A cool video package with the superstars out on the streets of New Orleans.

WrestleMania XXX host Hulk Hogan opened the show proper and hyped up the crowd only the way he can. He was then interrupted by Stone Cold Steve Austin to a huge ovation. He hyped up Hulk Hogan and his accomplishments and then hyped up the crowd like only he can.

Then The Rock interrupted the both of them to a huge pop from everyone. The crowd chanted “This is awesome” before The Rock even spoke. The Rock hyped up his two contemporaries and hit his run of catchphrases while Austin and Hogan looked on. Rock even got Austin to crack up with some of his lines.

The trio then all their catchphrases and shared some beers. That was amazing. That was worth all the money right there. Great moment to start the historic show.

Before the match began, they aired an awesome video package about Bryan and the rivalry set to Imagine Dragons’ “Monster.” WWE did a great job with their video packages for this year’s show.
