Reason Why New Orleans Got WrestleMania Again Revealed

WrestleMania 34 will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on April 8, 2018, according to The Times-Picayune.

New Orleans is experiencing a quick turnaround in WrestleMania terms, as the Showcase of Immortals was last held there in 2014.

Are you excited for WWE's return to New Orleans?

75,167 fans were in attendance.




Ticket sales for WrestleMania XXX totaled $10.5 million, making it the highest-grossing non-sporting event in the Dome's 41-year-history.

However, New Orleans will be hosting their tricentennial celebration next year, and city officials have promised WWE that WrestleMania 34 would be presented as a key factor in the celebrations.

Gene Guillot of the Times-Picayune confirmed the news Monday morning, and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had the following to say regarding the decision: "New Orleans is a flawless setting for WWE's biggest celebration of the year". The much-coveted WrestleMania typically doesn't return to a host city for at least five years. Unlike many cities, the downtown area is very close together, so all of the WWE events were within walking distance of one another.

WrestleMania 33 this April, which will be held in Orlando's Camping World Stadium, will be the third open-air Mania in a row. New Orleans will get its encore in only four.
