New SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley and Intercontinental Champion Gunther join ’s The Bump to discuss their huge wins at WrestleMania
The main event featured John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels for the t**le. However, to a lot of people, the key selling point of the show was the Battle of the Billionaires.
In previous years, the celebrity involvement at WrestleMania had decreased. It was about the wrestlers more than the celebrities. Then 2007 came around, Donald Trump had a hit TV show called The Apprentice and he had a good relationship with Vince McMahon dating back to WrestleManias 4 and 5 when Trump hosted those events in Atlantic City. The “Battle of the Billionaires” was arguably the biggest match at WrestleMania 23, which we’ll get to later in this review.
On the wrestling side of things, John Cena and Batista continued their runs as the top guys with Cena dominating the Raw brand while Batista was the focus of Smackdown. Their challengers at this event were Michaels & The Undertaker, both of whom were considered legends by this point in their glorious careers. While the Raw & Smackdown brands remained, the brand extension had also extended to ECW. Technically speaking there were three brands at this WrestleMania, which made it historic. Either that or it made you realize why the ECW brand didn’t last too long.
