WWE WRESTLEMANIA XL POST SHOW NIGHT 1 (Wrestling Soup 4/7/24)

4/7/2024
WrestleMania Highlights This episode features a comprehensive discussion from the Wrestling Soup team—Anthony Thomas, Joey Numbers, and John Draper—expressing their critiques and commendations for WrestleMania's Night One, notably disappointed with several matches including Becky Lynch vs. Rhea Ripley. They give a special nod to CM Punk, Big E, and Wade Barrett for their pre-show panel chemistry, and hail the Gunther vs. Sammy Zayn match as a standout moment. Additionally, a lighthearted brainstorming session introduces 'Solar Eclipse' as a new tag team concept inspired by wrestler Storm, alongside the whimsical proposal of a branded product, 'Solar Eclipse Wipes.' The podcast ends on a note of appreciation for listeners, teasing the continuation of engaging content and community interaction. 00:00 Kicking Off with Wrestling Soup: WrestleMania Post-Show Night One 00:31 Dissecting WrestleMania: Expectations vs. Reality 01:33 The Cold Reception and Predictable Outcomes 02:24 Pre-Show Highlights: A Rare Recommendation 06:36 Diving into the Matches: Ripley vs. Lynch Disappointment 11:52 Tag Team Chaos: Ladder Match Letdown 18:35 Mysterio Family Drama Falls Flat 23:05 Uso Brothers' Blood Match: A Missed Opportunity 30:46 Women's Tag Team Entrance: Over the Top or Just Right? 33:21 The Crowd's Reaction to the Match 33:42 Analyzing the Match's Performance 35:30 Gunther vs. Sami Zayn: A WrestleMania Highlight 43:13 The Main Event: Expectations vs. Reality 55:16 Reflecting on WrestleMania's Overall Impact 01:07:53 Looking Forward to Night Two and Final Thoughts - Support Wrestling Soup on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/wrestlingsoup SOCIAL CHANNELS ʕ̡̢̡ʘ̅͟͜͡ʘ̲̅ʔ̢̡̢ Twitter: https://twitter.com/WrestlingSoup Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wrestlingsoup/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WrestlingSoup/ Discord Channel: https://discord.gg/wrestlingsoup :shirt: PRO WRESLTING TEES STORE :shirt: /(=✪ x ✪=)\ Become a supporter of this podcast: https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/wrestling-soup--1425249/support.
