So it’s going to be in New Jersey next year. Outdoors.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will head a press confernce tomorrow to announce the 2013 version of WresteMania will be held at Metlife Stadium, outdoors, in East Rutherford, NJ. The date for the show was not announced other than a release saying early April, so likely the first Sunday of April, which is April 7. March 31 is also a possibility.
Representatives of the WWE, the New York Jets and the New York Giants are expected at the press conference. This will be the first time WrestleMania will be in the Northeast at an outdoor venue, which, unless precautions are made, could be a weather risk.
Update #2 – Thanks to my good friends at weather.org, here is the weather history for April 7 in East Rutherford the past five years, just to give us some kind of idea of what we might be able to expect. I’m really going above and beyond the call of duty with this post, I know.
So they’re probably hoping for a repeat of 2010’s temperatures, but it’s more likely we’re going to get mid-40s with a minute chance of precipitation.
Update #3 – I just noticed that he speculated a show announced for early April could get held on the last day of March. What a goddamn moron.
