WrestleMania is set to take place on the 6th and 7th of April in Philadelphia, PA but the host of 2025’s edition of the show may have become clearer.

The 40th edition of WrestleMania will see Cody Rhodes challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship for the second year in a row as The American Nightmare looks to finally finish his story.

Rhodes and Reigns will be pulling double duty at the event as will World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. All three men will be part of a huge tag team match that is likely to headline night one which also includes The Rock teaming with his Bloodline partner.

Seth Rollins will also be in action when he puts his World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Drew McIntyre on the show.

Major City Bids For WWE WrestleMania

Now the Minneapolis Star Tribune has reported that Minnesota Sports and Events has made a bid to bring WrestleMania to the U.S. Bank Stadium in the Twin Cities. MNSE’s President Wendy Blackshaw noted that she was hopeful that Minneapolis’ bid would be successful but stressed that bidding for the event was “very competitive.”

In recent years WWE has looked for major site fees to hold events in cities around the world. WWE received almost $3 million from the Welsh Government for Clash at the Castle to take place in Cardiff in 2022. A study noted that the Government believed the event generated almost a tenfold return on investment for the Welsh economy.

Minnesota has never hosted a WrestleMania event in the past and the last premium live event held in Minneapolis was TLC in December 2019.
