I could care less about all those other than Wrestlemania. I'd just like to see one of those...

Now, the Daytona 500 is on my bucketlist but screw Indy..

There's a lot of NASCAR races I would rather see than Daytona. Bristol, Watkins Glen, Martinsville, Phoenix, the Eldora truck race.

Indy 500 would be the one at the top of my list of the five options, followed by World Cup (depending on the teams I get to see), and then Wrestlemania. Unless it's the Olympic hockey tournament, not real interested in the Olympics, and horse racing sucks if I can't show up in shorts and flip flops and crush beers.

I have zero interest in seeing any of those live, tbh. Even WM I'd rather watch on TV. The others I don't really watch at all. But my wife really likes the Kentucky Derby so we'll probably go to that one year.

You couldn’t get me anywhere near the Olympics. No way.

Been to the Olympics when they were in London. Three days. Football, beach volleyball (yay), women's hockey (double yay).

The day in the Olympic Village was beyond amazing. Really was a brilliant experience. Copped off with a Croatian girl too.

none. WrestleMania was 4-5 miles from my house a few years ago and I had no interest in going. Rather watch them all on TV. I guess I got old.

None of those matter to me. I would like to go to a World Series game in NY. I’ve had chances but wouldn’t pay the price so it doesn’t really mean *that* much to me. Same thing with Super Bowl and Wrestlemania. I got lucky a couple of times too. Saw Jeter hit the last HR of his career, saw the last pro game of Bernard King, Robert Parish, and unfortunately Drazen Petrovic all on the same night. As far as wrestling goes, I actually bought tix to see Rock come back at Survivor Series back in 2011. That meant something to me because he was one of very few main eventers that I didn’t ever get to see. I also got very lucky to be 60 feet from Edge the night he announced his retirement on Raw (my last live wrestling show) as Edge was a favorite of mine. But back to the subject - this day and age of HDTV has basically ended any need to go to any events, the TV coverage is 1000 times better than in person.

Been to the WrestleMania in Philly. Would have interest in the Winter Olympics if the NHL allowed it's players to go again. Other then that, I'd rather watch Fox News on a loop then any of the other events, especially Indy 500.

None for me. A wrestlemania between 1 and say 20 would have had appeal, but not now. The other events hold my interest but not to the point I will plan time around one to attend it...and this is the part of my life where doing that would actually be affordable.
If I had to choose one a World Cup game or two would probably be pretty wild for the atmosphere.

Having been to Mania, granted during more watchable times for the WWE, I would recommend going even if the WWE doesn't rev your motor at the moment. To be in a stadium with 60,000 to 75,000 wrestling fans at this big spectacle is really something and a lot of fun.

I want to see the World Cup in 2026 although Minneapolis and Chicago pulling out of being host cities has made that a more difficult task leaving me with Kansas City as the most drivable option, assuming it hosts matches, although there are a few other potential host cities with relatives that would hopefully let me sleep on the couch for a day or two. Having enjoyed the atmosphere on TV, I really want to see it in person.

I love the Kentucky Derby, but it seems like a lot of hassle for such a short race and my bets rarely payoff.

The Indianapolis 500 also seems like an event best seen on TV due to the noise and the cars going by so quickly that you hardly get to see them.

I'd love to see Olympic Track & Field, but the cost and hassle once again relegate this to being a TV event.

It's not that hard to follow a motor race if you're there in person. Especially now most have big screens with coverage. Just get an earpiece tuned to circuit radio (most programmes come with them) for the missing bits.
