WWE is set to kick off WrestleMania 40 festivities in the land of Nevada with a special press event featuring some of the top WWE superstars today.
Despite the sight of Mania being held in Philadelphia in April 2024, there is reportedly a clear picture of WWE’s decision to choose Las Vegas as the location for this event which can have major implications for The Show of Shows.
According to a report by PWInsider, Vegas was chosen as the sight for the WrestleMania press event due to the city hosting the Super Bowl week and WWE wanted to be included in the sports mecca during this week.
Furthermore, it also stated that The Rock’s presence and star power will attract mainstream media attention, present in the city for the game between Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers.
“Some within WWE believe Minneapolis will be the site of WrestleMania 41 and the Twin Cities have been in the mix for the past few years. Las Vegas was picked for the WrestleMania 40 press conference so WWE could be included in Super Bowl week in the city. The feeling within the company is that The Rock will grab attention from the media already in the city for the Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers.”
The WrestleMania press event will take place at the T-Mobile Arena on February 8, starting time 4 pm PT. It will feature the likes of WWE CCO Triple H, Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins, Rhea Ripley, and possibly see The Best in the World CM Punk as well.
Furthermore, the event will witness the epic confrontation between two of the biggest WWE superstars of all time, The Rock and Roman Reigns.
