What Happens After the WWE WrestleMania 30?

It’s Monday evening on Raw and like most of you, I am still dealing with a WrestleMania hangover from what I just saw. Whether good or bad, my attempt to process everything in four hours of wrestling will require point and counterpoint.

And I pray to the WWE gods and anyone who is listening, that this is truly the WWE event of the ages, the one we talk about for decades and the reason why wrestling is so great. But like most of you, the IWC and the WWE Universe, I sure like in pay-per-views of the past, I will be sorely disappointed. The chances of the WWE hitting on all cylinders for one night of 240 continual minutes of wrestling entertainment is well – something we saw in WrestleMania III or another cosmos. It just does not happen today.

I am sure the Mark Maddens and Dave Meltzers and Bill Apters of the world are sharpening their typing skills to report on a dull and less eventful WrestleMania. I am a little more hopeful, but not enough to stand alone and make bold predictions, hope for a John Cena heel turn and hope against hope someone like Antonio Cesaro or Dolph Ziggler wins the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. I could not get that lucky in one night – like going to the prom with Valerie Bertinelli and leaving with Farah Faucett. If you are too young, look it up!

WrestleMania 30 will tell us a lot about how the remainder of the 2014 calendar will end. How Extreme Rules will be defined and how SummerSlam must have a “WrestleMania” feel to it. Fans want action, not just words, and a CM Punk “invasion” or return to the company may be wasted because the company may not be able to properly commit the right “juice” to it, making him the second most important performer in the WWE.

Yes! Yes! Yes! The movement continues to gain steam.

Moments like these are the ones I live for as a writer and the reason I am thankful for the last 30 days we have talked about wrestling – its memories and how the WWE has made this event one of the best entertainment events of all time. For me, this is the Super Bowl and Daytona 500 all rolled into one. It is truly an honor to share my views with you and to remember the past and the present and watch it all culminate in New Orleans.

I have been to the Crescent City three times, but never for an event like this. I think of the greats and favorites of mine like Arn Anderson, Sting, Barry Windham, Owen Hart and Harley Race – those where were good enough, tough enough and strong enough – but for one reason or another – never headlined an event like this. Wrestlers like Windham, Anderson, Race and Hart could have carried this company on its back, much in the same way as the guy who bleeds yellow and red – but they would not have been given the chance.

If the WWE or WWF could not thrive with someone like Roddy Piper or Paul Orndorff leading the pack, how could we have expected Vince McMahon to allow those greats to run the show?

I am really looking forward to Sunday night, the pageantry and the pomp and circumstance. But I wonder what happens on Monday night?

In the end, what happens on Sunday night isn’t nearly as important as what happens on Monday night. Makes you think in the end, Sunday night is more about taking a chance – one we all know we have to do to make sure our fix is gotten. And a new one is started.

Welcome to the power of WrestleMania.
