As we noted earlier this month, WrestleMania 37 is likely to take place from Los Angeles, California. This year’s “Show Of Shows” took place from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Next year, WrestleMania 36 will be held inside the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Now, it’s expected that the new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park will be WrestleMania’s landing spot in 2021. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that the stadium – which hosts the NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers and Rams – holds a capacity of 80,240. However, that’s expected to expand to 100,000 for big events such as the 2022 Super Bowl, World Cup games, and Olympic events.
WWE would’ve liked to instead go to Los Angeles in 2022, in an attempt to top the Super Bowl attendance and set a new attendance record for the company. But Los Angeles wants to use WrestleMania as a trial run before the Super Bowl to fix any kinks before the big game.
WrestleMania In L.A.
WrestleMania has been held in Los Angeles twice before. The first being WrestleMania 2 in 1986. The show was headlined by Hulk Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy inside of a Steel Cage. Then WWE returned in 2005 for WrestleMania 21. In the main event, Batista toppled Triple H to capture the World Heavyweight Championship.
