– Welcome to another retro report, this time in preparation for/celebration of WrestleMania 29. Guess how I picked this one to review? It was either WrestleMania 2, or WrestleMania 9.

Best: Here To Sing ‘America The Beautiful,’ The Great, RAY CHAAAAAALL
I miss the days when actual musical legends would get brought in to sing National Anthems and stuff for wrestling. In the early days of WrestleMania you had Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles, two of the shoot most important people in modern music history, and they’d get to do these full, impassioned, beautiful renditions of songs. Now you just get whoever has an album coming out (John Legend, I’m looking in YOUR direction), and that’s only if they don’t decide to just give it to Lilian again. Lilian is fine, don’t get me wrong, but she is not Ray f**king Chaaall.
