Young superstars shine at the grandest stage of them all

WWE's biggest event of the year took place this past Sunday, and the show was definitely a large improvement compared to the last few. While many of the matches might have been predictable in people's eyes, they all delivered in one way or another. Every superstar fighting on the WrestleMania card deserved to be there, and didn't let the opportunity of a lifetime go to waste. This goes especially for the younger superstars that were fighting at the big event for the first time.

Fans, including myself, have been complaining about the fact that WWE hasn't been building up new wrestlers and instead has depended on its part-timers such as the Undertaker and the Rock. Don't get me wrong, all of those wrestlers are great as the Undertaker vs. CM Punk was easily match of the night, and the Rock delivered despite losing the WWE Championship against John Cena. Look at some of the past four or five WrestleMania's and you won't find too many new superstars on the card, whereas this year's featured six. Giving the new guys a chance at WrestleMania is a great way for them to make an immediate impact and get recognition in front of a large audience.

I was lucky enough to have a seat in the building as World Wrestling Entertainment made its triumphant return to the Bangor Auditorium on March 4. While I freely admit that I'm not a huge fan of professional wrestling, there's no mistaking the very real energy of the moment when it all unfolds in front of you live and in person.

This was a big show; even a relative neophyte such as I could recognize some of these names. John Cena. Chris Jericho. Kane. WWE Champion CM Punk. These are some of the brightest stars in the WWE galaxy and they were right here in Bangor.

The night's matches all had their winners and losers, but the particulars didn't really matter. It's all about experiencing the spectacle, and even if you aren't a follower of wrestling, you can't help but be swept up in the unapologetic passion of the true fanatics.
