EXPERIENCING THE HAPPENING WRESTLEMANIA 34 LIVE IN NEW ORLEANS, LA

By Happening Heads - October 11, 2019

Paul Coelho has rightly quoted, "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve." This is what happened with me when I was crowned as the winner by Sony Pictures Network India Pvt. Ltd. and gratified with a golden opportunity of experiencing the happening WrestleMania 34 LIVE in New Orleans, LA!

I still remember the evening of 12th March, 2018 when I was scrolling through my mailbox and received a mail from Sony Pictures Network India popped-up randomly out of nowhere. I was galvanized to know that they are actually gonna fly 2 lucky winners of the contest to New Orleans in order to witness all the action of WrestleMania 34 so I took no time in answering the question posted by them but after watching thousands of responses on the tweet and considering the fact that they are gonna select the winners through the lucky draw, I hardly had any hopes, to be honest! But Sony Pictures Network India Pvt. Ltd. Proved me wrong by choosing me as one of the 2 lucky winners on 2nd April, 2018. I was literally jumping in joy because I was about the witness one of the biggest wrestling events which meant even more to me considering the fact that I was one among the 90s kids, who used to ardently watch WWF (Well that is what WWE used to be back then) in the evening.

After more than 25 hours of traveling including a change of flight, I finally reached New Orleans on a bright sunny Friday afternoon. I wasted no time and quickly boarded an Airport Shuttle to the hotel with 'WWE Hall of Fame' ceremony on cards, which was scheduled later in the day.

Post a much-needed shower, I quickly got ready, collected my weekend tickets from the hotel reception and headed to the 'Smoothie King Center' to attend the prestigious WWE Hall of Fame event where I got an opportunity to watch various WWE Superstars and Legends including Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Hillbilly Jim, Jeff Jarrett, Jarrius "JJ" Robertson and the mini version of The Rock who was a celebrity inductee for the event! I was literally spell-bounded watching all of them and what added to the awesomeness was watching the Class of 2018 enshrining into the WWE Hall of Fame. I wouldn't have asked for a better welcome from New Orleans than this, being a die-hard WWE fan!

After completing a good night sleep, I was all pumped up for an amazing Saturday with a couple of marvelous events lined up ahead in the day. I made my way to the New Orleans Convention Center to attend the biggest interactive WWE fan event of the year - WWE Fan Axxess, where I was blessed with a golden chance to interact with WWE stars, click pictures with them and get autographs from them. It was certainly a great session and meeting the wrestlers whom we love watching in action on our TV sets was indeed a noteworthy experience.



It was time for NXT TakeOver later that evening for which I headed back to the Smoothie King Center. It was finally time to witness the wrestling action and I was certainly high on the excitement for the same. 5 matches were contested at the event but what caught everyone's attention at the arena was the main event in which Johnny Gargano defeated Tomasso Ciampa in an Unsanctioned match and was reinstated to NXT. That specific match-up also received a 5-star rating from the known wrestling journalist, Dave Meltzer and witnessing it live, I can confirm the worthiness of the same! I would like to admit that throughout 3 and half hours of this event, my mind was constantly thinking that if NXT TakeOver is so thrilling to watch, imagine how power-packed WrestleMania is gonna be - which confirmed that I'm surely gonna have a sleepless night ahead with my head buzzing with the excitement!



The rising sun of Sunday morning brought a new ray of hope and energy as I was about to live my dream of watching the 34th edition of WWE's most renowned event!




I sat down to check my social media profiles while sipping a cup of hot piping coffee and all I could see is WrestleMania 34 trending all over, such was the excitement among the WWE fans across the globe. Even the city of New Orleans was influenced with the epidemic of this grand wrestling event and I figured it out when I had gone out for breakfast, where everyone was either discussing about their childhood memories associated with WWE or which all matches are they excited to see in WrestleMania 34. The WWE fan in me was certainly in a comfort zone that time!




I decided to head towards the Mercedes Benz Superdome in the early afternoon since the doors for fan entry were scheduled to open at 2:30 PM and considering the fact that WrestleMania pre-show was gonna start at 4:30 PM and the expected attendance for the event was sky high, I didn't want to get trapped in the sea of crowd outside the arena and miss even a bit of this grand event. The pre-show lasted for a couple of hours and was much-needed to get the audience in motion before the WrestleMania 34 kicks-off!

My waiting woes came to an end as the clock strike 7'o clock in the evening and the WrestleMania 34 was finally underway. Words aren't enough to describe the feeling of being one among the lucky fans who were blessed with an opportunity to witness this wrestling extravaganza in front of their eyes.



I can proudly say that I got to witness some of the best matches at WrestleMania 34 including Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns, Kurt Angle vs Triple H & Stephanie McMahon, AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura, Charlotte Flair vs Asuka, The Miz vs Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor and much more! As a big fan of Brock Lesnar and follower of his significant career, watching him retain the Universal Championship with his fierce wrestling skills certainly made my day in true sense.

I was accompanied with 59,899 fellow WWE fans who had traveled from various parts of the world like me who made sure that the atmosphere at Mercedes Benz Superdome stays electrifying till the end.

The time to bid adieu to New Orleans had arrived. After spending 3 good days and being part of miscellaneous WWE events, I was surely carrying an extra baggage of memories with me on my way to India which I will treasure for life. Also, I would like to thank Sony Pictures Network and WWE for providing me with this privileged experience which meant a lot being a WWE fanatic since I was a kid.
