• WrestleMania 34 Breaks Records
WWE announced the following:
“NEW ORLEANS – WWE announced tonight that WrestleMania 34 broke the record for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s highest-grossing entertainment event. WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza grossed $14.1 million, surpassing the venue’s previous record of $10.9 million set by WrestleMania 30 in 2014, as a sold-out crowd of 78,133 fans from all 50 states and 67 countries converged on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
As part of the week-long WrestleMania celebration, WWE will host five consecutive nights of events at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Smoothie King Center.
“New Orleans was extremely proud to make WrestleMania Week part of our Tricentennial celebration,” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “It was so exciting to host WWE fans from around the world who traveled to experience the grandeur of WrestleMania and all that our beautiful city has to offer. Thank you to everyone who makes it possible to stage such an epic event.”
“WrestleMania’s return to New Orleans once again delivered record results,” WWE Executive Vice President of Special Events John Saboor said. “This would not have been possible without the tireless support of Mayor Landrieu and our Local Organizing Committee partners throughout New Orleans. We now look forward to a historic WrestleMania 35 celebration next year in New York and New Jersey.”
WrestleMania 35 takes place on Sunday, April 7, 2019, from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Ticket information will be announced later this year.”

• Identity Of Braun Strowman’s WrestleMania 34 Partner Revealed
As seen during last night’s WrestleMania 34 PPV, “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman went into the crowd and chose “Nicholas” (a young boy) as his tag team partner.
Nicholas is the son of WWE referee Jon Cone. Below is what WWE posted about this team and the possibility of their Title defense:
Will Braun Strowman really defend the Raw Tag Team Titles with a kid named Nicholas?
“In one of the most inexplicable moments in WrestleMania history, Braun Strowman not only picked a young child named Nicholas out of the crowd to be his partner for his Raw Tag Team Championship Match against The Bar at WrestleMania, but he also won the titles with the young man.
Now, with Strowman and Nicholas officially reigning as Raw Tag Team Champions, several questions emerge. Will Nicholas continue to be The Monster Among Men’s tag team partner? And, even if yes, will WWE management allow an innocent kid to compete on Raw?”
