I was there, and when you're at Wrestlemania in person, it's easy to lose yourself in all the excitement. Still, I thought it was a good show from top to bottom, and if I'm going with a grade, Wrestlemania 33 gets a B from me.

The setup for the stage was amazing and breathtaking, probably the best I've seen in years. Camping World Stadium is next door to Disney World, Universal Studios, and Islands Of Adventure, and other theme parks, so I guess they were going for a theme park theme, with the roller coaster, and you could say the globe resembles the Universal Studios globe.

I was surprised to see Neville retain, but Aries VS Neville was a strong match, and a top contender for the best match on the card.

I'm not all that surprised Mojo won the ATGM Battle Royal. After the video of Gronkowski chopping Mojo popped up, you had to know he was the front-runner to win. I just get the feeling it's another case of Vince wanting mainstream appeal, but the crowd was into Gronk, and his reaction, when he climbed over the barricade, and when he finally stepped in the ring proves it.

Corbin VS Ambrose was a solid match, but I was a little surprised Ambrose retained.

Shane VS AJ was an excellent opening match to get the crowd pumped up for the main card.

There was no doubt Owens was walking away with the US Championship, and a win over Jericho doesn't have the same impact anymore, but he did what he does best after putting Owens over on a big stage.

The Fatal 4 Way delivered, and I was honestly shocked Bayley retained, because I was sure they were dead set on having Charlotte win the title again. Charlotte doesn't need the Raw Women's Championship anytime soon, and it's a good sign they're really trying to establish Bayley as one of the top stars on Raw. You can't go back and forth between Sasha and Charlotte forever, Nia is not ready yet, and it's too soon for Emma.

The Fatal 4 Way for the tag title was a fun match, with some good jaw-dropping spots, and the pop for The Hardy Boyz return was something to remember, easily one of the more memorable and loudest return pops you'll ever hear, and the crowd went absolutely nuts, when the music hit.

Nikki Bella and Cena VS Miz and Maryse was about what I excepted. A harmless match, and Cena proposing to Nikki was a nice little moment. I could hear prenup chants from my section, but overall, the crowd didn't completely shit on Cena wanting to give Nikki something special.

You could see Stephaine taking the bump through the table coming from a mile away, and Triple H and Seth Rollins started out slow, but the match turned into a good brawl. Also, the sequences, where Rollins and Triple H were fighting each other to see, who could hit the Pedigree first really worked.

Orton defeating Bray was a strange choice, and the ending was kind of anticlimactic. Although, it's not a big surprise, when you consider the direction of the storyline, and Bray was supposed to be the bad guy here. Bray playing mind games fits with his character, and the images with the insects covering the ring was a bizarre visual in person.

I was surprised how good Lesnar VS Goldberg was. The match told a good story with Goldberg wanting to stick with what worked at Survivor Series, throwing all the heavy artillery at Lesnar out of the gate, and not giving Lesnar a chance to get his hands on him. I honestly don't expect too much from Lesnar's reign as world champion, and WWE is really not trying to hide the long road to Lesnar VS Reigns, and Reigns being the one to dethrone Lesnar after a dominant title reign.

The Six-Pack challenge for the Smackdown Women's Championship served its purpose: a chance to give the crowd a breather before the main event, and after three featured matches back to back. Naomi winning the title in her hometown was a given, but Naomi winning in her hometown and coming back after being forced to vacate the title for a feel good moment worked.

Reigns VS Taker had some good "young lion vs the old lion" storytelling, with a battered and broken Taker taking one last stand to protect his yard. The Tombstone botch was noticeable, but for me, it was an emotional match with a sad ending, with Reigns having to put Taker out of his misery once and for all.

Taker getting the main event slot and the big sendoff was well-deserved. WWE started playing up Taker's career winding down, and Taker not being what he used to be at Wrestlemania 27, but looking around at the crowd, the standing ovation, and the "Thank you Taker" chants is something I'll never forget.

Stephanie looked great, and I loved WWE playing up the seriousness of The Destroyer, with Triple H needing a police escort to the ring. But outside of Triple H and Sasha Banks, I can't think of too many entrances that stood out as something special.

I went to a concession stand to get some water during the Pitbull/Flo Rida performance. The length of the show did feel tiresome at times, but it's not as bad as Wrestlemania 32, because the overall match quality was much better.

Easily better than Wrestlemania 32.

No Match Of The Year candidates. I thought that it could be one at least. The whole card consisted of some good matches, some average and some below average matches. The set was admittedly too huge. The Undertaker's retirement made it much more important. Cena's proposal was expected but I'm happy that the crowd respected Cena enough to not boo that particular segment.

Just three words, Thank You Undertaker.
