WWE and WrestleMania: What Is Needed for a Successful Wrestlemania?
The WWE is a worldwide organization that has many athletes, or "entertainers," as they prefer to be known under their contract.
Some of these "entertainers" have made it as household names, while others are simply known as "that guy."
Whatever the case, every one of these people eventually wants to take part in the greatest pro wrestling spectacle of them all—WrestleMania.
WrestleMania, "the grandest stage of them all," is supposed to have an aura around it that excites the crowd throughout the show.
It's supposed to be the biggest show of the year, but with that title comes a lot of pressure to make the show feel special.
For WrestleMania to be a true spectacle, it needs four key ingredients. They are put together into one thing that makes Wrestlemania "special."
To produce a real spectacle, you obviously need stars.
They must have enough drawing power to captivate the crowd into cheering or booing them, depending on their role as a heel or face.
If a star is a face, he's got to keep the crowd on its feet, cheering every single one of his moves, especially when he makes a comeback.
He has to make the crowd so excited that when he delivers that one final blow known as his finishing move, the crowd will have enough reason to stand and cheer as loud as its voices let them, making the superstar feel as if he is "special."
But if a superstar is a heel, he has to make the crowd hate his guts. He has to make the crowd jeer at his every antic.
He has to make it a worthwhile moment when the face overcomes the odds by overthrowing the tyrannical heel.
The heel has to do the opposite of the face's moves. He has to become a villain.
The role of a heel or a face—and how a person plays it—is what makes a superstar.
But a superstar is only one of the things that makes Wrestlemania a true spectacle.
The arena is what holds the event and the crowd that wants to see the WrestleMania spectacle.
The arena has to hold thousands of fans, and has to be able to support the technical equipment that provides the superstars with a TitanTron and fireworks lighting the sky with fluorescent colors.
The arena has to be worthy of holding a show that is the show for all of professional wrestling.
In the matches, two or more superstars try to create a "WrestleMania moment" on the Grandest Stage of Them All by trying to make the crowd erupt in roars of cheers and boos.
The matches are supposed to be "dream" matches, as superstars who feed off each other very well are made to battle each other face-to-face.
The superstars need to deliver a good match, as they are faced with the task of overcoming their worthy foe.
The superstars have to do their finisher justice to hopefully have a chance at gaining a victory on the big stage.
With counters and technical grapples or high-flying moves everywhere, every match has its high-impact moments where it seems a match can go either way.
The matches make up the card, and it all depends on how they are if a WrestleMania wants to be known as great.
Hype attracts the millions of fans worldwide to watch the show of shows.
The hype is put into the rivalries, as the rivals are made out to be equal and their eventual match can seem like a clash of the titans.
The hype is the reason people tune in.
Whether a certain celebrity is involved or an icon has made his return, people want to see what will happen at the event.
That's what hype is about—making people interested in watching the show.
Any kind of hype helps, as it helps pique people's interest into wanting to see what will happen next.
When the hype helps bring people, it is then up to the show to live up to the hype.
The hype is one of the main factors in making WrestleMania an exciting spectacle.
The aura of WrestleMania is basically what makes it great. It is what makes WrestleMania feel "special."
The aura of the event is felt everywhere throughout the whole event, as it becomes the showcase of the immortals.
The aura is there for the whole night, whether during a championship match or during the match involving the Streak of the Undertaker.
The aura is what captivates the crowd. The aura is everything from the superstars to the arena to the matches to the hype.
The aura is WrestleMania itself.
