    whats weird is the co-main events dont even have any belts in them.

    HHH vs taker Hell in a cell and rock vs cena is the cards main events but no belts.

    so it wouldnt suprise me if they start WM with a title on the line.

    It may be a bit chilly for the fans but the wrestlers will be fine once they get moving. I was surprised when they chose Met Life Stadium for WrestleMania 29 because I was expecting WrestleMania 30 to be at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Now im not so sure...

    you can get over 100k fans for most events at cowboy stadium.

    with wrestling all that ground in the on the field.

    I wonder if its possible to get between 150k - 200k?

    im guessing i know that.

    id put my money on bryan/sheamus for the opener but wouldnt rule out punk/jericho either

    seems like when they have a notable non-title ME (even if its crap like Kane/Cena at EC) theyll start with a belt match

    A four hour show means they have plenty of time to kill before they even get to the two big matches. Punk might be first but like I said you gotta keep people interested in hours 2 and 3, Id be falling asleep by 10pm. LOL

    The Rock is probably the reason I wont be ordering it. Not due to any negative feelings I have towards him. I think he is one of, if not thee greatest WWE superstars ever. I know its scripted, but im sorry, I just cant bear to watch John Cena go over on The Rock. The only word I can think of to describe that would be unnatural.

    Hehehehehehe.. aahhhh the memories..

    I'm glad to see a lot of people still excited about the "Big Show".
    Being a wrestling fan, since 1983, I used to be SUPER excited about Wrestlemania week.. Since 2008 I kinda been in and out of the wrestling scene but I was really excited when I heard this matchup.

    But now it just don't feel the same anymore, the "buzz" that usually surrounds WM is just not there for me, I don't know if its just the overall direction the company has taken or what but like always I will be interested in the results.. Looking at the card, i'm interested in two things:

    1. Of all the things this man has done for the business and being the consummate professional and locker room leader that he is, I think it is only fitting that THE UNDERTAKER goes out on top and undefeated at WM.. Who knew watching WM 7 that this guy would become the legend he has become. If Triple H goes over I think that will be one of the biggest travesties ever.. I love H, but he cannot win this match, just would not be right..

    2. Like KAL said, I'm staying away because I don't want to see the inevitable, and that is Cena going over on The Rock. The Attitude Era to me was the greatest era in wrestling history. I mean you literally planned your life around Sunday and Monday nights. If Cena goes over I will understand considering the time and money the E has invested in this guy, but if The Rock goes over, which I never expected, I might have to start watching again..
    For those who will be watching, enjoy the show, as much as it pains me to miss this, I just can't stomach the eventual outcome..

    Can't wait for the Network this fall though...

    Does anyone remember the AWA in the 70's and 80's. Stars like Ray Stevens & Haystack Cahoonn.

    As years have gone by I learned to appreciate things I didn't when I was younger. I used to think Florida, World Class, and the AWA were boring as could be. Looking back now, I have grown to really appreciate Florida and WCCW. I think part of that though when remembering the shows was my opinion could have been shaped by when they aired and what was on before them. World Class got to follow NWA Pro Wrestling and hearing Bob Caudle and a hot crowd followed by a half full by this time Sportatorium and Bill Mercer fell flat. Championship Wrestling from Florida got to locally follow Mid-South/UWF with Jim Ross. Do you really think Florida's show taped from some armory in Tampa in front of 30 people was going to flow real well after just seeing the Fantastics and Sheepherders in a bloody brawl? So, anyway as years have gone by I appreciate them a lot more. I wish I could say the same for the AWA, but I can't. I have seen their old stuff from the 70s and pre-ESPN 80s with a lot of people I know on them. I've seen rebroadcasts of the ESPN stuff also. It was just as boring to me now as it was then. The only thing I find even remotely humorous is Larry Nelson trying to interview Larry Zbysko's ninja. Everything else is yawn inducing. The sad part is I'd watch the AWA before I watch anything that's on now.

    I miss the old WWF shows we used to have in Boston once a month and the Saturday TV show with Gene Okerlund and Vince. They didnt need no jumbotron or pyrotechnics to make it fun.

    Agreed. And although I think odds are Rock puts Cena over, I still feel its kinda up in the air. Rock might win. Im definetly ordering WrestleMania in HD as I do every year.

    From a business perspective, I fully understand why Vince would want The Rock to put over Cena. Cena is there all the time, The Rock is never coming back full time. From fans perspective, I dont think Cena should ever win a match against The Rock. To have it happen in Miami of all places? ugh!!! Again, know its not "real" I just feel The Rocks legacy will take a serious hit. As for Cena, I think his whole act is stale!! They need to turn him heel, and quckly. All the little kids are buying all his merch, so Vince probably wont for a while more at least.

    I think Cena wins on Sunday and gives it back on Monday Night Raw. The MNR after 'mania is usually pretty good.

    I don't see that happening. Not much of a return match if its on RAW. It has to at least be on another PPV like SummerSlam or perhaps a WrestleMania rematch at next years event at NY/NJ's Met Life Stadium...

    I actually liked AWA in the 70's!! You had Stevens & Bockwinkle (very underrated as a wrestler), Crusher and Bruiser, Superstar Billy Graham, The High Flyers (Brunzell & Gagne), Baron Von Rashcke, Bobby The Brain Heenan, man the list goes on and on!!! In that era, champions held belts for YEARS.. Bockwinkle held the title for 5 years from 1975-80 before dropping it to Verne
    The AWA was basically watchable in the 80's up until the Midnight Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jennerty) left..After that it was all she wrote...

    I bet Verne think everyday about why the heck he let Hogan go all because He did not think he would be a "suitable" champion...

    When sports slow down usually in the summer, I break out the old wrestling tapes and watch all the classic stuff I have. 70s Florida was great because of Terry Funk, Dusty Rhodes, Blackjack Mulligan, Bob Roop, and others..

    World Class championship wrestling was actually the first promotion I started watching as a kid. World Class from basically 1981 to mid 1986 was pretty good. Freebirds, Von Erichs pure awesomeness..

    Mid South/UWF, Waaayyy ahead of it's time.. ECW before ECW IMO.. JYD, Ted DiBiase, Dr. Death.. R&Rs and The Midnights, Hacksaws Butch Reed AND Jim Duggan, wow talking about an awesome show EVERY WEEK, they had it.
    To this day, I think they ran THE GREATEST ANGLE EVER involving DiBiase, Flair, and The late Dick Murdoch (look it up!!).. A young Terry Taylor and where Sting and a guy named the Ultimate Warrior got their starts as the Blade Runners.. Bill Watts was a genius (and a Hard A** to work for)..

    ahh the memories.. Don't get me started on the NWA.. IMO the BEST of the bunch at the time.. two words FOUR HORSEMEN.. period.
