Plenty of people called it.

I'd love to see a Rusev v Brock feud, Heyman absolutely ripping the piss out of Lana would be amazing. Hoping for a Bryan v Barrett feud now too.

I've seen quite a few people already say that was one of the best Wrestlemanias, and possibly the best. Not quite sure about that. I thought a lot of the matches were pretty average and the only stand-out ones were Orton v Rollins and the main event. I was disappointed with the ladder match and the Cena v Rusev on just felt a bit flat despite that phenomenal entrance. The Triple H match was just classic Triple H, but not in a good way, and while his segment with the Rock was good it went on for far too long.

Insane to call it one of the best Wrestlemanias.

Rollins was the only new star created tonight and he was over before anyway.

There were no 5* matches. The main event was brilliantly booked but to say it was a great wrestling match? Hmmm.

Really solid Wrestlemania but they got to start putting new people over.

All the money WWE spent getting Lesnar to re-sign they're going to make back in "Suplex City, Bitch" shirts. I've got my heart set on going to Mania next year now

Would anyone like me to upload the post-Wrestlemania Wrestling Observer Radio podcast?

Just watched the main event. :datass:

That was so good. I didn't think Reigns was capable of a good match but it turns out he can have one if you just throw him around the entire match.

Brock is so good at just being a badass, I'm so glad he's sticking around and I'm already looking forward to seeing his return.

So glad Seth got to cash in and win. He's been looking like the main guy for some time now and he finally gets to be it.

Bar the Orton/Rollins match and the main event, nothing else stood out to me as fantastic. But those two matches alone made it a pretty great show.

How did Reigns come out looking good from that main event exactly?

He got thrown around the ring like a rag doll for 3/4 of it before getting pinned by Rollins.

Brock was the one who was protected and came out of that like he'd been stiffed.

He fought a stiff match with Brock Lesnar, he gets points for being tough at the very least. He was also part of a fantastic Wrestlemania main event, so if that doesn't earn some respect from the more hardcore fans I don't know what can. I hope the fans lay off him now and he is slowly built up again

He looked tough - Lesnar threw him around like a rag doll and he wouldn't quit. It took a city full of suplexes, four F5s and two curb stomps to put him down.

Not sure that can be considered one of the greatest WMs ever when there wasn't even a single 5* classic on the card. Considering the horrible build leading up to it the event was definitely a success, though. Much better than I think anyone was expecting.

The only real downer was HHH winning, getting the face handshake and then reverting back to heel in the Rock face-off near the end. Still not sure why Sting would come to WWE after all this time for that but I suppose he'd have known about it in advance. I also like having Cena and Bryan with the other titles - especially as it should keep the former out of the title picture for a while. And if Brock is going to stick around I hope they let him do more than two moves all match. You can make him look like a wrecking machine doing other moves, too.

Edit: Oh, and Big Show winning the BR was also a downer. And maybe Undertaker beating Bray in a forgettable match as well.

Thanks. But one of the best WWE shows of all time? Really, Dave?

Superb event, looking forward to watching it again and going to stay up for Raw.

Although id agree there wasn't a 5* match, but top to bottom every match was pretty good. Main event was brutal, awesome stuff. Gutted for Reigns but Rollins is brilliant and was an amazing surprise.

Brock needs to stop with this suplex pish, looks the part but gets pretty boring 3rd title match in a row doing the same thing. Brock must have been bleeding at three different parts of his face, glad they both went for it as I thought they would.

strawberry float yeah. The point is that he suplexes them into destruction and no-one has an answer to him. I actually think it's fantastic.

And the suplexes themselves. He makes it look like it's all his pure strength.
