The joint bid between Detroit and Windsor to bring WrestleMania 32 to Ford Field in 2016 has been turned down, said Dave Beachnau, Detroit Sports Commission executive director.

Despite many rumours circulating Friday in social media stating Detroit as the front runner to host the professional wresting pay-per-view event, they didn’t make the short list.

“We were notified back in June,” Beachnau said, who wants to put the gossip to rest. “There is no truth to it. I don’t know where people are getting this information.”

There were many blogs and tweets stating Detroit was among the final three, with Orlando, Florida and Dallas, Texas. Reportedly, the WWE is expected to make its decision at the end of the month and an announcement is expected to be made in early 2014.

    i hope Dallas won WrestleMania 32 as DFW has never had a WrestleMania before and AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium) would be a great place for it.

    With that big screen I can’t think of a better venue. Dallas would literally be perfect

  3. Kyle says:

    I think St. Louis deserves a mania it’s one of the only ppvs we’ve never hosted

  4. Tyler says:

    Umm Indianapolis?!? We have Lucas Oil and showed how well we handle big events with the Super Bowl that was here.

  5. ~J* says:

    I’ve been waiting for them to head to Dallas to use that big ass screen I need one of those.

    Try to break the indoor attendance record again…

    Tyler, Indy would be a good choice too, even if Indy hosted a Wrestlemania over 20 years ago
