Pro Wrestling Saturday / July 26
ROB'S VIEW ....
In an admirable call by the WWE travel department, ticketholders to WWE Wrestlemania XX, coming up next year, have been told not to expect a Fan Axxess event. The two-day affair, generated to allow fans the opportunity to experience close-up interaction with the wrestlers, was initiated by the WWF in 2000. Last year's effort was a major disappointment due to last-minute scheduling of events which left some fans more perturbed than anything else. Here's hoping that WWE takes a year to analyze the fan fest, and restores an improved version for WWE Wrestlemania XXI.
