WrestleMania 30 has come and gone but the effects from "The Showcase of Immortals" can still be felt throughout the WWE Universe. WrestleMania 30 saw a "B+ player" thwart The Authority and reign supreme as champion, the beginning of the rise of a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion and one of the most historic and legendary feats in sports come to an end. WrestleMania 30 certainly had a bit of everything and didn't disappoint. Or did it?
Of course not every show or pay-per-view can be perfect and is certain to have it flaws. For the most part, WrestleMania 30 was a great show to watch and had its moments of excitement that reminded the WWE Universe why it loves professional wrestling. But it also had its disappointing moments and we want to point out five of the biggest disappointments from WrestleMania 30.
5 Natalya Passed Over Again
4 Cena vs Wyatt Ends As Expected
Did you really think Cena was going to lose this match? Sure he has lost at WrestleMania before, but one was in a Triple Threat Match (vs Randy Orton and Triple H), another came at the hands of being screwed by The Rock (vs The Miz) and his last loss at WrestleMania came vs The Great One who was having one more run at glory in WWE. I'm sure very few had Wyatt defeating Cena. I'll admit that when the match between them was first announced for WrestleMania 30, I had Wyatt over Cena in what would be the upset of the night. But I backed out of that once the word "legacy" was brought into the equation.
3 Two Matches: The Shield vs Corporate Kane and The New Age Outlaws/Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Let me start out by saying either of these two matches could have been replaced by the WrestleMania Pre-Show Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Championship match that saw the Usos retain the titles. The Battle Royal not so much because of the simple fact of the legendary name of Andre the Giant being attached to it, but the 6 Man Tag match, certainly. I understand how dominant of a stable the Shield is but Kane and the Outlaws could have at least shown up in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Shield was able to steamroll its opponents for an easy win, culminating with an awesome double-triple powerbomb. The man who wanted this match, Kane, was barely a factor in the contest. To say this match underwhelmed is an understatement.
2 Still No CM Punk
1 The Streak Being Broken
There is simply no other choice for the biggest disappointment of WrestleMania 30. Calling this a disappointment is a huge understatement, but to stick to the theme of the list a disappointment is what it is. When Lesnar hoisted the beaten up The Undertaker onto his shoulders for a third F-5, only one of two things could have happened. Either The Undertaker would reverse it and regain momentum (possibly reversing into a Tombstone for the win) or Brock would execute his finishing maneuver and as Taker did twice before in the match, he would kick out. But when the referee's hand slammed down on the mat for the third time, the Superdome fell silent. The crowd did most of the talking through facial expressions while the loudest sound in the building was that of Lesnar's advocate, Paul Heyman, congratulating his client. Then the silence and shock turned into complete and utter disappointment, as loud boos reigned down from the over 75,000 on hand to witness the Streak end at 21-1. What a disappointing and outright sad way to possibly (most likely) end such a legendary and historic career. But if it indeed was The Undertaker's choice to lose, then that is his call and he has earned that right. But nonetheless a huge disappoint to his many fans and the WWE Universe as a whole.
