The WWE Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live shows in the aftermath of WrestleMania are always fascinating, and this year is no exception. The WrestleMania 33 results suggested that we had seen something of a changing of the guard. Roman Reigns vs. The Undertaker saw a victory for Reigns, and The Undertaker announced his retirement by leaving his hat, coat, and gloves, in the ring as he departed the arena. SmackDown star AJ Styles, defeated Shane McMahon and then extend the hand of friendship to McMahon, seemingly bring their WrestleMania 33 feud to an end.
Roman Reigns and AJ Styles are two of the WWE networks most important assets. Reigns is hardly the WWE’s most popular superstar. The “Big Dog” is booed every time he enters the ring, and logic would dictate that, his beating The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, effectively retiring the Deadman, will do little to boost his popularity. Reigns has been pushed as the face of Monday Night Raw for some time. Where Reigns has now been a WWE wrestling star for over five-years, AJ Styles is a relative newcomer to the WWE network.

The Undertaker is quite simply the biggest name of them all when it comes to the WWE, and to professional wrestling in general. The fact that almost all the reporting, on last night’s WrestleMania 33, is about The Undertaker’s retirement, speaks volumes about The Deadman’s popularity. Of course, many in the WWE universe will lament The Undertaker’s retirement. The “Taker of Souls” has been one of the WWE’s top stars for almost three-decades. As reported earlier on the Inquisitr, with time running out on the 52-year-old Undertaker’s career, it was perhaps inevitable, and appropriate that he should take his final bow at WrestleMania.

Roman Reigns is the man the WWE universe loves to hate. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, last night over 75,000 fans at Orlando’s Citrus Bowl and a worldwide TV audience saw Reigns defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33. In doing so, Reigns sent The Undertaker to only his second defeat at the WWE’s “Show of Shows.” By doing so, Reigns ensured that The Undertaker ended his career with a defeat. Of course, the WWE universe would love to have seen The Undertaker end his career by bringing the “Big Dog” to heel, but the WWE has other plans.

WWE WrestleMania 33 will live long in the memory as The Undertaker retires after loss to Roman Reigns. As recently predicted in the Inquisitr, WrestleMania 33 had the look of “out with the old, in with the new.” The card was packed with matches between active WWE superstars and those who are in the twilight of their careers. All those matches went in the manner predicted, with the exception of The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns. Let’s face it, The Undertaker is a WrestleMania legend, The Phenom dominated the event for over 20 years, but all good things must come to an end.

Happy Birthday to The Undertaker. Mark William Calaway, better known by his ring name The Undertaker, turned 52-years-old on March 24.

The Undertaker is synonymous with WrestleMania, his 21-year winning streak at wrestling’s premier event is unlikely to be surpassed, but sadly, WrestleMania 33 may prove to be the last time we see the Taker in the WrestleMania ring.

It seems that Braun Strowman is at the height of his popularity right now. The past year has seen Strowman’s stock rise on Monday Night Raw. In fact, Strowman’s antics were the height of entertainment, during some pretty dull offerings, on the Raw side of the WWE split. Strowman’s height, strength, and size give him a clear advantage over many competitors. Strowman’s height is billed as 6ft. 8in., and he weighs in at over 380lbs. Let’s face it, they don’t come much bigger than Braun Strowman.

WrestleMania 33 could well prove to be The Undertaker’s swan song. In the wake of WWE Fastlane 2017, we are seeing the WrestleMania rumor mill go into overdrive. As previously reported in the Inquisitr, the official WWE WrestleMania 33 poster promotes a host of occasional performers, whilst those superstars who perform week in and week out are relegated to the margins. This seems to indicate that the WWE network continues to need the likes of The Undertaker and Goldberg to sell tickets and PPV passes. The fact that Roman Reigns was the only current star to feature prominently on the WrestleMania 33 poster tells its own story.
