A major US city has seemingly removed themselves from the WWE WrestleMania 43 running.

Fresh off the back of confirmation that WrestleMania 41 is heading to Las Vegas, speculation began doing the rounds that the spectacular could land in Detroit in 2027.

The Motor City famously hosted WrestleMania III in 1987 and WrestleMania 23 in 2007.

However, the Detroit Sports Commission has now issued a statement to the Detroit News denying a bid is in the works.

“Contrary to recent speculation, the DSC is not currently in the process of preparing a bid to host WrestleMania in 2027. However, we remain enthusiastic about the prospect of hosting future major WWE events.

The Detroit Sports Commission values its strong relationship with WWE and is proud to have hosted some of their premier events across the Metro Detroit region. The DSC consistently evaluates opportunities and actively pursues bids for potential future events, leveraging our longstanding relationships with national governing bodies, sanctioning bodies, and event owners.

We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with WWE and welcoming more thrilling events to our vibrant city in the years to come.”

Saudi Arabia Looking To Land WWE WrestleMania

The speculation comes after it was revealed that Saudi Arabia would like to take WrestleMania international.

Speaking to ESPN, Turki Alalshikh, Chairman of the GEA, said he’s hoping to bring the Royal Rumble, or even WrestleMania to Saudi Arabia.
