WrestleMania XXX weekend in New Orleans

In the world of professional wrestling, this is World Wrestling Entertainment's Super Bowl event, so it's kind of hard to believe this is just the first WrestleMania that New Orleans has hosted in the event's 30-year history!

Kelly Schulz with the New Orleans Convention and Visitor's Bureau says that's not the only first for WrestleMania.

"WWE has just launched a new network, and so this WrestleMania is going to be the first WrestleMania to air live on the WWE Network, which will be great publicity for New Orleans," Schulz said.

Just like a Super Bowl or NBA All Star game, WrestleMania means lots of fan events outside the main event, which is Sunday.

"Axxess has started at the Morial Convention Center...a four-day interactive fan festival," said Schulz. "There's a Hall of Fame event Saturday evening, WrestleMania XXX is Sunday evening."

And if that's not enough, Schulz says the road to WrestleMania XXXI begins in New Orleans a day later: "And then there's Monday Night RAW, which happens on Monday, April 7th."
