We had Over the Edge when Austin fought Dude Love with Vince as the special ref, probably the shining gem of how Russo booking could co-exist with decent wrestling. Stop yer whinin'. :-)



Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace.
[He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.]
Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa!
[Alexa gives him a withering glare.]
Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me.
Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag!
Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you.
[Keith walks off]
Alexa: Ewww!

This isnt a hockey thread.

Anyhow, the TWA, er uh excuse me, Edward Jones Dome hosted a WCW SLamoree,and was a great set up. Perhaps WM22 in St Louis, the heartland of America?

I've always wondered why St. Louis has never had a Mania because, as I can recall, and maybe I'm wrong, it's always a pretty good crowd.

Chicago deserves another one too. Hopefully at the United Center and not the Rosemont Horizon (well, Allstate Arena)

That was a great post. Im sure the LA choice was partly due to Eddie G. Hey Santa Sangre, what other Jodorowsky films are you into?

First, I just want to say that I think this thread takes away my most pointless topic/thread award...but CRZ will have his last laugh-ins on that....whatever.

Secondly, if ANYTHING, we need more events in Minnesota. We all know that there only a few Pro Wrestling Meccas...
Calgary (dramatic pause) Alberta, Canada, and Canada as a whole, New York, Tokyo, one that escapes me, and Minnesota.

The biggest names or most talked about, pressed/publicized came through or were from Minnesota, with the exception of Austin.

We have the AWA (defunct or not), Ric Flair (and don't bring up the Charlotte stuff, Flair was extremely emotional when he was performing in MN), the Birth of Hulkamania, Baron Von Raschke, Brock Lesnar and Shelton Benjamin, Jesse Ventura, Mr. Perfect, Scott Norton, Road Warriors, Rick Rude, Jim Brunzell, Tom Zenk, The Warlord, Demolition Smash, Verne Gagne (whatever your opinion is, we have him), Eddie Sharkey, and Bobby Heenan managing Nick Bockwinkle...the man with the best last name...EVER.

Oh, and least I forget...Brian Pillman died in my hometown. There's even more credibility to Minnesota.

Well, that's my two cents. Awwwlright.

Memphis, Tennessee!

St. Louis, Missouri!

Someplace in Mexico!

I don't know if I'd brag about Scott Norton, though.

Hahaha, true true. Thanks for bringing up Mexico and Memphis...I had almost forgotten about them.

I don't know about Norton though, I do believe he is the only other gaijen to hold the IWGP (NJPW) Title other than Vader and Hogan (albeit it was an accident). That has to give him something, as well as being a Arm-Wrestling Champion and holding records in lifting.

Take a look at the Bad Blood PPV with the first HITC. HOT crowd, GREAT crowd. Hell, they were great live for the Slamboree that was here, and the TWA Dome was only set up so that they only used half. But still had about 30 or 40 thousand there.

Memphis might get a major PPV once the new arena (fed ex arena?) is built.


Oh, and give a break with the Minnesota love. For every Hulkamania, there is a Playboy Buddy Rose being a "star" there.

You know, Wrestlemania should come to my home town of Los Angeles...hold on one minute!

Los Angeles hasn't had a Wrestlemania in 14 years (Wrestlemania VII at the LA Sports Arena which I also attended). So i'm glad they're coming back.

No offense to anybody else and I don't mean to belittle where you're from, but from the past several years, or at least most Wrestlemanias, they've gone with huge Metropolis-like (even Megalopolis?) cities for Wrestlemania. Afterall, it is the biggest show of them all.

Although I always thought a Wrestlemania at Miller Park would be sweet. They could use the money and tourism too, right?

Quit complaining! Toronto as only held until 1998 House Shows! Since 1998 we have gotten 3 shows a year. RAW, Smackdown!, House Show. And we have held only 2 WWE PPVS! Wrestlemania 6 and Wrestlemania X8. The two greatest Wrestlemanias of all time!

looking at all the replys to this post it is plain to see that WM only goes to cities that it has gone to before, Why doesnt WWE go somewhere else!

If by "only" you mean "except those times in 2003 they had their two biggest PPVs in cities (Seattle and Phoenix) they had never held a PPV of any kind in EVER" that would be correct.

That's because you don't live here.

On the other hand, I'm glad it's not in the Pond again. It's not a good wrestling venue, that's barely better than the L.A. Sports Arena (which I HATE).

It'd be nice for L.A. to get a good Wrestlemania. (2 & 7 were lousy, and if you count the others, 12 & 16 only had one good match a piece, and the one at 12 was walked out on.)




There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Yeah, here in the UK we do get a bit of a rough ride. I understand the time differences etc but another event like say Summerslam would be cool. I know we are tiny compared to the US but remember that WE had to stay up until about 4.30am with Wrestlemania. And we have to do this 12 times a year! No wonder monday mornings are so bad...

Also straying from the topic a little, wouldn't it be nice to see a UK PPV where the wrestlers actually make the effort to have good matchs?

It is Nash's fault that he developed a mysterious knee injury, thus ensuring that he didn't do a single pinfall job in the entirety of his X-Division angle so far.
