WrestleMania is the Super Bowl of professional wrestling. And one year after the Super Bowl was in Sin City, Las Vegas is getting another marquee event.

The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced on Saturday that the two-day event will be in Las Vegas. This past February, Allegiant Stadium hosted the Super Bowl as the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers.

“Las Vegas is the Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World. Allegiant Stadium has proven to be even greater than the A+ venue Las Vegas guaranteed it would be,” WWE President Nick Khan said. “We look forward to bringing WWE’s biggest event, WrestleMania, to Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium so we can collectively make WrestleMania 41 on April 19 & 20, 2025, the most successful WWE event of all time.”

This will be just the second WrestleMania in Las Vegas. They previously hosted WrestleMania 9.

This comes on the heels of WrestleMania 40 being held at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia. This two-day event saw Cody Rhodes finishing his story to become the new champion over Roman Reigns.

It is also the highest-grossing event in WrestleMania history.

There was some speculation that Philadelphia wanted the event again in 2025. There was also speculation that U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota would get the event.

Ultimately, “Triple H” Paul Levesque and Khan, who runs the company now, decided to bring the two-day event to Las Vegas.
