These are always fun.
Why is TLC in here? Miz vs. Ziggler Ladder Match was really good and Ambrose/Styles was just great. Heck, even Corbin and Kalisto had one of the best chairs match in the company's history. Bliss finally beat Becky...
Gee. That show was phenomenal. Nothing SmackDown after brand split should be considered in here.
We joke about 'Sunday Night Raw', but there was literally nothing special about Roadblock (End of the Line). Quintessential non-event.
WrestleMania 32 if only for the booking.
New Day losing, Ambrose getting squashed, Ryder winning, Wyatts not on the card, Zayn vs Owens not having a singles match, Reigns vs HHH sucking.
It was pretty horrible.
WM 32. The IC Title and Women's match aside, it was a chore to get through. Add in the Main Event was meh at best and fucking laborious to get through. For the biggest PPV of the year, the E dropped the ball.
WrestleMania is supposed to be the best ppv WWE could come up with. It shouldn't even hold a candle to these other minor events. Still, 32 was too long to watch and a majority of it downright sucked. We got The Rock playing with a flamethrower and pinning Erick Rowan in a matter of seconds. Stephanie being a cheesy 80s villainess. Lesnar vs Ambrose made a hardcore match boring. Shane was somehow not a human punching bag for Taker. And Trips vs Reigns drowned in boos. NXT Takeover: Dallas is argued to be much better than Mania, and it was held two days prior and with much lesser known talent.
All these other events were really just filler to begin with. Fucking up at WrestleMania is like fucking up the Super Bowl.
Payback for me, don't even remember what happened on it, it was so memorable. At least I remember Mania. Payback was shit.
Roadblock wasn't a bad show. Sure it wasn't a major show, but it had decent enough wrestling. Mania was a big wet fart.
Roadblock was probably worse than Wrestlemania, but Wrestlemania failed far more in living up to standards. For that, it gets the nod.
