Still debating whether or not I should order. The wife wants to as an excuse to order pizza during it.

I've lost interest as of late with the current product (still watch tons of classic ****) and still have the last 3 Raw's on the PVR untouched. Have I missed anything of importance?

Just read about the HOF last night. Some great stuff happened with Foley's speech.

It's Wrestlemania, man! Even if you hate the current product, sit back and enjoy the once a year biggest PPV. Wrestlemania might not deliver, but keep your expectations low and just enjoy it as a wrestling fan.

Getting together with my wrestling crew to watch tonight. Got to get a lot of work done first though.

- Hoping for a big night from The Shield. Not sure if they are even capable of a bad match.
- Really hope Del Rio & Swagger have a good match as the hype between them seemed to peak a little too early. Could have been so much better.
- Fandango & Jericho will probably not get very much time so I hope their match is all out.
- Team Hell No needs to drop the belts ASAP. Not sure if Ziggler and Big E are the right folks to drop them to, but good enough.
- HHH/Lesnar will probably be a good match, but I still dislike both of them (especially HHH).
- Taker/Punk; let's just say that I won't make the same mistake 3 times in a row of betting against Taker in our gambling poll.
- Cena/Rock; I expect this match to be terrible like last time. Maybe a swerve at the end can give it some redeeming value, but I won't hold my breath.

Tonight is the only time of the year I buy a WWE PPV, just bc it's Wrestlemania. It makes me feel like a kid again watching it.

Be loud man. That's the best part of NY/Wrestlemania crowds.

I'm in the same boat. I don't think the current product is worth dropping $70 for a PPV.

So that leaves me with two options:

a)Place down the road from me is showing it, but wants a $10 cover.
Pros: tons of big screens; better pic quality; plenty of beer with a good selection; could use a night out, although doing it on a Sunday typically isn't my style.
Cons: tons of people. To be fair, they wouldn't be holding this if they knew only 10-15 people would show up; sound is pumped through the place as if it were a Slayer show; higher than average beer prices as if I were at a concert (I think); service at the place is subpar at best. I keep telling myself it's because of the number of people, but when the bartender is reading his phone....yeah, probably not.

b)Stay home and watch on computer.
Pros: lack of crowds; can surf internet and post without looking like I'm preoccupied with phone instead of the matches; no worries about poor service; save about $20-30
Cons: Pic quality is usually meh, even on a 24" monitor; streams have a stronger chance of getting whacked on WM when compared to other nights; also means having to cook or even going shopping since fridge is empty

Since it is WM, I have a feeling it's gonna be the first one.

Not up on Diddy's resume. Has he even released anything recently?

This does not feel like WM day due to WWE's terrible build of it. It feels like it's two weeks away still.

Nonetheless, I'm at my cousins and they're ordering it. Lets see what happens. This night determines whether I stick around post-Mania or take a break. I can't stand more 'Cena wins lol' babyface ****. WWE has the potential to pull off one of the biggest heel turns in history here...do it.

I'm not really that excited and I barely watched Raw leading up to WM. Probably going to find a stream

I have a hockey game tonight, so I won't be able to watch it live. If anyone happens to know a stream that will show the replay right after and could PM it to me, I'll be in debt to you.

You haven't been watching the right streams, I've watched the last few Manias via Sopcast (Bloodzeed's channel) with HD quality. Seems most of the streamers have moved to TorrentStream/Acestreams from that lately but the quality will still be 1000 kbps which is better than the usual web based flash streams.

I'll be ordering it. Normally I have hockey on Sundays, but turns out my team has a bye this week. No complaints.

True. It's just $70 is a lot of cash for something I'm not really all that excited for.

I'm sure Ill end up ordering it though.
