Let’s Say Nice Things About... Wrestlemania 33’s Women’s Matches

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.

We’re focusing on Wrestlemania 33 this week. Today’s subject: the women’s matches at Wrestlemania.

NOTE: Obviously, this means the RAW women’s title elimination match and the Smackdown women’s title bout with Alexa Bliss versus all available bodies.

Look, I get there’s a lot of handwringing about these two bouts (i.e. no singles match, Smackdown women on the preshow Smackdown women formerly on the preshow, but might get very little time on the main show), but here are two big positives: both matches will get plenty of time (hopefully), and God willing, neither of them will be in a dead spot (definitely hopefully). These two things wouldn’t have been the case as recently as two years ago.

Even though their so-called Women’s Revolution has made strides, there’s still a long road to go. But this is progress, and sometimes that’s all you can ask of stubborn corporations.

Besides, the women stole the show last year. Kinda makes you wonder if they can do it two years in a row, right?

Your turn. Say something nice about the women’s bouts at Wrestlemania.

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.
