- WWE decided to cut the eight-person inter-gender tag match before WrestleMania 29 went live as they wanted to give the top three matches as much time as they wanted.

– The reason WWE had no fireworks open the WrestleMania 29 pay-per-view was due to the light skies and the feeling that the Hurricane Sandy video with Chris Christie would be overpowered by the pyro.

– Several of WWE’s mid-card talents were down because they were not used at last night’s event. In the past WWE always tried to squeeze everyone in.

    Very well said, you are my new buddy!

  • Sam

    The fact there was no pyro GENIUNELY dissapointed me ahead of the rest of the show

    Lesnar vs Triple H could have been shorter IMO. Brock looked like he was wrestling injured or just plain out of gas after a few minutes. But then maybe that’s what happens when you only wrestle 3 or 4 times a year. Does anyone think Lesnar is worth the money?

    I really miss it man. It was so entertaining, I mean come on who does’t love guys jumping off of ladders and all that. I don’t think its PG destroying the business. You have a lot of yes surrounding Vince. Plus the superstars WWE are rehiring are huge guys. Now you’re seeing a lack of high flyers, so if they were to put Money in the Bank back, what high flyers are there to really excite the show. No one in mid card table is as talent as the Gold Standard

    Screw having Cesaro vs Kofi Kingston for the title in a ladder match or even the eight man ladder match.
    They needed time for more important stuff like a Puff Daddy performance a trailer for the Rock’s new movie and a boring predicatable match with a terrible ending for the second year in a row.
    Fans didn’t wait in line camping outside and spend lots of money on tickets for Cesaro or to see the WWE roster be properly used. They did it to see movie trailers and a music performance from a shitty rapper

    Agreed. I really want MIB back next year, its a good chance for others to be on the PPV, showcase their talen and make some cash. Don’t know why they stopped it but it was always the match I looked forward to other than Taker vs ? each year.

    The reason for this, is becomes there was too many one on one matches. in my opinion, they should of been more triple threat matches and more matches where they will be 6 or more superstars i.e money in the bank or at least a battle royal. What i’m confused about is why give so much time to rock and cena when it happened last year? the match last year was better. It takes WWE a whole year to come up with nothing. Vince is out of touch with what the fans want! Don’t be fooled by him having twitter, it’s to shut us fans up so we think he sees our tweet.
