– During WrestleMania week, the WWE contingent stayed at the Marriott Westchase hotel, which is about 45 minutes from Reliant Stadium. Company officials kept the location far away from the stadium to keep fans away, and only a few fans found out about it. Additionally, the annual WrestleMania after-party was kept tight, with talent limited to being able to bring one guest.
– Bruce Prichard, who now works for John Bradshaw Layfield’s company Layfield Energy as a Vice President, and was part of the production process at the vast majority of WrestleManias, was at this year’s event as a spectator as he lives in the area.
– Natalya has posted a blog on the WWE Universe site discussing her first experience at WrestleMania and how great it is to be representing another generation of Harts at the annual pay-per-view spectacular.
“Now for the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, I felt like I took it full circle for my family…I represented the third generation of Harts, and carried the torch my grandfather passed on to his sons, and now to his grandchildren. I did it, and I never doubted I would,” Natalya wrote. “When I started, I don’t think anyone would have ever expected me to make it as far as I did…and here I am doing extroardinary things, every single day. Just competing, performing and entertaining in a ring, with some of the greatest women wrestlers in the world, made me really proud of myself, how far I have come…and how far I am about to go.”
