New York may play some minor part in the weekend and possibly even host the Raw or Smackdown event following Mania but my guess is Axxess, HOF, WrestleMania, and Raw will all be held in Jersey. That ensures that the hotels, restaurants, stores, workers, cab drivers, etc. in Jersey will reap the revenue benefits of bringing Mania in for the whole week. It would defeat the purpose of the weekend by having events spread throughout 2 different states. While logistically NJ and NY are very close together and easy to get to and from, Jersey got the deal done and it only makes sense that everything will take place within that state's limits. I guess time will tell but I wouldn't count on any of the major WrestleMania activities to take place in NY.
Id bet you anything that AXXES is at the Javits Center in Manhattan. Raw or Smackdown will be at IZOD or Prudential. I think they do Hall of Fame and Raw at MSG. Knicks and Rangers are in the prime part of their schedule then but just give one of them a Sunday home game.
NJ gets the main show obviously but theyre going to go to Manhattan any chance they get. Raw at MSG would be a ridiculous crowd.
