The world is less than 2 hours away from WWE WrestleMania XXX. The show will be held live from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Each year WrestleMania is positioned as the premier event in American pro wrestling.

WrestleMania has become almost as synonymous as WWE or The Rock or Hulk Hogan in regards to casual professional wrestling lingo. Even though WWE now churns out twelve pay per views a year, WrestleMania still holds the highest regard amongst all of its events.

That rings true not just in WWE, but in other wrestling organizations as well. Other companies (such as Ring of Honor and Dragon Gate USA) specifically set up events wherever WrestleMania is held just to feed of the fan frenzy, regardless of whether they have ever run in that area of the country previously. Conventions spring up and wrestling old-timers come out of the woodwork for a chance to be apart of pro wrestling’s biggest week of the year.

WWE’s creative team peaks during this period from Royal Rumble until WrestleMania. Starting at the Royal Rumble, it officially becomes “The Road to WrestleMania” in company canon. The booking gets tightened up, the best stories are created and the best rivalries of the year are put together to make the best product.

And as evident this past month there was no exhaustive WrestleMania countdown like there was in 2009, 2010 or 2011. However, as has become customary here is a full-blown preview for each of the eight matches signed for WrestleMania XXX.

Tonight’s (?) card is littered with multi-person matches and high-stakes stipulations but the majority of the WWE’s main roster will be represented. Find out the who, what and why for each match just hours before things get rolling in New Orleans.
