Wrestlemania moments have always been "manufactured". It's a fictional show, scripted. But also, true Wrestlemania moments have ALWAYS been rare. Out of 35 Wrestlemanias, a lot of them have been largely forgettable let's be honest
I think Becky and Kofi's wins will always be iconic though, especially those shots of the New Day celebrating with Kofi's children. Two iconic moments is about what I'd expect from any Wrestlemania, the bar really isn't that high
i can wrap my head around your first point in that wrestlemania moments have always been "manufactured" per se, but the fans have always been the ones to really make them what they are.
my overall point is that i feel they are trying to push everything that happens at wrestlemania into a "moment"
to say that out of 35 Wrestlemanias a lot of them have been largely forgettable? ehhhh, i guess it depends on who you ask?
1) Andre vs Hogan and the slam at WM3 is a pretty big wrestlemania moment.
2) Savage reuniting w/ Elizabeth at WM7 is a very memorable wrestlemania moment.
3) Warriors surprise return at WM8 to save hogan is a very memorable wrestlemania moment.
i guess you can say my above three examples were "manufactured" but at same time they weren't pushed prior or during the event as moments. they are moments that just happened and are etched in the history of Wrestlemania.
Nothing new - they have been pushing these for years.
i believe it. just something i noticed last night as this was the first wrestlemania i watched in it's entirety in a long time.
i'm more of a casual fan these days just to appease my kids lol
i grew up during the golden era so some of it's new to me now!
