Which, if any of these, will you be doing on March 30th? I ask because I'm hearing that Comcast is charging $60 (was it $60 or $50 last year?) for the non-HD broadcast and $75 for the HD broadcast. Uh, I like the "granddaddy of them all" and haven't missed either ordering or attending one in a while but, at that cost, I may be heading to a local establishment to watch this year's show.
Now I know how Mayweather's getting the $20 million. Wow.
Any year before this, I wouldn't have thought twice. But this year...I just don't know. The main event is totally uninteresting to me, but...it's WrestleMania. Something awesome WILL happen, and I WILL feel like shit if I miss it.
I'll be watching it at a local establishment, same as last year. For a few years in a row before that I watched it at my buddy's house with a bunch of other dudes who no longer watch any wrestling at all (and these were lucha/japan tape trading junkies back in the day too).
WM15 was the only one I've ever bought myself, WM2 was the first one I ever saw (on tape, and I cried when King Kong Bundy made the Hulkster bleed), and WM8 was the first one I ever watched live (on PPV).

Those are pretty sweet. If I had a room big enough for one, I'd invest. I saw the 1994 FIFA World Cup final match on a 110 inch screen and it was plenty big for 150 or so people. A church close to my house had rented one for the match.
I'll be in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando. My first live WrestleMania and it's 24 years coming. Flying down with Lance Jr. on Friday and meeting another friend there. Making a four day weekend of it: Hall of Fame, WrestleMania, and RAW. We'll be there for all of it. And we'll squeeze in some time at Universal Islands of Adventure and Walt Disney World as well. I'll need a vacation to recover from WrestleMania weekend.
I was first heavy into wrestling in the 80's when Hogan first won the belt off of the Iron Sheik. I faded away from it around 1989 or 1990. Then one night in 1999 I was home sick from work and was flipping through channels.
