According to an Apr. 3 report from NOLA.com, downtown hotels in New Orleans are basically packed to capacity throughout the weekend, due to festivities surrounding Wrestlemania XXX.

70,000 people are expected to be in attendance for Wrestlemania XXX, and 50,000 more will be soaking in the sights and sounds surrounding the event.

Since Wrestlemania XXX is an absolute spectacle, it's not just WWE Universe that will be paying attention to the event. Wrestlemania XXX has massive crossover appeal with sports fans from all different backgrounds, thanks in part to Daniel Bryan's hugely popular "Yes! Movement."

Bryan's appeal has helped the WWE reel in fans that aren't typical pro wrestling supports, so Wrestlemania XXX could be the biggest Wrestlemania ever.

"We expect it to be very, very full between the convention and all of the WWE fans," Kelly Schulz, spokeswoman for the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, said. "It's pretty much selling out the city."

Wrestlemania kick-off show

Wrestlemania XXX is the thirtieth annual Wrestlemania pay-per-view event produced by the WWE, and this year's show could be the promotion's best yet.

The Wrestlemania XXX kick-off show features champs The Usos vs. Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) vs. The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger) vs. Ryback and Curtis Axel in a Fatal-Four Way bout to determine who will walk away with the tag-team championship belt.

The Shield vs. Kane and The New Age Outlaws

Opening the show is an exciting six-man tag-team bout pitting The Shield and Kane against The New Age Outlaws.

Hulk Hogan is scheduled to host the show, so the opening segments could feature a lot from him as well. It has also been announced that Stone Cold Steve Austin will be in attendance at Wrestlemania XXX, although he hasn't confirmed what exactly he'll be doing there.

Andre the Giant battle royal

Two battle royals are slated for the Wrestlemania XXX card, as 14 divas go toe-to-toe in the Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational and 27 men duke it out in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

The participating divas in the divas championship are champ AJ Lee, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Brie Bella, Cameron, Emma, Eva Marie, Layla, Naomi, Natalya, Nikki Bella, Rosa Mendes, Summer Rae and Tamina Snuka.

As for the Andre the Giant battle, 27 of the 30 participants have been announced. They are Alberto Del Rio, Big E, The Big Show, Brad Maddox, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Fandango, Drew McIntyre, Goldust, The Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, R-Truth, Santino Marella, Sin Cara, Titus O'Neil, and Zack Ryder.

There will be three surprise entrants into the battle.

Wrestlemania XXX main card

The Wrestlemania XXX swing fight pits John Cena against Bray Wyatt, and the co-main has Triple H going up against Bryan.

Whoever wins between Triple H and Daniel Bryan gets a spot in the Batista vs Randy Orton match scheduled for Wrestlemania XXX.

In the Wrestlemania XXX main event, The Undertaker puts his undefeated Wrestlemania record on the line against Brock Lesnar.
