Degeneration Dex: Wrestlemania 38 Saturday Review!

Welcome to the Degeneration Dex Wrestlemania Night 1 review! I’m going to go ahead and say this entire show was INCREDIBLE! My only gripes are that The New Day vs Sheamus & Ridge Holland match was cut, and Bianca and Becky really should have gone on after Charlotte and Ronda.

The Usos (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs

I had zero expectations for this match, but it was pretty impressive. USOs won and I think that was the best choice, mainly because I don’t like the idea of Nakamura being in the tag division.

Drew McIntyre vs Happy Corbin

I didn’t mind this match, but I couldn’t help but think that McIntyre deserves better. I will say that Madcap is very quickly growing on me. 

The Miz & Logan Paul vs. The Mysterios

Another match that I didn’t care much about, but boy did it deliver! This was arguably Dom’s best match since joining the company. I was also impressed with him well Paul moved in the ring. In the end, Miz did what he does better than anyone else, and that’s stealing the spotlight from everyone else involved. Great match. 

Bianca vs Becky (c)

This was my favorite match of the night. There was so much passion, story, and intensity in this match-up! This had a natural big fight feel to it and both women delivered from bell to bell. I can’t say enough about how incredible this match was from the intros to the in-ring action! Just incredible. (Bianca might be the female Undertaker 2-0 at Mania). 

Seth Rollins vs Cody

This was one of my favorite storylines leading into mania and I was truly impressed with the “surprise” of Cody Rhodes. Cody was rumored to be the opponent for Rollins, but it didn’t stop the momentum of this match! The crowd was fully behind the math and the action was non-stop! Both men delivered and killed it. 

Charlotte (c) vs Ronda 

Ok so I’m going to be honest, I didn’t care about this match at all. I wasn’t crazy about the build-up and I just couldn’t get behind the storyline. The match itself was good, but not anything I’d want to watch again. 

STONE COLD vs Kevin Owens 

In 2022 we got a STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN match and I loved every single second of it! 

Wrestlemania Night 1 was truly incredible and I hope we get the same energy for night 2! What did you guys think? Did they knock it out of the park or did they not move the needle for you?
