The epidemic of the COVID-19 has canceled school, work, and almost all sporting events. As a matter of fact it is very rare for a sporting event to be on right now. That is why I was shocked to see an ad for Wrestlemania and it was free. Since there were no other sports, I decided to watch. I haven’t watched wrestling in years and I didn’t know what to expect, but I can honestly say I was surprisingly entertained.
Even though there was no audience in the crowd for Wrestlemania, the Pay-Per-View was still, in my opinion, one of the greatest Wrestlemanias I ever saw. It not only has sgreat matches but great storylines, too. I began to appreciate the effort that they put into this event.
I couldn’t recognize most of the WWE superstars, but I could say that I was glued in with every match. That’s a lot to say since several matches span over two days, which is the first time WWE did something like this.
I had two favorite matches that caught my eye; both were on different days. The first match was The Undertaker vs AJ Styles in a boneyard match. I never heard of a boneyard match, and according to the commentators, this was the first time it ever happened, but they should do more of these. The match had more of a cinematic feel to it, like it was a scene from an action movie. The other match was John Cena vs Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House Match. This match was one of my favorites because it was so bizarre. The only appropriate way I could describe it is if John Cena took acid.
I recommend watching this again. It is free right now to watch on the WWE app. I promise it will be worth your while.
