    When I lived in Vegas I went to a Monday Night Raw event with my son for his birthday. Not a huge wrestling fan, but I knew enough...lots of people made their way there...lots of people were unannounced, like the Rock and a few other big names. I think our tickets were 80 bucks for both of them and for just the spectacle and show, I feel like I got off cheap. It was 4 hours long and they had all kinds of shit going on, so there were not any lulls. Well worth it.

      Jerruh must be so happy.
      I read somewhere that the gate was something like $17.6 million.

        Yup. I've known the family for years. She grew up in Latvia in a missionary family of American parents.

                  More of a performance, like ballet or gymnastics, but it takes some real athleticism to do it. Especially now, the days when the better performers would just carry a fat guy are mostly gone.

                    It's like performance arts for straight men. I've got nothing against it.

                      Yep. It's a choreographed exhibition with a pre determined ending. The crowd frenzy is interesting. I haven't seen professional wrestling for some time but it is probably about the same only more of an extravaganza.

                        Not Wrestlemania related but certainly worth mentioning......Joan Laurer AKA Chyna died last night at the age of 45.

                          I'm going to take a shot in the dark and guess it was cardiac related.

                            For all the attention paid to NFL's long term health impacts, WWE gets off scott-free while being if not Moreso destructive

                              I don't think it's the long term health impacts of wrestling that's the problem. It's the long term steroid and cocaine use that kills these guys.

                                For what it's worth, WWE has mandatory retirement procedures in place for head trauma now. Arguably their most popular current star retired a few months ago in his 30s after WWE officials refused to clear him after a concussion, even when a few independent doctors gave him an OK.
