The Show opened with a look at Hurricane Sandy. It was tough to see the devastation. I had several good friends who were affected by the storm. Thankfully, they are all still with us and either watching this show or reading our coverage. Bless you, my friends…my family. Governor Chris Christie welcomed everyone, by audio, to Wrestlemania.
The Met Life Stadium was seriously packed. The National Guard had over a dozen US flags waving.
No National Anthem? Odd.
