Drone Footage Captures Construction of WrestleMania Inside Tampa Stadium

A drone operator was afforded a sneak peek at preparations for WrestleMania in Tampa, Florida, after he flew a drone over Raymond James stadium where the event begins on April 10.

Jackson Paul was visiting the stadium in a bid to see if any Super Bowl paraphernalia remained after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the game in their home stadium in February.

Unaware that WrestleMania was occurring in the venue, Paul was taken aback by the images his drone produced.

“I couldn’t see into the stadium so I had no clue what was inside but I hoped there would be Super Bowl things still around,” he told Storyful. “I was a bit let down but also curious so I went further and deeper for longer and at first I thought it was a concert.”

Reports said 25,000 fans are expected to attend the event, providing WWE with their first live audience in more than a year. Credit: Jackson Paul via Storyful
