WrestleMania goes to Nashville, but one important condition must be met.
Mike Organ of The Tennessean reported that WrestleMania would be held in the city for the first time in 2027 if a proposed closed stadium is built within five years.
The story noted that Butch Spyridon, CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., spoke to WWE about Nashville hosting WrestleMania and talks got underway when Mayor John Cooper and the Tennessee Titans provided a design for the proposed stadium.
Spyridon said, “WWE had an incredible experience at Nissan Stadium last summer and we got talking. WrestleMania is considered the No. 6 sporting event brand in the world, and we are grateful for their trust and belief in Nashville.”
Spyridon added that WrestleMania is the #1 most followed sports brand on social media platforms and described WrestleMania as “CMA Fest on steroids: equivalent in impact to two to three CMA Fests in one week.”
WrestleMania 39 in 2024 will take place in Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium. WrestleMania 40 takes place in Philadelphia, PA at Lincoln Financial Field.
