In the first evening dedicated to the WWE Showcase of the Immortals, Wrestlemania 37, the company had to face a really complicated mishap, which until a few days ago was not foreseen, but which, seeing the location chosen by the WWE, could easily be counted among the possible causes of delays and postponements of the show.
A few hours after the most awaited event from the whole world regarding our beloved sport-show, in Tampa Bay a huge downpour was in fact unleashed which contributed to delaying the start of the show, with the start time, which has instead been significantly moved beyond.

The great downpour unleashed over the heads of the fans took away some pieces of the set built by the federation at the beginning of the athletes' entrance ramp, with the pirate galleon which in fact saw some of its pieces collapse, including the tarps that served as sails.

Due to the rain, Mandy Rose was also the victim of a slip on the entrance ramp in her match, in which she fell to sit, between the mixture of disbelief and hilarity of the same blonde from Raw. Even during the live broadcast, the same WWE reporters wanted to exorcise the moment, calling this year's edition of Wrestlemania: Wrania, with a clear pun with the term rain, which in English means rain.
In spite of everything, the first evening would have ended in the best way, as the WWE had extensively organized for some time, with the ring that has always been covered in its entirety by the structure built above it, so as not to get wet.
