• Tony Khan Comments On WrestleMania 37 Weather Issues

WrestleMania 37 faced weather issues before the show began and after the main show began.

As a matter of fact, the main show got stopped due to rain as soon as it began.

Weather Alert Raymond James Stadium WWE WrestleMania 37

AEW President Tony Khan tweeted the following about this situation:

“On Wednesday Nov. 11, sideways rain was blowing in, our elevated ring wasn’t affected but I felt the ringside mats were slippery & unsafe.

10 minutes to showtime I had a lightbulb idea to lay down carpet at ringside & remembered we had a Red Carpet. It totally solved the problem.

The crew chopped up the red carpet and were still laying it down at 8:02pm as the Live show started. The first match was Brian Cage vs. Matt Sydal. I asked Taz to go out and do an opening promo and stretch so we could shoot him close-up while the crew was putting the carpet down.

Also I’m not trolling anyone, I just think it’s a safe approach that I thought would be worth mentioning.

It occurred to me last minute too, and it would’ve tremendously affected the matches that night if I hadn’t done it, + it potentially prevented some injuries from occurring.”
