WWE were in a bit of bother after WrestleMania 24 went off the air, but it spoke to the series of contrasts that surrounded the 2008 edition of the supercard that the organisation that had potentially grossed $23.8m in revenue for the area were about to dish out almost as much in legal fees following the climax.

A section of the crowd in the upper deck ate a red hot pyrotechnic cable during the closing celebrations - 45 fans were injured, and though the full extent of the damages went unexplored, the story left a literal and figurative black mark on an otherwise glorious weekend.

The company had spent another small fortune bring the venue up to visual standards and made the best of their self-made 'Grandest Stage' with one of the best ever editions of the 'Show Of Shows'. WrestleMania was by now everything its nicknames had been proclaiming for well over a decade - and it had one of the biggest 'Money' players from the mainstream on board to prove it.
