As inconsistent as it was, WrestleMania 34 wasn't without its triumphs.

Wrestling fans were united by their love of the red-hot Intercontinental Title opener, Charlotte's awesome scrap with Asuka (streak-related concerns aside), Ronda Rousey's electric in-ring debut, and Daniel Bryan's emotional return.

Heading into the event, this year's Show Of Shows came with genuine "Greatest Of All Time" potential. The card was fantastic, and the build exciting, but 'Mania 34 couldn't meet its astronomical expectations. It went off a cliff several times after the Rousey match.
