WWE is holding WrestleMania 37 on two nights. April 10th and 11th will be a busy time for pro wrestling as the world focuses on Raymond James Stadium, a venue that lost last year’s Mania event.
Ringside News exclusively reported in July that WWE wouldn’t be holding WrestleMania in Sofi Stadium this year. We reported at the time that a do-over at Raymond James Stadium was likely.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed WrestleMania 37’s ticket situation. He said that Governor Ron DeSantis is “bought and paid for.” Linda McMahon promising $18.5 million to the state of Florida a day prior to WWE being declared as an essential business is further proof of that.
Tama Bay’s NFL team is able to get around 14,000 fans in their stadium which has a capacity of 65,890. WWE will sell as many seats as they can to celebrate the return of live fans.
“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been selling about 14,000 tickets to Raymond James Stadium for home games. You know, obviously as we all know Ron DeSantis, the Governor of Florida, he’s bought and paid for essentially. So, they’re gonna be able to do whatever they wanna do. I presume this will be their big thing of the first WWE show with fans.”
It was noted that if the Buccaneers are able to sell just over 14,000, then WWE might be able to sell the same amount of tickets. They will have two nights of wrestling with as many fans as possible.
We have not heard any details about ticket information yet. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see WWE sell two-night ticket deals. No seating chart is available yet either, so it’s always possible that they will be able to sell more tickets than the Buccaneers do while utilizing the football field’s massive area around the ring.
