For my boyfriend's birthday last October I bought him tickets to Wrestlemania, as it was held at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando last weekend. I figured I would share our trip here.
Should you wish to see all the photos I took that day, please visit HERE.
Wrestlemania drew in over 74,000 people on Sunday, breaking the attendance record at the Citrus Bowl and jamming traffic lanes across the city.
We heard that the wrestlers were staying at the Rosen Hotel, so we booked a room. I was disappointed, it looked pretty but for $300 bucks a night, we got, what felt like, an $89 room.
We got the top floor though, the view wasn't horrible.
Traffic was backed up for miles, as expected for such an event. We were here...
And the arena was here...
After paying some guy to park our car on his lot, we headed to our seats. I have to say, for the price we paid, we got a great view. Right in the middle of the entrance ramp, and just high enough that were weren't blocked by anything. It was great!
There were many catcalls and yelling, each for their own celebrity. I thought this was rather comical.
First match wasn't televised, it was the ECW Battle Royal.
DING DING DING!
Kane was the winner.
Finally the announcers showed up:
First aired match was JBL vs Finley. JBl won.
Next was the "Money in the bank" ladder match. I love the two guys in the Incredibles and Spiderman costume. LOL
For those that don't know, in order to win, you must take any of the three ladders they give you and take the briefcase down off the hook.
CM Punk won.
Then came the Hall of Fame inductee announcements.
Then came the match between Batista and Omaga.
Then Raven (wearing a very unDisneylike dress) announced the winners of the Make a Wish Foundation. There were 50 kids from 50 states all flown to see Wrestlemania.
Ric Flair vs Sean Michaels was next, probably the match that was the most looked forward to of the night. Sean won, inevitably ending Ric Flair's career and he was forced to retire.
Divas Match was next, hosted by Snoop Dogg. Bad girls won.
Next match was Cena vs HHH vs Randy Orton. Orton won.
Next was Big Show and Mayweather, Mayweather won.
Big Show is massive, he must have to duck a lot. LOL
This picture makes me giggle.
Last match of the night, Undertaker vs Edge. Undertaker won.
That's about it, I know it's not the norm but I thought I would share it anyway. And before you say anything, yes, we know it's not real. You can't help but get caught up in the energy though, especially when you're there in person. It was fun and we had a good time, even though I tease Phil that it's a male soap opera.
