- The second season of Steve Austin’s Redneck Island will premiere on CMT on Saturday, November 10th at 9pm ET.

- As PWMania.com previously reported, WWE announced in a press release that WrestleMania 28 generated a record-breaking $102.7 million in economic impact for the city of Miami and Miami-Dade County this past April, according to a study conducted by the Enigma Research Corporation. This new record for WrestleMania’s economic impact represents a $40 million increase over WrestleMania 27 in Atlanta. WrestleMania 28 also generated approximately $15.3 million in local, state and county taxes.

“We are thrilled that Miami and the state of Florida were the recipients of WrestleMania’s largest economic impact ever. This result is a testament to that community’s hard work and extensive planning,” said John P. Saboor, Senior Vice President of Special Events for WWE. “We now turn our focus to the New York/New Jersey region for what will assuredly be a historic WrestleMania 29.”

A capacity crowd of 78,363 fans from all 50 states and 36 countries attended WWE’s pop-culture extravaganza this past April. Key highlights from the study include:

* $102.7 million of direct, indirect and induced impact derived from spending by non-locals visiting specifically for WrestleMania XXVIII.

* 71% of fans that attended WrestleMania were from outside the Miami area and stayed an average of four nights.

* The economic impact derived from WrestleMania Week was equal to the creation of 1,020 full-time jobs for the area.

* $6.9 million was spent by non-locals at Miami and Miami-Dade County restaurants.
