” The Grid Iron Classic ” is the NFL’s grandest stage. Much like WrestleMania is the WWE’s grandest stage. These two events have a lot more in common than one might think.
One of the major similarities is the championships. Many players in the National Football League have dreamed their entire lives about raising the Lombardi Trophy high and being called, champion.
The majority of sports entertainers in World Wrestling Entertainment have dreamed their entire lives of hearing the ring announcer said, “ and NEW WWE CHAMPION…”.
Being champion is the reason people pursue these types of careers. Other than their passion for the sport, becoming a champion is the ultimate goal.
Speaking of the players, many NFL stars have gone on to wrestle professionally for the WWE.
Dwayne “ The Rock ” Johnson, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Bill Goldberg, Roman Reigns, and Lawrence Taylor are a handful of names on that list.
Celebrities come out in droves for these events. The Big Game’s 45th ( XLV ) edition was witnessed in person by Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Kim Kardashian, and Legend including numerous others.
WrestleMania 31 was seen live and in person by, Vernon Davis, Ronda Rousey, Michelle Beadle, and Maria Menounos among others.
” The NFL‘s Final Championship Game ” and WrestleMania are often held in the same venues.
- ” Gambler’s Delight ” 45 ( XLV ) and WrestleMania 32 were both in AT&T Stadium. Home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
- ” Super Duper Bowl ” 34 ( XXXVI ) and WrestleMania 30 were both held in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Home of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.
- ” Commercial Break Bowl ” 50 and WrestleMania 31 were both held at Levi’s Stadium. Home to the NFL’s San Francisco 49’ers.
And the list goes on and on the farther back in time you go.
” The Last Football Game Until August ” and WrestleMania have been around for decades. They are the prominent spectaculars of the respective companies. If the two powerhouses combined they could create, Super-Mania.
