    The Smark Henry Pay-Per-Review: WrestleMania 37

    If we're to judge WrestleMania 37 by how nice it feels to have a crowd watching a main roster pay-per-view again, then the event passes with flying colors. The crowd wasn't as electric as WrestleManias past, but it was a happy feeling.

    That said, WrestleMania 37 was truly a tale of two nights. The first night is the triumphant comeback after a year of empty arenas, delivering all the feel-good moments one could ask from that particular card. Victories by key stars such as Bianca Belair, Bobby Lashley, and Cesaro served as the welcome-back moment for the fans, who needed something positive to latch on to. No problems there.

    After the fans have been primed, the second night delivers the story beats it has to—well, almost all of them. It wasn't all terrible by any stretch of the imagination, save for Randy Orton going over the Fiend, but it's safe to say that the night was mostly just there, and only a few spectacles lived up to their hype.

    Had this been one six-hour night, the emotional highs would have barely carried the evening to something passable. The splitting into two nights makes it a little easier to compartmentalize, and more importantly, to digest. While some people would prefer the epicness and grandeur of a long evening, a dragging runtime would have turned what was just okay to fat you'd have wanted to see trimmed. Two nights allowed everyone to stand on their own merits.

    Do I want to see more two-night events? Honestly, yes. If you're going to keep the main roster this size, and give everyone a spot on the card, you might as well turn the event into a wrestling festival. That's a real WrestleMania worthy of the name.

    A main event worthy of the spot. Both main events are actually pretty good and you should both watch them, but the triple threat is, as always, a master class. It's not the feel-good moment you'd be sent home with, but if you're worried about whether WWE could be committed to making stars, it's a promising look into the future. If there's one person you don't really compromise on until the right time, it's Roman Reigns.
