How Much Did WrestleMania's Set Cost?

There's a new article posted on NJ.com that states workers involved with building WWE's stage and set for WrestleMania 29 and Axxess earned approximately $1.4 million in gross salaries and benefits. 450 people, some as far away as Cleveland, benefitted financially from WWE's annual mega-event coming to their area this year.

The Rock Update

The RockThe Rock told media in Europe recently that he'll be filming the new Hercules movie for 18 weeks, from the middle of May to October. If The Rock plans to work SummerSlam this year, the movie schedule would likely prevent him from doing much TV or WWE appearances to help promote the event.

Prior to his injury and some new rumors surfacing that WWE and Rock might have had some sort of falling out at WrestleMania, it was expected that Rock would return to work the SummerSlam pay per view. The original plans also had him working the upcoming Extreme Rules pay per view, but that no longer appears to be the case either.
