* NY Giants' John Mara and NY Jets owner Woody Johnson were on hand for the announcement but neither spoke. Governor Chris Christie had a prior commitment but left before the conference was over. Mara and Johnson left as soon as it ended also due to prior commitments.
* The event started 30 minutes late.
* 15 different cities made bids to WWE for the chance to host WrestleMania 29. MetLife Stadium spent three years working to get a WestleMania and almost settled on hosting a SummerSlam before it went to Los Angeles.
* MetLife's outgoing president Mark Lamping said that getting the chance to host WrestleMania was harder than bidding on hosting the Super Bowl.
