WrestleMania is the biggest show of the year for WWE. This
The event will take place at the SoFi Stadium in Hollywood Park, Los Angeles, Calif. There have been a total of five WrestleMania events that have taken places in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The last being in 2005 with WrestleMania 21.
To give you a glimpse of where women’s wrestling was at that time, the women’s match at WrestleMania 21 was Trish Stratus (c) vs. Christy Hemme. The match was for the Women’s Championship and lasted just over four minutes.
In a press release, the Mayors of Inglewood and Los Angeles provided their excitement to host the event.
“There is nothing quite like WrestleMania Week,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “It is a one-of-a-kind event that provides an economic boost to the region — and fans from around the world will find a city that is ready to host them and welcomes the spectacle.”
“The city of Inglewood is thrilled to say that WrestleMania will add to the growing number of national and internationally followed events that will be hosted in our city over the next eight years,” said Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. “WrestleMania brings excitement and is followed by almost every age demographic. With the scheduling of this marquee event, we can say without contradiction, the only thing that has changed in Inglewood is…everything.”
Vince McMahon gave his sentiment as well in regards to the location as follows:
“On behalf of everyone at WWE, we are excited to bring WrestleMania back to Los Angeles,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “WrestleMania will set the bar for future sports and entertainment events held at SoFi Stadium as we add this facility to the list of iconic venues that have hosted our pop-culture extravaganza.”
