WWE recently announced that WWE WrestleMania 37 will be held over two nights at Raymond James Stadium, and Stephanie McMahon has elaborated on the company’s plans for the show.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, McMahon revealed that WWE hopes to have live fans in attendance at this year’s “Showcase of the Immortals.”
“I’m thrilled and excluded because hopefully this will be the first opportunity for us to have our fans back in attendance,” said McMahon. ” You know, that’s the current plan. Of course, ticket information is not available yet because we’re still trying to figure out all the different machinations.”
McMahon noted that WWE will be able to learn from the NFL’s policies, as the Super Bowl will be played at Raymond James Stadium just two months before WrestleMania.
“We’re really lucky though because the Super Bowl is our lead-in this year from Raymond James Stadium, so we’re gonna learn a lot from them logistically, etc,” said McMahon. “We can’t wait to come in and for two nights, hopefully, really rock that pirate ship.”

On a similar note, WrestleVotes reports that WWE plans to allow at least 25,000 fans at each night of WWE WrestleMania 37. Naturally, with this development, WWE is also planning on how to proceed after the show. “Some would like a soft ‘reopening’ of the touring schedule for Live TVs…”, WrestleVotes writes.
The report notes that an attempt to continue using the ThunderDome after WrestleMania 37 could be difficult.
WWE is planning on permitting upwards of 25,000 fans for WrestleMania on each night. The real internal discussions are what to do after. Some would like a soft “reopening” of the touring schedule for Live TVs as continuing the ThunderDome post Mania comes with location headaches.
