WrestleMania 36 Live: WWE’s exclusive WrestleMania event will be held on April 4th (Saturday) and April 5th (Sunday).The promotion will classify the performance as “for one night”. In fact, WrestleMania 36 is the product of the current global coronavirus pandemic.
WWE is set to host WrestleMania 36 under the strangest circumstances ever.
Not only will the show be broadcast without any fans present amid the coronavirus pandemic, it will also take place over two nights and feature some new and unconventional stipulations.
With every other sport postponing or canceling the season, WWE could have more attention than it would have otherwise anticipated.
Let’s take a look at what you need to know about this year’s WrestleMania.
Venue: WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida
Start Time: 6 p.m. ET (Kickoff), 7 p.m. ET (main show)
How to Watch: WWE Network and select PPV providers
No matter what happens in the ring, WrestleMania 36 is going to be an event wrestling fans will never forget. Despite a global pandemic that’s forced the world into quarantine, the WWE will air its marquee pay-per-view, and for the first time ever it’s a two-night event.
The most unique WrestleMania in history is upon us. Billed as “too big for just one night” and pre-taped from an empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, as the coronavirus pandemic rages across the globe, WrestleMania 36 is sure to be a spectacle unlike any other. While there are 18 announced matches set to take place over the course of Saturday and Sunday, the specific card for each night has not been confirmed by WWE, leaving even more mystery surrounding the monumental event.
Among the key matches set for the event are Braun Strowman stepping in for Roman Reigns to challenge universal champion Goldberg and Brock Lesnar defending his WWE championship against 2020 Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre. There are also some unpredictable matches with unique stipulations, including The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles in a boneyard match and John Cena batting Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House match, neither of which have clearly-defined rules but may both turn out unlike anything WWE has presented previously.
We are in store for a wild ride over the next two nights, to be certain with at least eight hours of action expected this weekend. The WrestleMania 36 kickoff show will begin each night at 6 p.m. ET on WWE Network with the main card getting underway at 7 p.m. CBS Sports will be with you LIVE both nights, providing updates and highlights while the action goes down at the “Showcase of the Immortals.”
Marketed as a show that’s “too big for just one night,” this year’s Show of Shows is headlined by Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, Becky Lynch and Shayna Baszler battling it out for the Raw Women’s Title, Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley colliding for the NXT Women’s Championship, and Edge returning for his first one-on-one match since WrestleMania 27 as he takes on his good friend turned bitter rival Randy Orton.
