About this entry

Each year, WWE WrestleMania descends on its host city bringing hundreds of thousands from the WWE Universe to celebrate the biggest event of the year, available worldwide on pay-per-view and, for the first time ever, on WWE Network, our over-the-top 24/7 streaming digital network.

The goal of WWE's social campaign and coverage around WrestleMania 30, held April 7, 2014 at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. La., was to showcase the culture and energy of the historic host city, combined with the passion that our WWE Superstars, Divas, and fans demonstrate around our annual flagship event.

In addition to the WWE Social Team's on-the-ground live coverage using Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and increased digital coverage of WrestleMania week events around the New Orleans area, WWE rolled out the numerous digital and social media initiatives to bring our fans closer to the action.
