Minneapolis Officials Working Under The Assumption WrestleMania 41 is Theirs

WWE WrestleMania 41 will be heading to Minneapolis according to the latest reports, especially if those in the Minnesotan city have their way.

WWE has yet to publicly confirm the location of their biggest event of 2025, in a break from tradition from the norm. In recent years, WWE has given plenty of advance notice regarding the date and location of their annual Showcase of Immortals.

As we’ve been reporting in recent months, Minneapolis has been the front runner to host WrestleMania 41 in 2025. City officials all but confirmed this during public hearings and an official announcement is expected to be made in the next week or two, as is customary with this year’s WrestleMania coming up. 

The U.S Bank Stadium would likely be the home of WrestleMania 41 if the show does indeed go to Minneapolis. The home of the Minnesota Vikings, the stadium was opened in 2016 and hosts a max capacity of 73,000. 

Political Hints

Minnesota officials have been loose-lipped when it comes to WrestleMania 41 coming to the state. In April 2023, officials let ‘slip’ that they were a finalist for the show. While this has gotten fans talking about the show being in Minneapolis, the report says it’s cost the city ‘leverage’ in discussions rather than create buzz.

Governor Walz said last week that “this is the place to be” and listed several events, including the U.S. Gymnastic Trials and the U.S. Junior Hockey Championships. Walz then mentioned WrestleMania before speaking about a potential $20 million boon to the economy. 

Another Option? 

While Minneapolis is expected to host the show, there had been reports that Las Vegas could be in line for WrestleMania 41. When Fightful asked their WWE sources. They said that if this was the plan, then the show would’ve been announced at the WrestleMania 40 kick-off event that took place in Las Vegas.

WrestleMania Overseas

Many fans across the pond had hoped for WrestleMania 41 to come to London, England. While John Cena told the crowd at Money in the Bank 2023 that he intends to bring the show to the English capital, there’s no word yet on whether there are any plans for an overseas WrestleMania.
