Most dish & digital cable companies have a few PPV's in HDTV, but that's ppv movies not events.

Live events need to be broadcast using HD cameras to offer a true HD signal. No sports that I know of are offered in true HDTV signal. The HDTV channels you see now are great but not truely HD unless the program itself was taped or shown live using HD equipment.

Somehow, I doubt it:

McMahon needs to have HDTV cameras & other equipment set up for the Rumble. So far, there hasn't been any news that I know of that McMahon has acquired them.

Besides, if this were telecast in HD, there would have been a big announcement by now. Broadcasting in high definition is a really big deal now since so few channels air HD content and HD is currently more of a frontier in the television programming landscape.

Wouldn't a more appropriate WWE in HD debut occur at WrestleMania, the "Super Bowl" of wrestling?

Image quality of the Royal Rumble would not increase by that much on HDTV...

I say let him go. He hasn't really done anything with the show(s) that another wrestler couldn't have done with the same build-up. I'm not seeing any potential for longterm moneymaking when you compare the cost to the results.
