Let’s Say Nice Things About... Wrestlemania 2000

In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

A reminder of the rules: only positivity allowed here. No back-handed compliments, and CERTAINLY NO NEGATIVITY. If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself, or take it elsewhere. Negative comments will be deleted and you may be subjected to a ban. Cool? Cool.

Today’s subject: gonna switch it up and talk about a major wrestling show from the past: Wrestlemania 2000. (NOTE: We’re discussing the PPV, not the video game of the same name.)

I’ll start: I get why WWE wanted to get as many people as they could on the show. They wanted to reward their roster after what was then a record-breaking year of ratings, profits, and revenue. If you think about it, the modern-day Wrestlemania was born with this show. Because this ran long (a little over three hours I believe), WWE extended its biggest show of the year to four hours beginning with the all-time classic Wrestlemania X-Seven.

And as a bit of a wrestling history buff, I enjoyed the Wrestlemania All Day Long, which condensed all the previous Wrestlemanias to a half hour each (except for III, which got a full hour). I wish they do it again. I mean, I can see why they wouldn’t, but it would be cool.

Your turn now. Say something nice about Wrestlemania 2000 (the PPV, not the video game).

And if you have a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”, hit me up on Twitter @notoriouseddie. I promise I won’t bite.
