A radio host made fun of some WWE fans on yesterday’s “Mac, Jurko and Harry” radio show. Mac said that he saw the crowd outside the press conference yesterday and that it was the worst collection of people he had seen in some time. He also talked about some WWE fans needing deodorant and that everyone seemed to have a shaved head. Harry said that he’s usually able to score tickets from sold out events from the All-State Arena owner, however, the owner said he hasn’t seen a ticket buzz for an event at the All-State Arena like this one in ten years. Also, there was some talk on a few radio stations that the Wrestlemania buyrate may not be as strong as expected as the White Sox home opener takes place on the same night and they are raising the championship banner.
