The longest running and most popular of all the major professional wrestling events is holding it's annual wrestling meeting at the Citrus Bowl on March 30 th 2008. This will be the first time this event has been held in Orlando and the state of Florida. This will be the biggest bash ever with ticket sales over 41,000 within the first 30 minutes of going on sale and this event is expected to bring over 70,000 visitors and an estimated $40 million to the Orlando area business. The Citrus Bowl is an outdoor football stadium and this is only the second time the event has been held at an outdoor venue, we all know how quickly the rain comes on in Orlando but event organizers are confident the show will go on come rain or shine.
