I went to Fully Loaded 2000 in Dallas, and it ruled (if you hear one person going completely wild cheering while everyone else was chanting "bullshit" after Benoit beat the Rock for the WWF title - that would be me. I doubt it though). If you can go to any WWF show, especially televised, ESPECIALLY a Pay Per View, you should definitely try to be there. Especially the one that stands to be the NWO's debut PPV in the WWF. That's some history.
Lucky you. You get Pay Per Views. All we get is a Smackdown where they don't even announce what damn city in Lousyana it's in. Can't particularly say I blame them though...
go. i've been to one ppv...Backlash 2000...right here in DC...that was toooo coool to actually BE at the PPV instead of watching....to be there with 20-40 thousand other fanz watching the matchs in person...
nothing beats the WWF live...

Well i went to Armageddon in 2000 and the card was not very good. Benoit nearly got killed by Billy Gunn. Val Venis had to wrestle Chyna. Hardcore Holly vs. Regal (i think that's who he wrestled), Jericho vs. Kane (the infamous coffee feud) and then a main event that I didn't think was all that great. The six man Hell in the Cell.
But I still had a great time, can't beat the WWF live, all the other fans around you, you and friend goofing off, seeing all the entrances and hearing them (unless you lose your hearing because they're so loud)is great. And the show even seems longer when you're there live, I think.
I don't know if I would pay a crap load of money for close seats cause i'm poor and stuff, but I would definitely atleast go.
Hell..if I travel from the Netherlands to visit WWF ppvs, then why are you even coming on this board asking if you should go?!?!?!?! GOGOGOGOGOOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO!! And give us a full report on how you DID mark out for the nWo!!

I'm still kicking myself over not getting tickets to Judgment Day 2000 (the one where the Undertaker came back as a biker). You can always pick up a tape of the PPV from someone later. With the way things are shaping up, this could be a big surprise PPV. It's been 4 years or so, but the initials of this PPV could finally pay off. . .
Hell, that might be worth even sitting in nosebleed.
I went to the aformentioned Judgement Day 2000 in Freedom Hall. It was incredible. Rock-HHH, 60 minutes, Shawn Micheals referee, Undertaker returns. The Louisville crowd blew the roof off of the house Denny Crum built when that motorcycle fired up.
There is nothing like seeing the WWF Live. Even house shows are good. Since I was 5 years old I have been to 17 WWF shows and 10 WCW/NWA shows. They are a real thrill. If you love wrestling, its must go anytime they roll into town.
I am a huge U of Kentucky fan. And for to walk into Rupp Arena and see the 7 National Championship banners and 32 SEC Title banners hanging from the rafters is something special. No matter how much the WWF sucks at the time, I get that same feeling walking into the arena. Seeing that black WWF banner, the announcers table, the SPANISH announce table, its surreal sometimes.
Plus to see HHH in person is to realize that the man isn't just big, he is a freak nature. Ditto Scott Steiner.
At first I thought, if I were Superman, a perfect secret identity would be "Clark Kent, Dentist," because you could save money on tooth X-rays. But then I thought, if a patient said, "How's my back tooth?" and you just looked at it with your X-ray vision and said, "Oh it's okay," then the patient would probably say, "Aren't you going to take an X-ray, stupid?" and you'd say, "Aw f*** you, get outta here," and then he probably wouldn't even pay his bill.
I as well am planning on breaking my streak of not going to WWF Event with this swing through the Chicago/Milwaukee/Rockford area. Now just to decide which one to go to. I think I'm leaning heavily towards Raw (it's the closest,) but PPV is sounding like a good idea too.

Crowd Noise on TV just doesn't even get you nearly ready for live, it's exciting live! I went to Unforgiven this past year here in Pittsburgh and it was cool, regardless of the recaps :-P
---=---:---=--- [Look up a line] Wow, that belt looks like crap... I'll take it and carry it around for years and see if people can take it away from me... What? What was that? You mean even THIS belt doesn't matter! What? I'm insulted! Get away from me you... you... defiler!
From 411: The reason Matt Hardy didn't have his full ring entrance at his RAW debut wasbecause it usually elicits a huge face pop, and the writers want to establish him as a heel. God forbid they do something that elicits a reaction from the crowd.
