In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon said that Chicago might see a WrestleMania in the future.
When asked why Chicago hasn’t gotten a WrestleMania lately, McMahon didn’t give a specific answer, but he didn’t shut down the door for a return.
“I wouldn’t say Chicago is out of the running,” said McMahon. “We can do colder environments. We went to (MetLife) Stadium (in New Jersey). People wear coats to football. Why won’t they were jackets and so forth to WrestleMania? They will. Chicago will definitely be in the running in the future.”
The last WrestleMania held in Chicago was in 2006 when the Allstate Arena hosted WrestleMania 22. That was the last time since then that WrestleMania was held inside an arena and all WrestleManias that followed that were held in big stadiums.
Chicago had 3 WrestleManias in total including part of WrestleMania II in 1986, WrestleMania 13 in 1997, and 22.
