Wrestlemania show - Our Ratings
This year, as expected, the Wrestlemania was predictable. The problem with the company making fan-based selection is that it will lead to predictable results. This precisely what happened. Yeah, it feels great to have Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston and Becky Lynch leading the stables now. But bleh, the unpredictability was missed. John Cena's return as Doctor of Thuganomics was the best segment of the night.
OUR RATING - 2 out 5 (Needed to be more unpredictable, but feels great to have desired winners)
