New Orleans Wants WrestleMania to Return
- Updated: April 9, 2014
WAFB in Baton Rouge, La. has posted an article this morning reflecting on the experience that was WrestleMania XXX weekend, and the positives that the event brought to New Orleans.
According to the report, New Orleans city official Mark Romig believes NOLA is interested in bringing back WrestleMania once more.
After the festivals wrap up in a couple months, city leaders say they’ll start looking ahead. In 2017, the city hopes to land the men’s Final Four college basketball championship games. And 2018 will hopefully bring a Super Bowl. That leaves 2019 wide open.
“We want WWE back,” said Romig.
In order for that to be possible, WWE would need to ask the city to submit a bid for what would be WrestleMania XXXV. The committee that planned this past event had been working on logistics for the past five years.
A video providing more information about the success of the event within the city can be found below.
Having been there in attendance, New Orleans was undoubtedly a suitable host for WrestleMania XXX. The people were great, and the Superdome was an ideal venue to hold a crowd of 75,000+. I would definitely back a return to the area.
