Both NBA star Chris Webber and Billy Corgan of the rock band Smashing Pumpkins were backstage at WrestleMania 23 in Detroit. Both are longtime wrestling fans.
According to WWE officials, WrestleMania 23 generated upwards of $30 million of revenue for the city of Detroit. With that being said, the city of Orlando is excited now more than ever and has promised WWE that they will â<80><9c>bend over backwardsâ<80> to help promote next yearâ<80><99>s WrestleMania 24. Several marketing strategies are already being implemented to promote the event all over the metropolitan area.
â<80><9c>The Nature Boyâ<80> Ric Flair is scheduled to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next year. While it is very early and things could definitely change, WWE officials are hoping that Flairâ<80><99>s popularity amongst current WWE fans will help draw interest to next yearâ<80><99>s ceremony.
