With MetLife Stadium being announced as the home of the 29th edition of WrestleMania, the New York City metropolitan area will host the biggest WWE event of the year for a record fourth time.
But with next year’s event coming to East Rutherford, will the WWE continue holding WrestleMania every 10 years at Madison Square Garden or break tradition and move to another venue?
Regarding WrestleMania 29 being held in the New York area and how it affects WrestleMania 30, a WWE source indicates that WWE officials weren't even considering the location for WrestleMania 30 yet.
WrestleMania 29 was decided on based on the bid that WWE received from the State of New Jersey. Nothing is official for WrestleMania 30 yet and there's no word if it will be held in New York City to keep with tradition.
Even though the last seven WrestleMania events have been in football stadiums, the WWE should bring their premier show of the year to Madison Square Garden in 2013 to continue the tradition set in 1994 and 2004.
While I completely understand if the company takes WrestleMania to a new stadium like Cowboys Stadium or Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the intimacy and mystique of Madison Square Garden can’t be topped by any new massive stadium in the United States.
With a new capacity of 22,000 for professional wrestling after an $850 million renovation of MSG, the venue has been arguably the best in the history of the WWE as multiple generations of McMahons have promoted events there over the years.
Whether a return to Madison Square Garden is in the works, the 2013 WrestleMania will be a spectacle to watch as the biggest event for the WWE and professional wrestling celebrates its 30th birthday in two years.
So Bleachers, where do you think the WWE should hold the 30th anniversary of their biggest event, WrestleMania; Madison Square Garden or another location across the country?
