WWE WrestleMania XXIX is almost here, but WrestleMania season just doesn't feel as big or important as usual.
With a subpar undercard and a build up that has been scattershot outside of the top matches, the WWE seems to be content with pushing this year's WrestleMania as a glorified one-match show.
Long Raws have further made what should be a spirited sprint to New Jersey seem like a marathon. And while WWE may be justified in the long run when the buyrate comes out, perhaps this ride could have been smoother.
Problems with the WrestleMania card have led to the under emphasis of key figures and championships while potentially alienating the WWE fanbase. Is this really the type of show that spectators should be willing to brave sub-40 degree temperatures for?
