The more things change. WrestleMania 36 took place about five months ago and it is a show that almost no one will forget. The biggest wrestling show of the year was forced to take place in front of no fans due to the Coronavirus pandemic, leaving the show feeling like it was taking place in a glorified warehouse. It was WrestleMania, but it certainly didn’t feel like one. Now things might not even be ready for next year either.
We are less than seven months away from WrestleMania 37 and it is long past time to start making preparations for the show. WWE needs to know what they are going to do as far as the card goes, but they also need to know what they are going to do as far as holding the show. The Coronavirus has changed a lot of things and now it might have changed some more as far as everything else going on over the big weekend.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, the Staples Center, which is the scheduled venue for SmackDown, Takeover and Monday Night Raw over WrestleMania weekend is now selling tickets for Groupo Firme concerts on the Friday and Saturday nights of the same weekend. There is no word on any changes from WWE’s side, but if these concerts are held, the company would need a new venue to hold the events. It is not clear if this would change the location of WrestleMania 37, which is scheduled to be held at SoFi Stadium on March 28.
You might not be seeing this place for a bit. Check out WWE’s time at the Staples Center:
Opinion: I’m really curious about where things are going here as it seems that WWE might not be able to have the venues they want for the second year in a row. This time though they have several months to come up with a backup plan, meaning at worst we won’t be watching a show from the Performance Center. Even an arena show would be better than nothing and you know full well that WWE is going to find a way to have some fans in there.
