    But we'll have to wait. The match is already booked for next year -- in Atlanta.
    Vince needs to stop bullshitting and give St. Louis a WrestleMania. Seriously.

    Yeah, I realize this post is three years old but it still holds true that the only two places that could host WM would be Busch Stadium and the Edward Jones Dome. Busch would be problematic because it's an outdoor stadium so weather would be a concern. Also, WM always happens at the beginning of April right around the same time the baseball season starts so that could be a scheduling nightmare. That leaves the Edward Jones Dome. There's a reason the Rams dislike it: it's not good. I mean, it's okay. But, it's not anything than a generic, non-distinct dome. When WM was in New Orleans WWE played up the Mardi Gras aspect and the French-inspired culture of New Orleans rather than the 40+ year old dome. St. Louis, for as much as I love it, doesn't have anything that makes it stick out like New Orleans. We have a lot of Italian immigrants. So...what do you do with that? Are we going to have a divas toasted ravioli match? For St. Louis to get a WM, the Rams need to get the open-air stadium they want.

    Yep I agree Zero. There's no way Wrestlemania comes here unless there's a new Rams football stadium available

    Joe Garagiola and Yogi Berra grew up across the street from each other here in St. Louis in an area known as "The Hill." The Hill is an historically Italian neighborhood.

    Ric Flair vs. King Kong Brody at The CheckerDome (aka The Arena) from 1983!

    Yeah, I agree Helton, the appeal of a new 'state-of-the-art' dome has "Win" written all over it for everyone involved.

    And I agree as well with Zero, the appeal of a brand new dome in St. Louis has win written all over it for everyone involved, I think. When Ford Field was built here in downtown Detroit, I think WrestleMania was one of the first huge events booked in there, along with the Super Bowl and the NCAA Final Four.

    So is there any progress going on with the new dome in St. Louis?

    If the new stadium is built it will be open-air not a dome. WM could be held at Edward Jones Done, though, if it got a facelift.

    IIRC, the night before this event, Pillman died.

    Vince was like "we found Pilman dead...so....here's something we hope you enjoy..."

    Glory Pro Wrestling, based in the Metro East portion of the StL area (and run by Michael Elgin, I think), is having a card this coming Sunday featuring Elgin vs. Cody Rhodes. That'd be cool to see. It's not close to me, though, so I'm not sure about going.
