WWE truly gave us something to get our minds of what’s going on in this crazy world. I enjoyed both nights and thought WWE really was creative and unique with their shows this weekend. I went into night 1 on Sunday so would like to dive into night 2 today.
One of the better pre show matches we have got in recent memory was Liv defeating Natalya. I would like to see Natalya turn heel and for Liv to really get someone to work with. This girl has so much passion for the wrestling business and works so hard, I can see her being a huge star. When they reboot her being blonde I really didn’t get that because to me her personality matches the girl with pink hair, the edgy girl now the girl next door.
For me personally opening matches that are long and a story I am not invested into is hard for me. I think Charlotte is one of the most natural gifted athletes, her and Bianca are the next Kurt and Brock. They are so gifted, but with that said I was not invested into the storyline of Rhea and Charlotte. I never saw Rhea on Charlotte’s level. Charlotte may be the greatest of all time and she should be treated as such. Sure this may up NXT’s ratings or give us some dream matches, but Charlotte belongs on Raw or Smackdown and belongs at the top. She is above most and I honestly didn’t see a problem with her handling Rhea.
There was two matches personally for me that I didn’t see in night 1. Night 1 for me didn’t have any filler but Otis and Ziggler I expected more out of and Lashley vs. Black had no story and no reasoning for me to care. The Otis story was good, but I felt Mandy went to rescue Otis too soon and this didn’t need to be on Wrestlemania. Also raw tag team championships was kinda a short match with no story, but we did get Bianca debuting. I am so hyped for this. I am a huge Bianca fan and really feel this can be the 2.0 team extreme.
Twitter gave Edge and Orton so much heat for their match at Wrestlemania. People said it was too long and the most boring match in history, I disagree. They were trying to be creative, sure they could of made it shorter, but this was their creative idea, their decision and I appreciated it. I liked how they traveled to different rooms and how much they expressed the beating. At times I seriously thought one of them died. I hope this story continues.
The Smackdown women’s championship was my favorite in ring wrestling match of night 2. I was invested into this story, I thought they told the story perfectly with Sasha/Bayley. Just little touches here and there but no full turn at all. I really do like it and I would love it if it was Bayley turning on Sasha instead, it would be such a swerve and they could really show some of that footage when Sasha was gone, how she fell out of love of wrestling. They could make it personal and real, it could be really good.
The best comedy angle in forevers was the firefly funhouse match, I laughed so damn hard. Cena and Bray put all the creative juices into this along with creative I am sure, it was what everyone needed at a time like this. Probably my favorite part of night 2.
I’m sure everyone has their opinions, but I actually didn’t want Drew to win. I wanted Brock to beat Drew and for the story to continue. We have seen the same story so many times now, someone defeats Brock at Wrestlemania and uses all their finishing moves over and over again until they pin Brock. I felt this story could of continued and that Drew winning it in front of the crowd would of meant way more.
