A legendary kickoff to The Showcase of the Immortals

We knew WrestleMania 30 would be historic, but no one expected the explosive introduction that occurred in New Orleans. What better way to open The Showcase of the Immortals than with three of WWE’s most distinguished legends?

The host of WrestleMania, Hulk Hogan, started the festivities by welcoming the WWE Universe to the historic 30th edition of The Show of Shows. Though the WWE Hall of Famer made the mistake of branding the Mercedes-Benz Superdome the “Silverdome,” the blunder didn’t ruin the moment.

While having “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan opening the show would suffice on most evenings, this night demanded more. And more the WWE Universe would receive. The sound of glass shattering sparked a frenzy among the crowd of 75,167 strong. As “Stone Cold” Steve Austin familiarized himself to The Hulkster, the WWE Universe hung on every word.

The Texas Rattlesnake gave Hogan a playful jab after his earlier slip-up, and the two WWE Hall of Famers agreed that they both are deserving of their place in WWE history. If the stage wasn’t already grand enough, it was The Rock’s turn to join the WrestleMania Moment.

The arrival of The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment only broadened what was already an explosive launch to an historic night. The People’s Champion — not one to miss an opportunity to relish in the moment — also poked fun at Hogan’s earlier gaffe. However, the red-and-yellow-laced WWE Hall of Famer took the verbal jabs in stride, declaring WrestleMania 30 open for business. Following a legendary cheers, The Showcase of the Immortals was full speed ahead.
