Expected Attendance For WrestleMania XXX, The Shield Getting Rave Reviews Backstage

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

- The all-time attendance record for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is 78,344 for the 1997 Sugar Bowl game, however the building has been reconfigured since then. A sellout for the New Orleans Saints football team is 73,209. For a WrestleMania, since so much of the stadium is blocked off for the stage and other production equipment (more than what they make up by having seats on the field), a legitimate estimate of how many fans they can accommodate will be around 65,000 fans. WWE typically exaggerates the WrestleMania attendance by up to 10,000 to announce they have broken the venue's all time record.

- Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have been getting rave reviews behind the scenes in WWE. All three members of The Shield are seen as having breakout potential, with Reigns having the look and intensity of a top tier guy, Rollins being a great worker and Dean Ambrose having the "it" factor that sets him apart from everybody else. Ambrose has been given the strong compliment of compared to a modern day Terry Funk.
