In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about WrestleMania, with the h*t period of the year that is in fact getting closer and closer, in view of the Royal Rumble which, like every year, will open the famous road that leads to the most anticipated and famous PPV world of pro-wrestling, the so-called Road to WrestleMania.
Also this year, despite the global pandemic, WWE will stage its best version of the Showcase of the Immortals, after last year's edition which aired for the first time in history on a delayed basis and for two evenings in a row, from the Orlando company's Performance Center.
This year, however, the McMahons would be trying to do everything to not have an empty arena, as happened last April, possibly changing the date of the event and postponing it.
Will WrestleMania finally land at the Raymond James Stadium?
According to what was revealed in the past few hours by the well-known overseas site, Fightful, the McMahon company may have already decided to postpone the Showcase of the Immortals, so as to be able to allow its fans to take part in the event, with the initial date that it would move from late March to almost mid-April.
From the pages of the well-known site, it is clear that: "Everything is still subject to considerable change given the nature of the moment worldwide, but Fightful has learned that internally, plans for WrestleMania are to hold it on April 11, 2021, and not two weeks earlier, as initially confirmed, on March 27th"
All this should be used by the company to ensure that the vaccination plan becomes more and more alive, considering that the situation that closer to mid-April could be much better than now and with some precautions that must be taken anyway, it could, however, allow the McMahon-owned company to be able to insert several fans in the ThunderDome in Orlando or anywhere else the federation will choose for its Grandaddy of Them All.
However, the report from Fightful also noted that the Raymond James Stadium, the originally-planned location for last year's WrestleMania, may still be available as the venue currently has no other events scheduled in on the date in question.
Given that the world is currently still in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, this apparent move from WWE should come as no surprise. Pushing the WrestleMania date back by a couple of weeks will give the company more time to properly plan things out and deliver an event that will both be best for business and the fans.
