Since the Minnesota Vikings are building a billion dollar stadium, there were rumors that Vince McMahon wanted to host Wrestlemania there in 2017. Rumors are now surfacing that the deal has fallen through. No word yet on what the roadblock is, but it does not mean that it will never happen at that stadium. WWE generally likes to have a location locked down a year before so they can make a big announcement.
