Report: WWE WrestleMania 29 location will be New Jersey's MetLife Stadium

The WWE hasn't even touched down in Miami yet for this year's WrestleMania 28 but the location of next year's big show has already been decided.

Good news, New Jersey! You won't only be known for giving the world "The Situation" and "Snookie", you can also claim WrestleMania 29 on your résumé.

The Associated Press is reporting that the deal to bring the 29th annual WrestleMania to MetLife Stadium in the East Rutherford is all but a done deal and will be announced tomorrow (Feb. 16) by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

This is obviously a big economic coup for the state as people from not only across the country but literally across the world fly into WrestleMania's host city each and every year to take in the sights and sounds of "The Granddaddy of them All."

This also shatters the hopes of anyone hedging their bets on Cowboys Stadium being picked for the honors in 2013 and likely puts Madison Square Garden out of the running for WrestleMania 30, disheartening any traditionalists who were hoping the WWE could return to the historic venue as they did for WrestleMania X and XX.

The only concern would be the weather. The average high at the beginning of April when the event is normally held is in the low 60s while the temperature can get as low 30 degrees on especially chilly nights. The WWE has made previous attempts at outdoor WrestleManias with XIX in Seattle being the most comparable in terms of weather.

The WWE pulled it off then, can they succeed again in 2013?

Get that fake tan sprayed on and the hair spiked up, WrestleMania is headed for New Jersey!
