Is Steve Austin At WrestleMania?, WrestleCon At WrestleMania 30, Elimination Chamber Buyrate

– Steve Austin will not be in attendance at WrestleMania 29 this weekend.

The former WWE Heavyweight Champion is currently down in Mexico, where he is filming for his reality television show, Redneck Island. The series is heading into its third season, and Steve Austin has been building momentum in Hollywood because of it.

– WrestleCon has officially announced that they will be bringing their event to New Orleans for WrestleMania 30 weekend. The early word is that the event will be booked in close proximity to the planned venue for WWE Axxess.

– The 2013 Elimination Chamber’s new buyrate estimate is 212,000 buys, which came from 160,000 domestic buys and 52,000 international buys. This makes it one of the largest domestic PPVs for a WWE “B-show” PPV in the last few years. The number is up from the initial estimate of 210,000 buys. The final numbers will be available in the Q1 earnings report.
