    Wrestlemania tonight

    Ever since someone posted the Rock has been back to the WWE in February, I've been keeping up with Raw/Smackdown. I'm bummed Wrestlemania is on PPV, but don't care enough to pay for it. Does anyone know if there is a way to watch it sometime after its over? The Undertaker/Triple H fight will be epic. Also looking forward to see how the Jerry the King Lawler and Michale Cole fight will go with Stone Cold reffing.

    Never been a huge fan of the fake wrestling (besides some of the huge finish moves) but the dialogue makes for a guilty pleasure.

    Re: Wrestlemania tonight

    I think that wwe.com will put up a highlight package.

    Some of it will end up on youtube for a few seconds, but the WWE watches that very intently, and that doesn't last long.

    I'm sure there are more ways, but I'm not very clever on that.

    Re: Wrestlemania tonight

    I ordered it yesterday and am having guys over to watch. Yeah it's juvenile and stupid and horribly acted, but so what? I'm going to have a few beers and kick back and act like a dumb *** for a few hours and I'm proud of it.

    Also, the PPV was $55 for standard def, $65 for HD. I know they usually offer a reduced package for the week following where you can buy for $10-$15 if you really want to watch it after all is said and done.

    ...anyway, I'm taking the Undertaker to keep the Wrestlemania undefeated streak alive and I think the Miz takes down John Cena to retain the title. Also, with Stone Cold in the house, somebody is going to get stunnered and it's going to be just as good as it ever was. Nothing brings the house down like a stunner. It's like a Lebron dunk in traffic, Albert Pujols home run and Devin Hester punt return touchdown all in one. Just electrifying.

    Re: Wrestlemania tonight

    Given that they get the reactions they're shooting for, is it really that horribly acted?

    No acting here. I'm still convinced that McMahon actually peed himself. And nobody sells it like JR and Jerry the King.

    Re: Wrestlemania tonight

    Miz over Cena
    Undertaker over HHH (although I am a huge HHH fan it kills me to say that)
    King over Cole
    Snooki/Stratus over Vicki Gurrerro/whoever else
    Shamus over whoever he is facing
    can't remember the rest of the card....

    Re: Wrestlemania tonight

    There will be live streams available if you know where to look (I don't know where to look, I have a friend who is big into this stuff and watches almost every PPV online). I'll be over at said friend's place with several others to watch/drink/eat.

    I loved Stone Cold vs McMahon.

    I really want to watch to. May try to track down an online feed. I'd buy the PPV if others wanted to watch with me. I wish there were bars in the area that carried it.

    Hooters used to carry the monthly PPV's.....I don't think they do the monthly ones anymore, but they might do Wrestlemania as only an annual thing, especially if they get enough interest in it.

    Re: Wrestlemania tonight

    Question: Does anyone actually like John Cena? I mean, he's obviously tried to follow in the footsteps of The Rock and just hasn't been successful at all, but I think he's a colossal d-bag. The Rock was actually cool and talked great smack and I'm pretty sure The Rundown is one the 10 best films ever made, so it's obvious why everyone loves The Rock, but what has Cena done to garner so much fan support?

    You've got The Rock, Christopher Walken and Sean William Scott. We're talking about three of the greatest actors of our generation and a golden ******. Plus, The Rock takes out an entire armed para-military unit without using a gun.

    Perhaps you need to rewatch it. The final battle scene where The Rock lowers his shoulder and explodes a brick corner of a building is one of the greatest cinematic experiences ever. Not too mention he Rock Bottoms like six dudes in the film.

    I could not agree more with your analysis on Cena. And yes, I am doing the EXACT same thing that you are tonight. Should be a fun show.
