Fans of professional wrestling are mildly interested in tonight’s WrestleMania event, the annual attempt by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to mimic TNA’s Bound For Glory extravaganza.
The wrestlers of WWE — including such TNA cast-offs Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, and the Dudley Boyz — will perform tonight for a small audience in a Dallas soundstage.
The event will feature a “Hell in a Cell” match (a rip-off of TNA’s Six Sides of Steel) and a battle royal (which, nonsensically, will feature wrestlers trying to throw each other out of a ring, rather than fighting to get inside it).
While WWE features a talented roster and has a small cadre of loyal fans, it has failed to make a dent in the sports-entertainment monopoly masterminded by TNA owner Dixie Carter.
Some fans are eager to see tonight’s match featuring The Undertaker, who is WWE’s version of Abyss.
