In the last year of pro-wrestling recently ended, WWE and all the other companies of the discipline in the world, have unfortunately had to suffer a devastating backlash due to the world pandemic, which for several months has blocked all wrestling shows, including world tours and PPV, leaving the possibility only to large companies to be able to broadcast their events on TV or online.
All the small world companies that worked on live shows, where the public was king and where the only successes were those of the sale of tickets for live shows, unfortunately, disappeared one by one, leaving the field only to large companies like NJPW, WWE, AEW, Impact Wrestling and a few others, to be able to continue to work on a solid foundation.
It was revealed, confirming recent reports, that WrestleMania 37 will indeed take place in Flordia's Raymond James Stadium. Like WrestleMania 36, the event will take place over two nights, Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11.
This is a few weeks later than initially scheduled.
WWE posted an official video statement on the WrestleMania update
As well as this, WWE announced the dates and locations of WrestleMania 38 and 39. The AT&T Stadium in Texas was unveiled as the location of WrestleMania 38, with the event so far pitched to take place on one night, Sunday, April 3.
Initially, WrestleMania 37 was supposed to be WrestleMania: Hollywood, but this has now been pushed back to 2023. WrestleMania 39 has been announced to be taking place in LA's Sofi Stadium on Sunday, April 2. Again, back to just one night.
At a time when fans were still quite dubious about how this year's edition of the Royal Rumble could go, WWE took everyone by surprise by announcing the dates for the next three editions of the Showcase of the. Immortals, including the locations from where the most anticipated show of the year in the pro-wrestling world will be broadcast.
If this year's edition will be broadcast once again in two distinct evenings, those of 10 and 11 April 2021, the editions of the next two years will instead be broadcast in a single evening, or on 3 April 2022 and on April 2, 2023.
A funny video was posted by WWE on all its social channels to reveal the update, including on its official website, with Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks and John Cena, who played the part of the news reporters who went to communicate the news to their fans.
As for the locations, however, this year's edition will air from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, where last year's edition was initially supposed to air before the outbreak of the pandemic. Next year's edition will be broadcast from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, while the 2023 edition will be broadcast as previously hypothesized for this year, from SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California.
