Really? I don't know anyone bothered about it. What makes you so looking forward to it?

I have been informed "some of the matches are good" and it is "worth a watch".

First year I'll not be watching. The last few years I've at least made the effort to watch Mania but without the spectacle, the arena or the big show feel, it has nothing for me. All pre-recorded too, right?

Feel bad for Drew McIntyre. That long journey from OVW in 2007 to getting fired, working his way back through to the indies and then his big moment is gonna be in front of an empty stadium in a Wrestlemania the WWE will pretend never happened afterwards.

Surely they’ll have a few tricks of their sleeves to make it a bit special?
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

Does this start at 12? I'm not sure what I'm watching, but it's s***. Corbin and the harmonica :lol: must be the worst thing I've ever seen.
I am currently happy. Its weekend. Time to unwind after a stressful work days.

Thought the Boneyard Match was awesome.
Was skeptical they put that last but I loved it. This is how to use the Undertaker in 2020, not that they should have to.Highly entertaining for me anyway.

- Really wished Goldberg and Braun at least did a couple minutes longer even if it was brawling around the ring. Happy for Braun. Bit flat though.
- Not happy about the Shayna loss. Where does that leave her after a great build? Only explanation is Ronda Rousey coming back. Feel she is doing penance for the survivor series match. On the upside it was an unpredictable finish. Thought it was a nailed on with for Baslzer.
- Loved KO vs Rollins, Ladder Match and Gulak vs Cesaro (the later was about as good as you could do in limited time, lots of fun)
- Gonk was less obnoxious than I thought but still the less of him and mojo the better for everyone.
- Surprised there were more legends/celebrities video called/interviewed in throughout the night. Probably for the best. kept the matches going.

Night 2 is arguable more stacked and I am interested to see if they can better tonights solid part 1. Good effort under

On a side note if two night mania is the new norm I am in favour. Also opens up the possibility of true storyline cliff hangers on night 1 that could spill into night 2.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.

Still the best Wresltemania promo package


Feel like I'm going to go down memory lane and watch the lead-up to that match from maybe Royal Rumble 2001 and all the Raw and Smackdown leading up to Mania X-7 once we're done with night 2 tonight. Nothing to watch anyways so might as well watch this.

Spot on!

It was funny hearing them talk to each other what with no crowd there!

Taker vs AJ was quality!

Thought that was pretty good to be fair. Few matches I wasn’t arsed about but majority were really good. Becky end was poor.

They done a mint job with AJ v Taker, was class. Want AJ to go back baby now

Better than I expected. Boneyard match was shockingly good. Real entertaining. Enjoyed ladder match, Owens/Rollins and Becky and Daniel Bryan matches were decent. Never the same with no crowd but certainly a watchable show.

Think you need to do matches like the boneyard and firefly fun house matches when Wrestlemania has no audience.

Absolutely, as a side note I'm actually looking forward to Cena vs Wyatt now.  :lol:

The other thing to come out of the Boneyard match is it was nice Taker having a good match again.

I was a massive fan as a kid but i haven't really enjoyed his matches since the streak ended. Him going out with losing to Reigns and having a squash with Cena as a lasting memory wouldn't have felt right.

The Charlotte/Rhea match was very good, the verbals and grunting worked well with no crowd. Clearly the wrong finish tho.
