Are We The Only Ones?

So it is about 7pm on Monday (GMT/UK Time) and I have yet to sleep yet so it still feels like Sunday, I have one question in mind. Are Nathan and I the only ones who thought Wrestlemania really was great? Im seeing ALOT of negative posts all over the internet (mostly from people revolving around TNA, be they superstars or fans) but ALOT of negative posts about the Wrestlemania I would say that wasn’t the greatest but it sure as hell was up there in my top list!

I see it like this, I grew up on the Rock/Austin era so I don’t count Andre/Hogan etc in this but in my top Wrestlemania’s I have to count this past Wrestlemania in the top 5.

1. Wrestlemania 17
2. WM 20
3.  25
4. Last night
5. Not sure

I won’t go into too much detail because we recorded our Wrestlemania recap at 5am last night (1 hour after Wrestlemania had finished) so I really just want someone to come forward and either say it was better than what I thought it was or just someone who rated it higher than that of what I am saying. There is one bit I will go into now and that is how shocked I was when the doctor/trainer or whatever the dude was when he was checking The Undertaker’s palse because that really got me worried, we all want to see 20-0 and have The Undertaker bow out but I really think he doesn’t have it in him to even come back, I have a feeling tonight on RAW we could see the last of The Undertaker, if we even get that!

Personally I do not know what I am looking forward to the most tonight: My pizza, RAW or going to sleep for the first time since Saturday night!

Enjoy the podcast on Thursday :)

    Undertaker will disappear for a while then come back probably in time for Summerslam or Survivor Series of that I have little doubt. I’m about the same age as you and have been watching the WM anthology to get me in the right mood and would say this would never enter into my top anything.

    Mania normally has 1-3 classic matches. If you can point to a single match other than HHH v Undertaker (maybe Miz/Cena) that people will remember in 6 months or a year I will be suprised.

      If he does come back im doubting Summerslam/Survivor Series at this stage, last time he came back he got injured and there was doubt he would even make it to this WM so if he does come back im thinking it won’t be until Jan/Feb.

      As for Mania: It’s not really down to the matches anymore really, I only really noticed this earlier but it really goes in hand with this whole thing of them wanting to be known as an entertainment company, the show entertained me more than others. Yeah match wise it was poor as hell but entertainment wise it was definitely my top 5 after alot of poor WMs.

    Yeah I think the problem is they are neither a wrestling company nor really an entertainment show like they were in the 80’s but a bit of both hence most people didn’t like WM as much as might be expected.

    Last year Taker got injured twice. Once before Summerslam thanks to Rey I think and once at some point during the Kane feud so it is possible this will just be a few month gap for him to recover from his surgery and Mania. I doubt He would stay off TV for 6-9 months but you never know.
