wweIf you see some big, muscular manchos walking around the Mercedes Benz Superdome next year, it might not be the New Orleans Saints or an opponent.  

 

 

Instead, it just might be competitors and their fans of WrestleMania XXX which will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, April 6, 2014.

In an All-Star press conference today, WWE announced the really big one for the city, its 30th anniversary birthday party in New Orleans.

“We are happy to announce that New Orleans will host WWE’s premiere event, WrestleMania XXX, right here in the dome on April 6, 2014,” said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu at the conference, which took place at the Superdome itself. “This is just an unbelievable experience for us. WWE and New Orleans are going to be a perfect match. We are a perfect city for sports-entertainment; I don’t think anybody does it better than us.”

“WrestleMania is a celebration; it’s what we do,” said Mr. McMahon. “People from all over the world come to New Orleans and they’re going to celebrate the grandeur, the spectacular nature of WrestleMania.  That’s what WrestleMania is, and there’s no town in the world that personifies celebration more than New Orleans.”

Included in the celebration were members of the New Orleans tourism and sports industry including Rita Benson Leblanc, New Orleans Saints owner and vice chairman; Stephen Perry, President of New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau; Jay Cicero, CEO of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation; and Alan Freeman, general manager of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena.

As a special treat, Rock led the media to a couple of swings of  “When the Saints Go Marching In.”

Along with WrestleMania XXX itself, the New Orleans will host WrestleMania Axxess, the annual, four-day fan festival, and other major WWE events.
