It’s time to start worrying. WrestleMania 36 was one for the ages as WWE was forced to run the event in front of no fans due to the spread of the Coronavirus. The disease has changed the way the wrestling world works and it is not clear how long things are going to be all over the place. That very well may include WrestleMania 37 as well, and WWE is starting to figure out where they are.
WWE has not had any fans in the arena for their shows in a very long time now and that is likely to be the case for a good while to come. Not only does that change the way that wrestling looks, but it also hurts WWE’s financial status. The company can hang on for a long time, but WrestleMania itself is the most important day of the year for WWE. So what can we expect for next year?
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WrestleMania 37 is still planned to be held at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. However, there is no word on if the state will allow the company to run a show with fans involved. The company would like to receive a word from California by December. It is not clear where WrestleMania would take place if California is unavailable.
WrestleMania 37 / Los Angeles update: WWE is still very much planning to run the event as scheduled. However, they don’t want this determination looming. Heard internally WWE would like a decision by mid December from the state of CA on large scale gatherings. Probably not good.

WrestleMania has a history in California. Check out some of its time there:
Opinion: I’m not sure how this is going to go but given how California has been doing as of late, I can’t imagine them allowing 75,000+ people to be in attendance for a wrestling show. That won’t be the case everywhere though, as there are going to be some places allowing fans to be around. WWE can make some adjustments as necessary and that could make for a big surprise as we come up on WrestleMania 37.
Where do you think WrestleMania will take place? How many fans will WWE be able to put in the building? Let us know in the comments below.
