After a couple of weeks of speculation, WWE has officially announced WrestleMania 34 will "emanate from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday, April 8, 2018." It'll be the second time in four years that Sports Entertainment's (yeah I said it) biggest event will be held in the Big Easy.

I'm not overly impressed with the rumored card for this year, but Mania is more about the weekend and the atmosphere. But is returning to the same location a bad thing? I can understand why fans would like to see the show in other locations. However, if I had to return to a city for WrestleMania I would definitely pick New Orleans (right after Orlando). They're both awesomely fun places to be and the stadiums impressed me.
WrestleMania has certainly become big business and you can't blame New Orleans for wanting another piece of that pie. In 2014, WrestleMania XXX brought in $142.2 MILLION for the city. That's a lot of money for less than a week of activities.
Where would you like to see WrestleMania in the future? And have you made plans to attend 33 or 34 yet?
