• Real Reason Behind WrestleMania 36 Becoming A Two Day Event

WWE announced last night that WrestleMania 36 will now be held on April 4th & 5th and it will also be held at multiple locations.

PWInsider went into detail as to why WWE decided to split their biggest show of the year into two days:

“If they broadcast the entire WrestleMania card over one day, they would run into a lot of production issues just in terms of the logistics of having and managing so many talents, producers, staff, etc. in one place at the same time under the current restrictions.

The multiple locations will allow WWE to switch from place to place and keep the broadcast from looking and feeling monotonous. That could also allow WWE to pre-tape material (and even matches) for insertion into the broadcast, as a closed set might make it easier for the company to keep spoilers from leaking.

Having a portion of the show pre-produced could also glitz up the final product and allow the show to have a grander feel, since this is WrestleMania.”
