We are now in the rear view of WWE WrestleMania 35 and the show was amazing from top to bottom that it was even named and praised as The Second Highest-Grossing Event in WWE history, behind only to WWE WrestleMania 32 at AT&T Stadium in Texas. The show reportedly grossed $16.9 Million and WWE reported that it drew a sold out crowd of 82,265 fans in attendance.
Next year’s WrestleMania has already been announced to be held on April 5th, 2020 from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, which is currently the home of The NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the new under-construction football stadium outside of Los Angeles, California in Inglewood is the front-runner to host WrestleMania 37 in 2021. The stadium, which currently has the working name Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park (LASED), is scheduled to open in 2020 as the home for both The NFL Rams & NFL Chargers franchises. It was noted that the city and stadium officials want to use the event as a test run for hosting Super Bowl LVI in 2022.
“We know the power of the WWE brand,” said Kathy Schloessman, president of the Los Angeles Sports and Entertainment Commission. “They have hosted several events here in the past such as SummerSlam, 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.”
Los Angeles last hosted WrestleMania in 2005 with WrestleMania 21 at The Staples Center.
