WrestleMania is the big one, allegedly. It's the most promoted pay-per-view, it has longest history, it has a card planned long in advance, and, crucially, it's bought by more people than many of the year's other PPVs put together. Despite this, though, often it isn't WWE's best PPV of the year. And yet, we always expect it to be the best and hold it in hallowed esteem.
Contributing to the WrestleMania mythos is its long buildup; aside from the two prior PPVs (Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber) being considered part of the "Road to WrestleMania," there's also a seven-week gap between the Chamber and Mania—the longest buildup of the year.
How good has the road been and what can we expect tonight?
Let's take a look.
