Detroit Sports Commission Debunks Report Of Bid For WWE WrestleMania 43



A recent report by The Detroit News suggested that the Detroit Sports Commission was preparing a bid to host WWE WrestleMania 43 in 2027.

The event would mark the 20th anniversary of WrestleMania 23 at Ford Field and the 40th anniversary of WrestleMania 3 at the Pontiac Silverdome.

However, the Detroit Sports Commission has issued a statement today denying these claims.

The statement confirms that the Commission is not preparing a bid to host WrestleMania 43 in the state. It reads,

“Contrary to recent speculation, the DSC is not currently in the process of preparing a bid to host WrestleMania in 2027. However, we remain enthusiastic about the prospect of hosting future major WWE events.

“The Detroit Sports Commission values its strong relationship with WWE and is proud to have hosted some of their premier events across the Metro Detroit region. The DSC consistently evaluates opportunities and actively pursues bids for potential future events, leveraging our longstanding relationships with national governing bodies, sanctioning bodies, and event owners. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with WWE and welcoming more thrilling events to our vibrant city in the years to come.”

The Detroit Sports Commission had previously negotiated to host WWE SummerSlam at Ford Field in August 2023. The event, which resulted in a reported $8.5 million gate and an attendance of 59,194 people, marked WWE’s highest-grossing non-WrestleMania event to date.
