    Apparently the 10 year old kid was WWE ref John Cone's son.  Still would have been better if they used an actual wrestler.  now the tag team championship division is a joke.  Overall i would give Wrestlemania like a 6 out of 10.

    I would have loved James Ellsworth in that spot. Him and Braun could have made a good tag team. Kind of like a Booker T/Goldust goofy team.

    Following the Rousey match, I thought this had the chance to be an all-time great WrestleMania. But it went off the rails with the Cena/Ellias/Undertaker crap. Forget about how dumb it was. It took like 40 minutes from Cena's entrance to it ending. That's what's been killing WrerstleMania for me. These LONG segments in the middle of the show that aren't entertaining and take way too long. Last year it was Rock and Cena with Rowan. Two years ago it was Rock and Rousey. And does every match need a long video package? I dunno. Five hours is too long for anything.

    Rousey and Stephanie were great. I was down on Rousey coming into this due to how lame she's been booked (as a smiling goofball) but she was great in the match.

    No. Every match doesn't need a long video package if they're already showing them on the pre-show. However, I'm sure people would still complain if they took away the video packages on some of the matches, calling for equality etc. I can't believe the level of butt hurt about the main event on Twitter.

    I watched it.  As a guy who doesnt watch wrestling, but was into it back in the day:

    I don't think it was bad.  Some things were.  Overall, I thought it was fun to watch for the most part

    I thought the Flair match was awesome and the best match of the night.  The Rousey match was fun too from the standpoint of HHH and Angle nostalgia and large fan excitement.  Rousey/Stephanie botched a number of moves and when she was "beating up" HHH it looked ridiculous.  Daniel Bryan match was fun for the same reasons. 

    I also really like how they had Bryan and Lesnar win to flip the script on what was "obvious"

    The Cena thing was embarrassingly awful.  I liked him in the crowd and sprinting in the back.  Once he got in the ring though.... oof.  They drew it out so the undertaker got like 16 pops over the course of the segment. ZZZZZZ.  Cena getting "scared" was over the top bad.

    Not a lot of great personalities though outside of the women TBH.  What are they doing?

    Main event... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.  2 boring slow guys with no charisma. Nobody likes either one so the crowd isnt into it.  Its just an f-5 and spear-fest.  For a wrestlemania main event it was a 1/10.

    No. Why would you be upset that the censor someone swearing on what's intended to be a PG rated product? They've never NOT censored it.

    yea but we pay for it. It's like if HBO or Showtime muted the curse words. Although all of cable shouldn't be censored. I understand because they have advertisers.

    I pay to see Finding Dory as well. That doesn't mean I'm the primary audience that it is catering for. I hear what you're saying and all man, but I just think if that's the biggest complaint that you have about WrestleMania, then it was a pretty good year.

    not saying it's my biggest complaint. But it's an observation. And it's a live show.

    A live show with a 9 second delay in case something needs to be censored, yes!  =) What was your match of the night anyway?

    yeah if this was the attitude area probably but overall no i was a little surprised though.

    My favorite match was probably either Charlotte vs Asuka or Roussey and Angle vs Trips and Steph

    any poster collectors in here? I just bought the Daniel Bryan print by Dan Mumford whose done a bunch of super popular eddie prints
  • ConorKavanaghConorKavanagh 27Posts: 306
    No. I tend to go for t-shirts. However, I'd be interested to see what that poster is like if you have a link or are able to upload a picture of your one?

    Should have seen Braun & "Nicholas" relinquish the RAW tag team belts last night.  Nice to see the Authors of Pain in RAW and Broken Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt team.  Spice things up.  Also i'm guessing Bobby Lashley wins the greatest Royal Rumble in the next few weeks (if not him def. Braun).  Funniest segment from RAW last night...

    I would love it if Daniel Bryan finally got that moment where he won a Royal Rumble and then challenged A.J Styles for the WWE Championship. Having said that, who knows what the landscape is going to look like after the Superstar Shakeup next week. I hope he stays there. Did anyone watch SmackDown & 205 Live last night? I'm so happy that Carmella has finally won the Women's Championship after so long.

    Ha ha, oh man, just your luck. I make sure that I avoid all spoilers until I've seen the show usually. I wouldn't even look at this thread until then!

    not a fan of Carmella.  Hope she loses the belt pretty quickly.  Daniel Bryan vs AJ Styles was pretty fun, too bad it was interrupted by Shinsuke.  Next week is the superstar shakeup, wonder who goes where?

    Yeah. I've no idea of any moves really but I know that the main one I'd be hoping for would be Finn Bálor to SmackDown and Becky Lynch to Raw.

    I think it's crazy how much coverage this is getting. But I guess The Miz was the one who was right all along. He's got his finger on the pulse guys!

    Superstar Shakeup tonight, could be pretty interesting. 

    Not sure what the deal is with Rusev.  First Chris Jericho replaces him in a casket match with the Undertaker at the greatest Royal Rumble, now apparently its back on.  Hopefully he stays with WWE.  At first I didn't really care for him but after awhile he kinda grew on me and he seems pretty funny in real life.

    I was so happy when Jeff Hardy won the United States Championship. I guess he's going to get a little bit of a push for the next while. Hopefully.
