Wrestlemania 32 one for the ages!

Wrestlemainia 32 was in my opinion the best show in a long, long time. Not since Wrestlemainia 3 many years ago have we seen such high drama, excitement and surprising outcomes! I also understand that Wrestlemania 32 set a record for attendance at 101,763 —  wow! Moreover it was the highest grossing Wrestlemainia, earning more than $17 million. The fans came out in droves and, if results are measured in dollars and cents, this show was a WINNER!!!! Up until now, WWE had not had the best programing, but Wrestlemania 32 gives me hope that things are finally getting back on track. Thank goodness. For the record, here are some of my favorite moments from last night`s action. 

After a so-so match between The New Day and The League of Nations, the League of Nations issued a challenge, stating that no 3 men could defeat them and The New Day. Guess what???? The challenge was met by some of my favorite veterans — Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley as Cactus Jack and Stone Cold Steve Austin. What a troika of talent!! These veterans of yesteryear showed the League of Nations that they still had it in them by hitting all their signature moves, including my favorite — the old Stone Cold Stunner! 

One of the funnier moments in the evening came when the famous wrestling manager, Paul Heyman, entered the ring and was shocked by the enormity of the audience. He could only mutter out loud “oh my god!” before once again launching into one of his routine “Brock Lesnar is the best” monologues. Quite a moment which helped to capture this special evening. 

To my considerable surprise, the best match was not the headliner for the WWE championship [Triple H vs Roman Raines], but rather it was the women`s championship match. These ladies of the ring really showed the world that they can wrestle with the best on the grandest stage of them all. What a performance. 

By far the most shocking moment came when Shane McMahon leapt off the “hell in the cell cage” some 20 feet right on top of the announcers` table! What an incredible, and dangerous, move! This was by far the single craziest moment that I have ever seen in WWE history! And that my friend, is saying something. 

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my favorite moments of Wrestlemania 32. Dear readers, let`s hope that Producer Kevin Dunn and the rest of the WWE script writing team keep up the good work and the great shows keep coming! Party on fellow wrestling fans!!

  1. Loved your assessment of Wrestlemania. My interest in pro wrestling has waned over the years, much in part due to the lack of quality storylines since roughly the Attitude Era. If they can run with this then they will be alright.

    What were your thoughts on the Reigns-HHH ending? I thought it felt really rushes.
