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.

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?
I'm not positive but I believe the lowest buyrate in WWF/E history was WWF In Your House V which got a 0.30. I thing JudgeMent Day can easily beat that or at least become on of the Top 3 Worst Buyrates of all time.
