WrestleMania 34 Original Location


WrestleMania 34 is set to feature in New Orleans during the city’s tricentennial celebration in 2018.  However this was not always going to be the case.  According to a source from PWInsider, the original venue was set to be the Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The last time New Jersey hosted WrestleMania was in 2013:

Therefore, it seems like that the Metlife Stadium is in the running for hosting WrestleMania 35, much to the disappointment of all UK fans who pleaded for a London based venue, although nothing has been confirmed yet.



From an unbiased logical point of view, it makes sense to have WrestleMania in the US, both logistically and financially.  And if there were ever a venue for UK and European fans to visit, New Jersey is on the East coast which is one of more accessible points to those who can hop over the pond.
