With the completion of a new state of the art arena, and the renewed excitement around Atlanta sports. it’s time to bring WrestleMania back to our town.
It is officially that time of year when the ultimate showcase of sports entertainment has arrived. Six years have passed since one of the worst shows in history took place in none other than our own Atlanta. WrestleMania XXVII has been critically acclaimed as one of the worst of all time.
With Arthur Blank’s construction of Mercedes Benz Stadium, and therefore replacement for the Georgia Dome, it is officially time for WrestleMania to return to Atlanta to right the wrongs of the past. Since this event last took place here, the WWE has seen a new wave of talent and popularity engulf the brand, which is exactly why Vince McMahon owes Atlanta another chance to go down as one of the best shows in WrestleMania history.
And to reinforce this theory, here are 5 more reasons:
The Main Event was not AWESOME, but AWFUL:
WrestleMania XXVII featured The Miz vs. John Cena and while on paper it may have been something to get excited about, the end result left fans depleted and disappointed. Rather than allowing the Miz to go over clean on Cena, the writers decided to have the Rock interfere in the main event’s outcome. Little did fans know the Rock got involved to set up a much bigger match with Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII, but it ultimately came at the fans’ expense in Atlanta.

New Stadium, New Opportunity:
The Georgia Dome finally hung up its boots for the last time, and with that, swept the bad memories of WrestleMania XXVII under the turf. Mercedes Benz Stadium is new, shiny, and ready to be broken in. The venue plays a big part in attracting a crowd to an event of this size. With prime location in downtown Atlanta, plenty of places to stay, to eat, and things to do, there will be no reason that the WWE could turn down this opportunity.
