What We Know About WrestleMania 37 So Far
WrestleMania 37 is almost here and I’m sure that all wrestling fans can’t wait for this year’s Show of Shows.
There are still 20 days or so before the event, but there are no WWE PPV productions before that, so it’s time to focus on WrestleMania 2021.
We don’t know every detail about the upcoming edition yet, but part of the schedule and other key facts have been announced by the WWE.
Let’s take a look at the five most important things we know about WrestleMania 37.
WrestleMania 37 Will Be a Two-Night Event
The initial plans of the WWE were to return to a single-day event for WrestleMania 37, but the final decision was that the show will take place over two nights on April 10-11, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
That obviously means more matches, so it’s highly likely that we will see pretty much all big WWE stars from both Raw and SmackDown involved.
Last year’s scheduled included a total of 20 matches, a bunch of contested belts, and all sorts of stipulations, there was even an epic Boneyard match that served as the Undertaker’s retirement.
I suspect we’ll see something similar in 2021, so all wrestling fans will be able to enjoy non-stop action during WrestleMania 37.
We Have WrestleMania 37 Betting Odds Already
I know that many of you will be looking to bet on WrestleMania 37 and you can do that right now.
The early odds for some of the matches are already out, so let’s take a quick look at them.
First in line is the battle between Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.
As you can see, the WrestleMania betting sites don’t have a favorite and you can get a decent price for both wrestlers.
The WWE Universal Championship will also be contested. Roman Reigns is expected to defend the belt against Edge in a mouthwatering clash.
The champion has a slight advantage according to the bookies, but the contender shouldn’t be underestimated. Rumors have it that Daniel Bryan might be added to the match too, so this one should be interesting.
One clash that looks one-sided on paper is the fight between Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Banks won’t be in possession of the belt when it’s all said and done if the WWE betting sites are correct with their evaluation.
Finally, we have the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship match between The New Day and the duo of AJ Styles and Omos.
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods’ reign might be coming to an end at WrestleMania 37, but it’s too early to tell.
That’s what we’ve got right now, but I’m pretty sure we will see more betting odds for every match on the schedule. I also expect some cool WrestleMania props and I will be monitoring the leading WWE sportsbooks online for more.
Anyway, if you need some help preparing your wagers, you should take a look at our WrestleMania betting guide. The page includes a list of the best gambling sites for wrestling and expert tips that can improve your strategy.
It also explores various important WrestleMania stats from previous editions that might surprise you.
WrestleMania 37 Will Be Available Only via Peacock in the USA
The American WWE Network will shut down as a standalone product on April 4 which is a week before WrestleMania 37.
That’s why the event will be only available for streaming via Peacock’s WWE Network channel in the United States.
The international viewers shouldn’t worry about it, though, because they will be able to watch WrestleMania 2021 via the WWE Network outside of the US.
WrestleMania 37 Will Feature Live Audience
I honestly can’t remember what was the last live WWE show that featured fans, it was probably somewhere at the start of 2020.
All events since the health crisis started have been without any spectators and there were rumors that the same will happen with WrestleMania 37.
That was before the WWE decided to move the event to Tampa. Florida is one of the few states where in-person attendance is allowed, so we know for a fact that the fans will be given access to the arena.
What we don’t know is the exact number of people that will watch from the stadium. The latest indications suggest that the capacity will be limited to 25,000, but there are rumors that the WWE is hoping to expand that to 35,000 or even 40,000 seats.
Either way, it will be refreshing to see the fans back and Florida has some experience in keeping the crowd safe.
The Super Bowl 2021 and other sporting events were held there since the start of the year, so the safety protocols are clear.
We Will (Most Likely) Have Celebrity Cameos
Ok, I know that I said that will be talking mostly about key facts regarding WrestleMania 37, but I just can’t help it.
There are so many cool rumors about potential celebrity cameos during the show that I feel obliged to address them.
We’ve heard speculations about the following big names so far.
- Bad Bunny: The rapper has been a constant presence ever since Royal Rumble and he has a feud with The Miz, so I won’t be shocked to see them go at it during WrestleMania 37.
- Brock Lesnar: The iconic wrestler’s last match came at WrestleMania 36, so it would be fitting for Lesnar to return a year later.
- Ronda Rousy: The former UFC champion’s contract with the WWE expires on April 10, but we’ve seen secret extensions before.
- Conor McGregor: I do not think that the Irishman will be interested in appearing at WrestleMania, but he has been struggling in the UFC lately, so why not.
I’m sure that more celebrities will be mentioned in the build-up and I can’t wait to see which of them will appear during WrestleMania 37.
