Big payday for WrestleMania workers

Apr 20, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

NJ.COM is reporting that local workers who were involved in helping with
setting up WrestleMania and Axxess earned around $1.4 million in gross
salaries and benefits. A total of 450 people helped in setting up the huge
set at the MetLife Stadium, transformed the IZOD Center for Axxess, and
then set up for RAW, with workers coming in even as far as Cleveland to
help out. “We ran out of people in New Jersey,” International Alliance of
Theatrical Stagehand President Kevin O’Brien said. Between all Axxess
events, Hall of Fame, WrestleMania, and RAW, WWE fans bought more than
140,000 tickets during the weekend.
