It’s always a big deal when it comes to the next host city for Wrestlemania. WWE typically announces the host city for its biggest event a year in advance, and while a formal announcement has yet to be made on the site for WM 30, rumors have started to swirl.
The initial favorite to host the 30th anniversary of the event was Cowboys Stadium. This would seem to be a perfect fit, given the capacity and features of the stadium, however new reports from Wrestlezone.com suggest that the House that Jerry Built is no longer in the running due to scheduling conflicts.
While this is a huge disappointment on some levels, it’s certainly not the end of the world for wrestling fans.
So what venue is next in line? At this moment the new favorite is rumored to be the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
The Superdome, while not my first choice either, is certainly a very solid venue for WWE’s Super Bowl. The capacity is there (72,000), and more importantly, the noise factor is there.
Often you hear of wrestlers complaining that the crowd noise is lost in a large stadium, as it travels into the night sky, but that won’t be an issue with the Superdome. It has a reputation for being one of, if not the loudest stadiums in the NFL, and we all know that the average WWE fan is crazier than your average NFL fan.
All-in-all I’m excited about this potential spot for WM 30. In addition to a solid venue, the city of New Orleans will be a great host for the event. Some of the best sports fans in the country reside in the Big Easy, and the potential for a great night in 2014 is definitely there.
