[quote=frankwhite1967;11307214]You don't have to believe me. A simple google search will yield you some results that are not just dirt sheet gossip, mere speculation, or hearsay. I found a nice little tidbit from one of JR's blogs regarding the topic of WM 29 from shortly after the deal was finalized. It seems like he would be a much more of a reliable source than me or you or even the people you say you know that are close to the WWE and work in NY venues. After all, he is a WWE employee and obviously communicates with other WWE employees in the know. And it's just as I've said previously in the other posts. NJ "bought" the WrestleMania package to benefit THEIR economy. This wasn't a joint effort with NY which will still benefit from the all of the events indirectly regardless of where the actual events are being held due to the closeness of the two areas. The way Jim Ross "understands" it is that there will most likely be some media and PR
functions held in NYC but Mania, Axxess, and HOF will ALL be held in Jersey. So short of possibly Raw at MSG on that Monday, it really doesn't look likely that NYC will be hosting any of the main WM activities. And I happen to think Raw will be held at the Izod Center because I'm pretty sure that the Raw following Mania is also part of the package deal that New Jersey "bought". What JR said only makes logical sense to me.
Sorry...I don't recall saying someone close to WWE told me IT WAS gonna be in NY, I said someone close to WWE told me they were LOOKING into NY. Also, JR...JR is the same guy that constantly says "No I'm not coming back to announcing even for one match" and the such just to not let the fans know whats coming. THE ONLY THING HE SAYS I Believe is his opinions on the PAST. Not to mention that was from BEFORE This years Wrestlemania many things could have changed. I also never said 100% it was, I said from everything I understood they were LOOKING at NY venues.
