Half the matches at WM could’ve been on Raw or SD. Especially AJ/Orton. It’s what separates NXT most from the main roster. PPVs are events and the matches are big deals.

Not only because they’re less frequent and in bigger arenas, but because the matches themselves seem to be planned by people that care.

I'm not pessimistic about WWE though. I don't watch it except for the major PPVs, and roughly following the ups and downs throughout the year online. I think it'll be good for Vince to resign one day. I'm not sure how they can really fix the problems that they do have, aside from making sort of like a pseudo-territory type thing again
The solution is probably for Vince/WWE to stop buying up every wrestler under the sun trying to keep them from the boogeyman competitors. A legitimate competitor would be so good for both WWE and every single wrestler they employ for all the reasons you mentioned. Vince lets so many amazingly talented performers languish in the lower card to the point that many of them get beyond rehabbing to the main event. Competitors could make them huge stars and then those stars moving between companies would make bigger draws for all. Vince just isn't satisfied unless he owns everything. He wants to do dumb shit like the brand split so he owns both "competitors" and then him and his creative staff have no clue how to even pull that off semi convincingly.

Just finished watching Wrestlemania. It was overall the best WM in a maybe 5 years.

Personal high points:
Kofi vs Bryan was fantastic.
4 way Tag Team Match was great.
Brock loosing the belt

Low points:
Sarah Logan eliminating Asuka
AJ vs Orton was really boring
Main event was marred by bad timing and a botched finish.

Disgusting points:
Fuck Hogan

Also abit surprised by the love Adam Cole vs Gargano is getting. It was obviously great wrestling but the storytelling felt weird. Him kicking out of a million finishers seemed cartoonish and felt like that was meant for Ciampa and they simply didn’t have time to change the match to fit vs Cole instead.

Come on, irwin r shyster, the Aussie backwoods guy, and on occasion, Randy Norton wore shirts while wrestling. I kind of dig it.

They need to move Wrestlemania to Saturdays if they want to continue with 30 matches because most people don’t work Sundays at 6:00 am.

I'm all for subjective opinions, but if that Takeover was a B-, I'd love to know what an A+ is.

Does anyone know the minute mark when the Match between Bryan and Kofi starts?

Honestly that’s the only matched I liked this Wrestlemania.

Is it bad that now that I reflect on it, I like mania's matches more than G1 Supercard? The booking in the latter was just bad for everything ROH was doing, even if we had duds like the women's tag match, the Samoa Joe squash, and the fact the show didn't end until 1 AM.

WWE actually gave fans more of what they wanted and had better buildups to it than NJPW. I shook.
