WWE WrestleMania 32 full movie review - Wrestlemania Does Dallas! Was it worth it? Somewhat. It was a very successful card.
Everything is bigger in Texas, even Wrestlemania. While Wrestlemania 32 might not have the attendance record, that their saying, they have on their web site (101,763); they still did beat the 1987's WrestleMania 3 Pontiac Silverdome record, big time.
They did all this, with a so-so show. Being the first to take place, Dallas, and the third, Wrestlemania to held in the state of Texas after 2001's WM17 & 2009's WM25. The PPV show was indeed somewhat interesting with the way, they were able to pull alright show, with the majority of the top wrestlers being injury. Yet, there is also a lot of flaws, with this show. Without spoiling too much of the show, the Pre-Show match between Kallisto Vs Ryback for the United States Championship was a little too short. They could really spent, more time for this match, rather than showcasing all the repetitive video match packages, and WrestleMania predictions from the pre-show commentaries crew. Because of that, I wasn't too engage in this match. The next match on the pre-show was 10 Women Tag Team Match with Team Total Divas (Brie Bella, Paige, Natalya, Alicia Fox and Eva Marie) VS Team B.A.D. & Blonde (Lana, Naomi, Tamina, Emma and Summer Rae) was surprising, pretty good, despite the fact, that this storyline is just a recycle feud from Survivor Series 2013. Eve Marie and Lana really show, their stuff. Their in-ring performances has really improved. I just can't behind the teams names. They were awful. The main event of the pre-show was The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) Vs The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley). It was alright, but the ending to the match, wasn't what fans really wanted. The opening match for the PPV, the Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match, between Zack Ryder, Kevin Owens (c), Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Sami Zayn, Stardust & Sin Cara was also great with all the extreme risk taking stunts. Love the tribute to American Dream, Dusty Rhodes as well. The winner was an absolute shocker to start off the evening, since he was pretty much, a jobber in the last several years. Nice to see him, get a push to the top, like he deserves. Chris Jericho VS A.J. Styles was next. It was good solid match, despite them, taking it slow, in certain spots, due to them, coming up in age. I just kinda wish, they add a match stipulation or variation to this normal match, since it's supposed to be, the end of their feud. They really need to spice it up, if they continue it. Anyways, the Six-Man Tag is next, with The League of Nations (Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio and Rusev) (with King Barrett) Vs The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods). Match was fine, but the entrance with New Day was the highlight. Love the big cereal box! I kinda dig, the after the match, beat-down with certain wrestlers. I know, that he can't wrestle, anymore, but I just wish, Stone Cold Steve Austin was in somewhat in shape and in his gear for this part with Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley. No Holds Barred Street Fight between Brock Lesnar VS Dean Ambrose was kinda disappointing. Not only do, I disagree with the results of who won, but the match was generic. Nothing really stood out. It was average, at best. Women's Championship: Triple Threat Match is next, with Charlotte (c) being against Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks. An argument can be made that this was one of the match of the night. The three ladies put together a tremendous performance with awesome near falls, great spots outside the ring and some interesting submission combinations. Love the fact, that the Divas Championship is retiring, but the results of the winner is mixed to me. Hell in a Cell with The Undertaker Vs Shane McMahon is also mixed, even with the crazy big bump. I hate the build-up to this match with Undertaker (A Face) helping Vince McMahon (Heel) to take out his son, Shane, because of a mystery lockbox. It makes no sense. Plus, there was really no point to this match if you watch Raw, the following night. I also don't like, how Undertaker looks. He really looks goofy with the cowboy leather bottom jeans. Plus, he really look pass his prime, with no shirt, on. Then, there is Shane, who isn't a train wrestler at all. Yes, he does crazy stunts, but come on, he's nowhere near the level of an average WWE wrestler. Still, McMahon went as far as he could in the match, and he deserves major props for his performance. Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal is fun with some returning legends, celebrities, and young wrestlers. The next match was a surprised, since Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had been billed as participator, but not as a wrestler. Sadly, it was, in dispense of the Wyatt Family. It's also weird to see John Cena get a 'pop' from the crowd. The main event of the evening was the WWE Heavyweight Championship between Triple H (c) Vs Roman Reigns with the fans not really too much into the match. I wasn't into it. I found it to be mediocre. I love, Triple H's over the top entrance, better with Stephanie McMahon looking so hot, with evil queen outfit. Overall: WrestleMania 32 absolutely had its moments, but this exceptional event is more glamorous in its style, than its ring substance and billing. It's a fun watch, but in the overall ranking of WrestleMania. It's a run of the mill show. I'm sorry, but it is. Still, go see it, if you're a wrestling fan.
