In an interview with The Boston Herald, Ric Flair, Daniel Bryan and others commented on thirty years of Wrestlemania. Here are highlights:
Ric Flair on Vince McMahon: "WrestleMania is what it is because of Vince. He's made this the Mecca of Sports Entertainment."
Jim Ross on how hard Vince works: "Vince doesn't go to ball games, golf, or any of that rich-guy stuff. He just works, and nobody works harder than him. He's always had that unrelenting work ethic, and I think a lot of it stems from his father. His father was such an iconic figure in the wrestling business. Vince idolized his father from afar, and he wanted to do anything he could to draw favor from his dad. When his dad reluctantly allowed Vince to get into the wrestling business, that overwhelming work ethic kicked in."
Daniel Bryan on his own Wrestlemania goals: "I'd like to go out on Monday Night Raw on the day after WrestleMania and start a new era with guys who can go out in the ring and perform. John Cena and Randy Orton are great performers, but so are Cesaro and The Shield. It's time to give some new guys some new opportunities."
