WWE has officially unveiled the WrestleMania 37 stage from the venue, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida. A new video of Corey Graves and Kayla Braxton unveiling the custom set for the Show of Shows has been released through the official YouTube channel of WWE.
As expected, there’s a giant pirate-themed set alongside the ship that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers already have in the stadium. Cannons, skulls, pirate flags and more could be spotted.
WrestleMania 37 takes place this weekend – Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11 with around 25,000 fans on both nights. Since the actual capacity of the stadium is much more, WWE could fill up the empty spots using fan cutouts just like the SuperBowl event in February at this venue.
It was already reported by sources how WWE was considering the fan cutouts at Raymond James Stadium for WrestleMania 37, especially after NFL made them look good. Although Vince McMahon wasn’t fully agreed with the idea, it looks like he’s given a green signal and there will be a mix of real and fake fans in the crowd.
A closer look at WrestleMania 37 set construction has been surfaced with fan cutouts placed in various areas of the crowd. NFL sold their cutouts for around $100 each, but WWE has not let anything about selling these out.
Special entrances being planned at Wrestlemania 37
In more news from the Show of Shows set, we can expect a number of grand entrances for some of the superstars. A fan on Twitter has revealed pictures of WWE testing graphics flying drones at Raymond James Stadium ahead of this weekend’s WrestleMania 37. From these photos, it seems WWE could use drone formations during the entrances of “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, Bianca Belair, and Smackdown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks.
Pretty cool. Apparently they’re trying out some drones right now in preparation for WrestleMania. You can see Bianca’s lips and EST, Sasha’s shades, and Fiend’s Let Me In

The photos are showing The Fiend’s ‘Let Me In’ tagline, Bianca’s lips along with the ‘EST’ catchphrase followed by Sasha’s signature shades. The Fiend will compete against Randy Orton in a grudge match on Night Two of Wrestlemania 37 while Banks will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair in the main event of Night One on Saturday. The opening match on Night I will witness Drew McIntyre challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship.
