Apparently the decision to bring WrestleMania to Los Angeles came down to one major point that WWE and the city of Los Angeles/Inglewood had to negotiate over: whether it would be WrestleMania 37 or 38 that would be coming to this area.
It was reported last year and re-iterated in the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, that the city wanted to host WrestleMania in 2021 at the new SoFi Stadium so that they could use it as a test-run to prepare for the NFL Super Bowl -- which is scheduled to be held at the same stadium in February of 2022.
Meanwhile, WWE wanted to push the venue out to WrestleMania 38 in the spring of 2022 -- after the NFL Super Bowl -- so that they would announce a record attendance figure that would beat what the football game would generate.
