Wrestlemania 36- Tampa Bay Bay

Recommended Posts

The first 90 minutes of Night 1 were so interminably bad I turned off and went to bed. The action did pick up when I resumed this evening thankfully but nothing mind blowing. I did however enjoy the effort to try something with the Boneyard match. It's nowhere near as good as some people are making out but it did make it seem like running this show at all was not a complete waste. I'm glad some people got a kick out of it though. Let's see what Night 2 brings....

The Undertaker definitely tele-ported.

I said this earlier but AJ Styles came across much better being in character. I loved his heel work a few years ago 'The Champ That Runs The Camp' but he came across really well here and was the best I have seen him (character wise) as the cocky bad guy trying to put the old dog down. If WWE invested more time & effort in everyone having a persona the product would be in a much better place, the annoying thing is that he will probably revert to his normal type now which no one gives a shit about.

Right, just dropped a bit of LSD. Got some beers, couple gram, bottle of rum, Xannax and some DMT just in case. I am determined to enjoy Wrestlemania one way or another.

Not since WrestleMania X7 has Little Spike Dudley been dropped in such a manner.

I'm really surprised at the massive positive response to the Taker match. This is the first match in some time I feel such a major detachment to the apparent consensus.

They can spent hundreds of millions to make Robert Di Nero look young again, surely they can get Big Kev to squash Braun at WrestleMania tonight.

I watched the first match just to see what they've done with it. Granted, I've not been following WWE weekly for a while, but the first match being the women's tag match seemed like a pretty shit opener. Some big name or big stipulation would go some way to helping overcome the initial oddness of it being in front of no crowd. Then Baron Corbin came out and I went to sleep.

I got a message today saying to make sure to check out the main event because it's great and I'd seen a message in a group WhatsApp saying it was incredible. It didn't do it for me. I was a big fan of the Broken Matt Hardy stuff in TNA because it was so ridiculous and Matt Hardy is a laugh - and Jeff Hardy's acting is shite which makes it even funnier. Good on them for doing something different and stuff away from the ring - I think it's the right direction to do more of that both now and in general without a pandemic. Just didn't think it lived up to the hype. It seemed to be played too seriously - I know he teleports, there's pyro and druids but that's par for the course with Taker anyway.

Cheers for letting us know.

I assume you are kidding but if not... Well let me know how it is when you inevitably have to watch it again in a few days.

 

The Taker stuff was the highlight of a terrible show. It wasnt fantastic or anything, but was good in a cheesy laugh kind of way. Wrestling doesnt work without a crowd, so this shit worked better.

If he didn't tell you about his drug use and his appearance in porn, how would you know how cool he is?

I'm really struggling with this lack of crowd. I realise they have no other choice and understand the rationale of presenting a show when pretty much every major sport is on hold. But the lack of feedback just sucks out so much out of the presentation and you can tell that the wrestlers struggle with it too.

The fact that so many of them are still presenting that signature poses on the way in etc, which are pretty hokey at the best of times, comes across as utterly cringeworthy when there's no one there apart from the timekeeper and a couple of cameramen. Its also pretty funny when, out of habit, they try to garner a non-existent crowd response to something.
