WWE WrestleMania 37 is knocking on the door with some 15 matches have been for the event. But how were the backstories of these featured matches? Are they good enough to be booked for the biggest and grandest event of them all?
WrestleMania is a show where most of the long-running feuds end or we see something brand new with great backstories. But this year is quite not the case. WWE is struggling to build good storylines for WrestleMania matches in recent years but this year has to be the worst of all the recent years.
WWE WrestleMania 37 Booking Review – Good Storylines
First, let us talk about all those well-established storylines. The two World title matches; the WWE title match between Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre is following an average storyline. In a small time, they built it as much as they could. It could have been better for sure, but we can accept it.
The triple threat match for the Universal match title is arguably the best storyline of the entire event. And that is because of one reason only; the introduction of Daniel Bryan in the feud. Roman Reigns vs. Edge could be a nice match but would have been pretty flat from its back. The way they involved Bryan in it, it became much more exciting.
Randy Orton vs. Fiend was not much interesting for anyone until Fastlane when people started asking if this Fiend is Bray Wyatt or someone else. Only this uncertainty made this feud quite interesting, and kudos to the writers who used the situation excellently.
The Intercontinental championship match between Big E and Apollo Crews has been nicely booked as well. Apollo’s gimmick change and his recent performance are outstanding. We all know how good Big E is so we will not talk about him separately. The backstory and the way everything went were pretty good. Another nice booking, we must say.
About other bookings, Seth Rollins vs. Cesaro is following a good storyline. From the very beginning, it has followed a good backstory and it is more exciting because of the storyline that it follows.
The raw creative team tried to Braun Strowman and Shane McMahon’s feud in a good way but things did not go pretty well. The feud is a big downfall of Braun and it has some nonsense booking in the mid. Like, throughout the feud Shane was scared of Braun, he faked an injury to avoid the match and suddenly, he gives Braun the power to choose any stipulation for their WrestleMania match. Things are not quite meaningful, are they?
Overall, these are the only good feuds from this WrestleMania. The rest were not only bad but in most cases, they have no backstories at all. We talked about the other stories too, check it out to get a complete synopsis.
