WrestleZAYNia XXXIX - 4/1 & 4/2/2023

Agreed with Natty on Night 1's being the best the last two years.  I got Bianca-Sasha as the best match at WM37,  I'd hear an argument for Roman vs. Bryan vs. Edge but Night 2 was only a one match show.  Night 1 had a very good Lashley-McIntyre brawl and a very good Rollins vs. Cesaro match as well and just flowed better.  

WrestleMania 38 isn't even close.  Night 1 had Austin and other cool shit.   Night 2 was a lot of comedy spots and Roman vs. Lesnar for the 467th time.

I’d say at 37 night 2 was better. I’d take Asuka/Rhea and the Triple Threat over any two matches from night one. Then again I find the main event of night 1 overrated as it was 100% clear who was winning and the performers didn’t even try to hide it. At least with night 2 I thought there was a Chan e of Edge or Bryan going over (especially as Roman’s streak wasn’t really a thing yet).

I'm with you, Niners.

Out of curiosity what did you rate Triple H vs Daniel Bryan? As someone that thought that match was the better match of Bryan’s two Mania 30 matches I’m curious. I loved the outcome of the Main, but it was super obvious once Bryan ate the RKO/Batista Bomb. Plus I thought that match went to hell until Bryan returned.

I am going to assume that Johnny Knoxville hasn't watched a lick of WWE in the last year because if not then either he is looking for another match or worked himself into a shoot.

Never thought I would see the day where Kool in the Gang would be the official theme song of anything in 2023 but not complaining.

Fatal Fourway tag match was a trainwreck and I wouldn't be surprised if they called an audible due to guys getting hurt for their spots (that superplex into a powerbomb with a Ricochet crossbody looks especially hurty).

Logan Paul ripped off Shawn Michaels' entrance and didn't get much of a reaction. Ouch. And Seth Rollins wears an outfit that looks like Bret Hart meets The Fifth Element.

Rey vs Dominik was a fine Rey vs. Eddie Guerrero match....could have done without the interference though. Probably Dominik's best match (although he needs to go to NXT and refine/better his abilities though).

Michael Cole seemingly strangely mad during the match at Corey Graves and then apologized afterwards (weird).

Wait we can comment during the shows now?  

Personally I am glad that Cole called Corey out for his bullshit shtick.   If this would have been Corey and that wimpy British guy doing this match it would have been nothing but bad jail jokes for 10 minutes with the other guy barely talking.

Another fantastic WM Night 1.

Rey/Dom was pro wrestling as SHIT. From the recap video to the entrances to the family drama to the action in the ring to stable wars to celebrity bullshit and a happy ending, this one was full of ALL the good shit that works in 1983, 2003 or 2023.

I know most will say 2-3 other matches from this same show were better, but this is my MOTY right now. So, so good.

Great night 1. Can't argue with any of the results.

Personal highlights -

KSI showing up was great. Got heaps of chatter from my casual fan friends. Can he work as well as Logan? A KSI/Paul tag team could be fun.

Rey v Dom my MOTN. The entrances were great. The callbacks were great. You can argue Dom should have won be he will be fine. Loved it.

KO/Sami main event was the right call. Not sure where they go from here, story wise, but it was the moment Sami needed.

So happy for Rhea. Hunter loves her and I hope she reigns for ages. Just wish she got the beat Charlotte and not whichever Wayans brother it was that they got into White Chicks make up for the night.
