Dan America’s Wrestlemania Review (Video)
I always wait for the Monday Night Raw after Wrestlemania to forum an opinion about Wrestlemania, because I consider the Raw after Wrestlemania to be a part of Wrestlemania.
I give Wrestlemania 32 a 7 out of 10, or a 4 star rating, because I felt that the Main Event between Triple H & Roman Reigns did not compliment the performances displayed in all of the other matches at Wrestlemania 32, in other words, it felt like Wrestlemania 32 was missing something and then they did their best to squeeze in what it was missing on Monday Night Raw.
Kalisto vs Ryback
I missed the "Kickoff" match and I am kind of glad that I did, because I like Kalisto and I like Ryback, but I hate it when the match is so predicatable that I don't have to watch it, to know what happened. Kalisto vs Ryback was a "David & Goliath" type where the little guy pulls off the victory in the end.
Team Total Divas vs Team B.A.D. & Blonde
A commercial for a Reality TV Show, I knew this before the match, who wins? For those of you who don't know, Total Divas is a Reality TV Show.
The Usos vs The Dudley Boyz
It was a great way to get the audience back into after the commercial for Total Divas. It was a fun Tag Team Match that ended with tables breaking.
Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens received one of the biggest reactions of the night from fans and all he had to do was be introduced, Owens defiantly looked pumped for Wrestlemania as he walked down the ramp to defend the IC Title against 6 other men.
The match was epic, full of high risks and clever ways to hurt someone with a ladder, things got vicious between Kevin Ownes and his rival Sammy Zayn, and in the end, the most unlikely challenger Zack Ryder, who had this match thrown at him, won the Intercontinental Championship and had his Wrestlemania moment.
Zack Ryder lost the Intercontinental Championship the next night on Raw.
Chris Jericho vs AJ Styles
It was the end of a good wrestling story, and a great wrestling match, to end a good wrestling feud, this match is all the things that Wrestlemania is made of, and the best part about Chris Jericho vs AJ Styles is that the ending was not predictable.
The League of Nations vs The New Day
I am conflicted about this match because The New Day are the Tag Team Champions and they did not defend the belts at Wrestlemania, instead it was a 4 on 3 handicap match and The New Day lost, then Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin hit the ring and everybody was happy and another Wrestlemania moment happened, the only thing that could of made it better was a Tag Team Title Match.
The New Day successfully defended the Tag Team Titles the next night on Raw, the match was just another match, nothing spectacular and it ended with he League of Nations turning on 1 of their own, the end to this feud could of been better, but at least we got to see some familiar faces at Wrestlemania the night before.
I'm still conflicted.
Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose
A lot of people were disappointed with this match, but I feel that it was exactly what people should of expected.
It goes like this: Man vs Beast, Man (Dean) uses weapons, Beast (Brock) is a weapon, Beast destroys Man, the end.
WWE Women's Championship Match: Charlotte vs Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks
Before the match WWE Hall of Famer Lita introduced the new WWE Women's Championship that will replace the WWE Diva's Championship, because all woman are not divas and divas can not wrestle, especially Total Divas.
This was such a great match I had to watch it twice, similar to Jericho vs Styles, this match had all the makings for a Wrestlemania caliber match, great story, great wrestling and the end to a great feud. An added bonus is the beginning to a great feud and as if that were not enough, this awesome display of how talented these 3 woman are, the match had a classic ending when Ric Flair interfered to help his daughter Charlotte retain the Championship, by holding Sasha Banks, and allowing Charlotte to pick up the win by submission.
Hell in a Cell: The Undertaker vs Shane McMahon
This match was without a doubt the highlight of the night, the next night on Raw the WWE made the stipulations regarded the match pointless, but it did not take away from what happened at Wrestlemania.
Shane McMahon threw everything he had at the Undertaker, and the Undertaker beat him up for it.
It all ended when Shane McMahon jumped off the top of a 20 foot cage, as he attempted to land a elbow on the Undertaker as he lay unconscious on the announcer's table, the Undertaker moved out of the way at the last second. Shane crashed through the table and Undertaker dragged him back into the ring and put Shane out of his misery.
The next night on Raw, Vince McMahon handed control of Monday Night Raw to Shane anyway.
20 Man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Everyone loves a Battle Royal, especially Shaquille O'Neal who surprised an alleged audience of over 100,000, by entering the Battle Royal.
Shaq was not the only surprise in the Battle Royal WWE veterans joined the match, but it was the man who was debuting in the match that won it. Baron Corbin, eliminated Kane for the win.
Some wrestling fans like it, some wrestling fans don't.
I just thought it was a fun Battle Royal.
The Rock vs Erick Rowan
The match 6 seconds and was more of the WWE's way of squeezing John Cena in there, who saved the Rock from The Wyatt Family.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Triple H vs Roman Reigns
The Internet Wrestling Community hates this match so much, I thought it was an ok match for a Monday Night Raw, not a Wrestlemania.
Wrestlemania 32 was not completely disappointing, it was defiantly a Wrestlemania, not one of the greatest, I kept my expectations low.
The Monday Night Raw after Wrestlemania featured debuts and returns of wrestlers that they so could of used to make Wrestlemania better, but Wrestlemania is supposed to be like the season finale and what happened on Raw is the start of a new season.
