Live Updates

Greetings WWE fans and sports entertainment connoisseurs. From marks to first time viewers, I want to thank all of you for stopping by this page for WrestleMania. Get ready for fun this evening.

The live stream will run from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. EST.

  • More than 70,000 guests will be on hand from the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida this evening for WrestleMania 33.

Shawn Michaels is sticking to the script for the preshow. Nice work Shawn.

So far, a lot of promotional coverage has streamed. They are heavily promoting the Orton and Wyatt fight early on. I’m more interested in the Shane McMahon and AJ Styles fight.

The company did do a good job of building heat between Orton and Wyatt. I’ve just rarely seen these two performers put on a notable match.

I will take it a step deeper. It is my point of view that WWE is choosing to go with the Orton and Wyatt coverage to avoid the conflict between AJ and Shawn Michaels. For an outside fan, you might have missed Michaels turning down a match with AJ Styles. Shawn noted that if it were 10 years ago, he would be more interested in the match. My point of view is that Shawn, like many people in the WWE company, avoid indie stars that have made their name without WWE. It could be that Michaels is too old, but if he can train, he can hang. You still got it Shawn.

They are covering the AJ & Shane match now, but I am not seeing any footage giving this match additional depth.

I’m not interested in hearing more promotional coverage for Triple H. If Paul wants a big match, (and what is best for business) he should fight Shane one-on-one, and lose in a buried alive match. This will mark the symbolism of Triple H burring performers for the last two decades. Give Shane the control for Raw and Smackdown for one year, and let’s compare ratings. If he doesn’t pull weight, bring Triple H back for another match with Shane. Have it go two out of three with the last match at WrestleMania 35.

  • The live stream will be available to watch following the event.
  • Peter Rosenberg reports that over 60 countries and residents in all 50 states are in attendance.

The first matchup of WrestleMania 33 is about to get underway between  and . These two Cruiserweights showcase excellent ground work with submissions, as well as the ability to work high risk moves from above.

My prediction is that  Austin Aries wins this match. They deserve more than 10-20 minutes, but they are making the most of their time.
