WWE announced WrestleMania 35 will return to the New York-New Jersey area at MetLife Stadium on April 7, 2019.

WWE issued the following:

A high-profile press conference was held to make the official announcement that MetLife Stadium will play host to WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019, with additional events held throughout the New York-New Jersey region during WrestleMania Week.

“On behalf of everyone at WWE, we thank Governor Murphy and all of our partners for bringing WrestleMania back home,” WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon said of the incredible partnership. “It is the one place that matches the energy, excitement and spectacle of WrestleMania.”

“What does WrestleMania mean to me?” said an emotion-filled John Cena, as he asked his fiancé Nikki Bella to join him at the podium.  “Everything.” The 16-time World Champion beautifully expressed the many ways The Showcase of the Immortals has been his life throughout the years and how he would be a part of the event in 2019 in some capacity.

“It was destiny that brought me here [to WWE],” said The Baddest Women on the Planet Ronda Rousey, who exchanged an intense stare with  one-half of her WrestleMania 34 tag team opposition Triple H as she made her way to the podium. Rousey expressed her desire to use WrestleMania 35 as her way to honor the late WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and the great female Superstars of the Women’s Evolution.

Some of the other distinguished speakers in attendance included WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, who described the rich past of the Showcase of the Immortals, WWE EVP, Talent, Live Events, Creative  Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who talked about WWE today including the Women’s Evolution and the rise of Ronda Rousey, The New Day as well as dignataries like New Jersey Lt Governor of New Jersey Shelia Oliver, WWE EVP Special Events and the host for the event John Saboor and the CEO of Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment Brett Yormark.

Other Superstars in attendance included Braun Strowman, Titus O’Neil, Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Apollo.

Other dignitaries included Vincent Prieto, President and CEO of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, Rob VanDeVeen, President/CEO of MetLife Stadium, John Mara, Giants owner and PresidentNeil Glat, New York Jets President, Kirkos, President and CEO of the Meadowlands Regional Chamber and Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC and Company.

In the end, The New Day would return to the stage to close the amazing event out right, serving pankcakes to the crowd. A fitting way to ring in the return of The Greatest Stage of Them All to the New York-New Jersey Area.

WrestleMania 35 is more than just a one-day event; it’s a week-long celebration that will stretch throughout the New York-New Jersey region. In addition to WrestleMania, other activities will include WrestleMania Axxess — WWE’s four-day interactive fan festival — as well as four nights of events at Barclays Center: The 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, NXT TakeOver, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE. WWE will also host more than a dozen community outreach events, including hospital visits and Be a STAR bullying prevention rallies, designed to give back to the local region.

The last time The Show of Shows came to MetLife was WrestleMania 29, an event held in April 2013 that grossed an excess of $72 million and attracted a sold-out crowd of 80,676 fans from all 50 states and 34 countries. The incredible event featured WWE Champion The Rock going head-to-head against John Cena, Triple H battling Brock Lesnar in a No Holds Barred Match, The Undertaker taking on CM Punk, and WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No clashing with Dolph Ziggler & Big E.

Over the past 11 years, WrestleMania has generated more than $1 billion in cumulative economic impact for the cities that have hosted the event. This year, WrestleMania 34 takes place Sunday, April 8, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and will be streamed live around the world on WWE Network.

As first reported on nypost.com, the New York-New Jersey area will once again play host to The Showcase of the Immortals when WrestleMania 35 descends on MetLife Stadium on April 7, 2019.
