When Wrestlemania XXIV begins tomorrow night, it is estimated that the event will be broadcast via Pay Per View to more than one million households. That number is even more impressive when you consider that double-wide trailers aren't counted twice, as you'd think they would be. Since the spectacle draws a huge number of viewers who don't keep up with professional wrestling, the impact of some of the matches may be lost on people who aren't familiar with the wrestlers competing in each event. Brush up on your pro wrestling knowledge with this Wrestlemania roster, or risk complete embarrassment at your local MENSA chapter's Wrestlemania XXIV party.
