WWE will return to a live main-roster event at WrestleMania 37 for the first time since the commencement of the COVID-19 epidemic, with 25,000 spectators attending the two-day event in Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. The announcement was made by WWE CEO George Barrios during his weekly press conference.
WrestleMania is one of the biggest events in sports entertainment each year, and this will be the first time that it has been held as part of a doubleheader due to the coronavirus pandemic. On April 4, WWE will host Elimination Chamber, an all-women's pay-per-view featuring eight competitors competing for four spots in the women's Royal Rumble match on April 7.
The decision to go ahead with WrestleMania 37 comes after several weeks of discussions between Vince McMahon and his top executives about how they could continue to celebrate one of the world's biggest events while ensuring the safety of fans, performers and staff. The original plan had been to hold both nights of the show on Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 but this idea was dropped when it became clear that this would not be possible without putting many people at risk.
Instead, the company decided to move the opening night to Sunday, March 15. This will allow more time to promote the event and ensure that there are no issues with traffic or parking.
WWE WrestleMania 37 tickets will be available in 2021. The capacity for each night of the concert at Raymond James Stadium is set at 25,000 people. WWE will stage an event with fans in attendance for the first time since the commencement of the COVID-19 outbreak. The company has not announced who its guest performers will be.
