Finally, WrestleMania season has arrived, and this Sunday, we will see WWE's yearly spectacular emanating from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
The build for this year's WrestleMania in my estimation has been superior to the previous two years, and I think this card looks a lot stronger than that which we were given this time last year for WrestleMania.
This WrestleMania has been the subject of some unfounded criticism on this site as of late, and I am warming to the belief that there is no pleasing some wrestling fans.
I have even read in some places that people do not think this WrestleMania will reach the standard of last year's event. That is ridiculous, quite frankly.
Last year's WrestleMania was perhaps one of the worst WWE have ever produced. Going into the event, the matches we were looking forward to were Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon, Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels, CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio, Chris Jericho vs. Edge, Triple H vs. Sheamus and perhaps the Money In the Bank ladder match.
At the event, only three of those matches really delivered. This year, looking at the card I see seven matches which I am looking forward to, and all of those, with the exception of Lawler vs. Cole, should be great wrestling matches.
This year's event has more star power than last year's event as well, we have seen the returns of The Rock, Steve Austin and Trish Stratus. In fairness, we have no Chris Jericho or Batista this year but I think that is well and truly made up for.
The Rock on his own could arguably make this year's WrestleMania better than last year's, I'm just saying...
My message then is simple, don't b*tch and moan about the event before you see it, sure it is not perfect but so far in 2011, WWE has been better than it was in 2010.
Therefore, there is no reason to believe that this year's event will not blow the last two years out of the water.
So, on to the predictions:
