For those keeping track, there’s only 232 days until night one of Wrestlemania 39 at SoFi Stadium on April 1, 2023. And to celebrate that fact, WWE hosted a “Wrestlemania Launch Party” at the house Thursday night the Rams (oh yes, and the Chargers).
Dubbed Wrestlemania Goes Hollywood (who’s to tell ’em it’s actually Wrestlemania Goes Inglewood?), the free event attracted rabid fans eager to see their favorite wrestlers, along with Snoop Dogg, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and JoJo Siwa. Conveniently, tickets to Wrestlemania and a large supply of souvenirs were available for people to use, and judging by the queues, a lot of money and goods changed hands. For those of you who were unable to attend, tickets are now available from Ticketmaster.
Before the event, we had the chance to ask some of the wrestlers what their dream Wrestlemania match would be.
Queen Zelina: “I would say me against Lita for the Raw Women’s Championship or even the women’s title before that. Because that would close the circle of my childhood. So I think Lita would be the best oh my god moment for nostalgia. But also my favorite person in wrestling is Rhea Ripley so that would work too.”
And who would accept Queen Zelina if one day she made it into the WWE Hall of Fame?
Queen Zelina: “Oh, I hadn’t even thought of that. I would say Rey Mysterio because he was such a big reason for me to choose this career path, especially because of his small stature, and he’s always made me proud to be who I am as a Latina.”
theory: “John Cena. I could explain why, but I think it’s pretty obvious. Throughout my childhood I looked up to John Cena, but beyond that, we actually had an exchange on Raw last year that made me realize it’s a game that everyone wants to see. I mean Hollywood. peacemaker. Theory. It makes sense.”
Seth Rollin: “I would love nothing more than to wrestle ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels in the match he made famous with Bret Hart at Wrestlemania XII: the Ironman match. I would love the opportunity to top what they did at Wrestlemania XII. I don’t know if I could, but I’d like to try.”
Snoop Dogg’s Favorite Wrestlemania Moment: “Hogan vs. Andre. Wrestlemania III. I’m from the old school. Two of the greats.”
And what better way to wrap things up than with this classic response from Snoop when asked what the odds are of us seeing him in the ring at Wrestlemania 39: “About 4-20.”
