[WWE News] Wrestlemania XXX Date and Location Officially Announced

wm30 logo

In a press conference held earlier in the day WWE officially announced that the 30th edition of its flagship event Wrestlemania will take place on April 7, 2014 from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Joining Mayor Mitch Landrieu for the big announcement were Chairman Vince McMahonJohn Cena, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, The Rock, Alberto Del Rio, The Big Show, Mark Henry, The Great Khali, Brodus ClayThe Funkadactyls, and Layla. To watch the entire conference, click the link provided earlier in the article.

Being that New Orleans has long been rumored to be the location this probably doesn’t come as much of a shock to anyone who bfrequents the bevy of news sites on the internet. But it’s still nice to finally have it be official. And much respect to the WWE for keeping the Roman numerals for the official logo; it’s going to be unfortunate when this time next year everyone is going to make the “LOL TRIPLE X MEANS PORN” joke. Be prepared.

With one week to go until Elimination Chamber, this episode of Raw was all about building to this Sunday’s PPV…in between all of the filler. On this week’s show the final spots in the Elimination Chamber match were filled, Jack Swagger debuted a potentially awesome manager/mouthpiece, Paul Heyman and CM Punk have an emotional moment, and WWE Champion The Rock returned to hype up his match this Sunday and, erm, tell a story about a Nashville crackhead he bought a car from.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 2/4/2013

raw-recap

The end of last week’s Raw saw not only proof that Paul Heyman has been working with The Shield this entire time, but also heralded the return of Brock Lesnar who ended last Monday taking WWE Chairman Vince McMahon out with the F-5. Heyman has a lot to answer for this week and he will start right at the beginning as a guest on The Miz’s talk show “MizTV”. What will Heyman have to say? Will Lesnar and/or The Shield appear? And, perhaps most importantly, what does now former WWE Champion CM Punk think about all of this? Those are the big stories going into this week’s show. Also on the docket Punk will continue to build his Elimination Chamber rematch against the man who usurped him The Rock and the personal feud between World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio and The Big Show will continue to build. Smackdown GM Booker T also has a big decision to make in regards to who will be entered in the “Elimination Chamber” in two weeks. The winner will get a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship come Wrestlemania 29 so it is not a decision to take lightly.

20130121_LIGHT_raw_roulette_C

One night after the historic end of the Royal Rumble, WWE presents Raw live from Las Vegas, Nevada. Naturally, with Vegas being the gambling capital of the world, theme for tonight’s show is the “RAW Roulette” which will decide the stipulations for the matches (and other stuff). Tonight will also be Vince McMahon‘s “evaluation” of adviser Paul Heyman as well as appearances by Rumble winner John Cena and the men involved in last night’s main event: CM Punk and the man who beat him for the championship, The Rock.
