Yeah, I'm really dragging at work today because of that.  Vince screwed Boz.

I got to bed at 1:00 AM and that was watching on TV, and I had to be up at 6:20 AM to take my son to daycare.  If I had gone to MetLife last night I might've gotten to bed at 2:30 AM at the earliest because I imagine it would've taken forever just to get out of the parking lot.  That's a lot to ask of an adult on a Sunday night, much less kids who have to go to school.  I get that WM is a vacation event now and half the crowd was from other places and can go out drinking afterwards and close the bars at 4:00 AM and wake up at noon.  But it would be nice if the locals who have lives can actually enjoy the show too. 


There were also issues for fans utilizing public transportation as they left Metlife Stadium after Wrestlemania 35 finally closed well after midnight.    Although NJ Transit promised trains every ten minutes until all fans were taken care of, that's not what happened and there are reports of scores of fans waiting for Ubers in the pouring rain well after Mania ended.  Our own Stu Carapola sent along the following article about the issues, with the author noting he waited forever to get a train, that NJ Transit seemed to be unprepared for the show ending so late and that a lengthy line of fans were left waiting in the ring.  

And oh yeah, I wanted to mention that WWE dodged a bullet as the skies opened around 1:00 AM and it POURED for the next few hours.  If that had happened just an hour or two earlier...

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
