Although can they please shut Cole up during Taker's entrance at Mania please, that FOUR strawberry floating YEAR LONG stint of Cole's spiel about it being the MOST INTIMIDATING THING EVER when Taker resumed the deadman persona really grated on me, more so than anything else he said.


He literally adds nothing to an event. Infact, I often find that he ruins the atmopshere because he comes across like a guy that's not all that great and has to try really hard.
Why the strawberry float have the WWE not found any other commentators?

Am I the only one who was hoping WWE would bring in Paul Heyman for Commentary at WM XXV since Tazz's left :(?

I too would like to see Heyman replace Tazz although i'm quite happy with the 3 man team for mania.

One thing about this yrs mania that i don't understand. Where is the gimmick match? you know that one off silly match? Big Show V Mayweather, Gimmick Battle Royal, Big Show V that big fat sumo guy, the throw away matches that don't mean anything but add a little to the spectical of mania. I'm assuming it was intended to be the Jerricho V Rourke match but obviously that didn't work out so we now have the legends.

Imo these matches are as much a part of mania as anything else. The idea of wrestlemania was to bring the wrestling world and the celebrity world together, that was a key ingredient to the original mania.

I'm a little annoyed coz i didn't come on the net for a few days and missed the talk about the dvd. Was it reduced in a sale or was it some kind of mistake? I don't get why it would be dropped to £2.99 then go back to £27.99. However dvd's like this just make me sad as it reminds me of the good old times.

Kurt Angle Film Trailer :fp: :lol: It looks so cheesy and just awful - I cannot ever see that in the cinema so I'm guessing an america only dvd release. Although the co star who is also in TNA now, would get it 8-)

I want to see a film with Kurt Angle & John Cena in it, that would be so cool :shifty:

Was this film financed by TNA or something?

It was in their sale both in store and online, although it was apparently very limited stock-wise in stores and I only noticed it was online last Friday night and it was back up to full price by Saturday. I can only assume they were looking to get rid of some surplus stock or something.

Mine came this morning as well. Out of interest, did anyone else's arrive unsealed and with a small white HMV sticker (with the barcode and order details) stuck onto the front of the outer sleeve?

Sky are really plugging WrestleMania this year. I've seen the trailers everyday, on practically every single Sky channel. Even Sky News. For some strange reason the WWE are really plugging the Matt/Jeff Hardy encounter - like that's going to sell the event to a casual observer.

If they really want to go with the EVIL Matt Hardy, he should send Jeff a text saying the dogs are in the yard. :shifty:
