Wrestlemania 33 brings the smackdown to Camping World Stadium


A 33, RIGHT? AMANDA: FUN, ABSOLUTELY. IT IS A PRETTY WILD SCENE INSIDE CAMPING WORLD STADIUM. WRESTLEMANIA DOES EVERYTHING BIG, AND WITH LOTS OF DRAMA, AND THAT IS STILL GOING ON RIGHT NOW. THE NIGHT HAS FEATURED EVERYTHING FROM A FLYOVER BY MILITARY JETS TO LOTS OF FIREWORKS TO, OF COURSE, ALL OF THE BIGGEST WWE STARS TAKING TO THE RING. THE THEME FOR WRESTLEMANIA WAS A ROLLERCOASTER RIDE, AND THE OVER 70,000 FANS WHO PACKED INTO CAMPING WORLD STADIUM ACTED AS IF THEY WERE ON A THRILL RIDE. [CHEERS] AMANDA: FOR THE WWE, TONIGHT WAS THEIR SUPERBOWL SUNDAY, AND PEOPLE CAME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO SEE THE SHOW. >>BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME. [LAUGHTER] AMANDA: THESE THREE FRIENDS HAD A TRIP TO WRESTLEMANIA IN THE WORKS FOR YEARS. DUSTIN REEDY: IT’S A BUCKET LIST THING. WE’VE ALL BEEN FRIENDS SINCE WE’VE BEEN IN COLLEGE. WE TALKED ABOUT COMING THIS, AND WE DECIDED LET’S GO. AMANDA: THE TICKETS TO THE SOLD OUT EVENT WEREN’T CHEAP. THE SEATS CLOSEST TO THE STAGE WENT FOR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, BUT THOSE FANS ALSO GOT TO TAKE THOSE SEATS HOME WITH THEM AS MEMORABILIA. THE WRESTLEMANIA SET WAS OVER THE TOP WITH ROLLER-COASTER LIGHTING, A LONG RAMP TO THE MAIN STAGE, AND PLENTY OF PYROTECHNICS. SUNDAY NIGHT’S MATCHES WERE BROADCAST TO THE WORLD AS A PAY PER VIEW EVENT AND ARE THE HIGHLIGHT OF A WEEK OF WRESTLEMANIA EVENTS ESTIMATED TO BRING $125 MILLION INTO THE LOCAL ECONOMY. IT’S A POP CULTURE PHENOMENON WITH A GROWING FAN BASE, INCLUDING PLENTY OF WOMEN.>>THE DIVA DIVISION IS ACTUALLY REALLY COOL. I GOT IMPRESSED WHAT THEY DO. I AM LIKE, THAT IS AMAZING. AMANDA: NOW THE WRESTLEMANIA , EVENTS CONTINUE THROUGH THURSDAY — TUESDAY. THEY HAVE USED QUITE A FEW EVENTS VENUES HERE INCLUDING THE AMWAY CENTER AND THE ORANGE COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER. AS FOR WHEN TONIGHT’S EVENT WILL WRAP UP, WE HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WILL BE AROUND 11:00 OR MIDNIGHT. SO IF YOU ARE DRIVING THROUGH DOWNTOWN AT THAT HOUR, KEEP IN MIND THERE COULD BE TRAFFIC.
