Tonight’s WrestleMania 40 Saturday guarantees myriad of captivating moments for fans. Here are some behind-the-scenes insights ahead of the event, courtesy of PWInsider:

WWE is employing their heated ring, initially devised for the outdoor WrestleMania in New Jersey several years ago. Heat will be circulated into the ring from all four corners, ensuring the comfort of performers during their bouts.


Earlier, several drones were spotted hovering above the entrance stage, hinting at potentially stunning visual elements.

A notable presence backstage is a sizable Prime Energy truck, likely integral to Logan Paul’s grand entrance.

Philadelphia Mummers will grace the event with a unique ring entrance, drawing from their vibrant tradition showcased annually in a grand parade since 1901, featuring elaborate costumes and performances.

Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson, previously involved in regular Smackdown dark matches, has been brought in by WWE for Wrestlemania weekend, despite his absence from live audience engagements since February.

Adding to the buzz, Lars Frederiksen of Rancid, a close associate of CM Punk, has been spotted in town for the WWE festivities, further fueling speculation and excitement surrounding the event.
