While the Coronavirus pandemic may have caused WrestleMania 36 to take place without any fans in attendance, we were all very excited when the company begun promoting WrestleMania 37 for April 2021 during the broadcast.
However, earlier this week, the Mayor of Los Angeles said that major sporting events and concerts in California may not take place for over a year, putting the status of next year’s marquee pay-per-view in question.
It has emerged, thanks to reliable Twitter source WrestleVotes, that WWE is considering other venues for the “showcase of the immortals” if California isn’t allowing big events by April 2021.
The issue of California potentially not allowing large gatherings isn’t the only issue facing WWE right now. The SoFi stadium’s opening has been delayed until further notice due to the pandemic. WWE is considering other options in case it is not finished.
Full disclaimer – it’s far too early to speculate on specific details, however:
WWE has begun researching a “plan B” on an alternative site to host WrestleMania 37 if the state of California is not allowing large gatherings and / or SoFi Stadium is not finished on time.

WrestleVotes has not confirmed what other locations WWE is considering. However, based on the fact that Florida’s governor has declared WWE as “essential media”, don’t be surprised if this “plan B” location is in Florida.
