WWE needed to make some big changes to WrestleMania 36. The sudden rush of coronavirus panic created by a global pandemic means that 70,000 fans can no longer cram themselves into a stadium for the show of shows.
We’re still not certain that WWE will even be allowed to run WrestleMania from a closed WWE Performance Center. They might have a back-up plan in that case.
Things were changing very rapidly yesterday. Now WrestleMania will take place from multiple locations. This was explained a bit more later on.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that WWE switched their plans around on such short-notice that Triple H and Tom Phillips even made reference to WrestleMania as a one-night event. This was even after the company confirmed April 4th and 5th as the new dates for the show of shows.
“Just to give you an example of how quickly things are changing, during NXT you know the segments with Triple H and Tom Phillips they weren’t done live. I don’t know exactly when they were done. I know the Gargano/ Ciampa stuff was done yesterday, but the Tom Phillips and Triple H stuff I’m presuming was done this afternoon. So, they’re doing those cut-aways and they’re still talking about WrestleMania one night in 18 days like it’s one show before it was changed to two shows at the Performance Center before it was changed to two shows at the Performance Center and other locations. So, who knows what it’s going to be tomorrow?!”
This is a time when a lot of plans need to be fluid. As stated above, the city of Orlando could always step in and shut WWE down. It will be a very different type of road to WrestleMania this year as the asphalt turned to a rushing river rather quickly.
