WrestleMania 31 set designer: Expect 'something different' this year

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports has a fascinating interview up with a man whose name you may not know: Jason Robinson. He's the guy in charge of designing the stage set ups for each year's WrestleMania event. Considering it's the biggest show of the year, that's no small task.

So what are we in store for this year at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California?

"Expect something different from us. The atmosphere being West Coast and daylight presented some very unique challenges for us to overcome. The structure itself isn't really tied to a particular thing like the city or arena, but we have this really unique thing where we can't hide anything. We have to be open, [because] everybody's going to see everything. I can't do the theater magic and hide the bad parts. So we've had to work really hard. Everything had to tie in and feel like it was part of the image and the structure. It's a unique set, a unique way of lighting the ring because of the sun. You'll see some different search lights around there, and from a lighting point of view and the set, we've had to deal with having full sun on the set because you can't hide anything. You'll see it's a different set from us this year."

Just a couple days until we get to see for ourselves.
