WWE WrestleMania XXX: Three Icons Open The Show
The WrestleMania XXX pay-per-view kicks off with a video package with a Mardi Gras theme. We're live from the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans as the fireworks go off. Michael Cole calls WrestleMania the greatest live entertainment event and welcomes us. Justin Roberts introduces tonight's host and out comes Hulk Hogan to a big pop.

Hogan makes his way to the ring and fans start chanting his name. Hogan welcomes us and calls it the Silverdome, not the Superdome. Hogan calls it the Silverdome twice and gets a boo on the second go-round. Hogan realizes he messes up and apologizes. He says he was just thinking about bodyslamming Andre the Giant. Nice save by Hogan. Hogan says some WrestleMania moments will be made tonight when all of a sudden the glass breaks. Out comes Steve Austin to a huge pop.

Austin gets in Hogan's face and asks the crowd for a hell yeah. He jokes that it's good to be in the Silverdome. Austin says usually when he's in a ring at WrestleMania, he's whipping someone's ass. Austin asks if the fans want him to open up a can on Hogan and they do. Austin says they had a good night at the Hall of Fame last night and he sat beside Hogan. Austin names off all the WrestleMania events he saw Hogan kicking ass in and gets a "what?" chant after each one. Austin said watching what Hogan did, he has nothing but respect and appreciates the living hell out of what Hogan did for the business. They shake hands. Hogan asks the crowd for a "hell yeah" for Austin and he gets a huge one. Austin says he wants to talk all night but it's time for the current crop of stars in WWE to come out and do what they do for the fans. Austin says to always remember that Austin 3:16 means I just whipped your ass. The Rock's music hits and out he comes to a huge pop.

The Rock warms up on the stage for a minute before making his way out. He hugs Hogan and Austin before hitting the turnbuckles. Fans chant "this is awesome" as Rock goes to speak. The Rock does his "finally" intro and the crowd pops again. Rock also jokes about the Superdome and laughs with Hogan. Rock says he doesn't see just two of the biggest Legends of all-time, not just two of the biggest icons of all-time, he sees his good buddy Austin and his childhood hero Hogan. Rock says he sees the two biggest names in the history of WWE. Rock talks about how facing them at WrestleMania impacted his career. Rock brings up John Cena and the crowd boos. Rock says Cena wouldn't be here if Hogan wasn't here 29 years ago. Rock brings up Daniel Bryan and a huge "yes!" chant starts. Rock says that doesn't happen unless Austin had the guts to cross the boss and whip his candy ass. Rock says those are facts. Rock jokes about WWE fans having birthdays 9 months after WrestleMania because of his electrifying performances. Rock sings a quick tune about WrestleMania. He says it's an honor to be here. He says it's boots to asses time, if you smell... Austin says that's the bottom line... and Hogan asks what we're gonna do. Hogan gets the Superdome name right this time and his music hits to end it. Austin calls for beers as Rock and Hogan hug. We get a beer bash with Hogan, Austin and Rock as Austin's music hits. Austin calls for more beers and we go to the announcers.
