• More Problems Arising For WrestleMania 37
Fans are having a tough time trying to watch Pro-Wrestling without fans in attendance.
WWE even went ahead without a single fan in attendance for their biggest show of the year – WrestleMania 36.
Now, it looks like WrestleMania 37 (which is scheduled to take place in Inglewood, California on March 28, 2021) might take place in front of 0 fans as well.
We noted before how Zach Binney (PhD of epidemiology) said that sporting events won’t have any fans in attendance until the COVID-19 vaccine arrives.
Regarding the vaccine, it is being reported that it might take 12-18 months to develop and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.
In an update to this, Eric Garcetti (Mayor of Los Angeles) noted in a conference that “large gatherings such as concerts and sporting events may not be approved in the city for at least 1 year”.
If that ends up being the case, then we could see WWE (which has been deemed as an Essential Business) doing another WrestleMania at the Performance Center in front of 0 fans.
