Yes… Vince McMahon aka the chairman/owner of WWE was late on making a decision for this year’s Wrestlemania which will be the 36th one. Originally, the event was going to be taken place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL but due to COVID-19, Vince decided to move Wrestlemania to the Performance Center in Orlando, FL but the show is gonna have no fans in attendance. The first Wrestlemania in history with no freakin’ audience!
In the beginning, fans were wondering if Vince is ever gonna cancel Wrestlemania due to the Chinese Virus outbreak and many even wanted him to cancel it like everyone else is cancelling events like crazy. For a while Vince wouldn’t do it. Then it was said that if Vince doesn’t cancel Wrestlemania, the city Tampa would have cancelled it themselves and I believe that’s when Vince finally decided to make a decision to move the show to the Performance Center in Orlando.
People wanted Vince to cancel Wrestlemania but you can’t cancel the biggest show ever in the world of sports and entertainment. You can’t do it. Really, one thing that wrestling haters out there will never admit is that Wrestlemania is the biggest event ever. I’m pretty sure Vince thought long and hard on whether or not to cancel ’cause keep in mind, it’s a very difficult decision to make. I’m sure it was driving him crazy which is why it took so long for him to finally respond.
Even though Wrestlemania 36 will be in a smaller venue with no live crowd, I’m still gonna watch Wrestlemania since I watch it every year. The headlining main event for ‘mania this year is Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre and it’s a shame they won’t be performing that match in front of 80,000 people or over. Instead, they’re going to do that match with no fans. All the fans will be watching at home either through the WWE Network or on PPV.
I’m still looking forward to Wrestlemania this year. It might be boring watching it this year since no live crowd to cheer and boo them on ’cause that’s what made Wrestlemania special over the years, the crowd reaction. It’s going to be weird seeing a WM without an audience but I’m watching anyways.
I’m happy Wrestlemania is still happening, though.
