Re: Cowboys Stadium in Dallas Out of Running For WrestleMania 30?
LOL! Pontiac?! As a resident Detroiter who has been to the Silverdump for many events, including WMIII as a young kid, that place is not suitable for a WM or anything that isn't a soccer game or a monster jam. Place is outdated, no scoreboards much less a video screen. It was sold to some group of people a few years ago for a mere $900K.
Detroit's Ford Field is probably where WM would be should it come back to this great state. I think since WWE is going the direction of stadiums, why not Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, MI? Football capacity of 109,901 and holds world records for most people at a football game (114,804) and a hockey game (113,411) at ANY level.
Unless they're going to hold it at Angels Stadium (which I personally wouldn't mind since I live just 20min away), I don't see Anaheim working. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena is a very realistic option in my opinion. Haven't had a Mania in SoCal in 8yrs, beautiful weather, tons of tourist-y stuff to do and see for people flying in, and a historic venue that could potentially pack over 100k for wrestling.
Michigan Stadium or Rose Bowl sounds wicked to house Taker vs Cena be it in WM 30 or 31.
