WWE WrestleMania 36 Now A 2-Night Event, Rob Gronkowski To Host
Doing things a little bit differently...
For those of you who've clamored for WrestleMania to be a two-night event, you're getting your wish.
WWE announced Wednesday that WrestleMania 36 will be stretched over two nights, encompassing Saturday, April 4, as well as its original Sunday, April 5 date.
Additionally, former NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski, who recently signed with WWE, has been named guest host for the event. He tweeted, "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"
The event will not only run at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, but also at "multiple other locations", according to a note from Figure 4 Weekly. WrestleMania was originally scheduled for Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, before the coronavirus outbreak led to plans drastically changing.
This marks only the second time in WWE history that a WrestleMania takes place on a day other than Sunday. WrestleMania 2 in 1986 occurred on a Monday night.
