It has been reported that the weather conditions in Tampa, Florida have caused some of the WrestleMania 37 set to get damaged.
Raymond James Stadium issued a weather warning earlier today and asked fans to seek shelter until the increment weather passed. Shortly later, the official stadium Twitter account sent out confirmation that the apparent storms would be passing.
‘WEATHER UPDATE: lightning threat has passed, all parking and gates are back OPEN! Fans may return to their seats. Free parking at HCC is now closed. Thanks for being patient fans!,’ the stadium wrote on Twitter.
WrestleMania 37 Set Damaged
The weather actually ripped some of the WrestleMania set, specifically the sails in the pirate boat. If you haven’t yet seen the set, the main entrance has a pirate ship with sails; these were ripped when the wind was ferocious throughout the stadium earlier.
Fightful Select reported that “men in hard hats were sent up to fix flags that were on top of the set’s ship and anything else that needs adjusted.”
The site also confirmed that “WWE had tarped off the video screens to protect them and a lot of the floor seating had blown over before being fixed.”
Hopefully all goes well as WWE prepares for the biggest weekend of the year.
