WrestleMania XXX was special. It was an emotional rollercoaster. Daniel Bryan won two matches in the same night while Connor the Crusher was watching at ringside; and of course, the Undertaker lost to end the streak.
I wonder why Mania is back in NOLA after just 4 years. Is it for economic reasons? Did the Showcase of the Immortals really bring that much revenue to the city and vice versa to the WWE? There were also feedback from the fans that New Orleans was such a great city to host WrestleMania week. Everyone felt safe and there was a lot to do in Bourbon Street and beyond. But at the end of the day, money talks and the highest bidder always wins.
It has been 15 years since WrestleMania was celebrated outside US soil. WrestleMania X8 emanated from the SkyDome in Toronto, Canada. When will we be able to see ‘Mania go beyond the US of A again?
In my opinion, Vince McMahon envisions the WWE brand as an America-first product. Mr. McMahon wants to help produce jobs within the United States instead of outsourcing them to other countries.
Time will tell until we see an Australian or British WrestleMania.
