The meaning of «wrestlemania 33»

WrestleMania 33 was the 33rd annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brand divisions. It took place on April 2, 2017, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.[5] WrestleMania 33 was the first WrestleMania since WrestleMania XXVII in 2011 to feature multiple brands (while a brand extension is in effect) as the brand split had ended that year, but was reintroduced in July 2016.

Thirteen matches were contested at the event, including three on the Kickoff pre-show. For the first time since WrestleMania 29 in 2013, two world championships were contested: Raw's Universal Championship and SmackDown's WWE Championship; it marked the first time that the Universal Championship, SmackDown Women's Championship, and new Cruiserweight Championship were defended at WrestleMania. In the main event, Roman Reigns defeated The Undertaker in a No Holds Barred match, giving Undertaker his second loss at WrestleMania. In addition, Brock Lesnar defeated Goldberg to become the Universal Champion, thus becoming the first wrestler to win both the WWE and Universal titles, and Randy Orton defeated Bray Wyatt to win his ninth WWE Championship. The event also marked the surprise return of The Hardy Boyz (Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy), who won the Raw Tag Team Championship. It was also the first WrestleMania to be on the air past midnight Eastern time.[6]

Reception towards the event was mixed to positive, although it was largely considered to be an improvement upon last years event. Praise was directed towards Styles vs. McMahon, Owens vs. Jericho, the ladder match, Rollins vs. Triple H, and the Universal Title match. Criticism was reserved for the main event, the WWE Title Match, and the overall length of the show.

WrestleMania is considered WWE's flagship event, having first been held in 1985. It is the longest-running professional wrestling event in history and is held annually between mid-March to mid-April.[7] It was the first of WWE's original four pay-per-views, which includes Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series, dubbed the "Big Four".[8] It has been described as the Super Bowl of sports entertainment.[9] The event featured wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brands, following the reintroduction of the brand split in July 2016. It was the first WrestleMania to feature the Universal Championship, following its introduction on Raw in July 2016 after the WWE World Heavyweight Championship became exclusive to SmackDown and renamed to WWE Championship. It was also the first WrestleMania to feature the SmackDown Women's Championship and new WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

The event was the third to be held in the state of Florida, after 2008 (at the same venue) and 2012.[10] Tickets went on sale on November 18, 2016, with individual tickets costing $38 to $2,130.[11] On October 31, 2016, traveling packages with accommodation ranging from $950 to $5,900 per person were sold.[11][12] A two-hour Kickoff pre-show preceded the main show, with the second hour broadcast simultaneously on USA Network.[13] On February 20, 2017, The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) of WWE's Raw brand were confirmed to be the hosts of WrestleMania 33.[14][15]
