WrestleMania 31 has just as much potential to be a hit as it does to be a miss.
The card offers a few interesting matchups for the grand-daddy of them all, but little to no build to make its audience completely sold on for the main-event, that is unless if you count Paul Heyman which can only make it up to an extent.
The Champion, Brock Lesnar has been on, but not in use.
Although it's understood where Lesnar will head after the show, this still does absolutely nothing to promote the main event match of WrestleMania.
The other deck of cards for the WrestleMania matches like Sting vs. Triple H or Bray Wyatt vs the Undertaker are also risks in that they either haven't been hyped enough, or that the build to them have been repetitive, and that's something many fans have seen in recent years.
There are some other holes on paper of the show, such as the fact that Goldust and "Stardust" (better known as Cody Rhodes) are all of a sudden no longer feuding, or at least haven't been booked for a match on the biggest show. Let's not forget to mention the recent burying of the Intercontinental champion, Wade Barrett, or "Bad News Barrett." Indeed, I think you get the point about the negatives of the show.
As much as I'm a realist though, I'm an optimist about this product and want to see it succeed, like you. In light of that optimism, there are as stated reasons to believe this could be a hit, because it is WrestleMania and if booked right, or if done right on the night of nights it could be a hit, or it could like in the past be a miss completely. Let's hope the lack of the company trying to get us interested is outplayed by a grand showing. It's hit or miss, WWE.
