It's been a while, Bleachers! I do realize that WrestleMania 27 has past and may seem like old news, but in my absence, I have composed a list of 10 history-making moments that occurred this past Sunday.
These fun trivia facts, records, and stats may surprise you as they did me. Also included is my personal opinion on the record made, and how it could have overall made WrestleMania 27 a memorable event.
This would mark the third time a Superstar has moved from the first match to the ending match, as Chris Jericho and Edge have done the same in previous years. The Miz should be proud of this achievement, showing how much he has improved since then.
Since its inception at WrestleMania 21, the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, featuring six to 10 mid-carders, each year became an annual staple at the Show of Shows. Being well received by fans, the contest added excitement and suspense to the show due to its high unpredictability.
However, due to the new Money In The Bank pay-per-view added to the schedule last summer, the MITB Match was scrapped from the card after a six-year run.
Although we will continue to see the match be contested this summer, it will not be the same as if it was contested on their biggest show of the year.
With the streak still alive, will the now 2-0 Miz be the latest victim come WrestleMania 28?
In addition, Trish Stratus competed in the six-person tag team match alongside John Morrison and Snooki for the first time in five years. Booker T served as color commentator for the Jerry Lawler-Michael Cole match for the first time in four years, before stunned by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
John Cena would lose his first-ever singles match at WrestleMania this past Sunday following his defeat to WWE Champion The Miz. Rey Mysterio would meet the same fate, as he would lose to nemesis Cody Rhodes and suffer his first pinfall defeat since WrestleMania 19.
This new curse goes to show how little winning the Royal Rumble means anymore, seeing that the winner is supposed to receive the main event slot at WrestleMania.
Wouldn't it make sense if all the participants in the Royal Rumble made it their goal not to win the match so they wouldn't meet the same fate as Del Rio?
After some confusion, it has been cleared that WrestleMania 27 did set the record for the highest attendance record for any entertainment event held at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta with 71,617 raging WWE fans. Also, this would be the first WrestleMania held in Atlanta.
Have any of the mentioned records, stats, and trivia facts changed your overall view on the event? Is there something you see missing from the list?
