ATT Stadium in Arlington, Texas is the official cutting-edge, state-of-the-art home of “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys, of the National Football League.
However, just over 48 hours from WrestleMania 32, the finishing touches are being put on a massive set to make the stadium a hub for what could be the most attended sports entertainment event of all time.
On Thursday, World Wrestling Entertainment gave the WWE Universe a sneak peek at the construction of the set being counted on to bring WrestleMania 32 to life in accommodating an expected 100,000 raucous fans under the brightest lights on the “Grandest Stage of Them All.”
While the construction work was still very much in progress Thursday, you can see the formation of this massive set in this 60-second video.
“Look at the size of those Jumbotrons,” Monday Night Raw announcer Byron Saxton says in the clip. “That’s like five times the size of my house.”
Adds backstage Raw interviewer Renee Young: “I cannot wrap my head around it. I want to watch everything on this monitor. Absolutely fantastic!”
They’re referring to ATT Stadium’s main Jumbotron high definition screen, which unbelievably stretches from the 20-yard line to the 20-yard line during Cowboys games, giving every fan in attendance a clear view. It will come in handy Sunday night, as wrestlers in a ring are a lot harder to spot from the nosebleed section than football players across a 100-yard field.
At the 29-second mark of the clip, you can even see a zoomed-out shot of the Hell in a Cell, which, of course, will be occupied Sunday night by Shane McMahaon and the Undertaker in what could very well pan out to be the most thrilling match of the entire pay-per-view extravaganza.
It’s crazy that the Hell in a Cell — already considered the most destructive structure in sports entertainment — looks as ominous in a zoomed-out view as it does close up. Just imagine the carnage that Shane-O-Mac and the Dead Man will cause once locked in it and forced to rip each other apart.
It must have been chilling for Saxton and Young to be sitting inside of a stark ATT Stadium, knowing that upwards of 100,000 rabid fans will be filling it up in just over two days from now.
