WWE had plans to go Hollywood for WrestleMania 37, but that’s not happening during a pandemic. Ringside News exclusively reported in July that WWE is taking WrestleMania back to Tampa, and that is still the plan.
Raymond James Stadium, future home of WrestleMania 37 is also where Super Bowl LV will be held. Adam Schefter reports that the stadium will have a 20% capacity during the NFL’s biggest game of the year.
Seating capacity at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa is 65,618, maybe more with temporary seating for a Super Bowl. So attendance at Super Bowl LV could be between 13-15,000 people.
Since the Super Bowl’s expected attendance is around 13,000 to 15,000 that likely means that WWE’s show of shows will have around the same numbers. It should also be noted that WWE events usually have different available seats than NFL games since a portion of the bleachers is typically blocked off due to the stage obstructing the view. They can also seat fans on the field.
For the Super Bowl, fans will be in pods placed six feet apart from each other. We’ll have to see what WWE decides to do, but they will likely draw a lot of attention no matter how they plan on filling the stadium.
