Transcript Wrestling fans, stars converge at the Dome for one of the years highest events "Wrestlemania 17 — no question, is going to be the biggest and without a doubt, the most eJectrijying Wrestlemania in the history of the WWF Those prophetic words were uttered by World Wrestling Federation superstar The Rock during a press conference as a way to hype what has become for wrestling fans, the "grandaddy" of all pay-per-views. Calling the World Wrestling Federations Wrestlemania X-Seven, held at the Reliant Astrodome on April 1 a success would be an understatement. At 67,925, the announced attendance was listed as a new record for the Dome. It was good for a gate of $3.5 million, not including merchandising and money taken in by area hotels. Wrestlemania was a three-day experience, beginning with Axxess, a fan festival that featured stars mingling with fans, merchandise, interactive booths. The WWFs second-ever Axxess allowed people who may not have made it to Wrestlemania to get involved in the hype. Fans from 38 different countries plunked down between $20 for nosebleed seats to $500 for ringside commemorative chairs. It was a good showing for Houston that should bode well for our chances of getting future WWF PPVs at the Dome.

Photo by Pin Lim li£' Bv: fid De La Garza The WWF, known for its attitude — a mix of risque, "in-your-face" storylines, brought its superstars to Houston. Todays stars — Triple H, the Undertaker, Chyna and Chris Jericho were joined by former greats The Iron Sheik, Sgt. Slaughter, Mean Gene Okerlund and the Bushwhackers. The veterans participated in a short match highlighted by Slaughters stirring victory. Marked by wrestlers who risked injury by jumping off ladders and taking severe bumps, the event ended with two fan favorites — The Rock and Victoria native Steve Austin trading blows for the WWFs World Title. Wrestlemania even managed to shock fans when Austin turned from a face (good guy) into a heel (villain) midway through the match. Though the home crowd still cheered the "Texas Rattlesnake!' WWF owner Vince McMahon went to the ring to help Austin defeat The Rock. Not only did the WWF give fans a well- scripted main event, but Austin and the Rock actually wrestled a good bout, worthy of headlining the card. The WWF helped add another chapter in Houstons storied professional wrestling history — one fans aren't likely to soon forget.
