WWE Issues Statement On Why Philadelphia Didn’t Land WrestleMania 31



WrestleMania I

WWE issued the following statement to PWMania.com regarding reports of why the company chose Santa Clara over Philadelphia for WrestleMania 31:

“While Philadelphia expressed a great interest in hosting Wrestlemania in 2015 and 2016, the fact is the city did not submit a formal proposal because the facilities necessary to host ancillary events weren’t available. Philadelphia remains a strong market for WWE in all aspects of our business.”
