Kickoff Show: Tag Team Title Match
Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs. The New Day vs. The Usos vs. Los Matadores
I’m expecting: Cesaro and Kidd retain in what is essentially a live-action highlight reel. Jey Uso is protected, but still takes some dive/high spot that people with serious injuries should avoid. The smart mark WrestleMania crowd boos Los Matadores and The New Day, and makes Cesaro and Kidd the babyfaces.
So, I pretty much nailed this one. Jey Uso disappeared approximately three seconds after the opening bell, and we immediately went into straight-up clusterkerfluffle mode. Everyone busted out something special, including Xavier Woods, Natalya, Naomi, and El Torito at ringside.
This was far from perfect, especially since the announcers seemed to have a hard time keeping track of what was going on. But it was still a fun, action-packed way to start the show, and a good defense of the titles for Cesaro and Kidd.
