WrestleMania 28 has come and gone, with a full plate of matches.
I watched this event at Buffalo Wild Wings and it was packed. I got there at 5pm and it was a good thing because by the time WM28 started there were no seats available. We had a party of 13 this year. Everyone in the restaurant were into the matches as we yelled and screamed all night, especially at the end (don’t want to spoil it).
Here are the results of the matches and how well I did in predicting the order of the matches and who won. The card below is the order in which the matches were at WrestleMania 28.
Attendance at the Sun Life Stadium was 78,363, a new attendance record. There were seats still available according to the WWE.
In a Dark Match:
Triple Threat Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship
- Primo & Epico © vs. The Uso’s vs.
Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel
Epic and Primo retain their titles as Gabriel hits a top rope asai moonsault on top of everyone on the outside before rolling Epico back into the ring. Gabriel tries for a 450, but Epico gets his knees up. One of the Uso’s hits a superfly splash, but the pin is broken up. Epico hits the Uso with a backstabber, and pins him for three.
There were 8 matches.

Daniel Bryan (c) versus Sheamus
Sheamus is the new World Heavyweight Champ when he used the Brogue kick on Bryan. This match was over faster than you can blink your eye.

Rock stands up, catches him and nails the Rock Bottom for the win.
Notes from the match: John Cena at one point after pinning The Rock for a two count, looked at the ref and said “I know this is WrestleMania but that was a three count.”
We all went crazy when The Peoples Champ won.

I hoped Gabbers liked my predictions and results.
