Professional wrestling is inherently silly as two people pretend to fight in their underwear while showcasing unfathomable feats of physical prowess.
It’s the absolute best.
With that in mind, this year’s WrestleMania will see a deranged man who lives in a house with a rabbit, a witch, a buzzard and a pig boy invite the mighty JOHN CENA round for tea in the form of a Firefly Funhouse match. Nobody knows what this stipulation entails, and that’s where the intrigue lays.
Imagine Noel’s House Party with plentiful fights, blood and violence; Dick and Dom’s bungalow with the potential for an actual murder to be seen. ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt v John Cena will have something for everybody watching – good, bad, or absolutely bats**t crazy.

Despite the high-stakes title bouts, outlandish spectaculars, and a Boneyard Match (whatever that is), I’m most looking forward to Seth Rollins v Kevin Owens.
This is partly because I’m a boring traditionalist, and value good, solid action over the wackier side of wrestling. But make no mistake about it – this match will be anything but tedious.
Expect to see two elite-level athletes backed by a solid storyline. Rollins has enjoyed a litany of WrestleMania triumphs, defeating the likes of Triple H and Brock Lesnar. Owens is in search of his first real moment, and may well find it here.
