WrestleMania 25 liveblogging Part I

By Rick Morris

Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls sings America The Beautiful to start the proceedings after the obligatory self-congratulatory "25 years of WrestleMania" video package.

Money In the Bank starts the show off tonight, with the usual spotfest ethos in place. One great comedic addition: Hornswaggle doing a tadpole splash off the top rope onto the wrestlers all out on the floor!

After shoving the ladder Kofi Kingston was climbing, Mark Henry knocked him off of there, then powerslammed him onto it. So much for "One Love!"

More great spots followed quickly thereafter and and ultimately, Kane and CM Punk climbed both sides of the same ladder. At the top of it, Punk worked his way out of a chokeslam by kicking Kane in the face before going on to become the first two-time winner of this WrestleMania specialty match.
