With Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, welcoming back fans in a limited capacity, this marks the first WWE pay-per-view to have live fans since 2020’s Elimination Chamber. Unfortunately, Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 was delayed thanks to the weather in Florida, as rain and lightning began to occur right as the pay-per-view was set to start.
