WWE Wrestlemania 32 is on the books and it drew over a hundred thousand fans in attendance. It was full of memorable moments and exciting matches but it ended on a sour note when Roman Reigns recaptured the world heavyweight title from Triple H after he accidentally speared Stephanie too.
The night opened with the 6 man ladder match for the Intercontinental Ladder match between Sin Cara, Zack Ryder, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. I was expecting Kevin Owens to retain but in what has to be one of the biggest Wrestlemania surprises of all time, Zack Ryder shocked everyone by coming away with the victory. As expected, it was a ladder match full of bright spots including Sami Zayn diving thru a ladder onto the other competitors on the outside.
The best match has got to be the Triple Threat match for the Women’s Title between Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Charlotte. Many expected Sasha Banks to get the win here as I thought WWE made a mistake by having Charlotte retain with her dad Ric Flair giving the assist by preventing Becky Lynch tap out to the Figure Eight.
The Rock had his segment with the Wyatt Family including a 6 second match with Eric Rowan who miraculously recovered from the Rock Bottom pretty quickly in order to gang up on the Rock. John Cena comes in to save the day even though he is still injured but The Rock did what he does best and that was to electrify the people.
The best moment came when Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley came out to confront the League of Nations after they defeated the New Day in a non-title 6 man tag match. I agree that the only reason League of Nations got the win was because they were going to be confronted by the legends. The trio ended up taking out Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett and Alberto del Rio after giving them their finishers.
The match between AJ Styles and Chris Jericho is nothing special since we have seen both gentlemen square off with each other a couple of times in the past. Considering it is Wrestlemania, you would think they would give us something fresh and not something we have already seen for free on TV.
The most unforgettable move of the night has got to belong to Shane McMahon’s elbow drop to the Undertaker as he leaped from the top of the cell. The only problem was he missed and it ended up costing him the match as if he had a chance to win it. There was no way of the most respected icons in the industry would lose in that match.
The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal was short and accomplished a lot of things. It set up a match between Shaq and Big Show next year plus it gives a boost to one of their top young stars in Baron Corbin who was a surprise entrant.
