With WrestleMania 29 being held at MetLife Stadium, an outdoor venue, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on April 7, 2013, the potential for inclement weather is something WWE has always had to keep its eye on. After all, it's not exactly sunny and 70-degrees in the upper northeast this time of year.
In fact, the current forecast calls for a high of just 56 and a low of 40 by the time the main event matches come rolling around.
Naturally, this is something the wrestlers are having to take into account. To that end, Big Show -- who will wrestle in a six-man tag match alongside Randy Orton and Sheamus against The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns) -- brought it up himself when asked about working in front of the New York area crowd in a recent interview with SI's Extra Mustard:
"New York and New Jersey fans are like no other fans anywhere in the world. It's funny because New York is known for being competitive. New York likes champions. If you're not pulling your weight, New York lets you know. Trust me: If you have a crappy match, New York fans will let you know right in the middle of it. They'll chant boring. They'll chant you suck. They'll chant you messed up. The pressure to do well is always a little bit higher in New York. But like anything, that pressure makes you better. So the only thing that I'm a little concerned about is the weather. Because, you know, I'm not wearing much. I'm wearing Spandex. It's gonna be a little chilly out there."
Weather should be the last thing on anyone's mind leading into such a major event but that's the reality of the situation here. It's almost odd to think of it but it should be interesting to see what, if any, wardrobe changes will happen thanks to the potentially low temperatures.
