It began with an idea: partner with a talented local broadcasting organization and put together some flashy video from some of the fan events leading up to Sunday’s Wrestlemania 34. It took a few weeks to nail down the logistics and final plan, but we found a great partner in Fox 8 WVUE New Orleans, and came up with some pretty compelling video at Wrestlemania AXXESS Day 2, pitting WWE Superstars like The New Day (comprised of Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods), Mickie James, Corey Graves and brand-spanking new Hall of Famer Mark Henry against our local junior journalist Chris Taylor, and Fox 8’s live reporter, Rob Krieger.
Nothing says fan “AXXESS” like getting international stars to get schooled by a high school journalist.
The Superstars were all pretty good sports, especially Mickie (check out 1:44 in the video)! We couldn’t have done it without their generosity of spirit, and the generosity of mentors in Matthew Davis, Olivia Acuña and Nick Boulet. A great day for all!
