Wrestlemania 30 Confirmed for New Orleans (Official event thread)

Book it! First weekend of April in 2014, the Mercedes Benz Superdome will be hosting the granddaddy of them all - the pinnacle of pro wrestling!

Even if you don't like pro wrestling - its a big tourism grab for the city because that's a whole lot of tourism headed to town and a whole lot of hotel rooms booked, and the MNRT will be well represented at the dome!

This also means that the night before will be used for the Hall Of Fame ceremony at the Arena, which means even more revenue for the city.

((Yes, I'm marking this as the official WMXXX thread for future use))

That's kinda the point - that's 50k-60k folks coming to the city that aren't from the NOLA area for what usually would be a boring weekend in the city. That's a big land for tourism and something that the city has been trying to get for a few years ever since Vince McMahon decided to start doing stadiums for Wrestlemania.

At least this time if the power goes out, they can at least blame it on The Undertaker since its probably going to be his retirement match.

That awkward moment when the Undertaker comes but everyone thinks it's lights out again.

quote:

- There are reports that a local radio station in New Orleans leaked the news on Wednesday that WWE's WrestleMania 30 will be held there at the Super Dome. An official announcement from WWE was expected at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, also from New Orleans, later this month. PWInsider reported earlier this week that officials continue to go back and forth on the WrestleMania 30 location and that New Orleans was not 100% official yet. There are forces within WWE who believe WrestleMania 30 should be held at Madison Square Garden but more people in the company believe that WWE has already set the standard for holding WrestleMania at big stadiums, plus the argument that the New York area is getting WrestleMania this year.


That was posted yesterday

Lesson learned from this thread: we need more wrestling GIF threads.

Any old school Mid-South wrestlers who may go into the Hall of Fame, who aren't in there already?
