— Most everyone backstage felt the Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels last night at WrestleMania tore the house down. There was also a lot of talk backstage on how great Ricky Steamboat looked for his age in his match with Chris Jericho.
The other big topic backstage was on how poorly the Randy Orton vs. Triple H main event match came off, both in the ring and with how it was booked. Although, many feel the creative team has something planned to get the title onto Orton tonight.
In closing, the mood was said to be good overall and company officials were quite pleased with the show’s attendance and gate.
— While staying at the WWE hotel this past weekend for Wrestlemania XXV, Mickey Rourke was cordial with the wrestlers and said to be approachable to everyone from the company. He spent a lot of time with Ric Flair, Afa “The Wild Samoan” and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, but was approachable to everyone from the company. It’s also being said that he spent a lot of time with Diana Hart, mother of WWE developmental wrestler DH Smith, who was on hand for the festivities this past week.
