Last week, it was announced that plans for Wrestlemania had changed due to the ongoing global pandemic and we would no longer be having Wrestlemania Hollywood this year. Instead, it was revealed that Wrestlemania 37 would be taking place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Florida, which was the original venue for for last year’s show.
The question on everyone’s mind following the announcement was, what does this mean for fans?
Well, in an interview with TMZ, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer, Stephanie McMahon was asked about it. She had this to say:
“I’m thrilled and excited because, hopefully, this will be the first opportunity for us to have our fans back in attendance, that’s the current plan. Of course, ticket information is not available yet ’cause we’re still trying to figure out all the different machinations.”Credit: TMZ
Raymond James Stadium will be hosting the Superbowl in just a few weeks, and McMahon has said that they will be using them as a guide for what the attendance policies will be when Wrestlemania comes around.
“We’re gonna learn a lot from [the NFL] logistically, etc., and really best practices, what works, what doesn’t work,” she said. “But, man, we can’t wait to come in and for two nights hopefully really rock that pirate ship.”Credit: TMZ
This would make the show, the first of WWE’s to have fans in attendance in person. Until now they have used different methods of creating the atmosphere, most notably, the introduction of the Thunderdome.
Wrestlemania 37 is set to once again take place over two nights: Saturday 10th, and Sunday 11th of April. Only time will tell in what capacity WWE allow fans to attend.
