The Biggest Wrestling Event of the Year is happening this weekend across two nights. Fans are back, and there’s a stacked fight card for wrestling fans across the world to be excited for.
Here’s everything you need to know about WrestleMania 37.
Two Nights & A Crowd in Attendance!
Last year, for the first time ever, WWE WrestleMania 36 was held over two nights – an adjustment made by the company as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The company clearly saw this as an interesting concept to pursue, so have kept the two-night structure for this year.
On top of that, WWE will welcome back fans for the first time since the pandemic hit back in March 2020. For those that remember, last year’s WrestleMania took place in an empty WWE Performance Center with zero fans.
Mania 37 will have a limited capacity of 25,000 people on both nights in the Raymond James Stadium located in Tampa, Florida. Of course, it’s not going to be anywhere near the attendance record (101,764 at WrestleMania 32) but it’s a positive step in the right direction for attending fans.
WrestleMania 37: Who’s Fighting?
With every WWE title on the line, there are a number of matches that the WWE Universe are eagerly-awaiting to see.
Though not officially confirmed, the main event of the first night is likely to be the highly-anticipated women’s singles match, as Sasha Banks defends her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair.
Arguably the biggest fight of Mania 37 will main event the second and final night, and close off an incredible week for WWE. Universal champion Roman Reigns will defend his title in a triple threat match, against Edge and Daniel Bryan.
