WrestleMania Axxess is one of the most fun events for all wrestling fans and the WWE Universe always looks forward to it. The company has also started a new tradition of honouring a WWE Legend each year by unveiling his bronze statue at the event since 2013.
Till now, they have made statues of Andre The Giant, Bruno Sammartino, The Ultimate Warrior, and The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes. So it will also be interesting to see which legend gets a statue this time.
WrestleMania Axxess always turns out to be a fun event. Last year WWE taped some matches for NXT during the event allowing fans to witness live matches featuring stars, such as Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura. Fans attending the event are hoping that they will get to see some live action among other things this year as well.
