The makeover of WrestleMania 36 continues.
WWE announced Wednesday that its biggest show will take place over two nights on April 4-5 and will be hosted by former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. WrestleMania not only will take place at WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., but multiple locations over the two nights. All locations will be closed sets with only essential personnel because of the coronavirus pandemic.
WWE had announced on Monday that WrestleMania already was moving from its original location at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., to the Performance Center, but this takes it a step further.
Splitting WrestleMania into two days for the first time in its history will help WWE comply with the Centers for Disease Control guidelines of avoiding or canceling gatherings of 50 or more people and President Trump asking people to stay away from gatherings of 10 or more.
Both nights of WrestleMania will start at 7 p.m. on WWE Network and Gronkowski tweeted he will be on the “Friday Night SmackDown” this week to “tell you more” about this.
