HHH Talks To NY Post About Wrestlemania Being Outdoors, HOF Ceremony At MSG

Bill Pritchard

Triple HTriple H recently sat down with the New York Post to talk about Wrestlemania 29 coming to the New Jersey / New York area, and he spoke on a number of topics including Wrestlemania being outdoors, having the Hall of Fame ceremony at Madison Square Garden and more. Below are a few excerpts from the interview:

On Wrestlemania being outdoors in New York:
Wrestlemania, in the past few years, has been outdoors, but there’s a difference in April 7th in Miami and in New York so it could be a bit nippy. I think for fans it doesn’t make a difference, especially in the New York-area because the majority of fans are used to sitting in the cold watching football or other things. Fans that come in from outside will bring appropriate attire, I’m sure. Football they wear pads and helmets and stuff to keep warm, but guys wrestling in trunks is a bit different. We’ve got it all figured out to have the heating right and make sure that everybody being there is going to have an enjoyable experience. I think that at the end of the day, it’s not going to make a difference where we are, enclosed or open, the atmosphere is going to be the same, it’s going to be electric.

On MSG hosting the Hall of Fame ceremony:
One of the things I’m really excited about is bringing the Hall of Fame to Madison Square Garden. When we were planning all of this, it was a big push. I really wanted it and luckily we were able to have it there. To have the Hall of Fame in Madison Square Garden where all of those greats had those moments from Bruno [Sammartino] on, the nostalgia factor is going to be awesome. It’s one of my favorite parts of the whole week anyway, just seeing those guys honored, it’s going to be awesome. I’m looking forward to the event, I think everyone is going to as well. If you get the opportunity to get your tickets early, do it because you are going to want to sit up close and personal.
