For wrestling fans, there’s no time of year more exciting than Wrestlemania week. It’s at that time that WWE comes to a city and takes over, presenting TV tapings, live events, and community outreach activations–in addition to the big show itself. Another important piece of the Wrestlemania puzzle, though, is Axxess.
Wrestlemania Axxess is essentially WWE’s own mini-comic con, made especially for fans who have traveled to see the biggest show of the year. It’s filled with special live matches for fans, plenty of meet and greet opportunities with the company’s talent, and even an abundance of interactive activations. If you want to do color commentary on your favorite wrestling match, Axxess if where that can happen. Want to recreate an iconic WWE entrance, complete with music and video? Axxess has it covered.
Perhaps the most impressive part of Axxess, though, is it also serves as something of a museum for artifacts from throughout WWE’s history. From iconic Wrestlemania costumes to cars wrecked by Braun Strowman, Axxess has it all on display for fans to see and take photos of.
Not everyone can travel to Wrestlemania, though. Luckily, this year GameSpot did. We traveled to New York City for Wrestlemania 35 and are able to bring the Axxess goods to you. Take a look at these photos of the various items of WWE memorabilia on display at the fan fest and make sure to check out our other Wrestlemania coverage as we prepare for the granddaddy of them all–from our predictions and streaming guide, to coverage of the Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling combined show, G1 Supercard. Then come back for our coverage of Wrestlemania 35, as we will be live in the press box at MetLife Stadium for the biggest show of the year.
