Something I Missed About Mania XLI

There is something I missed when I wrote about the announcement that WrestleMania XLI will take place from Las Vegas next April.

The dates for the weekend of WWE's biggest event of its calendar are, as I noted in Sunday's post, April 19th and 20th 2025.

Easter Sunday falls on April 20th next year.

It wasn't something I thought about when I wrote about the news. I realised yesterday that Easter Sunday falls on that date in '25.

To highlight - once more - just how different the company will be with new ownership other than Vince McMahon, having Mania on Easter weekend is just that.

McMahon had always kept WrestleMania away from Eastertime. On most occasions in WrestleMania history, the event would circle around the holiday but never land ON it.

If I see a 'Wrestling Eggstravaganza' pun next year, or even anytime this year for that matter, I'll tear my hair out.
