Here are the details from WWE's press conference where they announced WrestleMania 30 would be in New Orleans. It took place at 12pmET today at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

- There was a long video package where WWE focused on their use of celebrities as well as their charitable work.

- Brodus Clay danced on the stage along with the Funkadactyls. It's funny because the audience is mostly adults. It was just awkward. 

- The mayor of New Orleans Mitch Landrieu thanked a bunch of people for this event taking place. He talked about how they did Mardi Gras, the Super Bowl and then Mardi Gras again recently. He talked about other events they will be holding in the New Orleans Superdome. 

He announced that WWE will host WrestleMania 30 on Sunday April 6, 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. 

- Vince McMahon was introduced. He hugged the mayor on the stage. He was walking around fine after recent hip surgery. 

He said WWE is all about having fun. He said they "put smiles on people's faces all over the globe every day." McMahon used a famous New Orleans phrase to end his brief speech although he chose to say it in English: "Let the good times roll." He only spoke for about two minutes. 

- The owner of the New Orleans Saints, Rita Benson Leblanc was next to speak. Her dad Tom Benson was the owner, so it's been in their family for many years. She talked about how it was a secret that they were holding WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans, so she's glad that they can share the news. It wasn't much of a secret. Sorry Rita. She talked up New Orleans as a great city and thanked everybody for being there. 

- R-Truth was there. He sang his "What's Up" song in front of the audience filled with adults. I doubt more than three people said "what's up" when he asked them to say it. He sure tried, though. 

- The GM of the Superdome Alan Freeman was next up. He talked about how Elimination Chamber at the New Orleans Arena had a sellout with over 13,000 tickets on Sunday. He spoke about previous venues that held WrestleManias over the years that are also NFL cities like them. 

They first applied to get a WrestleMania in 2009. In late 2011 they went to WWE's headquarters in Connecticut. Vince McMahon told them they got it. Freeman mentioned that they were told not to say anything about it and that it was 15 months ago when they knew. He said they're excited about WrestleMania in New Orleans and thanked Vince McMahon for bringing it there.

- Stephanie McMahon was the next person to speak. She commented that her "all grown up now" song was her old song, but that she's been grown up for a while now. Her official title is "Executive Vice President of Creative." She talked about how Drew Brees tweeted about WM30 in New Orleans on Friday and how that got a big reaction. She said the most important thing to WWE is giving back to the city they're in.

She talked about superstars and divas talking at schools about anti-bullying, they will visit hospitals, thye will have a Make-A-Wish celebration and participate events in the community. She echoed the Vince McMahon line about putting smiles on people's faces. She said it will be a party 30 years in the making. 

- Stephen Perry was next up. He works for the city of New Orleans and planning events in the area. He said they love welcoming tens of thousands of people to their city. He said he was nervous sitting across from Vince McMahon. But when they were done they had big smiles on their faces. He thanked WWE for bringing WrestleMania there. 

- The WWE Champion The Rock was the next person to speak. He had the WWE Championship with him. He talked about his roots with the city from all the shows he's had over the years. Rock mentioned shooting the GI Joe film there. He spoke about when he was 20 years competing for the college football National Championship in the Superdome. They lost to Albama. He said playing in that game in New Orleans was an amazing experience that he'll never forget.

Rock spoke about the WrestleMania experience saying that it's unbelievable for the fans. He talked about how how WrestleMania will be an economical success for New Orleans, but it will be a fun event too. He ended it by singing "when the Saints go marching in" and some people at the press conference joined in.

- The final guest is John Cena. He spoke about how on April 6, 2014 it will be the 30th birthday of WrestleMania. Cena talked about how the Superdome is a global icon just like the city of New Orleans is a global icon. He must like that phrase. Cena said they had the greatest form of entertainment in the world. He said they'll show the world that there's no better place than right there in New Orleans. 

Cena said that in person WrestleMania will give people from around the world a fun experience in New Orleans. He said when WWE comes there in 2014 they will give the city of New Orleans an experience worthy of a celebration.

When Cena was done talking, The Rock walked up to him with the WWE Title in his hand. They shook hands. Then they looked out towards the press, who was taking pictures of them. That doesn't mean it's a match at WrestleMania 30. It's the main event match at WrestleMania 29. 

After it was over, other WWE performers went onto the stage including Big Show, Mark Henry, Alberto Del Rio, R-Truth, Layla, Brodus Clay, Cameron, Naomi and The Great Khali as well. 

I know that Triple H was announced for the event, but he did not appear on camera.

The press conference lasted 45 minutes. No Great Khali promo? For shame!
