WrestleMania could be coming to Nashville for the first time ever.
An article from the Nashville Tennessean today confirmed that WWE has given a verbal commitment for Nashville, Tennessee to host WrestleMania 43 in 2027 as long as a new enclosed stadium is built in time. The commitment was given to Butch Spyridon, who is the CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.
The proposed new stadium would be the home of the Tennessee Titans. Nashville's Metro Council is set to vote on the $2.1 billion proposal.
“The minute the Mayor’s office and the Titans released the stadium term sheet, we started looking for opportunities," Spyridon said. "WWE had an incredible experience at Nissan Stadium this past summer, and we started talking. WrestleMania is considered the No. 6 top sports event brand in the world, and we are grateful for their confidence and belief in Nashville."
WWE issued the following statement: "Nashville has exploded as a cultural center in the United States and as the land of opportunity. WWE looks forward to hosting many events in partnership with the great city of Nashville at the proposed enclosed stadium.”
WWE brought a major event to Nashville earlier this year, with Nissan Stadium hosting SummerSlam.
"(WrestleMania) is a weeklong event potentially worth upwards of $200 million and is broadcast in 57 countries," Spyridon told the Metro Council. "This is just the beginning of what our city can do if the stadium deal is approved. Deep appreciation to WWE, the Titans and the state for getting this done."
Los Angeles will host WrestleMania 39 in April 2023. After that, Philadelphia will host WrestleMania 40 in April 2024. The locations for WrestleManias 41 and 42 haven't been revealed.
