NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - The Mercedes-Benz Superdome will once again play host to Wrestlemania. The biggest professional wrestling event will return to New Orleans April 8, 2018.

Gov. John Bel Edwards and Mayor Mitch Landrieu held a press conference Tuesday morning, joined by WWE big wigs like Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Big Show, Alicia Fox, Alissa Bliss and Mark Henry.

This will be the second time in just a few years that the Superdome has played host to the event. Wrestlemania 30 came to the Superdome in April 2014, drawing more than 75,000 fans and breaking a Superdome record for how much money was taken in at the gate.
