....Orlando, as has been rumoured for a few months, and apparently confirmed through the Observer via a report on a local Florida TV station.

I think it's a good choice insofar as it's nice to see WM moved around the country besides the three major points of LA-Chicago-New York, and this is Florida's first shot. It's kind of curious that WWE wouldn't choose to hold it in a larger venue than the Orlando arena, however, when it's been shown that the Wrestlemania name alone can pack a 60,000 seat stadium.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

Wiki says they've put 73K in the place for football games, so they should be able to fit in plenty. Rain? Dunno.

Maybe this was planned well in advance and things can't be changed and they're sure they'll be able to handle it, but - if you're WWE, do you really want to have a press conference tomorrow? If you're Orlando, do you really want to be saying "WWE is great and we're thrilled to have them" at this moment? Bravery or foolishness? Dunno.

VKM has the benefit of a short drive for their next video segment.

Ok, this might sound like a 'stupid' question, but whose idea was it to have the WWE's biggest event at an outdoor arena during in a state where hurricanes like to tear through?

If that'd be their next segment, everyone else would have the benefit of no VKM video segments for a year.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. Hurricane season is from June 1 until November 30. Al Gore's opinion notwithstanding

Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

Having Summerslam in notoriously rainy London in 1992 was a risk, but it paid off in spades. The Caesar's Palace arena was partially exposed at WM9, though it doesn't rain much in Vegas (and a rainout might've improved that sorry event). I guess it's a risk WWE is willing to take, but I wonder if they don't have the stadium also tentatively booked for the next weekend in case of bad weather.

I'm suprised Vince chose to do it there, since he's said to not be a fan of outdoor shows. And putting the biggest show of the year outdoors in Florida is quite a risk. I'm sure they'll construct a roof to protect the ring from the elements. But if it happens to rain, that could still dampen the mood of the crowd. You don't want Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit attempting to have a ***** classic in the ring, while, in the background, fans are running for cover.

However, I, personally, am a big fan of outdoor shows (I even liked the oft-hated Road Wild shows). So I say YAY!

Further investigation shows that the building (built in 1936!!!) does sort of give off a dumpy vibe. Still, it's WrestleMania in a giant, outdoor stadium, so it should be fun.

For their outdoor house shows at Harry Grove Stadium in Frederick, MD, they didn't build a roof and one of the turnbuckles was basically unusable because a lighting rig was attached to it. I hope they use a better setup for wrestlemania.

I do remember Rey getting a drop-kick off of it on Orton because he is so tiny.

Sight-lines will sure be interesting but I would not worry about the weather. WCW did many of these open air shows in Panama City and Orlando Fl.
