The 82,500 capacity stadium in New Jersey will be the centre of the WWE Universe on Sunday night as it hosts its second WrestleMania.

Pictures have now shown the construction of the ring and stage taking place in the middle of the pitch usually used for NFL games hosted by the New York Jets or New York Giants.

The stage covers the ring from any elements and also features a huge circular video screen on top to show footage to spectators in the upper tiers.

A curved entrance area shows the stage where competitors will make their spectacular entrances to the ring ready for their matches.

There is huge excitement ahead of WrestleMania, which will be the first to have a women's main event as Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch battle for the WWE Raw and WWE Smackdown Women's Championships in a winner-takes-all match.

Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre, Samoa Joe vs Rey Mysterio, Bobby Lashley vs Finn Balor, and Shane McMahon vs The Miz are amongst other top clashes.
