We’re a couple weeks away from the biggest show of the year, Wrestlemania. Traditionally, the WWE has gone all out in trying to build up interest for what they call “The Showcase of the Immortals.” This year, we have the WWE once again in a brand split, trying to create two separate shows with two separate identites that never intermingle. Former WWE announcer and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross stated back in July when the brand split first occurred that we as fans would best be able to judge the success of the brand split by Wrestlemania time. So, with Wrestlemania 33 happening on April 2nd and being shown live on the WWE Network, how did Monday Night Raw add up this week?
The state of the WWE is not perfect. Yet there have been much worse times in wrestling history to be a fan of the product. What with the WWE Network, the rise of smaller promotions like Ring of Honor and Lucha Underground, the WWE finally recognizing the benefits of using already established talent like Samoa Joe and Austin Aries, and we’re looking at what could be a great decade of wrestling for us fans. I’m a little iffy on the Wrestlemania card this year but I definitely will be watching.
So what do you think about the Wrestlemania card? Has the WWE built up the show enough to get you interested in subscribing to the WWE Network? How did you like this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw? Sound off in the comments section below.
