WrestleMania is a long event, too long for certain and certainly far too long to be sustained for six hours without an audience in a small hall, as will, unfortunately, be the case this year.
Indeed, due to the measures taken to combat the spread of the coronavirus, WWE is forced to organize this year’s edition of the event live from its Performance Center like she’s been doing since last week for her weekly shows. But this year there will be another big change.
WWE has indeed announced on its site that WrestleMania 36 will be held on two evenings. The show will take place on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5, which is why NXT TakeOver: Tampa will not take place on Saturday evening as originally planned.
The Performance Center should also not be the only venue for WrestleMania 36 this year, according to rumors.
In addition, the event will be hosted by former American footballer Rob Gronkowski, who recently signed an agreement with WWE. He promised to tell us more this Friday at SmackDown.
It’s official! I’m hosting @WrestleMania this year…and it’s gonna be too big for just one night. For the 1st time, #WrestleMania will be a 🚨2-NIGHT🚨event: Saturday, April 4 AND Sunday, April 5 on @WWENetwork! Tell you more this Friday night on #SmackDown at 8 ET on @FOXTV.

An interesting idea that we hope WWE will think about for future editions of WrestleMania – we’re talking about the two evenings of course, not Gronkowski.
