In news that Vince McMahon and WWE have been anticipating for some time, the US state of Florida is about to give the green light to full capacity stadium events for the first time since the Coronavirus pandemic beset the world.
Prominent Florida journalist Jon Alba tweeted tonight:
He followed this up by clarifying that this ruling from state governor Ron DeSantis goes for any sports organisation in the state including the Jacksonville Jaguars (Owned by AEW owners the Khan family) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL team that play in the stadium that was supposed to hold WrestleMania 36 and will now seemingly be favourite to host WrestleMania 37.
WWE have concentrated their operations in Florida since the start of the pandemic, initially in the Performance Center and now hosting the Thunderdome at the Amway Center, both in Orlando.
This ruling will also give the green light to AEW to run Dynamite at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville with a full capacity. Could it also prompt WWE to move to an outdoor location of their own for their weekly shows in future?
