The official WrestleMania 35 press release
March 16, 2018

By Jason Powell, Prowrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE issued the following press release regarding WrestleMania 35 taking place in New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, New York Giants, New York Jets, NYC & Company and WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced that WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza, WrestleMania, will return to MetLife Stadium on Sunday, April 7, 2019, with additional events held throughout the New York/New Jersey region.

“We are thrilled to bring WrestleMania, one of the biggest sports and entertainment events in the world, to MetLife Stadium,” said New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. “We look forward to a phenomenal week of activities that will strengthen our economy.”

“On behalf of everyone at WWE, we thank Governor Murphy and all of our partners for bringing WrestleMania back home,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “It is the one place that matches the energy, excitement and spectacle of WrestleMania.”

WrestleMania35 is more than just a one-day event; it’s a week-long celebration that will stretch throughout the New York/New Jersey region. In addition to WrestleMania, other activities will include WrestleMania Axxess, WWE’s four-day interactive fan festival, as well as four nights of events at Barclays Center; 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony; NXT® TakeOver; Monday Night Raw®and SmackDown® Live. WWE will also host more than a dozen community outreach events, including hospital visits and Be a STAR bullying prevention rallies, designed to give back to the local region.

Over the past 11 years, WrestleMania has generated more than $1 billion in cumulative economic impact for the cities that have hosted the event. This year, WrestleMania 34 takes place Sunday, April 8 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and streamed live around the world on WWE Network.

So, who else is already planning on taking the week off??

Well it doesn't explicitly say where Axxess will be at Barclays, but either way, sounds like they will have talent all over the place.

Logistically, this is perfect for me. I am a 30 minute bus ride into Times Square.

I don't see it being actual Times Square. Ringside Fest is "in Times Square" too and they're really not. I could see them using a small part of the Javitz center or just some hotel space nearby but why would they pay for the Times Square premium? And why would the hotel want it? I can't imagine hotels in that area ever have trouble booking rooms.
