Isn't showers just automatically in the Seattle forecast? Also, I still say it would be nice to see a few matches in the rain. Taker/Jones vs. Albert/Slug could be one, and it would provide the announce crew with an excuse for why the match is awful.
If it wasn't for war, you wouldn't know what peace was.
I doubt the roof was ever planned to be open anyways. Both WreslteMania VI and X8 from SkyDome had the roof closed. I doubt an open roof this years was ever in the plans, even if it was sunny and 75 degrees.
Oh man, I missed our daily four minutes of sunshine?! DAMNIT. Oh well, sometimes buying CDs takes precedence over the weather. Although it was pretty nice yesterday until the downpour at a little after midnight, which was today anyway and now I'm babbling.
I figured they'd probably have the roof closed anyway, since they probably need to set up overhead monitors for those not blessed with the greatest seats (myself being one of them). I'd think that lighting would be an issue with an open roof as well. I would imagine it'd be difficult to get the lights set properly, since at the beginning of the PPV it'd be day (however cloudy it may be) and by the end it'd be pitch-black out.
Anyhow, only 349,767 seconds left until Wrestlemania! Woohoo!
I work downtown. Right after the big 1pm downpour (where I was drenched on my way back to work) I noticed a bit of sun peaking out over the city. Not much, but enough to dry me up before I made it back to the office.
I have been so depressed by the weather that even that little bit of blue sky counts as sunshine in my book.
I am just wondering though, if it happens to rain and the wind is blowing just right, HOW ARE THOSE PEOPLE GOING TO HANDLE GETTING RAINED ON IN LEFT FIELD? I know I'd be pissed off but I am right behind home plate so just have to watch for rain leaking through the roof. Yes, there are leaks! I have seen them!!!!!!!

I think you can still use Austin to retain that 59% while changing his character a little. Just because the fans watching now like "WHAT" doesn't mean that any other incarnation of Stone Cold would be a ratings/drawing flop right now.
