Backstage Update On Plans For WrestleMania 37, WWE Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

— WWE has announced this year’s WrestleMania will follow suit to last year’s with two shows over two nights rather than the traditional one night PPV. The projected run times right now are for each night to be four-and-a-half hours long compared to one huge seven-hour show. The Observer reports that while it may seem WWE has switched to this sort of set up, it is not expected to be the plan moving forward for future WrestleManias.

— It is unclear what WWE has lined up for other activities but the plan for the Tampa area would include Raw and Smackdown in the same market, though the Thunderdome setup does complicate matters, according to the Observer Newsletter. Tropicana Field will not be available due to baseball but Amalie Arena, which was the site scheduled to host Raw, Smackdown and NXT last year during WrestleMania weekend, is available. The other option of course is to run the shows right out of Raymond James Stadium with fans. The Hall of Fame ceremony, which was postponed from 2020, was being discussed as taking place without fans with last year’s inductees.
