The door swung open, I turn with the tide looking through his eyes as I live blog this pro wrestling show here for you folks.

The show opens with a recap of Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns brawling in Madison Square Garden over the weekend.

Kevin Owens enters, joined shortly after by Kevin Owens.

They take the mic, Seth talks about winning the tag titles, and Kev explains how difficult their road to WrestleMania was. They talk about it at length, knocking down their opponents and Owens also adds a bit of anti-Texas sentiment to the mix.

Enter Alpha Academy.

Gable makes his catchphrase and says they retain the titles thanks to WrestleMania.

RK-BRO is interviewed in Gorilla and Randy Orton gives Matt Riddle a pep talk to motivate him to win back the tag titles.

We’re going to take the break before the title match.

Miz introduces Jerry “the King” Lawler.

He takes the mic and talks about his own connection to Ohio and talks about having WrestleMania in Cleveland, to which Miz scoffs that Cleveland isn’t exactly a WrestleMania town, and he gets mad at the crowd for booing him about it. He launches into a tirade about how winners leave Cleveland and walks off.

Tommaso Ciampa and Bron Breakker are interviewed backstage.
