I am in no way still a WWE fan or follower, so I won't be able to necessarily comment on WrestleMania itself, but once upon a time I was a die-hard fan, and two of the biggest storylines from last night's WrestleMania 33 really hit home.
Last night, one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time, and one of the biggest name's in the sport's history, may have wrestled his last match. As The Undertaker lost last night to Roman Reigns, he removed his patented Black Hat and Jacket, and laid them in the ring, before walking up the ramp for what most believe to be the last time. The Undertaker made his wrestling debut in 1984, and has had one of the longest and most profound careers imaginable, while becoming one of the most popular wrestlers of all-time. Yet, at 52 years old, and 30+ years in the sport, "The Deadman" has officially called it quits, and his next stop will be the Hall of Fame. You've gotta tip your cap to one of the most entertaining wrestlers ever, and I truly loved every bit of being an Undertaker fan and follower, and will especially look back on his days of battling with and against Kane fondly.
I am however, upset with the WWE for scripting a loss for The Undertaker in his final match, because after all that he has done in his career and for the "sport" and company, you would think they could at least send him off on a high-note. The whole show is pre-determined so it shouldn't even have been a question to give him a story-book ending, but that's just me so, whatever.
The next storyline that shocked the wrestling world, was the return of the Hardy Boyz, who made their WWE return after almost a 6 year hiatus from the company. The Hardy brothers have spent the last 6 years or so bouncing around between TNA and the Independent circuit, but their return last night seems to be likely they will stay with the WWE until retirement at this point. The brothers made a surprise appearance as the 4th team in the 4-way Ladder Match for the WWE tag-team championship, and they won the match in pure-Hardy fashion. There are no two wrestlers who are more exciting in a ladder match than Matt and Jeff Hardy, as the two have made a career off of giving the fans absolutely electric performances and putting their bodies through pain and madness that most people would call insane. I may be checking in on the WWE more often if the Hardy's keep doing what they do best.
Long live the Swanton Bomb baby #HardyBoyz
PS - I always wanted those arm sleeves that the Hardy's wore so badly, I thought they would help me land Swanton's on the trampoline
