Possible Frontrunner for WrestleMania 37?
The LA Times reports that Los Angeles will likely be the host city for WrestleMania 37 in 2021. Multiple sources stated that LA’s new stadium is the frontrunner for the event.
Per the report, the WrestleMania 37 event would likely be held at the stadium that’s currently under construction right now in Inglewood, California. This stadium will be the new home of the Rams and Chargers. Officials for the stadium and LA reportedly want to use WrestleMania in 2021 as a test run for the stadium hosting Super Bowl LVI in 2022.
Speaking on the WWE, Los Angeles Sports and Entertainment Commission President Kathy Schloessman stated: “We know the power of the WWE brand. They have hosted several events here in the past such as Summer Slam, Survivor Series, Raw and SmackDown and we have seen the tremendous impact these events have in the community, both economically and socially. Given our focus on attracting major sporting and entertainment events to Los Angeles, WrestleMania is at the top of our list of events we want here.”
The last WrestleMania to be held in Los Angeles was WrestleMania 21 at the Staples Center in 2005.
