Wrestlemania 33 Review








The kickoff show kicks off with the Wrestlemania Panel which includes Renee Young, Booker T, Jerry Lawler, &  Shawn Micheals. Renee like always makes all three legends look great with great intros.  Only took 45 seconds for Lawler with his corny jokes.  Later on in the kickoff show Paul Heyman will be in the media lounge to answer questions.  Payback will be the next pay per view to take place and they go on to talk about the WWE Title match including Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton.  In my eyes this is the best feud going into tonight months of build up done all right. Everyone makes a prediction which Micheals & Booker T Choose Randy Orton and Lawler says Bray Wyatt. Then we go right into the AJ Styles Vs Shane Mcmahon Match. And then they go on to talk about Seth Rollins Vs Triple H leading to a video package. The match is the biggest question but it could be the match that steals the show but the question is will Samoa Joe & Finn Balor show up?   Everyone Picks Triple H to win only due to the injury of Seth Rollins.  Now they go on to talk about both womens title matches which both will be on the main card. Lita replaces Lawler on the panel at least for the time being.  They go on to talk about how the womens division on the main roster has improved in a year.  Now the best hyped match is the mixed tag team match but i feel everyone knows this match won’t be that great.  But it is now time for some action.


  • Cruiserweight Title Match

Neville Vs Austin Aries

Neville Wins Via Red Arrow & Retains Crusierweight Title

Rate: 3.5 Stars


A Great way to kick off wrestlemania. This was the first Cruiserweight tile match since 2004 and this may have been the best Cruiserweight match since its rebirth. I think it may have succeeded in getting more fans for that division. Saw some great German suplexs that would make Chris Benoit smile. But what made the ending better than most Cruiserweight matches was it made sense. Neville attacking Aries injured eye and the prettiest Red arrow we have ever seen. Neville got good heat and plants the seeds for a rematch possibly for Payback.

Winner: MoJo Rawley

Rate: 3 Stars


Well this wasn’t predictable We saw Strowman and Big show dominated the first three minutes only to get eliminated early on in the match. We even Saw Gronk from the New England Patriots take down Mahal after Mahal slapped him. Killian Dain of Sanity had the most impressive showing in my eyes and i can see a bright future in WWE for him. I am fine with Rawley winning because it helps build a star and i see a feud with a heel Ryder in the future.

We go back to the panel as they start talking about Brock Lesnar Vs Goldberg and we find out we have one more match on the kickoff show.


  1. IC Title Match

Dean Ambrose Vs Baron Corbin

Dean Ambrose Wins Via Dirty Deeds & Retains IC Title

Rate: 2 Stars




This match was awfully dull and needed a stipulation to be better but Corbin impressed me with his great heel work and intensity. I was just bored during the whole match except the last 3 minutes.


We Go back to the panel as they hype up all the Wrestlemania matches. As we transition into the Wrestlemania intro.


Wrestlemania kicks off with national anthem and already there is some audio issues or she is just awful.  Which leads into the opening intro. And was very well executed.  And the fireworks go off as The New F=Day come in Red and white and that entrance ramp was insane but The New day paying some tribute to Final Fantasy.  Woods has a mic and you can see the excitement and he says they are honored to be chosen over everyone else and fans start a who chant and New day says they are the best choice to host Wrestlemania.  


  1. Singles Match

Shane Mcmahon Vs AJ Styles

AJ Styles Wins Via Phenomenal Forearm

Rate: 3.5 Stars




The opener to the main card which i was upset at first that Styles was in the opening match but after this contest i agree with it. This match was a lot better than anticipated. We saw some big spots Shane Reversing the springboard 450 splash into a triangle choke, Coast to coast into a trashcan into Styles, Shane missing the flying elbow drop and goes crashing through the table, and We saw shane attempt a shooting star press. This match was beautiful and well done and both men should be proud of themself.


  1. United States Title Match

Chris Jericho Vs Kevin Owens

Kevin Owens Wins Via Powerbomb On The Apron & Wins United States Title

Rate: 3.5 Stars


This match was so different from the opener. So much more physcolgy and great heel work from owens. Biggest mark out moment for this match was Jericho Reversing the pop up powerbomb into a codebreaker. Owens would also lock in the walls of Jericho and this match told the beautiful story of best friends knowing each other and  it took a powerbomb on the apron to beat the legend and i really hope Owens does good things for that title.


  1. Fatal Four Way Elimination Match For Raw Womens Title

Bayley Vs  Nia Jax Vs Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte Flair

Elimination Order:


  • Nia Jax Eliminated By All 3 women after a triple powerbomb off the middle rope
  • Sasha Banks Eliminated By Charlotte Flair after hitting the exposed turnbuckle
  • Charlotte Flair Eliminated By Bayley Via Top Rope Elbow Drop

Bayley Wins & Retains Raw Womens Title

Rate: 3 Stars



This match was odd booking wise. First off Nia Jax looked good for about 20 seconds and then was eliminated so what was the point of her being in the match. But we did get to see Charlotte do a corkscrew moonsault and i popped big for this moment but next we saw Sasha get eliminated without any friction with Bayley and then Bayley winning with the elbow drop to pay homage to Randy Savage.  Match was underwhelming and was expecting them to have more time.


Next we see a video package of the hall of fame ceremony from friday night and next we see all of them come to the stage for their moment and if you didn’t watch here is the list of 2017 WWE Hall Of Famers   Kurt Angle, Diamond Dallas Page, Rock n Roll Express, Beth Phoenix, Rick Rude ( Represented by his wife and kids)  Teddy Long, Eric Legrand ( Warriors Award)


  1. Fatal Four Way Ladder Match For Raw Tag Team Titles

Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows Vs Enzo Amore & Big Cass Vs Cesaro & Sheamus Vs Hardy Boyz

Hardy Boyz win Raw Tag Team titles

Rate: 3.5  stars



Lets just say it The New Day trolled the whole building and when the Hardy Boyz music hit the crowd went insane and so did i and they broke twitter pardon the pun. But this match was great and seeing them win the tag titles only means they will be booked legit and i love that. All men did great in the match and everyone got their moments and The Jeff hardy swanton bomb off the ladder on Cesaro & sheamus through a ladder was breathtaking. I need to compose myself.


  1. Mixed Tag Team Match


The Miz & Maryse Vs John cena & Nikki Bella


John Cena & Nikki Bella Win after a double pin


Rate: 2 Stars


Post Match: John Cena has a mic and says this is what Nikki wanted a year ago when she broke her neck and now she has a wrestlemainia moment and he says he wants a honest answer for this question because the time is right right here in front of all of them. He remembers after her surgery he whispered to her one day i will marry ypu and now we are here and he is proposing to Nikki Bella  and she says yes…



Well the match was a piss break match to calm the fans down and it felt like a burial to the Miz. Nothing more and nothing less but after the proposal felt real and  it would make any adult emotional and it was a great moment for them to share with us so i won’t be too hard on them for this.


  1.  Non-Sanctioned Match

Triple H  With Stephanie Mcmahon Vs Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins Wins Via Pedigree

Rate: 4 Stars


This match was purely amazing and it started with both men having great entrances. Most of the match Triple H dissected the injured knee and tried everything to put Rollins down, Tried chairs, Tried a pedigree, even tried with a sledgehammer but the end sequence was beautiful. Both men fighting to hit the pedigree then Rollins super kicking Triple H Into Stephanie and she went crashing through the table. An amazing match  that got the crowd back into it.


  1. WWE Title Match

Bray Wyatt Vs Randy Orton

Randy Orton Wins Via RKO & Wins WWE Title

Rate: 3.5 Stars



This match was the most different thing i have ever seen in pro wrestling. In the beginning Orton dominated until Wyatt started turning the ring into maggots and played major mind games with orton. A few minutes later both men hit their finishers on the outside.  It seems Wyatt has became more supernatural with the Ashes of Abigail and i loved that storytelling in this match.  The bug ring effects and finisher trading went through the whole match but the ending was so quick and confused me


  1.  Universal Title Match

Goldberg Vs Brock Lesnar With Paul Heyman

Brock Lesnar Wins Via F-5 & Wins Universal Title

Rate: 3 Stars


This match was actually good and the crowd was into it. Goldberg went to suplex city and Goldberg hit like 10 spears even one through a barricade. Lesnar Kicking out of the jackhammer was a holy shit moment but the crowd really loved this war it was just hitting for 10 minutes. I have no issue with this match was a lot better than anyone could guess.


  1.  6 Pack Challenge For Smackdown Womens Title

Alexa Bliss Vs Becky Lynch Vs Mickie James Vs Carmella With James Ellsworth Vs Natayla Vs Naomi

Naomi Wins Via Modified Anaconda Vice & Wins Smackdown Womens Title

Rate: 2.5 Stars



This match was average at best. They didn’t have much time and every moment seemed rushed but the right person  won and by beating Bliss it wasn’t a fluke win. I just hope she gets a proper title run.


  1. No Holds Barred Match

Roman Reigns Vs Undertaker

Roman Reigns Wins Via Spear

Rate : 4 Stars




A great match to end the great show. It really told a great story of the young lion and Taker kept kickout out but Youth won this war and in the end it looked like Reigns didn’t want to finish off taker but one last violent spear did it. After the match the fans gave Undertaker a ovation which could be his last match and this match was even more special with Jim Ross on commentary.  Taker is somehow up and looks at the crowd as his music hits and you can just see the emotion in his face . He leaves his Gloves, Jacket, & Hat in the ring to symbol his retirement.

Triple H says listen to him not the idiotic fans and Triple H says the match is off and exits the ring and Rollins sits down which makes Triple H smile and enter back into the ring. Triple H says he wants Rollins to understand by signing this contract when he gets hurt again this Sunday he cant sue WWE. Rollins cant sue him or will he stop him from destroying his best creation. Rollins says he gets it and tells Triple H to sign it and hand it over and Triple H says he once made a smart decision but then he let the fans got to him and end his success. He says the fans have been jealous of his family for over 20 years. Triple H says he choose this life and he has never cared about anybody but him and his family and that is by not listening to these fans. He says how will his family forgive Rollins when he throws away his future and Rollins needs to see that he has no chance with one leg against him. Triple H Promises if he signs he will not walk out of wrestlemania let alone wrestle again. Rollins starts to think and he says that is the same bull crap he bought in 3 years ago but he isnt the same person he was 3 years ago. Rollins said he liked himself before he met Triple H, He never minded working the indie circuit because he loves this industry. This isn’t about fame or fortune or even wrestlemania. It is all about redemption because he gave up his best friends to stand next to Triple H and for what just so could Triple H could toss him to the side and Rollins says Triple H better tear his leg apart because  he will go to any length to get back where he was before he met Triple H and than he signs the contract. Triple H Turns around and Kicks the table into Rollins injured knee and then clears out the ring but wait Rollins out of knee with a wicked Kick and attempts a pedigree but Triple H chop blocks his leg and Triple H goes for the Pedigree but Rollins takes him over the top rope and starts hitting him with the crutch.

He doesnt care what anyone thinks anymore because this is his time and this is his house and he is standing in his yard. and the dong hits and Undertaker appears on the tron by a gravesite and Taker says Reigns is standing in his yard and the grave site will be his yard.  Reigns will be the biggest soul in his collection and at Wrestlemania the Roman Empire will fall 6 feet under.

He lusts for the title and will do anything to gain that title. He admits Goldberg is a real life super hero and he respects him  and he proved that he is the man but his client is the beast and he will devour Goldberg quickly at Wrestlemania.  There is only one flaw to this brutal ending to this big time feud and this Sunday Goldberg will enter suplex city.  Wrestlemania 33 should be titled ” The Death Of A Superhero” Lesnar does not fear the spear and Goldberg wont be able to survive the F-5 and now out comes Goldberg.  Goldberg stands at the stage and has a mic and says No one came here to listen to them talk they would rather see a fight so why not have Wrestlemania a little early and They head for each Other and Goldberg hits a wicked spear then steps in the ring.
