My 5 takeaways from attending WrestleMania

After attending last night’s WrestleMania 31 at Levi’s Stadium, I have five thoughts I want to share.

1 – It was super sunny. Because the start time of the first match was at 3:00 and being on the West Coast, most of the entire show was in broad daylight. I was in the sun for that entire time.

– Konnor, Viktor, Kane, Big Show, Darren Young, Titus O’Neil, Jack Swagger, The Miz, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fandango, Adam Rose, Zack Ryder, Erick Rowan, Sin Cara, Damien Sandow, Goldust, Mark Henry, Heath Slater, a NXT Superstar TBD, others TBA

And this show gets that treatment now. I predict Damien Sandow will get the push he needs by winning this. I was hoping Adrian Neville would be in it, but it’s Hideo Itami and I was hoping that the NXT guy would win and get a roster push.
