Wrestlemania 36 is set to go ahead but without fans and over two nights for the first time in its history.
Whilst most of the world has hit pause, WWE has not, with chairman and CEO Vince McMahon pushing ahead to ensure this year’s Wrestlemania 36 still goes ahead.
Although, it will be a completely unique Wrestlemania experience. Firstly, the show will be held over two nights for the first time ever. ‘The Show of Shows’ has been dubbed ‘too big for just one night’ and will be hosted by former NFL star Rob Gronkowski.
There will also be no fans in attendance. The original show was set to take place in Tampa, FL, but the current global health crisis saw those plans scuppered.
In fact, WWE has taped the Wrestlemania card this week from various locations.
