MetLife Stadium prepares for WWE Wrestlemania announcement today.

New Jersey has lured WWE's WrestleMania event to MetLife Stadium, and Gov. Chris Christie will make an announcement about the April 2013 event Thursday at the sports complex, NJBIZ has learned.

The Connecticut-based World Wrestling Entertainment considered multiple venues for its annual top event that New Jersey officials expect will draw 70,000 people to MetLife Stadium, according to two sources.

State officials spent more than a year working with organizers to land the event.

The event includes a one-week SmackDown fan fest, which will be held at Izod Center.

"It's a big, big show, like a mini-Super Bowl," said a source involved in the event planning.
