WZ Flashback: WrestleMania 31 Results – The New Era Begins


In the spirit of the holidays, I’ve decided to do a flashback PPV series, where I’ll be doing the play by play of the following four PPV’s (Money in the Bank 2011, WrestleMania’s 4 and 31 and Royal Rumble 1998) as if it was today. Your guys support for these play by play pieces has meant alot to me and the entire WrestleZone crew. Hope you guys and girls have an amazing Christmas and New Year.

This particular WrestleMania means alot to me because this was the very first WrestleMania I got to cover as part of the media. Big shoutouts to Joe Villa and Adam Hopkins from WWE PR for making this dream a reality.
