WWE respond to Minnesota WrestleMania rumor with official statement

Published Add your comment

The WWE Universe may be looking forward to a bumper SummerSlam pay-per-view this weekend but, even with the event boasting a Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker rematch, WrestleMania will always remain the biggest event on the calendar.

That fact has been proven once again over the past 24 hours with rumors spreading through the WWE concerning a WrestleMania that wouldn't even take place for a couple of years.

Unfortunately, although Minnesota Vikings official Lester Bagley appeared to have revealed the NFL team's new stadium would be definitely hosting a 'Mania event, the WWE have dampened expectation by releasing an official statement on the matter.

First, Bagley's original comments. Speaking on the soon to be completed US Bank Stadium, the VP of Public Affairs reeled off a host of primetime events set to take place in the arena:

"We have already secured the Super Bowl in 2018, the NCAA basketball Final Four in 2019. We are a finalist and seem to be in a very good position to secure the college football playoffs, the BCS Championship game and you know we’ve got WrestleMania coming," he explained.

As you might expect, the claim had the WWE Universe on the verge of booking plane tickets as fans thought they'd got a scoop on the organization's headline event.

The WWE, though, moved quickly to reject the idea that Minnesota had already been identified as a future WrestleMania venue:

"Minneapolis is one of the many cities that has expressed an interest in hosting a future WrestleMania," they wrote.

"Beyond WrestleMania in Dallas, TX on April 3, 2016, locations for future WrestleMania's have not been announced."
