WrestleMania 35 will be held on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. As of this writing I’m not sure if Pip will be joining me this year. If I had to guess at this point I’d say no. That said for the second year in a row will be my brother Mark and I (and my kids) watching the show. I don’t even think I did a Beeramid recap post for last year as it was a pretty minimal effort. I doubt we’re going to make any serious attempt at The Beeramid this year but I’ve been asked several times if we were going to put our list out this year so here it is!
Starting way back with WrestleMania 25 Drinking game in 2009, we’ve chronicled our rules here on the site. It simply tremendous to be able to look back at the times we’ve had. I can’t tell you how often I look back at stuff here on the site. Starting with the WrestleMania 28 Drinking Game, we established some rules (10) for our game that would carry over from year to year and other rules (10 ish) that would be specific to that year’s Mania.
