I'm going to make this quick as I'm tired and that was a true abortion of 3 months hype.

The Wrestlemania 25 scores:
Corazon 8
Prototype 7
Zellery (fives times edited!) 7
PsychicSykes 7
Vesparian 6
PCCD 6
Lucien 6
Lonestar 6
LaggyJim 6
Balloon Sod 6
Cropolite 6
E-man 5
Brick Tamlin 5
Return of the star 5
Drumstick 5
Adam Pollard 5
sw26 5
TruGamez 5
Gaminglegend 5
PsychoPriest 4
Ironmaiden 4
Teh Bork 4
Ginga 4
Dark Dragon 64 4
Mockmaster (got his edit in 3 minutes before the deadline) 4
AJ Styles 3

Well done Corazon for coming clear first. Commiserations to AJ who after being 1st and 2nd now has the humiliation of coming a clear last. Has that ruined his chances overall?

Let's see:

We'll start with those who only played one round:
Poncho - 8 (only played one)
Vesparian: 6 (only played one)
Balloon Sod: 6 (only played one)

Next we have those who played two rounds:
Ironmaiden - 13 (only played two)
Lucien: 12 (only played two)
PCCD: 11 (only played two)
Prototype: 10 (only played two)
Gaming Legend: 9 (only played two)
Ginga: 8 (only played two)

In joint last place and winners of half a Cena poster each.....
E-man - 16
Cropolite - 16
They've been propping up the board all along but have taken it in good spirits. Good jobs guys, you're not wrestling nerds.

Joint 7th place:
PsychoPriest - 17
Drumstick - 17
What a pair.

A loner at 6th:
Lonestar - 18

We've got 5 at 5:
Dark Dragon 64 - 19
Mockmaster - 19
Teh Bork - 19
Return_of_the_STAR - 19
Adam Pollard - 19

At joint fourth and narrowly missing out on the prizes:
Trugamez - 20
Sw26 - 20

So now we have the prizes and as you may have noticed a lot of names are yet to come. We've got draws and so according to the rules I posted back in January the prizes now lower in value to accommodate more of them.

Soooooooooooooo joint 3rd it's..........

Laggyjim - 21

AND

Corazon - 21 (higher than PP)

AND

PsychicSykes - 21

AND!















A J Styles - 21. He lead for so long and had a good lead on the rest but he let himself down at WM25. If he'd had changed his Trish pick like he said he'd have second.

Onwards to 2nd place. Manc-loving scum and jammy guessing bastard.........

Brick Tamlin - 22

All on your own there at second. You might want to know that you were one point from victory. You should know now who's done it and got a clear first place victory.....

Zellery - 23

Congratulations Zellery you are the GRAPL 2009 Champion and have earnt the top prize. What the strawberry float that prize is will be decided tomorrow. Blame all those at 3rd place!

It's part of the rules now everytime you get pushed into the steps you get a free towel dabbing. It's an important service make no mistake

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

So utter fail on most of my predos, a load of utter gooseberry fool stuff, and an AWESOME Taker-HBK match.

What a lame WrestleMania. :(

I am sorry but last night was abysmal! I couldn't stay awake after HBK / Undertaker!

What was the triple threat like? How was the Trips & Orton match?

Triple Threat - ***
Orton/HHH - **1/2

And I'm usually the optimistic one :(

Gave up during the pretty good HBK/Taker match, this won't be the event to get me watching wrestling again. :(

The first 50 mins last night made me embarrassed to still be a wrestling fan ... you guys may think that is over the top but it is how I felt

Pretty strawberry floating tragic event overall.

- Money in the Bank was entertaining. What the strawberry float Kane and Mark Henry were doing there I'll never know; was it even physically possible for Henry to have won? :lol: A more than worthy opener to the event, buuuuuut...

- Kid Rock completely sucked the life out of the event. strawberry floating abysmal, he wasn't even singing live. What a wanker.

- Divas match was pointless and the commentating was seriously awful.

- Legends match was OK. Steamboat was surprisingly awesome but it all nose-dived when Rourke took about 4 hours to get the to the ring. Also, why did he have a plasma TV in front of him when he was ring side? :lol:

- JBL's last match being getting squashed by a little rat. :|

- Stone Cold. :cry:

- HBK and The Undertaker was really great, and strawberry float me 'Taker nearly broke his neck. :shock:

- WWE title match was boring.

- HHH versue Orton was an abomination. The crowd went completely dead . I've seen more activity in a strawberry floating morgue.

I fell asleep during the Orton/HHH match. As fantastic as the Taker/HBK match was, that's probably the worst Wrestlemania I've ever seen.

There was so much wrong with that PPV. Kid Rock doing a mini-concert after just one wrestling match. The Divas match coming out of nowhere with no ring introductions or explanation about the returning Divas. The first we saw of Molly Holly was her being eliminated.

The Jericho-Legends match was pretty good. However, Rourke made a mockery of the 3 Legends by finishing off Jericho with one left hook. :lol:

Rey Jokersterio :fp:

Undertaker-HBK was superb and a match for the ages.

I actually fell asleep during the main event.

Last year's Mania felt more like the 25th Anniversary than this year's.

There's only been two truly awful WrestleMania's, & they were 9 & XI. 13 also had a crummy Main Event (Undertaker Vs Sid Vicious), but Bret Hart Vs Steve Austin & the wild Chicago Street Fight were very good. More importantly, it wasn't a 4 hour event.

I mean, WrestleMania 1 watched now would probably be torture, but that's simply a case of the times a changing.

If you take away the elaborate set, the pyro & 70,000+ fans (which barely registered most of the time), & this could have been any standard PPV of the last 5 years. A card made up of matches we've all seen numerous times before.

I feel sorry for anyone who paid for it. I can't get over the main event. There was no intensity at all. They weren't even trying to wrestle a good match and the ending was baffling. That's it? He gets revenge on Orton with those 3 moves?

I thought Wrestlemania 2 was rubbish. Personally I liked WM9, I think only Hogan winning the title spoiled things.

I haven't been too keen on any of the recent lot since WM18.
