WrestleMania 31 has been a polarizing show, and Bryan Rose tackles the event to culminate the wonderful Depths of Wrestlemania Series at VoicesofWrestling.com. Rose runs through the entrances, the matches, the cameos and surprises that made up the grandest WWE event of the year!
WRESTLEMANIA! WWE Wrestlemania 31 has concluded, so Rob & Jeff return to break down all the results, surprises, cameos, and more on this special, live episode of Shake Them Ropes. We’ll talk the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, the debut in the ring of a UFC Champion, the WCW vs WWE battle, and much more. It’s a fun show, so we hope you enjoy!
This was looking like a lackluster show after the first three matches, especially when the promoted main event went on third and disappointed. Mercury Rising 2015 is why you have to sit through the whole movie. The rest of the card bordered on good to great with a match I’m sure will get Match of the Year votes in Thatcher vs. Hero. All in all, a good show that you should go out of your way to watch.
Jason Mann and Josh Hachat discuss The Rock v. Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 17, the mixed feelings we have about it despite its greatness, how Austin’s heel turn was a watershed moment for WWE, whether Vince McMahon should have been involved, and where the match ranks among the all-time classics.
Rob McCarron and Jeff Hawkins return with a special WWE Wrestlemania Weekend update podcast, as Jeff tells us about his live experience from NXT San Jose. We’ll talk Hideo Itami finally busting out the GTS, Bayley in tag action, the amazing Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens verbal battle, and much more. Plus, an update on Ring of Honor’s event and last minute predictions for Wrestlemania 31.
Remind me to never review a Kaiju Big Battel show again. If you’re not right of mind, go enjoy a show once in your life…its a huge self-esteem booster and you can cross it off your bucket list. Unfortunately, I could never recommend actually ordering an iPPV though.
Many, including myself, thought EVOLVE 40 would be a throwaway show. Well, we were wrong! This was a tremendous show that served as a love letter to technical wrestling. Timothy Thatcher vs Tommy End and Chris Hero vs Biff Busick are two of the best wrestling matches I have seen all year. Go out and buy the VOD the second it is released, as this is show is that damn good.
As part of Voices of Wrestling’s WrestleMania coverage, we present to you the much-requested archives of my wrestling retrospective podcast, Wrestlespective. This is an archive of past Wrestlespective episodes covering WrestleMania main events 21 through 29.
Traditionally a Dragon Gate USA-branded event, Mercury Rising 2015 appears to be the final death blow to the DGUSA brand. Not only has one of their pillar events been rebranded under the WWNLive window, but more importantly, DGUSA champion Johnny Gargano and Evolve champion Drew Galloway will unify the two WWNLive titles in the main event.
