With 13 matches booked, WrestleMania 33 seemed liked it would succeed or be a total flop. Personally, the show did deliver with matches that were thrilling. Still, some moments were better than others; so let’s take a look at what worked and what didn’t.

WrestleNewz has WrestleMania 33 play by play coverage. Follow WresltNewz’s Joe on Twitter at @JosephLisnow The six pack challenge never stood a chance. In previous matches, we saw Triple H – Seth Rollins finally meet, two world titles change hands and a marriage proposal. There wasn’t enough time for the SmackDown ladies to showcase their skills, so this should have been aded to the pre-show. Given another 5 minutes and placed earlier on the card might have saved what was probably the worst match of the evening. The opening match of WrestleMania saw Neville just get the better of Austin Aries. Personally, it was one of the better matches on the card and it would have been better if it was saved for the pay per view. Neville and Aries have really raised the bar in the cruiserweight division. Mojo Rawley is a freak of an athlete and someone who could help WWE. I just don’t see Mojo being a champion and the winning the Andre The Battle Royal could be used as a starting point for a push. Sami Zayn or Luke Harper seemed like better choices and neither even made the final two. Based off their previous encounters, nobody seemed to have high hopes for Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg. Sure, they could make a 90 second match work, but this was no squash. Still in five minutes we got 10 suplexes, few spears, jackhammer and the F5. Pretty impressive to cram all that without any ‘boring’ or ‘this match sucks chants. Fans weren’t happy that Roman Reigns retired Undertaker, but somebody had to do it. I can’t imagine Reigns volunteered for the job. The post-match tribute saved the conclusion of WrestleMania. Nothing was rushed and Undertaker managed to basically stay in character as he disappeared into the darkness.
