A new era has begun in WWE after Vince McMahon announced his resounding retirement. The now former Chairman of the company decided to say enough last July, thanks to the advancing age and the heavy accusations of misconduct that hit him following an investigation by the Wall Street Journal.
Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team. The 14-time world champion proved to have a very different philosophy from that of his illustrious predecessor and did not hesitate to make a series of radical changes to the shows.
The Game also brought back several stars who were released during the pandemic, including Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, and Johnny Gargano. According to insiders, HHH is considering further expanding the roster and has tons of ideas for the next few years.
WWE may host WrestleMania 43 in Nashville, but only if a new stadium is built.
Latest news on WrestleMania 43
According to reports from 'The Tennessean', WWE would have chosen the city of Nashville to host WrestleMania 43 in 2027.
The 'Showcase of the Immortals' is the most important event on the WWE calendar and the first edition took place in 1985. The 38th edition of Mania was staged in Texas on 2 and 3 April 2022, while the 39th edition will be held a stone's throw from Hollywood.
According to some insiders, talks between WWE and the city of Nashville have gotten more intense in recent weeks. “Nashville has established itself as a cultural center and a land of opportunity. WWE is looking forward to hosting many events in this city in the coming years" - reads a note released by the company.
Recall that the Nissan Stadium in Nashville hosted the 2022 edition of SummerSlam, in which Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar met for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The heroine of the evening was local darling Bianca Belair, who defeated Becky Lynch to keep the Raw Women's Championship.
Butch Spyridon, CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., reportedly met with the Metro Council and said that a deal is in place with WWE to host the event if the $2.1 billion stadium is constructed in time. "(WrestleMania) is a weeklong event potentially worth upwards of $200 million and is broadcast in 57 countries," Spyridon told the Council.
"This is just the beginning of what our city can do if the stadium deal is approved. Deep appreciation to WWE, the Titans and the state for getting this done."
