  1. Wow either they’re trying to make the pre show just as big or these wrestlers just got the shaft. Alexa should be in the main card and come on the Cruiserweight title with the hottest name in Aries? SMH

  2. Ah well, no big deal. The cruiserweight & women’s championship don’t mean much anyhow, & this confirms it. Any championship belt that means something should never be on pre-show. They should have moved Goldberg & Lesnar on the preshow instead though, that’s gonna be the worst “match” of the night. Or even Undertaker & Reigns. Seriously, Goldberg and Taker should not even be in a wrestling ring with the type of shape both those guys are in.

  3. Since the announcement of the move of the SD women’s match, the hashtag #GiveSDWomenAChance has been trending in the US. Seems most people do not like that this match got shifted, but the Raw women are still on the primary card.

  4. More Garbage decisions from WWE. Why is it the women of Smackdown and Aries vs. Neville don’t deserve to be on the main card?

    Screw WWE and their over bloated Wrestlemanias! How is it Wrestlemania is LONGER than it ever was, but don’t have time for the amount of matches they used to pack into a 2 & half to 3 hour Wrestlemania?

    Garbage.

  5. Vinny will never have Reigns on the pre-show: he’s his Dwaney Boy’s cousin (btw, he will certainely make a 30 minute appearance, go through his 4-move set, talk for 29.30 minutes and collect his 40 million paycheck)…

  7. fkn cnuts, so there’s another big match i’m going to fkn miss unless i sign up for their fkn network. which i won’t so thanks for fkn nothing.

  8. Don’t mean to be an ass.. I get the cruiserweight title isn’t all that important. . But id still rather see Neville and Aries in the main card over Corbin and Ambrose..

  9. couldnt agree more, 205 live and smackdown matches added to the preshow but not a single raw match. not only does raw get an extra hour but more exposure on the grandest stage of them all. Main fault with the brand split is the shows arnt on level pegging. funny as most people still seem to prefer smackdown. Raw needs to drop the extra hour.
