Chavo makes me so sad, having Eddie pass in his arms and being maye the last person to talk to Chris, that is some heavy stuff. I liked that these are his friends and family and they are not immediately demonizing Benoit. It is still so surreal and heartbreaking that all of them (Eddie, Chris, Nancy and Daniel) passed under the circumstances they did.
    people should watch it. it's an important part of wrestling history and a good way to get just how this tragedy happened. i did get emotional from it since i too was a fan of both guys

    i didn't know that kevin and nancy's marriage was that bad at that point. learn something new every day.

    On a somewhat less depressing note, I watched the Will Ospreay vs. Bea Priestley match from Monday, and I highly recommend it (it's up on YouTube now). It was really good.

    HHH must be more receptive to talents ideas than Vince.

    17 and 19 are neck-and-neck to me for the best.

    Personally I find 30 to be a tad overrated. It's far from a bad show, but it's basically a two match show telling the same story (HHH/Bryan and the Triple Threat). It's kind of like WM10 with Hart only both matches were good unlike WM10 where only the Bret/Owen one was good (although luckily it had that Ladder match to make up for it elsewhere on the card). Other than the two Bryan matches, 30 doesn't have much going for it other than the streak ending and, let's be honest, that's only memorable for the ending as the match itself wasn't anything spectacular.

    Personally I'd put 31 above it. The IC Ladder match, Orton/Rollins, Cena/Russev and they called a great audible on the main event that actually turned out to be halfway decent before Rollins got involved and made it better.

    I was actually at Wrestlemania 31, so that one probably is my absolute favorite. But I'm always hesitant to say it's the best because it's sort of hard to be objective about it. When you're actually there everything just seems so much cooler. But doing my best to separate the fanboy feelings from actually being there, I would agree Wrestlemania 31 is perhaps a bit underrated.

    I think people at the times sort of looked down on it for a variety of reasons... Daniel Bryan didn't win the Rumble and make it to the main event, which at the time soured people on it (in hindsight that would probably be justified since Bryan would take time off a month later). And many didn't like the Brock/Roman main event even though it turned out pretty cool. Also, I think many disagreed with Sting losing (which is entirely understandable).

    31 was definately solid all around though. I would agree top to bottom 31 was probably better than 30, though again it's tough for me to be completely objective on the matter. But both were very good IMO.

    17 and 19 are my personal favorite manias. 30 while not a bad show is more about the moments. Bryan winning the belt and Taker's streak ending are the biggest takeaways. Nothing else really stood out.

    Seth's promo was great.

    I'm guessing that Rey and/or Humberto can't make it to Mania, hence the change. Well the tag title match sounds cool as well.

    Aleister needs to get something of substance to do soon, he's been beating jobbers enough.

    Becky ambushing Shayna, awesome. This match really should be a No-DQ, Street Fight, etc match. That'd make sense at this point. Becky really needs to win this. She's been carrying this feud and Shayna has zero momentum. She's not ready to be champion yet.

    Don't remind me lf Charlotte beating Asuka. Asuka tapping in seconds to a weakened Figure-8 despite not even having her legs worked over beforehand, still a terrible finish to that match.

    Don't remind
