "random talents thrown together" type of structure. This is the type of match in which the talented guys who couldn't get a storyline developed before WrestleMania are just thrown together in hopes of the talent winning out over the "heat". In this case, it works well enough.
-The Fatal Four-Way finale, featuring a McMahon in every corner, is indeed an entertaining prospect. The Rock (Vince), Big Show (Shane), Foley (Linda), and Triple-H (Stephanie) put on a decent show, but the overall effect proves to be slightly lackluster in total. Not only is it difficult to follow the action a lot of the times, but the ending is disappointing in the way it features the McMahons over the actual star talent. In other words, the weeks of build-up to this match were far superior to the end result.
Considering that Steve Austin, the company's biggest star at the time, was recuperating from various injuries during this period, it is amazing that WWE was able to pull this show off as well as it did. I'll always argue it is more "hype" than "substance", but there is certainly talent present...no one is doubting that. That sets enough of a baseline bar for entertainment even if the overall product isn't in my top WM events.
2. Battle Royal Hardcore Championship: Tazz, Viscera, Mean Street Posse, Champ-Crash, Hardcore Holly, Kai en Tai, Head Bangers, Acolytes - There were a lot of champions in that bout incl. Mean Street Posse - lol. My tip was for Acolytes, but then unclearly Hardcore Holly Won that in 15th minute. 6.5/10
3. Al Snow/Steve Blackman Vs. T&A - Test and Albert won, Debut of Thrish Stratus. 7/10
4. Ladder Match: Dudley Boys Vs. Edge/Christian Vs. Champs-Hardy Boyz - A lot of breathtaking action, I remember Jeff's Senton Bomb through the table outside the ring :-O . Dudley deserved that, but E+CH won. 10/10
5. CatFight: The Kat Vs. Terri - I don't like those things, that incl."old very funny silly granma" Mae Young. That always want to get naked. Terri won in unclean way and was there a nice shot on her a$$ 4/10
6. The Radicalz Vs. Chyna/Too Cool - Eddie job to Chyna, OK, i'm not into that "family entertainment"stuff. 6/10
7. Rikishi/Kane Vs. X-Pac/Road Dogg 6/10
8. Fatal 4 way WWF World Heavyweight Title Match: Mick Foley Vs. Big Show Vs. The Rock Vs. Champ-Triple H - I was sad, that Foley was out like 3rd. But I laugh hard, when Triple H won. 8.5/10
D'lo Brown & Godfather vs Bossman & Buchanan This was a pretty good match plus a good performance from Ice-T. 3/5
Hardcore Battle Royal Great nonstop hardcore action! 5/5
Al Snow & Blackman vs Test & Albert Good filler match but not the best match on the show 2/5
Edge & Christian vs Hardy Boyz vs Dudley Boyz Personally, my favorite match in the whole PPV and these 6 Wrestlemania rookies did a great job putting on a fantastic Ladder match. 5/5
Terri vs The Kat Could've been better 1/5
Radiculz vs Chyna & Too Cool Great 6-person tag match. 4/5
Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit vs Chris Jericho Yet another match with all Wrestlemania rookies and they put on a fantastic nonstop action match. 5/5
Rikishi & Kane vs Road Dogg & X-Pac Pretty easy going match, it was more entertaining than good 3/5
The Rock vs Mick Foley vs Triple H vs Big Show Almost a whole hour of amazing action and wrestling! 5/5
1. 15-minute Battle Royal for the Hardcore Title-While it may not have been a great match this match was super entertaining. (8 out of 10)
2.)Three Way Ladder match for the WWF Tag Team Championship: The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) (c) vs. Edge and Christian (Edge and Christian) vs. The Hardy Boyz (Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy)- It was the 3rd best match of the night and will always go down as one of the greatest matches of all time. (9 out of 10)
3.)Two-Fall Triple Threat Match for the WWF Intercontinental and WWF European Championships: Kurt Angle (c) vs. Chris Jericho vs. Chris Benoit. This match featuring 3 soon to be wrestlemania main even superstars was amazing. You could not have much of a better triple threat match. (10 out of 10)
4.Fatal Four Way Elimination Match for the WWF Championship: Triple H (w/Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley) (c) vs. The Rock (w/Vince McMahon) vs. Mick Foley (w/Linda McMahon) vs. The Big Show (w/Shane McMahon)-This match was by far the greatest match of the night. A very surprise ending. This is my favorite wrestlemania main event match behind the iron man match. (10 out of 10)
The rest of the matches were not amazing but they kept the show entertaining.
Results from the PPV: - Big Bossman and Bull Buchanan defeated The Godfather and D'Lo Brown in a boring match.
- Hardcore Holly won the Hardcore title in a Battle Royal which also consisted of Pete Gas, Rodney, Joey Abs, Crash Holly, The APA, Viscera, Funaki, Taka Michinoku, Tazz and The Headbangers. Actually Crash was originally going to retain the title but Holly won it by mistake when the time limit ran out! - Test and Albert downed Al Snow and Steve Blackman in a poor match.
- Edge and Christian defeated The Dudley Boyz and The Hardy Boyz in a fantastic TLC match to win the WWF Tag Team titles.
- (Ref Val Venis) Terri defeated The Kat.
- Too Cool and Chyna defeated Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn.
- Chris Benoit defeated Chris Jericho to win the Intercontinental Championship. Kurt Angle lost the belt.
- Chris Jericho pinned Chris Benoit to win the European Championship. Overall this match was disappointing. Again Angle lost the belt.
- Rikishi and Kane defeated Road Dogg and X-Pac.
- Triple H defeated The Rock, Mick Foley and Big Show to retain the WWF Championship. This was a disappointing match, but Triple H was the only heel to retain the title at a WM, so the fans were shocked that Rock didn't win.
Overall Grade - B+
And lest I forget about the 3-Way LADDER MATCH!!!!! A Classic In every sense of the word.
A (One bad match stops this from getting a +)

Many see the WWF as a stupid program with no real story line and is over acted, I would say to those people 'rubbish', the WWF is as credable and believeable as Eastenders and Coronation Street, except in this case there are Table, Chairs and Ladders!
