WrestleMania Set Designer on What to Expect This Year, Golf Tournament Photos, Ryback and Ziggler
– Ryback and Dolph Ziggler are wearing the new Microsoft Band to track their movements and fitness while in California for WrestleMania 31 week. You can track their activity on WWE’s website at this link.
– WWE’s website has an interview with Jason Robinson, the man who designs the sets for WrestleMania events. He commented on what to expect from this year’s set:
“Expect something different from us. The atmosphere being West Coast and daylight presented some very unique challenges for us to overcome. The structure itself isn’t really tied to a particular thing like the city or arena, but we have this really unique thing where we can’t hide anything. We have to be open, [because] everybody’s going to see everything. I can’t do the theater magic and hide the bad parts. So we’ve had to work really hard. Everything had to tie in and feel like it was part of the image and the structure. It’s a unique set, a unique way of lighting the ring because of the sun. You’ll see some different search lights around there, and from a lighting point of view and the set, we’ve had to deal with having full sun on the set because you can’t hide anything. You’ll see it’s a different set from us this year.”
