WrestleMania press conference

NEW YORK — WrestleMania Week is officially upon the New York/New Jersey area. Yet before The Showcase of the Immortals descends upon MetLife Stadium this Sunday, New York’s Radio City Music Hall played host to WWE Superstars, New York and New Jersey officials, as well as assembled members of the media for the annual WrestleMania press conference. Amid hundreds of camera flashes, the star-studded event — which streamed live on WWE.com, the WWE App, Yahoo! YouTube and Facebook — ended with a staredown of epic proportions between WWE Champion The Rock and his main event challenger, John Cena.

Ricardo Rodriguez, on crutches, then introduced his best friend, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio, a mere three days from what the Mexican Superstar described as the most important night of his life. On Sunday, Del Rio will become the first Superstar born and raised in Mexico to defend a World Title at WrestleMania.
