WWE WrestleMania 37: Get yourself familiar with Tampa roadways and Raymond James Stadium

Getting ready for the trip to Tampa for WWE’s WrestleMania 37.

If driving, you want to familiarize yourself with the roads, especially in Downtown Tampa and west of downtown.

I made this video before Covid took WrestleMania 36 from Tampa.

Since Tampa gets a second chance to host its first WrestleMania with WrestleMania 37 on April 10 and 11, I decided to include the below videos.

NOTE: Take into account, I was discussing WrestleMania 36 Week in Tampa (not knowing Covid would emerge and ruin everything); so you can disregard part of the commentary. The videos below still display the stadium, roadways and surrounding area.

Hope it helps. Drive safely.

Raymond James Stadium, west of Amalie Arena and Tampa Convention Center, is the site for WrestleMania 37 on April 10 and 11.

Raymond James Stadium: 4201 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. in Tampa 33607

Capacity: 65,890 (25,000 each night for WrestleMania 37)

Key roads: I-4, I-275, North Dale Mabry Highway, North Himes Avenue, West Tampa Bay Boulevard, Tom McEwen Boulevard, West Columbus Drive, North Lois Avenue, West Heiter Street, West Woodlawn Avenue, West Ohio Avenue, West Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, West Douglas Street, West Braddock Street.

FCW on Dale Mabry Highway: Before the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, WWE developmental talent trained and wrestled at FCW on 4535 S. Dale Mabry Hwy. in Tampa 33611.

Raymond James Stadium is home to the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the XFL Tampa Bay Vipers. The stadium hosted the NFL’s Super Bowl LV, which the Buccaneers won in February. Former WWE 24-7 Champ Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski, last year’s WrestleMania co-host, was a key member of that Super Bowl winning team.

The NFL opened the stadium to 25,000 fans for Super Bowl LV, giving WWE a learning curve for procedures, protocol, CDC guidelines with fans in attendance.

With limited seating, there will be plenty of room for WWE’s awesome production team to construct a fantastic set for the two shows.

The stadium is across from the spring training home of the MLB New York Yankees and summer minor league home of the Florida State League Class A Tampa Yankees.

This is WWE’s fifth WrestleMania in Florida (three in Orlando, one in Miami Gardens, one in Tampa).
