What's the story?

According to a recent report from PWInsider, WrestleMania could be heading back to the northeast in 2019.

In case you didn't know...

The last time WrestleMania was in the northeast was WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013. The event took place at the new MetLife Stadium; which is home to two NFL teams, the Jets and Giants.

The main events of WrestleMania 29 included John Cena defeating The Rock for the WWE Championship, Undertaker defeating CM Punk, and Triple H defeating Brock Lesnar.

The heart of the matter...

The report from PWInsider didn't specifically mention a location, but many speculate it will once again be held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It would be six years in between WrestleMania's for the stadium.

Word is that MetLife Stadium was in the running to host WrestleMania 34 this year, but when New Orleans' city officials made the WWE a better offer, they decided to hold it at the Mercedes- Benz Superdome, four years after the venue held WrestleMania XXX.

What's next?

The official announcement from the WWE for WrestleMania 35 could come any day now. The announcement for this year's WrestleMania in New Orleans came from the WWE on January 9th last year. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further updates.

Author's take...

Though the WWE didn't run into this problem with WrestleMania 29, I think it is a complete risk running WrestleMania at an outdoor stadium in April. There could be a blizzard in the northeast that time of year, but at the same time, it could easily be 75 degrees and beautiful.

MetLife Stadium originally was going to have a roof, but disputes in the funding took that option off of the table. It was a beautiful night for WrestleMania 29 with temps in the mid-50's and I hope the WWE has the same luck with the weather if they go that direction for WrestleMania 35.

I've been a passionate wrestling fan since I was a Little Stinger watching the NWA at my Grandma's house on Saturday nights in the 1980's. Since the start of 2015, I have hosted a pro wrestling podcast called Lost In The Midcard with my good friend Matt Black where we cover all wrestling promotions. My favorite wrestler of all-time is Ric Flair; while my favorite wrestlers today include Dean Ambrose, Kenny Omega, and Kevin Owens.
