It’s WrestleMania season!! That magical time of year where everyone tries to forget how awful the current WWE product is and spends thousands of dollars to attend the show or devotes 7 plus hours on what is usually one of the first nice Sundays of the year to watch a show that will either remind you why you love wrestling or, in more recent years, remind you why you are starting to hate it! Everyone likes to bust out the “it’sWrestleMania, it’s always good!” arguments this time of year, so it’s time to bust that myth with the worst WrestleMania of all time!! And you know who booked it, BRO!
Join Justin C and Cam as they preview the ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE known as Wrestlemania 33! We run down the entire card and give our thoughts as to who will walk out Universal Champion, what is next for Roman Reigns, and how the WWE got us to care about this mixed tag match?
Shane McMahon/AJ Styles Contract Signing
-They are in Richmond, and I would say the crowd is pretty firmly behind Styles. Assuming that’s the same this Sunday.
-Shane said him and Daniel Bryan set a vision to make Smackdown Live a place where every wrestler could perform to their fullest potential. He says Styles is one of the best wrestlers to ever set foot in the ring. Duh.
-Shane said it was Styles ego that is hurting him. And his ego was causing him to miss Wrestlemania. Wait, if Styles is the best wrestler in the world, shouldn’t Shane have him in a match at Wrestlemania??? Shane said if AJ lets his ego get to him, then it will be his hand raised at Wrestlemania.
-During the opening intro a bunch of Undertaker titantron clips played. He’s hacking RAW.
-Bayley comes out to talk about being excited for Wrestlemania. You know, I don’t think these promos are going to work for her in the long run.
-Here comes Charlotte to rip on Bayley and tells her Sasha is the only reason she is Women’s Champion. Sasha comes out and Nia does as well.
-Somewhere Teddy Long is itching to make a tag team match.
-Sasha attacks Charlotte and apparently a tag match was already on the horizon as we go to commercial.
It happens in almost anything you watch. It is especially the case in sports. You have a favorite that you followed during their entire career. You enjoyed the great times but stuck with them during the down times. But when the end of the road is coming, most of the time you see it before the performer. You don’t want it to happen, but you know it is time for your favorite to hang it up and retire.
And I think we have reached that point with The Undertaker.
Recently, I began doing something amazing. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and attend a live wrestling show in January. This wasn’t the first show I’ve been to, far from it, but it was the first I went to alone in years. I struggle with a bit of social anxiety when I am in large crowds by myself. My wife usually attends shows with me if I go, but when the show was on a Sunday afternoon, it’s not easy to get someone to watch your two kids. There had been plenty of shows in my area before, but this one was different. Matt Riddle, a wrestler who is quickly becoming one of the hottest wrestlers on the indy scene, was going to be wrestling Brian Cage. There were other wrestlers advertised, but it didn’t matter. Matt Riddle was wrestling Brian Cage 15 minutes from my house. I had to go
That is how I was introduced to Beyond Wrestling.
-AJ Styles is out to start the show. He’s happy because he beat the hell out of Shane McMahon last week.
-Styles said he isn’t sorry for what he did to Shane last week.
-Styles officially accepted Shane’s challenge at Wrestlemania. It was met with a handful of boos.
So last week I was a little negative. I was a little hard on the ending of Raw and I’m woman enough to admit that. I am ready to give them a chance to prove to me that Seth Rollins having a triumphant return only to be battered by HHH within the same 5 minute window was a good idea. Let’s Go! Continue reading
Last year’s Wrestlemania sucked. Lets get that out of the way right now. From an entertainement standpoint, this year’s Wrestlemania should blow last year’s away. The wrestling alone on the show with the matches already announced should be good. Jericho/Owens and Neville/Aries, if given time, should be very good matches. And we all know AJ Styles can pull a 3 star match out of anything. So wrestling wise this year’s Wrestlemania will easily top Wrestlemania 31, or Wrestlemania Star if you remember.
My issue with this year’s Wrestlemania, the ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE, is that it isn’t living up to its fullest potential.
AJ Styles Opening Promo
-After confronting Daniel Bryan about last week’s situation, Styles said he is going to the ring to speak his mind.
-Styles said Bryan and Shane are making him jump through hoops to get what he wants, when they rolled out the red carpet for Cena.
-Styles runs down everything that happened over the last few weeks. He said Orton didn’t get arrested for burning down Bray’s shack. Instead he was rewarded with the main event of Wrestlemania. AJ knows!
