World Wrestling Entertainment announced yesterday that Wrestlemania 31 – not the upcoming one but the one in 2015 – will be held in the forthcoming Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, better known as the future home of the San Francisco 49ers. WWE will hold “Wrestlemania Week” events throughout in Santa Clara and San Jose. And with Silicon Valley being known for its world-leading tech scene, Vince McMahon promised that Wrestlemania 31 will set a new standard for events in sports stadiums and will be "the most interactive experience in WrestleMania history."

It’s unknown right now exactly how Wrestlemania 31 will be the most interactive event ever (WWE did unveil an interactive vote-for-who-you-want-to-see pay per view in years past), but McMahon has the backing of Santa Clara’s mayor Jamie Matthews and 49ers CEO Jed York, the latter calling WWE “a model for innovation”, which goes perfectly with the vision of Levi’s Stadium, which is to “bring together all that is special about the Bay Area through the use of innovation and technology.”

Niners tight end Vernon Davis sure seems excited.
