You may not all agree, but in my opinion, by the end of Night One I had already decided Wrestlemania was a night too long this year. It says a lot that Bad Bunny's albeit very impressive performance was actually a highlight of night one. That really is all I have to say about the entire thing except for the fact that Bianca Belair is a performer who deserved the main event win at the Grandest Stage of them all. Spectacular athleticism, great emotion and storytelling with a deserved title win in front of the fans who ate it up.
Then came night two, which I wasn't all that excited about. Alexa Bliss, Randy and Bray Wyatt knocked their segment out of the park, the matches were massively improved and the stakes felt infinitely higher. This felt like Wrestlemania to me. Which begs the question, given the fact WWE have struggled to put together two intriguing episodes of Raw together in a row for quite some time now, what made them think a two day event was a good idea in the first place?
They couldn't even come up with a new introduction package, just rehashed the same idea from last year. Don't get me started on how dumb it is to openly mock your own product in the opening video of the biggest event of the year.
Considering just how much content they pump out now, its no wonder they are struggling to put on special shows. They haven't built a true superstar in a long time, Punk hasn't returned and with 3 hours of Raw and 2 hours of Smackdown, plus NXT and any other shows they pump out there aren't any matches we haven't seen before.
Its high time WWE tried going with the less is more option, cut the programming, concentrate on intriguing storylines and building a new generation of stars before they burn out every last one of their fans. Which given the way their tv ratings have been trending doesn't seem too far away.
