You have to get off on a nice foot. There are a lot of things to criticize about WWE and that has been the case for a very long time now. Their creative direction and match quality may vary by your personal preferences, but there is one thing that they do with very little room for criticism. That would be their video packages, which they did again at a high level over the weekend.

Saturday night saw the first half of WrestleMania 36 and this show was a tricky one. The problem with having no fans in place and having to figure out what is going on tonight is a daunting task and WWE had its work cut out to figure out how to do it. A big part of that is setting the stage in the right way, and as usual, WWE knows exactly what they are doing with this stuff.

This is a great one. Check out how WrestleMania got started:

WWE has released its opening video for WrestleMania 36, which features the same pirate theme that the show had been built around since it was first announced. The video includes a voiceover talking about how a trailer works before moving into a regular hype video for the show, including AC/DC’s For Those About To Rock. The video includes matches that would be taking place on both the first and second nights.

Opinion: This is something that WWE does so well and there is no reason to believe they can’t keep it going. The company has a lot of problems but they know how to do all kinds of things like this. They have the time and the money to put everything together things like this and it has been one of their strengths for such a long time. Their WrestleMania tapes have been incredible and hopefully that continues for a long time to come.
