With so much to digest, analyze, and comment on coming out of WrestleMania 28 last night, a full recap will be forthcoming soon. For the time being, though, I just wanted to see if you noticed the same things I noticed on the pay-per-view broadcast. Aside from three epic main-event matches, here’s what jumped out at me:
Maria Menounos, Flo Rida, P-Diddy, Machine Gun Kelly, Brodus and Mama Clay (with The Bridge Club) were all given way more airtime than Daniel Bryan and Sheamus were given for a World title match.
Just when it looked like Justin Gabriel could make something of himself as a singles wrestler, he’s saddled with Heath Slater again
Kane twice thwarted Randy Orton’s RKO attempts.
The WWE broadcast team made at least five “vintage” wrestler references.
Brie Bella called the Divas “classy.” Apparently, Natalya wasn’t within smelling distance when Brie said that.
The much leaner Mike Tyson is hopelessly infatuated with the DeGeneration-X crotch chop.
The censors cut out the words “Suck it” when Triple-H crotch chopped Undertaker. For $60, everything should get through.
John Cena’s body language in the first few minutes of his match with The Rock subtly but demonstratively teased a heel turn, which after long last, might actually occur on Raw tonight.
For a show that’s traditionally been all about wrapping up storylines, there was a curious lack of resolution this year—e.g. what becomes of The Rock, Cena, and Chris Jericho now?
What do you think?
