NJBiz.com has reported that WrestleMania 29 will in fact be held in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium, which is the NFL football home of the NY Jets and Super Bowl Champion NY Giants.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will make an official announcement about the April 2013 event on Thursday.
The report goes on to say that New Jersey officials expect WrestleMania 29 to draw 70,000 people to MetLife Stadium and that this announcement comes after more than a year of hard work between WWE organizers and the state.
New Jersey’s Izod Center will also likely host WWE WrestleMania 29 Fan Axxess the week before the big show.
“It’s a big, big show, like a mini-Super Bowl,” said a source involved in the event planning.
