WWE has not had a live audience since March … but that’s about to change, because Stephanie McMahon A number TMZ Sports WWE plans to attend fans at WrestleMania 37 !!
McMahon joined TV show “TMZ Sports” (Airs every night on FS1) … there she announced the art of WWE to hold a crowd at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa at the World Cup on April 10 and 11.
“I’m excited and excited because I hope this will be the first opportunity for us to get back to our fans,” McMahon says.
“This is the current plan. Of course the ticket details are not yet available as we are still trying to figure out all the glitches.”
McMahon tells us that WWE is following the Super Bowl (February 7, also on RJS in Tampa) … for tips on how to make sure the massive event goes smoothly.
“We’re going to learn a lot from [the NFL] Logistically, etc., and working methods are really recommended, what works, what does not work. But man, we can not wait to get in and for 2 nights, really rock the pirate ship. “
FYI, it’s been 316 days (Monday of Monday Night Raw) since the wrestling organization had live fans in the building.
Still, plans can change … and McMahon stressed that WWE’s top priority is the health of all involved.
“Working with the local organizing committee, all health, safety and safety officials is first and foremost, of course,” Stephanie says.
“Our fans, our operations, our employees, the building staff, there is a lot of different logistics that need to be determined, but I hope everything works out, and this will be the first WWE event where we actually return the WWE universe in person, and I can not wait. “
As to the exact number of fans they plan to admit … Stephanie says WWE has a plan, but at this point she is not willing to reveal the figure.
By comparison, WWE had about 100,000 fans at WM 33 at AT&T Stadium in 2016 (WWE returns to Texas for WM 38).
It is clear that the number will be much smaller this coming April. But, bottom line … humans will be there!
