Seven days after WrestleMania 33 is (more than) enough time for fans to fully digest the outcomes. The WWE PPV was following the Elimination Chamber, which is usually no easy task. Before we put WrestleMania 33 to rest, here are closing comments.
If you missed it,
WrestleNewz has WrestleMania 33 play by play coverage. Follow WresltNewz’s Joe on Twitter at @JosephLisnow After such a long wait, fans were finally treated to Seth Rollins vs Triple H. As expected, they delivered in one of the better matches. The final spot was great and props to Stephanie McMahon for taking that table bump off the apron. Hopefully Samoa Joe works with Rollins and Triple H returns to restart the program for SummerSlam. John Cena’s proposal to Nikki Bella was sweet. Watching as the two stared into each other’s eyes and one could see they love each other. I do wish WWE didn’t place this moment on WrestleMania. Any other event probably would have worked. WrestleMania is about making wrestling moments, not helping to increase viewership for the next season of Total Divas or get Total Bellas more YouTube subscribers. The two biggest news stories from WrestleMania were The Hardy Boyz returning and Undertaker apparently retiring. Even though the entrance music was too loud, The Hardy Boyz probably got the biggest pop of the night; despite fans having a sense they were present. Undertaker closing WrestleMania, the show almost built around him, was sad and at the same time bittersweet since he now can enjoy his family. Heading into this year’s WrestleMania, I was ready to cast my vote as one of the worst events WWE produced. Somehow, the show was better than it seemed on paper. While it ran a little long, most of the superstars really gave their ‘A’ game. There were a few flaw, but WrestleMania 33 was better than at least half of the previous installments. There was never a need for Shane McMahon to return to WWE, but he did so about 13 months ago. Since then, he’s showed no signs of slowing down despite the gray hair. Shane flies through the air with grace, whether he’s crashing into an announce table or going coast-to-coast. The shooting star press was just a little extra crazy.
