WWE Wrestlemania 37 2021 Day 1 Results: WWE kicked off in front of the live audience for the first time in over a year at The Showcase of the Immortals. And it was only fitting that WWE’s biggest event of the year kick off with WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon and the entire WWE roster welcoming the WWE Universe back before sharing in Bebe Rexha’s stirring performance of “America the Beautiful” with the crowd at Raymond James Stadium.
Although the Tampa Bay weather delayed The Showcase of the Immortals for a few minutes, WrestleMania was officially back in business.
