Fans gear up for full weekend of WrestleMania action

SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) -- The Bay Area is just two days away from what is called the biggest event in sports entertainment as fans gear up to pack Levi's Stadium this Sunday for WrestleMania 31.

On Friday, some of the superstars of the WWE took a tour of San Francisco.

"What about Uso Roni a San Francisco treat. Uso Roni does that work? I think it works," says WWE Superstars Jey and Jimmy Uso.

And it did for many fans, who were surprised when a trolley full of WWE Superstars rolled through San Francisco. The wrestlers and divas promoting Sunday's event, but for the Uso brothers, the trolley ride meant a lot more.

For them, WrestleMania 31 is a homecoming; they were born in San Francisco. The Usos say the chance to wrestle on their home turf will be incredible.

That statement was shared by many of the superstars we talked to who either have a connection to the Bay Area or just love being here.

"If it wasn't for the Cow Palace in San Francisco, then our family may not be what it is today. That's where my father and uncle started," said WWE Superstar Roman Reigns.

"It's a beautiful area, It's so close to wine country," said WWE Superstar John Cena.

"Nothing better that's why this WrestleMania for me is that much sweeter just because it is in my hometown," says WWE Diva Eva Marie, who grew up in Concord.

For some Bay Area fans, the highlight of WrestleMania being in here is the chance to see their favorite superstars.

"I just called in sick. I was like, 'Oh no, I'm not going to go into school. I'm going to go and see some wrestlers," said WWE fan Isaiah Ramirez.

KTVU Fox 2's Paul Chambers – who has been reporting on WrestleMania related stories all week – also got in on the action. He said the best part for him was meeting one of the most popular wrestlers of all time, his childhood idol Hulk Hogan.

"This is Hulk Hogan the greatest of all time and my new young tag team partner. You guys mess with us, you're in a lot of trouble," said Hogan Friday morning with his arm around Chamber's shoulders.

Whether the stars were new or from years gone by, wrestling fans plan to turn out this weekend to see the best there is in sports entertainment

"This is going to be the best yet! So many Superstars, so many matches. I'm just excited to be a part of it," says WWE Legend Jerry Lawler.
