WWE have done it again and reeled me back in. I was never going to watch this years Mania when they still had an arena and crowd. It might only be night 1 depending on how it goes tomorrow, but I’m more intrigued for this than any of the past years. 

That’s what I find odd about all the moaning. People are complaining that it’s going to be shit because it’s being done differently, yet they think it’s shit every year the way it’s normally done anyway. So at worst, it’s another WrestleMania they don’t like, but it’s at least going to stand out a bit from the last ten WrestleManias they didn’t like.

I don’t want to Google it in case I stumble across them myself, but are spoilers out for Wrestlemania? Or is it just the usual betting odds? I read that Sports Illustrated reported WWE had decreed leaking Mania spoilers would be a sackable offence so I didn’t know if miserable guys like The Revival might’ve seen leaking them as a way out.

Been keeping an eye out but haven't seen any. Allegedly there have been multiple endings filmed too.

Seen some fake spoilers, like guys claiming Roman Reigns won the Universal Championship before it got out that he was pulled from the show.

Im gonna be quite excited going in, out of intrigue more than anything. Then, halfway through the opening match i'll think "fuck this".

It’s like the early 90s all over again if you didn’t have sky. Can’t wait to read the results in June’s wwf magazine!

That'll be why The Revival don't have a match.

Hasn't one of them already left? And the other one has a longer contract due to injury so they're just wearing down the clock?

Was going to do this as a separate thread but, having rewatched 26 last week I thought it’d be interesting looking back at what the line up for this year’s event were doing at (if there were in the company) or around that event 10 years ago

WWE Title

Brock Lesnar was still 2 years away from returning to the company and was reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion but sitting on the sidelines through illness, Drew McIntyre was reigning Intercontinental Champion and was part of the Money in the Bank ladder match at Mania

Universal Title

(won’t refer to Goldberg’s opponent by name incase no one has seen SD)

Goldberg was out the business and had been for 7 years but the month of Mania 26 he appeared as a contestant on a celebrity version of the US Apprentice, his opponent had not begun his wrestling career

Boneyard Match

AJ Styles was in the midst of a 200+ day run as TNA World Champion mentored by Ric Flair before losing it to RVD, Undertaker was in the main event of Mania, ending Shawn Michaels career to extend the streak to 18-0

FireFly FunHouse Match

Bray Wyatt was working in FCW as Duke Rotundo and was a couple of months away from being part of the second ‘series’ of NXT where he would be renamed Husky Harris, John Cena beat Batista at Mania to become WWE Champion for a 7th time

Last Man Standing Match

Edge faced Chris Jericho in a losing effort for the World Heavyweight Title while Orton beat Cody and Ted DiBiase Jr in a triple threat/handicap match

Raw Women’s Title

Becky Lynch was on her hiatus from the business due to an injury suffered in 2006, she made an official return in a managerial role for Shimmer the following year, Shayna Baszler was competing in MMA for Freestyle Cage Fighting winning a second round match in a tournament she would later win

Smackdown Women’s Title Fatal Five Way

Defending champion Bayley was working for Big Time Wrestling as Davina Rose, Sasha Banks was undergoing wrestling training and wouldn’t debut until August that year for NECW under the name Mercedes KV, Lacey Evans was a year into her role with the Marines as a police officer, Tamina made her WWE debut 2 months after Mania along with the Uso’s beating down the Hart Dynasty while Naomi was working in FCW

NXT Women’s Title

Rhea Ripley was only 13 at the time of Mania and wouldn’t begin her career for another 3 years, Charlotte (under her birth name Ashley) had appeared on WCW broadcasts as a teenager during Ric’s feud with Vince Russo and was present for her dad’s Hall of Fame induction and final WWE match at Mania 24, she signed a developmental deal 2 years later

Women’s Tag Team Titles

Asuka was working under the name Kana for Neo Japan Ladies Pro Wrestling, Kairi Sane was a theatre actor and didn’t begin training until 2011, Alexa Bliss was 18 and at University while Nikki Cross was on the BritWres scene as Nikki Storm

Intercontinental Title

Sami Zayn was working the Indies under the masked gimmick El Generico, mainly for ROH, Daniel Bryan was a part of the first series of NXT being coached by The Miz

Raw Tag Team Titles

Dawkins and Ford weren’t in the business at the time of 26, Ford was in the US Marines, Angel Garza was working in Mexico as masked wrestler El Hijo del Ninja while Austin Theory was only 13

Smackdown Tag Team Titles Ladder Match

(Based on the original announcement which was still valid as of SD)

Miz and Morrison were on opposite sides of the ring in the 26 opener as Miz teamed with Big Show to successfully defend their Unified Tag Titles against Morrison and R Truth, Miz was also US champion. Kofi was in the MITB match, Big E was in FCW while Jimmy and Jay as mentioned debuted with Tamina a couple of months after the show

Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins

Owens was working for ROH as Kevin Steen while Rollins was ROH champion under the name Tyler Black

Aleister Black vs Bobby Lashley

Black was working the BritWrest and European scene under the name Tommy End while Lashley was a free agent having left TNA in the January 

Otis vs Dolph Ziggler

Otis was in collegiate wrestling and would win a national title at the Junior Pan-Am games the following year while Ziggler was another competitor in that year’s MITB match

Elias vs King Corbin

Elias was working for minor indies in the Northeastern area of the US while Corbin was on a futures contract with NFL side the Arizona Cardinals

17 matches?! Blimey. That Raw tag team title match looks unappealing.

I remember the initial buzz about Becky Lynch / Rebecca Knox but I’d forgotten about that hiatus she took.

Christ imagine all that lot on one night, and no doubt they would have put two battle royals in there too.

I really hope this is the start of Mania going two nights in the future, but it won't be.
