Fozzie:  After going to Miami last year for WrestleMania, I said I wanted to go to every WrestleMania moving forward. Looks like I'm headed back gown south again.

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, the New Orleans Saints, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and WWE are proud to announce that New Orleans will host WrestleMania XXX on Sunday, April 6, 2014. (NoDQ for full press release)

Ayers:  The Big Easy...where booze and beads flow, chicks get really drunk and show their goods to random dudes, Super Bowls lose power, and hurricane's no-sell borders and walls.

New Orleans is definitely closer to me than NYC is, and it's a big one.  WrestleMania 30.  I've never been to New Orleans either.  But, as a New Yorker yourself, does it bother you at all that WM30 isn't at Madison Square Garden?  WM1, WM10, WM20 were all there, but WM30 is just too big.

Fozzie:  It did at first, but not so much that I flipped out about it. I would have liked if they could have done 30 here next year and had another arena this year, but whatever. It's a business decision that nobody should be mad about.

Ayers:  We just have to get past the fact that a WrestleMania will not be in a stadium with a capacity under 50,000 for a long time.  Plus, with them going down to New Orleans, it makes me wonder if they are already realizing that having the big event in an open air stadium in the freaking northeast at the tail end of winter is a horrible idea.

I'm worried about freezing my butt off up there, and all the wrestlers having to wear parkas to the ring.  They don't have to worry about that in New Orleans.

With Rock being at the press conference, it is safe to assume he is not done anytime soon.  But the question remains, what other "past stars" will they have show up between now and then?  Is there a chance we FINALLY get a retirement match from the Texas Rattlesnake?

Fozzie:  I don't understand the big deal about the weather. Sure, it may get chilly but it is springtime. If WrestleMania was in February, I could see the issue, but not so much for April. 

As for Austin, it would be great to see him in one more match, but I'd be ok with him calling it a career.

Ayers:  So you are saying I should or shouldn't pack shorts and sunscreen for NY in April?  I know New Orleans is usually getting in the 70s come early April.

So who do you expect to see as the "top guys" for WrestleMania 30?  We know the obvious ones, but who do you think takes the jump and has major matches at the big show in 2014?

Fozzie:  Pack what you want, I'm not your daddy. Well, maybe I am. Who knows?

As for new stars, I can see guys like Cesaro, Rhodes, and maybe Sandow getting huge matches. One thing WWE has been doing right lately is building up their mid card. By next year we should have all new top level guys.

Ayers:  I think it's obvious that Ziggler will be there.  Rhodes or Sandow is possible.  I also wonder how long it will be before the Shield breaks up.  Obviously all three of those men are destined to be big players in the future.  It will be hard for Seth Rollins, but Reigns and Ambrose are just gold mines in the wait.

The thing that was so great about the Attitude Era was that the mid card was so good.  They didn't HAVE to be in the main event but they were on TV every week and it made the secondary titles much better.  Do we hope to see these guys elevated, or would we want to see meaningful stories with them and keep them in the mid card?

Fozzie:  Why not both? There are many guys on  NXT that can take the place of the elevated guys. We are in a transitional phase right now, and I think things will be looking up for awhile.

Ayers:  True.  NXT is deep.  They probably have 10 guys/girls down there that can come up and make an impact.

It's a wait-and-see approach.  We've been expecting to see a bunch of new talent for a while now.  But obviously HHH, Cena, Jericho, Orton, Lesnar, Punk, Rock, and Sheamus can't all continue headlining WrestleManias for the next several years.

I think with most of the "rematches" getting out of the way, WrestleMania 30 could be interesting.  Maybe they'll let some Saints players come in and collect a bounty after taking out a top star like Cena.

Fozzie:  Which Cena would no-sell, of course. Either way, I'm excited to see what is going to happen between now and then.

Ayers:  Yep.  WWE: Where's it's ALWAYS WrestleMania season.  I'm surprised they haven't already announced a match for it yet.

Fozzie:  If they treated the whole year like it was WrestleMania season, that would be awesome.

Ayers:  They could...but that would require better writing, matches, storylines, and buildups.  So that will happen approximately never.

Fozzie:  That makes me a sad bear.

IN OTHER NEWS...

As seen on Raw last night, WWE finally introduced a new design for the WWE title. Gone is the spinner design, and in it's place is, well, I don't know how to describe it, but it has bulls on the side, and you can buy a replica for only $449.99. I don't know how I feel about the design, but I know who hated it: The IWC. The same people who cried for years to get rid of the spinner. You know what the IWC says' "If you're not doing it wrong, you're not doing it right." (WWE.com)

It looks like Y2J needs to take another Y2Break.  Jericho and his band Fozzy have a tour planned of Australia over the next few weeks, so we may not see much of Jericho for the foreseeable future.  He should be back with 3 or 4 weeks of TV buildup for a feud.  Fozzy’s appeal is actually quite big overseas.  Don’t ask me why. (Rajah)

Scott Hall has officially move into Diamond Dallas Page's "Accountability Crib". Now, usually we here at Headlines like to make jokes about real news stories, but in this case, there is no joke, just my sincere wish that Hall finally receives the help he needs and gets cleaned up. (WNW)

It may have not officially started on Raw yesterday, but Ricardo Rodriquez is already taking the first shots at Zeb Colter and MR. ‘MURICA, Jack Swagger:

 

This feud is going to be so racist.  Can't wait.  WOO!
