7 Things We Will See For The Last Time At WrestleMania 33

6. A 13 Match WrestleMania Card

Andre The Giant Battle Royal WrestleMania 32

As of right now there are 11 matches confirmed for WrestleMania 33 with two major matches yet to be announced in the shape of Triple H vs. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose vs. Baron Corbin. WrestleMania 33 promises to be yet another seven-hour slog for wrestling fans worldwide, an over-bloated sports entertainment smorgasbord that will take up almost one-third of the entire day.

WrestleMania 32 was much the same but these two 'Manias are anomalies in this regard in the modern age. For many years WrestleMania featured just eight or nine matches, most of which were singles bouts, as only the most important happenings were given the biggest stage on which to shine. It is unlikely that WWE will go back to that streamlined form but a happy middle ground must be achieved.

This may be more in hope than in expectation but another gruelling night for all involved will surely open some influential eyes in WWE to the dangers of throwing too much faeces at the WrestleMania wall. The length of the show may not change but the number of matches should, with those that do take place given enough time to breathe and tell a proper story.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read.
