One of the top stories of the weekend is that WrestleMania 31 will be coming to California’s Bay Area in 2015 at the brand new Levis Stadium. NBCBayArea.com has confirmed the news and provided some new details on which city was the runner up to host the event – and which city will host WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
Several top WWE Superstars, including John Cena, were at Candlestick Park today, ahead of the official announcement about WrestleMania 31, which will take place on Tuesday.
The article states that WWE officials visited 49ers headquarters in early August, where they were pitched by 49ers CEO Jed York and city leaders on the not-yet-finished $1.3 billion stadium. Several weeks later Santa Clara mayor Jamie Matthews and 49ers executives traveled to WWE headquarters in Connecticut to meet with chairman Vince McMahon.
Levi’s Stadium was chosen over Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.
The big news is that WrestleMania 32 in 2016 is “confirmed” to take place from Dallas, Texas at Cowboys Stadium.
