‘Mania 24 Sets Record, ‘Mania 25 Update, Blackman, More

Ryan Clark


Wrestlemania XXIV set a live gate record of $5,854,590, which beat last year’s $5,380,000 at Ford Field in Detroit.

When WWE heads to Houston next year for Wrestlemania, keep the name Paul Boesch in mind for the Hall of Fame. Boesch was a long-time wrestling promoter in Houston. This year, WWE inducted Eddie Graham when Wrestlemania was in Orlando, the long-time Florida promoter.

Steve Blackman has signed on to be a part of the Classic Superstars line.

From Ryan Rider: Just to clarify an earlier report, I was wearing a TNA Sting shirt the entire time and had no problem at all. I was even given some free stuff such as 2 dvds, postcards, a Wrestlemania t-shirt, a Wrestlemania hat, and a keychain. The people dressed up as Sting were actually from TNA (the people in charge of the “TNA U” program) and were most likely trying to start a commotion at the event or are just plainly making it up (they were the same people in charge of the small TNA booth the following day). From what I saw, there were no problems in that regard and for the most part the Fan Access was an enjoyable event.
