Wrestlemania

I came with low expectations. It was just above average with a couple solid matches.

Nothing to look back in a few weeks.

Kalisto vs. Ryback (United States Championship)

Average match. A few nice spots, but nothing special.

Unless creative handles Kalisto better, this might have been a mistake.

5/10

Total Divas vs. B.A.D. and Blonde

A match that just shouldn’t have happened. Was great to see Nikki, but this match lacked the time it needed to do more, but maybe it was for the better.

3/10

The Usos vs. The Dudley Boyz

Another short match that shouldn’t happen either.

3/10

Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match

So glad for Zack. I’ve been a fan for a long time. Owens outgrew the belt long ago. Wish this moves him to the main event level.

Way better match than what I expected.

9/10

AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho

Solid match, but not especial. A missed opportunity to launch AJ. Not sure extending this feud is smart. I’ve enjoyed Jericho a lot.

7/10

The New Day vs. League of Nations (3 on 3)

Was an average match followed by a great Wrestlemania moment with Foley, Shawn and Stone Cold.

6/10

Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose (Street Fight)

Match sadly felt weak. Seeing 13 suplexes became old quickly. As I predicted it came short in violence after all the hints.

6/10

Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks (Women’s Championship)

women's title

Besides some missed spots and a wrong result IMO, thus was a great match.

This is indeed the start of a new era in the Women’s division. Was great to see this match being portrayed as a main event of sorts.

Still think Charlotte should have lost. Winning with Nate’s help is getting old, really old.

8/10 (9/10 without the botches)

Shane McMahon vs. Undertaker (Hell in a Cell)

Shane did what was needed with the spot at the end. I thought that was going to be the only thing really good in the match but I was wrong. They held the match way better than Ambrose/Brock match IMO.

8/10

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Nothing great besides Corbin’s win. I don’t think he’s ready for the main roster. He’ll get swallowed in limbo pretty soon (although he is used to that in NxT already).

6/10

The Rock Meets Bray Wyatt and His Family

Besides seeing the Rock and some good mic work this was a burial of Wyatt’s talent. I would have preffered he didn’t show up at all on Wrestlemania.

From facing the Undertaker to serve as Rock’s joke target. A disgrace!

Triple H vs. Roman Reigns (WWE World Heavyweight Championship)

I loved HHH’s entrance including Steph’s involvement, but the match didn’t work out as well for me. Hell in a Cell or even the Women’s title match would have been a better closer to the show.

On top of that, we got Reigns as a champion again. We’ll see how this pans out but we already heard the crowd express their feelings on that match.

6/10

Conclusion

I believe the show worked out pretty well. A few surprises and few bad booking decisions but nothing that can’t be fixed.

Main show: 7/10
Including pre-show: 6/10
Overall show: 7/10
