WrestleMania weekend is finally here, and we couldn’t be more excited. We know, we’ve said a lot of mean things about WWE over the past year, but that’s only because we care so much about wrestling that we want it to be even better than it is. When you get right down to it, we’re always going to be excited about WrestleMania, because it’s possibly the most important weekend on the professional wrestling calendar. Over the next few days, careers will be made, legacies cemented, and there will be a whole heck of a lot of great wrestling. This weekend right here, this is what we live for. But just in case you needed more proof, we thought we’d get a little specific about what we’re looking forward to for WrestleMania weekend.
15. It May Be Cliche, But This Is Our Super Bowl
Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat. For all that wrestling fans complain about WWE (and we’re just as guilty of it as the rest of you), if you can’t get excited for some aspect of WrestleMania weekend, you might need to find another hobby. Even if you think WrestleMania itself is going to be a giant four-hour long wet fart with no redeeming qualities, there is so much wrestling content out there this weekend that you’d have to actually try not to find something to like. There’s an NXT TakeOver event on Friday night, the Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday night, and if you’re someone who doesn’t particularly like WWE at all, there are roughly fifty different independent promotions all running shows as alternatives to the mainstream product. This is the one weekend a year that pro wrestling fans should live for, even if it’s just because when you see tens of thousands of fans jammed into Texas Stadium and know that millions are watching on Pay Per View and the WWE Network, you know that there are a lot more of us than anyone gives us credit for. Wrestling might not be “cool”, but it’s what we like, and there is no shame in that. Own your fandom. Wear a wrestling shirt this weekend (we wore one to work, because our job is awesome). Have some friends over for a party, even if they don’t care about what’s on the TV. Have fun with it, is what we’re saying. The rest of the world can have the other 51, this weekend belongs to us.
