-- Vince McMahon spoke about the first WrestleMania being held at Madison Square Garden during the WrestleMania 29 press conference and said that WrestleMania 29 was "Wrestlemania coming home."

-- As noted earlier, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan were not present for the press conference because they were already scheduled for other media events. Sheamus, Mark Henry and The Bellas were used in order to spotlight the company's different community activist programs like Be a Starr and the Wrestlemania Reading program. All of the talent appearing (except Cena) were also picked because they hadn't been on the long trip to and from Abu Dhabi.
