Agreed, it's got Dusty, Hogan, Warrior and Sting, this game had BETTER be good. I love the old school sting outfits.

I just hope they fix the gameplay.

Indeed, I've heard that it includes Rick Rude appearing on both Raw and Nitro at the same time, and it's nice to see the Hogan/Goldberg Georgia Dome Title-match which Bischoff gave away for free, on as an extra.

I'm also hoping that it'll have Tony Schiavone telling the viewers of Nitro that "If they switched over to Raw, they'd see Mankind winning the WWF Title", and they all did.

Surely "one of the best nights in the history of this great sport".

Have you ever made a post more than one line long? We know it's only 10 days away, if you're going to post something like that you should at least say which matchs you're looking forward to at Wrestlemania XX. Personally I'm really looking forward to, Taker vs. Kane, The Cruiserweight Open, and Eddie vs. Kurt.

Oh and Pete Rose is getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame legit. I'm guessing it's just an execuse to get him at Wrestlemaina so Kane can chokeslam him again.

I will also be ordering Wrestlemania this year. Making a big party out of it too. Going to get my braces early in the day, then hit a baseball game(maybe) then hang out and watch WMXX that night. Damn, sounds like a good time.

And yet I just don't know, the Cruiserweight open sounds cool but I doubt it will get longer than 5 minutes which is sad. The even also seems to have a lot of filler in there.

Rock's tatoo is even bigger now, looks great for him.

did I tell y'all that I got that Flair DVD set? DAMN its good. You ALL need to check it out. It's my baby now (thats what happens when you don't have a lady who loves you).

I must confess, I LOVE NWA mid atlantic wrestling. I love the tapes and I love every feud. thats why I love the DVD. Don't want to sound too emo here, but it's like when I'm watching my tapes, I'm acctually happy and I'm not thinking about tommorow because my mind has been lost in a euphoria somewhere between 1983 and 1987.

On another note, Macho Man Randy Savage has been added to the Showdown: Legends of wrestling roster.

Yup, WMXX is on Sky Sports 1 at 1am Monday. 

Only the PPV's which were sold to Channel Four (for a year, I think) are the ones which we have to pay for, all the rest are free.

I donít watch WWE much but I am watching it right now. I want to get Stone Coldís little buggy. I think it is really cute and it will be fun to drive around with.

Shame that I wonít be able to watch WrestleMania because I havenít got Sky Sports on my cable. 

Edit - 1 hour later:
OH MY GOD THE ROCK IS BACK!!!!! love  love

Still watching WWE on Sky1 and it was a very big surprise. I got very exited when I so him running down the ring Joining Mick Foley. Awww now I want to see WrestleMania really bad. Hmm I might have to ask my mum and dad if I can stay at theirs over night or can anybody tape it for me?

WWE will be unveiling their new logo at Wrestlemania. I guess they want to signify the "End" of the attitude era.

Is it true that Wrestlemania XX will be Goldberg's last match?  Goldberg's contact will not be renewed?  And what ever happened to Goldust?

WWE acctually tried to reach an agreement with Goldberg, but because of obligations in Japan, nothing could be reached. So expect WMXX to be his last match.

Goldust's contract would have expired in January. WWE made it pretty vocal that they would not be resigning him either. They acctually ended up firing him early!

That is a shock.

I read the article on PW Torch, and he's had enough of the schedule, and the other wrestlers are not sad to see him go, as he's been stressed and tetchy in recent months.

Should this be a wake-up call for Vince?  He's had the hugest push for a (relative) youngster since The Rock.

The match with Goldberg will make interesting viewing, with it being both his and Lesnars last in the WWF.

I'm glad Lesners leaving, I liked him at first, and he was a decent wrestler and all, but he was just shoved down our throats too much. I know it wasn't his fault, it's happened many times before.

On another note I'm watching WMXX in a shitty bar for only a $5 cover. Horay for loose Canadian copyright laws!

I can't imagine how that match is going to end up.  Both guys are going to be out of the company in a few days, so Vince will try and bury them somehow. Either it'll erupt in a double DQ, or it'll be triple-threat with Austin going over (gotta have Austin go over).  Lesnar/Goldberg was one of the few 'dream matches' the WWF had left, too.

Austin might do what he did back in 1998 when he was the referee in a Undertaker and Kane match.  He took a chair and nailed both of them and stunned both of them.  He'll probably do something like that and he'll be the highlight of the match.

Also Coop you said that after Wrestlemania it will mark the end of WWE Attitude, so what will it be next.  WWE Millenium?

Also I want to know, why do many Canadian fans hate Goldberg? Was it because that he was in Bret Hart's last match back in 1999 in WCW?  Also, many Canadian fans also still hate Shawn Michaels for what happened in 1997 where Bret Hart and him fought at the Survivor Series.  Michaels said that the whole world has gotten over it but Canada still hasn't, is that true? I'm not trying to be mean and I'm not saying all Canadians feel that way, but I'm curious as to why many Canadian fans still seem to hate superstars like Goldberg and Shawn Michaels?

In my opinion, the attitude era was dead long before WM XX. They tried the "Ruthless Agression" thing but that flopped. My guess is that WWE will begin a whole new campaign around they're younger guys like John Cena, but thats a pipe dream isn't it?

You hit the nail on the head with you comments. In my opinion, Canadians have gotten over it, but the last time WWE went to Canada they exploited the whole screwjob thing! Everyone was fine, but then they had to make a buck. Some Canadians still hold a grudge towards Shawn but very few, I would say that more Americans are upset at the whole screwjob thing, as they seem to dwell on it more, same goes for the Goldberg Starrcade incident.

It also doesn't help that Bret has his own column in the news paper where he runs his mouth every chance he gets. Go ahead, check out his article, he complains quite a bit still.

Bastards. Fucking pisses me off when the WWE repeatedly screws Mick Foley, keeps pegging him as a loser. Sure, it doesn't affect his heat, as the aftermath showed, but still, he deserves better than to have so many damn losses on his record.

Good match otherwise.

Did Paul Bearer look like the Paul Bearer with a mustache and plae face, or like the one after he face was set on fire? 

Also with Goldberg and Brock Lesnar gone, does that mean Austin's gone as well?  This opens the door for Chris, Eddie and John Cena to become stars.  Who will Chris face first?  I hope it isn't HHH because that is boring, I hope they give Beniot a new opponent.

Will we see the Rock take a long break as well?  I want to see him take on Randy Orton before he does.

Just get a copy of WMXX instead of asking all these questions.

WMXX was brilliant. Fantastic. I've been waiting for today for quite some time, and it did live up to the hype in my eyes.

With Lesnar out of the picture, I feel some what disheartened. I thought Lesnar was a great champion; he knew what he wanted, and he didnt care how he got it. He will be sorely missed by this WWE fan.

Oh, fryfanSpyOrama, Paul Bearer was just plane-faced with a mustache.

As "plain-faced" as it's possible for Paul Bearer to look.  wink

Highlights/thoughts:
- Despite Big Show always wrestling the same match, this time it was quite satisfying. Cena really didn't do enough damage for it to seem like a 'legit' win (if you can call a win with the help of brass knuckles legit), but the spectacle of a man that size lifting a man that size was pure David vs Goliath (a cliche they surprisingly avoided during the match itself).

- At least one of the fatal 4-way tag matches should've been a table match. This one  wink

- Jericho vs Christian was a solidly enjoyable match, with great psychology and the calibre of show which these wonderful entertainers are reliably capable of putting on. Predictable twist, but at least the match ending itself wasn't.

- Yes, i'm a total Foley mark, so I enjoyed seeing him again. I thought this match would be a better end to his career than the farce that was WM2000, but, you know, whatever.

- Lesnar/Goldberg: Turns out the WWE didn't need to bury these guys, they were perfectly capable of doing it themselves. Great typical Stone Cold ending. Though, if someone had told you back at the height of the Raw/Nitro wars that Austin and Goldberg would share a couple of beers in the centre of the ring at WMXX, would you have honestly believed them? Worth it for that image alone.

- Cruiserweight open had some nice little bits, but really needed to be longer. They had half an hour of free time at the end of the night, and these guys could have used that time on the biggest stage of the year. After all, did any of the 10 get a pop? Barely. Could've done so much more to try to get them over.

- Guerrero/Angle was a slow builder, but totally satisfying. Further proof why these guys are (just about) at the top of the game. Anyone else think that this should've been switched on the card with Taker/Kane?

- "Mark out moment" no2: Hearing one of the WWE's absolute fucking best themes again. I've been in love with Taker's classic intro most of my life, and it was wonderful to have it back. The match was nothing special, but it felt special. An achievement in itself.

- HBK/HHH/Benoit: What more could you want from a main event? People felt that Michaels didn't deserve this chance, but in reality, this was Hunter/Benoit with an extra ingredient to give it more pace and 'bangs for your buck'. Benoit deserves everything he got: the title, the pops, the nice bump, and the happy ending. What a showcase.

On a completely unrelated note something that I've always wondered about, the caskets they used in the casket matches, where somebody (usually Undertaker) was hiding in it....how was it done....?
I'm guessing there was a hidden panel on the bottom where somebody could hide....or did they hide under the ring and go through the side....? Like the time Kane put Taker in the casket and set it on fire, you notice he sort of checks the side before rolling it away....?
