Update on Possible Future WrestleMania Locations, Several Cities Meet with WWE for 2018

– Representatives from Indianapolis, Columbus, Ohio, Toronto and Philadelphia were in New Orleans this past week to meet with WWE officials.

Columbus pitched the idea of holding a WrestleMania at Ohio Stadium, which holds 102,329 for football, meaning WWE could break the all-time attendance record. That record may be broken even earlier if 2015 is at Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

The cities above were likely interested in 2018 since Santa Clara, CA, is booked for 2015 and Dallas Cowboys Stadium is expected for 2016. Nothing is final for 2017 but Orlando is supposed to be the favorite.

    f**k that! we need a change off scene, Vince is always commenting about how he’s never broken the UK wrestling scene, so if WWE could bring it to Wembley Stadium that’d be a massive start

    The only issue is that it is outside. The stadium is huge and could make for a crazy event. I don’t know if they will ever do one overseas. Plus with seats on the field Ohio Stadium could hold probably around 150,000.

    We’ll c’mon Boston, unless you asked and got denied make a request. Philly Eagles stadium holds almost the same seating capacity as The Patriots Gillete Stadium but not quite. The Lincoln Financial field holds over 200 less than what the Boston one does. Only 68,532 the Philadelphia based stadium can hold, I just think they’ll be denied. Not so sure though.

    Is that indoor or outdoor?

    Ohio Stadium to me would be awesome. And not just cause Im from Ohio lol but because its a massive stadium and Ohio is in a tri-state area that is a wrestling hot bed. Not to mention when you generate 100 million for host cities I feel you have a responsibility to target some areas that need the help to try and boost the economy for struggling places. Its good for business and its good for the areas that need it.
