Everybody is hating on this WrestleMania but this WM was, for me at least, one of the best in years. For years now I've been struggling with WWE's look for the future, I definitely don't like what they have done to everyone I cared for in the past few years so I started to lost hope for my passion, and that's really sad because I have love for it and nostalgia has hitted me real hard to not give up. But really I couldn't do it. Last year I watched only Royal Rumble, FastLane and WrestleMania and it sucked big time, I hated it like no other WrestleMania for so many reasons, but that's other discussion.
I think the reason I loved this so much is that, the nostalgia factor and I want to explain this for every match on the main card. It started with the USA ladder match, I saw some Kevin Owens work on summer, maybe one or three matches of him, and he looked cool but I wanted to see more of him, which I did this Road to WrestleMania and now I'm a big fan of him now, he's the finest heel WWE has right now and he's been doing an incredible job so props for that, he deserves it. I really like some of these guys wrestling on this match, I love Cody (who unbelievably can pull of any character), Sami and Dolph. Even though the match itself was a great match, we have seen better. Still it got awesome spots, Cody with all of the Dusty Rhodes tribute, that sick move of Zayn to Owens hitting the ladder, Sin Cara landing on Rhodes and Miz almost winning but instead they went with Zack Ryder, that was from out of nowhere. I'm not a fan of Ryder by any means but I saw his career die, he truly deserved this moment and I'm happy for him.
Then we got Y2J/AJ which was an awesome match, I'm a big fan of these two but I think Jericho needed this win. He has been downgraded in the last couple of years. He has lost and lost and lost so many times I couldn't see him winning anymore. I don't care he got out of the Styles Clash, it brought an intense moment were I really felt that was it. Styles just battled one of the greats on his very first WrestleMania, not counting that AJ has already defeated Jericho before, even by submission. With this win, Jericho can push more talent.
This is where I thought I will start felling asleep and the match was boring as hell, but we got freakin' Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley and Steve Austin saving it. We can argue that they're not making talent, but seriously do I care about LON or New Day? No, I don't and they won't make me care about them (I love BNB but he is leaving from what I've heard.). When HBK's (it is my favorite wrestler ever) music played and he came out I felt something I didn't felt for years, for those kind of moments, then Mick Foley and Steve Austin came out and for god's sake it was like turning on something that was dead for years, but not completely.
Here is one of the things I hated... Dean/Brock. Dean Ambrose is my favorite current wrestler and I expected him to lose (after all no one can beat Brock not even Taker) and Brock is a really entertaining guy, they could have done a lot more. I thought they were going to be the best match, Ambrose could have pulled off that crazy guy and just destroyed Brock with anything he had, doing whatever he needed to do. But they didn't do it, they went for the boring idea of Brock dominate the match yet again.
Then we got the Womens match, as a note I liked the title it does look like it should: a championship. This was one of the best womens match in WrestleMania history, if not the best. I'm comfortable with them being the next generation to give more justice to the division (needs more Paige though)
Now, the best part, hands down the best of the night, The Undertaker vs Shane McMahon. I loved the match and this was the match that reminded me my passion. Ever since I started watching WWE I have had a crazy dream about an elbow drop from the top of the Hell in a Cell. Every match I always thought how epic would that be. Recently, the structure changed and was far more higher so my dreams about seeing that spot simply wasn't possible, even with the old cage it was a stunt that no one had the guts to do and I don't blame them. But Shane did it and it is now one of the greatest moments I've seen in wrestling, my dream came true. Thank you, WWE, for that awesome moment that I will never forget.
The BR was boring but I didn't hate it, Baron Corbin is cool, not the best in my card but I hope he does well.
The Rock came out, gave his usual promo. Every time he comes out I don't care if he is doing it another time, he's The Rock and he is entertaining. I don't like Bray Wyatt, I think he's overrated and boring. I don't understand how he gets praised by his in-ring performances and mic. I only see him as an average wrestler which gives a random promo with no real reason for every feud he has, I don't like that. He interfered The Rock's promo (like he does with everyone, he just inserts himself because why not? and he has messed up great storylines like Ambrose/Seth) and gave his lazy promo, I was like please don't build this for a match between the two. The Rock shutted him up and buried poor Eric Rowan and then Cena came out and buried Bray Wyatt also. This was entertaining.
Then it was Roman vs. Triple H. I don't need to elaborate on this one. It was bad and everybody knows why. The promo though, that was a really awesome video package, A7X in WWE was something I hoped to see in WWE one day.
Well I thought I wasn't capable of typing so much but here you go, an honest opinion about someone who loved this WrestleMania, a different perspective. But it is ONLY my opinion and I understand you if you don't agree. If you want me to elaborate on more specific things, I can do it.
