ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The biggest event in pro wrestling is coming to the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

WrestleMania 32 will be held on April 3, 2016, in the 80,000-seat venue with the giant video board that hangs over the middle of the field

WWE chairman Vince McMahon, star wrestler John Cena and former champion Hulk Hogan attended the announcement Tuesday at one of 10 clubs inside the stadium that has hosted a Super Bowl, Final Four and the first College Football Playoff championship.

Organizers will take aim at the WrestleMania attendance record of 93,173 at the Silverdome in suburban Detroit in 1987. With standing room tickets, the Cowboys’ first regular-season game in 2009 drew 105,121 fans.

This year’s WrestleMania is March 29 at the home of the San Francisco 49ers.
