Here we are just a few days out from the biggest event on the pro wrestling calendar, WrestleMania. There is always a lot of excitement in the air for wrestling fans about WrestleMania and this year is no different. But with the event reportedly being seven and a half hours long there can be things that get overlooked. So we look at two things to really look forward to at WrestleMania 35.
The Man’s Arrival
From the moment that Becky Lynch attacked Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam, the wrestling world was shaken up. We as members of the WWE Universe had someone we loved lose out on another opportunity. But we just didn’t realize the impact she would have on us all. Becky Lynch was initially set to play heel to Charlotte Flair’s babyface. But that was entirely unbelievable as Charlotte (the proverbial golden goose) was handed another championship opportunity. Charlotte would be inserted into Becky’s championship opportunity. And Charlotte would come out of that triple threat as the victor.
So fast-forward and here we are on the brink of WrestleMania and “The Man” Becky Lynch is the hottest commodity in wrestling. And for the first time ever, women are main eventing WrestleMania. (And rightfully so, I might add.) So when Becky Lynch makes her way out the tunnel and in front of the crowd at WrestleMania that will be an incredible sight to behold.
The King of the Kickoff
As neglected as all the WWE Tag Team Titles are and as devalued as the WWE Championship has been, there is no title more disrespected than the WWE Cruiserweight championship. When first introduced the Cruiserweight Division was not something to truly invest your time into as it was directionless. Then we were presented with the “Cruiserweight Dark Ages” when Enzo Amore was champion. But since Triple H took over creative for 205 Live it has been the most underrated show on the WWE Network.
A lot of 205 Live’s success comes from it’s Champion Buddy Murphy. Buddy Murphy has been putting on extremely high caliber matches every time he steps in the ring. And Sunday, against Tony Nese, should be no different. I’ve said this before and I’ll probably continue to say it if you’re not watching 205 Live you are doing yourself a disservice.
