WrestleMania is a huge event so it takes some serious planning. Not only does the card need to be taken into consideration, but the location is also a crucial decision to make.
We previously reported that LA’s new stadium will likely play host to the 37th annual show of shows. This is something that they want, but it’s not necessarily because they want to host WrestleMania specifically.
Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that the city of LA is looking to host WrestleMania because it will be a trial for an even bigger event that they have lined up.
“I think it’s gonna be Los Angeles. So that I heard was that the city of Los Angeles wants it in 2021, but WWE wants it in 2022, but it looks like the city of Los Angeles is probably gonna get its way.”
“The gist is that the city wants — the Super Bowl is coming in February 2022 to the new stadium in Hollywood Park which is being built. It’s a giant stadium, it’s gonna hold you know 100,000 people like AT&T Stadium. So WWE is gonna claim when they go there that they break the AT&T record, they’ll probably claim like 102,000 people.”
LA is hosting the Super Bowl in February of 2022. They want to use WWE’s biggest event of the year as a tester for a huge show. Therefore, it looks like LA will play host to WrestleMania sooner than WWE would prefer.
There was no word on exactly why WWE wants to hold off on Los Angeles until 2022, but it certainly looks like Mania is going back to LA once again.
