Tonight Is Our Night

The only line I can remember stealing from Tony Schiavone.

Tonight is our night.

As wrestling fans we get a lot of flack from people over how stupid wrestling is or people constantly reminding us that it’s fake (you know, because everything else on TV is TOTALLY REAL right?) or using the most over the top stereotypes when talking about wrestling. Well tonight is the night where wrestling fans get to have it be all about us.

Tonight 80,000 people will pack the Super Dome in New Orleans and watch the greatest wrestling show in the world. We’ll see action, drama, comedy, romance, and above all else, athleticism at its finest. From the swamp preacher against the All-American boy to the undead former zombie against the former UFC Champion to the corporate killer against the bearded wonder to the fourteen Divas match, tonight is a mix of so many different characters and ideas coming together for one event.

We wait all year for this show and have to endure a lot of things, from Battleground to people getting squashed to bad “comedy” segments to Santino and Emma going on dates. However tonight is what makes it all worthwhile. There’s nothing like Wrestlemania and you can’t really describe why it feels so special.

The show has been running for thirty years, which is longer than a lot of fans have been alive. It’s the biggest show in wrestling and one of the biggest in all of entertainment. Back in 1985 it was a media sensation and drew a huge crowd as the in thing to do. Over the years it evolved into what you see today: the greatest spectacle in wrestling and something people from from thousands of miles away to see.

I’m lucky enough to go to the show tonight and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited. It’s a special feeling that you get when you wake up and realize it’s Wrestlemania Sunday. I don’t feel like this for the Super Bowl, my birthday or even Christmas. This is the biggest day of our year and absolutely nothing tops it. When you’re watching the show tonight, stop looking at it so critically and just soak it all in for a change. You’ll have a better time and maybe even remember why you love this crazy world that wrestling has created.

    The first paragraph and the last two sentences gave me goosebumps. That sounded like a pre-game speech. That was awesome man. Have a blast KB.

    Can’t wait! Apart from the pointless Divas match it’s a solid card and the build up to the 3 big matches has been awesome. Prayong that the WWE Network doesn’t crash!

  6. Great stuff.

    Enjoy Wrestlemania. I have two Wrestlemania trips under my belt, and I can guarantee you it’s something you’ll never forget.
