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.
We'll see, I know what I have heard, both from people close to WWE and people who work in NY, and the fact that its being promoted as WWE Wrestlemania NY/NJ obviously means NY is playing JUST as big a roll as NJ. Also if RAW is in NY, HOF is in NY they already have the building set up the only thing they have to do is build a ring, bring in the ramp and flip floor chairs. Like I said we'll see, but I am going to believe people close to WWE, and THAT WORK in NY venues that have been looked at, before I do someone on here.
