Bret Hart has posted a new blog on his website, in which he gives his thoughts on almost every match on the WrestleMania XXVII card, as well as his thoughts on WrestleMania being held in WCW’s former home of Atlanta. Some particularly interesting note, he once again showed that the hatchet was truly buried by praising Shawn Michaels. He also praised Daniel Bryan greatly, even comparing him to his brother, Owen Hart. Below are highlights:
-The Undertaker and Triple H segment with Shawn Michaels played out exactly like I expected, the usual smoke blowing up the rectum stuff, more grunts and then a staring contest, thank God Shawn was there just to add something, anything to it. I suppose there isn’t much else these two legends can do as far as buildup goes but it came across to me as having little imagination, the match itself should be one of the better match ups because Taker brings it all the way for Wrestlemania and Triple H can turn it up when he wants to. Triple H has had some hard fought battles over the years, but I don’t know if he’s ever had his chance to literally blow them away at Wrestlemania but this might be his best chance. Taker, in my opinion, is truly one of the all-time best and time and time again, he has delivered the best match on the show so I expect a good solid match, old school but intense. It could steal the show.
-I know I’ve raved about certain guys, but the match I’d tell any young aspiring wrestler to concentrate on and study over and over will be the Sheamus versus Daniel Bryan. I was impressed by Daniel back in ROH but he’s absolutely brilliant since his WWE arrival. He reminds me of my brother Owen at times, but he is everything that is good and true about pro wrestling. He makes me rise up to my feet in my living room every time I watch him. He is the best in the world right now as far as workrate goes.
-I’ve never underestimated my onetime nemesis Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler. People can say what they want but Jerry is an old pro. I have no doubts he’ll deliver a entertaining match and having Stone Cold there adds a lot as well. As for Michael Cole, he might be the most hated heel in wrestling right now and it will be worth the price of the PPV to see Lawler kick Cole’s butt from one end of the ring to the other. No doubt Andy Kaufman will be watching from above. This one will deliver the smiles needed to complete a first rate Wrestlemania. I expect an excellent show, but I’m putting my faith in some of the dark horse matchups to make the most noise.
