Wrestlemania is less than 30 days away

WrestleMania

Wrestlemania has been captivating audiences around the world for the last 30 years. It’s like the Super Bowl of wrestling. The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has always made me believe that Wrestlemania was the holy grail of all pay-per-views. With that said, I’m happy to announce that I will be attending my first ever Wrestlemania. I am super excited, and I feel that I reserved the right to let all you WWE fanatics know what’s been going on lately.

Here’s a quick recap.

The Royal Rumble

Daniel Bryan came back from an injury just right before Royal Rumble. The fans went crazy as Bryan won his first match. We all thought that Bryan carried the momentum right towards Royal Rumble, but boy we were wrong. As the Royal Rumble started at the end of January, Bryan came out as number 14. The Hostile crowd in Philadelphia were rockin’ that night. As the usual ’90s wrestlers came out and surprised the crowd, Bryan threw every single one of them out. However, that momentum quickly changed when Bryan was eliminated within 15 minutes of the Royal Rumble match. The crowd was stunned. They were actually booing throughout the match, and when Reigns came out he capitalized on the opportunity and won the Royal Rumble match. The crowd was even more hostile after Reigns won. Even The Rock couldn’t save him in the controversial ending. I was not happy with the ending as well; I couldn’t digest it. I really wanted Daniel Bryan to win the match; he deserved it.

Fastlane

Fast-forward to the new Fastlane pay-per-view, no pun intended. It was Roman Reigns versus Daniel Bryan for the right to fight Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31 for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. I was extremely hyped for this match and it did not disappoint. Right off the bat, the crowd was even more hostile as the Philadelphia crowd at Royal Rumble. Reigns and Bryan exchanged finishers right until the end of the match. At this point, the crowded couldn’t decide who to cheer for. There were yes chants, and there were Roman Reigns chants. As the match came to a conclusion, I was on the edge of my seat. With one last spear, Reigns won the match in dramatic fashion. The crowd broke out with cheers. Some were angry, most were cheerful, but all seemed very electric. We finally had a true main event at Wrestlemania 31.

Despite how I feel about Bryan not being in the main event at Wrestlemania, I am pumped to see both Lesnar and Reigns. Reigns doesn’t have great mic skills but I have to give it to him, since he also deserves it. He worked just as hard as Bryan if not harder, and some may argue for the past 3 years. It will be an epic match of even greater proportion. Two powerhouses will go toe to toe and I’m excited because this will be my first ever Wrestlemania. Located at the grandest stage, Wrestlemania 31 will be held at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco, California, on March 29th. I was a little too young to attend Wrestlemania when it was in Los Angeles a decade ago, but now my chance has finally come true. Not only will it be a great main event, but it will be a night to remember. To all you wrestling fanatics out there, if you don’t have WWE Network please subscribe. It is definitely a good time to come back especially if you been out of the game for a long while. See you all there!
