Aside from the historical main event, this year's WrestleMania looks like it's shaping up to be pretty terrible.

It's almost always terrible. I don't watch weekly shows or most of the ppvs, but still unfortunately watch Mania and the Rumble by default. It's been years since I seen one that was more good than bad.

XXX Maybe?

The last Mania I remember enjoying start to finish was X-Seven.

This year they are literally using filler for what will be a 5 hour event.

30, 31 & 34 were alright for me.

Well aren't we being mister optimistic. I'm expecting this shitshow + the pre-shitshow to be at least 8 hours of straight up mediocrity. 

 

We'll see about the main event. Could be Botchamania, could be decent. If Becky doesn't win, the crowd might reject it entirely. But I'm sort of assuming they're closing Mania with a shot of all the horsewomen holding up titles or something. 

Couldn't care less about Brock vs Seth. It's bland and I'm not really seeing either of them as champ. 

Styles-Orton will either be very good or a 5-minute-resthold-fest followed by one RKO (out of nowhere).

Objectively, Murphy-Neese will probably be MOTN, but nobody will give a crap. 

Bryan-Kofi will probably be good. As will Joe vs Rey if they don't put in that Dominick shit. 

Angle-Corbin will be a swerve, and Angle is an immobile shell of his former self. 

Oh and I guess HHH-Batista might be a good brawl, but it might also be a slow-paced ringrust-ridden smoke and mirrors type of thing. 

The rest of the card, don't care tbh.

Since they're the go-home shows for Mania, I decided to watch RAW and Smackdown. Big mistake... That was awful...

Really looking to the show tonight. NJPW in a sold out Madison Square Garden.

Most of the card looks great. Just hope the ROH parts don't go too long.

These fans clearly didn't pay to watch ROH.

Pretty sure most of the crowd didn't watch 2008 TNA either.

ROH is awful, this is a fucking car crash.

-edit-

Shows over now. Ibushi/Naito was my match of the weekend, not their best but great. Liked Okada/White too. Ospreay/Cobb wasn't as good as expected, but good too.

It's a shame the Junior title match only got 9 mins. 

The Tag title match was fine for what it was. Enzo and Cass supposedly was a ROH work. Pretty bad, also distracted from the Tana/Sabre match.

However the Women's match wasn't good. The Bully Ray match/segement was bad and left a poor taste.

I actually zoned out during the ladder match, because of the ROH antics earlier. So was fine, but wasn't paying attention. 

NJPW would be better of distanting themselves from ROH.

I saw some of Wrestlemania from last night. The match with the Miz and Shane of Mac was funny. That last move was amazing. I don't know how neither of them got injured in any way.

Crazy.

Glad Roman Raines was back and awesome as ever!

Was sorry not to see Mrs. Miz and little Monroe. Maybe next time.

I haven't watched the event. May check out the main event later in the week, but the card did nothing to excite me in the first place.

That Kofi Bryan match might be the best Mania match I've seen.

Easily the highlight of the show imo.

I'd dare say most takeovers so far have been really great. I generally like it better than most regular PPV's.

Loved the Joan Jett playing Ronda to the ring.

Same. I know most people don’t like Ronda, but I’ve enjoyed her WWE run.
