With this year’s WrestleMania set to take place on Saturday, April 10th and Sunday, April 11th at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, it should come as no surprise to think that the Show of Shows may take some inspiration from this past weekend’s Super Bowl – and one of the features we may see replicated is that of the cardboard cutout crowd.
While the official capacity of Raymond James Stadium is 65,890, social distancing measures meant the stadium was only one-third full with 22,000 humans in attendance. The rest of the stadium was not empty, though, as it was populated with inanimate cutouts of fans – and a new report from WrestleVotes suggests WWE are ready to follow suit.
The report says WWE was originally against the idea, but that the option will be discussed again due to the impressive nature of the Super Bowl.
Good news! Text from a source just now saying WWE will 100% discuss having the cutouts again. Says “it’s beyond dumb to not, RJS looked wonderful for what it was” https://t.co/gs59k4ru3k
