It’s official WWE WrestleMania 37 is finally here. A lot of buildups have been done since the last WWE World Heavyweight Championship bout at Summer slam in August 2021. Several months of buzz and speculation have come and gone by. This is the big one.
You have a lot of questions on your mind. Who will win? Will WWE take back their first-ever World Heavyweight Title? And how will this match affect ratings for WWE Raw and Smackdown?
I’m sure you’ve seen it written on many wrestling forums that this is the greatest match to ever happen in professional wrestling. I can’t tell you if it’s better than Hulk Hogan’s epic match with Triple-H at Summer Slam 1996. I was there when it happened. I saw it firsthand. I’ve seen it played out countless times on television.
But let’s get serious. What’s this all about? Why are they playing this match? Is it to simply stir up the wrestling fans to go buy WWE WrestleMania 37 Tickets, WWE Raw Tickets or Smackdown tickets to see Triple H Vs Batista? Or, is this match between two of the company’s biggest stars?
There are many reasons, but let’s start with what it won’t do. Vince McMahon and his son-in-law, Vincent Kincaid, want to keep The Miz as the top star. That’s been the plan since Day One of their move to Miami. He’s the guy who’s the face of the company, after all.
So, what they did was build him up. They made him into a manly, tough man who sells trunks and bodysuits at malls. Then they put him against the man he wants to take down, Triple H. It’s just another angle.
But, it’s not just the angle that matters. Vince and his son-in-law made this match to showcase The Miz – to show people exactly what kind of person he is. It’s a psychological play. If people can understand that The Miz is a huge name in professional wrestling, they can see that he’s a bad, jokey, joke person. But if they can see through his gimmick, then they’ll see a true professional – a guy who sells trunks at a mall and is willing to go out there and give it his all in a wrestling match.
But, as I said earlier, there’s more to WWE WrestleMania 37 than a Miz-Triple H match. This is also the week where the other major event of the year takes place – the Royal Rumble. The WWE has created a buzz by inviting RVD, Randy Orton, Ric Flair, Batista, Shawn Michaels, and Braylon Edwards to compete in the main event. They’ve made the competition extra interesting with a lot of gimmicks thrown in. I’m expecting fireworks.
But, I want to see how these matches play out. I’ve seen most of these WWE events, either on television or online. I’m sure I’ve seen some of the matches get crazy. I saw Triple H takes on Randy Orton for the championship. I saw Batista take on Shawn Michaels.
I think the best matches at WWE WrestleMania 37 will be the eliminations. There will be matches everywhere where two guys are eliminated. Whoever gets the last pin, wins the match. It would be exciting to see who gets the most eliminations. It will be great drama.
I’m sure that Ric Flair will be able to show why he is one of the best wrestlers in the business. He always seems to be in the spotlight. I’m sure that Batista will be looking to get a few paychecks from his recent stint in the hospital. It will be interesting to see how these matches play out. I only have my opinion from watching the WWE programs and matches.
I’m a huge wrestling fan. I was a huge fan when they were in TNA. I was so excited about their new venture into professional wrestling.
