With Wrestlemania 33 is finally over, this would be my official review on this pay-per-view. Throughout the entire event, there is a mixed feeling as there are ups and downs. It surprising to see The Hardy Boys make their return which they was included into the fatal four-way match for Raw’s Tag Team Championship while it looks like The Undertaker will be making his last appearance in Wrestlemania. Furthermore, I find that there are a couple topic that I can come up with over the few days to discuss on my personal opinion after watching this event. Without further due, let just start with the review.
Cruiserweight Championship – Neville (c) def. Austin Aries via pinfall
Even though this match is being booked as the kickoff show, it didn’t stop Neville and Austin Aries to give a good match. There are a couple of moment that both wrestlers have made throughout the match. In fact, I’m a bit shock to see this match goes for a good 15 or 16 minutes which was unexpected to see but overall it would be good to see that the cruiserweight wrestler were given a longer time to perform.
Mojo Rawley wins Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
It good to see a wrestler like Mojo Rawley to win a huge match like this as he really needed a pushed by WWE but there was an assist from Rob Gronkowski to provide Rawley to scored the biggest victory of his WWE career. Personally, it’s a bit of a upset to see that there is an interference from outsider to assist with a win.
Intercontinental Championship (Kickoff Show) — Dean Ambrose (c) def. Baron Corbin via pinfall
There is nothing much that I would say about this match except that Baron Corbin really perform in this match as he was dominant almost the entire match even though he can’t capture the win over Ambrose after Ambrose perform his Dirty Deeds finisher after reversing the End of Days to set up the pin.
AJ Styles def. Shane McMahon via pinfall
This match was one of the best match in the entire night as there are a couple of moment throughout the match. Shane McMahon is just being himself as his match is always extreme as there are a couple of moment that both of them had throughout their match. This match really amaze a lot of people including myself and I would say that this is one of the best Shane McMahon match ever.
United States Championship — Kevin Owens def. Chris Jericho (c) via pinfall
While it took a while for the crowd to recover from the Styles-McMahon classic, Owens and Jericho produced a strong match worthy to watch. After a great buildup in recent months which focus on the destruction of their friendship. The match was intense as there are a lot of action throughout the match. At the end, I wasn’t surprised to see that Kevin Owens wins this match.
Raw Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match — Bayley (c) def. Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax
It was relatively a surprise ending as Bayley retained her Raw Women’s Championship title. The match began with Nia Jax was the first person to be eliminated after she was power bomb by Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Sasha Banks. Then, Banks was eliminated by Charlotte after she make the biggest spot of the match as she landed a beautiful corkscrew moonsault from the top rope before Bayley wins this match.
Raw Tag Team Championship Fatal Four-Way Ladder Match — The Hardy Boyz def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (c), Enzo Amore & Big Cass, Sheamus & Cesaro
Before the match was officially begin, there was a surprise announcement from The New Day that the match would be a fourth team to be added. The Hardy Boyz received a huge pop from the crowd as their song hits after they make a shocking return after being away since 2009. All the competitors of the match have a number of memorable spots as The Hardy Boyz manage with the win eventually as Matt Hardy immediately ran back up the ladder to down the title belts.
John Cena & Nikki Bella def. The Miz & Maryse via pinfall
Real-life couple Cena and Bella teamed up for the first time in a mixed tag team match in any pay-per-view event which end up Cena proposed in the center of the ring. Throughout the match, there was anything much as The Miz did most of the work as he’s able to play with the crowd. The match ended as Cena and Bellan teamed up for a doulbe five-knuckle shuffle and a double AA, before simultaneously pinning both Miz and Maryse.
Non-Sanctioned Match — Seth Rollins def. Triple H via pinfall
Rollins manage to overcome his right knee injures to gain revenge on Triple H in their non-sanctioned match. It was a solid 25-minute match as it featured plenty of moment between Rollins and Triple H before Rollins eventually pinned Triple H to end the match.
WWE Championship — Randy Orton def. Bray Wyatt (c) via pinfall
After a seven-month build toward Wretlemania, Wyatt’s star-making title reign came to an end as Randy Orton connected on an RKO to pin Wyatt cleanly, handing him yet another loss on a major pay-per-view. Honestly, I really enjoyed this feud a lot as this feud buildup perfectly over the months as Randy’s purpose of joining The Wyatt family get clearer since after the Elimination Chamber.
Universal Championship — Brock Lesnar def. Goldberg (c) via pinfall
As this feud finally come to the end, it’s not a surprised to see that “The Beast” finally earned his revenge on Goldberg after five-month feud build heading into this event. As usual, Brock Lesnar performed Suplexes before finally finished Goldberg with an F5 to claim the Universal Championship title.
