The opening was excellent, but overall I've been disappointed in WWE before Mania this year. The opening had a good spot and some trash talking, but without the spot it doesn't have a ton to offer. AJ vs. Jericho (which on paper is my favorite match of Mania potentially) has been weeks of them chanting at each other. That's fine for one week but there's been no decent storytelling. The IC Title match was turned into a giant spottiest when it could have been an one on one epic with Zayn and Owens. The U.S. title match is boring, and the Tag Titles now aren't even on the line. I'm just really 'meh' on this year. And kind of wishing Raw went down to two hours again, which I shouldn't be doing right before WrestleMania haha.
I agree, which is why the extra circus crap isn't needed. Even if they just came out and glared at each other after wins or Jericho distracted Styles once or twice but not in the same constant way, it would be better.
I wish the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal was handled better. It should feature more than just Big Show beating up the Social Outcasts every week. If Braun is going to win it, feature him a little more on his own. Or have it be an opportunity for an up-and-comer to talk about Andre's legacy and wanting to face tough odds to win it.
