Every year as we head into the show of shows there is always one looming question. “What match is gonna steal the show?” With the advent of the WWE Network and pre-shows, the card grows longer. Some people may find it a hassle to watch a wrestling program for six hours, but I welcome it. The more wrestling on the grandest stage of them all the better. Something that has been missing recently have been the marquee matches delivering and becoming the most memorable matches of all time. The last time I personally remember thinking that of a match was the “End of an Era” match with HHH and The Undertaker.
Too often I feel people expect too much out of the Main Event title matches. It’s not fair to sell the undercard short of their talent. This year we’re getting Brock and Goldberg in the main event. We know what to expect from that and it’s not exactly “show stealer” material. It also goes far beyond looking at the usual suspects. Great matches often spawn from pairings you’d least expect, and that’s the magic of Wrestlemania. Sometimes, though, it may just be my misguided optimism.
It’s time to get excited about Wrestlemania; here are the five must see matches at Wrestlemania 33.
