Here we are just a few weeks away from "The Showcase of the Immortals," and even though the WWE doesn't have the entire card set for the event, it appears that the set is just about ready to go.
Ultimately, the WWE has a history of doing an outstanding job of making sure the stage leading to the ring is fitting for the event that it is holding.
And this year appears to be no different as SEScoops.com reports:
Check out these pictures of the early stages of the WrestleMania 29 set, including a huge Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building. The set is being manufactured by Rod Wraps in Miami, FL and are being shipped to New York this week.
Overall, the WWE has a huge stadium to fill and should be giving everyone in attendance a larger-than-life setup. Keep in mind, we aren't talking about a hockey arena here, we are talking about MetLife stadium. This outdoor venue is not only huge in stature, but it also seats more than 82,000 people and serves as home turf for both the New York Jets and Giants.
If that's not intimidating enough, this stadium is located just across the river from "The Big Apple," which also happens to be in Vince McMahon's backyard. So making this event huge is a must for the company.
I for one am hopeful that the WWE can make this year’s event as good as last year's. Don't get me wrong, I realize Rock-Cena II will not be as big of a draw as the first go-around. However, there is something to be said for a strong undercard, and if the WWE can pull that off, this should be a memorable pay-per-view.
In the end, I am excited to see what will unfold in the weeks ahead, as I am certain the company will pull out all of the stops to ensure WrestleMania 29 goes off without a hitch.
