Not a long time ago I’ve said that I would stop writing these WWE reviews. Dean Ambrose’s promos for the Intercontinental Championship made me change my mind. But now I’m ending this for good. It was a slow process of being disappointed and then not caring anymore. So this is my final say on WWE and all around WrestleMania.
On the last RAW before WrestleMania the last statements were set and WWE tried to make sure that predictions are still hard to make. But the best possible hype for the show was certainly created by Brock Lesnar one day after RAW because with that in mind I have to rethink my predictions.
Yes, I’m challenging the task of writing down my thoughts on all 23 Slammy categories without finishing at ten thousand words. It will be an adventure and I invite you to follow this path with me.
It was about time +++ European brawling +++ Careful with that stuntman, Miz! +++ Officer Shaw is serving justice +++ Russia can not be defeated +++ Chris Jericho is the best at what he has no idea +++ Nikki Bella is DM Punk +++ Seth Rollins rather wants to be killed by Brock Lesnar than haunted by Dean Ambrose
Steph! Steph! Steph +++ Mizzz isn’t an A-lister – he’s an A-hole +++ Seth Rollins forgets to name his challengers for the Ice Bucket Challenge +++ AJ Lee dedicates her life to Paige +++ Suplex – repeat, cont. +++ Cesaro impersonates Muhammad Ali +++ Sheamus is an incredible U.S. champ +++ It’s a Falls Count Anywhere match +++ Kendos, Chairs, and a Table +++ Charles Robinson has got a déjà-vu +++ This is awesome3 +++ Dean Ambrose’s head is harder than cinder blocks
I should have known it +++ The Flag Match wasn’t a Flag Match +++ Just another Match of the Year contender +++ Blackout +++ The part-timer is handed another present
My expectations for this show are exorbitant! I’m telling you. One of the reasons is that I’ll watch it live and go to work just two hours later. So, me basically putting myself in some sort of a jet lag needs to be worth it. Much will depend on Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins and I hope it is scheduled for as late as possible. On paper, most matches look interesting but most importantly are unique and not done already for a couple of times. This really could be a great PPV. After the disappointment that was Battleground, improvement isn’t very hard this time anyway.
