The attendance for that show should be record breaking. Will they save Texas born legends for the HOF that year and skip this one?

Really curious to see how they load this show up. It's hard to predict what matches we'll see over a year out.

The only thing I'll try and predict right now is that we'll get some sort of Undertaker retirement match and/or Hall of Fame induction. Maybe they're doing Sting/HHH this year so they can give Sting some WWE cred to set up next year's match.

Brock vs Rock would be a huge one, if Brock isn't leaving for UFC. And, if Reigns manages to capture the imagination of the world, they could also do Reigns/Rock so MAKE REIGNS LOOK STRONG can happen on the biggest stage possible.

Of course, we should probably make it to WrestleMania 31 first, but it's cool that it's official now.

How many Von Erichs are in the HOF? Are the Freebirds in?

Skandar Akbar? Lots or Texas legends to go into the HOF.

If Austin was ever going to return for one more match, this will be the occasion. Austin/Cena would be a headliner for all time.

The Von Erichs were inducted en masse into the Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 25 in Houston, so WWE will have to dip into the deep pool of other Texas-based legends for the ceremony. Undertaker is the obvious headliner, and just looking at WWE guys alone, there's possibilities like JBL, the Freebirds, Michaels again via DX, Mark Henry, Goldust (if the latter two are retired) and Sting, who lives in Dallas.



"They showed Kazarian talking on his cell phone. Tenay said that was a sign of disrespect. West suggested that perhaps Kazarian was phoning in the moves to someone who is going to help him prepare to face one of these wrestlers. That's one of the worst guesses in history for why someone is on the phone."

Finally! Wrestlemania will be only 4 hours from my house. I'm totally going to this one.

I've got some people thinking we'll do a party bus up from Austin... if that's convenient for you, keep it in mind!

A lot could change in a year, but damn is it difficult to imagine this product coming anywhere close to doing the kind of business that would sell out a venue that size. They technically didn't even sell out Miami for the Rock/Cena I, and that had the novelty of Rock coming back. If Austin returns for this one, it would certainly get some interest, but he's been out of the public eye for some time now and he doesn't having being a gigantic movie star going for him. His run, for all the records it broke, was actually kind of brief, so the question is will Austin's lapsed fans really come back in those kinds of numbers? How many were just casual fans who liked wrestling because it was cool in 1998. Steve drawing huge is a still a bet I'd take, but I wouldn't say it's a lock. And that's if he wants back in. Taker being back is fantasy booking at this point, so he also gets filed as a major maybe. Without those two we have Rock/Brock, IF Brock doesn't go off to do MMA again. And even if he doesn't, his novelty, like Rock's, has probably worn off.

So it's some combo of those four semi-retired part-timers, because no one on the active roster is a star that can sell that place out.

If they promote actual honest-to-God last matches for Austin, Taker, maybe Michaels, Sting, Rock, and others, that might bring in enough to sell out he stadium. You could have a definite generational shift between this show and all that follows (with a hybrid RAW full of victory laps). Also, that seven-story widescreen guarantees a great view for everyone.

I haven't watched wrestling in probably five years, but even I might go to this just to experience Wrestlemania in that building.

My God, think of the sheer magnitude of a Finn Balor entrance here.

(from www.PWTorch.com) http://www.pwtorch.com/artman/publish/article_14447.shtml Ashton Kutcher, with help from Stephanie and Stacy Keibler, punks Triple-H. It seems like it's a hilarious episode.
