• WrestleMania 37’s Real Attendance Is Half Of What WWE Announced
WWE announced the following after Night 2 of WrestleMania 37:
Sell-out crowd attends WrestleMania for second straight night
“For the second consecutive night, a sell-out of 25,675 fans attended WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla., with millions more watching at home on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network around the world.
Two sell outs with a combined 51,350 fans attended both nights of WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium.”
However, Bryan Alvarez reported on Wrestling Observer Live that the real number is half of what WWE publicly announced:
“I heard night two was bigger than night one, by the way. Night one was 11,000ish and night two was maybe 15,000.”
So, a total of about 26,000 fans attended WrestleMania 37.
The Wrestling Observer also reported that fans are now expected back at the SummerSlam 2021 PPV.
