WWE recently completed WrestleMania 40, one of its most successful events, setting records and making substantial business. There were rumors that Detroit was aiming to host WrestleMania 43, but those rumors have been debunked.

Speculation emerged on social media about Detroit radio report suggesting that the Detroit Sports Commission was preparing a bid to bring WWE WrestleMania back to the city in 2027. This potential event would coincide with the 20-year anniversary of WrestleMania 23 in Detroit and the 40-year anniversary of WrestleMania III, also held in Michigan.

However, in a statement to The Detroit News, the Commission denied that they were currently working on a bid for WrestleMania 2027, while expressing their enthusiasm for hosting future WWE events.

Contrary to recent speculation, the DSC is not currently in the process of preparing a bid to host WrestleMania in 2027. However, we remain enthusiastic about the prospect of hosting future major WWE events. The Detroit Sports Commission values its strong relationship with WWE and is proud to have hosted some of their premier events across the Metro Detroit region. The DSC consistently evaluates opportunities and actively pursues bids for potential future events, leveraging our longstanding relationships with national governing bodies, sanctioning bodies, and event owners. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with WWE and welcoming more thrilling events to our vibrant city in the years to come.


The Detroit Commission played a key role in helping WWE bring its 2023 SummerSlam Premium Live Event to Ford Field in Detroit. WrestleMania 41 is set to be a major spectacle, with WWE confirming that the event will be held in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium on April 19 and April 20, 2025, so we’ll have to see how the show will turn out next year.
