Exclusive: Early WrestleMania Plans Leaked (HIAC, Pyro)


— We can now confirm that Lilian Garcia and members of the National Guard will be singing “America the Beautiful” to open WrestleMania 28 in Miami on April 1st.

— As of last week, the plan was to open the event with Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk. There was talk over the past week or so that Jericho would cut a promo before the match. The Hell in a Cell match would air somewhere in the middle of the event and The Rock vs. John Cena will headline. Of course, that can easily change.

— It’s likely the Hell in a Cell cage will already be set up and then they’ll roll it out and lift it up and over the ring before the match. We’re still awaiting word from several crew members working on the set as to how they will be going about setting up the cage.

— There is expected to be fireworks shot off during and after the show from a field nearby.

— Crew members from WWE and numerous independent companies began unloading production trucks on Monday. The staff is split into several crews and they are working on a round the clock basis.

— As noted earlier, a photo has been leaked online showing the production set-up of the set for Wrestlemania 28 in Miami at the Sun Life Stadium. The layout shows the outline of the ring entrance and floor seating, as well as initial construction of what will hang over the ring in the stadium.

— According to Weather.com, the weather in Miami, FL is listed as sunny, clear skies on Friday and Saturday for AXXESS. Sunday’s weather projection hasn’t been released yet but temperatures will range between 70-83 degrees.
