Money in the Bank 2012 is almost here.

For those who cannot personally attend (which make up a lot of fans), you'll either watch it live or find underground means. This article is for fans who will be "pay-per-viewing".

My suggestion—have a small WWE-themed event at your own home.

Start by calling some of your closest friends, particularly those who can appreciate WWE or who once were big fans. Everyone is a sucker for nostalgia.

Once you've got a solid, fun group of people, head to your local supermarket or department store. Food and drinks will be important.

My personal recommendation is to buy a huge batch of wings, your favorite sauces, chips and dipping sauces.

For those who are old enough to drink and choose to do so, I'd recommend using your blender to make some icy summer beverages. I'm a sucker for piña coladas (and if you're not down with that, I've got two words for ya).

Use the pre-show time period to fill up on food and drinks. Additionally, you can make up your own "WWE trivia game" to see how much people remember or follow up on WWE programming. I'd separate questions into different categories (For example: Attitude Era, Ruthless Aggression, PG).

Heck, give out silly prizes—cheap t-shirts with the taped words "worst in the world" or action figures. It's corny, but sometimes corny is fun.

Make harmless bets on winners and losers. Purposely have your friends take sides, even if they don't care who's going to win.

What matters is you have fun. And even if your favorite superstars don't come out on top, it'll still be a great night.

Because you were with your friends. And you reminisced about the good old days.

You remember that time you dressed up as "Macho Man" Randy Savage, climbed the couch and delivered an awesomely botched elbow drop to Tommy.  He didn't get hurt, but he laughed a whole lot.

You'll have a good time. And you can take that to the bank.
