Adjust Comment Print

A 2014 study conducted by Enigma Research Corporation reported that WrestleMania XXX provided New Orleans a then-record $142.2 million in economic impact for the city (a mark that was broken in 2016 at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas).

Several days of related events at the Smoothie King Center and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will lead up to the finale in the Dome.

Well, WWE has officially confirmed that WrestleMania is headed back to New Orleans, LA in 2018.

A capacity crowd of 75,167 WWE fans filled the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2014 for WrestleMania 30.

We won't begrudge any city their opportunity to host WrestleMania.

An official announcement and press conference is set for Tuesday morning. Unlike many cities, the downtown area is very close together, so all of the WWE events were within walking distance of one another. This year, WrestleMania 33 will take place at Camping World Stadium on April 2 in Orlando, Fla.

Landrieu and the non-profit Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation lobbied to bring back WrestleMania. New Orleans will get its encore in only four.

Other cities that were rumored for WrestleMania 34 were Minneapolis, Philadelphia and NY and Minneapolis was said to be the favorite.
