What ever happened to the "surprise" that waited for us at pay-per-view events?
You know what I am talking about. The moments that left us in awe or with our jaws hitting the floor with exasperation. The moments we talk about that happened years ago.
Remember the time when Hulk Hogan turned his back on the fans? What about Kane making his appearance for the first time? Does anyone remember when Kevin Nash came through the crowd and power-bombed a helpless CM Punk, allowing Alberto Del Rio to win the WWE Title?
Oh wait, we all remembered that one.
The point is, pay-per-views are supposed to have some suspense to them. They are supposed to entice us, make us want more and most importantly, make us rush out to buy the next live event that can only be seen on a Sunday night at a television near you.
WrestleMania 29 is gearing up to be a solid (if not spectacular) event with matches that we all hope will top last year's trip to Miami. This time, the weather may be cold, the winds may pick up and we may see wrestlers come to the ring in parkas instead of seeing South Beach babes in bikinis.
There is still room for improvement, and there is certainly room for us to be moved and left in that same awe we felt from events of the past.
Here are some things that could happen to help make that a reality.
