The really crazy thing about Wrestlemania is that while there were 72,000+ people at the year's premiere wrestling event, Paul freaking Mccartney was starting off his north american tour at a concert venue that literally was right next door to the University of Phoenix stadium.
While I was near ringside for free my brother who doesn't even watch wrestling anymore was sitting so freaking high up that he could barely see anything and his head could almost hit the roof of the stadium. I took pride in that.
I didn't get Paul Mccartney tickets. They were pricey and we are fairly broke. But my brother somehow managed to get standing room only seats at the last second and ran to the show as soon as Wrestlemania ended. Crazy ass but if I had the money I would have done it myself.
So my brother kept texting me at the concert, stuff like "Hes playing Blackbird right now" and "He's amazing. He played Day Tripper, Obla Di Obla Da, Live and Let Die" and so on and so on.
And I think it's funny that WWE Champion Chris Jericho ALSO ran from Wrestlemania to the concert and twittered just like my brother! That's so vaguely cute to me.
Here, check it out ...
"McCartney was amazing in Phoenix. Didn't hit one bad note and played 22 Beatles songs and tons of Wings stuff. He sang like he was 25 yrs old! Highlights include Day Tripper, Paperback Writer, Blackbird, Live and Let Die, Helter Skelter, Something ..."
But everybody knows that JERICHO FEARS LOBO!

Late yesturday Mr. Lobo's people attempted to contact Mr. Jericho's people to discuss the press conference and details of the match, but have gotten no response so far.
