- Maria Menounos wrote the following on her Facebook page about inducting Bob Backlund into the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend:
"I know some of you don't understand why I'm inducting Bob Backlund into the WWE Hall of Fame. Here's a quick history... I met Bob when I was 19-he starred in my movie, he supported me when I competed at Miss Mass USA pageant and I helped him run for congress. He's a dear friend of 14 years and I'm honored to be a part of this historic moment in his career and with the WWE."
- Diamond Dallas Page and Jake "The Snake" Roberts are two of the many Legends in New York and New Jersey for the WrestleMania festivities. Jim Ross tweeted about meeting up with DDP and Jake:
"Just had a visit w/ @DDPYoga & @JakeSnakeDDT. Page always looks good & Jake looked amazing. So proud of his sobriety. A true blessing."
