WWE will hold their first event with fans in over a year with WrestleMania 37 this weekend from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida with a total of 50,000 fans in attendance – 25,000 per night.
It’s been previously reported by a few different media outlets that WWE doesn’t have plans to hold future events with fans in attendance at least for the next few months. The belief is that WWE returning with weekly TV events with fans in attendance could start as early as July or in the fall.
WWE will hold its ThunderDome setup at the Yuengling Center starting this month.
WWE President Nick Khan made an appearance on The Colin Cowherd Podcast to talk about a wide range of topics. During it, he spoke about how WWE doesn’t have plans in place just yet on when they’ll return to holding weekly events with fans in attendance, but when they do, it just be for TV events at first.
“So for this weekend’s event, 25,000 per night, 25,000 for Saturday, 25,000 for Sunday. It’s our first go back for our performers with fans in attendance. Everyone’s excited. From there, we’re not going back on tour yet, but we’re plotting out when we’re going to return. Once we return, there’s no going back. So, once we return, it’s going to be twice a week or with NXT, three times a week,” Khan stated (quotes can be found at the 51-minute mark).
