WWE Wrestlemania 32 4/3/16

“The Showcase Of The Immortals” are here.  No matter how you feel about the buildup this season, and I have been a very big critic of it, tonight will still be fun.  The men and women will work hard.  The Kick-Off show will start at 5:00.  So keep checking throughout the night.

We are live in Dallas, Texas.  Renee Young joins us with Lita and Booker T.

Corey Graves is among the masses outside Texas Stadium.

Tom Phillips and Cathy Kelly are in the Social Media Lounge.

Paul Heyman is a guest on tonight’s Social Media Lounge.  We can ask him questions later tonight.

Corey Graves is once again outside the arena, with the people.

3 Kick-Off matches tonight.  Kalisto will face Ryback for the United States Title.  We will also see the 10-Diva Tag match.  And The Usos facing The Dudley Boyz.

Jo-Jo is standing by with the Intercontinental Champion, Kevin Owens.

Kevin reminded Jo-Jo he was forced into this match, but he still likes his chances against his 6 opponents.

But he didn’t mention Sami Zayn.  Owens doesn’t care about his past, he cares about tonight.  That is KO-Mainia.

Now we preview Chris Jericho Vs AJ Styles, later tonight.

The people love Corey Graves, as he asks questions for them.

History is made tonight, Triple Threat Title match for the Divas Title.  Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Becky Lynch.

Tonight, Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.  Cesaro won 2 years ago.  Big Show won it last year.  Who takes it tonight?

Also The New Day will face The League of Nations, and we see the attack League of Nations put on New Day.

Dean Ambrose will face Brock Lesnar in a Hardcore Streetfight.

We see the awesome video of this now.

Cathy Kelly and Tom Phillips are with Paul Heyman.

Brock will be ready for Dean, he will take care of him with his hands.

Expect many trips to Suplex City.

Heyman isn’t even entertaining the thought of Ambrose conquering Brock.

Corey Graves shows us the entrance of the ramp, he is ready to join the gang.

Highlights are being shown from last night’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Mauro Ranello join us with Jerry “The King” Lawler and Byron Saxton.  United States Title match is set now.  Kalisto Vs Ryback.

Kalisto defeated Ryback with the Salido Del Sol, picking up an upset victory when there was an exposed turnbuckle.  The “little” guy defeated the “big” guy.

Second hour of the Kick-Off show is about to begin.  Tonight, in this hour, we will see the 10-Diva tag match and The Dudleys face The Usos.

Hour 2 has begun.  Renee Young, Booker T, Lita, and Corey Graves are present.

The Rock will be here tonight.

We are all set for the next match.  Team Bad and Blonde will face Total Divas.

Team Bella wins when Brie makes Naomi tap out to the Yes Lock, in honor of her husband, Daniel Bryan.  Nikki Bella made an appearance at the end of the match, to congratulate her sister, and Total Diva cast mates.

Next, a preview for tonight’s Hell in a Cell match between Shane McMahon Vs The Undertaker.

Lita is in the ring.

She talks about the very first moment of Wrestlemania I, seeing Cyndi Lauper raise Wendy Richter’s hand when she won her match.  She knew from that day she would be in WWE, and nobody would tell her no.  Just like The Fabulous Moolah, May Young, Alundra Blaze, Jacqueline, and of course her bestie, Trish Stratus all helped build the WWE Divas division.

Just now we saw 10 women all vying to wrestle.  We have a big Triple Threat match tonight, between Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Becky Lynch.  The winner will be the first ever WWE Women’s Champion.

She reveals a new Women’s Championship, which means no more butterfly.

The Usos Vs The Dudley Boyz is now.

The Usos win the match with a kick, pinning Devon.

But after the match, Dudleys attack them, and it’s time to get the tables.

The Usos put the Dudleys through the tables.

A Wrestlemania moment, indeed.

We are 10 minutes away from Wrestlemania PPV.

The rundown of the card tonight.  Some big matches.

Reigns Vs HHH video is showing now.

Fifth Harmony is singing America The Beautiful.

Another awesome Wrestlemania intro that sounds like Kelsey Grammar did, and the show begins.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

We kick the night off with the ladder match, for the Intercontinental Championship.

Holy shit, Zack Ryder just won the IC Title, shoving The Miz off the ladder.  A big moment for Zack.  He celebrates the title win with his father.

What a moment.

Jericho Vs AJ Styles is now.

Jericho picks up the win, with a Codebreaker, while AJ was trying a Phenomenal Forearm.

Marie Menounos is with Zack Ryder.

This was the best moment of his life.  He just wanted his music to be played, and he did this.  He was at MSG seeing Razor Ramon defeat Shawn Michaels to win the IC Title.  He took a picture with him, holding his belt.  Now, he wants a picture taken with him, and Razor holding his belt.  He can retire tonight, he can retire tomorrow, but this is living the moment.

Woo Woo Woo…You Know It.

AHHHHHHH Wrestlemania, don’t be sour, stand up and clap for your world-famous 2-time Tag Team Champions.

It’s a New Day, yes it is.

They are dressed for combat, and they just had a big bowl of their Booty-O’s.

Let’s do this!!

League of Nations Vs New Day is now.

This is actually a 6-man tag match.

Sheamus pins Xavier with the Brogue Kick, picking up the win for League of Nations.

Barrett has the mic, saying there isn’t any 3 men that can beat them because they are a unit.

Enter HBK, Mick Foley, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, all ready for a fight.

What a moment here, all three men are taking care of The League of Nations.

Socko appearance, Sweet Chin Music, flipping the bird….STUNNER!!

And again, but this time on Barrett.

Now New Day want to dance with the three legends.  “Stone Cold” even danced, but he hit a Stunner on Xavier.

Somehow though, that made Xavier’s night.

Lesnar Vs Ambrose is now.

13 trips to Suplex City, chairs all around, DDTs, and a F-5 through the chairs.  Lesnar over Ambrose in a wild and fun brawl.

Ric Flair, Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder, and Charlotte are in a Snickers commercial, that was great.

Over 100,000 fans are in Dallas Stadium tonight, and now is the time to give the HOF inductees their salute.

Women’s Title is up now.  Triple Threat match with Charlotte Vs Becky Lynch Vs Sasha Banks.

Charlotte retains her, or wins the WWE Women’s Championship, with a Figure Eight, making Becky tap out.

A surprising result, but incredible match here.

WWE wants to remind us Ric Flair made sure Sasha didn’t get back in the ring, but still an incredible match.

Hell In A Cell match is up now.  The Undertaker Vs Shane McMahon.  Legacy Vs Career.

Shane walked to the ring, with his kids doing their shuffle, which was cute to see.

But now comes the action.

The Undertaker pins Shane with a Tombstone Piledriver, after both men took this to the outside of the cell, when Taker speared Shane through the cell.  Shane set Taker up on Spanish Announce Table, and went up on top of the cell, for an elbow drop off the top.  But he missed, went crashing through the table.  It was just a matter of time before Taker put Shane out for good.

Such an amazing work, this also was highlighted by Shane giving Taker a Coast to Coast.  Just an incredible job by both men, how any match can follow this one is beyond me.

As Shane is carted off, he gives the thumb up, and pounded his chest as they took him to the back.

Again, incredible.

The Kick-Off panel discuss what we have seen tonight.

Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is up now.

DDP is a part of this match now.

So is Shaq.  Wait, what?

We also have Tatanka making his return too.

We had a moment with Shaq and Big Show, because some years ago, we had a Raw segment between them, but both men were eliminated by the field.

NXT’s own Baron Corbin wins the match, after throwing Kane out.

I think it’s safe to say Baron is now on the WWE roster.

WWE Wrestlemania 33 will be on April 2nd, 2017, at Orlando, Florida.

Now here come the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders.

If Ya Smell-La-La What The Rock Is Cooking.

Here comes “The Great One”.

Rock has a flame thrower in Dallas Stadium.

Finally The Rock has come back to Dallas!!

Which means, finally The Rock has come back to Wrestlemania.  Now that entrance, wow, ROCK is on fire.  The beautiful, iconic Dallas Cheerleaders.  More importantly than that, this crowd.

The Rock sees a lot of happy smiles right there.  You are so happy, you will be making a lot of Wrestlemania babies.  But this is the moment he has been talking for months.  This honor and privilege to walk down the ramp, speak on the mic in front of  100,000.

The Rock and his millions…..AND MILLIONS.  Dallas, texas, The Rock said we would be making history.  They will do something that has never been done before.  Records are made to be broken.

It is with great honor, that The Rock informs us that we have officially broken the WWE attendance record, of 101,763 people in attendance.

I am guessing we are going over with this tonight, since it’s 10:47 and we haven’t had our main event yet.

Now Dallas, Texas as Rock says, it is going to get good.

Light go out, and here come The Wyatt Family.

Minus Luke Harper.

The fireflies are in full effect here in Texas Stadium.

Hello Rock.

Now you may not know me, but I know you.  So please Mr. Rock allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Bray Wyatt, and these are my brothers.

Now Mr. Rock he has come tonight, not as a friend, and not as an enemy, but as a reminder of the truth.  The truth is he chose Rock.

He chose him because he represents success.  He represents greatness.  He chose him because he is a big lie.

He chose him because he is the great one, the people’s champion.  He chose him because this not his moment.  And these aren’t the fans moment.  This is Bray’s moment.

Bray will destroy Rock, and he will make his people watch every second of it.

So, let The Rock get this straight.  They just broke a Wrestlemania record.  There will be many Rock babies being made tonight.  No, hey Rock, that was a great moment, nice to see you.  But you came out with whining?

Hey, you look like you have been hitting the bong 8 days straight.

Rowan and Braun come in the ring, but Rock stops them.

This will not end right.  Rowan looks like his parents are related.  And Braun looks like he was breast-fed at 26.

But he wants to speak to Bray.  The Rock knows who he is.  He has been watching him since he first came in.  He has the charisma, he has the look.  He has the beard.  He has the people right at the palm of his hands.  But Bray speaks out that he is the eater of the words, he looks like he is the eater of Hot Pockets.

Now that is where you are wrong.  He is not here to make a statement, he is here to kick the door down.

The Rock then says if this has to be, he is here to have a Wrestlemania match, whether it’s Bray, or one of his Duck Dynasty goons, let’s do this.

It’s Erik Rowan, and Rock pins him in 6 seconds with a Rock Bottom.

The Wyatts surround the ring, but here comes….

John Cena.

Boy, Cena is strong.

Rock Bottoms, 5 Knuckle Shuffles, Attitude Adjustment, and oh yeah, The People’s Elbow.

Rock tells Cena welcome back, if ya smell what The Rock is Cooking.

Our main event, for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is up now.  HHH Vs Roman Reigns.

Roman Reigns pins HHH with a spear, to become a 3-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  It started slow, but the finish was very good.  Reigns spears Stephanie.  She somehow, miraculously hands HHH a sledgehammer, underneath the ring.  Superman punch, and a spear, gives Roman the win.

The show ends with Roman celebrating the win.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

4 hours, and 45 minutes later, I enjoyed this show.  Horrible build ups, but the men and women worked very hard.  Best match of the night still was Triple Threat Women’s Title match, even with the ending.  But Shane Vs Taker was the moment of the night.

A slew of returns, including John Cena, who was told he had a 6-9 month recovery, and he laughed about that.  Like him or not, I have a ton of respect for the wear and tear he puts on his body to entertain the fans.

Now comes tomorrow night, where do we go from here?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow.

    So when is the Roman Heel Turn? How badly as he booed?

    Happy to see Taker win his match…wonder if he starts thinking if he wants to do this again, since this was a stupid use of his talent.

    I’ll buy the DVD later this spring…maybe…

    So LofN and The New Day was not for the title? What was the point of the match then?

    • Roman was booed but at the end of the match, he was cheered somewhat. I have to think too Taker is wrapping up his career, no? Overall it was a fun night. Almost 7 hours though. WOW.

  2. adztheman says:

    Considering about half the matches were part of the two hour pre game–the ten woman botch fest, and the Uso’s getting booed versus the Dudleys were part of the second hour of the pregame on USA…I figured they had plenty of time for the street fight and everything else that was part of WWE Network/PPV cast.

    Both Roman and Charlotte (Joe and Ashley in the real world) were flown to NYC for The Today Show—I assume they flew back to Texas aftewards, assuming they could get of Lagurdia or JFK given the weather…that would be hilarious if both couldn’t make it back for Raw Tonight.

    ESPN had Shane’s leap from the top of Hell in A (The) Cell as part of their roster of highlights this morning….pretty impressive for a 46 year old man…

    Meanwhile, they have some roster decisions to make, since both Bellas are done tonight for good…is this time for Bailey to hug the main roster, or is she going to be relegated to NXT forever and ever?

    • Bayley will be here soon enough, probably tonight. Especially since she lost the NXT Women’s Title. The one thing I take away with though is the Diva Revolution has taken over WWE. That match last night, for the Women’s Title was fun, and I think too this is just the beginning. Back to the days of Trish Vs Lita.
