WrestleMania since its inception has always been pro-wrestling’s biggest show, for better and worse. All eyes in the world focus on WWE and what they’ll do every year. Say what you will about WWE and Vince McMahon’s booking but this man knows how to grab people’s attention.
This year’s WrestleMania was another one for the ages. The best way to describe this year’s WrestleMania is with the word madness, and this is a compliment.
One of the things that is so bizarre about WWE is that they don’t operate like most wrestling promotions do, and that can be a double edged sword for them on certain occasions, and in others it can give us things like Knoxville vs. Zayn, a totally bonkers match and one of the highlights of the two-night event.
The wrestling purist in me kinda hates this year’s WrestleMania, but the goofier side of me had a blast. WWE would be more enjoyable to watch if it was closer to what we saw these last two nights every week. A combination of good wrestling and outlandish things.
While the fun and wackiness of Knoxville vs. Zayn was hilarious and Vince McMahon taking the worst stunner ever were amusing in their own right, the shows were not far from negative moments. Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar don’t seem to have any in-ring chemistry at all and this match was yet again another spamming finishers fest from them, instead of the bloody war most people wanted to see from both wrestlers.
Going back to the positives of WrestleMania, Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch had the best proper match for WWE this weekend. After the blunder of last year’s Summer Slam, this was the perfect match and Belair once again being WWE RAW Women’s champion.
This WrestleMania was really fun to watch a d the crowd felt electric, let’s see what’s next for WWE in the months to come.
