Fans return to the arena for WrestleMania 37

WrestleMania 2021 saw the return of fans in the stadium for the first time since March 2020. The Raymond James Stadium was echoing with the cheers of a sell-out crowd of 25,675 on Night-1 and a sell-out crowd of 25,675 again. 51,350 was the total for both nights, as reported by WWE.

The official website of WWE stated, “For the second consecutive night, a sell-out of 25,675 fans attended WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla., with millions more watching at home on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network around the world. Two sell outs with a combined 51,350 fans attended both nights of WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium.”

Safety Precautions Taken for WrestleMania 37

The tickets sold were in relation to the local health guidelines provided to WWE. Only a few tickets were up for grabs so as to not completely pack the stadium with fans.

WWE stated on their official site, “Additional safety measures included health screenings and temperature checks prior to entry into Raymond James Stadium, mask requirements, social distancing, mobile ticketing, cashless concessions and enhanced sanitization throughout the venue.”

While the result of a few matches did not have the fans cheering their lungs out, surely the feeling of being back did. The fans and the WWE superstars have waited their fair share of time to get that feeling back, and get the energy and intensity back in the area. From March 2020 to WrestleMania 37, WWE had to shift their shows to an enclosed space.

The Covid regulations stated that no large gathering of people was allowed, and so WWE had to improvise. They first shifted to their Performance Center, and from there they moved to the ThunderDome. WrestleMania proved to be a breath of fresh air for the WWE Universe and the Superstars. After entertaining 50,000+ members of the WWE Universe, the product will once more emanate from behind closed doors.
