The first-ever WrestleMania emanated from New York's Madison Square Garden.

The "World's Most Famous Arena" also hosted WrestleManias 10 and 20, which saw some of wrestling's most memorable moments unfold.

WrestleMania 30, however, will not follow in line with the per-decade, MSG tradition.

Instead, the WWE extravaganza will take a page out of the recently-transpired Super Bowl XLVII and take up shop at New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome, according to a radio station in the area.

The report comes from, which picked up the story:

WWE's WrestleMania PPV is coming to New Orleans's Superdome for the first time in 2014, reports a local radio station in New Orleans.

An official announcement is expected this month, around the time of WWE's Elimination Chamber PPV in New Orleans.

Given the fact that this year's WrestleMania and Hall of Fame ceremony are booked at MetLife Stadium and Madison Square Garden, respectively, this news is no surprise.

WrestleMania is perhaps only second to the letters WWE as being synonymous with a global brand that appeals to audiences far and wide.

Thus, it wouldn't be in the company's best interest, tradition or not, to run the same market two years in a row.

And, while WrestleMania 30 won't entrance the WWE Universe until spring 2014, one could likely expect a crowd of over 80,000 fans and a main event befitting of the milestone.
