Tickets go on sale Friday for WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium. Ray Jay will seat 25,000 fans — 36% capacity — for each night of the April 10-11 event, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

What it means: After the Super Bowl, WrestleMania body-slamming its way here means Tampa Bay is leading the nation in opening back up.

  • Safety protocols will include seating pods, enforced social distancing, temperature checks, health screenings, cashless concessions and mobile ticketing.
  • Masks will be required and free masks will be given out at the door, like at the Super Bowl.

Fun fact: Hulk Hogan, Chyna, "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes and "The Doctor of Thuganomics" John Cena have all lived in Tampa Bay.
