WWE issued a press release noting that the official attendance for night one of WrestleMania was 25,675 inside Raymond James Stadium.
There was a rain delay as the show began at 8 PM EST. This led to the likes of MVP, Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens, New Day (Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods & Big E) and Seth Rollins cutting on-the-spot promos to kill time.
WWE 2K22 was officially announced. Rey Mysterio was the focus of the promotional video.

Also I’m not trolling anyone, I just think it’s a safe approach that I thought would be worth mentioning. It occurred to me last minute too, and it would’ve tremendously affected the matches that night if I hadn’t done it, + it potentially prevented some injuries from occurring.
