Dot Net reader K. Greene attended WrestleMania 29 and sent the following report.

-It was a tough crowd all night. Very few were able to garner legit heat and very few garnered legit cheers. The crowd was most active for Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H, and C.M. Punk vs. Undertaker.

-John Cena got a ton of boos, but after winning it was more less a mixed reaction. Fans in my section were peeved about the 30 Rock Bottoms and AA's that occurred during the match. It makes the finish look weak when you do it that often. Rocky got a solid response from the crowd.

-I was surprised at the lack of flair in the entrances. Fandango had the most creative one to me, although Triple H and Undertaker had great ones also.

-Honestly, that mixed tag match would have sucked, but it would have got the kids in the crowd going. It's a crime that all four were not on the pay-per-view, but Fandango and Big E Langston were. Why wasn't Kofi Kingston on the card? Antonio Cesaro? Divas Title?

-While Fandango might have a bright future in WWE, he generated no real response from the crowd. Some people in the audience asked who exactly is he again? Yikes.

-The biggest pops of the night went to two part timers and a retired wrestler? Yikes.

- Overall, I'm glad I only paid 40 dollars to see this. The undercard of the show wasn't that great, although the World Heavyweight Championship match was a great technical showing. I'd give the show a C-.

Biggest Pops:
The Rock
Shawn Micheals

Most Heat:
The Shield
Brock Lesnar
C.M. Punk
