WWE Wrestlemania

Summary:

World Wrestling Entertainment's largest pay-per-view is WrestleMania. Annually it draws $50 to $100 Million dollars into the economy of the city that hosts it. The event is 4 days long. I believe between minneapolis and St Paul this would a boon to our local economy if done as a joint venture. The days leading up to the main event could be done at Xcel energy center and the main event could be showcased at the new Vikings stadium. I would benefit both cities. The event is done annually on the last weekend of March or the first weekend in April.

No city west of Chicago or east of Vegas has hosted the event. I would draw in large crowds from all over the world. Pro-wrestling has roots and history here.
