I don't know if Edge is a true heel right now. If Reigns or Edge win I can see Edge feuding him and continuing to be the babyface just with a little more of an ... edge. Cool to have a main event with 3 possible winners but I'm gonna say Bryan takes the pin and then is folded into the Rollins/Cesaro, which involves both the freshest feud Bryan has left for major players (Rollins) and his inevitable future tag team champion (Cesaro)

Since its the first show back in front of fans I think babyfaces end both nights going over. Daniel Bryan submits
Edge and Bianca Belair pins Sasha.

Edge still gets a good pop if he wins though

Anyways, was that really the best they could do for the Raw before Wrestlemania? McIntyre vs Corbin, feel the excitement!

On paper, this seems like the weakest Wrestlemania card since Wrestlemania XI.

Really hoping that post-Mania and when audiences slowly start returning that WWE gets back to.... well, something better than it's been for awhile.

The card is good, but the lack of Undertaker, Cena, Lesnar, HHH, etc... make it feel much smaller than normal.

Notable names like Nakamura, Corbin, Ricochet, Ali, Otis, etc. are all in the Battle Royale this year. Yeah...

(And thank God no Goldberg. That makes the card bigger by default.)

The biggest problem is the lack of build for most of these matches. I, personally, don't mind who really wins any of them. Well, I guess I want Braun to beat Shane, but only because Shane is one of the most annoying guys out there and Braun losing would be kind of the nail in his career. And I favor Asuka winning, but a new champion might(?) shake up the division a bit.

I wish The Dre had some bigger stakes, like the winner getting a title shot on Raw the next night or something. Otherwise I’m not sure what else you do with those guys without bloating the card. Nak or Jey Uso winning a title opportunity would be worthwhile though.

If we added Charlotte v Lacey Evans would it really help?

Becky v Asuka for the title she never lost would be big for sure though. And if the rumored AJ v HHH match came about that would round out the card nicely.

I wouldn't be surprised if Becky is ready to return, but they're holding off until there is a large enough audience for her to make her return before. No doubt it'll be among the biggest pops ever.

The matches that would normally be on the kickoff like the Andre the Giant Battle Royal and the SD tag title are on Friday this year. It is possible a different SD tag match comes out of the Friday one though as it's weird they would use two nights on the women's tag and zero on the smackdown tag.

Can we start a petition to keep Walter in the US? Dude always delivers and would be awesome on any one of the 3 main shows.

Indeed... in that he always delivers, and is one of the top talents in all of professional wrestling. He has rightfully held the NXT UK Title for almost 2 years (734 days) now. According to Wiki, it's the longest title reign in WWE since 1988. I don't know what title or by whom though (Demolition maybe?).

I wouldn't be against him being in NXT (US), but really don't know about Raw or Smackdown. The chances are one in a million that they'd actually book him properly on them. Seeing him get stuck in mid-card hell forever in nonconsequential matches for the US or IC titles, which has become the standard booking practice for basically all of NXT's top talent, would be very unfortunate.

Fans or no fans, a Karrion Kross title win gets the same reaction. What do they see in this guy? I don’t get it.

I'm conflicted about Mania this year. I'm happy to see very little part-timer participation (don't even know if Shane qualifies as a part-timer), but... it does feel a bit like a regular PPV, just spread over two nights.

Agree that Walter should either be on main roster or have the regular NXT built around him either as their main champion or have him defend his UK belt streak every PPV.

Lashley v Mac is going on first tomorrow. Very smart move. The hot crowd will be so grateful they won’t try to ruin the match with any shenanigans.

I'm going to have to go back and watch the first 45 minutes or so of tonight. I don't know if it was just me, but I was having a lot of technical issues.

I didn't see the Lashley/Drew match, but did see people say Lashley won by submission. That's interesting. Definitely looking forward to going back to watch it tomorrow.

Rollins' return has been... weird.

Not surprised AJ/Omos beat the New Day.

Braun bringing Shane back inside the cage THROUGH the cage was pretty cool. You'd think they'd run out of ideas by this point for cage matches, but not yet! And Shane took a hell of a bump again. They could have planned it where he went through the ring for some pads, but nope! He probably felt that one more than his usual leaps through tables and such. The match somehow overachieved. Go Braun.

Also, Bayley's great.

And the giant tarp they have above the ring looks ready to burst from the rain that's settled in it.

Also missed the women's tag team turmoil match, but did just see where Mandy fell while walking down the ramp due to the rain... Graves apparently saved the moment by saying it was probably because she's wearing sunglasses at night. :funny:

For real. Morrison sold for him very well, but very impressive nonetheless.

Bad Bunny, candidate for best celebrity cameo performance?

Surprisingly great night one. The only boring match was the opener, otherwise many great moments throughout the night including Omos' starmaking debut, Shane spot, Bad Bunny cool moves, and the spectacular main event.
