We want to see the legends in the back, we want to see the champion preparing for his title defence, we want to see epic staredowns from superstars past, we want all that or at least I do. Mania 29 felt terribly paced and just flat up strange as a viewing experience because there was nothing to break the show up. It was one massive match and I didn't like it at all. So yeah, I'd say a nice mix of backstage segments or just something in between matches to break them up a bit.
They did that at 27 and it was considered sht.

The starting promo with the Rock was a bit too.. much.

Go back to Wrestlemania X-Seven, to 2000, to see what we mean by promos backstage. X-Seven was brilliant for it in memory, they knew how and when to have just the right kind of promo by the correct wrestler and it heightened the hype for their match. Last year kind of felt like they'd given up by the start of the PPV and that was that, just match after match. There's still a story to be told and that gets best told outside the right.

The end of show video package, definitely. More backstage segments with the big match wrestlers, where they interact with the crowd and not just a pre-taped skit. More video packages to hype the matches. The lighting needs to be right too.

Oh, and no bands or non-wrestling commodities. I didn't stay up until 3am to watch a rapper I couldn't give a flying rats arse about flap around on stage and eat into the valuable match time. Yes, Flo Rida, I'm looking at you sir.

Re: Smaller Things You Want to See @ Mania

- Part of Daniel Bryan's entrance to feature the song "The Final Countdown".
- Like many others said, pyro to begin the show and backstage interviews.
- Rey Mysterio to wear another great superhero/supervillain attire.
- The ramp lined with lanterns during The Wyatt Family's entrance.
- Fandango and Summer Rae dancing and eventually emerging from a huge crowd of dancers.

On the first day I say let there be wrastlin, on the 2nd day power slams, the 3rd day mighty elbow drops, the 4th day chair shots, the 5th day let the children dream, the men scream, and the women cream! the 6th day let there be thunderous applause, and on the 7th day I do not REST! Bloodied and broken, from the mat to the turnbuckle, to the fans in the stands I yell LET THERE BE MORE! Rise to it chump." (my promo)

Re: Smaller Things You Want to See @ Mania

A re-creation of this picture with all the champions after the show:



What's funny is there will be at least 1 less person since there is no Heavyweight Title and there could be a unification of the US-IC belts. So....maybe they should do this picture sooner.

Otherwise:

- America the Beautiful sung
- A brief introduction of all the Hall of Famers
- Daniel Bryan to be lifted up by all the faces after he wins the WWE Title at the end, like this:



I'm thinking all the anti-Authority guys from the last 6-8 months like the Uso's, CM Punk, Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, etc. all come down to the ring. Possibly even Cena.

Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?

Those mini rings that rolled wrestlers to the ring. I always wanted one in my bedroom as a lad.


That has got to be Kane.
