WWE officials are getting close to picking a location for the 2015 and 2016 WrestleMania events. One of the frontrunners is the new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, which opens for the San Francisco 49′ers in 2014, and is also hosting the 2016 Super Bowl. If Levi’s Stadium is picked, the Hall of Fame and RAW would take place from the HP Pavilion in San Jose.
There is also said to be a major Northeastern location in the running.
I contacted a source this morning who tipped us to first break the news of WrestleMania 29 being in New Jersey and he said that the Philadelphia Eagles Lincoln Financial Field is currently a top contender being considered. WWE is said to no longer be afraid of going into areas where there may be a colder climate during the event after their successful event at MetLife Stadium this year. Given Philadelphia’s history with the WWE, it all makes sense.
There is also one other Northeast city being considered for the event. It’s assumed that those locations are either Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium, or Washington DC’s FedEx Field.
