WrestleMania XXX Only Has 7 Matches

Only seven matches are booked for WrestleMania XXX. Is this enough for a four-hour show?

WrestleMania XXX used to have eight matches, but the Tag Team Title match has now been relegated to the pre-show. With seven matches scheduled, how will the WWE be able to fill up a four-hour show? Last year’s WrestleMania 29 had nine matches on the card while WrestleMania 28 had eight matches.

WWE has yet to announce any musical performances for WrestleMania XXX, so I don’t think they would be hogging the time. I’m hoping WrestleMania XXX isn’t littered with unfunny backstage segments. There was a lot of unnecessary fluff booked at WrestleMania 27. That show had very bad matches too.

With Hulk Hogan hosting this year’s show, it’s possible he will do a promo at the beginning introducing the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. The Rock talked for something like 20 minutes during the start of WrestleMania 27. It’s possible that Hogan could do the same considering how there aren’t many matches booked for the show.

Out of all the matches booked for WrestleMania XXX, the only one I can see going for 30 minutes is Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar. I’m sure these two will be going all-out since they only wrestle on a part-time basis. I doubt the main event with Batista, Randy Orton and either Triple H or Daniel Bryan will go for more than 20 minutes. This is because I don’t think Batista can go for that long as his fitness has been horrible since he came back.

I’m hoping the WWE can manage their time well and WrestleMania XXX is entertaining throughout. If the show is stuffed with unfunny segments, it could be as bad as WrestleMania 27.
