Thoughts on Wrestlemania

A farily satisfactory 'Mania for me, better than last year

The results are a bit questionable...out of all the champions (on the main show, not the kick-off), only Owens, Bayley and Naomi aren't nostalgia acts. Hardyz return was the worst kept secret in the business this week but it's nice that the culmination of their expedition of gold story-line across the promotions culminated at Wrestlemania. I don't know what was up with that Orton/Wyatt match...were they actually treating it like an MMORPG at several points? Really felt like Wyatt should have gotten the best of Orton and outmaneuvered him mentally.

HHH vs Rollins told a solid story and I'm glad the match was kept specifically to them and Stephanie with no intervention from Balor or Joe or whatever. It kept the attention on Rollin's plight and made his comebacks more engaging. Love Stephanie taking her annual 'Mania bumps, and she was smoking hot coming down on HHH's motorcycle.

Reigns vs Undertaker was as good as it could be given the circumstances...kind of deflated near the end, 'Taker was gassed. and Reigns was largely in charge of the match...you'd think that was commendable of him to take control of the yard, but I think he botched an attempt at a reverse tombstone at one point

Thoughts on the post-Wrestlemania RAW

I like that Brawn Strowman has quickly recovered from being eliminated in the battle royale and put straight back into contention with Reigns and possibly Lesnar. It should keep Reigns busy in the spring months and get on with business as usual without turning. And then there's the draft coming up. Reigns was rumored to be heading to Smackdown, so that would not free him up for a universal title shot unless shenanigans.

It was wise to close the show out on a feel good NXT graduate showcase and a Balor return also. I think they can build to a Balor/Lesnar match at Summerslam), and maybe give Reigns his win back on Balor also at some point after

I've not seen wrestling in years, but I was a bit of a fan of it (as were my friends) back in the WWF days with The Rock, Tripple H and Kane. I recently saw that The Undertaker has retired.

Yeah, though Undertaker probably should have retired when he extended the now-broken streak to 20-0 in 2012 or at least did the favour to CM Punk (Punk probably would have stayed on with the company if he had that kind of momentum)

I don't know if you've ever seen 5 Dollar Wrestling but I recommend watching whatever you can find. They don't make them any more and it was an "ironic"-on purpose so bad it's good type of thing by low level comedians. Freight Train was the man.

LOL That was great, it ran away with itself, loved it when he stood up to cut some of it before sittting back down...bald guy reminds me a bit of Paul Ellering.
