WWE Touts Sell-Out Of Over 25,000 For WrestleMania 37

Also notes that safety protocols were followed

WrestleMania 37 was WWE's first event in front of a paying crowd in 13 months, emanating from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. And while the stadium couldn't be filled to capacity, WWE did manage to draw a considerable crowd nonetheless.

WWE put out a release, claiming 25,675 fans were in attendance for WrestleMania. By the parameters of diminished ticket availability, WWE declared this to be a sell-out.

The release reads, "A sell-out of 25,675 fans attended Night One of WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, FL with millions more watching at home on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network around the world.

"Adhering to local health guidelines, a limited number of tickets were sold for WrestleMania, with all in attendance seated in socially-distanced pods. Additional safety measures included health screenings and temperature checks prior to entry into Raymond James Stadium, mask requirements, social distancing, mobile ticketing, cashless concessions, and enhanced sanitization throughout the venue."

WrestleMania 37's first night featured Bianca Belair winning the SmackDown Women's title from Sasha Banks, Bobby Lashley retaining the WWE title over Drew McIntyre, and Bad Bunny shining in his first ever wrestling match.
