Update On Possible Location For WrestleMania 33

As noted, Minneapolis, Minnesota was previously rumored to hold WrestleMania 33 in 2017, but Orlando, Florida is said to be very high on WWE’s list as there have been a lot of talk within the company about holding the event in the city.

Executive Director of Orlando Venues Allen Johnson was asked by Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald about Orlando potentially hosting WrestleMania again.

“I think we’re ready for it,” Johnson said. “We’re prepared to whatever year they decide to come back. We’re ready for them, and we now have the infrastructure in place to accommodate it much better than before, and they know that. They’ve toured the stadium. They’ve been here and seen what we now are capable of versus what we were capable of. That gets us in the conversation to host one of those events.”

“It’s very comforting for them (WWE and UFC) to know that they’re walking into a place that’s already prepared to handle their events,” Johnson said.

WrestleMania 24 was held in the city back in 2008. It’s possible that WrestleMania will be held in Orlando in 2017 and Minneapolis in 2018.

    They’ve had enough Wrestlemanias in Florida. Try something different for a change. They’ve never had one in Minnesota and to have it in a brand-new dome stadium is much better than having it in an outdoor stadium that is smaller. way older, and subject to elements. It rained just before Wrestlemania 24 and right after the show was over it poured down rain. Plus they have to spend well over a million dollars just to renovate the stadium enough for it to be usable. Go to Minnesota. Or how about Miller Park in Milwaukee?
