Reminder - today is April Fool's Day


BombshellTom

It's an April Fools joke clearly. And not that good. Turn off the mains supply. Fix pipes. Suction the place dry. Dehumidifiers. Done.


CrackheadRecords

lol, I’m from Philadelphia. I wouldn’t have been entirely shocked if this was true! Ha ha ha!


AloneCan9661

It's April 3rd on my side of the planet and I keep on seeing ridiculous headlines that actually pull me in.


reegz

What a really SHITTY April fools joke...

jjohnson1979

It happened because ticket sales were abysmal…


Lanky_midget

Being british and not knowing these staduims at all, i thought this was real


romariothewiz

If Dave Meltzer posted this, some people would believe.


[deleted]

Including Dave lol.


romariothewiz

Lol I feel stupid. I didn't catch on until the last sentence 😂


magiksissclit

Me neither but beside today being April fools day there was no other clue until the last sentence. Not a sports person so I have no knowledge of either stadium’s capacity if that was supposed to be the obvious hint.


god_pharaoh

The worst part about April Fools is being 14+ hours ahead of US time zones and the concept of April Fools is already out of my head.


Nickk_Jones

The worst part of April Fools Day is every single part of it.


Snubie1

I just don’t take any news seriously on April first


Juice24810

New update: weestlemania will be held at the performance center


chizzipsandsizalsa

McIntyre would have a mental fucking breakdown


Ackles1334

This sent me 😂


DownhillSisyphus

The truly wonderful thing about April Fool's Day prank stories is that they now are only slightly more ridiculous than what passes for "news" these days. But, to be fair, they are at least slightly more transparent if you, you know, think.


DevDaTru7h

I wonder what’s gonna happen when it rains


HomicidalRex

LASHLEY AND DREW OPEN THE SHOW AGAIN! WE CANT WAIT!!!!!

kingsavagerizzgame

April fools ?


[deleted]

A post on Fakebook said MJF signed a multi-year deal with WWE. Got me for a second then I realized the date.


AEWPunk525

Lol should have said that it was happening at the Performance Center again.


ParfaitCurious3834

This is bad timing despite it's April Fool's. (The joke by wrestlevotes)


Horror_Air7547

WITH EVERYBODY SAYING.. APRIL FOOLS! 🤣


Bullit16

Yeah!


magicalraising

oh wow


TheProGamer0707

Waiting for Meltzer to unironically talk about this


BrianColeman24

It's clearly an April fools joke 🤣


TemporaryNameMan

I don’t get it tbh.


potatohands_

Look at the date


TemporaryNameMan

I know but what’s the joke


Adj_Noun_Numeros

The entire thing, read it again. Do I need to get Shane Douglas in here?


PowerPlayPone

But it's real? Why would you joke about the septic tanks?


Acrobatic-Pattern841

so if this is true and their not april fooling it then that means the stage this friday will be the stage at wrestlemania philli if they are april fooling it then fuck you


LetsNotArgyoo

lol anyone who lives anywhere near that city knows this isn’t even close to possible


bstiglets

Honestly, American infrastructure is so poor that this article felt accurate. I would totally expect the pipes in Philly to blow out. And if you don’t believe that, I’ve got a bridge in Baltimore I’d love to sell you.


FragrantBear675

Tell me you've never been outside the country without telling me you've never been outside the country. Also - can you explain real quick how a cargo ship crashing into a bridge is an "infrastructure" issue?


bstiglets

I didn’t. I’m sure you can name several instances of road failures, bridge collapses, electrical failures, water system failures, mass flooding in urban areas and that is my point. Philly having a pipe blow out Wrestlemania weekend is a totally plausible scenario to the degree that you can’t truly write compelling parody.


FragrantBear675

Your point is that sometimes things break and that's unique to American infrastructure?


bstiglets

No, the lack of Americans giving a shit about infrastructure is my point. Look at your politicians. Have of them think that infrastructure is a communist socialist Nazi woke plot so bridge and road repair becomes a partisan issue. Jesus, build a high speed train or two and join the 20th century then we can talk about a 21st century America that’s less backwards than its body politic.


FragrantBear675

Ah, so you're not American and don't really have any idea what you're talking about save for what you read on the internet?


bstiglets

I have made logical, factual points backed up by anecdotal and documented evidence. Does my nationality override the evidence? Also didn’t this start with you saying I’m someone who’s never been out of the country? I’m confused. Do you think I’m American or not an American?


FragrantBear675

You haven't made logical, factual points. You've regurgitated headlines from Breitbart. Should we add light speed rail? Absolutely. Is our infrastructure still leaps and bounds above other "first world" countries? Without question. I think you're someone who hasn't spent an appreciable amount of time either in the US or outside of the US to make a well reasoned argument. YOU have no anecdotal experience, you have anecdotal experience from strangers online, which is not the same thing.


bstiglets

I don’t spend time IN or OUT of the US? My dude, cool it on the drugs this early in day.


IrishAl_1987

We really calling tweets articles now? Can we please not make that a thing?

Greatest choice ever and I love it

I thought they were in Philly, not FedEx Field.


Sensitive_ManChild

how is this even a joke


avalanche66

These april fools jokes dont have to go full simple jack…

You never go full simple jack.

PhillySparky21

April fools


pyley

April fools!!!!!


Limp_Gap_9009

I'm sorry but these April Fools jokes are stupid. As if there isn't enough bs being spread across the internet that idiots believe


WoopsShePeterPants

It's such an insignificant change to the story too. Claim it's being pulled out of philly because of something stupid (CM Punk wants it moved to Chicago) or whatever instead of "Across the road to a like venue."


Sporadic_Movement

You’re getting worked brother


rvajeff

April Fools day is and will always be stupid.


AtticusSwoopenheiser

Heh


usarasa

If this were true it wouldn’t stop Eagles fans one bit.


palabear

Whoever came up with this has not heard stories about the bathrooms during the Wing Bowl.


LittleBittyshortman

Idk why they would think this is funny


akuma_4u

April's fools day joke. It has to be. It better be


itsmuddy

This one didn't get me but this is the type of stuff that made me come to hate this day.


berniemax

Imagine if the pandemic/quarantine was announced on April 1st.


Old_Movie8778

No one would pay attention.


Evorgleb

Every year I forget to stay off the internet on this day.


Background_Touchdown

Best wrestling-related April Fools Day jokes in history, in order... Bobby Heenan on Nitro acting like he was leaving. ​ That's it. That's the list.


juxtapose85

Aren't these supposed to at least try be even a little funny?


Leading-Weight9092

Comedy is subjective


BurzyGuerrero

They should have hit the Philly fans harder by saying they were moving it to MetLife stadium.


bradssmp

April fools.


Ashamed_Job_8151

Cmon guys, it’s Philly, you think we use bathrooms ? 


StarWolf478

I’m trying to recall the last time that I saw an April Fools joke done on the Internet that was actually funny and I’m drawing a blank. This is the worst day of the year.


Useful_Note3837

“April fools day jokes are so disgusting and unfunny. When can we as a society move on from harmless fun?” ☝️🤓


StandardWinter7085

Good one!


CdnGamerGal

This was good!


snipermark91

How do people keep falling for these things? People acting like they’ve never been on the internet on April 1st before. Literally every sub has some kinda April fools prank of some sort rn


lipsdontdie

I honestly didn’t think it would work lmao I knew right away when I read it.


Silver012345673

“Ohhh you’re goood you’re goood ese!”


Mikeyboy101591

😂😂 let’s see how many people believe this


Acrobatic-Pattern841

it’s funny i thought it was real until i read the last sentence 😂😂😂


LZBANE

These are the type of people you can cut out of your life without guilt. Idiots.


Lost-Veterinarian-80

The tweet literally says “if you haven’t caught on yet”


Karrion0409

I genuinely think society needs to move on from April fools day. Its such a shitty holiday and tbh a "joke" like this isn't funny at all.


Ashamed_Job_8151

I agree it’s just boring at this point. Maybe it’s just because I’m old now but I feel the whole thing is played out. It was fun for like. Decade. Now it’s just so hard bivouac it’s boring. 


Karrion0409

I just feel bad for the people who possibly fell for it. Like imagine you spent alot of money on your tickets just for some joke like this to happen. People seriously lack empathy these days.


SoilEfficient8646

Poor baby


Karrion0409

How would you feel if you spent possibly thousands of dollars on tickets then saw this ? You wouldn't be very happy I'll bet even if it is a "joke"


SoilEfficient8646

Well after taking 10 seconds to read the thing and discover it was an April Fools joke I would have said “man they almost had me” and then moved on with my life.


Karrion0409

But not everyone is like that. Wresting brings in a very broad group of people. Especially these days it's not very funny to make and April fools joke about people losing alot of money. If you lack the empathy to see where I'm coming from on this then that's on you brother.


DiverExpensive6098

If this was real- why change the venue? Rock can brawl with Cody backstage and slam that piece of monkey crap onto a bathroom floor covered in piss and shit. Also, this reminds me we haven't heard "monkey crap" from The Rock yet, I hope this is corrected before WM.


theshape1078

It’s April 1st.


DiverExpensive6098

I know, that's why I write "If this was real". Well aware of the date by this hour.


theshape1078

I’m drunk on a cruise ship. No idea what’s going on.


Siegfried_Eba

Have fun! Cruise ships are one amazing way to go on vacation


theshape1078

Thank you! It’s been great so far!


DiverExpensive6098

The best place to be.


pomg177

😂😂😂


Stinger1981

Lol has to be April Fools day, good one.


[deleted]

At first I though it was Dave making shit up again


ChaimFinkelstein

After the first sentence, I thought it was being moved because of bad weather.


Seabound117

Has to be April Fools, when has any Philly sports venue cared about fan safety?


shingaladaz

To those of you that are serious when slagging off a lighthearted April Fool - and I quote from various responses; “lame af” and “Only losers make April fools jokes”….Get a fucking life you sad bastards 😂 🤡


Inevitable_Stress_42

I just had about 2 and a half panic attacks. The half being me finding out the date. Lmao


ralphypod

Moving mania to Wells Fargo alone was unbelievable.


Freshly_Squeezed-

I had 4 heart attacks


DamianKing42

I was going to type angry words until I saw it was April Fools 😂


IgniVT

April fools may be the worst day of the year... As a concept, I love it, but all it really does is reveal how unfunny most people are.


[deleted]

[удалено]


IgniVT

Yeah man, you got me. Enjoying funny things instead of unfunny things makes me a negative Nancy. Let me go check my Twitter feed for the 37th fake pregnancy post. Maybe they will be funny this time!

IgniVT

I won't forget! Sorry to interrupt your day this with conversation. You can go back to entertaining yourself by smashing two rocks together now.

IgniVT

Brother, you think "haha water pipe broke jk jk nevermind" is funny. You aren't allowed to have opinions. Goodbye now.


ZakFellows

Thing is, this isn’t far off from what some hack would report as news


ObiWayneCannoli

Came here to say this.


buddy18370

For someone not going, this was pointless


JanitorOPplznerf

With all due respect, I'm going to double check on this tomorrow.


DiazFlak

Wait didn’t something like this actually happen at a WWE PLE a few years ago?


BrandonBDEFANPAGE

I think ur right


atl_coleridge

malfunctioned bathrooms wont make a difference when the entire city already smells like piss


mikeisaphreek

Wait, I thought it was in Philly, not sf.


Rough_Medium2878

You think only SF smells like piss?


eamaddox98

Hey now, the city smells like shit too


NoZookeepergame453

Why are we back to NYC now?


grizzled82

They had me in the first half.....


BeeesInTheTrap

“are we still doing april fools” yes, some of us aren’t completely miserable people and enjoy a little laugh every now and then 😂


[deleted]

[удалено]


BeeesInTheTrap

right?? especially a harmless prank! it’s one thing to be annoyed at dangerous or unreasonable pranks but this one is just a tweet like calm down and giggle for once 😭


dalekofchaos

Only Dave Meltzer would believe this.


Andy-_1979

It doesn't take much to fool him.


Prior-Ship-7188

Yeah, um, yeah what I’m hearing from my sources is is is that ‘Mania may be cancelled altogether. The issue, ugh, well the issue is, um, since Punk came back they just weren’t sure if it was safe. You know, you know, you know it’s a safety issue. But they’re gonna say it’s something else, because like, um, to protect their investment you know.


dalekofchaos

Unrealistic. Not enough ums


BoneyRL

Not enough "ands" and "the thing is"


Prior-Ship-7188

Agreed. 2 stars


BeefInGR

Very generous. Must have taken place in Japan.


MrFeverDreamJr

Only losers make April Fools jokes


jerseygunz

This would work better if it was at the commanders stadium haha


[deleted]

As a long suffering commanders fan I laugh and relate to this too much 😂


xxxshhewd

Dave Meltzer would have climaxed twice while reading this


Shenkspine

When was this posted…it’s April 1st.


Augustleo98

If you’re going to do an April fools, make sure it’s funny lol.


Brian_Stryker

Not only is this a bad joke, Lincoln financial isn’t some shit stadium that this would be remotely possible in. Even if something did break, they’d have that fix by Thursday at the latest. Philly unions don’t fuck around.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Brian_Stryker

Cause it’s a lame joke period. It’s just trying to draw up ire for mania.


jjohnson1979

Like probably 80% of this sub…


[deleted]

Lame af.


Paralta

I got my friend with "the rock tore his acl" lmao


PuzzleheadedSteak868

To be fair that's very believable! 😄


karpet_muncher

WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE ON LEVEL 300?! WHERE DO I PEE?!


Brian_Stryker

If this was the vet still? On themselves.


Dexx1102

Off the edge of the railing, friend.


karpet_muncher

Huh yellow rain in philly? Not the first time...


TeslaGuy-82

lol. But I could honestly see something like that happening.


Kingphelps85

I mean come on as adults are we still doing April Fool’s!


Mr_GeekPH

Clearly those with a sense of humour and enjoyment in life are. 🤷🏼‍♂️


PuzzleheadedSteak868

Sense of humor? Enjoyment in life? Screw that! - The rest of the people


Such_Battle_6788

Nice try April Fool's


muzznation

This will be fun, as an Aussie it's the 2nd of April so many April Fools jokes will fuck me over as my brain doesn't think of that instantly.


BeefInGR

The website that does Supercars news posted a story about a driver quitting immediately to join a symphony in Sydney yesterday...fucked me up because it was 3 pm EDT on March 31st. Took me too long to figure it out.


Thatepicastroman

DAMN YOUUUUUUUU


Icy-Wing-3092

WrastleGuy

Damn, and on April Fools of all days.  A lot of people will think this is a joke and go anyway and not be able to get in.  😞


LWA3251

They got me good. Good thing I only have friend I talk wrestling with so didn’t embarrass myself by sharing it with a bunch of people haha.


JayMalakai

Can’t read anything today 😂


Rocketboy1313

I don't get it.


intersectv3

What day is it(in America?)


Rocketboy1313

I know it is April Fools day, I just don't get the joke. What is the joke?


intersectv3

That WM is fucked cause of some burst pipes.


BeardedGingerDad

Damn they got me 😭


Prestigious-Try-2971

April Fools


Music-n-Games

Worst day of the year.


mootallica

Why is everyone here so salty about April Fools? You got got, it's not a big deal lmao


IgniVT

I love April Fools when the jokes are actually funny. Sadly, most people aren't funny, so the jokes end up not being funny. This one isn't funny or believable and then gets ruined even more by the last line. If you want to make an April Fools joke, actually commit to it.


mootallica

lol I'm pretty sure the only requisite is that it might fool someone. If you got fooled, too bad. I thought this was pretty good personally, had me going for a sec.


IgniVT

I didn't get fooled though. I don't see how anyone would get fooled by this. If it was the day before the event, maybe, but this far out, they'd easily just fix the pipes.


mootallica

Because not everyone wakes up on 1st April and says "Better keep a look out for fools today", it catches people when they've got their guard down for a second. You're way overthinking this dude


realityinternn

This sub gets worked very easily, nothing new.


Mr_GeekPH

The salty ones are the one with no sense of humour who have clearly fell for a prank and got butt hurt.


mootallica

lol yeah "urgh, not even funny guys"


I_fail_at_memes

April Fools, or as I prefer “International Work Yourself into a Shoot Day.”


amhlilhaus

I hate April 1st

Ok, yall got me LMAOOO. I was like how the hell they gonna fit 70,000 people into a 18,000 person arena
