The ongoing virus has disrupted several sports events around globally and WrestleMania is one of its victims. The schedule of the World Wrestling Entertainment was forcibly shifted due to the virus pandemic and now is assumed that it will be distributed over two days. It is also assumed that the show would be held at the Performance Centre in Orlando, Florida.
According to the sources, WWE announced in a press release, “WrestleMania, for the first time, will be held as a two-night event streaming on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and available on pay-per-view,” The two-night pop culture extravaganza will be hosted by three-time Super Bowl Champion Rob Gronkowski. … WrestleMania will not only take place at WWE’s training facility but will include multiple locations over two nights. All locations will be closed sets with only essential personnel.”
They also added to a press release stating that released early Tuesday morning, “In coordination with local partners and government officials, WrestleMania and all related events in Tampa Bay will not take place. However, WrestleMania will still stream live on Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view.”
“Only essential personnel will be on the closed set at WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida to produce WrestleMania,” it further added.
In the history of Wrestle mania, this would be the first event which might include multiple locations since the second edition of the event which was shot in Uniondale, New York; Rosemont, Illinois and Los Angeles.
The declaration was released days after the initial statement of the company stating that the event will take place behind closed doors and without any crowd.
