What's on yours? Easy for us all to say Wrestlemania and for me to pick my football team to win the champions league and premier league, so lets stick to other picks LOL I have listed ten, in no particular order and when the rest of you do lists I will probably realise I have missed something. Be interesting seeing how many people agree with eachothers picks and how many people pick things nobody else does. I decided to stick with ten, but it might change.

1) Ashes boxing day test. Spending christmas day in Melbourne and then the day after in a 100,000 venue with the rest of the Barmy Army in the pinnacle of test cricket.

2) Royal Ascot. The flat racing festival always falls on my birthday and so it's gotta be done one day. Even though i'd be sweltering in the heat, it would have to be done in style buying for the Royal Enclosure even though it's got a three piece tail suit and top hat dress code.

3) Wimbledon. By far the biggest tennis event of the year and on the toughest surface to play on. Running out of time to see the greatest ever Roger Federer, as watching him in a final there would be the best option.

4) Cheltenham Festival. Only a few weeks away. Being there on Gold Cup day and getting involved in the iconic crowd roar when the tape goes up would be cool. Presenting Percy will be my banker this year.

5) Aintree Festival. There is no horse race more interesting than the Grand National.

6) Indian Premier League. Being in a IPL crowd for a match in their tournament, with cricket as their national sport, would be an experience.

7) Boxing in Las Vegas. Seeing some of the massive influx of Brits that have gone there over the years to watch the likes of Ricky Hatton, who wouldn't want a massive blokey piss up holiday involving a scrap LOL

8) Superbowl. As a 49ers fan the ultimate at that would be for them to make it when Levis Stadium gets one.

9) FIFA World Cup. Being in the ground when England becoming world champions. Wishful thinking I know.

10) PDC World Championship. Already done the Matchplay and so it makes sense to see at Alexandra Palace the only event bigger. It's such a huge part of the festive TV schedule and a great piss up excuse.

1) Wrestlemania. It’s a no brainer that this is top of the list, have wanted to do this since childhood and am just waiting for the right location.

2) Attend a NXT Takeover show. I think it’s realistic that this could happen in the UK pretty soon and if so I would be straight in the queue for tickets.

3) Attend a WWE PPV in the UK. This will surely happen down the line and when it does I would hope to be there.

4) Attend a major boxing event in the UK. I’m not a huge follower of boxing but I do try and keep up with the big fights and I would go purely for the atmosphere and aura of it all. When I say major I’m talking probably a heavyweight title fight hopefully featuring one of the Brit big names.

5) Go to Wimbledon. Bit out of touch with Tennis these days but was a big fan when younger and Wimbledon is one of those must see type of events even as a casual fan.

6) See a NBA game live. Obviously this would involve a trip to the states.

7) See a Ice Hockey game live. Another trip to the US of A or maybe Canada.

8) See the Super Bowl or just a NFL game live. Very much a casual fan but again would go for the glitz and glamour. Would attend a UK based game if possible as I know there have been rumblings about UK teams.

9) If the World Cup ever came back to England/UK even a jaded footie fan like myself would need to attend at least one England game. Would say the final but think we all know England won’t be there.

10) Attend the Olympics. This is bottom of the list as it’s not something that I would lose sleep over never doing but if the opportunity presented itself. Would prefer the Winter Olympics.

11) Royal Ascot. Great day out which I’m confident I will do in the near future.

12) Major Formula One racing event. Not really a fan but would go for the spectacle of it and also because my Dad and Brother are huge fans so would make it a big family occasion.

1) Boxing Day Test - I'm with Adders on this one. In fairness I wouldn't be picky at all, i'd just love to see an Ashes test in Australia.

2) Raw After Mania - WM itself would be too long to be sat live but the Raw after WM would be superb.

3) Attend Raw, SD or NXT in the UK - No brainer really. The UK crowds are always hot. House shows are poor but the actual stuff that would make TV would be fun to do.

4) Lords Match - Never been to Lords so that would be one to take in. I know it has a thing about being posh and all that but it would be great to experience it.

5) PDC World Championship - With Adders again on this one. I've been to a Premier League event in Cardiff but the World Championships would be different.

6) BDO World Championships - Lakeside...the original home of darts...surely has to be done.

7) 6 Nations Game - Never been to one as the prices are ridiculous, but it is something I want to experience.

Wrestlemania - Obviously as others have said WrestleMania is a no brainer. It's the biggest show of the year in the sport we love. Even if the matches themselves fail to deliver I am sure the atmosphere will cause one to get caught up in the moment itself. 

Royal Rumble - It would be awesome to witness a Rumble live and see some of the surprise entrants. 

Meet Bruno Sammartino - Out of all the living people in professional wrestling; this is the one person I would love to see. I established this goal in May of 2002, after Lou Thesz passed away exactly 7 days before I would have met him at the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame ceremony (which I was at.) 

Attend a World Series - As I am a huge baseball fan it would be epic to see a World Series game in person. 

Packers football Game at Lambeau Field -  As I bleed Green Bay Packers green and gold I would honestly rather chose to see a Packers home game at Lambeau than the Super Bowl (unless my Packers are in it of course.) But there is a 70 year waiting list for season tickets. LOL

Stanley Cup Finals - Being the hockey fan that I am, I would love to see the deciding game of the Stanley Cup no matter who's in it. 

Baseball Hall of Fame induction Ceremony - I have been to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown but never during induction weekend. I would greatly appreciate the history of seeing an induction ceremony live. 

Hockey Hall of Fame - I have yet to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. I would love to see the artifacts and the original Stanley Cup (the one they award now is a replacement that has been used since 1971.)

Wrestlemania - obvious reasons

NXT Takeover - love NXT and they always have unreal matches and decent crowds

FA Cup Final - has to be with Newcastle playing so that will probably never ever happen

Champions League Final 

PDC World Championships - been to the premier league a few times now

PDC Premier League Rotterdam - never seen a crowd like it
