WWE WrestleMania 25 will be taking place in Houston, Texas on April 5, 2009. Yes, it’s that time of year again and there will be plenty of excitement for this event. Just as it is every year, WrestleMania is sure to please fans that have been waiting since last year to see the latest event.
Currently, the WrestleMania 2009 ticket prices are expected to sell up to $755 for the best seats at the event but as low as $40 for the lowest priced seats. You can find seats for a wide range of prices if you have an interest in a slightly better view. There is no word on what the PPV will cost this time around. In recent years there has been some talk of lowering the price because of disappointing sales, but that has not yet been confirmed. There is some belief among the producers of the show that WrestleMania fans will be willing to pay any price that is asked for the PPV event.
There has been a great deal of speculation on the contenders and the big winners of the evening’s events. In the match for world champion it is up to Chris Jericho, CM Punk, Mr. Kennedy, Evan Bourne, Brian Kendrick, MVP and Ricky Ortiz. Who will get the title of World Champion in this event is anyone’s guess. This is a new generation of wrestling talent and getting their faces out there is a prestigious moment for many of them.
It is rumored that there will be more than eighty thousand fans flocking to the event in Texas. Those who are not quick to grab their tickets for the April event will find they are out of luck as those who have them are unlikely to give them up. There has been no official lineup for the contenders this year, but it is guaranteed to be a great show no matter who is in the ring.
There have been some interesting rumors surrounding a return of the legend Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin going at it in the ring, but these have not been confirmed or denied as of yet. Whoever ends up fighting in the ring, there will be some serious entertainment for fans of WrestleMania, especially those who have been watching for the last twenty five events.
If the past is any indication of the kind of celebrities you could expect to see, this year should be a spectacular event. In the past there have been celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T, Pam Anderson, Jenny McCarthy and that’s just for starters. Musical guests for the event have included Reba McEntire, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and many more. These guests were not just attending the event, but actually performed for the record breaking crowds.
If you have been watching all year long and are eager to see the big winners during the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, you should get out there and get your tickets now before they are all gone. Or gather your pals together for the PPV event in your home and have a party. It is great entertainment for everyone who gets a chance to see this once a year extravaganza.
