Can't really postpone it, though. You need to have the matches. Unless you're just not going to have new programming, which I'm sure USA and Fox would not have liked.

 

It shouldn't be called 'WrestleMania' though, just call it some special name, and hold WM later in the year.

Yeah I agree, I wouldn't be against a Summer Wrestlemania, open air would be epic

I haven't watched WWE in quite a long time (since I found out about the US military troops drugging and raping Ashley and Vince did nothing about it), but being quarentined and bored I decided to watch the ppv on my free iptv app and holy crap what a cringe fest. Why wasn't this just cancelled and rescheduled. I get its about money loss but if I didn't stop watching wwe before, this train wreck trash would have stopped me for sure. The no crowd thing was kinda tolerable, i guess if i watched recently i would have gotten used to it but the matches themselves looked like they were setup by a high school drama student. If i actually paid for this i would be so upset.

Having watched both nights - there were some "Well a match happened and that's that" parts, but I actually (against my preconceived ideas) really enjoyed it.

 

It was silly, it was different, there was some good in-ring action and good in-ring story telling, the correct belts changed hands.  Was it the best Mania ever? Lord no.  But did they take a risk and it seems to have paid off?  Totally!

WWE is really becoming a boring circus. Did you guys see The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 36? Dressed up like The American Bad Ass? Seriously? 

 

I thought they had forgotten about that stupid gimmick years ago? That is not The Undertaker. That stupid Biker gimmick just doesn’t do it. There is no mystery to it. No eerie sense. He really needs to hang up the boots already if he is going to continue with that. Just my two cents.

How did we all enjoy the biggest pop in wrestling history? :)

AEW are killing it at the moment, it helps they have a massive chequebook and an owner who likes the fun side of the product

Holy crap, the thread's still going! Well, a lot has certainly changed in the past 18 months or so, that's for sure.

 

Have to admit during the first few months of the pandemic I eventually gave up on Raw and SmackDown, and now I've stopped watching NXT on a regular basis as well, just the odd clip here and there - usually involving InDex or Cameron Grimes lately.

 

I'm pretty much full-time on AEW now, watching all their shows - including the Dark/Elevation ones on YouTube - and even some of the vlog series with Being the Elite and Sammy Guevara's vlog.

 

I was watching Impact every week up until very recently when they stopped putting it up for free on Impact Plus in the UK (you've gotta subscribe now), so I'm dipping in and out on them at the moment, but they've had a hell of a turnaround the past couple of years, it really feels like they'll never die.

 

Speaking of seemingly immortal promotions: the NWA! I was enjoying Powerrr until they put it behind a paid subscription on Fite, and now they just seem to be making questionable decisions - Nick Aldis' 1,000+ day reign as world champion - as well as questionable hirings, like 48 year old Tyrus. Good for Trevor Murdoch though, being the one to dethrone Aldis; he's definitely got the classic NWA look, let's just hope he doesn't end up dropping the title straight back to Aldis like with Cody Rhodes.

 

Anyway, have a brand new Botchamania that just went up a few hours ago...

I can't be full time AEW because I see so many similarities to WCW, I think there's to much going on there and their roster is to deep. Everytime someone leaves WWE its "off to AEW" and everyone gets lost, I mean look at Miro went to the greener side and now lost on the roster.

 

Also Cody annoys me

Miro's been working hurt for quite a while in AEW. He's finally taken time off to heal a hamstring injury.
