If an enclosed stadium is built in Nashville, Tennessee within the next five years, WWE plans on holding their WrestleMania Premium Live Event in the city.
The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. CEO Butch Spyridon has had discussions in the past with WWE about the potential of holding WrestleMania. Talks ratcheted up after Mayor John Cooper, as well as the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, delivered the draft terms for the proposed stadium back in October to Nashville Council. WWE gave a verbal commitment to hold their 2027 WrestleMania PLE in the city, however, a new stadium has to be built as part of the conditions.
Back in July, WWE held their second-biggest Premium Live Event, SummerSlam, at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium.
“The minute the mayor’s office and the Titans released the stadium term sheet, we started looking for opportunities. 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.”
Metro Council will be voting on the $2.1 billion stadium proposal. Recently, Spyridon met with Nashville Council and told them that a deal for a WrestleMania in the city has been agreed upon.
