We got another bombshell announcement about WrestleMania 36 tonight (Mar. 18). Even after Monday’s news that the show would move from Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium to WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando, there were rumors the show might not take place there on Sun., April 5.
But it will. The newest reveal is that it will ALSO happen on Sat., April 4 - the night NXT was originally supposed to have a TakeOver in Tampa Bay. And that’s not all. The two-night ‘Mania will also be hosted by the recently signed Rob Gronkowski.
It’s official! I’m hosting @WrestleMania this year...and it’s gonna be too big for just one night. For the 1st time, #WrestleMania will be a 2-NIGHT event: Saturday, April 4 AND Sunday, April 5 on @WWENetwork! Tell you more this Friday night on #SmackDown at 8 ET on @FOXTV.— Rob Gronkowski (@RobGronkowski) March 18, 2020
As Gronk mentions, he was already announced for the Mar. 20 SmackDown. So we’ll learn more when that show comes our way from The PC in a couple nights.
WWE’s announcement mentions five matches:
- Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar (c) for the WWE championship
- Goldberg (c) vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal title
- Becky Lynch (c) vs. Shayna Baszler for the Raw Women’s championship
- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
- The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles
But there are three others which have been confirmed as happening:
- Edge vs. Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match
- Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins
- Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley (c) for the NXT Women’s title
With the show happening over two nights, it seems likely we’ll get more. We’ll find out in the days to come.
