WM 34/HOF Program

A friend of mine picked one up for me (along with an NXT program) and here's a bit of a bummer:

the Hall of Fame section no longer has full pages dedicated to each class. Instead, the classes are lumped together over a couple of pages and the photos are really small, so getting good/nice autographs will be tough

Also, I don't have mine in front of me, but they didn't even include full page shots of all of the Mania matches - they had most of the card, then just a generic page with everybody else on the roster in a big montage.

Off the top of my head, they didn't have a full page devoted to the Bryan/Shane tag match, The SD tag 3-way, or any of the pre-show matches, so it wouldn't be ideal to get, say Daniel Bryan, Owens, New Day, etc. to sign it.

Yep, it's pretty disappointing this year

Pretty dissapointing? I’d go as far and say extremely dissapointing

Here's a breakdown:

Full pages:

Cena/Undertaker
Lesnar/Regins
Bliss/Jax
Styles/Nakamura
Charlotte/Asuka
Mixed tag match
RAW tag match
IC Triple Threat
US Fatal Fourway
Everyone else on the card

Then they the full roster broken up by RAW/Smackdown/205 Live/NXT/UK/Announcers. The photos are small, like last years.

Then there's photos from every 'Mania (like in the past few programs)...then the HOF is just all bunched together over a few pages

Good thing I read this before I thought of getting it. I bought the WM 33 program last year at a MSG live event. I guess that will be the last good program.

An overreaction in my opinion...from pics I have seen, they still list everyone and you can still get nice autographs if you so choose.

Yeah I think the regular part is okay but the new hall of fame section sucks! I hate it. The wrestlemania program is the only thing I collect and it’s only the for the hall of fame section to be autographed. Hopefully they change it back next year.

Coulnd't agree more. Regular section is like last years, HOF portion is terrible. You can still get autos but it's just not as nice as previous programs, imo.

Sadly, unless they devote a separate program to the HOF, I only see this trending worse for the HOF section of the Mania program. With the kickoff, the pre-show matches, and half the title matches being multi-man, they're putting more and more people on the show, and therefore devoting more and more pages to Mania itself. And obviously, every year they're going to devote and additional half-page to the previous year's Mania show. And that's not even taking into consideration the fact that they seem to be expanding the main rosters and the NXT roster all the time, so those pages are going to get longer too.

So unless they start making the overall program thicker and thicker, they'll probably just continue to skimp on the HOF portion.

Probably. The hall of fame is not even on the dvd anymore.
