WWE news: WrestleMania 37 could take place in front of 65,000 fans next year

WrestleMania could take place in Tampa next year

Earlier this year, the coronavirus pandemic derailed almost all professional sport across the world. 

But there was one company that just kept on rolling... WWE. 

Vince McMahon wasn't going to let COVID wreck his plans and he called an audible to ensure pro-wrestling could continue. 

Right now, there's only one thing missing. The fans.

Since March, WWE have been running empty arena shows with no paying audience.

They've moved around venues too, starting in the Performance Center before moving to the Amway Center. 

At the latter, fans are virtually present inside the 'ThunderDome' but this has only been seen as a temporary solution.

The bottom line is, WWE need real fans back soon. Otherwise, the product will go stale, no matter how good the action inside the ring is. 

WWE's ThunderDome can't last forever

Luckily for Vince McMahon, he may soon get his wish and reports suggest WrestleMania 37 could take place in front of a massive crowd of 65,000. 

Sports broadcaster Andy Slater claims that the 'Miami Dolphins have been given clearance to go to full capacity of 65,000 fans at Hard Rock Stadium' by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. 

The Sun follow that up by reporting a spokesperson for the Governor has reiterated that coronavirus restrictions had been dropped for the state.

This means other stadiums and venues in Florida can follow what Hard Rock Stadium are doing and open to full capacity soon.

We've already heard rumours that WWE were ready to move WrestleMania 37 away from California and back to Tampa, where this year's show was originally set to emanate from.

If that decision is made official, then fans will be able to pack into the 65,890 seater Raymond James Stadium.

For better or for worse, right now it sounds like WrestleMania 37 will go ahead with a live crowd.
