Wrestlemania XII Review

Wrestlemania XII Review : 60 Minutes .. One Match

Vader / Owen Hart / The British Bulldog vs Jake Roberts / Ahmed Johnson / Yokozuna
The team that featured Vader was known as Camp Cornette . I'm really not sure how this feud began and caused this match to be made . It's sad to think that half of the competitors in this match are no longer with us . This was a good way to open to show . Vader pins Roberts after a vader bomb . **3/4

Roddy Piper vs Goldust : Hollywood Backlot Brawl
If they had ended this after the brawl outside , that would have been fine . Instead they decide to drag it out all night with car chase videos and use it to interrupt the next match . I'm just gonna rate it here and not even mention the stuff that happens later on . DUD

Stone Cold vs Savio Vega
Austin's very first Wrestlemania and after this almost all of his Wrestlemania matches would be excellent and very memorable . This is quite an underrated match . Austin wins by making Savio pass out with a cobra clutch . ***

Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs Ultimate Warrior
It sounds unbelievable that HHH would ever be the jobber in a squash match , but here it is . Warrior even no sold the pedigree . Warrior wins with a big splash . DUD

Undertaker vs Diesel
This is where Undertaker's matches started getting better at Wrestlemania . This was also his longest Mania match at that time until the next year . Taker goes 5-0 with a big tombstone . ***

Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels : 60 Minute Iron Man Match
I absolutely love this match . It's probably the fifth time I've watched the match and it still amazes me . 60 minutes filled with drama , great mat wrestling and close nearfalls . What more could you ask for ? Only some of the slower parts of the match stop me from giving it the full five . ****3/4

6.5/10 . A couple of DUDs stop this from being great , but there were still two good matches and an all time classic .
