The Hart-McMahon Anti-Climax

Yes, I watched the Bret Hart/Vince McMahon Wrestlemania match tonight. I don't watch WWE much anymore, but since it was pretty much the last unrealized "dream match" left that hadn't happen, I figured I needed to watch.

Honestly? Ugh. It's not so much that it was a 60-something non-wrestler fighting against a 50-something guy who was presumably retired for injury reasons. It was just plain an ugly scene- Hart beating up McMahon for 15 minutes looked like an old man beating up an even older man.

Revenge, long in the making, that was anti-climatic, bungled, and way-too-late. Reminded me quite a bit of Saddam Hussein's execution.

UPDATE: The Atlantic's ace political blogger Marc Ambinder, a noted wrestling fan, live-tweeted Wrestlemania tonight. It's apropos, since wrestling and politics are more or less the same thing these days.
