During the last hours, we have seen how the United States government has taken severe containment measures on the expansion of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). There has been talking that events, like the one on Friday Night SmackDown, have to be canceled due to government decisions, so it is highly likely that some of the upcoming WWE shows will be held at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
One of the most commented topics has been the future of WrestleMania 36 and its possible cancellation. The authorities of the city of Tampa, where the show is scheduled to take place, have an extraordinary meeting on Thursday to define the destination of the next major events. One of the events most at risk is WrestleMania 36, as it will be held at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida in front of approximately 60,000 spectators.
In addition, something that worries the authorities a lot and that could cause the turning point when making a decision, would be the arrival of fans from all over the world, even from countries or regions with more cases of the virus in question. Although for the moment WWE has not offered an official statement, it is expected that in the next few hours it will end up confirming the direction that the company will take.
The last thing that has been said about WrestleMania 36 is that it could change its date and take place in the summer, possibly during the month of July. The date and location of the show will not be specified, although it could take place in the same venue previously announced. Anyway, we will have to wait for the official statement from Tampa, which is scheduled to be released in the next few hours.
