– An art exhibit has been added to WrestleMania weekend with paintings by Jerry Lawler and Vickie Guerrero. Lawler actually â<80><9c>got inâ<80> to the wrestling industry by doing drawings of area pro wrestlers in the late 60s to Lance Russell, the Memphis wrestling TV host.

– Expect to see lots of pyrotechnics during WrestleMania XXIV Sunday. WWE has hired a little over 100 people to work 16 hour days through March 29th to get the Citrus Bowl ready for the show. As we reported earlier a steel roof will be built over the ring so that lights and a video board can hang as well as protect the performers in case of inclement weather.

They are also building dressing rooms outside that will contain air conditioning, showers, and restrooms. Orlando is rumored to bid for WrestleMania again in 2012.
