It was previously reported that WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon recently revealed that this year's WrestleMania 37 PPV is scheduled to have live fans in the crowd. The same blockbuster news was confirmed by WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. According to @Wrestlevotes, WWE's current plan is to have at least 25,000 fans on each night since WrestleMania 37 is scheduled to take place over the span of two nights.

However, the bigger question is what will WWE decide to do after The Grandest Stage of Them All. They have reportedly decided that a soft “re-opening” of the WWE touring schedule for live TV tapings will be an option as continuing with the ThunderDome setup after WrestleMania 37 would come with location-related headaches.

There's no word yet on what the WWE will do post-WrestleMania or if resuming with touring is a viable option since the COVID-19 pandemic still exist, but updates will be provided once made available. WWE WrestleMania 37 is set to take place on Saturday, April 10th and Sunday, April 11th from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

I get wanting to have fans in the arena for Mania... but it still seems pretty stupid to me considering we're still in the middle of a pandemic.

While you're here though, drop in any WrestlMania rumours that you've heard. Let's hear them all, from the ridiculous to the plausible.

One rumour flying around is that Bryan will win the Rumble to face Reigns at Wrestlemania.

Just watched the Rumble and top show! A++ returns. My favorite women's wrestler ever is Victoria and my favorite men's wrestler ever is The Hurricane and they both had suprise cameos so double yay.

Knowing what we know now, after the Rumble... what would you guys book for WrestleMania? Don't worry about rumours, how would YOU book it with the current Rumble winners? For me, I'd go:

WWE Championship
If Edge loses, he retires
Drew McIntyre (c) vs Edge

Universal Championship
Roman Reigns (c) vs Daniel Bryan

RAW Womens Championship
Asuka (c) vs Nikki Cross

SD Womens Championship
Sasha Banks (c) vs Bianca Belair

Charlotte vs Lacey Evans w/Ric Flair

Randy Orton vs The Fiend w/ Alexa Bliss

Mustafa Ali vs Kofi Kingston

Damien Priest vs Sheamus

Intercontinental Championship - Ladder match
Big E vs Cesaro vs Shinsuke Nakamura vs Sami Zayn vs Apollo Crews

WWE star Charlotte Flair was originally one of the few wrestlers who were featured on the company's advertisements for the upcoming WrestleMania PPV, however, in updated graphics that WWE is pushing, she has been edited out and not replaced by anyone. The other wrestlers who were featured are all still present and this casts a lot of doubt about her status, given that her fiance Andrade recently requested and was granted his release from the company. Flair is also branching out into other forms of entertainment, such as movies, but it would seem strange to remove her from ads due to that. Another reason could also be that her previously scheduled match against Asuka may not be going down due to the latter's injury but historically that has not prevented WWE from pushing appearances. Dave Meltzer of f4wonline.com reports that WWE is being "secretive" about Charlotte's status but that her removal from ads has nothing to do with her upcoming movie.

With Lashley vs McIntyre confirmed, and Bryan vs Edge vs Roman surely on the way, the main events are shaping up to be good. Let's hope the undercard can deliver too.

I've only watched the first night so far, but I'll get around to that later this week. Work has just got in the way.

As for night one, it was good. The only bit I didn't overly like was the tag team turmoil match which was just a bit boring and how they've done the show (more on that in a bit).

Bianca Belair winning was great.

Didn't expect Cesaro to win, but this was easily the match of the night for me despite it being shorter than I'd hoped. A short match is better than one that feels like it's gone on too long though. Happy if they want to do a rematch and give it a bit more time. Cesaro has been good for years though, so hopefully this will be the start of a push for him.

Now, the format of the show. In part, I like that they've split it because Wrestlemania was getting a bit too long with a ton of filler to drag it out longer than was necessary. But I dislike it more I think and it's probably because all I can think is that they're just doing it to make more historic moments. So this was the first time two black women have main evented WrestleMania, but all I can think is that they haven't because the main event is night two. It's like when they had Daneil Bryan lose his title in seconds to Sheamus to have that historic moment. Have it in one night and have them actually main event the show - and lets face it, that match was very good match and could easily have closed out a Wrestlemania card and people would be talking about it for a while. Just a sneaky way to make history whilst still keeping the Universal Championship match main event as well. It probably only bothers me though. I'd just rather them doing this properly and having them main event Wrestlemania, not Wrestlemania part one. That's not a main event to me. That's half way.

It was a very good show though overall. Nothing really bad and really having an actual crowd would have probably helped make the tag team turmoil match seem better.

Over both nights I thought it was a really good show. Not all the results went the way I wanted but we saw some enjoyable matches and cool moments and I can’t ask for much more from Mania.
