Weird doing both women's title matches on night one. The tag team match is surely night two, maybe along with some sort of women's battle royal.

that's what I thought at first, but I guess since they have no Men's World Title match on Night 1, it sort of makes sense...

I just want Rhea in there somewhere. Give her another hour long gauntlet match against everyone else not already on the card.

Only thing that could make it more "stupendous-er" would be if The Rock sings his most famous track to date - "Pie" from the album - WWF The Music, Vol. 5 (2001)......... My favourite few lines he says is -

"Til FINALLY, a plate of the next door neighbor's
Gulped it down fast, cause it really did please
I mean it tasted so good, Rock was talking Chinese
Ching-bong-bing-yao-moya-AIYYYYY! Dat good pie
Oh that's the pie you was talkin' about"




Lyrics:

[Intro: The Rock]
Mmm... mm mm mm
You know the Rock's gonna tell you a little story
You ain't gonna believe it, but he's gonna tell you anyway
It's tough to be the Rock, ah nah nah shut your mouth
No no, it really is (oh yes)
Even though the Rock is, the Rock is
THE MOST, electrifying man in all of showbiz (oh yes)
You see when the Rock gets too much (too much)
Too much of the fame and, and all the bright lights (too much)
He likes to kick back and, have a slice of that
Unadulterated, delight

[Interlude: Slick Rick & The Rock]
Welcome to Rick's bakery, can I help..
Wait a minute, aren't you the famous Rock?
Yeah the Rock, the People's Champ in the house
What's happenin Slick?

My God hey how ya doin guy?
Look you gotta take a picture with me 'fore you leave guy
Oh whoa whoa the Rock don't want to take pictures
The Rock just wants a piece of pie
You got any of that in this bakery?

Oh, I got every kind of pie you can think of
I got strawberry pie, blueberry pie, apple pie
Blueberry - what?
I got peaches
Ah no no no, whoa whoa whoa
Actually Slick, it doesn't matter what type of pie you have
Let the Rock tell you a little story, about pie



[Verse 1: The Rock & Slick Rick]
Drivin down South though quickly aroused
When my car caught a flat near this old farm house
I hope somebody's home, takin a chance at it
Knocked on the door and this fine chick answered it
(You're the Rock!) Can I use your phone? (I'm shakin'!)
Sure, if you try some of this pie I'm bakin'
Daisy Duke shorts on, five foot stood
Said sure - what the heck, I mean it did smell good
So when she called Rock in the kitchen, towards the vapor
There's her grandmother, aunt, and her Chinese neighbor?

[Interlude 2: The Rock]
Oh the Rock is gonna tell ya again
See it's tough to be the Rock (oh yes)
Oh yeah, the Rock knows, that might sound crass (oh yes)
Oh and by the way, all you jabronis in the locker room
You can ALL come kiss the Rock's ass! (oh yes)
Cause you know after the Rock lays the smack down (too much)
On some big ugly hermaphrodite (too much)
The Rock needs a little distraction
And a slice, sounds just right

[Verse 2: The Rock & Slick Rick]
(The Rock said) Thanks ladies (and more kind words)
(Grandmother said) Be polite, eat mine first
So I sat down, tried hers, she looked quite glad
Had a strange taste of mold, but it wasn't so bad
(That's right!) The Rock havin pie in the country
Devoured hers, her aunt's, and still I was hungry
(That's all Rock said?) Bored and readin the papers
'Til FINALLY, a plate of the next door neighbor's
Gulped it down fast, cause it really did please
I mean it tasted so good, Rock was talking Chinese
Ching-bong-bing-yao-moya-AIYYYYY! Dat good pie
Oh that's the pie you was talkin' about


[Outro: The Rock]
Oh yeah, the Rock knows the millions can smell it now
It's tough to be the Rock (oh yes)
No no no NO, it really is (oh yes)
Because you all know the Rock is THE MOST
Electrifying, man in all of showbiz (oh yes)
You see when the Rock gets too much (too much)
Too much of the fame and all the bright lights (too much)
He loves to kick back and have a slice
No no no no no, the Rock is gonna eat the WHOLE DAMN PIE!
(Sweet! Sweet! Lah dahhhhhhh)

Can you imagine how good it would be if they wound the clock back 20 years, got rid of C-grade celebs, got rid of the 2nd night, got rid of the ridiculous 1-night show length... and just gave us one 4-hour PPV of the absolute best they have.

I suspect it'd piss smarks off, cos WWE's opinion of "the best they have" is different to most of their fans, but all I want in a wrestling PPV - even Wrestlemania - is to feel like everything matters... and for it to be done in 4 hours.

I don't want to bash WWE for the sake of it, there's still some good stuff they're producing here and there. But the utter commercialisation of the WWE is what has turned away the hardcore fans.

Commercially having two nights is sensible, but it's completely eroded the prestige that came with having a show that was marketed as the 'superbowl' of wrestling.

They've had a huge number of releases yet Raw is still 3 hours and WrestleMania over 2 nights.

With that being said, even after as disappointing as the Rumble was and swearing not to watch Mania, I'll still complain and watch it lol.

Has Cody Rhodes vs Seth Rollis been confirmed or still just a rumor?

I understand the celeb involvement but for mine there are a few meaningless matches like Drew vs Corbin, Mysterios vs Miz /Paul and the New Day vs Sheamus/Holland. I would rather see Ricochet defend his title against Sheamus or they could have had a 4 or 5 way ladder match with Sheamus, Woods, Ricochet and Corbin and perhaps Drew could have been a surprise challenger for Balor's title.

I don't like Shin and Boogs taking on the Uso's when they barely have had tag matches, should have given the Raiders a Mania match up.

The other matches like AJ/Edge, Brock/Roman and the intrigue to see what happens with Stone Cold and Cody will be worth watching alone but feel like they have missed a trick in matching up some of the talent.

This is what your left with when you make it a two day event half the WM card is legit filler and matches that could easily be on an episode of TV on RAW/Smackdown.

My thoughts on the card


Charlotte Flair (c) vs Ronda Rousey (Smackdown Women's Title) - Don't really care much for this but hoping Ronda puts on a show

Becky Lynch (c) vs Bianca Bel Air (RAW Women's Title) - To each woman's credit I've become more interested in this with the buildup the past few weeks and I think this is legit 50/50 on the winner

Rey Mysterio & Dominik Mysterio vs The Miz & Logan Paul - Celeb matches are not my thing don't care

Drew McIntyre vs Happy Corbin - Filler

The KO Show featuring 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin - I know the crowd will eat it up but its probably just going to be a promo face-off for a few minutes and Stone cold giving KO a stunner and that's it, cool I guess?

The Usos (c) vs Shinsuke Nakamura & Rik Boogs (SD Tag Team Titles) - Filler

Sheamus & Ridge Holland vs Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods - This has no reason to be on WM

Seth Rollins vs mystery opponent chosen by Vince McMahon - If its not Cody I legit have no idea who it could be pumped if it is Cody



Roman Reigns (c) vs Brock Lesnar (c) (Winner Takes All, Championship Unification Match) - This should be fantastic really like Brock as a babyface

Sami Zayn vs Johnny Knoxville ('Anything Goes' Match) - Don't care but this should be wacky and have lots of spots so could be fun I guess?

Pat McAfee vs Austin Theory - I like Theory but I don't care to see him wrestle a nobody

AJ Styles vs Edge - Inject it in my veins!

Bobby Lashley vs Omos - Going to take some creative booking this one not sure either one can lose

Queen Zelina & Carmella (c) vs Sasha Banks & Naomi vs Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan vs Natalya & Shayna Baszler (Women's Tag Team Titles) - This is my pick for the surprise match I reckon this will be great

RK-Bro (c) vs Alpha Academy vs Street Profits (RAW Tag Team Titles) - Can't say im excited but interested to see who wins

I barely watch these days but the KO-Austin thing has me somewhat excited. You get the feel this is going to be more then Austin just coming out and doing a stunner. I think there will def be a brawl kind of match that goes for 10-15mins.

Edge v AJ will be good if given the time and has that big feel match.

Ditto Rollins and Cody.

For a person who doesn't watch a lot but Reigns v Lesnar for me has that massive big time fight with a lot on the line.
