As usual, Vince McMahon and the WWE have gone all out in creating a set fit for a New York/New Jersey-themed evening at WrestleMania 29.

As the performers enter the stadium, they will head toward the ring in a setting that features the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and Empire State Building. The set was revealed Friday on YouTube by McMahon in his typical bombastic style.

 

In addition to the cast of WWE Superstars, headed up by The Rock, John Cena, CM Punk and The Undertaker, there will be musical performances by Diddy and Living Colour.

On Saturday, the WWE will hold its Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Legends Bruno Sammartino and Mick Foley will be honored, as well as Donald Trump.

For those attending, the forecast calls for a daytime high of 62 and a low of 50 with a 20 percent chance of rain.
