I am thinking about ordering Wrestlemania for my two younger boys. I have not bought a PPV in a LOONG time. Do you think this is age appropriate for a 7 and 8 year old boy? They have been begging for a year to get Wrestlemania for a few months now. Any thoughts?

Well, it's four hours. Can they last that long? Have they managed to sit through four hours of....well, anything else? For that matter, the show will probably go until about 10:50 PM - when's their bedtime on a school night? (I almost want to say Mom and Dad wanted me in bed at 7 at that age, which was outrageous, but that's like when it STARTS in the Eastern time zone.)

It's still going to be TV-PG, they say, but you never know if someone might "accidentally" bleed to make WrestleMania "special" so if that's a big deal to you, you might want to think about that.

Vacation starts the next day - that is one of the reasons I am thinking about it.

My youngest is a huge John Cena and Randy Orton fan (it KILLS me to type that) and the other loves the Undertaker.

Blood does not bother me. I am wondering about the language.

The Rock is almost assuredly going to "turn that sumbitch sideways and stick it straight up your candy ass", but the raciest they've gone lately language-wise is CM Punk saying a censored-out "bullshit".

Thanks. Again, the blood is not a big deal - they have seen worse on video games. I was concerned for the language. That and I promised my wife if we get it, they can not watch the Diva's match and she does not like the way they are dressed or watch her boys cheer for women beating on women.

Seeing that the Divas match is usually awful, I have no problem with that.

Wrestlemania and Raw are rated the same, so if you're fine with them watching Raw, I don't think Wrestlemania will have worse language or anything.

As for the women's match, if anything, I expect the ladies will be wearing more clothing than normal because they have a guest celebrity in their midst and won't want to look bad if clips of the match wind up on whatever-her-show-is.

I had no problem watching four hours of wrestling or staying up late at that age, but your kids may vary. Of course, depending on your cable provider, you might be able to DVR the show and view it in chunks.

Kids today have it too easy. I'm part of the generation that, when we were kids, sat in front of the TV and paid full attention to 3-4 hours of scramble-vision.

Rumours are going around that the hhh/taker could have a blade job or double juice.

Given the wwe's desire for mainstream publiciry and lindas senate campaign, i dont think they would deliberately do anything over tv pg.

Its interesting that women on women violence would cause consternation. I understand man on women violence potentially being an issue for some, but not gender on gender.

I would not let them watch a mixed tag match either if the man could fight the woman.

For the language, I was asking because it has been ages since I watched a PPV and I was not sure if there was as much talking at PPV as there are on TV or if it were just matches. Thanks all for the feedback,

Does your wife forbid your kids from going to the beach? Even 90s non-thong bikinis are less fabric than the divas wear. Although even if they wore burqas that wouldn't change the "violence" (it will be a PG woman's sports entertainment match with Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos, not expecting very heavy contact) aspect.

I highly doubt they'll be dressed any more or less revealing than they always are. Seriously, look at their outfits. Kelly is the least dressed out of any of them:


Hardly embarrassing attire. If they're ok with her looking like that on TV every week they'll be ok with her looking like that on someone else's TV show. Plus they already had the exact same celeb in their midst on the Tribute To The Troops and Maria and Kelly were pretty much tied for revealing.

Rock will very likely have some speaking role and he's probably going to talk very much like he has on Raw lately. As CRZ said- the 4 hr thing is probably the deal breaker, ladies.



Shut up, Josh!

You'll probably get nothing worse than "bastard" or "son of a bitch" and they'll likely trot out Ron Simmons to give us a "DAMN!"

Just take the kids into the kitchen for some ice cream or something for all the 5 minutes they're likely to give the Diva tag match.

Same--though I'd usually just sit long enough to get the gist of the main event.

I mean, that's how I found out Hall and Nash's mystery partner was Bret Hart!



This is all serious business.

I hope this means we get a good MCMG reunion when Shelley comes back in a few months, rather than the predictable swerve turn that's bound to happen the minute he returns.
