As we noted last night, WWE announced that WrestleMania 36 will now be a two night event.
Below is the announcement:
WrestleMania too big for just one night: Unprecedented two-night WrestleMania to be hosted by Rob Gronkowski on WWE Network
“WrestleMania 36 is now set for a historic two-night presentation on WWE Network with former New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski hosting The Show of Shows at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Saturday, April 4, and Sunday, April 5.
The 2020 edition of The Showcase of the Immortals will make history as the first to span across multiple days.
WrestleMania will not only take place at WWE’s training facility but will include multiple locations over two nights.
Titles and legacies are on the line as WrestleMania 36 features a loaded slate of matches. Royal Rumble Match winner Drew McIntyre challenges WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, Universal Champion Goldberg defends his title against Roman Reigns, and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch looks to fight off the rise of Shayna Baszler. Also, 16-time World Champion John Cena returns to battle “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, AJ Styles hopes to put the “final nail in the coffin” of The Undertaker’s career and much more.
