Throw Back Thursday (TBT) – Wrestlemania 31

Two years ago, on March 25, 2015, Matt and I went to the entertainment event of a lifetime, Wrestlemania 31 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. As lifelong wrestling fans, it was a dream come true for both of us, so in honor of Wrestlemania 33, which we watched from home, I’m posting memory photos all taken by Matt as my blog’s first Throw Back Thursday.

The event started with a BBQ party with lots of wonderful food and drink options. We should have taken photos of ourselves outside the stadium afterwards, but we did not.  I wore my Sting shirt and Matt wore his Sheamus Fella shirt. My hair was dyed a much more overall red than the strawberry blonde that I have it now.

After many discussions about which ticket package to get, we chose the Daniel Bryan package, which included ringside seats – guaranteed to be within the first 14 rows). There was initially a mixup with our tickets, which turned out great. For some reason when our tickets were scanned they were reading already used. After we were able to get hold of the tour company that we purchased the tickets from, they set us up with other tickets, that were fourteen rows back and right near the entrance ramp. Hence, we got a better view and photos than we would have in our original seats.

One of the first ladder matches included Daniel Bryan, who won the match and the Intercontinental Championship. Due to injuries, this would be the last major wrestling title he would ever win.

Watching the entrances up close was so thrilling, Matt got some amazing photos, including Sting’s entrance photo.

In an ending that made sense story line wise, but we’d hoped would not be the outcome, HHH defeated Sting.

The Bella Twins were part of a tag team match, and here handle Paige with ease.

Heel Russev made quite the dramatic entrance, lots of boos.

In a finish that Matt and I had both predicted, Seth Rollins, the 2015 Money in the Bank Winner cashed in during the Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns match when both were down to win the World Heavyweight Championship.

It was an amazing day and I’m so glad we went. So much has changed for us between now and then including us getting married and now having a baby on the way. A lot has changed for the WWE as well, with only some of the wrestlers shown above, and others not pictured still being major players in the company. I look forward to attending Payback in San Jose on April 30th, the last PPV and depending on schedule most likely the  WWE event we will attend before our baby’s birth.
