Gretzky and WWE?
Are Wayne Gretzky and the WWE in cahoots?
It’s a question that needs to be asked after seeing “The Great One” wearing a Wrestlemania shirt in a recent article on Sweden news site Expressen. A picture of Gretzky in the shirt is included in the article.
What’s so significant about that?
Well the WWE hasn’t released any information concerning the event, which according to the shirt, takes place in 2010 so one at least has to wonder how he got his hands on it.
The shirt also reads “Destruction in the Desert”. Could that mean Wrestlemania will be in Arizona in two years?
Hat tip to Rajah for the find.
Update 1/8 2:20 PM: Rajah has more news involving Gretzky and WWE. Apparently the shirt Gretzky was wearing wasn’t made by WWE and is simply a shirt made by a group campaigning to bring Wrestlemania to the Phoenix area in 2010:
The Wrestlemania 2010 hockey jersey that Wayne Gretzky was wearing was not officially made by WWE, but rather it is just another piece of the ongoing campaign to get WM 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. If the show is held in the city, it will likely be at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, which will be hosting the Super Bowl this year. Gretzky is obviously pulling for the event to come to Phoenix, since it is the home of his team the Phoenix Coyotes.
