The Houston Chronicle Newspaper features a full-length story on Shawn Michaels vs. The UGLYtaker match from last night's WrestleMania 25. Click here to see the newspaper clipping. In relation, their website Chron.Com also has artcile up below.
Shawn Michaels, the old football player from San Antonio, and Mark Calaway, aka the Undertaker, the old basketball player from Houston, brought down the house Sunday night during WrestleMania XXV at Reliant Stadium.
Michaels and the Undertaker, scripted or not, was simply one heck of a slobberknocker.
In 31 minutes of Tombstone piledrivers, superkicks, DDTs, figure-four leglocks and crossface headlocks, the Undertaker prevailed over Michaels to run his WrestleMania record to 17-0 in the most widely anticipated event of a four-hour card that surely justified the trip to Texas for World Wrestling Entertainment fans from all 50 states and dozens of foreign countries.
“I brought my son today, and he’s 8 years old, and I’ve been watching Shawn Michaels since I was 8,” said Robert Quinones of San Antoino. “I realize it’s show, but they showed stamina and endurance. There isn’t one of us who can go in there and do what they did.”
Spectacles like Michaels vs. the Undertaker surely will stoke the same sort of devotion from WWE fans as they scatter to return home today and plot their course toward next year’s event in suburban Phoenix. Each near fall brought screams of excitement from fans watching with the naked eye from expensive floor seats or on the giant stadium monitors from the upper deck.
At the match’s end, Michaels, 43, and the Undertaker, 44, both lay on the canvas as the crowd cheered, and there’s a better than 50-50 chance that the exhaustion was real, not staged, after a half-hour’s action inside and outside the 20-by-20-foot squared circle at Reliant’s 50-yard line.
