Because we got hosed out of wrestlemania. SS is a nice consolation price, but it also means we don’t get em in the mid term. Obviously not 2025 or 2026, likely not 2027 either. MN is a hotbed to wrestling history and it’s unfortunate we haven’t gotten the big show ever.

Rumor was they asked the City for a 5 million bid price and they said no.    You know pay 5 million to make 300 Million.   Again just a rumor

This concept boggles my mind - we want you to pay us to come to your town so we can use your facilities and make a bazillion dollars off ticket sales over two nights.  But, whatever.  They seem to be able to get it as they do charge a bid for their big PPV events now.  I guess I don't know how they share ticket revenue, concessions, and the like to know how easy / hard it would be to get that bid approved and then appropriately repay whomever covered it.

To relate it to sportsball: give us this many million for a new stadium/arena, and we'll stay. *shrug*

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the United States you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.

Philly paid $3 million to host Wrestlemania but in the end the city made $250 million.
