SUNDAY APRIL 5th: THE BIG DAY
MORNING AND AFTERNOON: LAST CHANCE FOR AXXESS
If you didn't have a chance to grab some autographs, merchandise or photos at
AXXESS, this will be your best chance. With so much preparation for the
PPV that day, many of the bigger names won't be appearing, thus the attendance
may be done and you'll have your run of the place! Talent that will be
appearing at the two AXXESS sessions scheduled are:
8 - 10 AM: Jeff Hardy, Candice Michelle, Maria, Joey Styles & more.
10 AM -12 PM: Ric Flair, The Great Khali, Eve, Mr. Kennedy, Tiffany, Jack
Swagger, Dusty Rhodes, Ted DiBiasi Sr., Kelly Kelly & more.

3 - 5 PM: Ken Kennedy, Afa, Ron Simmons, Nick Bockwinkel, Harley Race, Tito
Santana, Greg Valentine, Mae Young, Hacksaw Duggan & more.
6 PM TEXAS TIME: WRESTLEMANIA XXV
If you are in Houston, Texas and you are a wrestling fan, I'd be stunned to
find out you aren't going to the show. As of this writing, there are still
tickets available and I expect as we get closer to the big day, comp tickets
will be easier to track down via radio shows, etc.
WWE will give you enough hype up the wazoo. Here's the matches:
- WWE Champion Triple H vs. Randy Orton.
