A very good video behind-the-scenes at WrestleMania 34

Videos like this are always interesting because WWE does a great job of both bringing across the enormity of the event itself — it’s freaking WrestleMania, after all — while also giving you a peek at the private torture of the performers as they prepare to confront that enormity. This is a group of individuals separated from some 60,000+ rabid fans by a curtain.

Really, what they’re separated from is expectation, left to deal with the intense pressure of bringing their very best on the brightest stage, and the reality of the consequences should they fail.

The closing shot here is really special:

This is what makes pro wrestling special. Seeing this larger than life character, who we know is just a man, confront that enormity.

And conquer it.
