Wrestlemania 23

Wrestlemania 23 will be held this Sunday, April 1 at Ford Field in Detroit. The event is sold out, all 65,000 tickets, but many are available on Ebay in all prices ranges from $65 to $1950. Notice that the Michigan ticket for $59.99 includes a $80 shipping charge, due to Michigan laws restricting ticket resale prices. In the "Hair vs. Hair" match, either Donald Trump or Vince McMahon will have their head shaved.

Wrestlemania V (1989) flashback: Jake "The Snake" Roberts defeated Andre "The Giant" (with Bobby "The Brain" Heenan) by disqualification, after Andre attacked the special referee "Big John Stud." During the match, Ted "The Million Dollar Man" DiBiase
stole Roberts' snake, "Damien." For several years, Roberts used his snake to gain a psychological edge over André, who had a dreaded fear of snakes (ophidiophobia), and even "suffered" a heart attack on national television over his fear of Jake's snake.
