During an interview with TMZ Sports, Stephanie McMahon spoke about the recent WWE announcement that WrestleMania 37 will be held over two nights in April at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
Stephanie confirmed that WWE is hoping that this will be their first main roster show with a live crowd since March 2020, when the Coronavirus pandemic forced WWE to move to no-fans shows.
“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.”
Stephanie McMahon also said that WWE will look to next month’s Super Bowl show, which will also be held at Raymond James, as a guide for running a show at the venue during the COVID pandemic:
“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.”
As Stephanie emphasised during her interview, WWE is hoping to have fans at the stadium for WrestleMania right now, but things can always change if COVID cases in Florida continue to worsen.
This is confirmation of a report from Dave Meltzer over the weekend which suggested that WWE was hoping to fans at the venue for WrestleMania 37 in April. You can read more about that report by clicking here.
