It’s the biggest WrestleMania of all-time with one of the most depleted rosters in recent memory. Injuries to top talent has left WWE in a quandary, but they’ve pushed forward with their plans questionable booking and all – it’s WrestleMania 32…
Well, it’s that special time of year. A time when wrestling fans – both current and lapsed – come together and celebrate this bizarre past time we call Professional Wrestling Sports Entertainment. Some might say that the Nxt Takeover: Dallas card is more impressive (and they’re right), but there’s something special about WrestleMania that you just can’t deny. I saw a small photo of the stage being built yesterday and my excitement grew – just a small photo!
