Wrestlemania 36: Night 2 Review

Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley was a pretty decent opening match. Nothing mind-blowing but a good way to kick off the show.

Aleister Black vs Bobby Lashley was pretty boring.

Otis vs Ziggler was kind of boring as well.

Edge vs Randy Orton had a nice set-up as they moved through the building but too much of the match was exchanging punches. Also, the match was just too long in general. Definitely didn’t need to be 36 minutes but there were a few good spots.

The Street Profits vs Angel Garza and Austin Theory was actually pretty good with some high flying moves.

The 5-way elimination women’s match was quite good but started to go downhill once Naomi got eliminated. Still it managed to pull itself back up a decent amount before finishing.

Bray Wyatt vs John Cena was more of a psychological thriller than an actual match. I guess the story is that Wyatt eliminated the memory of Cena from his mind? Like, Cena never actually fought because it was all in Wyatt’s head? I don’t even know but it was very forward-pushing for a modern day WWE skit.

Drew McIntyre vs Brock Lesnar is probably the worst final match in Wrestlemania history. A few suplexes, a few F5’s, a few C4 kicks, and then it was over.

Overall, a significant step-up from night 1 but still left a lot to be desired. If you were to take the top 9 matches over both nights, you could have had 1 really good night. But instead, we ended up with 2 nights that weren’t quite good on their own.

6/10 – Decent

  1. My only disappointment was the Edge vs Orton match. Biggest set up and potential, also the most boring. Very few big spots in a Last Man Standing Match. Would have been better in the ring.


      1. I’ve come to appreciate the quick storytelling in the wake of all these bloated matches. I get excited for the ten minute Lesnar matches after the 45 minute Orton and Edge stroll down memory lane…
