If I put up a match saying "John Cena vs The Miz", saying that its the best thing ever, obviously people are going to think I'm retarded. Anyone can see that neither man can put on good matches, but they can at least put on decent matches.
Undertaker vs. HHH:
You said Taker isn't the same guy he was 3-5 years ago. Your'e right, he has had many injuries, and nagging pains, and therefore works a lighter schedule. But as for his matches at Mania, tell me that they haven't gotten better over the past few years. Tell me that you'd rather see Taker vs Edge than Taker vs HBK. I know I wouldn't.
As for "marking out" for Taker..you don't have to be a child to be inspired and captivated with him. Children love his character. As an adult, I don't watch him mainly for that, but his matches
Edge v ADR:
Like I said earlier, this one for you is up to personal tastes. I love ADR's mic, and ring work. Again here, you miss the point about how Edge fits in with the PG factor. His promo work had to have a major overhaul when the rating changed to PG. When it was M, or R(its different here than it is in the States), he had more freedom on the mic, and could cut promos, and do things that made him the "Rated R Superstar". He can't do those things anymore. He can't swear, bring up sex, or anything edgy like he used to.
Rey v Cody Rhodes:
It takes 2 to tango. Lets say Cody had a feud with R-Truth. I doubt either of them would come out as a better superstar. Cody feuding with an established wrestler, like Rey, could catapult him to the next level, without JOBBING. Its been done before-Triple H beat Sheamus at Mania last year, and the match wasn't one sided, like you'd expect. Where did Sheamus go from there? He won the WWE title again. And don't compare Ric to Rey. Ric is much older, and does all of those things that you say he did. I don't see Rey on the floor praying for mercy, or falling down. Just because someone is "old", doesn't mean that they can't still go. Rey isn't even that old, hes what-38? There are older talent that can still wrestle well: Kurt Angle is the perfect example here. Hes 42, and still wrestle great matches. Other guys who are around Rey's age, and can still go? Christian, Mr Anderson, Matt Morgan, Sheamus, Edge, and even R-Truth(he can move pretty fast, and athletically for a 39 year old).
Daniel Bryan v Sheamus:
Why is he the best wrestler in the world? I think common sense would answer that question. What he does in his matches in WWE are just a fraction of what hes capable of. They won't let him do most of his moveset that he used on the indys, and won't let him have matches that are over 30 minutes, because hes not "established" enough. Go watch some of his ROH matches on Youtube, and you'l see what I'm talking about.
And why the fuck should The Miz be called the best wrestler in the world? Because hes holding the WWE title? In that case, you can add several more names to that list. I said wrestler
, not entertainer. The Miz is more of an entertainer, than a wrestler. Daniel Bryan is more of a wrestler, than an entertainer. You see what I'm getting at here? And by the way, the US title has been around since 1975. Only the belt design has changed. The names you listed up there were after the design of the belt changed, to the current one we have now. That list doesn't look impressive, except from Benoit's name on it. But the names that came from the 70s, 80s, and 90s sure as fuck made that title prestigious. Daniel Bryan's reminding us of that prestige, by having a long title reign, defending it often, and putting on great matches.
In conclusion: If you watch Wrestlemania, for free, and still feel cheated, then you shouldn't even watch it in the first place. As someone who is passionate about wrestling, I will order this PPV, and enjoy watching it.
