• WrestleMania 37 Might Take Place In Front Of 0 Fans
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 takes place on March 28, 2021) might take place in front of 0 fans as well.
According to Zach Binney (PhD of epidemiology), 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.
While fans can still enjoy new pro-wrestling programming, as WWE & AEW are still airing weekly shows, it’s safe to say that we won’t be seeing any fans in attendance anytime soon.
