Wrestlemania XXXII Preview: Overall Thoughts

And false hope.

Overall, Wrestlemania is going to be…….interesting. The problems that we’ve been going over for months are still around and the double main event has the potential to be anywhere from a pleasant surprise to an all time mess. This is a show that is being held together by super glue and duct tape at this point and there’s a very real chance that it’s all going to come falling apart at the seams from the moment the show starts. I’m not sure what all we can expect from it though there’s certainly potential for this to be good.

That being said, I don’t think they can pull off last year all over again. Last year was a borderline miracle with WWE pulling off one of the biggest surprises of all time with a great show that looked horrible on paper. I don’t think this one is quite that bad but it certainly could fall apart if they don’t treat things properly.

At the end of the day though, it’s Wrestlemania. There’s going to be something good and memorable (probably New Day’s entrance) and we’re getting Undertaker in the Cell, possibly in his last match. I don’t think we’re going to see the greatest show of all time but that attendance record (which you know is coming down) is going to be something special to see. I’m still excited to go again and I’m going to have a good time no matter what because, no matter how bad it might look, this is Wrestlemania. That makes it a big deal and there’s no way it’s not going to be fun.

    I really want this wrestlemania to be good. I’m doing my best to go into it with a positive attitude. Bad decisions and illogical booking be damned.

    ‘but that attendance record (which you know is coming down) is going to be something special to see.”

    The 84,000? it will be a sight to see.

    Seriously wouldn’t be surprised if the unsold tickets all end up going to plants told to be as loud as possible to try and make stuff like the divas tag and Reigns “controversial” instead of “hated by everyone here since it’s literally the raw after Wrestlemania crowd scaled up”

    In a stadium that big, using plants would be dumb. Sound does not travel that well in gigantic stadiums so even if they used 20,000 plants, it would not make a difference on TV.

    Princess Peach Reply:

    Mic up the section that has the plants and make that what the network hears. You’ll hear the boos since they won’t eclipse them but it’ll sound like it’s more 50-50 rather than 90-10. It’s not that out of the question man.

    Greg Reply:

    Well that’s not exactly possible so they won’t be doing that. You can’t mute a portion of the crowd, doesn’t work like that. They can sort of mute the entire crowd but that’s really it.

    Greg, you silly bastard, Princess Peach is saying that they can have the microphones they already have that get the crowd reactions nearer to the plants so the positive responses can come across more clearly, giving the broadcast the impression that it’s not as one sided as they think.

    You do realise they have a whole bunch of set ups around the ring so if there’s something making too much noise they can switch feeds to the other side right? The same principle applies to a crowd in a place as large as a stadium where certain things need to be at higher/lower levels depending on the circumstances e.g. pyro for an entrance or brawling through the crowd.

    Did you just change your name from princess peach to M?

  4. Mobile and PC mean changing your name between methods of posting while in different locations is part of the fun commented on KB’s Wrestling Reviews:

    This is indeed a disturbing universe.
