New Orleans To Host WrestleMania!
The best that the WWE has to offer will finally come to The Big Easy for the Showcase of the Immortals, WrestleMania XXX. New Orleans, one of the greatest and most fun cities in the USA will be hosting WrestleMania XXX on Sunday, April 6, 2014. WWE Superstars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, Alberto Del Rio, Big Show, Mark Henry, Brodus Clay, The Great Khali and WWE Divas Layla, Cameron and Naomi all made special guest appearances for the big announcement today.
“On behalf of our great city, we thank WWE for bringing their largest annual celebration to New Orleans in 2014,” said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “We are proud to have played host to some of the greatest sports and entertainment events in the world over the past two years, and hosting WrestleMania is a great way to continue this unprecedented streak. We look forward to hosting WWE and its global fan base as they celebrate this historic milestone at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.”
“WWE thanks the city of New Orleans and the Saints for welcoming our biggest celebration of the year for the first time to The Big Easy,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman and CEO. “We can’t think of a better city or a more legendary venue than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to host the 30th annual WrestleMania. Let the good times roll.”
WrestleMania is more than just a one day event, it’s a week-long celebration. In addition to WrestleMania XXX, other activities will include: WrestleMania Axxess – WWE’s four-day interactive fan festival at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center; the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony; Monday Night Raw®; WrestleMania Reading Challenge Finals; Be a STAR™ anti-bullying rallies; hospital visits and other pro-social activities designed to give back to the host community.
The pay-per-view event will be televised to more than 100 countries. Last year, WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami generated more than $100 million in economic impact for Miami and Miami-Dade County, a new record for WrestleMania. This year, WrestleMania XXIX takes place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday, April 7.
WrestleMania is always the best event of the year, so congrats goes out to New Orleans for getting their hands on WrestleMania 30. The city did a spectacular job with the Super Bowl, and we can only imagine from witnessing in years past, that the WWE will do what they always do, and deliver a spectacular event in a spectacular city!
