Credit where it's due. The timetable is stacked and they are really trying to make a good few days for wrestling fans in the area for Wrestlemania.
 
They have some good talent put in those five Lucha matches and brought back Scott Steiner for name value.
 
Could be worth downloading the Twitch app with them saying there will be streaming thirty plus hours.

Alberto has just been fired, so now they have to make changes to the main event of their upcoming pay per view.

I also don't forsee him returning to WWE, and don't think he'll find work in the business anytime soon as he's burned every bridge possible.
