Another boring and repetitive Heyman promo telling us for the 1342nd time of the achievements of Brock Lesnar.

I would like to see a segment in the ring where Brock snatches the mic from Heyman and cuts his own promo in the face of Mcintyre.

Drew finally reaching the top of the food chain should be a big moment, but if the match is too short it won't be remembered.

I seem to be in the minority but I enjoy the quick hard hitting matches that we often see featuring Lesnar like the one we saw with McIntyre at Wrestlemania. Sometimes you can feel short changed due to the length but these types of matches have you gripped on the edge of your seat. 

I think this was the right booking decision, save a more lengthy match for when a rematch can happen in front of a live crowd. 

The worst thing about it was that this was a ground breaking moment with the crowning of the first ever British WWE World Champion and such a huge moment in the career of McIntyre, but he had to celebrate it in a empty arena, had to feel for him.

Sorry Fletch but I can't agree with you; and really your own last paragraph gives the reason why, as well as why the event should have been postponed. If you like those quick hard hitting matches that's one thing. But if you want to "save" something better for when a crowd can be there then the whole WrestleMania should have been saved for when a crowd can be there. WrestleMania is the pinnacle of the wrestling year where the climax to everything happens. There should never be a "throw away" WrestleMania main event. Plus a person's first World Title win is always a special moment. Plus this match had a lot of good build since the Rumble. 

Now I'm not necessarily sold on McIntyre as being "the guy" to start with; but that's another story. But if he is going to be the guy, they either should have put on a better match that was worthy of being a WrestleMania main event and first World Title win for a major star, or they should have postponed the whole thing. But a throw away WrestleMania main event is not something that should happen ever.

Under normal circumstances I would agree with you 100%. 

If WWE had a reasonable timeframe of when some normality will resume then I would have said yes postpone all major shows including Wrestlemania. But they don't so there was a very good chance a postponement would end up being a cancellation. 
I think they did the right thing taking a show must go on mentality and giving fans something to enjoy during these troubled times. 

But that said the empty arena did have a adverse effect on the matches, wrestling matches feed off crowd energy and it helps with the pacing and the whole layout of the match in general so it was smart of WWE to do what they could to combat this issue, a major complaint was that some matches were just too long, without a audience matches did feel more drawn out and plodded in pace. 
Anyway WWE were able to deal with this issue by running the cinematic matches, that was a good call and it worked very well but they couldn't do this for every match of course. 
Drew and Brock could have worked a much longer clinic of a match but it definitely wouldn't have had the impression on fans it would have had if they had worked in front of a live crowd. 
That's why I think it was smart booking to go with the short hard hitting match that produced the right result. Drew and Brock can work a show stealing longer match when normal service resumes. 

If life returns to normal later this year WWE would be smart to build Summerslam or Survivor Series as a really big deal perhaps to make up for what Wrestlemania lacked this year.
