WrestleMania 33 Results


Another WrestleMania is in the books! Let’s run down the results, give some commentary, and most of all #ThankYouTaker.

Roman Reigns defeated The Undertaker in a No Holds Barred Match

Shortly before the entrances, it was announced that this match had been changed to a No Holds Barred Match and there would be a special guest commentator, Jim Ross. A very nice surprise to see/hear Good Ol’ JR in the house to call the Undertaker’s final ride.

Reigns scored the victory after a triple criss-cross spear for the final 1-2-3 of The Undertaker’s career. Undertaker was in control early on throwing Reigns through an announce table, but the tide turned soon after when Reigns returned the favor with a spear through another announce table. The crowd was solidly behind The Undertaker, as expected, cheering him on with every kick out but the sheer number of spears and a beat down with a steel chair became too much for the Deadman.

The end of this ‘Mania, however, won’t be remembered for this match itself, but the aftermath of The Undertaker calling it a career. After Reigns’ fireworks and a replay package, we returned to the ring to find Taker back in his full entrance gear. As Orlando looked on, Taker removed his gloves, coat, and hat, leaving them in the ring to signify the end of his legendary WWE run.

WrestleMania 33 Match by Match Preview


Brace yourselves, the amount of times you’ll have to hear about tonight’s show being “The Ultimate Thrill Ride” is about to skyrocket because it’s WrestleMania Sunday! A mammoth 13-match, 5+ hour evening awaits you from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL, LIVE on the WWE Network!  In addition to this preview, be sure to listen to Big Shooter, Goat & Brock give their thoughts on WrestleMania from this week’s show. Let’s run down the card for the Showcase of the Immortals.


WWE World Championship: Bray Wyatt (C) vs. Randy Orton

For nearly a quarter of 2016, The Eater of Worlds has been embroiled in conflict and partnership with The Viper, Randy Orton. After battling each other at No Mercy, Orton bent the knee to Wyatt, joining Harper & Wyatt’s Family in October. At first, it was a match made in heaven hell: sole survivors of the Raw vs. SmackDown singles match at Survivor Series, a tag team championship victory, a Royal Rumble win by Orton, and a WWE Championship win by Wyatt.

However, The Viper was merely laying in wait. First, causing a rift between Harper and Wyatt, then betraying Wyatt by burning Sister Abigail’s remains and the Wyatt Compound to the ground. A series of supernatural back and forth exchanges have consumed the pair since, with Wyatt bathing in Abigail’s ashes and proclaiming himself all-powerful, and Orton returning to the compound driving Wyatt’s Crusix into Abigail’s charred remains in an attempt to end her powers.

Now the duo square off in the main event at WrestleMania to presumably end the story.

Prediction: Bray Wyatt. The introduction of the Crusix and the army of masked acolytes two weeks ago on SmackDown has my spider sense tingling for a return or new members being introduced to Wyatt’s flock, aiding the champion in retaining his championship.
