Here are some interview highlights from WWE’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon talking to TVInsider about future WrestleManias and more.
Stephanie McMahon on why WWE announced the next three WrestleMania dates (Tampa Bay in 2021, Dallas in 2022 and Los Angeles in 2023) all at once:
“We wanted to give our fans some hope during these challenging times. A lot of people plan their vacations around WrestleMania because it’s like a big family reunion. People come from over 60 countries and all 50 states.”
Stephanie on WWE planning to have some fans in the stands at this year’s WrestleMania:
“There are a lot of unknowns [because of the pandemic]. We’re very fortunate the Super Bowl [is at] Raymond James Stadium [because] will be a lot of key learning from the NFL and the local organizing committees. We’re still in the planning stages for all of that.”
Stephanie also commented on why WWE is going with a two-night WrestleMania this year on April 10 and April 11:
“We want to maximize the value. The two nights are unique to the times. [We have plans] to go back to one night for future WrestleMania events, but of course we will see what happens this year. We want to deliver the best possible value we can for our fans who are hopefully able to attend and for those watching all around the world.”
Stephanie also spoke about tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble event:
“I’m just anxious to see the stories unfold. Also, the surprises where you know never know who is going to be joining in. There is that excitement of who is first or last. When it gets down to the last six to four competitors and really don’t know what is going to happen. That’s what I’m looking forward to most.”
