2017 is off to a great start for new events reportedly being scheduled to take place in New Orleans. A report on a website dedicated to pro wrestling says that World Wrestling Entertainment's WrestleMania 34 (XXXIV) will be held in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome sometime in early 2018.
According to WWE, WrestleMania XXX broke the record for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s highest grossing entertainment event.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu lauded WWE and its fans for the event back in 2014. "On behalf of the city of New Orleans, I would like to thank all of the fans who came from around the world to WrestleMania thirty," Landrieu said. "WrestleMania has taken its rightful place amongst the most historic events ever held in New Orleans."
