WWE has announced that MetLife Stadium will play host to WrestleMania next year.

“For the first time, The Show of Shows is headed to New Jersey, as MetLife Stadium, home to the Super Bowl XLVI Champion New York Giants, as well as the New York Jets, will host WrestleMania XXIX on Sunday, April 7, 2013,” WWE.com states.

An official press conference is scheduled for Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at MetLife Stadium, where Vince McMahon will be joined by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, New York Giants President & CEO John Mara, New York Jets Owner & CEO Woody Johnson, and a slew of WWE Superstars, including John Cena, Triple H and Sheamus. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is scheduled for a “special appearance.”

    it’s about time Mania comes to the North! next step come back to Canada

  • Jon

    hbk fan how can you not DDP going into the HOF. He was a muti time champion in WCW and he basic gave the greatest to the moves Ace buster/dimonand cutter and now the RKO.

    He should be in the hall.

  • Bawb

    I hope Governor Fat Fattie is thrilled.

    I don’t know what will get me dislikes more–the insult or stealing Bill Maher’s joke.

  • hbk fan

    ddp isnt a hall of famer he was an average worker and only the champ because he was the bosses buddy

  • Jon

    DDP would be good choice for the fame.

  • Bill

    Looks like WM 29 is about to experience a little Self-High Five in Jersey! DDP for HOF! And that’s not a bad thing, that’s a good thing!

  • dude011

    The weather this winter has been amazing!! Same thing is predicted for next year!

    WM Next year and the superbowl the year after!!

  • kane

    its been said that vince only wants to have mania in large stadiums and to have cities bid on the privilege to have mania. it makes money for the company and gives his ego a big boost. that being said, this is seen as a sign that MSG won’t be hosting mania anytime soon if ever again.

    @Notingham

    Because 30 is not suppose to be at MSG. I hope it doesn’t snow on that date.

  • Notingham

    Sto…was thinking the exact same thing. New Jersey in early April? Assume they will have some form of structure that covers the ring….but not a good viewing experience for the people. Hell, it’s going to be in NY the year after…why NJ now?

  • StoNess

    this has to be one of the worst ideas ever by the wwe, what happens when its 40 degrees at night and also could snow, not like they can have a rain date

  • Billy Zane

    @ Nick

    Well, that was stupid.

  • Nick

    they have to have it outside because kharma is too big to fit thru the doors, they tried pushing her thru the door last time at the royal rumble and nearly took the whole building down…she is too blame for this, but not a bad idea

  • bb

    ok……. i’m join and see ya next year! lol

  • venom

    I’ll be there. Time to save for my ticket.
