"WrestleMania 3rd Degree - Live!," airing live at 9 p.m. on The New TNN (doors open at 8:15 p.m.) from 1501 Broadway (enter on 43rd Street) in Times Square, will put four of the biggest names in sports-entertainment in the hot seat -- Mr. McMahon, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H. This exciting event will foreshadow the unfolding drama surrounding WrestleMania and answer the questions fans have been dying to ask for two decades.
Okay, so I saw the ad on SD! last night and tried to figure out what exactly they were trying to accomplish here. Confidential Lite? LiveWire Redux? Needless to say, it could be interesting. Strange that Rocky isn't there, though...
EDIT: Forgot to include the show date: 3/23
(edited by Simba on 14.3.03 1122) I wish they made chocolate Advent calendars for WrestleMania, although I'd skip the Mark Henry day.
They'll add some more folks, I believe. It's basically a call in show/in house questioning thing. I've seen this done for the Wrestlemania webcast three years ago, so it's something like that, I bet. By the way, if I was given a chance to ask some deep, DYING questions, here they are...
TO HHH: Who are you, and what the hell have you done to the REAL, HARD WORKING HHH, you lazy, high class skank?!
TO Mr. MACMahon: You know you're going straight to hell for that Kane thing, right?
TO STONE COLD: Why are you the same character coming in as the one you had when you left? Did you run out of beer?
TO HULK: How many boas are in your closet?
Okay, I'll definitely get thrown out of the show for those, but hell, I'll just tell them, "By the way, I never liked sports entertainment anyway!"

Originally posted by The ShamIt's not where the World was (or rather, still is, even though the restaurant and stage area are closed). It's in the ESPNZone. It's right there in Times Square NEAR the World, but not in it.
Ah come on, I was ball park.
I'm sure they would have got there either way.

My question to Mr. McMahon would be:
"Is there a faction from WCW you will *NOT* renew and then kill off?"
My question to Hulk Hogan would be:
"Whatchoo gonna do, Hulk Hogan, when the fans' boredom and the fact that nobody really cares about you anymore runs wild over you?"
My question to Steve Austin would be:
"How'd you get so old in such a short time? You look older than Hogan!"
Know what...all questions here would get vetoed, and I'd get killed in the process.
Professional wrestling is the only sport where participants are just thrown right into the audience, and no one in the crowd thinks anything unusual is happening. If you're watching a golf tournament and Jack Nicklaus goes flying over your head--first of all, I would say you're watching a very competitive sport. -- Jerry Seinfeld
I'm guessing Dave meant that SmackDown hasn't been CANCELLED but it was announced that (as of now) UPN is not planning to pick it back up after it's contract runs out in the fall of 2006. Not a whole lof of elaboration there, though.
