Many are wondering if the company will do well over there because the people of that country have not been really supportive of the product. Management had to rely on Hulk Hogan last time to draw in the audience to their last series of live events. Another thing to keep an eye on is whether or not their online video subscription service can outdraw the one by New Japan.

At Wrestlemania, fans finally got to witness the much anticipated showdown between two of the greatest stables of all time, the nWo and DX.
