WWE made a major announcement tonight regarding the next three WrestleMania shows.
We previously reported that WWE was changing the location of WrestleMania 37 from SoFi Stadium in California to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the original site of WrestleMania 36 that would be held over two nights at the WWE Performance Center with only essential personnel in attendance.
This was confirmed tonight.
WrestleMania 37 will take place over two nights from Saturday, April 10 to Sunday, April 11 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, WWE has been stationed in Florida performing shows at the WWE Performance Center and Amway Center in Orlando and Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
WrestleMania 38 will take place in the Arlington/Dallas area of Texas at AT&T Stadium on April 3, 2022. This is being advertised as a one night event. AT&T Stadium was the location of WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
WrestleMania 39 will take place in the Inglewood/Los Angeles area of California at SoFi Stadium on April 2, 2023. SoFi Stadium was originally supposed to be the host of WrestleMania 37 this year. This is also being advertised as a one night event.
