What’s the latest?
- It had been previously reported that WWE was looking to keep independent companies out of the San Jose area for WrestleMania 31. According to The Wrestling Observer (via wrestlezone.com) both Highspots and WWNLive (EVOLVE/DGUSA) have been able so secure locations in the area for their events. At this time, ROH is undecided about running events in San Jose as they have been unable to secure a location.
WWE was trying to lock groups out of San Jose, and many facilities will not rent to wrestling organizations. San Jose State University is reportedly not renting to wrestling organizations, which means other groups looking to run the area will have to run outside of the San Jose area, which may not make it financially viable for them to try and run the events.
