Re: WRESTLEMANIA 29 - Anyone planning on going??

Everybody going to Mania is paying a pretty good price unless you live in NY, maybe even then. Between tix, hotel, travel, and expenses while there it's setting me back a little bit. But I will damn sure go and have a good time regardless of the card. Would I like something else, sure. But a lot of people have seemed to jump to the forgone conclusion that it's gonna suck and that's down right ignorant. Would I do this for any other show? Absolutely not but for my first and who knows maybe only Mania it's worth every penny and then some.

Shows attended:
Various WWE house shows between WM 3-4.
Various WCW house shows.
WCW Fall Brawl '94
WWE Survivor Series '95
WCW Nitro 1998
WWE Unforgiven '98
Various WWE house shows 1999
Various ECW house shows 1999
ECW One Night Stand 2006
Wrestlemania 29 2013

Re: WRESTLEMANIA 29 - Anyone planning on going??

I agree totally, I'm absolutely aiming to make the best of this, tied in with doing non-wrestling related things in the city and things such as Axxess. The card really doesn't bother me that much, the atmosphere will still be incredible. Nothing can dampen my excitement..

We get the point, you hate the show. You've been repeating it constantly for the past couple of weeks. The great thing about that is you don't have to like it or spend your money on it, if people choose to do that let them.

Re: WRESTLEMANIA 29 - Anyone planning on going??

i feel sorry for all the butthurt fans here but a card that has The Rock, Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, HHH, John Cena, Undertaker as its main attractions is always going to be an awesome event and thats not even counting the awesome midcard matches that will consist of wrestlers like The Shield, Daniel Bryan, Kane, Sheamus, Kofi etc . Seriously if you are giving up on Wrestlemania because of a marketing tagline of "Once in a lifetime" then you really are childish.

How do you not understand the disappointment? It's been years since WWE has had this kind of talent available on the same card and they made a card that is as unimaginative as can be. When you think of all the awesome stuff they could have done with the card you have understand why people are let down.

I'm keeping a positive outlook on this though. The weekend is going to be an amazing experience. Yeah the card isn't exactly what I wanted but I don't think the show is going to suck by any means.

Sure ok maybe i can understand some people being upset . CM Punk not closing the show (yet again), Brock v HHH (rematch), Cena V Rock (rematch, But people flat out just giving up on these feuds and not even giving them a chance is just plain stupid. Let it play out, see how it goes. So far i have liked week 1 of Brock V HHH. Lets see how Cena & Rock do, and Taker & Punk. I hate how some people here dont even want to give it a chance and are already calling it the worst Wrestlemania of all time? Really? a card that has the star power of Rock, Brock, HHH, Cena, CM Punk, Undertaker, Y2J, Kane, Mark Henry and upcomers like The Shield, Daniel Bryan, Jack Swagger, Del Rio is going to be the worst Wrestlemania of all time? Get off your high horse and just let it play out before pre-judging it like a typical IWC idiot.

Question, do you have nothing better to do than continually go on and on and on and on about how much you hate this years Mania (mainly because it wont be a complete CM Punk wank fest as you would like it to be). Seriously, find something else and more constructive to do with your life!

I genuinely feel sorry for you!

Re: WRESTLEMANIA 29 - Anyone planning on going??

To be honest, it's all a bit pathetic. In just under five weeks I've got ten days in the most famous city in the world, somewhere I've never been and have wanted to go to as a kid, I'm going with my best friend with whom I've grown up with and discovered wrestling with, fell out of love with wrestling with and then fell back in love with wrestling again.

I had the best time ever at last years Mania and this year has an even better pool of talent. Then there's Raw, front row to see Bret Hart and Jushin Liger, VIP Axxess to meet Triple H, I'm going to a Brooklyn Nets game, plenty of sight seeing and then the bars and clubs. Even mundane things like being able to buy a slurpee excites me. I just can't wait to get on that plane from London Heathrow on April 2nd.

Cheer up people and have the time of you lives the way that week is meant to be. Who cares if there's a rematch or two, there is all the makings for an amazing week!

Re: WRESTLEMANIA 29 - Anyone planning on going??

I think for the money some of us are spending we are entitled to post our feelings, whether they be good or bad to encourage discussion. On the contrary I think the thread wouldn't be as interesting if it was just unbridled ecstasy.
However above all can we try and keep it respectful? Its no secret I'm not looking forward to it but I've got a lot of time for those that are. Let's not start using words like 'pathetic' and 'feel sorry for you' and 'negative about everything in life'. It will be a better discussion for it I promise! We all might learn something.

For my part, I'd put forward that I don;t subscribe to this 'It doesnt matter about the card - its Wrestlemania!' theory because what made Wrestlemania so special to us originally? The card. Things like Hart v HBK and Rock v Hogan are what gave Wrestlemania its magical shine. Some of that has kind of worn off for me this year.
To put it another way, as I was buying my tickets on Ticketmaster I was legitimately thinking 'I wonder who Taker will fight?' and 'I cant wait to watch Brock take on another headliner'. I wasn't thinking 'Should be a good atmosphere'.
Perhaps this is the crux of the matter - some were there for the experience and some were there to see some wrestling history?
