Well, it's taken until the day of the event, but I'm finally getting a little excited for the show. Don't know how I feel about the spoiler, especially if

Spoiler:
Lesnar's running into the Cena/Rock match to kick off a year long angle culminating in the two of them meeting next year in NY. Just seems a crappy way to end their "major" angle for the past year. If he shows up at the end of HHH/UT, then tally-ho, I'm all for that.

Going to my local Wing House to catch Mania. Only place that seems to air WWE events anymore, and this is the only PPV I bother to watch, simply because it's Wrestlemania.

I have to say, really looking forward to WM28 tonight. Rarely say that about too many PPVs, even WM. Possible 3 standout matches, plus maybe a "new" face or two.

Another potential "new" face (sorry if this was brought up in last months thread):

Spoiler:
Batista has been spotted in the area


If nothing happens during WM, don't get too disappointed (or happy, if you hate these guys ). WWE sometimes waits until the Raw after WM to kick new wrestlers/stories off.

Please tell me that ramp is long enough to bring back the mini ring cars. Someday, someone (maybe the Miz), is going to take one of those damn carts down to the ring at Wrestlemania. And when they do ...... they've got a fan for life.

If they get through the night without a storm in Miami I'd be shocked. Every year when I go down it rains like 15-20 mins each night. Of course, it dries up almost instantly because of the humidity.

Hilariously everything Cena has said regarding the Rock selling the WWE out should have been saved for that guy instead.

Anybody having parties today?

This will be my 4th annual WM party. There will probably be around 10 of us.

I'm having one. Just 4 or 5 people but should be a good time. Looking forward to this one more than any other since 20.

It would be cool if
Spoiler:
Lesnar and Batista run out and deliver a massive beat down to Cena. But with Lesnar it would make more sense for it to be Taker. I wonder if this also means they're bringing back Rena/Sable?


That said, I would be surprised if they didn't save debuts for tomorrow night, as Raw is going up against the NCAA championship game, and needs to bring its A-Game. However, if they want people to tune in tomorrow night, they might need to hint at their appearance tonight.

Should be some great matches tonight. The Taker match is awesome every year and I'm sure Punk and Jericho are going to try to steal the show.

The question is can UT still go? We havn't seen him in a year and recent photos show him fairly lean. HHH has been training like a mad man the last few months and is supposed to be in top shape. Can't wait to see this one.

Not a party really, but I'll have a couple people over. They don't bring beer, they don't get through the door.

UT definitely can't wrestle as often as he used to, but he should be ok for his yearly one big match. The only thing that concerns me about the match is if they pull out some bullshit with Shawn Michaels as the guest referee.
