WrestleMania 29, the pay-per-view (PPV) event of the year, takes place LIVE TONIGHT (Sunday, April 7, 2013) outdoors from the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This massive outdoor stadium on the East Coast of the US will house the event which will feature just under a dozen WWE Superstar Matches.
Major matches hitting the card later on into the evening, as the temperatures are forecasted to drop and the air dampens, will include:The Rock vs. John Cena, Undertaker vs. CM Punk, and Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar. Will the weather forecast play a role in the outcomes or match quality?
From the crowd response, to the Superstars mindset and movesets, to the production crews, will the possibility of rain or the slowly dropping temps as the night progresses alter the overall experience?
With those questions in mind, let's take a look at the current forecast [via Weather Underground -- as of 4 a.m. ET, Apr. 7]:
Temperature(°F) 58° / Dew Point: 31 / Humidity 35%
Wind (mph): 14mph South (180°)

What say you Cagesiders, do you think the cooler temps as the night progresses will affect the later matches on the card, like Rock vs. Cena? In the event it sprinkles or rains on top of the cooler temps, how do you think it might affect the crowd and the Superstars by the end of the event?
