Speaking to TheWrap.com, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie
McMahon said that running WrestleMania after the Super Bowl
at the Raymond James Stadium worked out well for them this
time around as they will hopefully learn from the NFL about
running a big event in a pandemic.
It certainly does, I think, this year, work to our favor to
be the event after the Super Bowl in the same stadium,
especially given all of the key learnings that the Super
Bowl will have, McMahon said. And hopefully well be able
to glean some insights from them in terms of what works,
what doesnt work, what we need to do to really ensure the
best experience possible.
McMahon refused to divulge information about capacity plans
for the show but is hopeful that fans will be in the
stadium. WWE announced that ticket information will be
announced soon. She also told TMZ.COM that theyre still
working out on logistics for fans to be part of the show but
shes thrilled and excited to have WrestleMania, hopefully,
as the first event to hold fans since last March.
And as for announcing multiple WrestleManias at the same
time, Stephanie said that it helps them for planning
purposes and it helps fans to organize their trips better.
And now we can really work with all of our partners across
the board in all of these major cities and really blow
everything out as big as we possibly can, McMahon said.
