WWE Announces Location Of WrestleMania 35

WrestleMania 29

While the location has been all but official for the last few months, WWE announced tonight that WrestleMania 35 is coming to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey next year.

WWE announced via the New York Post that there will be a press conference at the stadium at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time on Friday morning to officially confirm the news. That came after NJ.com first reported that the press conference would be to reveal MetLife as the host venue.

It was reported in January that WrestleMania 35 would be taking place at MetLife Stadium on April 7th, 2019. Like with New Orleans this year, it’s a fairly quick return to the New York/New Jersey area for WWE after WrestleMania 29 was held at MetLife in 2013.

WWE’s events surrounding WrestleMania 35 (the Hall of Fame ceremony, NXT TakeOver, Raw, and SmackDown) will be taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Referencing the New York Post’s report, WWE issued the following statement:

WrestleMania returns to MetLife Stadium in April 2019

As first reported on nypost.com, the New York-New Jersey area will once again play host to The Showcase of the Immortals when WrestleMania 35 descends on MetLife Stadium on April 7, 2019.

The last time The Show of Shows came to MetLife was WrestleMania 29, an event held in April 2013 that grossed an excess of $72 million and attracted a sold-out crowd of 80,676 fans from all 50 states and 34 countries. The incredible event featured WWE Champion The Rock going head-to-head against John Cena, Triple H battling Brock Lesnar in a No Holds Barred Match, The Undertaker taking on CM Punk, and WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No clashing with Dolph Ziggler & Big E.

Another big part of WrestleMania Week will be the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, NXT TakeOver, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE, all of which will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

WrestleMania 35 has strong potential to be bigger than ever, with ticket and special Travel Packages becoming available later this year. Prepare yourself as The Grandest Stage of Them All returns to New York-New Jersey on April 2019.

There is no word yet on where Axxess will be held. For WrestleMania 29, the multi-day event was held at the Izod Center just next door to MetLife Stadium (Raw was also held there). However, the arena was closed in 2015.

The other change is the site of the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held at Madison Square Garden in 2013.
