Well, that was a lot of wrestling. From Saturday night to last night, WWE yielded over fifteen hours of content. Fifteen fucking hours! I'm not going to review all of it, but I do have a couple of notes. Maybe a few.
How does one put into words The Undertaker's funereal retirement? Or his career, for that matter? He has been my favorite "predetermined grappler" for a long time now. The reason he commands so much respect is because he respects the business and never fails to put it first. Even on Sunday night, he adhered to tradition by doing the honors, so to speak. Look, I'm no Roman Reigns apologist, but marks and smarks alike don't seem to understand the causal nexus (no pun intended) of what went down. Any real fan of 'Taker - that's right; I'm pulling the "real" card - would know that this is how he wanted to decamp. The final match had to be a loss.
I can understand wanting the victor to be a different person. But hey, someone had to do it. It might as well be someone who the crowd detests. This sets up Roman for a heel run, and hopefully, he'll become more charismatic along the way. I'll be honest...it was hard to type that with a straight face. Speaking of honesty, I honestly thought that Wrestlemania 33 was a success. My only real complaint? Too many goddamn matches! The TV product is so bloated. Lose a few of those pre-match video packages. You have commentators to tell the stories, not to mention the workers themselves.
Fuck Mojo Rawley. I'm sure he's a nice guy or whatever, but FUCK him. The annoying douche-jock character isn't getting over, dude. You and Gronk are two plebs in a pod.
