WWE is considering St. Louis at a top city candidate to host a future WrestleMania event at the Edwards Jones Dome.
Company officials recently met with the St. Louis Sports & Visitors Commission about hosting WWE’s biggest event. But they may face problems with booking the city’s Edward Jones Dome, as it’s home to the Stan Kroenke-owned St. Louis Rams. Wrestling fans will remember Kroenke from 2009 when RAW was bumped from the Pepsi Center in Denver when the Nuggets made it to the NBA playoffs. Kroenke didn’t think his team would make it, so he booked out the arena for other events like RAW during the playoffs. Vince McMahon went on RAW and tried to start a feud with Kroenke over the “Denver Debacle.”
