WrestleMania 36 in 2020 has already been officially confirmed for the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida and will have a quirky but awesome pirate motif – the advert for the show even features music that is basically the Pirates Of The Caribbean theme tune.
No WrestleMania 37 location has been revealed officially yet but according to The Los Angeles Times, a new football stadium currently being built in Inglewood called the Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park (what a mouthful!) is said to be the front-runner.
Los Angeles has been the host city for WrestleMania on three previous occasions, as one third of a trimulcast for WrestleMania 2 in 1986, WrestleMania VII in 1991 and most recently for the Hollywood-themed WrestleMania 21 in 2005, which was headlined by Triple H vs. Batista.
The Los Angeles Times article states that the venue is said to be the favourite to land the event according to “multiple sources”, with the stadium wanting to host ‘Mania as a test run for holding the 2022 SuperBowl.
Kathy Schloessman, president of the Los Angeles Sport and Entertainment Commission said:
“We know the power of the WWE brand. They have hosted several events here in the past such as Summer Slam, Survivor Series, Raw and SmackDown and we have seen the tremendous impact these events have in the community, both economically and socially. Given our focus on attracting major sporting and entertainment events to Los Angeles, WrestleMania is at the top of our list of events we want here.”
Is this wishful thinking from LASEC or is WWE going to head to LA for WrestleMania for the first time in 16 years in 2021? It will likely be almost a year until we know for sure.
