WWE Wrestlemania 31 3/29/15

We are 15 minutes away from the Wrestlemania Kick-Off show.  2 big matches are set in the show.  Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Team Titles.

Keep it locked here throughout the night.

We are in Santa Clara, California, at Levi Stadium.

Renee Young welcomes us to the show. The panel consists of Bryan Saxton, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

2 matches are set in the Kick-Off show. Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Team Titles. Also, Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

This could be a history moment for any of these wrestlers to win.

Time to go to the Social Media Lounge, with Tom Phillips. Use #Wrestlemania to talk. In the second hour, we will be joined by Hall of Famer Lita.

Rusev Vs Cena match is profiled now.

Rusev is backstage, Lana approaches him saying she would never show compassion again. Rusev brings up tonight, he crushes Cena, and America dies.

I guess all is forgiven.

Tonight, Cena will face Rusev for the United States Title.

John Cena on Kimmel this past week is being shown.

Another match that we will see is HHH Vs Sting.

Eden is backstage, hoping to get a word from HHH.

She tries to knock the door, but Kane interrupts, saying nobody enters the room. Just leave, and now he must prepare for Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Sting Vs HHH video is now being shown.

Booker T shares his thoughts on the match, knowing both men.

Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury run into Gerald Briscoe and Pat Patterson.

Seth Rollins Vs Randy Orton video is being shown.

Does Seth Rollins stand a chance against “The Viper”?

Tonight, on the Kick-Off show, we will have a Fatal 4-Way. Kidd and Cesaro Vs Los Matadores Vs The New Day Vs The Uso’s.

And, we will have Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Clips of this week, featuring WWE stars on TV. Wrestlemania Week is here.

Divas tag action is set tonight. The Bella Twins Vs AJ Lee and Paige. Can AJ and Paige even get along?

We now see what should be an epic match, The Undertaker Vs Bray Wyatt video.

What condition will The Undertaker be in tonight?

Fatal 4-Way for the Tag Team Titles in the second hour of the show.

Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns video is being shown, including Brock announcing that he is staying with WWE, extending his contract.

Roman Reigns has to prove tonight he can be the man. We see a video on him now.

Hour 2 of the Kick-Off show begins now.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

Fatal 4-Way for the WWE Tag Team Titles are up now.

Kidd and Cesaro Vs Los Matadores Vs The New Day Vs The Uso’s are up now.

Cesaro and Kidd retain their titles when Cesaro stole a pin after a Uso Splash, pinning Big E.

Tom Phillips has Lita as his guest in the Social Media Lounge.

There could always be a possibility of Team Besties Vs The Bellas someday. Hmmmmm.

We hear from Jon Gruden and his analysis of Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal contenders.

Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is set now.

Curtis Axel is eliminated. Such a shame.

Big Show wins Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Ryback was in the Final 4, but the story here is Damien Sandow finally stood up to The Miz, and eliminated him. But at the end of the match, Big Show eliminates Sandow, and wins the big one.

We are just 10 minutes away from Wrestlemania.

The IC Title Ladder Match will kick off Wrestlemania, and we see a video package of that.

Pat Patterson hangs up the IC Title, and we start now.

Aloe Blacc is singing the national anthem to kick the show off.

LL Cool Jay is giving us a video tribute to Wrestlemania.

We are live in Levi Stadium, in San Francisco Bay area. Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

The Ladder match for the IC Title begins the show. Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler Vs Bad News Barrett Vs R-Truth Vs Stardust Vs Luke Harper Vs Dean Ambrose.

Daniel Bryan found a way to win the IC Title for the first time in his career. It came down to he and Ziggler, who traded blows. But Daniel was able to get Ziggler off the ladder, and make history.

Orton Vs Rollins is up now.

Orton wins with a RKO, when Rollins was trying a Curb Stomp. A good match between these two, and I think they are doing this because Rollins is cashing in on Money in the Bank tonight.

Just a hunch.

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is in attendance.

Sting Vs HHH is now.

HHH just gave us an amazing Terminator entrance.

Here we go.

HHH wins in a No DQ match where we see HHH and DX, Vs Sting and NWO all face off. But Hunter uses the top issue of the sledge-hammer, and pins Sting.

What a fun match this was.

At the end of the match, HHH wants to face Sting one more time, and this time to shake his hand/

The two men embrace, and this was a moment here.

Some new shows are coming to WWE Network, some sound good, others do not. But they are trying.

Marie Menonous is interviewing Daniel Bryan. All of the former IC Champions congratulate Daniel.

Pat Patterson, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Ric Flair (Woooooooo!!), and Bret “The Hitman” Hart all congratulate him, and while they do The Yes Chants, we hear from Ron Simmons.

Damn!!

Travis Barker, Skylar Grey, and Kid Ink all perform the Wrestlemania theme song.

The halftime portion of the show is complete. The Wrestlemania panel is having a good time. Now divas action with The Bellas Vs The Dream Team of AJ Lee and Paige.

AJ and Paige win the match with AJ making Nikki tap out to Black Widow.

It’s been one full year now since Paige debuted in WWE. What a run she has had, her first Wrestlemania moment.

Now we get the Hall of Fame moment. A fun night, seeing that show. And they are all out on the stage.

John Cena Vs Rusev is next.

Cena wins the United States Title when Rusev ran into Lana, who looked worried for Rusev. It is turned to an AA and Cena wins. Rusev picks up his first loss.

Rusev is screaming at Lana for costing him the match as she is being tended to.

The Wrestlemania Kick-Off panel is here, and we see what happened earlier today, with Cesaro and Tyson Kidd retaining their titles.

We also saw Big Show win Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Stephanie McMahon and HHH are here to announce that they set an outdoor attendance record of over 76,000 people.

Stephanie now completely heels the crowd and says this wouldn’t be possible without her. And of course her husband.

HHH tells us the truth hurts, because not only did he beat Sting tonight, he felt that he beat anyone that has been against them. He feels so good about that, it feels he beat all 76,166 fans here. And he feels like he beat millions more, watching WWE Network.

HHH owned Sting, just like he owns every single superstar and diva in the back. And he owns us, because at the end of the day, The Authority always wins.

If ya smell what The Rock is cooking….

Here comes The Rock.

The crowd is loving this moment, and frankly, so is Stephanie McMahon.

You don’t own them, and you sure don’t own The Rock. What you fail to see is The Rock is an East Bay boy. The Rock was born in The East Bay.

The Rock sees it, they have two choices. HHH can go in the back and dress like Terminator again, or they can create a Wrestlemania moment right here, right now. One of the biggest rivalries of all time. The pie eating, jabroni beating, kicking HHH’s ass until he can’t stop.

HHH speaks now, and says they had a hell of a rivalry. He remembers kicking his ass throughout most of it, so he has nothing to prove to The Rock.

Just like how The Rock left his heart in San Francisco, it’s clear HHH left his balls in Stamford, Connecticut.

Stephanie tells Rock he has to feed his own ego, because he knows The Rock would be nothing without The McMahon family.

He can talk about “High Chief” Peter Maivia. He can talk about Rocky Johnson, or Dwayne Johnson, but he wouldn’t be anything without Vince McMahon, Vince McMahon Jr. or Stephanie McMahon.

Oddly enough, no mention of Shane McMahon, which the fans picked up on.

Rock said that it’s funny she brings up Johnson, because she wouldn’t be running this place without Vince’s Johnson.

Stephanie slapped Rock, and ordered him to get out of the ring. This is HER company.

She berates him, while he leaves. But Rock sees someone in the crowd that is willing to fight.

Ronda Rousey.

Rock introduces us to Ronda. While Rock wouldn’t hit a woman, she would.

Stephanie tells Rock they are friends, she was there watching her match at last year’s Summerslam.

Rock reminds Steph that Ronda kicks ass, and Steph says if this was a MMA ring, she would agree, but this is a squared circle, this is HER ring.

Ronda tells Steph that her ring is any ring.

Now Stephanie berates Ronda, and Rock reminds her that the look Ronda is giving is right before she whips some ass.

HHH now gets into it, and The Rock fights with HHH, with Ronda giving HHH a hip toss.

Now Stephanie dares Ronda to take action, and Ronda twists her arm, until Stephanie pleads for Ronda to let go.

Ronda flings Steph out of HER ring. What we just saw was a Wrestlemania Moment of The Rock and Ronda Rousey whipping Steph and HHH.

We go from that moment, to this moment.

Bray Wyatt Vs The Undertaker is next.

Undertaker grew out his hair a bit, and looked in tremendous shape. He defeated Bray with a Tombstone Piledriver. We had a segment here when Bray was doing his spider walk, and Taker sat up, doing his Taker sit.

Just an incredible moment.

Chris Jericho is bringing his podcast, on Monday April 6th, after Raw, on WWE Network. That should be fun.

Our main event, Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns is now.

Wow, an incredible ending that felt very, very rushed.

These two men beat the hell out of each other. Reigns took 10 suplexes, Lesnar took 3 Superman Punches. We had 3 spears, 3 F5’s, but nobody was pinned.

Then…

We hear Seth Rollins music, and he cashes in on MITB breifcase, and turns this into a Triple Threat match.

So….

we have a new WWE Champion, when Seth Rollins hits a Curbstomp, and pins Reigns.

That is how we end the show, with Seth Rollins celebrating the title win, and tomorrow night on Raw should be something else.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very fun 6 hours that didn’t seem to drag at all, and every match lived up to its billing. I just wonder though what they will do with Reigns. I like the guy, but there were many boos for him, and no matter what happens, they hated any offensive move he made. Do they turn him heel?

And how pissed off with Brock be tomorrow night on Raw?

So much happened, and the night after Mania usually has fun Raw’s too, so we’ll see where we go from here.

What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts, and we’ll watch Raw tomorrow night.
