It’s that time of year again for Wrestlemania and as a wrestling fan I will be watching. Despite what people think of it, it’s quite entertaining for me. I wanted to share my review of last year plus what I think of the matches lined up for this year. I won’t be doing a full review of the show so this will due. Be sure to click the links below:
For those that don’t have the network and unless you have a nifty way of watching for free, you’d be paying nearly $60 for the pay per view. I’ve been a subscriber of the network from the beginning and the best perk is definitely the 12 pay per views a year. As for this years Wrestlemania there are quite a few matches I’m looking forward to. Of course there is the pre-show which has the tag-team championship bout which is just like last year. Again the tag team division gets no love. I think all titles should be defended at Wrestlemania in the MAIN EVENT. Also in the pre show is the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Cesaro won that last year, so it’ll be interesting who wins this year.
As for the main show there’s the Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match. There’s a lot of competition in that one, but out of everyone I don’t expect R-Truth to win. Undertaker returns to face Bray Wyatt which I find to be quite interesting. Undertaker just turned 50 and it’s about time for him to retire, for good, although he is the epitome of Wrestlemania. Maybe next year he’ll be inducted into the Hall of Fame in his home state of Texas. It’ll be a great match for Wyatt as he is the new face of fear. Although every time he speaks I hear him yelling, “We Are Sparta.”
The match that I’m really looking most forward to is Triple H versus Sting. Sting has never wrestled in a WWE ring and is Mr. WCW. This match is not Sting versus Triple H, this is WCW vs. WWE. As much as people don’t care for the authority, this match goes deeper than that. Being that Triple H is the “Authority” he’ll probably lose.
Another match I’m looking forward to is Orton versus Rollins. Babyface Orton has been waiting to demolish the arrogant Seth Rollins. Looks like their career paths parallel as far as “push” and attitude. Orton is as cocky and arrogant as they come and Rollins is a match. In ring skills will be great as Randy is still on his game and Rollins is one of the best in the ring right now. It’ll be a great one for sure. Rollins wins either way as I can see him cashing in his briefcase.
Oh yeah The Bella Twins versus AJ Lee & Paige. Too bad the Divas don’t get the respect and credit they deserve. A lot of them have talent, but it’s like WWE doesn’t know how to utilize them. So why not take the “best” 4 and make a tag team match. Wooptie Doo. It’s really just a filler.
Cena verus Rusev should be interesting. John Cena needs to turn heel or something. He’s back to where he stared in his career, a match for the United States Championship. The FACE of the WWE is in a match at Wrestlemania for the United States Championship. Is it a downgrade if he wins? Could the Rusev streak be beaten. Who knows.
The match that I could care less about is Brock Lesnar versus Roman Reigns. Realistically, Brock will demolish Roman. If Roman does win, Seth can come out and cash in his Money in the Bank. That would be quite interesting because then it’d be another triple threat for the title because both Reigns and Lesnar would be entitled to rematches.
