Commentators?

If you alternate announce teams, then who calls the cross-promotional matches? Do you put JR & Tazz out there for the whole show, and have Cole & King doing other duties? Lawler = evening gown match MC/ring announcer/referee? Cole = backstage interviewer/MC for hall of fame inductees?

Ring Announcer?

Lillian never works PPVs anyways, so will it be Fink & Chimel? If Fink works the cross-promotional matches, then I'd like to see Fink do the whole show. Otherwise, maybe have guest ring announcers for the RAW v SD matches.

MSG setup?

WWE always uses the "magically opening tunnel door" setup for MSG PPVs instead of the ramp. This brings up a extremely crucial logistical concern...what about Goldberg's pyro??? There's not enough room at the short tunnel to do it. They set up a special stage at Sur Ser 02 to accomadate Rey Rey's entrance - maybe they'll do the same for Goldberg.

Do commentating as usual. Raw team for Raw matches, SD team for SD matches, and JR/Tazz for interpromotional. Though I agree that Lawler must have a place in the Playboy match because if he didnt I believe he would commit suicide.

Fink should announce all matches, he deserves to be able to do that. He is the guy who came up with the name Wrestlemania, and has never missed one. Fink is the true WM Legend.

Entrances, I don't have a clue. I can barely remember what color my car is sometimes, much less rememeber layouts of arenas. Ill go with the alternate stage idea for lack of a better one.

Besides, also you'd think they're going to configure the seating so that JUST the tunnel is in use since they would have sold every available seat in MSG to maximize the gate.

They may do the University of Miami entrance for Goldberg, but probably not using the pyro if it's the small ground level down-the-hall-and-turn-left entanceway.

They NEED to have a few of those round the corner shots for the big matches though. This NEEDS to happen.

Completely unrelated, but does anyone know if they also sold out the Felt Forum/Paramount/Whatever The Hell It's Called Now Theater as well?

They usually bring out the ramps for the Raw and SD! tapings, so I would imagine they'll follow suit for this PPV. They could possibly go with the no-ramp tunnel, but it might look a little dated. A huge amount of their promotional footage is taken from WrestleMania each year, so I'd bet they'll have a sweet entrance/pyro area. The $750 ringside seats can help absorb any lost ticket revenue.

I always thought the tunnel configuration was one of the things that made MSG shows so special. They should definitely make use of it here, its part of MSG PPV lore. Or something.

I see nothing special with this one. No giant friggin' tron or stage this year. Personally, I'd like to see a classic entrance just because it's XX.

Besides, the big stage setting for WM has just been in last few years and they've just been for the stadium shows (17,18 and 19 in particular...for 3, 6 and 8 it was just an entrance). But if you look at the design for WMs 10-15, they have the artwork in the back, but there's no more space than the aisle width used, maximizing seating space.

If they REALLY want to go old school, just have the diamond XX logo at the entranceway (ala the WrestleMania X logo at MSG).

Ring Announcers: As much as I adore Garcia, I think Fink will do the announcing. Garcia actually has been doing the Raw only PPV's as Fink does the split PPV's with Chimel... I wouldn't mind Garcia doing the Raw only PPV's. Chimel doing the SD only PPV's and Fink breaking out his Tux for and do the entire split PPV's starting at Wrestlemania.

As for the commentators: I think you can have the Ross/Lawler do Undertakter v. Kane because Undertaker invaded Raw and the hype has been mostly done on the Raw show... Vise versa you can have Cole/Tazz do Goldberg v. Lesner due to Goldberg invading. As for the evening gown match, I could care less what happens there.

I see RAW Doing the RAW matches, Smackdown! doing Smackdown! matches. For interpromotional matches I see the following:
Kane vs. The Undertaker: JR and The King
Goldberg vs. Lesnar r/Stone Cold: JR and The King
Evening Gown Match: JR and The King.

Lillian Garcia will be backstage.
The Fink will be the annoucer.

I also hope that they make the Kane/Undertaker match a casket match.

Another earth-shattering bit of WM info I haven't seen mentioned is that "Step Up" by Drowning Pool is apparently the theme song. I happen to like the song, but maybe not enough for WM. Let's see - that ties Drowning Pool with Limp Bizkit for two WM theme songs apiece. Poor Saliva is trailing in a distant second with one. Maybe next year, guys.

I'd suggest that JR and Tazz do all of the matches while Lawler does backstage interviews for members of the Raw roster while Cole does backstage interviews for Smackdown workers, possibly using this for all four major PPVs.

I think for the entrances they should bring back those little carts that looked like miniature rings.. Those things were the greatest.

I have a suggestion for a match that would be as good as the playboy evening gown match. If they're going to insist on having these fluffy extrapromotional matches and gimmicky nostalgia matches just to give people a chance to head to the men's room and get a beer at the snackbar, then try this on for size:

In a shitty-two-album-college-rock-band-nostaglia match, it'll be The Spin Doctors vs. The Presidents of the Uninted States of America. Right Said Fred will be the guest referee.

Yeah, but entrances are such a big part of the show now, that I doubt they'll want the wrestlers to just stand in a cart on the way to the ring.

Besides, I think those things were used mainly to make sure Andre the Giant could actually make it to the ring in the HYOOGE stadium shows.

Upon hearing about how Bobby Heenan sayaing he is going to call some matches I was thinking what if they do this:

RAW Brand matches: Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler
SD Brand Matches: Cole and Tazz
And the RAW vs SD matches: Gene Okerlund and Bobby Heenan

Did he ever say he was the ONLY person doing those matches??

I say they go OLD SCHOOL 3-MAN CREW and have Jim Ross, Tazz & The Brain call the interpromotional matches.

Much better than the Brain and Mean Gene calling the matches. I've never seen Okerlund as a play by play guy anyway, and there work during the Gimmick Battle Royale a couple of years ago wasn't really that great.
