Telling how in her first match in WWE, there was more entertainment than any of rouseys fights in UFC.

Usually the raw after wrestlemania, someone might come back. Might be worth keeping an eye on.

Tonight's RAW will 100% be better than Mania.

The fall out is usually very good.

Lashley is meant to return tonight.

It needs something big after last night anyway.

Apparently Brock and Vince had a very heated argument after the main event last night.

Something that had so much hype delivered very little.

The first match of the night, the women match and the Rousey match are the only ones worth talking about.

No surprise returns, no OMG moments, no nothing really. Very disappointing.

The crowd chanting "This is awful" in the Lesnar v Reigns match summed it all up.


This has been a trend at WrestleManias and will continue as the likes of Triple H get older. Cena is the last superstar left, with Undertaker practically a once-a-year performer now.

It's amazing that WrestleMania's most entertaining and hot match was the one between three people who've been involved in wrestling for nearly 30 years (Trips, Angle, and Steph) and a household name like Ronda. The new generation is totally hopeless and it shows by the reaction the main event got.

I don't know what's wrong - perhaps we've grown older. WWE looks very whimsical and phony now. It doesn't help that a guy who has no charisma like Reigns is touted as the face of the company. From the likes of Austin, Rock, Triple H, Angle, Undertaker, Cena, Edge, etc. to Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, really?

Also need to turn reigns heel and not force him on to us. He's not bad by any means and he's improved in the ring and mic a lot but Vince is determined to make him the big guy in WWE when it should be done naturally


Last time the heel was the face of the company, that was during the Ruthless Aggression Era (Triple H). Otherwise, it's always been a babyface as the number 1 star or performer, whether it was Sammartino, Hogan, Bret, Shawn, Austin, Rock, or Cena.

If CM Punk wasn't such a laidback douchebag, he'd have been the unrivalled #1 right now.

Don't agree with the Seth Rollins bit. He is the best WWE has got right now.

Fantastic on the mic and he's a quality wrestler. He's probably better as a heel though.

Im going to give some of them the benefit of the doubt as it was their first Wrestlemania. There's a lot of good talent in WWE right now, probably the best there has been in years but they aren't getting the best out of them. The AJ Styles fight was built up as a dream match and the biggest in years but it was average at best.

Everyone knew the Lesnar v Reigns match would be f***ing awful but there's no excuse for Taker v Cena.

It's embarrassing for the WWE producers that NXT takeover put on a solid 10 show right before Mania.

Talent doesn't rival what WWE used to have a decade or 15 years ago. It's just all bland - too generic over how WWE used to have amazingly varied personalities down the years. Everyone seems like a cookie-cutter these days.

Styles against Shinsuke should have been a classic. I agree. I honestly thought we'd have a technical GOAT like Bret/Owen, Steamboat/Savage, Angle/Michaels, or Bryan/Trips. You know they could produce such a classic. It's amazing that they went for it for nearly 20 minutes and all we had was an average match-up.

As for 'Taker/Cena, duh. I mean, such a match is fine when it's Goldberg against Lesnar, but pitting the biggest WrestleMania personality (Undertaker) against WWE's biggest draw over the past 10-12 years in such a match was pathetic. Undertaker should basically retire. It should have been the two of them in a 20-odd minute match as Undertaker's last match. What shambolic booking.

Meh.

Probably the 1st time that Cena has jobbed clean in more than a decade.

Well many said Rhonda's career should be in acting. Looks like she finally made it.

Acting wise she needs to sharpen up a lot. First match so she was bound to struggle but she will get there.

It's her freakish strength which amazed me.

At one point she was throwing Triple H about.

She looks capable of dominating most of the guys let alone the women.

She surprised me.

Compared to how she was in her first Raw appearance a few months ago to now, she was brilliant. Never watched her in UFC so only know her from the films shes done.

Shes hit the big time now.

Still, steph was the star of the show
