In the last couple of weeks, there has been plenty of rumblings about the possible location for WrestleMania 34. There are various reports suggesting that the WWE has come to a decision. That was made official on Monday as the pay-per-view event is expected to return a familiar place.
The Showcase of the Immortals is returning to New Orleans in 2018.
As first reported by The Times-Picuyane, WrestleMania 34 will emanate from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday, April 8, 2018.
A capacity crowd of 75,167 WWE fans filled the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2014 for WrestleMania 30. That was the year that The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak famously came to an end at the hands of Brock Lesnar, as well as the event where Daniel Bryan defeated Batista and Randy Orton in a triple threat main event to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
WWE will hold a press event Tuesday morning in New Orleans to make the WrestleMania 34 announcement official. Check back to WWE.com tomorrow for full coverage, including photos and videos.
The WWE had previously held the event in New Orleans a few years ago for WrestleMania 30. It was quite a historic day as Brock Lesnar snapped The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania. Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan overcame the odds to become the WWE World Heavyweight champion for the first time.
The WWE is expected to hold WrestleMania 33 in Orlando this coming April. It will mark the first time that the event has been held in that location. As always, it should be another jammed packed night of matches.
