The Ross Report Recap w/ Dave Meltzer – WrestleMania 33 Analysis, Undertaker’s Retirement, Kurt Angle’s Role Moving Forward, More!
Ross opens today’s show by thanking his fans for making WrestleMania week enjoyable for him. He had great crowds at his shows, and was happy to sign a new 2-year deal with WWE. He has a handful of guaranteed dates with the company, and he’d be happy to be a part of more content for the company if they come calling. He informs that he will continue to work for NJPW, calling their shows for AXS TV.
Ross welcomes Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer to the show.
Ross says that Sunday was a marathon day for him. After hosting one of his shows in the afternoon he made his was to the arena and waited around backstage for hours before it was his time to shine in the main event of the evening. Meltzer agrees, and says that the show was an endurance contest.
Apart from the show’s length, he thought that WrestleMania had a lot of very cool moments including the return of The Hardys and Cena’s proposal. Unfortunately, the length of the show really crippled it in Meltzer’s opinion and even though the majority of the show’s content was good, it just felt like you couldn’t keep up with it as a fan.
He says that WrestleMania was a ‘good’ show. If the length of the show was reduced to even 5 and 1/2 hours – which still would have been too long – he might have called it a ‘great’ show.
