Prediction: The double main event will involve Cena, HHH, Edge, and Orton.

Mike Knox had better become really good really quick if he's to be inducted in the Hall of Fame by next year.

Attending a NFC Championship game (maybe two) and aWrestlemania in a span of fifteen months isn't too shabby.

There was a rumor that Jerry Jones was interested in getting the event in the new "TEXAS STADIUM".

Eventually, but I couldn't see them going to Texas twice in a row. Maybe for #30.

No way man, the 10's always have to be at MSG.

I work for the University of Phoenix and it kinda pisses me off they waste money on this stadium when the instructors are only contract employees. Then they spend money on the guidance counselors who have no clue what goes on in a classroom and push students through the course regardless if they know the material. Of course, you never heard that from me.

As for the event itself, it should be interesting since Cena/Batista will hopefully come to pass.

It's way, way too early to presume anything whatsoever about what matches will be on the card for 26.

It's also way too early for me to consider attending 26 as I did 24 and will 25. I can't say I want to go to Phoenix, hot weather withstanding.

Early April, it'll max out in the lower 90s during the day, & be lovely after the sun goes down -- no humidity. The stadium has a retractable roof, so can be closed if it's unpleasant. But, y'know, whatever ...

Sorry, I didn't mean to disparage Phoenix. But from my launching point in Boston, across the country seems like a long way to travel for WrestleMania to me. Then again, I may be on the west coast by that time next year anyway. In that case, save a seat in that stadium for me!

80,000 additional people (plus whatever side deal Jerry Jones makes to get the 100,000 plus to attend and spend on the concessions that the Cowboys and Yankees control) vs. nostalgia at a 20,000 seat arena. Now, smaller arena probably means more PPV buys due to less people being able to access the building, but, what impact does that have on the ancillary activities for WM weekend? Also, if they wanted it to be based solely on sentiment, it should be the 1's at MSG. And, what generation of McMahon's is making the call in the 2 years leading up to that event?

As for N.O. ever hosting a WM, N.O. Arena too small and the Superdome way to big. If you have ever been on the upperdeck of the dome for a football game you would understand. Also the lockerooms are on the otherside from the loading dock which is a hike if you do not have a golf cart. I believe J.R. once wrote this in one of his blogs.

As for Arizona getting WM 26, It would seem like a simple process as all they would have to do is roll the stage and ring in like they do for the field.

The Dallas Wrestlemania could just take place at WM29. It doesn't have to be a round number or anything...and I agree that the Tens should all take place at MSG, for history's sake. I'm just hoping we get WM28 in Toronto so I can finally attend one.



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

Vince is a mark for MSG. The rest of the family are marks for Vince. WM30 at Madison Square Garden is a lock. Triple H, Bob Backlund, Diesel, Paul Heyman, Howard Finkel, and someone on the main roster who dies between now and then will go into the Hall of Fame.

I can't figure out where they'd have ROH shows that weekend, seeing as how there's basically no precedent for a wrestling show in the Phoenix area that size. Celebrity Theater has had wrestling shows in the past but seems too big. The Sets is too small. IT'S A MYSTERY.

By WM26, they'll either be ALL BLOWN UP from the HDNet show and can pull a bigger crowd....or they'll be out of business and it'll be a moot point. Or something entirely different!

"Brock Lesnar & Shawn Stasiak" That should be real interesting. One gimmick is building the guy up as a monster heel and the other is a complete dufus. The card doesn't look bad but why is HHH wrestling?
