I'm just a sick guy, I'm really just a dirty guy.


THE PRESHOW IS TWO HOURS LONG AND STARTS AT 5 PM EDT. HOUR ONE IS ON YOUTUBE, THE NETWORK, AND OTHER VIDEO SITES, HOUR TWO IS ONLY ON THE NETWORK AND NO, YOU’RE NOT REQUIRED TO WATCH ALL OF IT

SHOULD YOU WATCH THIS EVENT?



YES! YES! YES! What looked like a disaster of a WrestleMania card a month ago has turned into a remarkable card that has pulled together quite nicely. The top matches on the card have very good potential with the final ascension of the best wrestler, the people’s champion, being on top of the world. The Undertaker is having a WrestleMania match. And John Cena is in a really good feud! And above all, it’s WrestleMania. Of course you need to watch it, as long as the WWE Network doesn’t die a horrible and painful death (which it probably will)!



Welcome friends, to the Grandaddy of them All, the Showcase of the Immortals… WrestleMania! The thirtieth iteration of the biggest wrestling show of the year comes to you from New Orleans, Louisiana this year, and with it they bring the debut of the WWE Network, and WrestleMania comes free with it! As long as the streaming service holds up, we’ll all get to watch WrestleMania in glorious HD after years of pirating the live streams being forced to buy PPVs in standard definition. The show currently has eight official matches, with the tag team match on the (two-hour long ) preshow. These are the matches currently scheduled for the card:



THIS MATCH WILL BE ON THE WWE NETWORK PORTION OF THE PRESHOW, WHICH STARTS AT 6 PM EDT

Since winning the Tag Team Championships last month on Raw, the Usos have found several challengers to the belt already. First, the Real Americans have laid claim, already pinning the champions and beating them in singles matches. After a short tease of a breakup so the better man could get out and swing people in perpetuity, they are both on the same page coming into this match. Rybaxel was added to the match after attacking the Shield on the behest of the Authority. And the Matadores? Nobody’s really sure how they made it into the match. Unfortunately, this match does not follow in the grand tradition of WrestleMania ladder matches, and instead will be a fatal four-way tag team match to crown a single champion. Who will walk out of the first hour of the show as WWE Tag Team Champions?



There are fourteen WWE Divas in this match. Can you name them all without looking? Good luck!



The Hulkster had a dream, brother! And that dream was that one day we can all remember the eighth wonder of the world, Andre the Giant in the first annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, commemorating the fact that he was killed by Hulk Hogan only days after he got bodyslammed at WrestleMania 3. We’ll all remember Andre the Giant by having a 30-man battle royal to win the life-size Andre the Giant trophy with everyone who isn’t already in another match for their “big” WrestleMania paycheck. Brad Maddox is the odds-on favorite to win this battle royal, with unlimited potential and a low center of gravity, making him impossible to be thrown out of the ring. Andre the Giant’s son will also be in this match, fighting for the honor of his father. JTG, unfortunately, has not been announced, but we all have hope!



The Shield has been the best team in the WWE since debuting at Survivor Series 2011. They’ve beaten everybody from John Cena to the Undertaker to Daniel Bryan. Since having a bit of dissension at the beginning of 2014 with Roman Reigns becoming the clear strong link of the team, eliminating the most people in Royal Rumble history, pinning four people from a Survivor Series match, and being the only member of the Shield to beat CM Punk, Dean Ambrose was starting to get jealous. However, they’ve smoothed out their differences, uniting to fight the Wyatt Family and eventually turn on the Authority and refusing to help them. Now they’ll team up to fight three people with a combined age of over 130 years. Believe in the Shield!



All praise be to the virtues of hustle, loyalty, and respect! John Cena has been the top dog of the WWE for the last nine years, since winning the WWE Championship for the first time at WrestleMania 21. Since then, he’s won 14 world titles, spent over 1000 days as WWE Champion, and frustrated a lot of wrestling fans. Bray Wyatt has set his sights squarely on John Cena and the idea of his legacy, vowing to burn it down via any means necessary. The Wyatts cost Cena WWE Championship opportunities in two straight months first at Royal Rumble and again in the Elimination Chamber. Since then, mind games have been played between the two men, dressing up in sheep masks, kidnappings, and other assorted wrestling things. Can Bray Wyatt defeat the man who's been on top for so long? Or will John Cena preserve his legacy and add another check mark to his long illustrious WrestleMania career?



Since returning two years ago, Brock Lesnar has had a tough go in WWE. He's lost to John Cena and Triple H at big shows and despite being the most legitimately frightening man on the roster, he hasn't always been booked that way. Luckily, he's going against another man who has been booked as a killer, the Undertaker. What is there to say about the Undertaker's WrestleMania streak? 21-0 is an amazing complement of matches, beating luminaries such as A-Train, Big Show, and Giant Gonzalez. Lesnar and Undertaker squared off several weeks ago after Lesnar said that there's no man that could stand up to him and got stabbed in the hand with a pen for his troubles. Then, the Undertaker made Lesnar look foolish, appearing in an empty casket and beating the hell out of Lesnar. Lesnar got some measure of retribution this week on Raw, laying Taker out with an F5. The Undertaker is becoming old and mortal, and Lesnar wants to take advantage and be the first man to break the Streak. Will he do it? Probably not, no, but it will be a good match, and Brock will not kill the Undertaker.



Eight months ago, Daniel Bryan won the biggest match of his career, of his life when he pinned John Cena in the middle of the ring to win the WWE Championship. It was taken away by Triple H just minutes later. Seven months ago, Daniel Bryan got retribution on the man who stole his title, Randy Orton, by pinning him in the middle of the ring, albeit with a slight fast count. It was taken away by Triple H just one day later. Six months ago, Daniel Bryan prepared to do battle with Randy Orton within Hell in a Cell, and when it looked like Bryan was about to capture the title once and for all, it was taken away by Triple H and his friend. Three months ago, Daniel Bryan's opportunity was taken away to win the Royal Rumble by Triple H, and given to the returning Batista, which the crowd hated and booed mercilessly. One month ago, Daniel Bryan even got another opportunity at his uncrowned title within the Elimination Chamber, and was about to win when it was taken away from him by Triple H's crony. Fed up with this, Bryan "hijacked Raw", filled the ring with many of his adoring fans, and refused to give in until he got what he wanted: a match with Triple H, and if he won, to be inserted into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match. Triple H has tried to take this away from him too, handcuffing him and beating him savagely around the ring, even threatening to drown him, in an attack that took Bryan out on a stretcher and his status for WrestleMania in doubt. Hunter also made the match stipulation that even if he won, he would be entered into the WWEWHC match himself. Break out the shovels. Bryan returned at Raw, beating up Triple H for his role in attacking him and standing tall in the last thing we see before WrestleMania. This is the story of Daniel Bryan, the best wrestler in the world, the Greatest Of All Time, fighting agaisnt the biggest and baddest people in the world who live to keep him down at every turn. Come watch his coronation.

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.



I am really pumped up for this show, I really hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment because it looks like a really good card.

I'm still assuming that all those people not in America are just poo poo out of luck about getting to see the 6pm-7pm pre-show on the Network, which sucks.

They turned this card around pretty quickly. A month ago I wasn't even going to bother.

For a fairweather fan I'm actually really excited and tonight will probably decide if I get back into it like I was during the Attitude Era.

I don't have much hope, but don't gently caress this up, WWE.

WM XXX has me dancing with the prospect of staying up to watch it. I'm not usually one for stopping up to watch Pay-per-views at horrible hours over here but these seems like it's going to be a belter of a card. I'm normally good with reading re-caps for them and watching replays on TV for RAW and stuff, so it making me consider buying it speaks volumes about the quality for me.

We are gonna kick the WWE Network's rear end tonight, and I hope and pray that Wrestlemania runs smoothly via the Network, as it still seems to good to be true, even hours before showtime.

I really hope they let Bryan have his championship winning moment tonight, as the foregone conclusion to 8 months worth of story has practically been handed to the WWE with a drat bow on it.

This is gonna be a great night. Either somebody who isn't Daniel Bryan leaves with the belt and everybody gets pissed, or Bryan wins and everybody swears up and down forever that this was the plan all along and long-term storylines never doubt the E. I'm not sure which option I want to happen, because both are hilarious.
